Lisa always gives great service she makes the experience fun and enjoyable. Sam the manager is also very funny and always checks on guest. Just such a great experience overall!

Zatar is a hidden gem in Deep Ellum! Some of the most delicious and flavorful food I've ever had and seriously incredible service. Will definitely be back for soon! Absolute must order: cheese cigars.

We arrived and table was ready immediately. It was SO HOT that we requested an inside table instead of outside that we originally requested. We got lucky and we waited less than 5 minutes for indoor seating. The service was excellent and the staff were very friendly! The food was superb!!! Loved everything!

The bar service was the worst. Only nine customers in the restaurant and our appetizers arrived before three drinks. Same experience on second round. The waiter was very friendly but would disappear for long periods of time. I had to take check up to the bar to try to pay for the meal and get the hell out of there. I wished the people coming in the door good luck as we left.
I’ll try the Lebanese restaurant in Frisco next

I was already been to Zatar, and every time I went there I had always a great time. The food is amazing, the service is very good and the place is so nice! It was my birthday and they surprised me with a dessert with candle, it’s been incredibly sweet of them! Definitely recommend it!

We went to Zatar for dinner on Valentine’s Day. They had a pre-fixe 3 course dinner menu with choice of 3 shared appetisers, one entree each and choice of one shared dessert.
Appetisers:
Cheese cigars were delicious
Hummus was below average especially for a Mediterranean restaurant, being only slightly better than a store brand. The pita bread was pretty disappointing and didn’t taste like it had been frehsly made
Falafel basket- the falafel had the right amount of crunch to it but was a bit salty
Entree:
Grilled chicken with rice- the chicken was tender and delicious, however the rice was pretty terrible and seemed like it had been microwaved
Rosemary lamb chops - were okay nothing to write home about
Dessert:
Baklava and icecream- the baklava was standard but the icecream was half melted by the time the dish was served
Service- service was surprisingly terrible. It wasn’t the employees fault though, it seemed like they were understaffed that night; the person seating excused himself twice before we were seated, once to take a phone call and once to actually clear another table which you would think they’d have someone else do. The server seemed like he was always in a tearing hurry ( he probably was, the poor man was serving almost all the tables in our section) and would start to walk away even before we finished our sentences. Overall this was an underwhelming experience. Then again, it might be a one off, since it was a busy night (Valentine’s)

We had a group of 11 for a birthday dinner. Service was good, food was great. Only negative feedback I have is the music was SO loud starting at 8pm. They had a DJ which music was great however it was so very loud for dinner time. I can see it being that crunk starting at 10pm or later but club level sound was more bothersome than fun while trying to eat and socialize with friends.

For some strange reason, I got an email I didn’t attend . I did however attend and despite the email, the restaurant was great.
Probably the best humus I’ve tried. My kids even liked it and they are picky eaters.
I had the sharmwa wrap and my wife had the Cafta Tahini or something like that .. both great .
The chocolate cake was a winner too

The food was really good, especially the upside down Lamb pilaf, Brussel sprouts and Hummus. The patio area had music and hookah. The location is also great. Would definitely recommend this place to friends and family!

Great atmosphere in a good location, lot's going on in Depp Ellum so it's in a good spot. The service is not particularly good, average at best. The food is not good. Very bland, no flavor at all. Not sure what they are shooting for but they served very poor Lebanese or Mediterranean food. The humus and babbaganoush were very, very bland except for the beet humus which was terrible. The falafel was ok as were the dholmas but the chicken shawarma and lamb chops were overcooked and no flavor at all. The Mezza for 4 did not come with pita bread. This place probably won't be around too much longer I suspect, unless they get a new chef and menu.

The atmosphere was nice and our server was very friendly. However, there were multiple organizational issues- we were practically the only ones in the restaurant and were told that there was plenty of a certain lamb dish but after we placed the orders, they were one short for the table. Drinks were delayed, water was delayed at being refilled, and the timing of the courses was off. We waited a while for our appetizers (close to 30 min), which came out in shifts. We had barely started eating them and not even 10 min later, the main course was being served! Dessert was timed a little better but what took the longest were the checks. When we arrived, I mentioned to the server that we would be separate check and she assured me that she was taking “notes to avoid confusion at the end.” Well, it took well over 20 min to get the checks and some were still wrong!

We took advantage of the restaurant week fixed price meal. The hummus appetizer was nice, especially the beet hummus. The entrees were great - my wife had lamb and rice. The lamb was flavorful and "fall-off-the-bone" tender. My flatbread was very good, although not especially noteworthy. Pistachio ice cream with the chocolate bunt cake was-wow. The Baklava was a tad dry for my taste but great with the vanilla ice cream.

My husband and I went to happy hour at 5:30pm before watching a show at Fair Park. We ordered 4-5 appetizers and two glasses of wine each, and our total was $40! The food was amazing.

Wait staff was very attentive. The owner even came by to ask us about our experience and was eager for feedback. We shared two appetizer platters which were both delicious. The cocktails were wonderful and had unique presentation. Overall, a very solid experience for our first visit.

Made a reservation last Sunday evening for 4 and was a bit disappointed in the service. Reservation was made for indoors, however when we saw the nice outside seating area we asked if we could sit there and were told no, though most tables were open outside at that time. After placing a drink and appetizer order, there were no less than 5 servers that came by to see if we had been helped, which was appreciated but it was clear they noticed how slow things were moving and also made it seem very disorganized. Food order took a VERY long time to arrive, and when it arrived was average at best. Had high hopes for this place but was overall disappointed.

So nice to see such a quality and authentic Lebanese option for the Dallas food scene, if you have never visited Lebanon, after the beautiful people, the food is world class... Now Deep Ellum/Dallas can have a wonderful taste of it! Excellent food and drink menu, service and experience!

Dinner was great. Food was delish and our server was really great and attentive.
Only ding is that i had a reservation for the dinning area indoors, but was placed in the smoking section of the restaurant. not really comfortable eating around smoking hookahs.

Great meal, fun environment. I love Mediterranean cuisine, and Lebanese is amazing. Our waiter was pretty obviously on his first or second day, but that's not normal for this place. I'll be a return customer.
