Very good food. The fish Tajin main dish was spectacular. Made with Halibut, tahini sauce and proper spices and pine nuts was right on. Lamb was great as well though favor the fish. Appetizers were all great and loved the tabbouli which was excellent and the cauliflower. Will be a regular on my list.

Excellent fresh and healthy food! Limited wine list. Highly recommend the dip sampler as app! Great to be able to do veggies instead of pita.

We ordered an iced tea, Lebanese beer, lamb meatballs, shakshuka, and the kafta burger. The iced tea was so bitter I could not drink it. The beer was very good. The lamb meatballs appetizers seemed too small there were only three quite small meatballs for $12.00 were very dry, however the flavor was quite good and the sauce they were served in was also very good. Now about the shakshuka. When we ordered I had asked if the eggs were poached in the sauce I was told no they prepared them however you want and then put them in the sauce. This turned out to be incorrect. I had ordered the shakshuka with the eggs yokes to be easy. Not only were they cooked through the dish was lukewarm. I asked for a new dish with the yolks runny. When it came back out the whites were not even close to set. At least the dish was hot enough to finish cooking them when I stirred them in. The burger was excellent and the fries were superb. Serve for a slow Wednesday afternoon was quite slow as it took over 40 minutes to get out food. Sadly I cannot recommend this restaurant.

Food was fantastic. Lovedthe dips - especially the beet dip and muhammara. Also the spiced lane, only place I have found that in SLC since moving from NYC - made me very happy. I had the Laziz salad bowl with tarok chicken and loved it, my daughter had the falafel burger (she is vegan) and loved it - along with the fries. The cauliflower florets were also quite tasty. Our waiter was great, helpful, attentive, friendly, but not intrusive. I will be back, for sure.

It was bit noisy inside, so we sat outside and found it quieter and very pleasant.

I’ve been to Laziz about 6x in the last few years and once got takeout when I was in the hospital after having a baby. The food is always exceptional! I find it is very helpful that the menu states if it is vegan/vegetarian. I especially love the dip sampler with veggies, grape leaves, & wraps. I find the falafel a little crispy for my liking and the wraps a little dry. I would love to have more dressing on those. I also would order salmon if it was Wild Alaskan instead of farmed. The beer and wine menu is very good. Wish I could go more often.

We did not have the best experience here to be honest. We were excited to check out this restaurant but it fell short. First of all, my husband ordered a beer that was on the menu for $7. This came out in a bottle (with a glass) and the bottle still had the $2.50 single beer sticker price on it from when it was purchased...not the best foot forward for the service. If you're going to overprice your beers that much at least take the labels off. We did enjoy the first dip we ordered but there was not enough pita to go around. I ordered a cauliflower bowl and my husband ordered the kafta burger. On both counts the meat was *cold* dry and flavorless -- not what I would expect from this style of beef. Overall, I would not recommend or go back to this restaurant -- does not seem worth the price.

I did want this restaurant to be good. Be aware that this is a "Lebanese-inspired" restaurant and does not really offer Middle-Eastern cuisine. The entree was fairly good (I had the lamb shank), but think American food that may have been glanced at by a Lebanese person once or twice. The baba ganoush was probably an eggplant at one point... I think, but there was a smoked flavor to it that tasted artificial. Not sure what was going on there as tahini doesn't usually have that taste. The pita bread was unoffensive - it did nothing to or for me. Overall, the portions were fair, but the wine by the glass was very small for what you pay for. You may see an inch from the bottom of the glass filled with wine - the glass was definitely not half-full, or even a quarter-full... possibly an eighth-full for a mere $10 per eighth for a step above house wine quality. (I am being slightly snarky here. There was maybe a quarter of a glass if you stretched it.) Disappointing. The dolmades were definitely Greek-tasting, not the Lebanese Warak Enab. The friend I was with had two glasses of wine and dolmades, and I had the lamb shank, baba ganoush, and two glasses of wine. The meal came to just under $100. Overall, it was disappointing on a lot of levels. To market as a Lebanese restaurant and not have Lebanese food is to set expectations awry. Second, to not even get two entrees for $100 with a couple of glasses of wine is very odd, especially when there so little Lebanon to be found. Third, the vibe of the place was more like a cafe and much less like fine-dining. For a pricey meal, ambiance is important. It seemed to be hipstered-up on just the right outskirts of dinginess to make it "cool" to be there. I just didn't really find it cool.

We arrived a few minutes early to our reservation and were immediately seated. We ordered two appetizers and a salad to share, everything was delicious. I was worried that the portions would not be big enough for both of us but they were just right. After dinner we ordered two types of baklava and coffee, again everything was delicious. My only complaint was that service was a little slow, however our server was friendly. I will definitely go back next time I am in town.

Fun place to go for some out-of-the-way offerings. Pleasant but somewhat odd, mixed-1970s style to the decor. Louder than we would have liked, but we could still hear one another, with a bit of an effort. The service was excellent. The food ranged from good to delicious. The vegetarian pizza, for example, was good but a little bland. It would be better with a spicy pesto sauce, for example. An above-average falafel, but not the best. The garlic fries and slightly zingy sauce were wonderful. Pretty much all the dishes were plentiful. It would be nice if they offered a no-alcoholic beer.

I think Laziz Kitchen has awesome food, wonderful servers, and a great ambiance.

However, it was disappointing to see that they had no handicapped parking spots. My sister, who was with me, is handicapped. We had a lot of issues parking and getting into the restaurant. Seeing the sign about loving and accepting everyone was kind of ironic because she did not feel accepted there. She felt forgotten.

Please, Laziz Kitchen, work on getting handicapped parking spots! It's a wonderful restaurant, and I hate to see people unable to access the yummy Lebanese food.

So incredibly disappointed. Food was bland. Burgers were well done and they were ordered medium rare. Eggplant wasn't cooked thru. Our server was clueless. She asked how our food was and my husband said, my burger is well done and she said "oh" and walked away. I wanted so much to love this place and had great expectations that the food would be stand out. The best part of the evening was the lovely host, he saved what would have been an awful evening.

This was our third visit to Laziz. The food was outstanding on the first two visits. Unfortunately, the beef strips I ordered with my Laziz platter on the third visit were very over done and tasteless. This said, we love this place and will definitely be going back. Maybe it was just an off night..
