Its been awhile since I had dinner at Marouch and have to admit our group was a bit disappointed. Sadly as in many location in L.A. the homeless are sleeping in the parking lot making for a unpleasant situation as one has to almost step over people to get to the front door. The appetizers and rice remain as good as we remembered, but the quality of the lamb kabobs were really poor. If I had been blindfolded, not sure I would have recognized them as lamb! The roasted tomato was not completely cooked and my friends chicken kabobs had an odd seasoning. If I return, it will be only for hummus, pita and falafel.

Dear Iris, We regret to learn of the less than stellar experience. Unfortunately, the homeless situation has become an epidemic. Sat, 12/7 was a rainy day & most homeless tend to find shelter in shopping centers. We appreciate your constructive criticism in regards to our lamb & chicken kabobs, this will be discussed at our next team meeting. Glad you enjoyed the mezes. We hope that you will return in order to give us a chance to prove to you why we’ve been around for over almost four decades.

Delicious authentic Lebanese food. A little overpriced compared to similar places. No alcohol at the moment because they are renewing their license. Definitely worth checking out though!

Dear Chris, Thank you for stopping by to show us some love. Your praises are much appreciated. Our prices are based on market value. All our dishes are made from scratch on a daily basis. Nothing comes out of a can. A lot of labor of love goes into each individual dish; hence, their delicious authentic flavor. Our alcohol license should be arriving soon. We will definitely keep you posted so that you can also experience our savory cuisine w/a nice glass of wine/beer. Hope to see you again soon.

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.

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.
