Lebanese Taverna always delivers. I wouldn't hesitate to go here for date night, a business meeting or family dinner. Service, food and atmosphere are all excellent.

One of my favorite restaurants in Baltimore! The food is consistently fresh and delicious. Best hommus and pita anywhere! I highly recommend Labanese Taverna!

Slow service, food moderate. Price was not bad but not for the service. There is a great opportunity to do better and have an excellent restaurant in an outstanding venue!

The ambiance here us very nice. Conveniently located near the pier, inner harbor, 4 Seasons, theater, and plenty of parking garages. The food is very good. Hummus platter, chicken shwarma, and lamb burger were all hits. Falafel is also very good. Great service. Highly recommended. Three adults with non-alcoholic drinks and shares appetizers came in around $80 plus tip.

The food is different so we thought we would give it a try. The place is too crowded and our table was too small. The Chef's Platter had different tastes but it is just not our thing. My entree of Mediterranean Sea Bass was outstanding. The service was adequate but not outstanding as i was never asked for a refill on my drink. The Sangria was very good.

The food was good as before. Our waiter kind of disappeared though the place was mostly empty. We asked for our water to be refilled but it took three asks and fifteen minutes.

Sunday family lunch/dinner - we follow an Italian tradition of Sunday family late-long lunch when we take the time to eat and talk. The food is really good, this time we opt for a combination of meze to share. The portions are decent, we had five meze for three of us. The Baltimore location is great. We do enjoy the food and will return. It’s not on the cheap side in my opinion. However, it’s appear to be in par with restaurants prices these days.

I have been several times. The food remains very good, with generous portions. This past time the service was pretty slow. The appetizers came quickly, but then there were pretty long waits for the main course, to have that cleared and again to get the check. A pretty regular meal out took more than 2.5 hours.

Was there for Valentines Day and ordered from the Valentine's Day fixed price menu. The bread and the first two courses, appetizer plates, were wonderful. Everything was fresh and flavorful. Just as we've known the food at Lebanese Taverna to be in the past. The main courses, however, were bland. The bronzini and shrimp were breaded and fried and dry. The lamb was not flavorful. Not what we expected and hoped for! And not worth the price of the meal.

We plan to go back and order the small plates and avoid the main dishes.

Lebanese Taverna is normally a good experience. This visit was an exception. The restaurant was crowded, but the wait staff was inefficient and ineffective. We sat at a table by a window, along with 3 other tables. All 4 of us had different wait staff. Our waitress had most of her other tables at the other end of the restaurant. We rarely saw her, and it always took a long time for things like getting a check. Sadly, our food was bad as well. My wife's salad came on a HOT dish. My lamb kabob was too well done and very dry.

The restaurant is lovely, the service wonderful - spaced out very well, didn't feel like I was rushed, had time to talk to but didn't feel like the food should have already arrived. it was a bit noisy at peak time but still able to converse. The food was very good - wonderful flavors though the chicken and lamb were just slightly overcooked. I have been there many times and will continue to go. Whenever we bring people for the first time they love it and are so happy to know about it.

We had a wonderful dinner here prior to watching a concert at the hippodrome. Our waiter knew that we had to leave at a certain time and he was attentative and made sure that our meals came out in a timely manner. We have not eaten here in a couple of months, so it was good to reacquaint ourselves with the menu. We had the m'saka for appetizers and ouzi with grape leaves as our main entrée. Both were delicious and filling! For dessert we had the awamat, which is a personal favorite. It was warm, simple and decadent! Would definitely return to have dinner again!

It’s was very loud! So loud I damn near had to read the waitress lips to try to understand anything she was saying. The food was very fresh, which is never a bad thing. Just a heads up “sauté” apparently means deep fried, just so you know. The food itself was good not great. This place was definitely worth trying, not certain I’d try it twice.
