Diner Reviews
  • "All we got to try this time was the dolma (great as usual), served cold with yogurt and the dessert, heavenly."

  • "The patio here is wonderful for lunch. They have taken down the tree that was the centerpiece but have added umbrellas so there is plenty of shade. The food is always good here and the wait staff are attentive."

  • "Great place! Unique atmosphere, non descript from the outside, but cozy and charming with a nice outdoor patio. The food was terrific and the waiters were attentive and professional. I would go back again for sure."

  • "Great place for great atmosphere and really homey Middle Eastern fare. Their meats were soft and offerings a little out of the ordinary. The manager also seemed really interested in helping us learn more about the culture where the food came from. My only complaint, it seems that the pace of service is a bit slow. We went into the restaurant but had to wait a few minutes while everyone was attending to someone else. There were only about two people who seemed to have the authority to seat people."

  • "I like this restaurant, but my only complaint is that they have no Vegetarian entree's. The only things that are vegetarian are the appetizers :-("

  • "I was very surpised that the food was just ok, after all the rave reviews. I had the stuffed eggplant which was tasty, but so cold I think some of the flavors were stifled. Same with the stuffed grape leaves. I know they were meant to be served cold, but it was like eating food straight from the fridge. The plate presentations were very pretty, and service was friendly and attentive. The environment was really cute. Too bad the food was just ok. The chicken kabob was in fact very good, but for the price, 4 bites was a little dissapointing."

  • "Delicious mix of Armenian and Lebanese food, very flavorful, fresh and healthy. Quaint, intimate dining rooms w/ a nice outdoor patio in back. Very friendly and prompt service. A warm and pleasing experience all around."

  • "Really nice early Saturday night dinner at 6:30. Too chilly for the patio tho they had a few heaters. Indoors really nice decor, tho will get noisy with a boisterous full house. Service out of this world - servers and bus staff always coming around, checking, helping, laughing. You didn't have just one server, you had the whole crew! Great place to share mezze appetizers. Main entrees limited but were dee-licious ( Mantee-licious! ). Special desserts were pricey but absolutely unique, could easily be shared among four people. When most of the food were mezze plates shared among four, with two entrees shared among four, and a dessert, the final tally was amazingly low for the quality and the experience. Give it a try, go early, you'll enjoy"

  • "We were on business in Universal City and wanted a restaurant that was not a chain. We booked Mantee on the recommendation of other Open Table diners and were very pleasantly surprised. We had a lovely patio table out back on a beautiful sunny day. Our server was wonderful and our lunch special plates were delicious and plentiful. We would definitely return on our next visit. The inside dining room looked small so be patient if the back patio is not open."

  • "Love this family-run place -- they are lovely, and the food is phenomenal and unusual -- I've been eating Lebanese food my whole life and this place introduced to me some great dishes."
