Diner Reviews
  • "Lovely restaurant, very romantic and belly dancer come out at 8.30pm. Food was yummy, had the shrimp and the mixed grill and shared it all Used a taste card so it was cheaper but can imagine it to work out very pricey"
    dined on 10/04/2014
  • "The restaurant was very good, we visited on a Thursday night and the restaurant was quarter occupied with customers. The staff didn't really know or explain how the Taste London card works but I eventually got clarification which was good. The food was really good and could not fault it, the service could have been much better one of the main dishes was forgotten so one of my guest had to wait 15 min for her food whilst they made it which meant our food getting cold. We had a couple of bottles of wine which I'd preferred if they had left it on the table because they leave it in one ice bucket and staff top up your glass when it goes low, this didn't always work as I had to ask for a top up. Apart from this I could not fault anything else."

  • "Awesome restaurant, amazing food and the belly dancers were outstanding"
    dined on 25/09/2013
  • "The restaurant is very impressive looking, but I felt the food could have been better especially as its quite expensive. Belly dancers also were average."
    dined on 08/04/2013
  • "over a hundred pounds for two! lots of low price mezze, but small mains in our "banquet" the fish was overcooked and ordinary. They have four belly dancers at 8.30. very noisy. Good for a group, not individuals."
    dined on 28/03/2014
  • "Amazing as always, great food, and great atmosphere love this restaurant everytime I visit."
    dined on 29/03/2014
  • "Levant is a gem hidden away off bond street. The restaurant has a fantastic ambience, delicious food and great entertainment when the belly dancers appear mid-meal!"
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "We arrived at the restaurant fairly early (7pm) & was met by a manager telling 3 waitresses off. Tried to order drinks & the waitresses were more interested in having a conversation with each other. Once we got to the table, the service got even worse! Drinks took too long to arrive at the table, or the waitress had to be reminded of our order. The food took far too long to arrive. 1 of our group was a vegetarian & the option served to him was terrible - he left it untouched on the plate & the waitress failed to check with him why he had not eaten. 1 of the group had to leave before the desert course was served, as a result of the delay serving the main course. Then I was called the next morning to say they had undercharged us & wanted £10"
    dined on 06/03/2014
  • "I went there for my birthday last week with some friends and we chose the meat feast and veggie feast set menus. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it! The decor and ambience of the restaurant was great and there was belly-dancing for entertainment. I'd definitely return and recommend it for group bookings."
    dined on 06/03/2014
  • "I went back after a few yearsand the food and service was as amazing as ever! Would defo recommend to others"
    dined on 18/02/2014
  • "I enjoyed every bit of my experience at Levant from the beautiful venue to the amazing food and service we received. I would most certainly come back here again...a great place to celebrate a special occassion!"
    dined on 01/03/2014
  • "I'm a massive fan of Lebanese cuisine. Have tried numerous middle eastern restaurants all over London. This is by far the best I have been to. Amazing ambiance, atmosphere and food was delicious. Finished meal with some traditional mint tea and got a 4 tier stand of delicious baklava and Turkish delight!! Finished a delicious meal off perfectly. Can't wait to go back."
    dined on 27/02/2014
  • "The food was really good and the atmosphere was fun. We weren't in a hurry so the fact the service was totally inattentive didn't really matter but I can see it might be annoying. Be aware of a charity donation and cover charge added to the bill. Belly dancers were fun but went on a bit!"
    dined on 25/02/2014
  • "Had dinner at Levant for my parents' anniversary. The quality of the starter and main courses was very good indeed and service was very attentive. The waitress who served us kindly packaged up our leftover food. The baclava was a slight letdown, but overall a really enjoyable experience and very good value."
    dined on 21/02/2014
  • "As always had a brilliant time, with amazing food after food after food. Chairs on seperate tables are a bit low and for those Of us who are taller we might find our knees holding the table up. One VERY IMPORTANT THING please scrap the dj music, would much prefer to listen to some Arabic music all evening This would have been 5 stars for ambience."
    dined on 15/02/2014
  • "Very enjoyable place, a tad over priced but nice......"
