I want to start by thanking the team on duty 6/28, you all made our experience so unique and pleasant. The food was amazing and the drinks spectacular. Our favorites were the scallop cone and the crème brûlée caviar. The location is beautifully decorated and the guests can enjoy a relaxed and intimate ambiance. The place exudes refinement and the menu creativity. We will certainly return for the full tasting menu.

I had an incredible, life-changing experience at this Dinner Under the Stars meal. That's no exaggeration as this is my first time dining on the beach with the sunsetting in the west and its rays lighting up the early eastern evening moon as Sabrina my server provided incredible service for me and my date Ms. Minx!! I still have the taste of the Herb Crusted Chilean Bass in my mouth and have to research what green cheese layered the bass and how. A 5-Star××××× Experience.

We were a party of 5 and met for lunch at Beirut. Janisse & Denisse provided exceptional and friendly service. The restaurant is modern and beautiful. Great atmosphere. Everything we ordered from the appetizers to dessert was absolutely delicious and fresh. I haven’t had better Middle Eastern food . Will definitely make the trip from Ft Lauderdale again and again! Highly recommend Beirut!
