We so enjoyed this experience. The Baba Ghannouj was super yummy -- the pita chips were slightly over fried but still good. The Fassoulia was hearty and delicious. We weren't quite sure what to expect with the Cevich Bowl but were pleasantly surprised. It was the most beautiful dish -- and spiced just right. Last was the wrap with tawook chicken -- filled with all sorts of yummy veggies and the sauce...well it made the wrap!

I was very excited to try Laziz. After traveling through Israel and the region I learned to love this cuisine. The overall experience was good. A few things to note. The menu does not have many entree selections for dinner. The appetizer selection is nice. We had the hummus, cauliflower and Mediterranean pizza to start. We had to ask for more pita to go with hummus as it only came with 4 pieces and there were 6 of us. An over sight by our waiter. The entree selections were slim. Only 4 to choose from unless you wanted a small salad or a wrap. Most at the table had the lamb shank and said it was good. Others had the garbanzo bean and eggplant fattet. It was good. Next time I’ll order it with the ground beef for more flavor and fill. Our waiter was very busy and we had to flag him down to take our order. He was very nice, but I think they were under staffed for a Saturday night. Service was slow. If I had one thing to say overall about the restaurant is that it is NOISY. They could really improve upon this by dropping some sound absorbing panels from the bare exposed ceiling. Also, the door opens right into the tables. It’s cold every time the door opens. The couple (not with us) that was sitting next to us asked to be moved due to the cold every time the door opens. There is No waiting area.
I’ll return, but probably not for dinner. More of a lunch or take out location for me.

Went to Laziz Kitchen for dinner with a few friends and had an overall great experience. Thought the food was good but a bit overpriced for the portion of food we received. The baba ganoush was a bit too smokey for my taste, but I highly recommend the salmon and checking out the whole30/keto menu.

We waited 10 minutes to get menus or poured water. Finally I asked my daughter to get menus from the hostess stand, and my husband later grabbed a carafe of water that was sitting in their counter. A table sat down after us and was immediately given menus and water, and their order was taken before ours. We had three kids with us and even they noticed that people who came in after us were eating their meal long before we got ours!! The food is enjoyable but the service needs some work. The staff is friendly, just not very attentive.

Reservation wasn't necessary for a Wednesday lunch. We were seated quickly with many different options for table types. The wait staff is just the right amount of attentive where they are quick to respond to requests, but not an annoyance. The space doesn't get too loud to where conversation is difficult.

Food was great - yummy with great portions. One small (but important) complaint/observation. The wine service was not what I expected. Basically plunking the $40 bottle down quickly on the table, then the server walking away. We ordered two bottles serially, so this happened twice. I am used to the server actually filling/refilling the wine glasses. Also, due to the architecture, when the front door opens it lets in a blast of cold air. This was sort-of fine for a brisk October evening. However, I don't see myself coming back until the spring. We were seated near the door and the temperature kept fluctuating with each door opening.

Truly one of the best kept secrets of the SLC foodie scene. It's tranquil and atmospheric, and virtually everything on the menu is organic and authentically middle-eastern. My party shared plates, and there was nothing on the table that didn't taste amazing. I hope to come back regularly.

While most of the food was good, overall it just didn't taste very authentically Lebanese. The cooks in the kitchen appeared to be Hispanic. The baba ganoush was smoky and quite good. The hummus was bland and flavorless with no discernible spice at all. The pita bread was cold, dry, and tough. The special, a zucchini roll filled with rice and covered in a yogurt sauce had a nice flavor but was not hot -- lukewarm at best. The tabbouleh salad had a spice I've never encountered in that dish before and it wasn't very pleasant. I'm sure there are better Lebanese restaurants in SLC. Those that are family-owned and operated are the best, in our experience.

First time trying Laziz Kitchen. Went with family and a friend early on a weeknight. Great tasting Lebanese food, casual but modern environment, very friendly service. We did family style and tried a couple dips, a few mezzes and a couple entrees. Portions are generous. The desserts were fantastic too. Baklava very light and flakey, with very nice homemade ice cream (we had apricot and vanilla rose). Will be back to try the items we didn't get to this time.

Not really sure), i was kinda hoping he would come to.our table and ler him know how impressed we are.

We’ve been to Laziz twice before, and I am always pleased by the vegetarian options and the quality of the food, as well as the friendliness of the staff and overall ambience. Unfortunately, this time my mother ordered the dinner bowl with beef, and she tells me the beef was very tough and chewy. The falafel is consistently a hit, and the eggplant garbanzo bean stew was quite tasty, though the portion was small and despite also ordering appetizers, I was still hungry. Overall I would recommend Laziz, especially for vegetarians.
