Kareem was recommended to me and they did not disapoint! My daughter and I loved the atmosphere and the warm welcome we received. The Executive Chef and waitress checked on us to see if everything was okay with our meal. We had a pleasant experience. We will definitely return with a friend.

I had never had Lebanese food prior to this dinner. I found it delicious. My daughter and I shared an appetizer and a dinner, which was more than sufficient. Dessert (we tried several) was equally good. I would definitely return and tell others about Kareems.

Great food and service was good but due to only one server and the manager on duty it was not excellent as it usually is.

Service and food was excellent. We ordered a Melbac wine but was out of that but recommended another choice which was even better at the same price.

This was our third or fourth return to Kareem's. The food has always been good, but, in the past, service was spotty.

There is a new front-of-house manager who seems to have smoothed the rough spots in the service and we are looking forward to returning. The evening we were there, there were several large parties and we were not sure how they would be able to handle large and small tables mixed. Not to worry, the service was quite well done. Our server, Raphael, was a nice young man who knows the menu and the wine list.
We look forward to returning soon with some friends.

Food is absolutely fantastic and the space itself a perfect mix of stylish and comfortable.

Food delivery, though, has always been a problem. Servers are friendly and the restaurant’s ability to keep your water and their delicious freshly made bread topped up are spot on. But after that it goes wrong.....drinks orders take too long and food takes a long time and then it’s not uncommon for mains arrive almost as soon as starters hit the table.

Food is so good we forgive it but, if they could just overcome the delivery to table issues, we’d be much more frequent diners.

But please go - you might be a bit frustrated with service but the food will win you over.

An absolutely authentic and exquisite restaurant with awesome middle eastern food. The hummus, baba ganoush and beef shwarma were excellent. The pita breads were hot and tastey. The dessert baklava was excellent as well. An absolute must for all Naples diners and tourists.

Third time I have eaten there in 6 weeks. This was the best time of the three, although they have always been very good. Even the Lebanese red wine they recommend is really good. My wife and her family make the best Lebanese food I have ever had, but this is next; and when my wife doesn't want to cook, this is where we would eat.

Kareems never disappoints. It's one of my favorite restaurants in SW Florida and we always try to bring out of town guests there as long as they are willing to eat Lebanese cuisine. The steaming hot pita is the best I've ever had! The last two times I've dined there I've had the stuffed vegetable entree and it's absolutely amazing. My husband and a friend had kabobs and both cleaned their plates. Another friend had a chicken entree and she also said everything was delicious. Kareems in definitely a keeper!

Glorious hot from the oven pitas appear, pale puffed little delights that tear open with a tiny burst of steam, and cry out for something to dip.
Soothed by a little dish of olive oil and oregano, attention can pleasantly turn to the menu.
There is no shortage of scoop-able delicacies for which the pita is the perfect vehicle... and there is so much more.
Redolent of exotic spices; cinnamon, mint, lemon, and toasted pine nuts, the main courses of lamb, chicken, and rice stuffed vegetables are all authentic and delicious.

The chef has a refined sensibility, and a skillful hand.

And if the service sometimes lags, once a fresh order of perfect pitas arrives all is forgiven as you desperately seek a morsel to mate.

This was our first time at kareems. I was a little hesitant as we haven’t had Lebanese food before. Our server was very helpful and knowledgeable with regards to the menu and things we should try.
The food was absolutely delicious - my husband had the lamb shank and I had the lamb chops special - outstanding! This will definitely be one of our go to restaurants in Naples from now on.

Kareems Lebanese Kitchen serves authentic Middle Eastern food. There's a wide range of delicious meze selections, and the lamb dishes are wonderful. We had a flavorful lamb shank where the meat fell right off the bone. This is an outstanding restaurant in every way.

Kareem’s exceeded expectations. The unassuming location opens up to a pristine dining room that is modern and elegant. The staff is friendly and astute but not overbearing. We got a chefs tasting platter and a kabob plate to share between the 2 of us and it was ample food. Everything was fresh and delicious. 10/10, sad that we were only visiting. Would go again!

It would have been gracious had the host an idea that I was a return customer and was bringing someone new to the restaurant.

While but a few people in the restaurant, we were initially shunted off to a corner where the music was loud.

Food was outstanding. The best authentic Lebanese food we have ever had. We went with another couple and they could not get over how good it was. In fact, one said he was eating slowly so he could savor and enjoy all the wonderful, different flavors of his dish.

Since Kareem's Kitchen has opened, we've become semi-regulars, dining there at least once a month. The food is always great, especially the tabbouleh. Best tabbouleh since eating at a friends who was also from Beirut.

Staff is always pleasant and now recognizes us as "regulars". Nice touch!

Exceeded our expectations in every way! The chef came up to check on us twice to make sure all was ok. The leg of lamb in the ceramic pot was outstanding and enough to share for two.
Wish they had a full bar and a little more extensive wine list is all.

This was our second visit to Kareems and as before, we chose to sit outside. The service was impeccable and the food was excellent. As we did the first time we ordered Chef Rashid's Platter as a shared starter, followed by a wrap and lamb. We're already planning our next meal there: the spicy, garlic and traditional hummus (all incredibly creamy and unlike anything you can buy in the stores) and I want to try the Fatteh Lamb instead of the lamb shank which was the special entree last Saturday. Towards the end of the evening Chef Rashid stopped by the tables and we were able to tell him personally how much we enjoy his cooking and ambience.
