We were there on a Sat night and I think it caters more to a business crowd, so it was very quiet, which we liked. Food was delicious and waiter very nice. Good vegetarian options.
Excellent Lebanese cuisine, best in NYC and possibly the country.
One of the worst meals I’ve ever had. The restaurant was empty, we were literally the only people seated. Bar was closed and the service was terrible. The food was old and wilted.
Very authentic Lebanese food. Their nammoura (dessert) is to die for!!
Al Bustan is delicious authentic Lebanese cuisine. Extremely fresh ingredients that feels indulgent and healthy at the same time. My half-Lebanese husband had the best birthday meal here and I highly recommend it to everyone.
great place to eat, nice service and great food.
Cuisine not up to standard of Lebanese restaurants we have dined at in other countries. To get attentive service here it seems you need to be acquainted with the staff.
Authentic Lebanese food! Everything we ordered was cooked/made to perfection! Amazing desert collection and menu selections. The staff members were fast and courteous.
classy service. the food was fantastic and I would recommend for sure.
people not interested in giving a good service at all,
some dishes were forgotten to be served and
the restaurant is always empty with sad athmosphere
Authentic Lebanese food!!
Excellent food and service
Excellent authentic food. Spacious and nice looking dinning room. They were out of a few things we tried to order, which was a bit disappointing. But I love the food.
Best Lebanese food in New York . Am surprised we never tried it earlier. Strongly recommend for authentic Lebanese food
This restaurant is one of our favorite places in NYC, and we always stop there every time we are in the city, best falafel in MY and that's saying something!!! All the starters were excellent, anything you want to order, just go ahead, it will be good, if you like Labanese food, you will want to try this hen of a restaurant, the service also great, thank you guys for a lovely evening and great food!
The owner and people who work at Al Bustan are really friendly and the restaurant mercifully quiet. But the food was a bit disappointing -- and expensive.
A great experience, exceptional menu, great food and superb service with personal attention. Highly recommended. Will get back soon.
Amazing place. Authentic Lebanese cuisine.
Having lived in the Middle East, we often try NY restaurants that remind us of the delicious food of our past. Al Bustan was absolutely delicious - and authentic Lebanese cuisine. Many families of Middle Eastern background came in while we were eating, confirming Al Bustan offers real food of the region.
While their mezzas include familiar dishes, like hummus, it is worth reaching further into Lebanese dishes. The French beans are amazing, soft-cooked in tomatoes and onions, and spiced delicately with cinnamon and cumin - I think. Yum. That was followed by ground lamb in a pomegranate and tomato sauce. Yes - fruity and tart, and unusually satisfying. Our service was great and helpful. We definitely recommend this restaurant.
Of note, we were there on Saturday night and discovered that there is live music starting at 10 p.m.
wonderful, as always!! fabulous food and service, excellent quality ingredients
We happened to be there on a night when they were almost empty, which permitted us and our friends to sit leisurely and comfortably for a very long time, but the food was mediocre at best, they were out of some menu items, and the whole evening had a kind of desultory air. It could well be that they are better when they are busier, but there was nothing about the evening that would encourage us to go back - especially when there are other Lebanese restaurants in that part of town that have better food at lower prices.
