The outside view of this restaurant doesn't do any justice to how beautiful it is in the inside. It's luxurious. But not that expensive. Regular dishes go around 10-15$. The food was delicious. I had the variety plate (I don't remember the name, something like...More

Really delicious Lebanese, loads of good veg options. Only issue is the price is quite high (I lived in the Middle East, so am a bit surprised to pay this much for Arabic food). We enjoyed this meal with Arab friends, who know and also...More

Actually, I think you need to call ahead and check. We were dining with someone who was vegan, and someone who needed gluten free. Vegan was no problem, but gluten free was more difficult, because some of the sauces and... More

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.
