Terrific food and great service, I liked this restaurant more than the Lebanese Taverna in Woodley Park because it was quieter and not so crowded.

Good service and the food was very good also. We ordered the Taverna salad to start and then chose several small plates (mezze) to share at the table. All we delicious as was the wine.

The past few times I have gone, my dinner companion and I have always made a dinner of the Mezes (appetizers). With the flatbread they provide, a bunch of mezes split in two is super filling! And, this way, you get to try a bunch of different things! Be careful though, service tends to be a little slow regardless if its a Saturday lunch or a Tuesday dinner. Order all the mezes at once, and reorder flat bread (if you want more) way before you run out.

The food was fresh and unique. Servers were very friendly. Glad this was on Groupon or we may never have tried it. Went there for our daughter's birthday and they brought out a nice dessert!

From Our Editors

In the dead of night in 1976, the Abi-Najm family boarded a cargo ship bringing only what they could carry; an escape from Civil War in Lebanon called for a quick getaway. They traveled across the ocean to safety in Arlington, Virginia, where they were able to open a small cafe in 1979. To save money, they changed the eatery’s name from “Athenian Taverna” to “Lebanese Taverna” so that they only had to update one word on the eatery’s marquee.

From these modest beginnings grew a series of eateries that today comprises of six cafes and four quick-service cafés, all still operated by the Abi-Najm clan. One look at the menu explains the success: chicken shawarma, spicy hummus, lamb tartare—all Lebanese staples that helped the restaurant earn a spot on Northern Virginia magazine's list of 25 Iconic Eats. There's even kibbeh, or stuffed meatballs, which blend ground beef, lamb, almonds, and pine nuts into fried spheres suitable for felling miniature bowling pins on top of the table before entrees arrive. The decor is as striking as the cuisine; inside the Bethesda location, light filters through the colored glass lanterns that decorate the dining room.
