Really great food and service. Hummus of course is wonderful, and enough to fill you up alone.

Well prepared Lebanese dishes. Our favorite is the appetizer platters -- enough for two! Prices are very reasonable. The ambience of the Baltimore location is a little austere. The interior, while attractive, looks like it might have once been a steakhouse.

We are vegetarians - even though there aren't many options, we had a good time enjoying the platters and the sides. The servers were very cordial.

Authentic and tasty Lebanese food! The service was amazing as well. One of the guests is celiac and they did everything to adjust to her dietary needs. Will definitely be back!

Lebanese Taverna was one of our favorite restaurants till the last Mother’s Day dinner when I brought my wife and my two sons. Unfortunately, we didn’t have a good experience. The server was distracted. We had to ask her for bread a couple of times and even then we didn’t get what we asked for. Food didn’t arrive hot. Had less salt (and we don’t take a lot of salt). This was after it took almost 45 mins after we ordered. Please look into these issues.

As usual, the food was fantastic. We haven't ever had a bad meal from here! However, it's clear that they aren't following any COVID regulations regarding spacing or capacity. We went for dinner on Mother's Day, and it was PACKED. They weren't spacing out tables, people were seated back-to-back in booths, and within reaching distance of other patrons. I watched the hostess and servers take down their masks multiple times to speak to each other, and no one enforced customer mask wearing around the restaurant (like getting up to use the bathroom, etc).
I love this restaurant, but I can't in good conscious recommend it to anyone right now, as it didn't feel like they cared about health and safety.

The food was excellent as usual. The Mother's Day special needs help. They planned an event where they bring random mezzes to your table for 39 dollars. Great idea but having the server try and keep up with demand did not work. For instance, we sat, did not get anything for 20 minutes while others that sat after us did. They could have had runners for the food. That would have worked better. But, normal day, normal food, that place is awesome!

I had been to the restaurant pre-pandemic and the food was wonderful especially the hummus. This past experience we started with the hummus trio and it was fantastic so I was hopeful that the rest of the meal would follow suit. But, unfortunately, everything else we had (branzino, potatoes, salmon) was bland and not well seasoned nor interestingly prepared. The price, however, was much greater than my previous visit. Granted, it has been 2 years since I was previously at the restaurant, but even considering appropriate inflation, this meal did not deliver relative to its price nor past experience. That being said, our server who was a young student from Morgan State University was fantastic...so a huge shout out to her for saving the evening from being a total disappointment. I also want to add that the red sangria had none of the ingredients that was described on the menu and tasted like a cheap box wine with apples floating in it. Very disappointing, since we bought a pitcher for the table. I may try again after the pandemic lifts, but for now I think I am not going back anytime soon.
