    The staff was friendly and very attentive. I dined with a party of 6 and everyone seemed to enjoy the food and the portions were generous . We shared the mezza appetizer which was delicious and definitely enough for the 6 of us. I ordered a chicken bowl which was tasty but the chicken kabob was overcooked.

    Taboon never disappoints. Made a reservation for Valentines Day dinner and the ambiance was lovely with their outdoor and indoor string lights. We always start with the delicious cauliflower appetizer. Portion is very generous and could even be plenty as a vegetarian lunch meal. Lamb and beef kebabs were well seasoned and tender, and love all the different “extras” on the plate: roasted tomato and onion, the bright purple pickles in addition to two types of rices, hummus, salad and bread. A nice treat for the holiday was a box of chocolates they gave that we took home for dessert! Very nice people running the place, also. 👍🏼 Street parking can be iffy but not impossible.

    Restaurant was in a nice area off the main street. We had made a reservation for 6:15 but the light freeway traffic had us arrive 1/2 hour early. They seated us anyway. They have inside and covered outdoor seating. We sat inside. It's a large restaurant. The waiter promptly brought us the menus and we ordered our drinks. They serve beer and wine and offer some cocktails. We ordered two appetizers to start, the pickles and the halloumi cheese. The pickle plate was very ample and the cheese was tasty matched with the pita bread. My husband ordered the salmon entree and I had the lamb kabab wrap. This was a lot of food. Took most of mine home for a second meal. The lamb was done medium and the cooks did a good job. My husband's salmon was also perfect. We will be coming back!

    I've been to Taboon many times and the food and service is always good. This was first visit for my relatives for holiday lunch and they loved the beef and chicken kabob bowls. I had shrimp bowl with the rice medley , salad, hummus, and pita bread, so good. Nice outdoor ambiance too, dog friendly

    The food was so delicious! We celebrated an "Easter" dinner here as our family was going to be out of town. The appetizer sampler was delicious and the falafel was so flavorful. I also really recommend the steak, chicken, and also lamb chops. Service was great and the prices are reasonable for the quantity of food! Definitely recommend if you are in the area.

    Normally, we get food to go and have thoroughly enjoyed it. Dining in is what we will fo at Taboon's more often.The server recommended a cauliflower appetizer and it was very delicious. We loved the rest of our appetizers and main course dishes. I highly recommend the lamb chops. The Lebanese red wine 🍷 was smooth, flavorful and went wonderfully with the dishes. The ownership seems to be community oriented. There is art on the walls done by artists in the area for sale.

    We held our NYE family dinner of 20 people at Taboon and we could not be more satisfied. The service from Dennis and the staff was amazing. The family meals are an excellent value with plenty of food options for even the pickiest eaters. The ambience was terrific with skylights in our private room. It's one of the best restaurant experiences I've had in a long time. Thank you, Taboon Mediterranean Long Beach!

    The service was delightful. No one rushed us. Had to wait for our party an hour after reservation and they were fine with it. We were seated and served appetizers and drinks as we waited. Definitely go again and again. I asked for rare and it was medium rare just to let you know maybe ask for raw if you want rare . Still delicious!!!

    I ordered tea & never got it. Never complained why I didn't get it, didn't look at the bill until I got home and noticed I was charged for it. My fault for not complaining about getting it nor about paying for something I didn't receive. Next time that won't happen this was my first time at this restaurant.
