Al Wadi Boston
Al Wadi Boston is a Lebanese restaurant providing the West Roxbury area a unique ethnic food experience.
Dinner at Al Wadi Boston can be a thoroughly enjoyable feast with the Mezza variety vegetarian and meat options that both include an amazing array of house specialties and chef selected favorites. Dinner offerings include beef and lamb kebabs, eggplant moussaka and a vegetarian platter. A special delicacy is the pumpkin kibbeh which features two pumpkin puree layers along with spinach, chick peas and onions. Be sure to save room for one of the Al Wadi Boston special desserts including the knefe with its sweet cheese, semolina crust and syrup made from rose water.
Food is excellent!! Music was a little loud. Service was okay. But all made up for by the delicious food!!
A nice restaurant, though I'm no expert on Lebanese cuisine. Sadly not very many people for a Friday night but we enjoyed it.
Since being introduced to Al Wadi about a year ago this has become one of my favorite restaurants. I love mideastern food and they have a wide variety of delicious menu items. If you don't know what to order I recommend starting with the Al Wadi sampler for an introduction. We usually start there and then share a few main dishes. I recommend going with a few others so you can sample and share as the dishes are fairly large for one person. All the chicken, beef and lamb dishes as well as vegetarian are great.
Outstanding service and food. my wife and I have been coming here for our anniversary for the past six years.
There for Valentine’s Day with my wife. The food was good and the prices were fair. After eating we waited for 40 minutes to pay our check though. The only saving grace was that there was live entertainment so at least we weren’t bored while we waited
They really went all out for Valentine's day. Belly dancer and a Sax/clarinet musician. It was so romantic and the specials were excellent.
One of the nicest dinners I've had in a while! This is a lovely restaurant right off the VFW Parkway. They take reservations and also have a parking lot, which was great. Inside it's spacious yet intimate, and the decor is simple and elegant. The people and service were welcoming and wonderful.
Every dish we ordered tasted like home, was generously portioned, and just so yummy. We started off with the Al Wadi sampler, which offered delicious bites of different apps. Highlights included the baba ghanoush, kibbeh, hummus, grape leaves and herbed cheese sticks. The labneh was also amazing. For my entree I got the shrimp kebabs, and they were perfectly cooked. They came with a mound of rice pilaf plus a tasty fatoush salad that had one of the best dressings I've had in a while -- so fresh and crisp! For dessert we split the knefeh, which is breaded cheese served with rosewater syrup and fresh fruit. It was just the right amount of sweet to end the meal.
We will definitely be returning!
Great food and great service. Highly recommended !!!
I meant to write that is was QUIET and lovely at Al Wadi.

I really recommend this place.

Delicious food and outstanding service !
New years eve
As always at AlWadi, everything was perfect! Food is delicious and staff very welcoming & friendly.
We are repeat customers. Food and service were very good. On the evening we were at Al Wadi, a wedding party was in the restaurant or a celebratory meal, which, in combination with the music, created a loud environment. Wish we had known of that group in advance. Otherwise, an enjoyable experience.
Everyone says I've driven by that place a million times....... Well if you're up for trying something new stop and try this hidden in plain site "gem". Fresh food made from awesome ingredients that fill all your senses with exotic spices and flavors. I brought some friends for dinner on Saturday night and they were super surprised and cant wait to go back. The lamb meatballs with fresh homemade Tazatziki were the winner!
What it lacks in ambience, Al Wadi more than makes up for in cuisine. Excellent, authentic middle eastern food. Highly recommended
Was an amazing experience we were 64 ppl and we had great time all was more than expected friendly staff and food and service was great
Al Wadi is a restaurant we visit very few months because we know the food i consistently good. Last Friday night was a very energetic evening even when we got there at 6:30pm. We were seated next to a party of 6 or 8 people. They were energetic and did not care who was around them. It was difficult to talk over them. We were a party of four. I asked if there were any other tables and they were full with reservations. One of the staff came over and offered us a solution that worked. We were seated in another area where a larger group was eating in an hour. Perfect! I tried a special with lamb and rice and Brussell sprouts and pistachio nuts. It was well seasoned. I thought a few pieces were not very warm, but it was tasty. t was plentiful and when reheated all the meat was warm.
Great food and great atmosphere, strongly recommend and will go back.
Friendly people and delicious foof
Relaxed, vibe with great selection of wines and beer from around the globe. Delicious selection of middle eastern mezze and full entrees. They offer a prix fixe menu and daily specials. I order a daily special which was a yummy stew with lamb, artichokes and root vegetables. Portions are large, service quick and friendly.
I'd recommend this place, delicious good and a reasonable price for your food.
One of the best and most authentic Lebanese restaurants in Boston. Very warm and inviting people.
Al Wadi was a terrific surprise. It’s all about the food. Go with friends, share, talk, enjoy!
Sampler plate was quite good, though the pita bread was subpar. The three entrees were very good. Portions were very generous, and we continued to enjoy them at home in the following days. The service was very good. The place was quiet Sunday evening, with few tables occupied. Don't know what the noise level is when this expansive restaurant is fully occupied. Greatly recommended!
I am a fan and have been going to Al Wadi's for many years. The food is always fresh and delicious! The staff is responsive to dietary needs and there is a wide selection of vegetarian and meat options. People are always friendly and the atmosphere is lovely and comfortable. It's a great place to meet friends and relax for a delicious meal!
Food was delicious, service was perfectly attentive but not hovering, we had a great evening!
The food is always excellent but the server and assistant where superb always there when we need something without intruding
Very nice place to have a nice quiet dinner after a long week. Great "date night" place to go.
Food is awesome.
Yummy!!! Really enjoyed!
We are here for the first time this Sunday and really enjoyed it. We shared the Meza platter. Haluomi and Chicken and Steak Kabobs. All the food was freshly prepared and tasty. Very nice ambience with white tableclothes and very good service. Would recommend and go back.
Great authentic middle eastern food. Service was excellent. Limited cocktail menu some of the dishes were a little pricey but not enough to discourage I'll will be going back Nice atmosphere
Food is amazin
Waitress was excellent very polite and attentive
We had a large graduation party and the staff was so attentive and helpful with ordering. The food was FABULOUS and the baklava is one of the best I have ever had. Thank you!
Yes I would recommend to friends and family. Large parties seemed to easily be served as well as the smaller ones. The wait staff are very friendly.
The service was horrible. But the food was good
While the food was good. Our server was stiff, rude and reluctant to our requests. The brought wrong orders all the time. And when we asked for tea, she brought us mint tea without really asking ask ! We kept asking for water all the time too!
Excellent middle eastern food. Service was very good, and had a very good arak, if u like it and the almazza beer.
