About Mamnoon

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.

The first course was quick. My drink (simple iced tea) took too long to come. We were left waiting for the main course for nearly 30-40 minutes with empty plates. My drink refill, ordered before the main course came, didn’t arrive for nearly 35 additional minutes. Overall, the meal felt poorly paced, and the service was quite poor. This gap in service might have been because we arrived 30 minutes early for our reservation, and they may have been understaffed. This was not representative of my numerous past experiences there, and the food itself was wonderful, as always.

I was very impressed with EVERYTHING at Mamnoon. Very tasty food prepared thoughtfully- great combination of flavors and textures. Terrific waiter who helped us select a variety of different dishes. Comfortable, interesting ambiance. Very fair prices. Looking forward to eating there again soon.

Everything was great except for I would have love to know more about the menu and the options as the meal was a little bit new to me… And we sat at a two top in the middle of the walkway which made things a little bit awkward. The hostesses were not super accommodating or helpful when we asked for other options. The food was spectacular and the drinks were great, I would definitely recommend it.

We brought some friends to your restaurant, one who was a sceptic, believing the food would be too spicy for her delicate palate. She was wrong. The food was beautifully prepared and seasoned, with a rich variety all around. Each time we have visited, we never order on our own, but simply ask the waiter to bring us food that they recommend, and we have never been sorry. On this visit, the biggest hit was the trout. Incredible! Thanks for a wonderful experience. We will be back.

Fun environment. Drinks had interesting combinations of flavor but some lacked balance. Service was excellent; good recommendations on what to order, etc. Small plates are great and a good value. Entress (only 4 options) are overpriced and were overcooked.

Date night. Happening crowd. Place was bigger (and busier) than you expect from the street.
Good, authentic, better price point Middle Eastern food. Service was brisk and attentive, though the main entrees were slow - which was fine as we noshed on the appetizer sampler. Our meal was well prepared, though it very garlic heavy (keep that in mind if a hook-up is in the offering). Cocktails are expensive, so plan to hang during happy hour if that's a priority.

We return to Mamnoon again and again; we are never disappointed. This time, the lentil soup and hummus with spicy ground lamb were the stand-outs. The cocktails were amazing, as always.
The front of house runs a great staff and the kitchen is consistently excellent.
We'll probably be back again within a month.

We had a wonderful meal at Mamnoon and would definately go back. Our server was very helpful and knew the menu very well. the place was full and buzzing.

I'm not sure how things are timed back in the kitchen. We odered a number of small plates which came out quickly. Then there was quite a lag between the starters and the main course. We almost asked for them to cancel the entree because we had waited so long.

We enjoyed the entree and then decided to order something off the sweet/Helou menu. We also waited a signficant time for tea and some baklava. I'm not sure if this is typical or just the night we went.

As far as the food, I think this is the best mediterranean dinning experience in Seattle. Good menu and top quality.

The food was overall good, but the menu prices seemed on the higher side. We ordered a few things to share, and our server up-sold us on adding a side of carrots for our main since it didn't come with any accompaniments. We didn't realise until we got to the bill that we were basically ordering another appetiser, at $12! It also seemed like our appetisers ended up being more on the bill than what the menu said, but we were already late to get to the theatre for the performance we had tickets to that night, and didn't have time to dispute it. One last issue was that because we were late (the food took over 40 mins to come out to us), we had to get most of it packed up to go, and asked our server to divide it between two boxes. When he handed me the bag we rushed out, but I later discovered he handed me a bag with only one portion of the leftovers, meaning we only got half of what was left.

We love the food here - that obviously is what keeps us
coming back. The service has previously been very good. This visit not so much - our server was hard to track down and when he finally came back after nearly 30 minutes after ordering we were told there was a “network” error and our order was never entered.

We finally got our food without any accommodations or even a sorry it look so long. Mamnoon needs to work on its server’s service or lack there of skills bc their food prep & taste is dialed in. The fish and the Kefta are must haves. From the small plates the fried cauliflower and the moushahal!

We know this restaurant well from multiple wonderful meals and so we chose it the other evening for entertaining our house guests from the UK. Although the noise level the other evening was painfully loud (LOUD) and frankly we hate that, the meal, service, and ambiance did not disappoint. The four of us had a variety of shared small plates to start, followed by a couple of shared mains. We washed it down with a Lebanese Cabernet. We will continue to return to Mamnoon and will continue to recommend the restaurant to others.

Mamnoon used to be one of my favorite restaurants in Seattle until last week. It literally took the waiter 10+ minutes to greet us or even bring us water. And he didn’t even apologize. He continued to be absentee throughout the meal, and was frankly a bit pretentious. Also the lamb and chicken were great as always but the fish was a bit dry. Was nice to see that they’ve improved their wine list. I’ll surely return as I’d hate to let one experience ruin it, but it was unfortunate.

Group of 5 of us for lunch and we ordered what seemed like a good selection of small plates, 2 salads and the lamb and chicken in their homemade bread. This was plenty of food (which was fabulous) and the bill was only about $18 per person (everyone had a non-alcohol beverage as well). That seemed totally reasonable for a neighborhood gem restaurant. Will go back.

We were having dinner before a show at the Paramount. We chose vegetarian options and I thought that the food was good. We ordered hummus, the fried cauliflower, and a grilled veggie dish over yogurt with a crisp bread layer on the bottom. We were served pita bread as well, but it was served cold and I prefer bread to be warm. Service was excellent,
