Very good authentic food. You can get a lot of Mediterranean food. The sauces are very good too.

My husband and I enjoyed Desert Rose for the first time last night. The weather was so wonderful that we set out looking for a nice place with a patio to enjoy dinner. Did we luck out!!! We shared the Frito Misto and the Baked Brie appetizers and were wonderfully surprised. The squid and crab in the Frito Misto were lightly floured and crispy. No sopping greasy items here. The Baked Brie, served with toast, apple slices and strawberries was ooey-gooey...as it should be. My husband raved about his double cut pork chop entree and swears we will be back just for that piece of meat. I opted for a lighter dish, the Garbanzo and Edamame salad with grilled salmon added. LOVED IT! The crispy tofu was done well, lightly crispy on the outside without drying out or oiling up the tofu itself. The added salmon makes this lovely salad a perfect entree. In it's original form (without the salmon), this salad is a wonderful vegan entree. Although we sat inside, the huge glass door was wide open and the breeze made us feel like we were sitting outside on the patio. The only regret I have about Desert Rose is that we didn't bother to stop in before last night. It's a great addition to the neighborhood and we both agreed that we'll be going back soon.

So I've been coming to Desert Rose for a while now...and figured I would FINALLY write a review as it is long past due. It's one of my favorite places to meet my girlfriends during happy hour and down some majorly delicious arnold palmers or mocha martinis. it is also a favorite to go to before a big night out...as we will sit there for what seems like hours and just enjoy the amazing tabbouleh and drinks. the service is great and you never feel like you are annoying anyone or stepping on anyones toes. a definite MUST for anyone in the area!

Well, I recently went to Desert Rose, A great restaurant for peace, relaxation, and of course, food. The food was good, but what really impressed me was their Mediterranean Food. No one makes these kinds of food, better than the Desert Rose. I Am Hoping you can experience the joy some time.

Me and a few of my friends went in today to grab lunch at the Desert Rose and it was great! I am shocked I haven't heard of this place before. The location is walking distance to all the hipest strips in Los Feliz. The service was great and the Owner was extremly fiendly. My girlfriends and I started out with the Brie appetizer which was TO DIE FOR. I ordered the speciel, (Ravioli of the Day) best ravioli I have ever had. Not only great food, relaxing yet classy/urban outside patio but just straight up good energy, and. . . THE PRICES ARE UNREAL!!!! I checked out the beautifull full bar, found out that on weekends they play live jazz music. I will defenitly be back here with my girls for great drinks and dinner. On top of this, my waitress showed me the i brunch & vegan menu. Looks great. Salmon & crab Beniditcs, my fav. If you love dinning surrounded by roses, the freedom to sit and enjoy yourself as long as you want and a check that is not killing your wallet. . then this is the place for you.

This place was great! I went with a group of friends, and all of the food was authentic Lebanese/Middle Eastern, and fresh... They have live music and an outdoor patio, great for either a date or large groups. The owner made sure we had a good time, and I will definitely be returning when I'm on that side of town!

Pros: Authentic Middle Eastern Food

Cons: off the beaten track

I went there with a group of friends and everything was amazing. We started with the house made hummus and pita bread which was probably the best combination of hummus's that I've had in awhile. Then we all shared the crispy goat cheese salad and if you love cheese, then you'll love the crispy goat cheese (so amazing)! Then I got the roasted eggplant soup which had a falafel in the middle (which was spicy...YUM). I had never had eggplant soup and I think that this was one of my most favorite dishes of the night. Then we all shared the fire-roasted vegetables which were very flavorful. For my entree, I ordered the chicken & beef kebab plate. I'm not a huge "meat" person and both were cooked perfectly and the side pita was a great combination. And for desert, we all shared the warm chocolate lava cake which was so creamy and full of amazing-ness! Overall, this place was great and I would highly recommend it for a group dinner or for a romantic date. The ambiance was perfect...great decor, live jazz music playing in the background and a fun crowd. Thanks for a great night Desert Rose :)

This charming Los Feliz eatery offers sophisticated food at moderate prices and a nice blend of casual elegance. A smattering of Lebanese emigres, Silver Lake cocktailers and local families make themselves at home on the verdant patio…
