As always, the food was fantastic. Flavorful, beautiful to look at, fresh, and delicious. The service; however, was definitely lacking. We did outdoor seating and even after being seated, we were ignored for about 10 minutes before I had to go find someone (which is hard to do when trying to maintain distancing!). The server finally came around, but was a bit forgetful in some of the ordering. She was really nice, but not the best service we've had.
Of course we'll be back because the food is fantastic and we want to support our restaurants. But they need to be a little more prepared to handle their new flow of outside experiences!

The staff was wonderful and kept tables super clean, during these times this is very important. I could smell a hint of bleach when I sat down which always makes me feel reassured. The food was amazing. I ordered the bronzino. The dessert was just right. I look forward to visiting again.

The chef and waitstaff really made this place. Table service was excellent: they ensured our needs as patrons were always met. There was never a time where I had an empty glass or ran out of their amazing bread. The Chef really knows how to use spices to get the best flavor from the food: my friend's curry was spiced enough to really enjoy the chicken, my lamb was exquisite. If you really want to enjoy a culinary adventure, you have to come here.

Our server, Alex, was super. Attentive. Has just enough humor to make everything more enjoyable. we heard his singing talent when another group had a birthday meal and he belted out the birthday song.
Food is always excellent and they’re generous w portions. We always return for the authentic Lebanese cuisine.

Due to Covid, all diners had to eat outside which was a bit trying w wind and sun. The wind blew chairs and an umbrella making it somewhat hazardous to enjoy our meal. Making sure not to get impaled while eating is difficult. Excellent food as usual. Third time here and will make it a regular. We had the fish which was broiled and the chicken kabob meal plus sangria and Lebanese beer. Very enjoyable.

We sat outside overlooking the harbor. Our server was perfect! She was knowledgeable about the food and with the help of the bar tender selected an excellent wine. We had the two specials; lambchops and then the whole sea bass. We shared them, delicious !!! I would highly recommend this place; excellent food, knowledgeable/ professional staff, and good atmosphere.

Service was abominable. Waited 20 min for water. Food was subpar. Ordered lamb medium and it came well done and dry. The noise was so loud I couldn't hear anyone at my table. They also had a pulsing background noise which exacerbated the situation. It used to be a good place to go. It's off my list.

Lebanese Taverna never disappoints. Ever. I have never had anything but amazing food and service here. And so lovely that there are many Gluten-Free and vegetarian options, so everyone in our party was able to have their diet accommodated. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys flavorful, well-prepared food and great friendly (not snooty) service in a comfortable and beautiful setting.

We came here for my moms birthday and really enjoyed the food! The service was super nice! (The only complain/suggestion I have is that there was a lot on cilantro in everything, long strands of it. You can just pick it off it’s not really problem but it got really annoying while eating. If they were cut in smaller piece or just a smaller amount so it’s not wasted!!! )

The food is always very good here, however there service has increasingly gotten worse each time (I have been here three times).This time was the worst. Our server never checked on us and forgot one of our appetizers, but since she was ever around we could not ask her about it. She also took away our hummus before we were finished with it.

We went there on New Year’s Eve. The experience was AMAZING. The service was impeccable! Everyone was so nice. I have allergies so I gage a restaurant many times by how they deal with that. They did not miss a beat! They put the things in front of me that I could eat and the things to the side that I couldn’t. They were very careful. The food was absolutely delicious! For entertainment, they had a lovely belly dancer that was quite talented and energetic! Close to midnight (before our bill was paid) they recommended we go outside so we could get a better view of the fireworks. We did, then came back in and settled up our bill. It was an amazing night thanks to the staff and food at Lebanese Taverna!
