Just an outstanding, low-key meal with authentic cuisine at a great cost.

the food is fantastic and Home Made !!!. I haven't ate this type of food in ages. Every bite melts in your mouth. The Cauliflower salad, Humus, babaganoush, and Bourekas are out of this world. The fine wines are also exceptional. This restaurant belongs in a 5 star hotel.

Mazal is my new favorite place that I will be frequenting often. Plates are shareable if you're up for sharing. We got the spicy tahini, hummus, red lentil soup, Maghrebi Potatoes, and the Charred Broccoli w/ Lemon Garlic Aioli. Everything was super flavorful, filling, and delicious! 10/10 would recommend!

Food was delicious, well thought out. But the aesthetic/ambience was kitsch. And, I don't prefer club music while eating dinner. But the hummus, pita, beets, and salad made up for it!

We ate here for the first time to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday, and consider ourselves to be slight Mediterranean/Middle Eastern food "critics" in our own heads. The food, ambience, and service was incredible. Definitely surpassed our expectations and we certainly plan to be back in the near future. If you like Med food, I highly suggest this restaurant. I appreciated that the food was traditional yet still with a modern spin... and most importantly VEG friendly!

Some absolutely stellar dishes! We loved the hummus and the spicy tahini.

There's loads to love about this place and we'll be back to try more from the menu. I hope they add some more substantial dishes to the menu. Even though we were stuffed when we left, it didn't really feel like we had had a meal.

Bourekahs were disappointing - didn't feel home cooked in the way other items did.

Excellent wine choices and really nice atmosphere.

This is my new favorite restaurant. I have been here twice and the food was incredible and the service was outstanding both times. Everything I’ve tried here was absolutely delicious.

The interior and patio are beautifully designed. It’s a perfect place for date night, special occasions, or just a nice weekday dinner out.

Had a wonderful time at Mazal. The food was delicious and perfect to share with friends. Great selection of beer/wines as well. Our server was very attentive. Recommend the goat cheese flat bread. They have the best pita bread I’ve ever tasted!

The ambiance would be massively improved by simply turning down the lighting brightness and putting out a few candles. Other than that, we had a great time and the food was amazing.

Street parking. At first sight, you may think hmmm...then you enter a courtyard on the side and back of the building and are sitting at your picnic table. There is also a choice of limited seating inside and it looked really cool (I would like to sit at the bar next time). It is a wonderful menu - so many choices! Four of us shared; Hummus, babaganous, Spicy Tahini, Bourekas, Beets, Cauliflower salad, and Couscous. It was all exquisite. So fresh and delicious and wonderful together. The Couscous was my favorite on top of the beets and spicy tahini. Everyone LOVED the fresh lemonade/Basil drink "the best lemonade I have ever had." My only suggestion would I wish they would add a taster dish with all the amazing dips such as hummos, baba ganoush, Tahini, Matboucha together for group sharing. We wanted to try everything because everything we saw looked delicious - we will be returning soon.

They’re obviously still working out the kinks with regard to service, managing reservations, and communication between among staff (poor souls looked stressed!). But the food is too delicious to miss! We ordered a ton and like everything, but it wasn’t until we paid that we realized we were charged for pita that said it was included on the menu, and they forgot a beet dish we ordered. Again, all small issues that will not prevent me from going back again and again. Try the white Syrah. So good!

We made reservations for my friends bday. She is a vegan and mention this place that had just open near her home. We decided to give it shot. Service was great food was delish. We had a small issue with the seating arrangements outside and wanted a table that was not a high top bar stool. But aside from that issue that was easily fixed the venue was cute and will definitely come.

First time at Mazal and took my mom who’s middle eastern and a picky eater. We were absolutely blown away with the food and service we received. The ambiance is unparalleled to anything in LA. It’s a cute, family-run, hole in the wall with lots of options for vegetarians. It’s an understatement for me to say the food was absolutely delicious. We’ve lived in LA for over 30 years and this is some of the best, authentic Mediterranean food we’ve ever had. It’s just how mom cooks it at home and you can taste the difference immediately. We felt extremely at home and made to feel welcome with quick service. We’ll definitely be coming back here soon. Thank you Tal and Channi!
