Middle Eastern
Fond memories of food in Syria, Lebanon and Persia are transplanted to the Seattle of today. Enjoy man'aeesh and other traditional street foods from our walk-up window menu, a private event in our luxurious lounge, or a relaxed, elegant meal in our well-appointed dining room.

Food is an essential part of all family and social interactions in the Middle East where people grow up with intense flavors, colorful, vibrant foods fresh from the marketplace, prepared simply and with a lot of passion. Aromatic herbs fill the streets and a spirit of warmth and generosity exudes welcome at any table.

Here at Mamnoon, we share these strengths brought with us from Lebanon and Syria to the new world of Seattle – where modern curiosity, compassion, progressive values and tolerance are paving the way for harmonious integration and celebration of cultures and flavors.

What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.5

Mamnoon in Capitol Hill makes the best Mediterranean food in Seattle, and also works for just about any dining situation.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

My third time to Mamnoon and always a delight. I went with a date this past Saturday afternoon for the happy hour and the food was wonderful and our waiter only heightened the experience by being personable, making some great suggestions, and checking on us just enough and not too much. The whole bill was under $70 to which I added a $20 tip - that's how good the service was, especially amidst what seems like a trend away from good, full-service.

All the food was solid, hummus was the only real stand out. My problem with the meal was how rushed everything felt. Ordered cocktails and ordered small plates and entrees half way through our cocktails. Small plates arrived while still drinking out cocktails and the spacing between small plates and entrees was not nearly long enough. Decent meal but hate being rushed

Our drinks took a while to arrive but they were delicious when they finally did. Our server offered apologies for food coming out a few minutes before cocktails but that was it. Would've been nice to have some type of accommodation for waiting but it's not a deathblow to the meal at all. Which was quite delicious, although sat heavier in my stomach that I would have thought.

After many unsuccessful attempts to secure a reservation on a weekend, I was finally able to get a reservation mid-week. And, boy, I can't believe I waited so long to make it happen. This is currently the best dining experience in Seattle. The decor is somehow both eclectic and elegant at the same time. It's comfortable and good for groups, yet not too loud. But most important, let's talk about the food. It is AMAZING. I suspect there are some people who might be inclined to skip this restaurant because they don't like middle eastern cuisine -- but that's only because they haven't tried this place. The food is simply perfect. If you haven't gone yet -- GO!! Make a reservation RIGHT NOW! You will not regret it.

The service was excellent. We did the sampler menu. Great value for the variety. Their custom drinks were complex and tasty. (Old Beirut was my favorite) The physical space could use a little refreshing but it’s easily overlooked because the service and food is so amazing. Thank you for a great evening!

One of the best places I have been for brunch in Seattle. Everything we had was tasty, the ambiance was relaxing and comfortable. We especially appreciated that there were lots of vegetarian options on the menu - a rare occurrence around here. The service was a little slow but it was actually very nice because we were just sitting and chatting and enjoying ourselves - it was nice to not feel pressured to get in and out as quickly as possible. I highly recommend the rose pancakes and also the breakfast plate!

Food was good. But used to be excellent . The Falafel was very very salty and pita bread was very doughy in texture. Unpleasant to eat, seems food has taken a dip. Some dishes missing the correct flavor profile associated with Lebanese cuisine they were off the mark. But I question why they don't serve theb pita bread straight from the oven. It looked delicious, fluffy and fresh coming out of oven but then it sits in a container before being served. Positive the dolmas and kibba were both excellent.. but ill give them another chance to improve as Lebanese cuisine is still one of my favorites..

Had a great dinner at Mamnoon Sunday night with friends. Our waiter recomended ordering 2 entrees and 5 meze’s for our party of 4. We ordered 3 meze’s and 2 entrees and were full by the time we got our entrees. The cauliflower, beets and eggplant with meat were outstanding. Entree’s were a bit salty for our tastes but on the whole, an excellent dinner!!!
