The shawarma have a great taste hear! I would highly recommend the chefs platter as an appetizer (or even a meal). I have noticed the some of the foods quality of taste has declined over the last year. I hope management can correct this before it becomes permanent.

The food here was good, if not exactly as-good-as-in-Lebanon, but no complaints really. At around $30 a head for mixed starters (baba ganoush, hummus trio and pumpkin kibbeh) with freshly baked bread and three salads (fattoush, chicken schwarma and falafel) plus drinks, including wine ($40 for that person), it was good value, too. The interior was slightly chilly and service ranged from attentive to inflexible and indifferent depending on who was serving.

Not an extremely fancy place, just a simple restaurant with a welcoming and cozy atmosphere. Service is great, the food is so delicious - everything from snacks to lemonades tastes fantastic, and you'll wish you had more stomach space. You could order anything off the menu and it would be fantastic - I suggest getting dishes to share, as that's the only way to really taste all the place has to offer.

Authentic Lebanese food and wine, especially the lamb dishes. Hard to believe that this is a chain restaurant. The Lebanese red wines by the glass are also very good. Great value and serve. Highly recommend.

We’ve been going to the Lebanese Taverna ever since Tony and Mary Abi-Najm took over a tiny Greek pizza and giros shop and eventually turned it in to the regional icon that it is today. Although the original family members have grown up and moved on to other phases of the family restaurant business, the original Taverna in Westover remains the best place in the Metro area for authentic Lebanese Cuisine. Plus Westover is an old fashion happening place with current upbeats.
