Lebanese Taverna - Washington DC
Great LunchI hadn't been to this location for a while, so I was surprised to see the beautiful renovation. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was perfect for a lunch date. I definitely recommend it!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Mother's Day BrunchWe had not been to Lebanese Taverna since they renovated, and wow, what a change for the better. While they lost 20 seats, it is now not nearly as crowded for the diners, and is less noisy. They had a special brunch on Mother's Day, $35 per person for unlimited small plates from a special menu. It was great to make a meal out of the small plates, and every one of them was really good. I expected them to be very crowded since they always were in the past, but to my surprise there were many open tables. Once all the old customers know they have reopened, I'm sure it will once again be packed with diners who appreciate their excellent Lebanese food.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect ServiceImpeccable service -- by far the best service I have ever received in DC.

We had ordered two fish, but only one arrived. The restaurant insisted on bringing something in the interim, and also sent us a complimentary dessert. Food delicious, especially salmon. More traditional, but as good in its way as Zaytinya. Sitting in the back room was much quieter than up front.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautifully remodelled! GreatBeautifully remodelled! Great job.

This is a great variety of dishes and perfect with a glass of wine for an outdoor lunch4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent and InterstingThis is one of my favorite restaurants in DC. If you are looking for good food and are adventurous enough to want to dip into new cuisine, you will really enjoy this place. It also has great ambience--very pretty and soothing aesthetic.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful renewalThe newly renovated Lebanese Taverna is terrific! It is much brighter with the white stone arched look, without the feeling of being at Grand Central Station. Both the food and the wine/beer selections were excellent, and the waiter was extremely patient in going through the menu with our semi-uninitiated group. Despite a big crowd on a Sunday night, the service was efficient and attentive without creating a hovering presence.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious as always! GreatDelicious as always! Great look following the remodel!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMHadn't been to Lebanese TavernaHadn't been to Lebanese Taverna since the interior remodeling, and now I don't know why I waited so long! I always loved the outdoor dining there, but now the indoor restaurant is one of my top neighborhood faves.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first time here - andOur first time here - and we were thrilled. So was our six year old. We tried a ton of things and all was excellent.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMslow startThe service was very slow at the beginning. But later the manager himself came over and made sure that we were being taken care of. After that the service became a lot more attentive.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Great TimeWith many great restaurants to choose from in the neighborhood this one stands above the crowd. Decor and ambiance are of finest. The hummus is to die for. My wife said it all when she proclaimed, "I'm in heaven."3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food, good for large groupsWe went there with a party of ten. The staff was very accommodating. It was a busy night and the place was packed. We have been there many times. It was suggested that we do a family style priced fixed dinner. Unfortunately, this did not highlight the amazing food at LebaneseTaverna. 2 of the ten were not delighted with the food. However, the majority liked it. My suggestion dine with a smaller group or check that the family style menu pleases all. We never miss Lebanese Taverna on a trip to DC.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMBeen going here for years.Been going here for years. Recently remodeled, food remains outstanding.
