Cedar's Restaurant Review
This family-owned Lebanese eatery, set in a major upscale strip shopping center that's become part of Restaurant Row, serves Middle Eastern standards like shish kebab, baba ghanoush (an ultra-smoky variety that is the very best in town), and hummus as well as tasty daily specials. One of the most notable regular entrées is the samak harra (sautéed red snapper fillet topped with onions, tomatoes, and cilantro). More formal than the average Orlando-area Middle Eastern restaurant, and featuring a cocktail menu, Cedar's has tables with white-linen tablecloths and diners who tend to sport resort-casual attire. A belly dancer performs on Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 pm; hookah pipes are popular on the back patio.
