A wonderful surprise on 25th St!! Excellent Lebanese/Mediterranean food at a good price. We will go here again. I recommend the appetizer combo, the shank steak and the half chicken!

Every time I take a friend here, they become longtime customers. This place is a gem. The service is outstanding, the food is wonderful, even for vegetarians like me. It has white tablecloth atmosphere, food, and service with very reasonable prices. Everything is freshly made, including the hot from the oven pita. I love this place!

We love Lebanese food and were really hoping to find a great place to eat it. Tannourine needs an update with decor and ambiance. The food was just ok. Appetizers were good and some of the entrees were delicious: lamb shank stew, couscous and veggies, but some were flavorless. I would love to see this place update itself and then rework a few menu options.

Service was terrible plus they did not have any lamb dishes as they claim they had a catering. Isn't that the sole reason why anyone would go to a Lebanese/Mediterranean restaurant ?? Hello!!!

The food is just outstanding. Very happy. The Appetizer they give you is super yummy. The Schwarma is the best I have ever had. Looking forward to my next visit there.

This is our first experience with Tannourine and it has been very positive. The staff are very attentive and the service is good. The lamb shanks that my husband ordered is very tasty and flavorful. I had the marinated prawns served with scampi style. It came with rice and vegetables. Again it's full of flavor and the texture is just right. Since we had too much pita breads at the beginning and we ordered a sampler of hot and cold mezzas which are very good as well, we couldn't finished our meal. I also like the restaurant setting and ambiance. Good for couples and small group. I would definitely go back again.

Food was good. Service was quite slow, but he was very friendly. There was only one person serving all the tables. We ran out of water; so, we decided to share our water with each other.

Visited with my seven colleagues for a work dinner. The place was quiet and not many people. Some of us arrived a bit late but there was no rush from the servers so that was good. Unfortunately there were never any rush from them ever throughout our dinner. The service was very poor and we had to remind our server to pick the plates off our table and we had to ask several times when we wanted more to drink. The food was good and you get a lot for the money. The the service and the ambience is just not there.

Good middle eastern food. The food was almost authentic. Arayyes were excellent. Kibbeh and babaganouj were very good, hummus was ok, and borak cheese was too salty. Service overall was good.

Grill chicken and beef was good. The minced meat/kabab was juicy but the spicing was overdone.

Plates at our table and others had food stuck to them. We went through 6 plates to find clean ones.

Even the better ones still had oily residue. Neither their eyesight nor their dishwasher worked very well!

No idea how this restaurant received high reviews...the staff were pleasant and spacious dining room. But food was a big disappointment. Bland, not hot, dry chicken, mushy eggplant. The hot appetizers were not crispy or warm/hot either. Won’t be back.

I eat here often. My family and I love the food. The service is not very good, it’s always really slow and not up to normal standards, however the food is excellent and the staff is very very nice. They do try so we go there with an open mind and patience. We will continue to eat here regardless.

It took almost an hour to get lunch for 3 people when the restaurant was nearly empty. Service was very slow and inattentive. Some of the food was barely warm when it arrived at our table. This was our first visit to this place and I am afraid we won’t be going back.

The food was fine. However, when I made reservations there was no mention of the fact that the restaurant would close at 8 p.m. for a private party. Had I known that I would have made my reservation for earlier than 7 p.m. The whole experience felt rushed.

I came here because of the reviews. But when I got there I found out they had a private party and was not open to the public. I got an email from them the same day (at around 3:30pm)
saying that "Unfortunately, the restaurant cannot accomodate this reservation and need to cancel it". My reservation was at 5pm and I was coming from the south bay (took me about 45 minutes to drive here.). My friend was coming from San Francisco. So we instead went to another restaurant instead. We were so disappointed in this place.

Early Sunday lunch is quiet, and it was easy to talk to our friends. They even allow the lunch menu on a Sunday! It is a family run business, and everyone is very friendly.

Made reservations weeks before on open table for a Friday evening. After driving 30 minutes through downpour of rain only for them to decline us because they have a private party. Blamed us-said if we would’ve arrived right at 7:30 we would’ve been seated, but since we were 15 minutes late (due to inclement weather), they sent us packing. If you’re going to have a private party, remove availability from open table. They were not sympathetic or caring at all. As a Lebanese-American, I was disappointed in their lack of service. I wouldn’t go back.
