Our meal at Tanoreen was just wonderful. Our Table was waiting for us when we arrived and everything just got better from there. We shared one of the special appetizers, a cauliflower “steak” with cheese and breadcrumbs and harissa. What a treat! But the best was to come — 2 different types of squash and a small eggplant all stuffed with a delightful light ground lamb mixture. They were all swimming in the most fragrant, delicious light tomato and harissa sauce. Delicious, beautiful, fragrant — and plenty! A meal to remember.

This may be one of my all time favorite restaurants in Brooklyn. It is consistently outstanding. The flavors in each dish - from appetizers to specials - are unique and addicting!! The staff is also great; they are no-nonsense professional waiters.

I love Tanoreen. The food is absolutely delicious, the staff treats you like family, and you never feel rushed. I always recommend the cauliflower steak, the fennel salad, and the knafeh for dessert!

Tonight we had the most perfect, delicious, fresh meal: Tuna entrée & Shulbato special paired with white wine 😍 we could not have been happier with every aspect of our dining experience. Tanoreen is consistently amazing all around, we tell everyone about how it’s the best place to eat in Bay Ridge. Cheers ❣️

Second time at Tanoreen and the food was delicious as the first visit. I had the lamb shank which was falling off the bone amazing and the kanafeh was out of this world. Overall, great food, great value and great service.

Went for Valentines Day, and it was nice that the place wasn't over-crowded (even at peak time 7:30pm). The menu here is always great, and varies nicely with the specials. The chef always comes around to greet customers and check on the quality. Service is good, they don't hurry you (again, even on Valentine's day). They also always have interesting wines and beers, so that's another plus.

Can’t say enough what a great experience we had at this restaurant. Excellent, authentic food from an extensive menu and interesting wine list. We had wine from Lebanon for the first time and it was great! The service was beyond attentive and the owner even came over to chat with us for a long time, which was lovely. All in all, a 5-star hit.

Loved Tanoreen! The food is the most authentic Lebanese food I've ever come across (aside from my mother in law's Lebanese cooking). Very pleasant service and great cocktails! We were there for New Year's Eve and it was such a happy atmosphere! Loved the food, the drinks and the dessert! Delicious!!

A phenomenal venue for Middle eastern cuisine! We have dined here many times and have never been disappointed. The only complaint (and it's a minor one)? When it's crowded (as it often is---it's a deservedly popular place) the noise level is such that is very difficult to carry on a conversation---a situation somewhat mitigated by the fact that one is more often chewing than talking. A great, satisfying, delicious dining experience!

My mother and I came down from Syracuse and Albany respectively for a concert in Manhattan. As Palestinian rights activists, we heard amazing things about Tanoreen and its Palestinian owner/chef and made it a point to visit. We were thrilled we did. It was a quiet saturday- between lunch and dinner hours so the place was fairly empty which means our food came out very quickly. We're vegetarians so we stuck to some veg appetizers - a salad with halloumi cheese (to die for), the cauliflower steak and the butternut squash napolean. All were fresh, innovative and delicious. The Christmas r&b music on repeat was a little too much but Tanoreen is a fantastic spot and we'd love to visit again.

Very good Mediterranean food in generous portions and attractively plated. The small restaurant is attractive and comfortable. The service was polite and attentive.
They boast a full bar but I could not get a Bloody Mary, also the baklava was not up to the standard of the other offerings.
Charming and tasty at an acceptable price.

Still a total stand-out, worth coming from elsewhere. The ingredients are fresh and, while the tastes and spices are all middle eastern, the recipes are so original. For top quality food (worthy of a special occasion), the prices are reasonable. The space is always full and lively, so things can get noisy on the weekend, but it's part of the atmosphere. Be sure to make a reservation!!

Enjoyed our first visit. My husband and I agree that we would like to try more things on the menu. We both really enjoyed the food and drinks. Service was a little lacking but didn't seriously detract. He was assigned to a large table near the end of our meal--but other wait staff stepped in and go us our check, etc. The woman who greeted us was very gracious and attentive to placing us away from young kids--not an issue for us, but it is a very family friendly restaurant. Dishes perfect for groups. It can get noisy. Overall enjoyable and I think we'll return.

We liked everything about it except the noise level. It was difficult to hear each other until we rearranged the seating so we sat at 45 degree angles to each other. That saved the evening.
