Just Like Mama used to make!
I am Middle Eastern (Lebanese) so I have a trained pallet for middle eastern cuisine. Hands down the best middle eastern food in Los Angeles. Closest thing to homemade tasting Lebanese cuisine!

Everything at Marouch was
Everything at Marouch was delicious. The portions are quite copious. The Meza for 4 which is supposed to be appetizers is more than enough for a full dinner for four. The best hummus and best baklava in town!

Marouch has the best Middle
Marouch has the best Middle Eastern food I've ever tasted. Everything we ate was perfectly fresh and home made. The restaurant is charming and the service was excellent.

Really good fresh food no frills
The food was really good and fresh and the service was friendly and attentive.
This place is great for families and sharing, but if you are looking for romance, this is not that kind of place.
We were there for Mother's Day with 12 people and everyone really enjoyed themselves.
We will definitely go back.

A great neighborhood place
A great neighborhood place serving Lebanese/Armenian food. Wait staff is particularly friendly and hospitable! Hearty portions too.

According to other reviewers, they had already mentioned not letting the facade fool you. I too was taken aback by its location upon sight, but-I put that aside (just like the other reviewers said to do) and once you get through the front door; elegance, hospitality, welcoming and friendly. This truly is a diamond in the rough. Just don't get fooled by the outside! GO IN!!!!

The food was hit and miss.
The food was hit and miss. The dip mouhamara was probably the best I have ever had at a middle- eastern restaurant. Lamb chops were tender and flavorful. The quails, however, were overcooked and the Lebanese sausage were so-so. Dessert was a bit too sweet.
Of note the restaurant is not in a good neighborhood and parking is very limited.

Best in Hood
If I lived closer I would have dinner at this restaurant many many times a week. Great home-style food. Comfortable atmosphere.

Awesome homemade food!
Better baba ganoush than I've eaten at restaurants in the Middle East. Everything is homemade. Best lemonade (also homemade) that I've had in years.

Simply good food and excellent service. This restaurant elevates the neighborhood, and elevates ethnic food. My family and I all felt at ease, almost like visiting friends who cook really well!

We came with a large party on a Saturday and the waiter was great We asked for a larger set up and he graciously complied. This was my first visit, but not my son's and we were there for his birthday. The food was great and the service matched. They even brought my son a birthday dessert, even though we didn't say anything to them.
Will definitely come back!
I have already told others about them.

This place is tastes so good.
This place is tastes so good. Every bite of every dish tastes so good. Dishes you've tasted a thousand times but this time they are perfect. And they are such nice and genuine people.

Let The Owner Order for You!
Five of us went for an early dinner after seeing a Sunday matinee performance of "Smoke and Mirrors." (Don't miss it!) The owner suggested we order "family style" and we eagerly agreed.
I'm so glad we did, as we relished each and every plate of appetizers and kabobs presented to us. (However, I believe the pickled turnips might be an acquired taste.) And had we lived nearby, instead of in San Diego, we could have easily taken enough leftovers home for another meal for two hungry diners.
All of us ate more than our fill, four of us shared a bottle of wine, three of us had Turkish coffee, we left a generous tip (the service was superb!), and yet we paid just $40 each. You can't eat that well and do better than that!

I have been in middle east for 2 years but this is the best Lebanese food I ever had.... When asked for the drink, do order for Jallab - I bet you will be tempted to have another round... Their Falafal is out of this world too...

This is what Mediterranean food should taste like. Great food, great service, great owner.

Exceptional Middle Eastern Food
Expect every dish to be delicious, try as many as you can by sharing appetizers (or order the Mezze combo). A wonderful dining experience in a relaxed atmosphere with very attentive service.

Good lebanese food and a great place to go to if you are attending a play at the Fountain Theatre. They have very limited wine by the glass only Chardonney if you want a white wine. Prices are reasonable.
