    I love Leb Tav's food, and I like the ambiance. However, it was clear that the server was ready for our party to leave the restaurant, which was a bummer.

    We’ve been to the one in Tysons many times and always had a good experience. But this one was very different. We went to this location because we did not want to deal with Tysons traffic. My chicken dish was over cooked and I second the previous review that they were out of a lot of items. We had a reservation for 7:45 and by 8:45 they were vacuuming, while we were still eating!! And it wasn’t like we were taking a long time, most of us were done eating and my son was just finishing up his meal. Needless to say, a disappointing experience.

    The pita is soft and warm from the oven. The main courses are good, but if you like sharing tapas or small plates, you'll find a lot to enjoy from the mezza menu. It's a terrific assortment. The mezza also make great appetizers to a main course, or 2-3 can make a meal.

    It’s been more than 25 years since we last dined here and the restaurant hasn’t lost a step. Any neighborhood in America would be lucky to have a restaurant like this one. The mezza sampler was great for four to share and each of our individual main courses were outstanding, with the lamb fatteh being exceptionally good. We look forward to another visit when next we’re in the area.

    We have been going here for more than 30 years. This was the celebration of the ordination to the Priesthood of a good friend of ours. We had a leisurely dinner over several hours on a Monday evening. It was rainy and cool which meant all the patrons were inside. It nevertheless was not crowded, which did keep the noise level down. As has always been the case, the food and service were both excellent, and the value was as always terrific.

    I’ve eaten in other Lebanese Taverna locations and had no idea this location was the original. It’s nestled in the lovely Westover area, which has a friendly village feel. While the restaurant itself has some age and the patio only big enough for two-tops, the food is every bit as good!

    As a Lebanese myself, this place had such authentic Lebanese food. The only thing that was kind of a bummer though was that I was really looking forward to having the kibbeh nayyeh, however I wasn’t aware that we had to call a day in advance to get it prepared. Nonetheless, It was such great food and such great service! 10/10
