This restaurant is like a big warm family! Food is like at home - been cooked with love and served with care.
There is a drink that cannot be found anywhere else - YASMINA ( a must try for those who love spicy drinks!)
Will be back to this place soon again!!
This the first time I ate there. It was the best cleanest Lebanese food I have ever had.
The server was friendly, we didn't have to wait long for our food.
I had the best waitress. Tall beautiful young lady waited on me the entire night with special care to a birthday treat. The sweet-treat was so thoughtful. I'll definitely return in the near future.
Great Lebanese/Mediterranean food at a very reasonable price for the area. Small and cozy, very warm and friendly service. Excellent appetizers.
It’s definitely a very pleasant discovery of a great restaurant on Beverly Blvd!!!
Very friendly staff. Great service. Food quality exceed expectations - for Birthday we had PARTY PLATTER!!!!!!!!!!!
Will come back to try other menu items. Will be ordering deliveries as well.
Love this place!!!
This was my second visit to Open Sesame and it was just as good as the first. The staff were welcoming and accessible without hanging over the table. The food was yummy -- the lamb shank with rice was the nightly special and it was SO good, as was the Kafta. But the highlight was the Chicken Tawook, with my choice of sides. The atmosphere is romantic, with a beautiful sheltered patio. This is a neighborhood spot I will always feel like going to.
I always love the food when I come here. Everything is delicious
Great little quaint spot, nice looking location. Service was great, waiters couldn't have been more attentive! Food was delicious especially the hummus, prices could be a little lower for value but not overly expensive.
I had a great time and the food was amazing. I would definitely refer people to this establishment and I would revisit this restaurant again.
Food is very tasty. Lebanese cuisine. Service was outstanding
The cauliflower appetizer is great with the garlic sauce (ordered separately and also perfect for chicken) and the lamb kebab is always delicious. I love bringing guests here for the first time.
Great food and great service. Just as good as the one in Long Beach. A gem!
This is an easily overlooked spot near the Grove, but it is worth your time! Absolutely delicious. Excellent and attentive service. Will be returning soon.
This is one of mine and my family's favorite restaurants. The service is always friendly and attentive, and the food is delicious every single visit. I also love coming here with friends. The cocktails are great and it's the perfect mix of a hip neighborhood restaurant that isn't too loud. Everyone loves the ambiance, the food, the drinks, the service — everything. See you soon for my birthday dinner!
The best Lebanese in LA!
Hummus, areyas, cauliflower and lamb chops are extraordinary. Save room for K'naafeh.
What an amazing experience we had tonight! We were treated like royalty. The mezza's and the entrees were amazing!
Our server Nancis, spectacular.
Every detail was tended to, we were so impressed. Kenny was managing tonight and he was incredible. He never missed a beat. The restaurant was slammed but you never felt neglected once.
The desert , the coffee, the tea...... great.
Amazing hospitality and service!
Excellent hosting and smooth running of the restaurant Kenny!!!
Thank you !!!
Just plain old delicious food. I love the coziness and friendly friendly (but not in your darn face) service.
Service was slow, it took a long time to get served a cocktail. We were happy to have a large carafe of ice water, but waters and chilled carafes need to have a napkin under them. The carafe and the iced drinks were melting all over the place. A small cocktail napkin lends a nice presentation.
The baked kibbeh appetizers were over cooked.
We were rushed to pay when we finally were enjoying our desert and coffee as the server said she was finished with her shift and wanted to leave.
Unfortunately I didn't know Kenny was there, I would have asked for him. Just a bad night I guess.
This has been our go to place to order in, but we finally went and had an early dinner. The food was awesome, especially the shrimp and fish. my parents loved it too. The manager and the staff was awesome and very pleasant. Try the Lebanese rose - it is fantastic.
