    The vibrant flavors, colors, shapes and sounds at Mamnoon makes me want to buy a condo across the street so I could make this my nightly watering hole. I appreciated the friendly, knowledgeable, and patient (because our server could tell we needed a little help in ordering) staff. Thank you for the fantastic experience. PS: Your take-out counter adds to graciousness and approachability of your restaurant.

    I've dined at Mamnoon 4 times now and each time I've been impressed with how the room is handled and how the food is presented. Always with panache. The food is always cooked to perfection and the flavors sublime. I have come to crave their cauliflower dish. The cocktails are inventive and a delightful surprise at times. But the narouma cake? You MUST try it. Save room.

    Went with our vegetarian friends, so were fixated on small plate menu. Large plates were more meat-based this time. We ate through the entire small plate menu. Wonderful flavors and a fun way to eat. A little on the pricey side, though quality of food was great. Especially enjoyed cauliflower. Dolmathes were meager and not impressive. Overall, Worst part of evening was finding parking in this very urban neighborhood.

    It seems that everything on the menu is unusual and superb in presentation and taste. I have so many favorites that I tend to order them every time...need to branch out try everything else on the menu. I guess I need to go to Mamnoon more often. I look forward to that.

    First time at Mamnoon and went there on a friends recommendation. Food was fantastic, service was ok (forgot the sides, cancelled one of them after two reminders, otherwise we were well tended to). Portions are on the smaller side which worked well for us. All in all, quite pricey!

    My husband and I stumbled upon this place about a month ago but we only had room for a few appetizers since we had just had dinner elsewhere. This was our second time back for a full meal and it was fantastic...the food is absolutely delicious, the service is spot on and the cocktails are SO good. Try #11 if you like a little spice...

    This was my first time at Mamnoon and being somewhat of a picky eater I was not sure how I would like the restaurant. But our waitress was very gracious and when we specified items we did not like (such as cilantro) she guided us to menu items that we might enjoy. We ordered a sampler of lunch items. which we shared at our table of three. It was fun and the food was good. I would definitely go again.

    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 !
