Lebanese Taverna - Tysons Galleria
Book your next event with us
The consistently outstanding food and service keeps us coming back to Lebanese Taverna.
Fantastic way to usher out 2020. I enjoy everything about this treasure. The food, service and ambiance is always top notch.
Please know that we booked this via OpenTable but when we arrived per our reservation at noon, the restaurant was closed. No signage was available. IF they were not open, it should have been noted in the OpenTable app.
Wonderful service and food. Come on people - get out and support these restaurants. Nothing to worry about. I've eaten here 5X over the past 2 months and all is perfect.
Dined here numerous times over the years and the quality of the food has always been consistent, and the service excellent. Unfortunately, this time the food was off. The shrimp on my kabobs was overdone and hard, but what really upset me was the person expediting the food from the kitchen was not wearing a mask. He had it on but pulled down around his neck. All other employees I encountered were wearing their masks and complying with all distancing rules. I’m very disappointed this employee was allowed to get away with not complying with the regulations we all must follow.
I’m a big Taverna fan and always enjoy the entire experience! This visit was exceptional as usual.
Ate outside. Was sort of comfortable, but several of the heat lamps weren’t working.
I had a wrong plate and I had to ate the food from my friend and I didn’t like it but in general the food was great and the drinks very good. Thanks
The food was good but service was terrible. I have never in my life left $0 tip but last night I had to. Service was atrocious.
Went for a socially-distanced business lunch. Food was tasty, spicy and generous servings. High marks for the attentive, but not intrusive, service we received. Would recommend, would definitely return.
What a treat! I am being really selected about restaurants. This is fabulous, fresh food in a very, very clean environment.
We love Lebanese Taverna! Never disappointed and always consistently terrific food, service, people!
We have eaten here many times. The weather is still warm, so we chose the patio. The food and service are always excellent, and the patio was nicely lit for the evening. Our waitress helped us choose a bottle of wine from their extensive and largely Lebanese collection. The freshly made pita and hummus trio are always the best way to start out the night. There are several new appetizers on the menu that we selected, along with some old favorites such as the Shrimp Ankar and Kibbeh. Overall another great dining experience and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Lamb was very tough; service was slow
A great place for a good Lebanese fare. The swarma and rice dish reminded me of my time in the middle east. The humus was a great appetizer!
The food was OK, the tabbouleh was good, the lemonade was very good. The service was very spotty. We sat close to the window to the outdoor dining and close to the bar so it was very loud.
Always happy with the quality and taste of the food. Wonderful appetizers and share plates.
This is one of our local restaurants we go to often (or order take out from more recently). This was our first time to eat in the restaurant since COVID, the food was excellent, my only comment is the wine list is now almost exclusively from Lebanon and we don't know many of their wines, so it's hard to choose a good wine from the list.
Unfortunately we were very rushed to eat and get out... understand it is a week day, but as we say down at 7, were informed to order right away else the kitchen will close soon.. this happens 3-4 times. Very surprised their kitchen closed at 8. Ridiculous
We ate inside and there was plenty of room between tables to be comfortable. The food here is consistently good.
The shrimp kebob and the chicken curry were delicious! And I always enjoy the rice.
Ordered the Chef's Platter and Salmon Harra....both were excellent!
With Covid, the outdoor space is a god debt. The good is still excellent, so I'm definitely come back
Socially distant outdoor seating. Great service. Nice break from eating at home. Great pomegranate martinis.
In late Sept 2020, my entire party—4 diners from 3 households—chose Lebanese Taverna as our first restaurant to go to since Covid-19 started in March 2020. It was definitely the right choice: they had great processes (plenty of hand sanitizer, tables distanced from each other, seating our party of 4 at a table for 6, menus that we accessed from our phones, etc.). I love the fresh pita and baba ghanoush. The mixed kebab platter was fantastic, as always, as was the red sangria. Our party hadn’t seen each other in many months, and we’re grateful to LT for providing this safe space for all of us to see each other.
Your restaurant was fantastic. The service was prompt and polite. The food was first rate. Thanks.
A small area under cover outside. The staff was very attentive and the food amazing, as usual.
My first Client outing in Nova and I will be back! Always great food and service. Looking forward to supporting this crew through the Fall and winter
I reserved the table because I had relatives in town and because they have indoor dining. Not a fan of eating in a high foot traffic areas, listening/hearing traffic or sweating if the sun is shining or temperature high. In this case the dining room was the perfect choice it was shaded, comfortably cool mostly quiet with the exception of several young individuals with cars painted like school children's trapper/keepers and loud exhausts were demanding attention from the parking lot.
Now for the food. Have eaten in one or more of their restaurants for more than 15 years. I used to be a regular for lunch (once or twice a week) at the Taverna in Woodley Park, the food was always very good and the service was also ways excellent. In my experience this has always been the case regardless of which Taverna I've chosen whether it be lunch or dinner. I also often ate at the Taverna in Cherrydale as it was near my home. I'm now some 40 miles away and yet I still gravitate toward the Taverna's when on or around the
silly circle. I've never been disappointed, any one I've taken to a Taverna has ever been disappointed. The only thing that I missed eating at the Taverna in the Galleria was the aroma of the food being prepared. To me, its all part of the experience.
Good social distancing - we felt safe, staff was maked, we got a nice table
Always my favorite place to eat, we drive two hours just to go!
Great outdoor dining, awesome food and friendly and kind service
Enjoy eating here. I like the ambiance and the crowd. Service is on point and I always feel welcome. Menu is varied, but the kibbeh is my favourite!!!
Service and food were great as usual. Lebanese Taverna and especially our server,Waheed, provide a wonderful evening.
We had a reservation for over a week but when we arrived the table was not ready. They had to open a curtain to their back room and sat us - no plates, silverware, or water ready. Another table was being set at the same time for a group and that table was all prepared before the people arrived while we sat at an empty table. After our meal, which was really slow in coming, we sat for more than 20 min waiting for an offer of dessert, after dinner drinks, or the check. We live out of state but visit several times a year and always dine here. If this has been our first experience it would have been our last.
The patio, which has been there for years and years, is a perfect way to experience the restaurant in our pandemic environment. The big surprise was how much everyone liked the hummus with ground meat. Add a Taverna salad, and that 's a great meal. The Chef's Platter with tastes of 9 or 10 different things is always a winner, because there's something for everyone. The only disappointment was that the chicken on the chicken kabob was dry. It didn't feel like quite the same, great dish that I remember getting over the years. There aren't that many good, sit-down restaurants for Mediterranean food in this area, and we keep coming back to Lebanese Taverna. It's a fave.
The cauliflower appetiser was outstanding. Only had two choices for warm entree and the beef/lamb entree was a little tough & dry.
Lebanese Taverna is a family favorite! The outdoor dining is so nice!
The food is always good here. We always get hummus and we especially like the special hummus with the beef and lamb on top.
Lebanese Taverna is one of our favorite restaurants. Our server (Waheed) knows us so well that he says the drinks we each want and names the mezzas that we usually order. We ate outside because of the pandemic. The food is always great. My rating of the noise level was due to six or seven young women near us who appeared to be having a small wedding shower. They talked very loudly and giggled a lot.
