Sometimes dad doesn't know he wants something new until its his new favorite. Bring him to Mamnoon and show off something different that he'll actually like. From bottomless mimosas to savory lamb sausages to spicy shawarma chicken, there's something that's bound to make him smile!

Mamnoon in Capitol Hill makes the best Mediterranean food in Seattle, and also works for just about any dining situation.
Great value and delicious food. Fun for groups!
Noticeable trend downward . Service mediocre , food ok... i wonder how long will they manage to stay relevant at all ?
We had a great meal and Sudath provided an exceptional service. He was spot on with all of his appetizers and entree suggestions for a large party! Thank you Sudath and we love Mamnoon! The bar tender did spill the drink outside of the glass and as a result it spilled on my shirt causing it to stain - Sudath brought some club soda as soon as he found out. Now, that’s going above and beyond!
I was blown away by how incredibly delicious everything was! The decor added to the great vibe and the service left nothing to be desired. My only complaint is that as the restaurant fills up, it gets exceptionally loud.
Really noisy - the “cool” industrial ambiance means all hard surfaces and kitchen noise in a big space - which means it’s way too noisy to talk without yelling - bummer.
The food was very good and cooked to perfection.
Came for late brunch on a Saturday (1pm). Dining area was larger than expected when you come in from the street & was pretty empty. Vibe is a mix of eclectic North African with very dim lighting.
Had great expectations having read the reviews & the restaurant appearing on the great places to have brunch list… Brunch menu limited (not the one on Open table). Food was ok but could do with some more seasoning/spice – we had chicken shawarma; awarma (eggs with minced lamb) & sobhaneh. Hummus serving on the small side & comes with 3 small 3” pittas. Service could be more attentive - two of the dishes arrived together, the shawarma arrives 6 mins later.
Tip - the flatbread is the "must-have" on the menu but you can't get any of it in the dining room; you have to sit at the "community table" or order at the take-out window. It caused quite a bit of confusion at our visit. We opted for the community table so we could order the flatbreads (to die for, well, not literally) but amazingly yummy.
The cocktails are good too. The food is awesome but it is pricey! Worth it though.
Excellent meal and service. Although I thought the menu offerings were somewhat limited, everything from the Hummus to the mains were first rate and the service was prompt and delightl
Although food was good, we'd wish the service was quicker
Came here upon a recommendation from a local. Did not disappoint! Great, albeit small, assortment of traditional dishes. Baba ganoush, fried cauliflower, and muhammara were our favorites. The fish of the day was Halibut and also amazing (although for $40, a little spendy for what you got). Kibbeh bil sanieh was the only real loser of the 10 or so tapas we ordered (it was dry and pretty flavorless). Great service and amazing drink list! Highly recommend for a good, authentic dinner in a fun part of town.
It was alright - general feeling afterwards of mild disappointment from both food and ambiance. Overpriced for the quantity served (but that may be because of its location) and was really over-hyped in online reviews. Was trying several times to dine here and when finally did stop by for a weekend brunch, it was okay - food was good but the place is not somewhere we would ever make an effort to visit again. Kind of wish we had just ordered manaeesh from the window menu outside the store and having brunch in a nearby park than dining in. Parking is a nightmare and the interior of the nearly empty restaurant was excessively dark with a bunch of mismatched décor that feels like it is trying way too hard to be culturally cool/hip. Food was good, some dishes better than others - the fatteh falafel was nice but the falafel were crouton sized, so it should be renamed on the menu as poached eggs in a yogurt sauce. The baba ghanouj needs more of everything (tahini, salt, garlic, etc.) because it just looked and tasted like bland pureed eggplant. We really wanted to love this place but left feeling just "meh."
One of our best meals in Seattle.
Absolutely Amazing ambiance, food, drinks and service! Excited to go back again!
The culinary highlight of our trip to Seattle, excellent food , although a little on the pricey side for the meze entree.
Group of 5 people -- on the reservation we asked for a quiet spot on a Friday night which is hard to find at Mamnoon but they have an "alcove" room and they seated us in there which was perfect. The food was delicious . The halibut was outstanding as was the cauliflower -- anyone who thinks they do not like cauliflower should try it here -- it is amazing. Service was very good. I'd recommend the Lebanese Pale Ale 961 beer with the spices (like Thyme) which was very good. Can't wait to go back!
