I travel frequently to the Middle East and absolutely love Lebanese food. The chef platter appetizer was delicious- we ordered 2 to share between 4 people and it was perfect. That’s where the positives end. The hostess was exceptionally rude. We had to wait 45 minutes past our reservation time before being seated and only after I asked 3 times for an update. What’s the point in making a reservation if walk-ins will be seated before you? When I finally asked at 8:15 why she was seating a group of 4 young gentlemen who arrived after us, she asked “oh did you want to be seated?” The waiter was rude and rushed and would only address the men at our table and rolled his eyes when we asked for more pita because our entrees were delayed an hour. They were grossly understaffed for a Saturday night and the staff’s negativity ruined the already lacking ambience. No quality of food can make up for the rude treatment we received.

The waiter had too many tables, didn’t refresh drinks, or bring all food at once. The hostess sat others she seemed to know before us, we finally got seated 30 minutes after our reservations. The food was good. We’ve been for New Years, but this time was not as good. Plus they forgot to sing happy birthday to my daughter even though I reminded them twice!

Amazing food that was unique in spices and overall flavor. The service was exceptional, whereby our waiter took the time to explain many choices on the menu and offered his input on what's recommended and were not rushed whatsoever. It was one of the best dining experiences I've ever had and would recommend this place to anyone!

Beautiful restaurant. The service was friendly and very efficient. The food was the type of Middle Eastern food that I expected. Very good and large portions. I could have easily been satisfied with a number of appetizers. They have a great tasting platter of these. Perfect for sharing and trying lots of things in one go. Overall, loved it. Very reasonably priced. I'll definitely go back.

Food was great! We sat at a 4 top table in the main restaurant and it was pretty much impossible to hear what the server was saying even asking for him to repeat himself multiple times. We typically request a booth but it didn’t look like one was available Otherwise, food was wonderful. We will be back and requesting a booth.

Appetizers and Dessert were amazing. The main was really bad. It was the shrimp and sea bass the salsa thing it comes with tasted old.
Server was too hurried and was just punching a clock, I asked him to box up the bread for us, he forgot. I felt like we were a bother. Also did not like the table we were sat at. There were plenty of open tables and ample servers.

I was disappointed since we don’t go out often and it felt like we wasted our evening.

Probably won’t go back. I don’t recommend them. I have had better Lebanese cuisine.

Although this is one of my favorite types of food, our visit this time around was mediocre. It was my birthday and my friend's birthday and the waiter never even said anything even though I had put my reservation down as being celebratory for our birthdays. The waiter seemed overwhelmed and was minimal on checking on us. I had to remind him for a few things and I would've been happy to get another drink although was never asked. The food overall was a mix of good and not so good. My friends got a calamari appetizer and four people shared it and ended up being inedible with a very acrid aftertaste that left two people coughing. My friends don't like to make a scene so nothing was said, except to the table. The lamb shanks were a bit overdone for the two people who ordered them. One friend got the LT Burger and said it was very bland. I, however, enjoyed my shish kafta (which is why I came and was delicious as always) and my other friends enjoyed their lamb kabobs, the curry and the stews that they ate. The desserts were delicious as well. Those were excellent across the board. This is one of my go to places, but I always get the same things and the quality doesn't change, it's always delicious. The food seems uneven for larger groups. I'll still be coming back, but I don't think I'll be bringing large groups of friends with me.
