    Dined on 8/20/2014
  • "I love Lebanese cuisine and this is the best. Very good quality. It is a labor intensive cuisine. Flavors are great, including the fresh limeade with rose water! I would eat here 3 times a day, 7 days a week if I could!"

  • "Delicious food, great service, great atmosphere. For dinner, I recommend ordering the entrees over rice, instead of as sandwiches--makes a more satisfying meal."

  • "Our Mazza experience this past Saturday night was exceptional, due to the company, the food and the service. We had been to Mazza on 15th and 15th and thought it very good, but the venue on 9th and 9th is much larger and has a better vibe, in my opinion. Although we dined indoors, the outdoor space looked very inviting. Our server, Britani sp?, could not have been any better. The whole experience was excellent and we will definitely return to Mazza!"

  • "Mazza is consistently excellent. Start with the cocktails. I never drink them, but when I saw dark and stormy and caipirinha they brought back memories of trips in the past. The entrées ware perfectly cooked and above all seasoned beautifully. The restaurant like the one at 15th and 15th gets full early. For a trip to the Middle East, try Mazza"

Our server, Mark, was friendly and attentive without being obsequious or interrupting. He made good recommendations on the food and encouraged us to try the baklava which was truly amazing. No complaints, we're happy diners!"

  • "We let our waiter know we were on a restrained time frame as we were heading to the theater and rah was enough for them to make our experience even better. No stress we Order sampler appetizers which were delicious and beef kabobs! Food Was outstanding. Felt like dining at a Lebanese restaurant in New York City! Highly recommended! Great experience. Will definitely comeback and taste some more dishes."

I have always been a fan of Mazza and was blown away by the flavors, from appetizers to the desserts. A true gem in Salt Lake!"

  • "Maza on 9th & 9th brought a taste of the far away mediterranean cuisine right to this quaint neighborhood in SLC. The service was on point with out being overbearing. Our server had an intimate familiarity with the cocktails and wine list. Many of the wines we had never tried. She was able to guide or selection to match our meals and our tastes. Excellent. The food was amazing. The spices and aromas carried us away. Additionally, the pace of the meal was fabulous. We were not rushed or hurried to finish our meal. We were able to enjoy every course to its fullest. This is definitely a place we will go back to again and again..... Thanks so much!!!!"

  • "Our waiter Mark made the entire experience a lot of fun. My wife truly enjoyed the lamb and spinach. Be sure to save a little room for the dessert."

  • "It had been several years since visiting the Mazza location at 15th and 15th. A friend and I decided to do "dinner-and-a-movie" and thought that dinner at Mazza at 9th and 9th and a movie at the Tower Theater would make a great evening. We had a great time together and it started off with the fabulous meal at Mazza. Everything from appetizer to dessert was wonderful. I carefully choose a spot to eat out only about once every couple of months due to limited budget and so I never want to feel disappointed. I am happy to report that I was very pleased with all aspects of the outing."
    Dined on 10/5/2013
  • "We had dinner at Mazza with friends and we all enjoyed our dinner. The chicken and potatoes is always a hit. The lamb kabob with an eggplant dish was very good. As always the hummus was terrific. As a table we also enjoyed a red wine from Israel that was excellent."

  • "We made reservations at Mazza for a group of 7 to celebrate a special family occasion. Fortunately, the timing of our occasion was such that 5:00pm was a perfect time to arrive for dinner, and we were the only patrons in the restaurant when we arrived. Our orders were taken as soon as we were ready, and our dinner arrived at our table very soon after. The food was wonderfully seasoned in Middle Eastern style and was superb. The service was also very attentive and welcoming. Even the restaurant, while not elegant, was warm and relaxing. The entire experience was a perfect environment for our celebration, and I look forward to our next visit to Mazza."
    Dined on 8/30/2013
  • "This was my first visit to Mazza in Salt Lake City (9th and 9th). The food, service, and atmosphere were top notch. Portions were generous. Food was well seasoned and delicious. Definitely a place to add to your list if you are looking for a special spot to take your spouse or friends. Thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant and will most definitely return."
    Dined on 8/27/2013
  • "First off - We love Mazza and have been patrons since the early days on 15th & 15th! The 9th & 9th location is much larger and easier to get a table. The food, vegetarian eggplant for myself and a med-rare beef served over rice were prepared perfectly to our liking. We always order the Walnut and Red pepper appitizer and it certainly did not disappoint either! Our waiter was great until the food arrived (and his girl friends). After that we became invisible. I had to repeatedly try to get his attention and when he did arrive I had to remind him about what I had already asked for. I wanted to get a dessert to share but by the time I would have ordered, I was too weary. We also only had one drink each which is unusual."
    Dined on 8/19/2013
  • "This is the first time we visited this restaurant and it did not disappoint. The flavors of the food were unique and delicious. We will come again and will recommend this place to friends."

  • "We have been to Mazza's a few times and it has always been incredible. Went there on Friday night for my daughters bday. We didn't think that we would be able to get in it being a weekend, but made reservation online that same day and it was awesome. We were all so excited. The food is awesome and am looking forward to our next visit there."

  • "On our first visit to Mazza, the food was stellar and the service was fantastic. The waitress walked us through the popular dishes and was very friendly. At the end of the meal the very capable store manager recommended the house made Baklawa. It was amazing! Not too sweet and uniquely flavorful. We had a fantastic evening at Mazza."
    Dined on 4/27/2013
  • "Great, unique food. Great drinks. Great location! Our waiter, Lance, was very nice, and he was helpful when we asked questions about the menu. The only problem was how long we had to wait to order dinner, order dessert and get our check. It was a Friday night and the restaurant slowly filled, but we waited for our check for almost ten minutes. The atmosphere at this place is really nice, but the tables are too close together. Right before we ordered dessert, a pair of ladies were sat next to us, and it was like my date with my husband suddenly became a foursome; my advice is go early, before the place is busy, so you don't have to rub elbows w/strangers."

  • "We're lucky to have a neighborhood restaurant the quality of Maza. Very vegetarian friendly, too."

  • "I will say that food was fantastic, I just don't care much the spot we were seated, it was by a window and it was cold, we can even feel a little bit of wind. But other than that everything was fantastic."
