    Great middle eastern food. The chicken liver with pomegranate molasses is fantastic, so is their French fries and duck Shawerma. Try their cheese kinafeh for desert.

    They have amazing ambience and drinks! Must order the duck shawarma. Brussels sprouts are delicious. It is the best Lebanese food in the city period!

    "Labne and eggplant small plates are well worth an order, as is the super tender and assertively spiced mekanek lamb sausages.

    Thanks everyone for the tips! I tried the Brussel Sprouts, Hommus with Pita bread, Fries, Candy Bar for dessert and From Beiruit with Passion cocktail! LOVED EVERYTHING! Great Spot!

    Fantastic Mediterranean tapas. The Brussels sprouts and French fries are truly the best I've ever had. Pita bread and chicken kabob are also great.

    Duck shawarma for the win. All the mezes were delicious. Make a reservation if you want to seat at a table.

    Very interesting. Nice ambiance and friendly service. A taste of the Middle East with a few unexpected twists in flavor. Try it and see for yourself.

    The mini falafel, shwarma cones, and hommus are great! Cute date spot for cocktails & sharing plates. Upstairs is too stuffy though. Drink/eat downstairs for 1/2 the price.

    The Lebanese and Mediterranean flavors at ilili are unique and funky with dishes like shawarma with fig puree. The bi-level restaurant also doubles as a lounge after dark.

    The Brussels sprouts were out of this world. We also had the potatoes, tuna, feta cheese and falafel. One of my favorite meals in the city.

    One of the few delicious Lebanese food places in Manhattan, Tabboule, Hummus, Shish Taouk and more on the menu. Set in a modern atmosphere with dark lighting, but slightly overpriced.

    Labne and Phoenician fries!! You won't want to share them. Truly everything is good here. Come for lunch.

    Delicious Mediterranean food. Hommus and baba ghanoush, warak enab, falafel, batata harra, chicken liver and the mixed grill was very good as well.

    Soooo good. I still prefer Balade for Lebanese but both are amazing. Big fan of the Brussels here.

    Everything on the menu is good (wasn't a fan of the Spinach dish and the Lebanese ice cream). Brussels sprouts and lamb are a must!

    Mezas are amazing. Much better to order a bunch of the small dishes than sharing the mains. And always ask for more bread after you eat it all

    Great Brussels sprouts, everything else was alright but not mind blowing. Cool square falafel though

    The mezzes (appetizers) are stronger than the entree dishes here. Stick with the Kibbe Naye Beirutieh (steak tartare) and Arnabeet Mekle (pan-fried cauliflower).
  • Pedro Henrique d.
    Mixed grill - definitely the best arabic food that I've ever eaten with good value for money. Beautiful place as well and good service.

    Service was excellent, the food was terrific. It's pricey and very uber trendy... the place looks great, though. Eat in the lounge to hack the line... just as nice, if not better than tables.

    They serve Lebanese cuisine. Get their Phoenician fries & shrimp hummus as appetizers. Get their shawarma or chicken taouk.

    If ur craving a manouche this is the place to come for brunch. At $15 it's a bit prohibitive. But if ur craving... Also, I wish they'd open at 11am rather than 12 for brunch.

    The eggplant is far better than the Brussels sprouts. Lamb hummus, duck schwarma are obvious winners

    Before you fill up on the warm, freshly baked pita, remember to try the fries (w/ garlic whip), hummus, and the mixed grill plate.
