However, I had redeemed 2000 points and Open Table had sent me a Dining Reward. I made a reservation but I did NOT receive a credit. In the past, 2000 points equaled $20. Furthermore, I received the following note: "This reservation isn't eligible for you to collect points." I spent $265; I got neither the Dining Rewards nor points. That is not a great deal. Nevertheless, we will return to the Lebanese Taverna.

Wile the food was fine the service and attitude of the server was offensive. Nothing he said but actions speak louder than words. While this reservation was under my husband’s name as his wife I was there with a female friend. I was disappointed and not sure I will be back.

They reliably always perform and can be counted on for a good meal. My entree was a bit over cooked but everyone else said was great. The ambience was off some rather than other times. Some of the lights were on bright and then some of the background lights were not even on. Not sure why this was but it was noticeable to all of us at the table.

The service was great - I have a few food sensitivities, and the server made sure the kitchen could accommodate my needs. The food was great, and the value was as well. Lots of pita brought at the beginning before we received our dinners, and wonderful olive oil with za'atar for dipping. Not rushed at all. A very enjoyable evening.

Baklava however was a pinkie finger size roll-up. No grape leaves tonight, but other sides well prepared and tasty. The bread served, like a warm, fresh baked, puffy peta, the hi light of the meal. Service, was ok. Had to ask 2-3 times for water, drinks, but bread guy, on the spot. I’ll be back.

However, the service made our experience less than desired. Bottom line - service was not what was expected. It started with delivering our bottled beer with caps intact and walking away. Throughout the meal we had to flag our server (or any of the waitstaff) for basics - appetizer plates, additional naan, table water, etc. When we ordered more drinks, they never arrived. All night the service was non existent. Too bad as we will think twice before another visit..

Consistency among all locations is stellar….and we’ve been to them all! The food was excellent, as usual and kabobs were made as requested. The.Mezza selection is extensive with the majority being gluten free which is important to my wife. Be warned, that you will need to bring food home since there are so many tempting items to try.

We spent entirely too much money to receive such poor service. The food was just ok. I would not recommend. There are better restaurants in DC. Look further.

Had the tzatziki, garlic hummus and baba ganoush, all of which were delicious. The shrimp arak was good, but not as good as the other three dishes. Something re the sauce/seasonings was off to us, and we both have had lots of Middle Eastern food over the past few decades.

Lovely fresh-baked puffy breads which are too delicious!! We had the taverna platter and the chef's platter which are great for people who can't decide or who are not familiar with Lebanese food. You probably need one platter for each hungry person.
