My family decided to have an early dinner and we weren't disappointed. Although the waitress took a little warning up, the food was great and my 14 year old son loved the beef/lamb tavern special. I would definitely go back if we had more time.

My wife and I were in DC for the week visiting all of the historical sights of our great country. We decided to eat at the Lebanese Taverna Restaurant. We have never had Lebanese food before and had a wonderful waiter in Mohamed H. We started off with “Camel” wings which really are chicken wings cooked in garlic, lemon, and... More

The hummus platter was excellent. The bread was fresh from the oven. We had the shawarma plate and and the mixed kabab plate. Very good service. The food was a bit bland for my taste but nothing a side of harissa could not fix

Staying in DC for a conference at the nearby Omni Hotel. This was a great place to get delicious, healthy, affordable Middle Eastern food. Since we went on a warm spring day, we got to sit outside and enjoy the outdoor seating.

Four of us went for dinner. Our server Victor was excellent. I eat GF and he said that's OK, he would take care of me and he did. While my friends had the pita bread, Victor brought me rice crackers and a generous assortment of raw veggies for my hummus. Everything we tried was delicious. Four of us ordered 8... More

We ate twice in this family run business. The food was delicious: full of that middle eastern flavour. The service was friendly (they remembered us) and tip top! Of the places around Woodley Park this was the best,

My brother wanted to celebrate his special occasion here. There were 11 of us all Lebanese. We didn't know what to expect, but my brother guaranteed us we would love it. The varied menu was outstanding. So many choices! A few of us went with the sampler platter. Amazing, my sister had Pumpkin kibbee. Never heard of that before but... More

After visiting the zoo, we were looking for a nearby restaurant before heading back to our hotel. The Lebanese Taverna had good reviews, so we thought we'd give it a try. Oh my gosh...the complimentary hot pita bread was so delicious. We were given 5 large pieces and the 4 of us quickly devoured it. The complimentary olive oil to... More

Description
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.
