Now we have a new home in Los Angeles. Our goal is to share the same great food and service with the Angelenos.
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.
High quality Middle Eastern food in Mid-City. Ample street parking, good service, sort of low frills with moderate prices. A good choice for this part of town.
It's our new favorite place! The food is fresh (delicious), the staff is friendly and you feel at home. The drink menu is amazing and did i say how yummy the food is?
The food always seems to be amazing, but what makes it even better, is Skylar! This young lady works so hard, she knows her clientele, anytime we walk in there the table is set to perfection and she anticipates all of our needs. Skylar is attentive to detail, she's sweet, polite, and from the heart. Thank you Ali for having such an amazing person running your place🙏🏻👍
As always the food was great!!!
Brought a friend from Lebanon to this great neighborhood restaurant and he loved it. I was happy that the food delighted him and it was really good. The lamb and the steak are very good and so was the wine selection.
The food and service is amazing! We were even given a gluten-free menu to peruse. The atmosphere is inviting (vibrant but also relaxed) and we can't wait to go back over and over again!
Came here with my husband on a busy Saturday night for dinner, our waitress took our order relatively quickly. However, it took about 30 minutes for our appetizers to come out and then an additional 35 minutes for our entrees. When we finally got a hold of our waitress after about 40 minutes, she proceeded to tell us that the kitchen was packed with take out orders. Dine in customers should be given priority in my opinion since we are physically seated in the establishment waiting for our food.
Always great ambiance.. food is on point but took a while longer than normal that night.
Highly recommend! It is everything it is supposed to be.
We always have a great time and great food. Thank you Kenny for being so attentive to all our needs.
David the new manager, congrats!!! Thanks for coming over to introduce yourself. Remember lead with compassion and from your heart. You should do well.
Love the food, loved the service!
The music was great today, sounded sometimes like French. Ali we always love the middle eastern music, french, moroccan......... it's a part of the experience.
As always the food is delicious! Our servers are always great, especially Skylar and Kenny. Yay, came to have the kibbeh on Saturday and it was delivered on time!!!! Thank you Ali, shucran👍🙏🏻❤️
Please play the Lebanese music, it's a part of the very special ambiance.
Thank you for everything guys!!!
I Fendick Lebonese taste and seasonings
Thank you Skylar❤️you are always amazing!!!
We have dined at Open Sesame many times.
Our favorite dishes are the grilled cauliflower
and the chicken Tawook. They always serve fresh pita. I like their Belgian beer and Morrocan Tea.
I love Open Sesame. We live in the neighborhood and go all the time. Great Mediterranean food great service.
Love this place. My boss is Lebanese and she gave her stamp of approval
The food is great. Large family portions on the big items and tasty appetizers to start. Coffee was robust and eye-opening and desert (esp rose ice cream) sealed the deal. We will be back!
Good Lebanese food, kibbe, grilled meat platter was great! Hummus and garlic sauce was very tasty and tabbouleh fresh. Nice friendly service and atmosphere.
