The food was delicious as always. It was our friends’ first time and they loved it as well. Everything was flavorful, cooked properly and nice portion size. Delicious Mediterranean food.

Always a good meal at Lebanese Taverna! The food is delicious, whole wheat pita with zatar, fresh from the oven, is alone worth the trip! Vegan and vegetarian options make this our go to.
When dining with friends who want a good hearty meal , everyone is happy! Lovely wait staff aims to please. Enjoy!

I was told this restaurant was highly rated so I gave it a try. The food was excellent- service not so much. We waited for 30 minutes while the tables on either side of us were tended to by a young lady who barely looked in our direction. I finally asked if there was a server assigned to our table, and she said she would check. A slightly confused young man eventually came and took our order. 20 minutes later we still had not received our drinks. Now when the food came, it was very good so I must say I did enjoy the meal. However I did resent having to add more time to the parking meter...

This was our second time in five years having visited Baltimore and on each occasion it was a priority to go to this restaurant. Food was well prepared, fresh ingredients, a very nice portion, and the overall taste and experience was superb on each occasion . Highly recommend Lebanese Taverna for a romantic date night, meeting with friends, or just to save her wonderfully prepared and very tasty Lebonese fare.

Solid. Yummy. Whats not to like? My favorites are the babaganosh, lentil soup, and the arnabeet/fried cauliflower dish. Chateu Masur is the best red wine hands down.

We went there for a friend's birthday celebration. Service and ambiance are outstanding. Lamb was well done when two of us requested for medium. A little pricey for $29 entree of overcooked lamb, potatoes and small portion of zucchini. Bread and appetizer was excellent.

Slow, slow, slow,slow. It was 30 minutes for appetizer, then 90 minutes till entree. It was not busy. Just very slow. Our reservation for 4 was 7:15, seated at 7:25, meals arrived at 9:20. Really awful, no plans to return.

This is usually one of our favorite places for family meals. They had a down day this time. Service was very slow and portions seem to be getting smaller. Parking was a bear to top it off. The Hopefully will be better next time.

The place is very nice and the service is good. The food was fine, I've had way better Lebanese food in other places but this place was good to satisfy my cravings. Their fresh pitta bread as well as their non alcoholic drinks are delicious. I will definitively go back

Don't be put off by the menu, that implies that it is mainly a carry-out restaurant..
We met friends for lunch and had the Chef's Platter and the Taverna Platter. Lots of samples of great food! Everything was delicious and our vegan friend could switch one offering with meat for another delicious cauliflower dish. The server was cheerful and helpful, and we had a delightful time. We expect to return again. YUM!
