My first experience with Lebanese food was here. I'm not from around the D.C area so it was refreshing to find this place. My main dish was the lamb stew. The meat was really tender and the stew itself was just the right temperature. Although,...More

Everything was extremely fresh and superbly spiced. Service was courteous and competent and ambiance was warm...More

Traveling with a friend who is vegetarian and has extreme food allergies can make dining out difficult. I don't have those issues, so I'm less aware of it on my own. Both my friend and I left satisfied. I ordered the spanakopita appetizer, and chicken...More

Actually, I think you need to call ahead and check. We were dining with someone who was vegan, and someone who needed gluten free. Vegan was no problem, but gluten free was more difficult, because some of the sauces and... More

Come see our new look with a contemporary feel in a refined setting with subtle touches of a Lebanese home. We've added seats to the bar and a new lounge too! Still great for groups of all sizes and the private room now seats 56 people. Located in walking distance from the Marriott Wardman Park and Omni Shoreham Hotels and directly across the street from the Woodley Park Metro station, our DC location is ideal for corporate and social events. Validated self-parking is also available in the garage directly behind the restaurant. The Cedar Room accommodates up to 60 people for a private seated event and 40 people for a standing reception. For smaller affairs, the room can be offered as a semi privately as well. The main dining room is also available for larger parties.
