    It's been at least five years since I ate last at mazzas and the food was just as wonderful as the first year they opened and every subsequent year. I was so please when they opened a second location. Ali's food is such a treat. An absolute delight for my tastebuds.

    Mazza is a great spot for just about any occasion. I don't give it a full five stars because it can be a little noisy at times and not everyone will love the exotic food - especially kids. I personally find their food to be amazing. The menu has so many unique options and the staff are knowledgeable and friendly. I also love the ambiance - its beautifully decorated and romantic.

    Always one of our favorites. We enjoy the chicken and potato Mutabbak. Also kind of a weird recommendation for a Lebanese restaurant, but we enjoy their fries and fry sauce...very addictive. Lime drink is also interesting. Kabob platters are also excellent. Baba ganooj is nice for an appetizer (our kids love it!).

    We love this restaurant,the patio is clean, cozy, and shaded. The waiting area is beautiful and comfortable. On our latest visit our food was fabulous and the servers was very helpful. Our food arrived quickly and the server helped us choose the most appealing dishes. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. We sat outside and had a wonderful time watching the people walking by. We had family in town for a wedding. The wedding events have been very stressful. We needed a break and this was a very nice relaxing meal. The owner served our dessert. It was a very nice touch. The desserts may have been even better then the meal!

    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!

    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

    The food and service, not to mention the ambience/decor, were all impeccable. This was our first of what will undoubtedly be many visits. 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!

    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!!!!

    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.

    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.

    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.
