Diner Reviews
  • "Excllent dining experience - good time was had by all"
    Dined on 6/22/2013
  • "Mamnoon is a great place to dine. Great food, ambience and service. only cons, though minor, were finding street parking and mosquitos at entrance! But the food and service more than compensated for that."

  • "We had been looking forward to trying Mamnoon based on other recommendations. Unfortunately incredibly poor service took all the pleasure out of the meal. Server was patronizing, inattentive, and statements made us not want order dishes. Around us food and drinks were delivered to the wrong tables and the wait for checks was a source of complaints by more than just our table. That being said - all the dishes we tried were enjoyable but not to the level of craving. We would not likely go back based on this experience."

  • "Every dish was fragrant, full of spices that enticed, properly cooked (especially the of fish) and intriguing. Not food you can get just anywhere. Highlights: the halibut with smoked wheat (different, delectable), lamb kefta (redolent with spices), fried cauliflower (again, the heavenly spices)"

  • "Eating at Mamnoon was a revelation. My exposure to Middle Eastern food has mainly been huumus/falafel/baba ghanouj and tabuli. You can get these here, but there's so much more, and with very interesting spicing. At lunch, our waiter was superb--he gave us his recommendations and when he forgot to put the one remaining pita in my doggy bag, he threw in two fresh ones instead. Our waiter at dinner was not quite so solicitous but was fine. My one complaint is that the place is a bit pricy. Dinner for two, with only one alcoholic drink, plus two desserts, was almost $90. Lunch for two, with no alcohol, one delicious sandwich, two appetizers, and a salad was $32. That said, I can't wait to return to try more of the menu. Ambience is very modern."

  • "Although everything was great we'd like to just order every small plate on the menu - they were exceptional"

  • "the staff is very helpful and friendly. Everything on their menu is amazing! the flavors are perfect, and you can always swipe up the remaining sauces with the delicious bread."

  • "Mamnoon is an attractive location populated by a very diverse group of diners. It's a comfortable environment and the service was not-too-formal and very good. The food is imaginative, detailed in its preparation, and flat-out delicious. Everything we ordered (our group included Syrians that relish the cuisine) was excellent. There were no real expectations for Mamnoon, but surely any would've been exceeded."

  • "We dined at Mamnoon on a Tuesday evening for our anniversary and were not disappointed with the food. We love the Za'atar with pita, the Muhammara and fried cauliflower tarrator. The koresh entree, crispy chicken thigh, crispy rice and a sauce with artichokes was good but not great. That might be because we are not big fans of artichoke. Dessert was a light chocolate tart with warm spices which we happily shared. The server was not very engaging and then forgot to box up the large amount of Muhammara we couldn't eat but asked to take home. The restaurant got busy and we could see he was in the weeds so didn't say anything. Otherwise we enjoyed our second dining experience here."

  • "We were a larger group going in for dinner….we called the restaurant to let them know we may be a bit late and were told that wasn't a problem as no one had our table booked after our party. Well….we got to the restaurant almost on time and had to wait almost an hour for our table! Hostess offered us complimentary flat bread but there was a small bar area so we stood the entire time we waited. The food was interesting and varied. Our waiter was very nice but did push more entrees to share than we wanted. The dishes were all excellent. The ambiance was vibrant and sometimes it was hard to hear the waiter. We felt very welcomed by the entire wait staff and we will return."

  • "The food was fantastic - everything we had was delicious. Our waitperson was very informed about the menu and embodied the vibe of the restaurant. We love cool, hip lounges for drinks, but it wasn't the right area for dinner. The table next to us was complaining about it being too dark to see their food and we couldn't read our own menus."

  • "We loved the food (especiallythe roasted cauliflower was wonderful), and the service was very attentive Looking forward to returning."

  • "I've now been a couple of times, and recommend both the food and the atmosphere whole-heartedly. The staff is always friendly, is spot-on with their recommendations (I'm not that familiar with Middle Eastern food), and make sure that everyone is well taken care of. I've really enjoyed the food, and the ambience is great for either a work or personal dinner. The Lebanese red wines on the list are a fun bonus as well - who knew there were such good wines from the region? I will go back without question."

