Food was mediocre and lacking in spice. Bread was extremely bland and lukewarm at best.

Fabulous meal - mix of chicken and lamb dishes, with several starters, all shared. Humberto provided outstanding service, and was very patient as friends who had not seen each other for some time caught up. The only negative aspect was the nose level-at a table for 6, you could not hear the person two seats away from you without shouting.

My husband and I very much enjoyed Lebanese Taverna, in DC. We had previously been to their Bethesda location which was also excellent. Our meal was great and it is truly beautiful restaurant. The only negative comment I can possibly think of is how loud the restaurant is.

Our waiter was really funny and nice. Delicious food and cool ambience, all for a reasonable price. Authentic feel mixed with fun DC vibes.

Lebanese food isn't really my thing as I'm a bit of a picky eater, but my girlfriend loves it, and I still found enough things on the menu to enjoy the wide variety of options. The chicken samosas (paired with a nice Harissa) and Lamb Sharhat were great. The three herb sauce with the Sharhat I didn't really like, but I was still able to appreciate what it added to the dish and other people would probably find to be very good.

Normally very good but service was very slow and food was cold! We all had to send our dishes back to get rewarmed.

We ate here because it was close to our hotel, on a cold night when we didn't want to walk far. But it turned out that the location was just one of the good things about this place. Food was superb and wait staff was perfect. We will return.

I love the food, but every time I go the service is mediocre to bad.

This place was amazing. The decor was beautiful and our waiter was awesome. It was my husband and my first time eating Lebanese so we both bought one of the tasting platters. Our waiter was even nice enough to describe each item on the plate to us before we ate them. Everything was so good. If we are in the area again we will definitely go back.

Across all dishes we received, food was fine but not great. Service and environment were delightful.
