There was one server, who did his best to hustle and keep up with all of the tables as the restaurant grew more busy. There appeared to be a couple who might have been the owners sitting at a table. They weren't eating, and from time to time disappeared into the back. Never once did they raise a finger to help out the server, never once did they check on customers to see if anything was needed. They could have filled water glasses, bused dirty dishes, shown that cared even a little bit about the customers.

I did not get the impression that they cared about the customers one bit.

The server was great, but it was too much work for one person, and these "managers" should have done something to make the dining experience more enjoyable.

Dear Dan, owners are always either in the kitchen preparing food/taking care of to go orders &/or administrative duties in the office. One of the owners is our head chef whom we respect due to her amazing work ethic. She inspires us as a team & is here from open to close. We appreciate feedback, but we don’t know what couple you speak of - friends/relatives do visit often for a homey meal. We’re happy to learn that you enjoyed our warm service & authentic food. Owner’s recipes for 30+ years.

Great, homemade Mediterranean food in informal, comfortable setting. Kibbe, shish kebob, tabbouleh—delicious mezze platters. Warm, conscientious service. My first visit—will def return

This restaurant is amazing! In addition to having my first Lebanese wine, I also tried sugok (Armenian beef sausage) for the first time.

This place is amazing for birthdays, they have lights, music, clapping, crowd participating, it’s fabulous!

The kebbeh were overstuffed but very tasty. The falafel were excellent and the lamb shawarma and the Lebanese sausages quite good. The foul madammas were bad. There was no kebbeneye or taboule and the fattoush was pretty bad. The tehina, hummus and labneh were good.

On my latest visit the lamb in yoghurt dish was perfectly prepared—the meat was tender and very flavorful, nicely browned and seasoned. The pita with pine nuts and I don’t know what inside was delicious. The owner is friendly and helpful.This place is dependably excellent.

Best Baba Ghanouj in L.A. area -- smoky with hints of garlic and lemon. We shared the weekend special, a lamb shank -- Wow! Moist, tender, full of flavor, with a large scoop of seasoned rice and assorted vegetables. We didn't have time to try any desserts, but there will be a next time!

You might miss the gem tucked away in a strip mall if you're cruising through this section of East Hollywood. But the food is wonderful. Large portions, friendly service, very unpretentious vibe. Highly recommend if you like Middle Eastern cuisine.

We met friends after seeing a wonderful play at the Fountain Theater. We were greeted most warmly, and that welcoming attitude continued throughout the evening. The food was delicious; we order the same dishes we've eaten before: Fattoush salad, tabouli, baba ganoush, chicken in a yogurt sauce, and a lamb kebab. Sharing everything, we could talk to our friends because the noise level was acceptable. Next time we visit the Fountain Theater since we come across town, we will be sure to dine at Marouch. Our introduction to this restaurant came at another couple's anniversary celebration when the restaurant was closed to other diners. The food was so good at this party that we have returned again and again. Prices are very reasonable.
