I love the restaurant.Shose this for my Birthday. Unfortunately the service this time was sub par. WE received very little attention. Took a long time to take our order. No one came and asked how food was after served. Waited a long time to get our check.

Nice evening. Food was good but over-priced for what it was. The ambiance had the feeling of fine dining but the food did not match. It was mostly traditional Lebanese food. Not really worth the high price.

All four had excellent meals. Service was great and the restaurant while small, was comfortable even with tables relatively close together. A bit pricey but, they give you what you pay for so, no complaint.
I would definitely recommend it and go back.

Lunch is lesser quality and value than dinner. I didn’t care for the lentil soup, which was oily and under salted. The tabouli is always wonderful. The portions are small at lunch - the fattoush salad was tiny.

Delicious appetizers of roasted garlic, morel mushrooms, hummus with plenty of fresh pita. Ribs were as tasty as ever. Dover sole was a little over cooked. Service was excellent and attentive. A candle in the rice pudding was the birthday surprise at the end of the meal.

Two things really bothered us about this place:

1. Seating/Noise: We were sat in a small table for two that is immediately adjacent to the front entrance. Every time anybody stopped to greet each other in the front of the restaurant, they were standing right next to us and making it impossible for us to have a conversation. At one point, a drunk man actually stepped backwards into me. The staff was very apologetic, but it's sort of like, "Just don't put a table here". I don't care if it's a small restaurant or not, you don't put a table in the middle of a trafficked area.

2. Food: The appetizer (eggplant makdouse) was pretty good, but the rest of the food was extremely bland. We ordered the stuffed squash and the stuffed chard, and both dishes had zero seasoning.

Came here like others based on the Top 100 OpenTable rating, and the one thing I learned from this night is not to trust OpenTable reviews.

Not as good as we had remembered. The waiter was excellent. Two of us had meat dishes were disappointing. Maybe our expectations were too high. Two of us have vegatiarian dishes and were quite pleased.
Overall I’d say medium and it will be a while before we go back

The food was amazing per usual. Unfortunately they sat us directly in front of the door to kitchen while a better table sat vacant most of our meal. Every time servers walked out, the bright kitchen lights were in my eyes. Also not the prettiest view. Not what I had in mind for anniversary dinner.