    dined on 08/02/2014
  • "Went there since there weren't too many options for a last minute booking for 8 people near Marlybone. Good: * The food is actually not too bad. We had the meat set menu and the kabobs are pretty good. Bad: * They don't tell you that if you have a group of more than 5, they don't give you the option to order from the a la carte menu. No where do they mention this on the website. * You can't just order a few of the set menus and share, so if you're not that hungry or are not big eaters, TOUGH. If you have 8 people, you have to order at least 7 set menu items * The music is LOUD! You can't even think. We had to ask them to turn down the music speakers near us 3 times. Awful."
    dined on 07/02/2014
  • "This restaurant has fabulous food however it is let down by its non existent table booking policy. We originally dined here the first time at Christmas and had to wait 1 hour before we could sit even though we had booked in advance. We put that down to the Christmas party season. However we dined again this weekend and despite booking a table in advance for 9.15 we were continually dismissed with "another five minutes" everytime we checked back with the gentleman in charge of seating the diners. We were eventually offered out table at 10.00pm but only after my husband had stern words with the manager regarding their table booking policy. Interestingly, our table was vacant and set as were many others."
    dined on 08/02/2014
  • "I was extremely disappointed with the service at Levant especially as it is such a beautiful restaurant, and the food was actually very good. Firstly we were squeezed onto the very end of a line of booths, we didn't have enough space, customers and staff kept bumping past us the whole night. We asked to move to an empty table which had more space, but were refused. We ordered our meals, and didn't feel the staff were very friendly. After ordering our meals we felt uncomfortable the whole night as staff were constantly checking out table to see if they could take our plates. One waitress even took a plate off our table with food on it and walked off. The whole experience was not relaxing and enjoyable.On a positive note the food was tasty."
    dined on 13/12/2013
  • "good service, nice spectacle by the belly dancers, food is good and big portion! I think is a perfect place to go for date or also to chill. it will make you totally forget that you are in London"
    dined on 28/01/2014
  • "It was a special treatment for my boyfriend's birthday, he loves Lebanese food, has great knowledge of it , but this was a such a disappointment.... Forget that I've asked for a "nice table" booking 2 weeks in advance and was given the worst one.... The only what lift up your night out - bailey dancers (if you can appreciate it) I doubt we will be back to this place"
    dined on 24/01/2014
  • "Although I have been here on many occasions, I do find the food here overpriced for what it is. The selection of food and drink is there, entertainment is fab, but it is overpriced for vegetarians."
    dined on 01/07/2013
  • "Not the best service ever but good quality food and a fun atmosphere. There was a misunderstanding about vouchers which meant the service was poor but overall an ok experience."
    dined on 19/08/2013
  • "Beautiful ambiance, lovely food, great service, stunning mocktails, a little pricey but worth it for occasional gatherings. Definitely recommending this place!"
    dined on 20/12/2013
  • "Food took a very long time to come, so for work lunch its not great... we were there for 2.5 hours for 2 course meal. Food was great though and christmas crackers a nice touch."
    dined on 19/12/2013
  • "The food was gorgeous as usual, and plenty to go around, even for people with large appetites! Saturday night booking so table was limited to 2 hours which was made clear when I booked. Only set menus available with shared mezze to start, but each member of our party ordered a different main. This means the food comes out quickly so you are not rushing to finish within your allocated time. Belly dancers were good entertainment and make the dinner a little different from your standard meal out! Good time had by all. This restaurant isn't cheap but worth the treat occasionally!"
    dined on 14/12/2013
  • "I have eaten at Levant many times, for both social and also business team dinners. The food is always great and the set menus are always a good choice which provides ample food per person. I can highly recommend the leg of lamb! As always, the entertainment is a welcome break to eating and provides a little something different to the evening and is always a hit (and surprise) to any guests who have not been to Levant before!"
    dined on 29/09/2013
  • "As always the food was nice although a little overpriced. We ordered 4 mezzo and two mains and a bottle of wine and it was over £100. The service this time was also poor. One of our mezzo didn't turn up which we had to chase for. Then our mains never came. When I asked the waitress where our mains were her response was rather terse. I was rather surprised by the poor service given it was a Monday evening and the restaurant was barely half full. I've always enjoyed going to levant but will now think twice after this experience."
    dined on 09/12/2013
  • "I took my boyfriend here for his 20th, and I was pleasantly surprised by the ambience, food and service. However, what really blew me away was the seating area, the restaurant is set in a romantically lit, middle-eastern-esque lounge, with comfortable seating, drinks and food. The only criticism I have is the belly dancers didn't seem very engaged in the show, probably because they perform every night! Would definitely come here again."
