Middle Eastern
Fond memories of food in Syria, Lebanon and Persia are transplanted to the Seattle of today. Enjoy man'aeesh and other traditional street foods from our walk-up window menu, a private event in our luxurious lounge, or a relaxed, elegant meal in our well-appointed dining room.

Food is an essential part of all family and social interactions in the Middle East where people grow up with intense flavors, colorful, vibrant foods fresh from the marketplace, prepared simply and with a lot of passion. Aromatic herbs fill the streets and a spirit of warmth and generosity exudes welcome at any table.

Here at Mamnoon, we share these strengths brought with us from Lebanon and Syria to the new world of Seattle – where modern curiosity, compassion, progressive values and tolerance are paving the way for harmonious integration and celebration of cultures and flavors.

This was our second time here. I love it so much- every single thing on the menu is so good! I especially loved the scallops and chicken this time. I tell everyone I know who’s visiting Seattle to come. I live in San Francisco/ wish there was a Mamnoon there!

The food was great, but the service was below par. Plates and cutlery were taken away before people were finished eating (this happened several times). When the appetizers were brought out, it took a good 5 min (which is actually a long time when you have a table full of hungry guests) before the pita was brought out....we needed the pita to be able to enjoy the appetizers. Also, there seemed to be a breakdown in communication among the staff. For example, we asked one person if we could have more pita. Awhile later our waiter asked us if we would like more pita and he seemed surprised to learn we had already requested (and not received) it. However, the food is amazing...everything from the fried cauliflower to the okra to the hummus to the lamb.

Waiter/waitress did not really check on us often. We waited for quite some time before even being asked “How’s everything”. The wait for more water took about 30min...

The food is VERY expensive for what it is! Been there multiple times and really enjoy when Mo’Mo is serving us. He outgoing and personable and very attentive!

Sat inside for the first time and service was horrible. Very slow, your glass is empty for a while before they refill the bottle of water. You think a party of 5 would get a bit more attention.

Sophisticated middle eastern food of high quality you don’t usually find in similar restaurants. Every dish was delicious, a combination of multiple ingredients and tastes. The decoration in Mamnoon is unique and beautiful, the ambience is lively and fun. No wonder the restaurant is always full.

Love Mamnoon and it's one of my favorite places in the city for a splurge. I often bring out-of-town guests here!

This time around, almost everything was perfect as usual, excellent service, excellent food - the restaurant just had more than one screaming child in it (no one's fault, it happens..) but in the normally noisy place, it was not only distracting but also really impacted our ability to talk. This was a special dinner for us, so it was a bit of a bummer for such a splurge. I know that circumstantial, and does not reflect on the restaurant.

Also, hoping Mamnoon will add a few more dedicated vegan entree options.

We came for my husband’s 30th bday (a very important birthday) and I noted that in my reservation. However nobody acknowledged it was his birthday. Our server was mediocre at absolute best; he barely came to check to see how our meal was or how our drinks were. He didn’t get my right drink for me. He left our dirty salad plate on our table without checking for it. And our main course took at least 30min from after our salad came out.

I am pretty disappointed in this experience, especially after really enjoying my first time there. Unfortunately, it being my husband’s birthday, that was a one time opportunity and will leave a sour taste in my mouth about Mamnoon.

The food is wonderful, the service great. I had to ask if they could turn down the "surround sound" music as none of us could hear ourselves talk. They did honor this request but I'm sure I'm not the only to ask this.

The food was fine, but the service was anything but… We had to inform multiple waitresses about our food and drinks that had been sitting for quite a while. We basically had to beg for service that we overpaid for.

A great place overall, we have been a long time customer... the only thing we have experienced is awkward and sometimes poor service. The server is normally elusive and we tend to wait a long time to order drinks and food. Timing of food and dishes are a bit off and our drink typically doesn’t arrive until a few appetizers in. Food is delicious and restaurant design is great.

The quality of the food combined with the delicious flavors took us all by surprise. This cuisine was absolutely stunning and I highly recommend this excellent restaurant and I would go back in a heartbeat but as we live near Boston, we'll heave to be satisfied with the memories of our wonderful experience at Mamnoon. Thank you for doing everything right.

Maybe it was just an off night, service was definitely lacking. Lots of waitstaff hanging around the kitchen, I guess waiting for dishes to come out. Just took a long time for each ordered item to come out. One small plate was forgotten and came out after we finished the main dish. On the bright side the food was really good, but that’s not what we’ll remember.

Mamnoon is one of our favourite restaurants in Seattle. The food is amazing, and they’re very happy to arrange a vegan option for me. It’s one of the few places we can go where my husband can get meat, and I can get plants, and nobody gives us a hard time.

The fresh pita brings the concept of pita to a whole new level. It’s soft and fragrant and so delicious! Perfect for scooping muhumarra or hummus, or corralling errant chickpeas that roll around on my plate. I also like the mocktails, and my husband likes the cocktails.

We love that it’s super queer-friendly, too. In fact, we got engaged here, AND they catered our small wedding, easily making gluten-free, soy-free, vegan falafels so all our guests could eat.

The restaurant itself is pretty loud, with conversation more than music. It takes some getting used to. And I find it challenging when the host/ess wears perfume or cologne; it’s not usually a problem with waiters, but one of the usual hostesses can often be smelled from 5 feet away. That’s a bit much for a place where I’m trying to taste food. Sitting outside makes both of these problems much smaller, but is weather-dependent.

I can’t wait to bring my in-laws here when they come to town. Honestly, this is a place I enjoy bringing folks to because the service and the food are so excellent. Keep it up, Mamnoon!
