If you go in before 6 the place is empty, but it takes forever to get your drinks. They open at 4 --how hard can it be?

Their tuna is incredible! And, the falafel salad is amazing! I normally don't care for falafel, at other venues..... but I can't get enough of it at Gemmayze!

I love Arabic food. This place is by far the BEST Lebanese food I have ever had. The service and food were impeccable. I would gladly go again and pay full price...it's worth it.

We ordered several small plates, and a side of garlic sauce for our pita bread, and ended up with a huge and satisfying meal, with a great sampling of many different dishes.

From Our Editors

Cousins Elias Hajjar and Nicholas Aubrey take yearly trips back to Lebanon to visit their family, but they can eat authentic Lebanese cuisine without leaving the confines of their own restaurant. With Gemmayze, which is named after a bohemian neighborhood in Beirut, they "wanted to create not only a menu that exemplified what's happening in Beirut and Lebanon right now, but we wanted to re-create the atmosphere,” Hajjar said in a Detroit Metromix article. “So the colors on the walls and ceiling are light and very clean and refreshing, and the menu reflects that as well.”

Inside the multi-level dining room, dangling lights twist like a strand of DNA above tables topped with shareable plates of hummus, grape leaves, and kibbe nayee—minced raw meat with bulgur and spices. Each dish is made from scratch using recipes that date back generations. Nearby, decorative palm tree appliqués cling to windows and a large brushed metal frame displays a variety of vintage forks, which can only be wielded by the rightful ruler of England. After dinner, patrons can move into the lounge and perch atop comfy ottomans and banquettes swaddled in rich fabrics while sipping wine or a cocktail.
