Always amazing food and outstanding service. I love the decor and vibe. There was a very large table next to us making plenty of happy noise, which was fine by me.

Delicious food! We stopped for an early dinner after visiting the zoo. Our server was great with the kids and they got us out of there before the children melted down.

We've eaten here many times. Our daughter had her rehearsal dinner here 5 years ago. But, I imagine because of the Pandemic, the service was extremely inconsistent and slow. The restaurant was pretty noisy. Little attention was paid to our table throughout the evening. It was disappointing. Having said that, the food was excellent.

Lebanese Taverna used to be one of the best eating experiences in DC. Sadly, it is not the same and not entirely due to the COVID. The service was mediocre at best, they did not have the pomegranate juice, and the food was so so. A bit sad this restaurant to be in decline.

The food was great. The service was non-existent. 3 tables inside. Several times there was no staff in the dining room. No offers for a second glass of wine. After food arrived, we never saw our server again. I had to get up from the table to ask for the check. What has happened to your restaurant?

We met with some local and out of town friends at Lebanese Taverna. We ate inside the restaurant and everyone was appropriately socially distanced. The service was great, the food as well. We would definitely return!

Service was subpar. I asked for the soup to come first and it came last. The chicken shawarma sliders were very bland

Tall and curved ceilings lend an elegant touch. Clean and upscale feel. Wait staff all dressed in black. Silverware, cloth napkin, plates all in good condition. Booth seat offered comfort. My favorite item on the Chef's Platter was the stuffed grape leaves.

Service was good and saved the evening, the food was fair, mezze were good, mixed kebob on the dry side for the meat, vegetable cut very thick, rice was good. Overall, I would not come back. Maybe an off night, we were at 7:30 pm the only one in the restaurant. Again our waiter did a great job.

The Lebanese Taverna is always a great place to go for lunch. The mezzes/combos are very savory and diverse, whether they are vegetarian (the fresh hummus is wonderful) or served with meat (lamb or chicken). The food is authentic and the Lebanese red wines from the Beka Valley are as good as French or Californian wines for the same or even a lower price. The space of the restaurant is always wide and the tables are spacious.

The baba ghanoush, cauliflower and seasoned fries were delicious. The hummus was perfectly seasoned and the warm bread with the zatar and olive oil dip was a great starter along with the kibbee. Highly recommend LT is you want delicious and fresh Lebanese cuisine!

This is one of the best Lebanese restaurants I’ve been to outside of Lebanon! The food doesn’t get more authentic than this. Everything we’ve tried was absolutely delicious and we make a point of eating there every time my family and I visit DC. Their fresh baked fresh is addicting and the mezza is mouthwatering!
The décor is clean and modern featuring a Lebanese theme, and the service is excellent. Highly recommend this place for anyone looking for some authentic and delicious Lebanese food.