Amazing tastes and staff could not have been more accommodating and service was great. Hope to visit often and try everything on the menu.
We were stuck in traffic, so we were late for our reservation, but they were still able to seat us at the bar. Fast service, great cocktails, and delicious food! Not always easy to find parking nearby, but we'd happily take light rail there next time!
I can’t believe we had never been here before. We will be back and often.
Best halibut ever! Consistent wonderful food
Great meal . But waiter offered my wife a dish without saying it cost $85! Didn’t like that . Otherwise , great experience .
Great restaurant, food, and service! We were very happy with our meals and food.
Delicious food, but limited menu if you don’t like eggplant. Hope their menu varies so we can sample other
Food from the region.
I had read raves about Mamnoon in 2017 so was eager to try. The occasion was a get together with the son of a longtime friend, accompanied by my daughter. We were shown to a nice quiet(er) table in an anteroom off the main dining room. Food was very good and we were offered helpful guidance with menu choices. Unfortunately, our drinks order was neglected. And when queried after our first appy appeared, our server initially indicated the Lebanese beer ordered might not actually be in stock, hence non-appearance. Thankfully, this was not the case, and our drinks appeared very soon after. Still, given the length of wait, and this being our first visit, I feel they lost an opportunity to win us over by offering some small compensation for our thirst. My only caveat in what was otherwise a pleasant, convivial meal.
Great service. Fantastic meal!
Excellent, creatively prepared food, terrific service. We'll be back.
Our dinner was outstanding. Interesting ingredients prepared with care and attention. The Chef's are right on in terms of flavor and presentation. Exceeded all expectations.
Unfortunately, the hostess was rude, dismissive, and clueless. She seated a party of three directly next to us, when there was an otherwise completely open lounge. The server's then proceeded to forget about the family and the father had to stand up and track down someone to place an order. The family was Chinese, and as a observer, it was hard to tell if they were being dismissed because of their cultural background or because of cluelessness. I hope Mamnoon will carefully consider this incidence and strive to do better.
LOVED this place. I'm from San Francisco so have high expectations for food quality and service. I spent two nights in Seattle for work and after having dinner at Mamnoon the first night I cancelled my reservation for another restaurant for the second night and ate at Mamnoon again! The taste of the food was outstanding, very fresh and high quality. I ordered the hummus, babaganouj, fattoush salad, red lentil soup, the the eggplant/yogurt/chickpea dinner. I had the eggplant dinner two nights in a row it was so good but forced myself to try other appetizers the second night. This place will not disappoint and is a must go-to place! The hostess was very warm and inviting as were the bartenders.
2nd visit as we enjoyed the first 18mths ago. Delicious food, LOVED the cauliflower. In fact everything was good. They even provided me with a pair of reading glasses as I had left mine at home. Now that is service!
I took my brother there for his birthday and he loved it!
Really enjoyed our time here. Inventive, delicious food. Fun, eclectic interior. Friendly service. Background hum of conversation. Overall a great experience.
We have eaten several times at Mamnoon and it is always great. It was my partner's 50th birthday and when I asked where he wanted to go it was Mamnoon he selected. The service was great and the ambiance was terrific.
I like to bring out of town guests to Mamnoon for dinner. It’s always a nice evening, professional and caring staff and excellent food. Thank you for another great evening and meal.
All of the staff were friendly and attentive. Food is delicious. The happy hour drink specials seemed a bit unusual, but were very good.
One of my favorite restaurants. My first time there for lunch. Excellent food as usual! They were not very busy so it's quieter than dinner time.
This was certainly a gem of a place. I love Middle Eastern cuisine and I was very satisfied with their food and atmosphere. Quite a hot spot in trendy Capital Hill. I'd recommend the trout. The Lebanese red wine was delicious. If you are in Seattle, be sure to visit Mamnoon . Don't miss it!
Service was excellent. Food was over salted. Would probably only come back for the appetizers.
We had a fantastic meal- everything was delicious!
Food was delicious and great for sharing! Highly recommend for group dinners.