  • "The food was delicious, the server knowledgeable and efficient, the space a bit dark but interesting. Go!"

  • "It was my firth time at this place . I keep on coming back because of the amazing food . It reminds me of one of my favorite places in London. The only thing I have always complained about is the service . The restaurant hires young, inexperienced servers who have no idea what they are doing. All dishes arrived nearly together including fish that we ordered as a main course ! Time to start saving on waiters and hire some experienced ones ..."

  • "The food was just great. Ordered the hummus with greek yogurt, and it was totally not what I expected, but it was so good I wanted to take a bath in it. The taboulleh was exactly the kind I liked: light on the grain, heavy on the parsley. The beef kebab was perfectly cooked. The chicken was a tad dry, but so flavorful that it barely mattered. The waiter recommended an excellent greek wine, as well. All round, a memorable meal and I will definitely come back."

  • "Great food, attentive staff, good location. All around the dinner was excellent! We had 4 or 5 plates all fresh and tasty! We did have to wait awhile at one point for our food. The waitress did notice and was trying to get us our food, but they were pretty busy on a Saturday night, no major. The only downside was the dessert, it's expensive $9 each and not that great. We ordered 4 and none were great or amazing. Stick to dinner, then walk some where for dessert!"

  • "It was a bit loud, but the food was served fast and very good."
    Dined on 5/26/2013
  • "We went as a fairly large group of 7 for a birthday celebration, and the restaurant was rather busy, making the service slow. We ended up spending nearly 3 hours there. We've seen other groups come and go in about an hour and a half. We didn't mind spending our time there at all, but one should be aware that this isn't a place for a quick sit-down bite - that's what their take-out stall next door is for. The restaurant is nicely decorated with great ambiance for groups, though our table was a bit rickety and cheap. The food was excellent. The hummus and muhammara are amazing, and I haven't had such tender beef for a while. Our group found the desserts unimpressive. They're very mildly flavored, and perhaps our palates aren't used to it."
    Dined on 5/26/2013
  • "My wife and I had an early dinner here and was blown away by the food. We ordered 3 apps and the Lamb Kefta and we were both blown away by the flavors. The Beet dip and Cauliflower apps are to die for. Get there!"

  • "We had a fantastic experience at Mamnoon. I can only assume that the few negative reviews I've seen had to do with the newness of the restaurant. We were a group of 6 (2 kids) who shared many dishes, and I don't think there was a miss in the bunch. We shared the muhamarra, fried cauliflower, grated beets, tenderloin, red lentil soup, and others. All were literally fantastic. The chicken and beet soup (borsch) we also tried, and they were good but not quite as stand-out. Even our kids loved everything, especially the red lentil soup (which we got 2 of). I will add that this is a rather expensive restaurant, if I lived in Seattle it would probably rank as an "occasion" place. But I'd sure look forward to those occasions..."

  • "Dishes were delightfully prepared and flavor profiles were spot on. I was disappointed that the staff didn't take more pride in the culture of the food, but they were attentive and catered to my gluten free diet, which gave extra points in my book. Will definitely return."
    Dined on 5/25/2013
  • "The food is great here. The prices are good allowing you to try a number of different dishes. We had a few starters and shared a main and loved it. Reminded us of being in a fine Turkish restaurant. A very cool part of Capitol Hill. would definitely go back."
    Dined on 5/24/2013
  • "This restaurant is most fun if you share lots of small plates with your friends. The bill can add up - but it's a very social evening and the food is interesting and good. Our waiter was very helpful, recommending quantities and types of dishes."
    Dined on 5/22/2013
  • "The menu offered some unusual and interesting choices though expensive. I have been cooking from the Jerusalem Cookbook which uses similar spices and meats so i was curious to see what was on the menu. We liked the fried cauliflower and grilled eggplant. The Fatoush salad was unremarkable and the shrimp was overcooked and tough. The presentation of the dishes was appealing and our waiter helpful and friendly. I am not fond of Rose Water or other flowery flavors so my cocktail was like drinking perfume. That is a personal preference, of course. Generally, I do not like very noisy restaurants and one person at our table was facing the service area which was not very pleasant. We were also sitting very close to an emergency door."

