What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.5

You're going to need an hour on the train to get to Tanoreen. But if you appreciate Middle Eastern or Mediterranean food, it's more than worth it.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

We are always excited to eat at Tanoreen. The service is consistently attentive and personable and the owner always takes the time to greet her guests. Her daughter as well as the rest of the staff are also wonderful. The food was exquisite and flavorful. We had baked Bronzino and shared hummus and filet mignon sliders. My sons had Fette and chicken roasted with Pesto. Each dish was better than the next. I strongly recommend you trying these as well as their many wonderful other dishes. The Fig-Tini was amazing. We had dessert which never disappoints. It was a magnificent experience as always. If you’ve never eaten here, you need to. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Tanoreen.

Service was outstanding. Food was excellent and authentic. Our waiter recommended some of the specials, which were dishes we had never tried before. All were amazing! Our only complaint was the sound level, which is extremely high. The place could really use some sound absorbers or softeners. Otherwise, a real original!

Flavor-punched food from lengthy appetizer and entree menu. Dark/fluorescent dining room at night that is a little 'cold.' Lunch has a warmer lit floor. Brussel sprouts are still my favorite here

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.

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 ❣️

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!
