Pentagon Row Lebanese Taverna is one of my favorite restaurants. The ambience is relaxing and beautiful, the food is always outstanding, and the service is wonderful. The tables are spaced out nicely so you won't be too close to anyone if you choose to dine in!
Using the app, we picked outdoor seating, unfortunately the outdoor area was closed. The host instead opened up a small section of the glass door, and placed out table outside to accommodate the dog we had with us. They went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and enjoyed our visit. Food was outstanding as usual. Highly recommend.
Great food and service as always!
Food was good as always, service was slipshod, and the biggest problem was I reserved outdoor seating but because they ran out of propane there was no outdoor seating offered. They should have emailed to let me know and I would have cancelled and rebooked elsewhere.
Did not actually go to this location - though I imagine the experience is the same - we went to the one in Arlington and it is just sooooo delicious. I haven't lived in the area for 20 years and just had to come back when I was visiting last week. We had the sampler of hummus, taziki, beef with pomegranate shawarma, falefals and even more and everything was fresh, presentation beautiful and so tasty - definitely glad that I visited and look forward to my next trip to DC because I'm going back!
Love dining here. Good food, good service. Plan to dine there again.
A lovely place to celebrate a loved ones retirement.
Distance between tables was good. Great food as always.
Limited menu because of COVID-19. Good food, clean & great service. Will definitely go there again. Good value for the money. Their bread and humus are the best!!!
Service was horrible !
The service was incredibly slow and inattentive. Food was delicious as always!
Great food and I appreciated the ability to eat outside.
Asked twice and waited 30 minutes for a basket of bread, food itself is good but dressing for chicken shawarma salad wasn’t very good . Very slow and bad service at this location but convenient location afterwork. No military discount was disappointing.
This was my first excursion out sine February. It was perfect. I felt safe, the staff was wonderful and the food excellent as always.
Love their food! Outside seating was great as well.
Food and service were excellent and this remains one of our favorite restaurants in the DC Metro area!
They have a nice outdoor dining area set up. Waiter was very friendly and attentive. Food was very good. Overall a very pleasant experience. We recommend!
Excellent food under the pergola-patio at Pentagon Row. Staff was properly masked but did not appear to use any special protocols for removing plates from the table. Menus were not disposable—normal plastic covered menus, no evidence that they were sanitized between uses. Service was lackluster and intermittent at best. Patio was not crowded. Gentle breeze made it quite pleasant.
Quality of both the food and service was outstanding! Will definitely be returning in the near future.
Love this restaurant and food was absolutely AMAZING. Waiters were great and very friendly. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to some great dishes.
Really nice, safe, socially distanced Thursday night dinner! Very conscientious staff who still provided great service and food.
Awesome fresh Mediterranean food with great service. Food is authentic, very courteous service, and prices reasonable. Highly recommended.
Outstanding service, small problem with our food and the service and management went out of their way to fix it and make sure our experience was the best!! I really appreciated it
A convenient stop on the way to drop passengers at DCA. Food and service were excellent. Very well suited for my Son's food allergies and his girlfriend's vegan-ish diet.
Food was good. We at first were put at a table that was in front of a window with the sun coming in. We asked to be moved after five minutes as it was uncomfortable and they accommodated us.
Excellent Valentine’s Day menu which came with FOUR courses. The first two were small plates followed by entree then dessert—by the time the entree arrived we were already nearly full which made for excellent leftovers. Service staff was attentive and professional. I am not surprised by my experience at LT because it has been the same level of quality over the many years I have been eating there.
One of our family’s go to favorites whether it’s a special occasion or a Tuesday night.
Great selection and great appetizer platter!
Excellent menu but wine choices by the glass were poor. Restaurant has become very noisy.
I absolutely love this place. Each time better than the next. We were five people on this evening and each of us loved it
I really needed a great Lebanese Taverna visit. Love the tapas, and needed the garlic infusion! We sat at the bar and it was good. It is definitely a great flavor profile and the variety of tapas is great. Will go back to Lebanese Taverna again.
We were seated right away at a table by the window that was very nice. Our server was very good and made wine and food recommendations for us. We went with friends and never felt rushed so that was very nice. This is a good place to meet friends, order drinks, appetizers, food and have a very relaxed and nice evening out. All of us enjoyed our wine, appetizers, and entrees. The parking is easy also which I like. Just park underneath Pentagon Row and it is just a few dollars for the night. Good food, good atmosphere, and easy parking.
We enjoyed our meal, except that the baba ghanoush was very salty.
The food wasn't up to par on this visit. Good but not a wow like the previous visit.
Lebanese Taverna was our go to favorite for 20+ years, but Friday night was blah. Service was slow/bad, drinks were not good, food just was not what it used to be. Food was blah.
Wonderful service and terrific food! And not to noisy like many others -just the right atmosphere to catch up with friends over wine and delicious small bites.
Great spot for couple or family gathering. Superb service.
One of my favorite restaurants in Northern Virginia. I moved away in 2017 and was back for a visit with one criteria, that we go to Lebanese Taverna for dinner. Everyone agreed that the experience was all that I'd promised.
I honestly don't think there's a better place to eat in the DC area!!
