Middle Eastern
Lebanese Taverna creates an environment where good food is enjoyed in good company. Each restaurant is a "home away from home," even though the food and ambiance are from across the globe. Whether you are visiting for the first time, the twentieth, or have been coming to a Lebanese Taverna for over 35 years, you will feel welcomed and like a member of the family. The atmosphere is bustling and each of the restaurants has its own design and slightly different flavors. That is because the food is made fresh.

The chicken on both the chicken kebabs i ordered were very chewy, dry and tasted stale.

We had the appetizer sampler platter and a salad. Very good sampling of appetizers. The bread was wonderful. Served hot to the table. Yummy!

The chicken shawarma is the best and pair it with the mint salad for a delicious dinner!

We have eaten here many times and have never had a problem until last night.. we were given a table just in front of the curtain for private parties. Even though I had asked for a table near or in the bar area. There was some music/noise that was so loud and at such a high pitch that it hurt my ears. I asked to have it turned down three times . By the third time, I had a terrible headache and thought I was going to be sick. I started to cry and my daughter told me to go to the car. She and our friend took care of the bill, etc. On my way out near the bar, a server whom I know slightly asked how I was. I started to tell him and was crying. He then told me the noise/music was not that loud. That was true in the bar area one could barely hear it. In the rest of the restaurant it was awful. I did not feel well for the rest of the evening. To say I was disappointed is an understatement. When a repeat customer has a problem, someone in management needs to look into it and not turn their back on the problem. I will probably give it another try after some time but if it happens again, I am out.

Met with friends and ordered Special hummus, lamb kabobs and other dishes with pomegranate lemonades and white sangria. The lentil soup was worth the trip alone!!!Service was impeccable and helpful. Love this restaurant and will return as often as possible.

Food was awful. My chicken shawarma sandwich was just pita and unseasoned chicken. Didn’t even eat half of it. Save your money, don’t go here! Service was also bad, they didn’t check on us 1 time.

The food was okay but not exceptional. The chicken kabob was too dry. Chef’s plate was okay but ordinary. I was with friends who don’t eat lamb. The seafood stew (bouillabaisse) I saw on the website menu was not available. Overall, it was okay.

Service was lackluster and the food was just - meh. Everyone was seated on top of each other. Definitely not worth the price. LT used to be good but not so much anymore IMO.

The hummus trio is the best way to start your dining! It's a delight. The Branzino was overcooked but tasty. Service was sparse and our server did not go above and beyond. Very basic. The food and sangria, however, were very enjoyable,

I have eaten here several times. Have to say that the food was very disappointing and less than ordinary. And that was across the board for all dishes. Very dry shawarma, poorly cooked lamb - not what I had expected.

The service was also ordinary- one of the dishes was placed incorrectly as an order. My appetizer plates remained on the table long after they were done. Even when I shared that food quality was disappointing, all I got was a sorry- nothing to try changing my opinion.

Not going back again.

Enjoyed the dinner choices I made - however, when my friend & asked the waiter for assistance, he was not anxious to explain the menu options. We played it safe & just got a couple of hors d'oeuvres we knew & a salad & fish. If you are looking for a dining experience, this is not the place. However, it is adequate mall food.

Would absolutely recommend! The best Lebanese restaurant I’ve been to in N.A.! Taboubleh is my favorite. Usually, restaurants put a crazy amount of bulgar wheat vs parsley. This version was perfect - lots of parsley and just beautiful. The lebneh, hummus, and fried artichokes were delicious. By the way, the fried artichokes dipped in lebneh was amazing! Mohammed was my waiter and the service was 5 stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Now my favorite restaurant in DC. Will come here any time I’m in town. Thank you.
