Try the Chicken Swarma salad! – I have been to Semiramis twice and it's super yummy. I went there for a birthday gathering with a party of 8 and everyone loved their food. I had the chicken swarma salad and it was outstanding. It's like a chopped salad but with a mediteraian flair. It was so big that I got two more meals out of the leftovers.
My only complaint is that as it was a birthday party, we had presents, etc. and asked to them to pull up an extra chair for the presents, and the waitress said no because they needed all the chairs. That was kind of a turnoff. We took one anyone and said if you need it, let us know. of course they didn't need the chair.
Everything else was great and the prices are reasonable. I still prefer Noon O Kabob right down the street, but that place is expensive and it's not BYOB.
mint and parsley rule – I have been to loads of restaurants that serve similar fare as semiramis but i have found none that does what they do as well. The tabbouleh is without a doubt the best I have had in the city; which for me means green. The service is friendly and the prices quite reasonable. Oh yeah, the falafel is also superb.
Food was just Average; wouldn't go out of my way. – Ho-hum mediterranean restaurant. Food was just average; and, not much atmosphere. On the plus side servers and hosts, were friendly and attentive. Hummus appetizer was small, though tasty. Chicken Darewah on eggplant is not recommended; neighboring diner had it on salad which looked much better (and bigger). It's BYOB, but there's a $3 corkage.
Friendly Service and Great Food – I've been to Semirami's three times, all three had the same waitress (and she acknowledged it every time) and each time did not disappoint. Cozy place for BYOB and no corkage fee, super convenient location (across from the train), and great Lebanese food.