  • "This was our second trip to Mamnoon - the first was Valentine's Day and had a set menu. The food was delicious, service was incredible, and the decor was gorgeous."
    Dined on 5/19/2013
  • "notably twists on many middle eastern standards. We were lucky enough for it to be "fresh' chick pea season. The grated beet dish was another surprising tasty twist on beet appetizers. Eggplant had just the right amount of grilled smoky flavor and the fish over rice was excellent. Chicken kebob very moist and sweet. Would probably skip the bottled beer and go with a cocktail next time."
    Dined on 5/19/2013
  • "Overall the place was great and the food was delicious. Our bread basket took a long time getting to the table, but the rest of the service was great. Will definitely be back."

  • "WE are three friends who get together as a group about once a year, so our attention is really not on thoughtful menu choices. Our waiter stepped in and brought a steady and ready parade of excellent selections. He also recomended a white wine that none of us were familiar with that was the perfect complement. Each dish was better than the one before, and we ended with two meat selections and then two desserts, all of which were picked for us and served beautifully. I think we were a hard table to deal with since we were so focused on our social exchanges, but our waiter provided the perfect person whose choices were flawless. The food was outstanding; tasty without being weird."

  • "Can't think of anything negative. A small, but very well done wine list. Menu items from very exotic, to mildly exotic. Very fresh ingredients. Owners give full attention to clientele. Very well done and interesting ambience."
    Dined on 5/15/2013
  • "I've been on multiple occasions and each time the food and service has been fantastic! I'm usually with carnivores but as a vegetarian I always walk away happily satiated. I highly reccomend the cauliflower (I can eat two myself) and the milk pudding dessert. last time there I brought a couple co-workers from Cali and the "foodie snobs' raved about it. Do yourself a favor and go..."

  • "Excellent flavorful food, good combinations & unique mixtures of textures & spices."

  • "After reading review in the paper, we were excited to try this new restaurant . We found it noisy but energetic. The food is unusual and very salty. The meat was bland and over cooked. The small plates gave us a chance to try many dishes. We think Turquaz is a better choice for atmosphere and quality of food."

  • "This was one of the best Lebanese restaurants I have been to in a while. I have had my share of authentic Lebanon fare and this was fabulous. My favorite dish was the Kibbeh and Fried Cauliflower. I cannot wait to go back and share the experience with my friends."
    Dined on 5/12/2013
  • "The food was amazing as was the wine (try the stuffed fish). Our server seemed annoyed and impatient. Noise level is quite high given the interior design. It is a beautiful space and we'll be returning again soon."

  • "Tried dinner here and it was good. Brunch was even better."
    Dined on 5/11/2013
  • "The food was fantastic but the service really lacked. We sat at our table for quite some time before anyone came to the table. Having never had Middle Eastern food before, I was disappointed in the lack of information our server provided about the food and would have liked some recommendations. Our party of 4 were seated at a large round table fit for 6 right in front of the bar area which saw a lot of traffic from the servers. We also had our drinks delivered incorrect and the bartender seemed very put out when they were sent back. Overall we enjoyed the food but the service killed the experience. I really wanted to like this place!"
    Dined on 5/10/2013
  • "Ambiance is amazing and service was attentive and well informed. The food was fresh and distinctive yet small portioned. The tabbouleh offered a scant 1/2 cup and 3 small leaves of hearts of romain for $12. It was enough for two people to enjoy 2-3 small bites but for a table of 3 or more you would have to double order on all items. A unique dining experience for special occasion but a bit pricey overall."

  • "We loved this restaurant, the ambiance and the food. This was the best middle-eastern food in Seattle. Everything was fresh and tasty. Will definitely go back."

  • "Mamnoon is a delicious and cultural addition to Cap Hill and Seattle's food scene. Rivals Shanik for ethnic, spiced fare. Order lots of starters, especially the fried cauliflower and the okra. Everything we had was excellent and we can't wait to return and order a whole different set of menu items! They have a great wine list including a rare and delicious Lebanese label, Chateau Musar."
