Magic Lamp Grill Ratings and Reviews
Great authentic food from Lebanon - not the phony stuff. Great tasting just like Grandma used to make from the old country. We had the Magical Mezza - took some of it home for lunch the next day. The only item we don't care for are the potatoes - too spicy! Next time we will ask to replace it with another helping of Tabouleh.
We love Magic Lamp Grill and will keep coming back!
This restaurant lost their liquor license. We sat down and asked for a glass of wine and were disappointed to learn that they don't have wine and beer anymore. The table next to us had a bottle of wine on the table but we were told they brought it themselves.
Food was very good as usual, but I think there was only one server working the entire restaurant on a Saturday night, so very slow service. Also, they lost their License to serve Beer and Wine, and you cannot BYOB/W. we wonder if they will stay in business...
Great place. Authentic Arabic/Lebanese cuisine with a very good menu selection. Serving sizes might seem to be small, but it all adds up. For a 2-person selection (they have 2 options to choose from), you'll end up eating the leftovers for a day or two after. Not overly pricey, a very fitting decor, the service is prompt and largely non-invasive, the noise level is moderate to low. They do not have private booths though. All in all, it is as authentic as they come, the staff is friendly and the food is awesome. Highly recommended.
The day we went in, they were not serving the liquor. That was a bummer and I wish they should have forefathers patrons before seating them. Don't most people expect a good drink on a Saturday night?
I feel every ethnic food place should welcome patrons with brief introduction of their speciality and make recommendations.
Hosts are very polite and courteous.
I hadn't been to Magic Lamp in quite a few months .. the food tasted different kind of plain. It took a while before we had a server come and offer us drinks and then after they hardly ever came to our table. I'm sad that my experience was nothing like I've had before.
Our server was Junior and he was attentive and thoughtful and accommodated my gluten free friend. The food is always delicious and Magic Lamp is the best Lebanese restaurant on the block. Appetizers see a must...my favs are the arnabeet (fried cauliflower) and spicy potatoes. My go-to main dish is the Magic Lamp combo!
In Long Beach for a vacation from the East Coast and always look for a Mediterranean restaurant whenever we travel. So glad we found The Magic Grill. Excellent menu and service. My husband had the chicken kabob and appreciated the flavor and the moistness. (He often complains that chicken is dry -- not here!) I had the grilled trout -- very tasty. Excellent soup and vegetables too.
