In Al Wadi's warm, recently renovated space, resident chefs concoct traditional Lebanese dishes with the contemporary flare of elegant presentation. The extensive menu features 11 vegetarian mezza options and nine dishes with hearty helpings of delicately prepped meats. Entrees include finger-friendly fare such as the lamb kebabs ($19) and lighter consumption stars such as the Mediterranean salad dressed with olives and feta cheese ($9). With the restaurant's impeccably detailed adornment of amber lighting and earth-toned surfaces, the space welcomes guests for gatherings for any special occasion, including carbon-copy Wednesday.


The Boston Phoenix reviewed Al Wadi and gave it three out of four stars. The West Roxbury Patch likes the restaurant's take on classic Lebanese dishes. Yelpers give Al Wadi an average rating of 3.5 stars:

  • A lot of people will want to test the kibbeh beseneyah ($16). They will not be disappointed. The portion here is a pie slice of the lamb/bulgur meatloaf, stuffed with more lamb and pine nuts. It's the subtle handling of sweet spices that makes this one sing. – Robert Nadeau, Boston Phoenix
  • Delicious stuffed grape leaves, baba ghanoush, baked kibbeh and superb labneh. Will definitely return to try additional dishes. – Deb C.,Yelp

Al Wadi Restaurant

At Al Wadi Restaurant, cooks transport palates to Beirut with flame-grilled kebabs and stews seasoned with Lebanese spices. Seated at linen-clad tables, diners clasp skewers of marinated beef tenderloin grilled over an open flame, and sink teeth into baked haddock with roasted pine nuts, served over spiced rice. The dining room bathes every meal in elegance, with tiny chandeliers illuminating the inlets carved into the walls. Twinkling lights illuminate the bar, changing colors so servers know when they’re allowed to walk without disrupting foot traffic.
