Excellent food.

Go for the food. Their portions are generous and delicious! I went on a Saturday and there were maybe 2 large parties and 3 smaller ones, which barely filled a third of the restaurant. The waiter was quick to fill up my glass of ice tea, but the kitchen was a little slow in serving up the meal. On that Saturday, they had ""entertainment"" which was a band that plays a variety of Mideastern music, and a belly dancer. No complaints about the belly dancer, but the volume was loud when the band was playing that it made the liquid in my eyeballs shudder. If you arrive and the band is there, make sure you're not seated anywhere near a speaker, or better yet, turn around and reschedule. They also have a hookah set up in the back which is fun if you're into that. The night was a little price at about $90 per person for a party of five. Plenty of parking in the back.

Simply Great Tasting Food

I went here last night because a friend from out of town said he has no good Middle Eastern restaurants in his home city (Austin, TX). Based on feedback from various online sites, I decided to take him to Alcazar and we loved it. We ordered the Chef's Hummus - with whole chickpeas topped with pine nuts - and it was a great way to start a meal. He ordered the combo plate, which had three types of meat kabobs and all of them tasty (the chicken was the one we liked the best). I ordered the vegetarian plate which came with hummus, grape leaves, tabbouleh salad, baba gannoush, and falafel. Everything tasted great but the highlight was the baba gannoush. Possibly one of the best I've had.

It was not crowded on the Wednesday night we went but I have a feeling this place can get packed on weekends. The servers were very nice to us and the bill came out to a little over $40 without gratuity.

Worth a try

A recent outing here, based on a glowing review in a local rag, was an interesting experience. The food, overall, was very well-prepared and interesting, especially for these Lebanese-novices.

Their menu includes all the usual middle-eastern dishes, but also offers an extensive selection of less common starters, both hot and cold. Sadly, there wasn't a sampler platter of these, so we tried one of each. The cold raw beef and cracked wheat appetizer was mild, yet rich. The tender lamb and pine nuts in a lemon-butter sauce was amazing. We wish, though, that they offered a smaller portion of the former and included more for the latter. Entrees were pretty standard fare, but delicious.

The only real complaint was with the service, which was extremely rushed and not very friendly or helpful. Considering the money we spent, we would prefer to be treated more politely.

Authentic Lebanese/Middle Eastern Cuisin

Absolutely delicious and authentic. The different mezzas (akin to tapas) were prepared w/care--a meal unto themselves! The chicken and beef kabobs were flavorful and tender. Also, argeeleh (hookah pipes) are available and add to the ambience.
