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.
What Insiders Are Saying
Mamnoon in Capitol Hill makes the best Mediterranean food in Seattle, and also works for just about any dining situation.
This was my first time back in about 4 or 5 years, and everything was just as good as I had remembered. The food was outstanding, service was great (it got a little slow while we were getting ready to leave, but they were heading into their dinner rush, so it’s understandable) and the atmosphere was lovely. I won’t let another 4 or 5 years pass before returning again and will continue to recommend this spot to friends.
Great restaurant. Hummus to die for. Everything was flavorful and well presented. Good service. The only minus, we chose the wrong bottle of wine. Give them a try. We left impressed.
The food is great and so is the service. It’s a wee bit pricey.....but what nice restaurant in Seattle is not?
Great service and delicious, unique meals!
I am really impressed that they remembered a candle for my boyfriend’s surprise birthday dessert, even when I reserved a table months in advance! The chef was also super accommodating towards my vegan diet. And our waitress was very sweet and passionate about the food. Definitely recommend.
Flavors to knock your socks off. Cocktails were spectacular. Knowledgeable service.
Wonderful dinner with relatives visiting from the Bay Area. Meal and service were excellent.
Love this place! I always bring visiting friends here, everyone is happy with the food, space and service!
We had a great dinner. Our Server, Amanda A was awesome. She suggested the chefs tasting menu, and it was a great way to try all the wonderful creation
Outstanding brunch place; delicious food and great value
Great place and good as always
Great food, very nice place, music too loud
One of the best restaurants we've been to in Seattle.
The food is outstanding. We have been coming here for years. One of our top Seattle favorites.
One of my favorite restaurants in Seattle. The food is amazing!
What a lovely experience - the food was scrumptious (if a little salty), the drinks were clever and delicious, and Willow, our server, made the evening even more fun.
The hostess who greeted us was very arrogant and snug. After being seated, we ordered and the waitress was friendly and attentive. However, the food was super greasy, everything was deep fried and highly overpriced. I might as well could have gone to a cheap fast food place!! We paid $160 for a shared starter, two main meals (one of it was vegetarian) and the cheapest bottle of wine we could find, which was $48!!!)
I felt bloated and uncomfortable all evening afterwards. Will definitely not come back.
We had a fairly early reservation so the restaurant was not at all full, yet we were sat right next to another couple, which felt very awkward considering how empty the restaurant was. Not sure why they did that, but it wasn't very pleasant.
I love this restaurant and have been her a few times. However time our service was not as good. Our waiter was very awkward with the table and hardly came by the table. This is a great restaurant with excellent food and normally great service, with the exception of this one waiter.
Amazing food variety and very authentic! Service was a little slow but worth the wait :)
Food is easiest done family style. Very delicious but pricey. Love the cocktails.
Really knowledgeable server. Music was turned up too loud for a minute, but at our request immediately turned down! Great food and very impressive for out of town guests!!
Delicious food. Service was great.
The food was absolutely delicious. Best meal I’ve had in a long time. Can’t wait to go back.
My third time to Mamnoon and always a delight. I went with a date this past Saturday afternoon for the happy hour and the food was wonderful and our waiter only heightened the experience by being personable, making some great suggestions, and checking on us just enough and not too much. The whole bill was under $70 to which I added a $20 tip - that's how good the service was, especially amidst what seems like a trend away from good, full-service.
I always love the fried cauliflower, this time was no exception.
All the food was solid, hummus was the only real stand out. My problem with the meal was how rushed everything felt. Ordered cocktails and ordered small plates and entrees half way through our cocktails. Small plates arrived while still drinking out cocktails and the spacing between small plates and entrees was not nearly long enough. Decent meal but hate being rushed
Our drinks took a while to arrive but they were delicious when they finally did. Our server offered apologies for food coming out a few minutes before cocktails but that was it. Would've been nice to have some type of accommodation for waiting but it's not a deathblow to the meal at all. Which was quite delicious, although sat heavier in my stomach that I would have thought.
Absolutely the BEST filafil and baba I’ve ever had PLUS terrific service
Delicious and delightful. Order anything, order everything. Impossible to go wrong.
We love it!
Second time visiting. The food is always good, this time it took a little longer to get our food. Our waiter asked us if he could offer us some desserts but by that time we were ready to go. Overall a good restaurant and would recommend!
Willow was our server and what a great job!!!
The food was good a little pricey though, I think the price is expensive. I noticed the chef kept licking his fingers when he was preparing the food, not a good sight.
The many layers of flavor .Ade every bite an experience.
We had kafta, the meat quality was terrible.
Mamnoon was fantastic. Our server was perfect- offering good advice on dishes and quantities. The sommelier helped us choose a great, interesting, food perfect wine. We loved every dish. It is such interesting food and tastes healthy and satisfying and fun.
Our first time eating there, and it was fantastic! Everything was delicious and beautifully presented. Will definitely be back!
After many unsuccessful attempts to secure a reservation on a weekend, I was finally able to get a reservation mid-week. And, boy, I can't believe I waited so long to make it happen. This is currently the best dining experience in Seattle. The decor is somehow both eclectic and elegant at the same time. It's comfortable and good for groups, yet not too loud. But most important, let's talk about the food. It is AMAZING. I suspect there are some people who might be inclined to skip this restaurant because they don't like middle eastern cuisine -- but that's only because they haven't tried this place. The food is simply perfect. If you haven't gone yet -- GO!! Make a reservation RIGHT NOW! You will not regret it.
The appetizers were amazing-best hummus, ever. Good service! The food is way too spiced-up (was burping for hours). Place can get noisy (lively)
