Mashawi Mediterranean Cuisine Ratings and Reviews
Quick, friendly service. Food was well prepared and very flavorful. As written, menu items seem like they might be rather similar - meat, carrots, peppers, onions... However the sauces all have different blends of herbs and spices. Not "spicy" food, per se, but very well flavored. If you want spicy, go next door (Thai).
Was seated quickly upon arrival, nice table good location, extensive menu with great choices.
Service was friendly and quick took good care of our needs we had ticket to Opera so were under time constraints food was excellent and served with plenty of time to enjoy and get over to McCaw hall with time to spare this will be one of our go to places when going to Rep and Opera easy to get reservation the day before most places are always booked days in advance.
This restaurant is located walking distance from Seattle Opera, PNW Ballet, Key Arena and Seattle Rep, which is great. The food was quite tasty - the owners are Lebanese. Unfortunately the service was incredibly slow as there were more customers than the servers could accommodate. We waited 30 minutes before we even got a drink and we had to flag down waitstaff to remind them of our order. It also got very crowded - the place is small and the tables are pretty tight. Again, the food was great.
My family saw The Nutcracker during dress rehearsal and came here to eat dinner afterward. With one in our party being Vegan and another with dairy allergies, Mashawi had entrees to cater to every dining need. The food was great tasting and portions large. Soup or salad was included along with pita bread. Everyone enjoyed their meal and commented on how good it tasted. I highly recommend Mashawi for any occasion; it is our go-to destination when we are in Seattle Center.
Everything was over-sauced and over-dressed. I ask the waiter for a recommendation and he couldn’t give me one. I gave him a choice of a couple of things and he was unenthusiastic about both. Now I know why. None of the four dishes we had were tasty.
Mashawi always satisfies. I've been through the menu at least a dozen times and have my favorites. So I rotate among them and enjoy every meal. Excellent for a pre-perfomance meal, as long as you get there by 5:30 and have a reservation. Staff does a perfect job of getting you served and finished, without rushing you in time to make the beginning of a performance.
The restaurant is small which makes the noise level a little high on a crowded night, but that doesn't detract from the food or the great service. Flavors were excellent And the portions extremely generous. Everything was wonderful.
One of the best baba ghanouj's I've ever tasted! Very strong, bold smoky flavor (I loved it!) Excellent cauliflower appetizer dish as well. Great location for shared tapas if you're interested in a lighter meal as well as full menu for bigger appetites. Great, friendly server.
