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!

First timers. Have seen the good reviews and always seems to be a good crowd. Food was very good. Very nice little restaurant. We will definitely be going back. They don't serve alcohol so next time will bring a bottle of wine along.

We wanted to sample the Lebonese cuisine so we ordered the Prince Mezza for two with Kabobs. It was very filling and good. We also had the Spicy Kafta and the Dip Combo Platter. We finished off with incredible desserts and Turkish coffee. Wonderful!

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.

We were about 10 minutes behind our reservation time and we called and they said no problem. They also met our request for booth seating and made us feel like VIPs. Our kids loved it thank you staff
