Al-Amir Lebanese Restaurant Portland Oregon
Best customer service in town.
This was our second time coming here, the first time we had a family gathering of 14 people - this time it was four of us. Both times the meals, service and overall experience was fantastic. We are of Lebanese descent and can vouch for the authenticity of the food and the friendliness of the staff, who makes you feel like family from the moment you arrive.
Great food. Lamb was perfectly cooked. Service was friendly.
We gathered from around the country and had a fabulous family style meal. Exceptional!!
Great food. Great service. This is the best Lebanese food in Portland. And I am Lebanese and grew up with this food. Their cabbage rolls, grape leaves and kibbe are amazing. The Kefta is perfect as is their rice. It like Sunday dinner at Grandmas.
Great fun, good food, lovely dancer that entertained us. The owner or waiter who attended us was wonderful.
Always an incredibly warm and lovely experience dining at Al Amir. Genuine and caring customer service and delicious food. There’s a reason to return over and over again. One of Portland’s best.
The food at Al-Amir is our favorite Lebanese. The owners are amazing people and the service can’t be beat. We enjoy every visit and wish we could go more often.
My kabob's meat was very dry
Third time having dinner; one of our favorite places.
As always, our gracious host Mo made sure that every detail received proper attention. It is truly a fine dining experience in downtown Portland, without the pretence or outrageous cost.
My partner and I had such a wonderful time at Al Amir. I can't wait to come back on our next trip to Portland!
Al-Amir is always a pleasure to have a meal at! The gentleman who served us brought us samples of several items that make us want to go back in order to have a full meal of some of those foods, like the lentil soup which was really good!! We both had a lamb dish with rice, and we both thought the portions were quite adequate, and I had some left over for lunch later! This is a great place to have Lebanese food!
Al Amir has never disappointed. The food is absolutely amazing, and it was so nice to celebrate my birthday there with friends. Lydia & Moe are gracious hosts.
Every foodie in Portland should take the opportunity to savor the delicious flavors of Lebanese cuisine. Al Amir offers so many wonderful choices. Not only are the dishes delicious but the service is outstanding and professional. Make this restaurant the one you put as number 1 on your TDL!!!
My friend and I eat here regularly and the food is always good - consistent and quite authentic. The kafta and the baba are the best!!!
Great meal and service. We elected to go the family meal and everyone had a taste of the plates. Fun food conversations. The wait staff brought out extras of our favorites. Looking forward to dinning with Al-Amir again.
Everytime we come here, we leave more than satisfied. Food is very good, and reasonably priced; especially being downtown Portland.
The owner seated us himself and waited on our table. We were first customers of the day. He treated us like Family and I keep that close to my heart.
The food has so much flavor and fills me up with no shame. Food is not greasy, or likely to make your tummy hurt.
Service is the best, always. We were checked on multiple times to ensure everything was to our standards and expectations.
Give them a try and you will not regret it. Belly Dancer every Friday night for live entertainment!
Food was terrific; drinks generous from a full bar. Wonderful staff that made great suggestions, made us feel welcome, and had a great sense of humor. Plenty of options for the vegetarian in our group. My second time there (first time on a precious trip) and it will certainly be on my list next time in Portland
Thank you so much for your hospitality, conversation, and delicious dinner! My daughter and I will be back and who knew Lebanese Margaritas and Lemonade. I highly recommend.
GREAT dinner! Five of us were in town leaving the next day on a river cruise and wanted a good Mediterranean restaurant for dinner, and we found it in Al Amir. Excellent food, service and ambiance.
The next time I'm in Portland, I'm definitely going back.
Al-Amir is a perfect place for large group meals. They serve a wonderful selection of food family style; you won't leave hungry. Don't forget to try the lemonade. It's infused with rose water. Delish!
We’ve taken our adult kids out to dinner many times but never have they thanked us over and over! The hospitality was above and beyond. Al-Amir made it a memorable time for all of us. Thank you for a wonderful evening!
The sampler platter is exceptionally good. Turkish coffee and Baklava for desert. YUM! Great meal and amazing service. Manager and server were so friendly, welcoming and
made sure our meal and experience were memorable. I will definitely go back!!!
First time there, for lunch with out of town friends. Food was middle of the road: my lamb, ( though shreded and easy to eat) was fairly without flavor. Not enough veg options for our guests. Service was attentive, but there were only 2 other people dining there....
Amazing food and service from
Lydia! My daughter and I were in for
a pre-show dinner. Lydia was amazing
and made us feel special on our Father
Daughter day! Thank you!
Great meal and excellent vibe
GREAT FOOD. EXPERIENCE WAS FUN AND ENJOYABLE. REMINDED ME OF MY RECENT TRIP TO THE LEBANON AREA.
Our dinner was delicious and the service was incredible. I have dietary restrictions and they were totally accommodating! If you are dairy and gluten free - you can have a great meal and dessert here and not feel deprived. Loved it!!
The food is delicious and authentic.
We had a surprise birthday party there this weekend and it was awesome! Moe, Lydia and staff took great care of us! The food was incredible and the service was outstanding! Thanks, Al Amir!!
We had a very good dinner and came home with lots of leftovers. The owner came by our table several times to check in. I joked to my wife"I wonder when the belly dancing starts?" Ten minutes later guess what! A wonderful young belly dancer moved through the room. Fun evening.
In one word, Delicious!!
Always amazing and so great to be back at the best Lebanese restaurant in the Northwest
Not enough accolades to describe this dining experience. Authentic delicious Lebanese food to enjoy.
Very thing on the menu is wonderfully prepared and the presentation is beautiful. Impeccable and courteous service. The host, Moe, is extremely personable and makes sure that your dining experience is
beyond satisfactory. The lamb shank, lamb and chicken kabobs, and shrimp are perfectly prepared and delicious. Make sure that you try Al Amir and I am sure that you will continue to visit this estblishment.
Food was okay.. service was okay.. ladies were nice.. nothing was nothing above average. It almost felt like they were irritated that we were there. Went there for belly dancers, there wasn’t any. So meh.. there’s a Persian food cart right outside the restaurant with great price and better food ( in my opinion)
Not someplace you want to miss for Lebanese food. The quality, service and atmosphere makes it an experience rather than just a meal.
We have always had a great meal at Al-Amir. They have the absolute BEST falafel in the world. Excellent chicken, lamb, and hummus. You cannot go wrong. Even better? The service. Mo and his lovely Lydia treat you like family. We try to get to Al-Amir at least once every 3 months, since we live outside of Portland.
Cannot beat the sincere and wonderful service of the gracious hosts and staff. The food is fantastic as well.
My husband and I were excited to try this restaurant, however we we were a bit disappointed. The service was great, however the food and ambiance left much to be desired. Ambiance was dull and the food was very bland.
