My husband and I dined at Open Sesame on a Friday night. Reservations seem essential as this place gets busy. It is not a huge space. There is covered outdoor seating with a heater and a small bar area. The restaurant gets packed after 8 p.m., making it difficult to maneuver and the tables are situated close together. The food was fantastic. Everyone enjoyed their dishes. The standouts were the combo plate (filet mignon, shrimp, and lamb), Lebanese pizza, Kafka kabob, and chicken tawook. The wine list is small and a bit pricey for wine by the glass. The chocolate lava cake was delicious and decadent. Overall, a great dining experience.

For years this location was a long standing Chinese restaurant and then became Hatfields. When it changed hands again we explored the new place and to my extreme delight it has proved beyond wonderful. The restaurant is compact inside but still features a wrap around patio which offers the opportunity for dinner al fresco. Drinks are generously poured and the food - oh the food! Perhaps the best hummus ever, and garlic sauce that dreams are made of. Last night I ordered Ali's special, and had a hard time pacing myself through the delicious plate. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. You will love it, and you'll be back.

This place is authentic! Being Lebanese I don't frequent Lebanese restaurants because it's rare to find one that is authentic and takes pride in their food like my mom or I would make at home. Well, Open Sesame is the rare place that I go quiet frequently! It's an amazing place! I love the falafel and the soup.
