Semiramis serves Lebanese cuisine that is house made daily. Owner and chef Joseph Abraham creates authentic cuisine using lean meats and traditional spices. Guests can enjoy his falafels, which were voted best in the city in 2009 by Chicago Magazine, or start off the meal with pickled turnips and marinated olives. From traditional options like baba ghanoush, hummus and tabbouleh to lamb and beef shawarma, diners can enjoy Semiramis appetizers and sandwiches that are filled with flavorful combinations that transport them to Lebanon.Guests looking for a more fulfilling option for lunch or dinner can opt for the lamb and beef kafta or a chicken kabob. Vegans in the group will also enjoy Semiramis' vegetarian plate and the lentils and rice, or wait until the chef offers his signature dish, Vegetarian ZouZou. Don't forget to add a baklava trio to finish off the meal.

    The service was not great at all, we waited about 30-35 minutes after our appetizer just to put in our entree order. Unacceptable when there is only one more group(of 4) in the restaurant. The waiter also didn’t fill our water cups up, i had to ask at the end of our lunch because all of us were so thirsty from how dry the food is. The waiter also did not check up on us. Maybe once the entire time we were eating our entrees. The food was drying. We had the chicken kabob sandwich, WHICH I HIGHLY DO NOT RECOMMEND, the taste was awful and everyone in my table did not like it. I had the Mixed grill, which i DO recommend because the flavor is good, the only complaint is that it is super drying. We also had the Chicken Kafta, Beef and Lamb Kafta and it was okay, very drying again but the Lamb did not taste good. I also had bought a groupon where I would get $70 worth of food for only $45. My total including tax was $71.65 and so I should only pay the $1.65. The waiter tried making me pay an additional $8.86 for what he claims was tax. TAX ON THE RECEIPT SAID $6.66 AND MY GROUPON COVERED EVERYTHING BUT ONE DOLLAR. They kept trying to charge me the additional $8 but i certainly did not let them scam me. Very unprofessional on how they handled that. Overall, i will never go back to Semiramis and I definitely would not recommend this to anyone. Don’t go here unless you want this experience.

    hi HaaO , we appreciate you review. We would like you to know. First you made your reservation thru open table and at the same time you used a groupon, which usually we don't accept because those are different companies and you get a discount from each one.Second we didn't charge u for gratuity and we didn't get any from you. Third, we have a minimum charge on all credit card & we charge yours for 1.95$. We gave u & ur friends coupons (30%) and free dessert. thank u for coming.

    As usual, Semiramis never disappoints as the food and service is immaculate. You will probably take a home a to go box as the portions are pretty big.

    My husband and I have been to Semiramis several times over the past few years. However on this visit we came with 2 others (4 total) and all had a bad food experience. Appetizers were great, but all of our entree meals were terrible. Three of us had various kabob sandwiches and they came to us cold and meat was dry and overcooked. One of us had a regular entree and it, also, was dry and overcooked. Don't know what happened but the food went from great to pretty bad (though the appetizers were delicious). With so many places to choose from we likely won't return.

    I wish I had the recipe for their lentil soup. It was fabulous. My daughter and I both ordered the roasted chicken. It was done to perfection. A crispy nicely charred skin and moist chicken. The tabouli was very lemony which is how we like it. And the roasted vegetables were still crispy but cooked nicely.

    Very tasty Lebanese food. Potentially the best kibbe I've ever had. The grape leaves were also really good. The fattoush was a little soggy and the quality of the beef kebab was so so, but overall really tasty and I'd go back. They had one waitress for about 5 tables, so the service was a bit slow, but not horribly so.

    This place changed owners and taste along with it. We used to love it and although they tried to keep the menu the same it is not to our liking. Dolma was semi warm, the shawarma must have been old-it was overly spiced to cover for poor taste and we didn't like the French fries. My friend ordered chicken warp and after few bites she just left it on the plate.
