"Fresh locally sourced food, fast service time and friendly staff ---this is The Scarlet Bee. This is more of a tapas restaurant with small plates meant for sharing which is a good opportunity to try the items that you've not had before. It is not your average Mediterranean restaurant with both drinks and food a bit different than I had expected.  Flavors popped and the baklava was the best I've had. For me, this is definitely a restaurant to try again and again."-Muffy W.


"I don't often do reviews, but had to write a quick one for Scarlet Bee because I ate there tonight and the food was awesome. Got shatta spicy dip, chicken shawarma, beef kebabs and baklava and everything was delicious. Easy to share and food had tons of flavor. Location is great and parking is easy. Will be back for sure!"

"We are very discerning, my wife and I; and at most retaurants, including upscale ones, we are usually somewhat disappoionted. But Scarlet Bee far exceeded our expecations, and particarly so give the price points for the various choices are quite reasonable, given the superb quality. Their homemade sodas are worth the trip itself. Add to that a couple of cold plates and a hot plate (all come with two portions per serving, so we could share) and we were pleased beyond compare."-Benjamin B.


"A group of us ate there last week.  The house-made sodas and the mixed drinks were great.  Six of us shared six small plates and all were pleased with the dishes - chicken shawarma was the best.  And the baklava was better than any I've had in 50 years of eating Lebanese food.  Good waitstaff; pleasant owners. A real find!"-Jay Williams


"Love love this place. The food had been excellent every time I've been and I can't get enough of their fabulous cocktails! Can't wait to go again"-Ellen B.


"This place is amazing! I live in Woodfin and have recently noticed how much great variety in food has been popping up all over. We decided to check out Scarlet Bee tonight on a whim and were very happily surprised. The food is SO good. So traditional and fresh tasting. Highly recommend sharing a couple of dishes, we shared 3 plates and it was the perfect amount (plus getting a little delicious baklava to finish). Also if you’re a cocktail person this is the place for you, they’re so unique. We will definitely be back and HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone."- Skye Hamburg
