OMG best food. Like being in Israel. Everything we ordered was fantastic. The hummus, za’tar outa, regular pita, broccoli, cauliflower, cous cous, and pomegranate salad all to die for!

Mazal had some of the best Israeli food I've ever tried - Not that the list is long. Regardless I would come back here again for an intimate meal with close friends or family or even for a date. They have an excellent natural wine selection which on it's own is a reason to visit. While the location is a bit rough around the edges, you're immediately transported once you walk through the doors. I can't wait to tell more people about this spot and go back again myself.

My only gripe might be parking. It's in an odd part of town and there's no lots or garages, only street parking. We got pretty lucky and found a spot quickly, but I feel that on a busy weekend, you might not have as good of luck.

OpenTable says these reviews need to be at least 50 characters, but I don't need 50 characters to tell you how much I love Mazal - ambiance, food, service, vibes, everything. Mazal is my happy place.

As an Israeli, I was impressed by the food and its authenticity. Some restaurants will use fusion or ingredients that aren't typically a part of the diet when interpreting a culture's cuisine. Mazal was 100% authentically Israeli, using high quality ingredient inputs.

I was thrilled to eat at Mazal and I knew that I could order pretty much everything to eat, being a vegetarian. The food quality was high and delicious! I loved the non-alcholic beer from Israel as I'm not a non-alcohol drinker.

Entrees are quite overpriced for the taste and portion. Similar restaurants with similar flavor profile offer better dishes and larger portions for less price. Not sure what the markup is for because it’s not reflected in the taste.

Mazal is a must go if you’re in LA. Great vibe, fantastic staff and food that will make you want to move to Israel with the first bite.
Definitely will make it back. Also, any fans of orange wine? Please try their selection.

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.

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.
