My wife, 2 grown sons and I went for dinner after Memorial service at Arlington. Needed good food and to decompress. Had wine and beer, 3 appetizers and main courses all of which were very good and true to the Lebanese heritage. Service was attentive, timing of dishes was fine. Atmosphere was upbeat, loud and comfortably casual. Decor was welcoming and artsy. Would certainly recommend for a tasteful ethnic meal.

Our family group of 12 dined at the Lebanese Taverna and we loved the food. I lived in the Middle East for five years and developed a fondness for the local food. Originally, the reservation was booked for 10, but 2 others were overlooked, we needed a table for 12. The management reacted quickly putting tables together and we all dined comfortably. The atmosphere was very good, service excellent and the food was super. My Daughter and Son in Law served in the Army in Iraq and enjoyed the experience. Many Arabic restaurants don't get the Tabouleh right. They did at this restaurant. The pita bread was great, while not pure flat bread iike in the Middle East, but tasty. I ate too much of it.

Nothing about any of the food we ordered was authentic Lebanese food. It was so overpriced for what it is. The fatet eggplant was a disaster. They bring you the yogurt on the side to add yourself. Was by far the worst fatet I have ever had. The falafel was dry and tasteless and 90% bread. The shawarma was a gyro and not a Lebanese shawarma. The waitress we had was incompetent. She forgot our drink order, and half of the items we ordered. Not recommended as a Lebanese restaurant at all.

Food was very close to the real Lebanese food. Nice dishes, well put, excellent baba ganoush and Tabouleh. A must if you love middle-Eastern gastronomy.
