This restaurant was amazing. The food is very fresh and delicious. The Pita Bread is amazing, hot and puffy when you receive it. That's how you know its fresh. The servers were very friendly and we were seated right away. We even asked to be sat outside and without hesitation they granted our wish. I would highly recommend this restaurant that likes Mediterranean food.

We enjoyed the excellent service, ambiance, and tasty cuisine! We had a large party and the manager arranged everything perfectly. We had a few kids present, and the staff were attentive and responsive. We celebrated a full military honors funeral at Arlington as well as several birthdays at the same time, and the culinary experience with culture was refreshing!

Lebanese Taverna is convenient to where I live, so I go there from time to time. I’ve always found the food to be above average in quality, and I especially like the bread that’s served with the meals. The atmosphere is pleasant, without excessive noise.

Don't bother making a reservation for Pentagon Row via OpenTable because even though we had one, they sat people, first-come, first-serve. While we made a reservation for 7, we waited at the front door for approximately 10-15 minutes for the host to seat us. Isn't the point of having a reservation, not having to wait to be seated? In addition, he was very "put off" by my mentioning a reservation and was not pleasant or friendly. Our server was great, and while the food took a little while, and he seemed overwhelmed, he made sure to stop by to tell us food was on way, was very engaging and super-friendly... Food was good, had the salmon dish, substituted pilaf for double veggies which I felt they still skimped on. Overall good experience, but not fantastic. I prefer the Tyson's Galleria location for service.

Great food combined with excellent service made this an ideal location for a gathering of 9 who had not seen each other for a year! We shared wonderful food and the service was timely and thorough! We had what we needed but were not interrupted - it was seamless and will definitely be our reunion go to place!

This is my first poor experience at Lebanese taverna. My Salmon Harra came out raw. I was put off so I ordered a falafel sandwich instead. It came out quickly, but was cold. I was hungry so I ate it. I was expecting to have the meal comped, but I was still charged for the sandwich.

Another fantastic meal at Lebanese Taverna. I've visited my friends in Arlington, VA from greater Boston, three times since they've been in VA and we've dined at Lebanese Taverna each time--all fantastic experiences. There's no doubt we will continue to dine at LT whenever we're visiting our friends. The Hommus Trio is amazing, especially the the spicy hommus! The homemade bread and olive oil mix is beautiful.I've had the Taverna Salad twice and it was outstanding both times--perfectly dressed with their homemade dressing, with a nice touch of mint. Service is top-notch with a professional and efficient wait staff. The atmosphere is warn and inviting. I heartily recommend Lebanese Taverna.

I've had lunch here a few times with coworkers since I work nearby. There is one gentleman who works there as a host and server who is not very friendly or polite at all, especially toward the female gender, I've noticed. However, the food is really good and the ambience wonderful, so we continue to go and booked a large group for a going away lunch for one of our colleagues yesterday as well. We had a very friendly, nice server, so that was an extra pleasant surprise!

I did not like that there are no longer refills on soft drinks. I am disappointed. For a few cents, this is a nice gesture to customers, especially at lunch time, when you are competing with the option of eating in the office and having your own stash of cokes.

This is one of the restaurants in a small chain (they also have cafes & the difference is important). The food was excellent and very authentic. Prices reasonable & the decor was nice. All in all a very good experience in an area know for mall food.
