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.

What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation

8.5
Mamnoon in Capitol Hill makes the best Mediterranean food in Seattle, and also works for just about any dining situation.
Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

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!

 (Vancouver)·Dined on April 1, 2018

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.

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.

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.

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!

I love the food here. Service was quite slow. Also the waiter gave us a dessert menu that was out of date. We are not young and hip, and I felt that was why he shorted us on service.

I ordered the chicken and sadly is was tough and dry- over cooked. The saffron rice was dry and untasty. Sadly, the last two times we have dined have not been as great. We used to love coming here for dinner. The bread is still tasty.

We ordered the mix grill plate and was disappointed. The kafta was overcooked very dry and did not have much flavor. The chicken was a little better flavor wise but it was still on the dry side. The trout was ordinary, not much to rave about. The taboleh was good. We also got charged for extra harrissa, which we didn't expect for the price of the meal.

I love Mamnoon and come here whenever I can convince someone to join me. We walked to a show at The Egyptian after dining. My favorite place for craft cocktails (they're not just creative, they actually taste good!). The food is so delicious, the best I can get without returning to Turkey. Fresh ingredients and wonderful flavor combinations.
There is seating at the bar in front, a quick take out window and cozy, atmospheric seating in the dining room - take your pick, but go!
