    Food was delicious, but I don't recommend this restaurant for a special occasion.. After making my OpenTable reservation for 3 the day before, , I telephoned the restaurant to tell the manager on duty I wanted this to be whether a low-key surprise birthday for my brother, one of my guests. I was assured that was doable, that they would put a birthday candle in whatever dessert he chose, and bring me the bill. None of that occurred. After we'd finished our entrees, I quietly asked our waiter about it. He looked at me blankly. I then got up and flagged down "Jose" from the kitchen to explain. When I returned to the table, I saw my brother's partner had already paid the bill! Our waiter then appeared with dessert, and said they didn't have any candles. A real fiasco.

    Lebanese Taverna isn’t as efficient without all the convention traffic that accompanied the Wardman. We still like the food but service isn’t as prompt.

    Always stop by Lebanese Taverna when in DC. You can't go wrong getting a bunch of small plates, and the Kibbeh is the best in the city. Highly reccomend.

    Service was terrible and really dampened the whole experience. Our waiter would ignore us for long stretches at a time (I won't say "disappeared" because we saw him at other tables - he just didn't acknowledge us, even after we walked over to tap him to get his attention one time). It took more than 30 minutes from when we were seated to when he took our order. Food was also very slow to come out - we had about a 20 minute gap where all our mezze plates were done but they didn't bring out our entrees. We were there for a birthday but decided not to order dessert because it was taking so long. All-in, from seating to leaving, we were at the restaurant for nearly 2.5 hours, even though we only had appetizers and entrees. If the food were super amazing maybe it would be worth putting up with the service, but for just decent Lebanese food it's not. There are better options out there.

    We went to the Lebanese Taverna for lunch . The Chef's platter is excellent and reasonably priced. The service was a bit slow and erratic, though. And the Baklava as dessert was quite disappointing (too dry).

    Lebanese Taverna has introduced a "Monday Mezze Madness" that 4 of us went to on Labor Day at Woodley Park. It was, perhaps unfortunately for LT, not that crowded. But the dishes flowed on and on, many of which we had not had before (such as the fried artichoke). It is a great opportunity to taste the many dishes that LT is famous for, such as the kibbeh, m'saka, and the babaganoush. The camel wings are not that special (but OK) as well as the french fries with garlic (good, but there are SO many other dishes to relish). I would not suggest doing this every Monday--unless you want to take home some leftovers for Tuesday, Wednesday... But it exposes you to dishes you might want to get the next time you visit (and perhaps at a small savings when you just order a smaller number).

    Dining outdoors on a balmy night: perfect, except for street noise (sirens). Waiter recommended the Mezze Platter for four ... and it worked out perfectly (plus a few delicious pieces to take home).

    Mediterranean fare and plenty of bread, keeps this outdoor seating venue energetic outdoor space. Service can be a bit spotty especially after the food arrives, though the overall experience is excellent. Portion sizes are good, so the price point of appetizers is high, the entrees are abundant and better value.
