Bypassing the brunch crowd elsewhere, we ducked in around 1:30 to have a quiet atmosphere, delicious meal with excellent service. We all felt we had a great selection to choose from, healthy options as well as new and unusual dishes. My favorites were the warm puffy small pita breads - best ever! - spicy hummus, pumpkin kibbeh, and chicken shawarma... More

This is a place for a group of people to enjoy dining. It's not a cozy atmosphere, especially if diners come in with kids. But the menu is varied, the appetizers exotic and great for sharing - hence a group. Not fond of the European style bathrooms, but at least it gives an idea of why foreigners always like our...

Attended a wedding reception at Lebanese Taverna in Baltimore on a Saturday evening. They did a fantastic job of getting their dishes out and served tasty, elegant cuisine.

While staying at the Baltimore Marriott for a conference, we wandered to the Lebanese Taverna and found a gem. This is not a spicy set of recommendations but a food set which was savory, interesting, beautifully presented and thoroughly enjoyable. We had a delightful server who was attentive and conversant about the local Lebanese scene. All four of us agreed... More

We stopped in for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. We decided to sample numerous appetizers instead of ordering individual meals. We sampled chicken samosas, grape leaves, arnabeet, kafta harra, and Shawarma hommus. Everything was delicious, including the bread! The service was great, and we were able to space everything out a bit.

We were a large group of about 70, and we occupied about half the restaurant. The food had been pre-selected by our hosts and was served family style. Some in our group were unfamiliar with eastern Mediterranean food and weren't completely comfortable with this arrangement at first, but as soon as they began tasting the dishes as they were served...

Enjoyed the taverna platter for 2. Great lunch. Loved the beer selection from Sierra Nevada. Good service. Two TVs at the bar so you can watch whatever you like. All in all a perfect lunch

I came here with my husband on a Friday night. Normally, they are super busy, but perhaps the cooler and windier evening kept people in. It is best to make reservations anyways! We started our meal with the Hummus Trio and an order of Falafel. They both were super delicious! The fresh warm bread was perfect to dip in the... More

Awesome authentic flavors and textures. Not some botched up bastardized version of the holy grail of Lebanese food.. Hummus, this was the real deal... simple authentic ingredients without some Westernized adaptations additions or omissions. I partook in the shawarma which was spot on as well. Salads were fresh and tasty. Dressings crisp and tangy. The restroom facilities were novel so... More
