I live a couple of blocks from Cafe Munir and have visited the restaurant many times. Heck, I've even referred people to the restaurant. I called tonight to ask if they could seat 6 for a late dinner. I even mentioned that I live in the area and wanted to walk over for dinner. Literally,the woman who answered the phone... More

I thought the last response I wrote was private so I took it down because it had private information. I have responded to you on yelp before the 17th and on Facebook since then. More

This small Lebanese restaurant is a Loyal Heights neighborhood gem. Chef/Owner Rajah Gargour grew up in Lebanon and Jordan. He serves traditional meze: Middle Eastern small plates presented family style in the middle of the table. Eating here is more like eating at the home of a great cook than a “fine dining” establishment. The atmosphere is casual, the food... More

We met with dear friends last night for a casual dinner. The Sunday night chef's choice tasting menu was so much fun! Our server was prompt, professional and efficient, but the food was the star. Two very different but brilliant treatments of beets (normally, I'm not a fan, but these were both outstanding!) were among perhaps a dozen small plates... More

Cafe Munir can easily be in the Seattle Top 50 hands down. The food is always consistently amazing and every person that goes there with us, falls in love with it. Have never had a bad dish there. The service is always on point as well. I would definitely suggest making a reservation, as it can get very crowded and... More

I went here on the advice of a colleague and was not disappointed. The employees were exceptionally friendly and helpful and the food was amazing. We started off with the bubbling lamb hummus - it amazing - don't miss it.

Café Munir has an outstanding collection of small plates and dinner items on the menu. It is one of our favorite restaurants anywhere. Delectable food, great atmosphere (relatively quiet even when full of people) and considerate, polite staff who do everything they can to help you meet any food needs including gluten-free and vegetarian if needed. Be sure to make... More

This restaurant is located north of Ballard. Easy to find on 80th. Make sure that you make a reservation if you're going for dinner on the weekend. The small plates are delicious. We had roasted cauliflower which was really good. I also enjoyed the beets as well as the Hommous bil Tahini. We also enjoyed a Lebanese full bodied red... More

We've been to Cafe Munir twice in the past year and loved it each time. Start with an inventive whiskey cocktail or whatever their pour-of-the-week is and you'll be all set for their full selection of authentic mezzes, savory pastries and kabobs. You can't go wrong with sizzling lamb hummus, labneh with beets or grilled eggplant. Throw in a couple... More

Took a Lyfft to get to this restaurant. Called before going in to find about the wait. Told to come right in. Was never told until we arrived that they had not received their shipment of lamb and beef and they had run out of lamb and beef. Had small portions including hummus, asparagus and green beans.
