Lebanese Taverna creates an environment where good food is enjoyed in good company. Each restaurant is a "home away from home," even though the food and ambiance are from across the globe. Whether you are visiting for the first time, the twentieth, or have been coming to a Lebanese Taverna for over 35 years, you will feel welcomed and like a member of the family. The atmosphere is bustling and each of the restaurants has its own design and slightly different flavors. That is because the food is made fresh.

We love Lebanese Taverna and have been going there for many years. The food is excellent. The only reason I did not give them excellent for service is that a server brought out our humus and he had his mask on his chin. Since I just finished my treatment for cancer I try to be very careful where I go. I reported him to another server. The next time he came out he had the mask higher but not covering his nose. If he came near us again I was going to leave. This is the only time in all our visits that I have had a problem. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Food was delicious! There were 2 of us, and we got the two different sampler meals and shared them. Great way to try several different things.

The bread & appetizers are the only items worth ordering. The mixed grill came out really dry & was served lukewarm - like it was let out to sit in the warmer for all day. I felt I could have gotten a much better meal at Moby Dicks or Darya’s Kabob for a fraction of the cost. Truly a disappointment.

I was very disappointed in the ambience, service and food at Lebanese Taverna. I ordered a shrimp kabob and the shrimp was dry and vegetables soggy. Even the rice pilaf was mediocre. I will not return.

Overall the food and service were very good. There was one disappointment however. I ordered the lamb kabobs and they were served with some type of seasoning that consisted of a small stem and leaves. I found myself going through the meat and removing this seasoning since I didn't want to eat stems that were rather firm and numerous. Also, I did not know what this seasoning was. Picking these stems off the meat was not enjoyable and reduced the enjoyment of what otherwise was a good experience.

I did feel a bit rushed , the Valentine’s Day special was great but if you had a table for two the plates came out to fast and didn’t fit on table . They brought out our entre before we finished course 1 and 2 that they already crowded the table . The timing of the food was terrible. Staff was nice and probably a bit overwhelmed . I would definitely go back because food was good

Service was not good. Failed to check on the table for 15 minutes after the food arrived, didn’t know what was on the sampler platter that was ordered, spilled a plate onto my wife when clearing the table. Quality was not what one would expect for the prices being charged.

Love this place! Amazing food! Service was kinda slow but server apologized by surprising us with free baklava so I was happy. Salad with grilled salmon, baba ghanoush, tabouleh, hummus are my favorites. Best baba ghanoush I’ve tried at any Mediterranean restaurant

It is such a treat to break away from the ordinary and Lebanese Taverna’s food is so flavorful. We drove from Montgomery County especially for it and were not disappointed by the food or service. We miss the Bethesda location and wish Lebanese Taverna would open a new full-service restaurant in Gaithersburg or elsewhere in western Montgomery County.

We ordered at 12:15 but food didn’t arrive till 12:50 and that was after reminding the server twice. People that got seated next to us afterwards got their food faster.

It took them more than an hour to serve us. I understand being busy but one plus hour is too much and we did not ask for anything special. All was in the menu.

We found LT extremely noisy with the tables-for two way too close. We asked to be changed since I wasn’t interested in the conversations at tables on either side of us.

Service was poor! The 2 servers spent most of their time on their phone and we have to flag them down for refills. They just didn’t care to be there, no smile. When it came time for the bill they came back to us and asked what we ate to make the bill. Anyhow we are their before and service was different. Food was good, though.

Lebanese Taverna is always good and this trip was no exception. We especially enjoy the Mezze and will definitely be back. As someone who doesn't enjoy the taste of lamb, I do wish they offered a few more entree options. The menu could offer more chicken, beef and fish to round out the many lamb dishes.

The food was excellent. The service was bad and super slow. The server never brought the bread and garlic humus we ordered. The food took forever to arrive and was cold by the time it got to our table.
