    We very much enjoyed our dining experience at Lebanese Taverna. This is a cozy neighborhood spot that serves outstanding preparations of our favorite Lebanese dishes. The service is very attentive, friendly and courteous. It can get very busy here especially on a Friday night so plan accordingly. But you cannot beat the food here. We love the preparations and care given to each dish. Our favorite is anything that they do with eggplant. I think we have tried them all and we have never been disappointed. If you have never been to Lebanese Taverna you must go. You will not be disappointed. We cannot wait to return.

    While they have multiple locations now, the original in Westover is always a favorite. Plan ahead if you are looking to have dinner on the weekend here and get a reservation. The food is always sublime, the service is great, and is such a neighborhood mainstay/landmark. Can't recommend it enough if you are into middle eastern food.

    Arrived for an early 6 pm dinner and gradually saw how popular this restaurant continues to be with guests arriving steadily. We loved the chicken shawarma sandwiches and the falafel too. The artichoke appetizer was lovely and lightly fried. Also enjoyed a bottle of the “Blanc de Blanc” white wine. Our server was very busy.

    Thank you Khaled for outstanding service and for taking such good care of us! The lamb fettah and the chicken kabob were both outstanding -so flavorful! When there was not a 2nd bottle available of the wine we were drinking, the restaurant kindly gave us a more expensive wine at the same price as our original choice. It was an fabulous, relaxed dinner experience!
