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.

Always good food and service. The patio is open for those who want outdoor seating. Chef's tasting platter and apps are always a good way to start and I love the variety of rose wines.

We dine here about once a week. We have been being seated at one of the two tables near the bar and it is totally enjoyable. We could not get our regular table and were put at the last table in the.corner of the restaurant. There were three men and three women at the next table. They were so laid with talking and laughing that we could hear each other. We ate quickly and left. If we are agin made to sit in that area, we will leave and think about not coming back. To answer the next question, it will depend on our next time at Lebanese Taverna.

Please know that we booked this via OpenTable but when we arrived per our reservation at noon, the restaurant was closed. No signage was available. IF they were not open, it should have been noted in the OpenTable app.

Love this for modern twist on Lebanese food with lots of class and style. Drinks are always interesting twist on traditional favorites. We always get the kofta kebab for kids and we mix it up with samplers or other lamb based dishes. Hummus is always so tasty too! Been here at least once every few months or so and will keep coming back!

Dined here numerous times over the years and the quality of the food has always been consistent, and the service excellent. Unfortunately, this time the food was off. The shrimp on my kabobs was overdone and hard, but what really upset me was the person expediting the food from the kitchen was not wearing a mask. He had it on but pulled down around his neck. All other employees I encountered were wearing their masks and complying with all distancing rules. I’m very disappointed this employee was allowed to get away with not complying with the regulations we all must follow.

Went for a socially-distanced business lunch. Food was tasty, spicy and generous servings. High marks for the attentive, but not intrusive, service we received. Would recommend, would definitely return.

We have eaten here many times. The weather is still warm, so we chose the patio. The food and service are always excellent, and the patio was nicely lit for the evening. Our waitress helped us choose a bottle of wine from their extensive and largely Lebanese collection. The freshly made pita and hummus trio are always the best way to start out the night. There are several new appetizers on the menu that we selected, along with some old favorites such as the Shrimp Ankar and Kibbeh. Overall another great dining experience and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

A great place for a good Lebanese fare. The swarma and rice dish reminded me of my time in the middle east. The humus was a great appetizer!

This is one of our local restaurants we go to often (or order take out from more recently). This was our first time to eat in the restaurant since COVID, the food was excellent, my only comment is the wine list is now almost exclusively from Lebanon and we don't know many of their wines, so it's hard to choose a good wine from the list.

Unfortunately we were very rushed to eat and get out... understand it is a week day, but as we say down at 7, were informed to order right away else the kitchen will close soon.. this happens 3-4 times. Very surprised their kitchen closed at 8. Ridiculous

In late Sept 2020, my entire party—4 diners from 3 households—chose Lebanese Taverna as our first restaurant to go to since Covid-19 started in March 2020. It was definitely the right choice: they had great processes (plenty of hand sanitizer, tables distanced from each other, seating our party of 4 at a table for 6, menus that we accessed from our phones, etc.). I love the fresh pita and baba ghanoush. The mixed kebab platter was fantastic, as always, as was the red sangria. Our party hadn’t seen each other in many months, and we’re grateful to LT for providing this safe space for all of us to see each other.