    dined on 04/12/2013
  • "The service and ambience was fantastic, apart from one major mistake with the other were I had to wait an additional 10 minutes. The meat served was lukewarm and was very disappointed with the rubbery chicken. The chicken served was sorry rubbery a few of my guests were upset as they were looking forward to the food after such high reviews. Not all was bad as the starter was delicious but was extremely disappointed with the lukewarm to cold food."
    dined on 29/11/2013
  • "I booked Levant for a birthday dinner with the girls on a Friday night. From the moment we arrived the staff were brilliant. I had spoke to them earlier in the day and requested a booth if possible (there were 8 of us) and they gave us the best booth in the place so we had plenty of space to enjoy the evening. The food and drink were wonderful and we were guided on the right amount to order. The belly dancers came out around 8.30 and the show they performed was really enjoyable. All in all this was a great night out and I would highly recommend this for groups - fun, entertaining, relaxing evening with great food and drink."
    dined on 29/11/2013
  • "Amazing food but service was very slow and disorganised. Music was as loud as a night club so impossible to talk."
    dined on 30/11/2013
  • "We booked quite last minute, through top table, and had a table for 1900 on a busy pre-xmas Saturday.The host was completely welcoming, the food was amazing, the staff attentive and charming, the ambience wonderful. A total gem in a sea of restaurants in that area."
    dined on 30/11/2013
  • "I was shocked to see my bill as the £32.50 per head deal is mere miscommunication and misleading as they sneaked another £9.50 on the main per head although it is written on the menu (in Italics)to top it up with £13.00 service charge. The champagne we ordered was served in a long thin glass which was £9.50. Two sip and it was gone. I was a bit disappointed overall!!"
    dined on 24/11/2013
  • "The service was terrible. The waitress forgot to order our starters so we where waiting an hour for starters. The music wa too loud you couldn't hear yourself speak. There was no belly dancers which was a let down."
    dined on 23/11/2013
  • "Wonderful night made ten times more wonderful by the attentive and friendly staff. Really enjoyed the evening, music lighting and food were all excellent"
    dined on 18/11/2013
  • "We asked for a nice table as we were celebrating 2 birthdays. We we were squashed into a corner with a tiny table, we asked in vain to be moved and there seemed to be a lot of confusion. We could only have another table if we could leave by 9pm, at 7.30 this would have been very rushed. I asked for tap water 3 times before it arrived, drinks bill was wrong, at 9.20 we were asked to ensure they could have the table back by 9.30, we would easily have been finished but we got the impression that all the staff cared about was getting us out for the next sitting. Finally, the waiter spilt the dinner remains on my husbands brand new shirt, no apolgy or anything. By the way the prevoius vist my son had dinner remains dropped all over him!"
    dined on 16/11/2013
  • "The whole package at Levant never fails. Straight forward good value menus and a reasonable wine list. Fantastic environment with belly dancing and always a party atmosphere. Don't go I want to keep it all to myself:)) Seriously Ive been many times and just love the place btw so does my bank manager!! Enjoy"
    dined on 09/11/2013
  • "Levant never fails to impress me. Although initially given a less than ideal table when the restaurant when we arrived and the restaurant was just starting to fill up, after speaking the waiter and hostess, they kindly moved us to a perfect table in the corner. As I had hoped, the food was excellent and incredibly filling. We had two meat feasts and couldn't nearly finish it all. The belly dancers adding a nice touch, though overall, really liked the atmosphere and vibe of the place. It's not too loud (as long as you go before the live music starts at 10pm) and is different from some of the typical restaurants that often look and feel the same. Great for a special occasion."
    dined on 01/11/2013
  • "We ordered a set menu which gave us a fine variation in tastes. The downturn came when we nearly had finished, where we experienced too much eagerness from the waiter to end our meal. When there was wine left in the bottle, the waiter took out the wine glasses for 3 of our party of 5. A plate with a little food left was also removed without asking if the person had finished. And what was even more schocking was to have the bill, where there was an addition of service charge far beyond the 12.5% we expected from the menu. After some discussion, the waiter deleted the whole service charge. However, as you understand, the final part of the experience, including the attempt to cheat us, destroyed the good feeling we had up till then."
