Enjoyed the opportunity to have a relaxed dinner in this L.T. Full service restaurant. Have ordered delicious take out from other locations - first time here. Particularly enjoyed lamb w/ artichokes and a lovely Lebanese red wine.
A blustery day -- the restaurant kept the back room especially cozy and warm.
Our waiter was attentive and when he brought a box for us to pack up our extra falafel sandwiches, he also brought a complimentary bag of warm pitas to go with it. Not sure if other customers would get the same treatment -- if you do, lucky you!
Looking forward to coming again to my fave DC spot.
New Year’s Eve
Our overall experience at Lebanese Taverna Bethesda was mixed. While we really enjoyed the appetizers, the lamb entree was overcooked, not something you'd expect for a $29 dish. The biggest turnoff, however, was the service. First, their system showed that our party had already been seated by the time we arrived -- fortunately, they still had an open walk-in table that we were able to sit at. Second, when we were seated (at 7pm) we were told that we had to leave by 9pm because of a private event, which we said was fine. But when it came to our waitress, it was clear that she was trying to rush us, and by the time it was 8pm (1 hour before we were told we had to leave!) she came over and told us to start "wrapping it up", but we could "feel free to finish our drinks"....not exactly the type of service or attitude you'd expect when paying $100+. Other small things, for example the fact that we ordered sangria but the waitress didn't pour even the first glasses, and that I had to keep my coat on because it was so cold, added to the negative experience. I imagine it is probably better on normal nights when there aren't private events, but I probably won't be back to find out.
Delicious food in a stunning room.
Hosted a birthday dinner for 10 people for my mother’s 87th and it couldn’t have been a nicer evening.
Excellent as always. Great server, wonderful food, and overall wonderful. I love the vegetarian mezza options.
I recommend that the menu include information about allergens like nuts.
A good standby in Bethesda for a quality meal. Service can be a bit slow, but the food is always tasty. Large restaurant with a lot of space, good for groups.
Lebanese Taverna offers tasty lamb dishes and many different types of hummus. My grandchildren enjoy the pita bread. We all love the friendly service and the great value of our meals.
Enjoyed dining at restaurant but portions were small - generous portion of rice.
Warm pita was good and plentiful.
