    First time at Mamnoon and will not be the last. I took some customers there for dinner on the recommendation of one whom had eaten at Mamnoon before. Amazing Persian food. Flavors were intense and well balanced. We shared several of the small plates which I would recommend. Wine list comprised French influenced wines from Lebanon. The one we tried was lovely. For my main course I had the chicken meat balls filled with tarragon and other spices. So much flavor. The rice...the rice! SO GOOD. Wait staff was knowledgeable and impeccable. Truly a wonderful dining experience.

    The food was phenomenal: unique, well portioned, great recommendations, uncommon ingredients, and traditional. Our server was knowledgeable, courteous, and not overbearing. The ambiance was dark, high energy, loud, with techno/traditional music (not sure on the genre). We were seated on a tiny table that was so close to everyone else that we were literally in everybody's conversation, which made us diminish and reserve our own conversation. We felt claustrophobic and uncomfortable

    Love it every time except this one which was a total failure. We arrived 4 minutes before our 830PM (Friday) reservation and were not seated until 912PM. We enquired about the status of our table every 7-10m and were always told 5-10m more minutes. After standing outside for 30m or so, we ordered a pair of Mamnoon Mules only to be delivered cocktails with lime garnishes still having the produce sticker on them - now in our cups. Not happy campers to start our meals 43 minutes late. Beyond the sub-par front of house, our waitress was great and the food was brilliantly done- as both have been on my previous 3 visit. It just was not worth the 42 minute wait standing outside.

    Mamnoon has a beautiful ambience and really good food and drinks! Yes yes a little $$$ but it's well worth it. The waitstaff were not attentive it took 10 minutes after we seated for anyone to come and sat anything to us. We had to ask several time for the check that took a half hour to get. Over all good food and fun place horrible service.

    My dining experience was amazing. I loved tasting the truly delicious foods of Lebanon and Syria. The servers and even the owner, who was present and ensuring that every diner had a first class evening, were the best. The foods were beautifully flavored with exotic herbs and spices. I think my favorite aspect of dinner at Mamnoon is learning about and experiencing the incredible hospitality of this gem of middle eastern culture.

    We regularly fly to Seattle to enjoy the food, the sites, the vibe. There are so many wonderful restaurants from which to choose - but I can honestly say that this is among the best ever! The food is absolutely delicious and full of little surprises, the waitstaff is dedicated and knowledgeable, and the overall experience is worth repeating again and again. We had a lovely evening, ate more than we should have, and can't wait to go back!

    The folks at Mamnoon are willing to go way out of their way to provide a customer with a great meal!! I arrived for this visit to find the menu had changed and that a beloved dish was no longer there. SAD! I told our neat waiter how much I loved that dish and asked when it would be back. He very politely told me that it definitely would be back, but they were trying some new dishes for spring. Turned out that the owner overheard the conversation, went to the kitchen and five minutes later came the news that they would make the dish, just because I loved it so much. WOW!!! PS. The rest of the meal was wonderful too !

    Beautiful, flavorful food, great for sharing (in fact, necessary to share!). The wait staff is very helpful and kind understanding what may be unusual things on the menu. The ambience is lovely. Calm, quiet place for Capital Hill.

    Our only complaint was our seating arrangement. We made reservations and we sat in the back, near the kitchen entrance. It was not crowded at all and we had to ask to be sat somewhere else. Other than that, it was great!

    Been here few time and it's just wonderful! Food quality is great and service was wonderful too. I recommend making a reservation in advance. It gets very busy especially during weekend nights. You must start your evening with a selection of their tasty appetizers!
