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.

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.

We were a group of four and ordered four different entrees to share. Each dish was delicious and had its own distinctive taste. Noise was minimal so we were able to have a nice conversation. Service was good.

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,

My wife and I had never eaten really really good Middle Eastern food until we found Mamnoon. A couple of friends were coming to visit and they wanted to see the place where Bourdain ate at while in Seattle and Mamnoon didn't disappoint. Although the main dishes didn't look appealing we had almost 1 of every small plate and it was an amazing tour of the Middle East. Will definitely go back and highly recommend for even non adventurous eaters.

I love the food here but it gets a bit noisy. Mamnoon is no noisier than other nice restaurants today. This is either a general issue with modern restaurants or a issue with me.

The wine selection is really interesting. There are many Lebanese wines as well as an interesting selection of local ones.

The food is inventive and high quality. Spices and flavors are great. I'm pesco-veg and there is plenty here for me.

Delicious and interesting food. Of course the cauliflower was a highlight but everything was tasty. My only complaint was the timing of things. Our appetizers were served before the wine arrived. Then a delay for the main course. Really minor issue though. We all loved it.

The food was INCREDIBLE and this is the reason I keep coming back to mamnoon. However we sat at our table for 30 minutes with nothing but water in front of us while we waited for our drinks to show up. We were a party of three and two of our drinks sat on the bar for a good ten minutes while the bartender talked to a woman sitting at the bar, by the time the third drink was made and brought to our table, my $12 dollar cocktail was lukewarm and only filled 1/2 of the already small cocktail glass. I'm really not trying to be a whiner but I am not a rich amazonian, so when I spend $12 on a cocktail I'd like it to be done well because I am not going to be able to order a second. I will definitely be back though Mamnoon because that fatteh bademjan is luxurious. Thank you!

As expected, the food and table service did not disappoint. I would have given 5 stars for all if the front-end staff were friendlier and more competent. We were waiting in line to check in for our reservation, and one of the hostesses helped others before helping us. Two out of our party of four were present when we were seated, which we told the staff. When the rest of our party came, the two hostesses were unable to help our friends. Our friends had to call me on my cell phone in order to find us and get seated.

We were actually a little disappointed this time round. We have been to Mamnoon several times and really enjoyed it. This time the food was a little ordinary and not very flavorful. We lived in the Middle East for 5 years and understand the flavor profiles of the food. Won't visit again.

Fantastic Food
My sister in-law was in town from England and she requested middle eastern dining so we took her here.
She enjoyed their hummus, fish and Kaffta. She was very pleased with our choice and the atmosphere.
