    Everything would have been perfect if it weren't for the fact that when I got the bill I was surprised that they charged me 4 dollars for regular water, it's the first time I've been in a restaurant and they charge me for regular water. 😒

    This food was unbelievable. After vacationing in south beach we were starved for good food. This hit. The only suggestion I have is the noise is way too much. I booked a table for two for me and my partner. I requested a cozy table. I think we got the noisiest one next to the intersection lol. Im from nyc so I’m use to noise but this was a bit over the top. The food was so unbelievable though. We shared the chicken shawarma which was flavorful and filling but not greasy or heavy. The beet humus and The grape leaves were refreshing. And the fried halloumi I’ve never had it made like that before and was a great treat. They could have had some more mock-tail options. We should’ve sat inside but still loved it all enough to give it 4 stars.

    The food is excellent, well presented, fast service, the restaurant decoration is nice, but the only but is if you seat outside, it is in front of a busy road, so it is quite noisy, try to get a table inside or not that close to the street.

    The messes wonderful eggplant, muhammara, as well as octopus. The lamb chops unfortunately server marked medium instead of medium rare and when 2nd chops came out fat to meat ratio too much. Noise level outside with revving motorcycles car noise made for unpleasant experience.

    The food is good but not great for the price and portions they serve. The service started ok but not great after food was served. Desert came several minutes after coffee was brought to the table, and served warm. I would recommend based on the food experience but I would not return. I think there are better legit Lebanese places in Miami, outside of Wynwood tourist area.

    I’m not sure why I never heard of Lira until now. The food is delicious and the staff are super friendly and offer great service. The patio is lovely. We had Hummus Beiruti, Mouttabel (the Lebanese version of babaganoush), Grilled vegetable kebab and beef kebab and a side order of Toum (garlic dip, my favorite). Everything was very tasty. We like Mandolin Aegean a lot and the food at Lira is definitely on par with Mandolin. The complimentary zaatar flat bread and pita bread are also excellent. Can’t wait to go back.

    Overall, we had a good experience. The servers were good, but could be more engaging in answering questions; perhaps a bit more friendly too. There's a couple of servers with limited English proficiency... I supposed that understandably plays a role in the limited interactions. We definitely had a good lunch, good time. Thank you!
    LIRA Beirut eateryResponded on December 29, 2023
    Thank you Regg for your review and feedback, just to clarify something for our readers and yourself, our servers all speak fluent English as you cannot be a server at our restaurant if you do not speak English. Secondly yes most of our bussers and runner their English is limited, but does not take away from enthusiasm and caring to our customers. I appreciate your feedback and since most of my staff have been with us for now almost a year with almost no turnover, we are considering investing in giving them English lessons as a way to thank them for their hard work in making this restaurant amazing in our first year. Glad you enjoyed and it was our pleasure having you. Ahmed Roushdy General Manager

    The food was excellent. We really enjoyed everything we ordered. Unfortunately, the service was subpar and vehicular noise was terrible where we sat outside. What frustrated me most was they charged our table $12 for tap water and we had to continue to ask for the server to refill our water.
    LIRA Beirut eateryResponded on December 11, 2023
    Thank you for your review, and appreciate the feedback, yes it was Art Basel so the roads outside were very busy, and so was the restaurant. With respect to the water charge, we don't serve tap water, we have a special filtering machine that provides both still and sparkling water and you can have unlimited sparkling or fresh filtered water. the $2 per person represents to cover the monthly maintenance cost of the machine. We are environmentally friendly and I do not like to buy and use plastic and glass bottles, and this system is the dame system the four seasons, ritz Carlton and a lot of restaurants are switching to now. Come back again and let us shoot for a 5 star review. Ahmed Roushdy General Manager
