I met a friend here for lunch mid-week. It was pouring rain and the place was virtually empty at the peak of the lunch hour - despite its location. The maitre d' was absolutely surly when he met me at the door and showed me...More

Had not been here in a few years. As good as we remember. Excellent appetizers and soups. Flatbread options are wonderful. Bread is outstanding. Service is somewhat inattentive but it was a busy Saturday noon time.

The irony is, this was possibly the friendliest and most attentive service I have ever experienced - but what can I tell you, the food was terrible. We were eight people and ordered a range of things from soup to fish to meat and dessert....More

The flavorless food was greasy, slapped onto the plates, without form and void. The best bit? The waiter had greasy food marks all over his jacket; it was really disgusting. It's not even worth saying more. Dupont Circle has some very good and reliable restaurants;...More

Excellent food. Reasonable prices. On a nice day, a table outside under the umbrellas is a great way to spend the lunch hour. Dressy enough for a business lunch but priced to also be somewhere to meet friends. We've done dinner here and at their...More

Description
The word "Levante" is derived from "Levantine" which describes the eastern Mediterranean coastal region that today includes: Turkey, Greece and extends into Lebanon and Israel. The era of the Ottoman Empire and Alexander the Great, past rulers of the Levante region, is now history, but the culinary and cultural traditions live on.The tastes and flavors of that golden age come alive at Levante's. All dishes are made in the Levante tradition using only fresh ingredients. For centuries, these qualities have allowed people of the Mediterranean to eat well and live long healthy lives. Today at Levante's diners can enjoy the variety, freshness and the natural health benefits of this legendary cuisine. Levante's is the first restaurant group to offer eastern Mediterranean cuisine in a casual dining environment. Natural stone and light wood interiors envelope guests. Open kitchens and wood-fired ovens produce charcoal - grilled meats and vegetables, which are prepared in full view of diners.
