Very good Lebanese food. It is generally booked on weekends so better to get booking in advance. It has a good view as well.

Made reservations to check out this restaurant as I am an avid food taster. I enjoy tasting food much more than I do actually eating it. So yes, I may not eat all of it. Sue me or join me, the choice is yours. So...the food was OUTSTANDING! Could not have asked for better, tastier Lebanon food! The service, not so much. Me and my friend checked it out on a Thursday. Figured it would be pretty packed since that’s when people go out. Nope! Not even close at to being packed and this was around 830. Probably was a total of 10 people there including us. So with that being said, why we were placed in the back by the kitchen when there was plenty of tables available is beyond me. Nonetheless, we were seated and placed orders. Started off good and then went down hill when we were asked for tea after the meal. My friend got her tea and I DID NOT get mines although we placed an order the same time. Ok, no biggie. Round 2, we stop a waiter and ask again for my tea. Sure thing, he listens and 15 minutes later no tea still. My friend excuses herself to the bathroom and for the third time asks for the tea that was initially forgotten. FINALLY, third time is the charm. I get my tea. Thought that was the end of it, but no. We ask for the check and get a reply. We wait and wait and wait at least another 10-15 minutes just to pay for the meals. Maybe they don’t like getting paid, idk. Finally we get up and go to the register and ask for the check. We ask one guy for the check, who then tells another guy, another few minutes of tag i’m not it and the check is here. Not sure what happened with that. Seemed weird. Anyhow, I guess to be fair a birthday party came AFTER we arrived, about 5-8 ladies. Maybe they were regulars, big tippers, or locals, although I hear tipping isn’t done by locals here, so I’ll let the readers decide. They had all the attention on them so maybe that’s why there was a decline in service. Anyhow, I will visit again with some of my local friends and see if I get a different experience. Maybe I can at least get seated not near the kitchen, who knows.More

I and my family have been a regular visitor of all her restaurants n Beirut and the original one in SODECO has been my favorite Visited lebanon after 15 months absence . Things have changed in lebanon with the currency devaluation covid 19 and the...August explosion But the quality of food and service at em sharif has not changed Although a limited a la crate menu as opposed to her usual Full service , you can be rest assured that you are eating quality food , do good and trust worthy they out of 5 eligible nights that restaurants were open I went there 3 nights . It’s difficult to trust eating out in Beirut nowadays But you can go there with your eyes closed . The establishment there are honest and trust worthy to the point I was way overcharged on my first night , to my surprise was called the following day by NABIL the manager to Give me a refund !!! Refund ?? Unheard of these days I am back in the USA today and I still feel em sharif is still the best Lebanese restaurant !!More
