I'd eaten at Lebanese Taverna restaurants before so when I saw them listed as an approved caterer for our venue, they were the first group I contacted. When my fiance and I went for a tasting at the Lebanese Taverna bakery we knew this was it. They gave us a ton of food to try and it was all amazing and on top of that sent us home with a lot of delicious baklava. Toni was great through the entire process and brought on Aubrey for the venue walk-through and day-of coordinating. The food was amazing, everything looked great and Aubrey and Toni made sure everything went smoothly the day of and were so patient when we had some technical difficulties getting the final payment to them! These guys were all truly wonderful and our big day would not have been the perfect day it was without them. I would highly recommend them!

We had our rehearsal dinner at the Pentagon Row Lebanese Taverna and it was a real delight. The food was delicious and there was something for everyone in our large and diverse group (including children, older people, international visitors and picky eaters). Everyone loved the food and there were lots of compliments from our out-of-town guests who hadn't eaten there before (and from one of our wedding party who had her own rehearsal dinner there ten years earlier!). Very reasonably priced for what you get and we couldn't believe how much food there was! Fortunately we had some teenage boy guests there to take home the leftovers. Although we were in the main restaurant space we felt like we had a sense of privacy and didn't feel at all rushed or hurried, it was very relaxed. Alex from the Group & Private Dining team was extremely helpful in tailoring our menu and sorting out all the details (at quite late notice - we had left this to the last minute to organize) and all the staff on the night were great. Overall it was a lovely experience and we were so happy with our choice. Will definitely be returning!

Catering by LT was delicious and I highly recommend them. They are very reasonable priced, worked smoothly with both Select Rentals and our wedding planner and the food was delicious. Shawna was great to work with and was very accommodating to a few guests with very unique food requirements. They were wonderful. Everyone kept telling us they appreciate good interesting food instead of boring dry chicken!

I'm a wedding planner, and Catering by LT catered one of my recent weddings. They were wonderful! Working with Shawna was easy from start to finish, she was beyond helpful, and the food! Wow. So delicious. The guests loved it too! I can't wait to have another wedding with Shawna and the Catering by LT team.

The LT rep we worked with was helpful, generous, flexible, and the perfect mix of personable and professional. Everything came together wonderfully for our reception -- we got many compliments on the food and the space was decorated just as I had hoped. The other LT reception staff were very kind and helpful.

Ours was not a wedding -- but we were exceptionally pleased with the job that Catering by LT did for a birthday party at our home for 50 people. First, the food was amazing – everyone loved it! There was something all of our guests could enjoy, including vegetarians and vegans, picky eaters who don’t like anything spicy or unusual, and people with allergies to nuts, eggs and gluten. Second, staff members Oscar and Silvia were incredibly professional, efficient, warm and welcoming. They arrived right on time, set everything up beautifully, made sure everyone got what they wanted to eat and drink, cleared away plates and cups, refilled serving platters, and left the place spotless at the end. They were just the right combination of being available and being unobtrusive. And just lovely people to deal with. Finally, Krystyn in the sales office made everything quick and easy. She offered great suggestions, responded to all our requests in a timely manner, and ensured that all the details were taken care of. We loved using Catering by LT and would definitely hire them again!

Shawna Bates was our point of contact with LT and she was absolutely amazing. She re-worked our proposal about 17x for all of our little adjustments without ever making us feel bad about the requests, and even provided a free hor d'ourve for our cocktail hour. She also helped us figure out how to cut corners here and there to bring the price within our budget, from hunting down very nice looking compostable disposable tableware items, to giving us tips on where/when we could buy things cheaper on-line than rent them. She was a font of useful information about how to appropriately time out the events of our wedding day, and made sure that we ate on the night of the event. She was an absolutely lovely person. Oh yes, and the food? More than 10 guests told us it was the best food that they had ever had at a wedding. We ended up deciding to have the salmon because of the rave reviews online, but otherwise we had a buffet that was a vegetarian dream: unbelievably tasty rice with lentils, eggplant, salad, you name it. All the catering staff were professional and kind - they even hunted down safety pins for us when I had a dress malfunction! I would recommend their service to anyone.

Oh my God, what a phenomenal experience. Toni was incredibly responsive, answering every silly question I had and helping me make decisions. We were a little panicked when the crew arrived, but they immediately started putting everything together and making decisions. They were flexible with my requests and had a lot of good ideas. We loved that because they took care of the food/drink setup, serving, plate-clearing and tidying, we were able to focus on our wedding and our guests. Guests raved about the food, and the bar was well tended. Truly worth every single penny we spent. Thank you all so much!!

WOW! Let me start off by saying, I have worked in restaurants and have a small personal chef business so I know what goes into an event. Shawna met with me and my now husband to set up a tasting, discuss different options, and was extremely positive and professional. I had some very specific asks (because I love food so much) and they were met with a smile and her team doing whatever they could to accommodate. We are a couple on a budget and Shawna was able to make some suggestions to help meet us where we were. The food was excellent and LT has some great dishes for meat eaters (whole lamb and shrimp kabobs) and vegetarians (stuffed vegetables and m'saka). My only regret is that I missed the hummus bar because I was taking pictures! The space where we were married was an old barn with one sink and they made magic happen there. I forgot an ingredient for one of our signature cocktails and without one second hesitation, she turned around and whipped up a replacement. Her staff were extremely professional and left the space spotless. I cannot recommend catering by LT enough to any couple looking for an outstanding experience.

Lebanese Taverna catered our wedding in September and we can’t say enough about how great the experience was from start to finish. The restaurant was already a family favorite, and after a tasting (which they set up on a holiday weekend when we were in town) we were convinced they were the right choice for us. The team there, particularly Toni, who was our point of contact, were incredibly responsive, diligent, thoughtful and patient throughout the planning process. We took advantage of their full-service options, and they helped us think through everything from where to set up a bar to how many portions of various dishes to get for our buffet-style meal. Our (many!) questions were answered quickly and thoughtfully, both by email and through phone calls that they were happy to set up throughout the planning process. We were able to have an in-person consultation which was extremely helpful. For delivery, set-up and pick up their team was on time to the minute, and were a pleasure to work with. The table settings and other setup was precisely what we’d envisioned and discussed. And the food itself was fabulous. We were told my more than one guest that it was the best food they’d ever had at a wedding, and we agree! It was beautifully displayed and absolutely delicious. We felt very lucky to work with LT and recommend them very enthusiastically!

The food was delicious, and both Erica and Toni helped me with a plan for day-of coordination. I grew up going to LT Market and was very excited to have Lebanese food at our wedding. Thanks to the great staff!
