IT was very busy at 7 pm on a Saturday night. We waited a long time for appetizers and the entrees came shortly thereafter which was less than ideal. Our waiter was very attentive and suggested a good wine (that he let us sample first which is always appreciated). We had the trio of mushrooms - very good, a Caesar salad - huge and nothing amazing, and the Chilean and Mediterranean Sea bass. They were both good although a little well done.

Mazi,

Seems like an overall good atmosphere. However, some patrons do not know the difference between an Applebee's ambiance and an intimate setting ambiance.

Most amazing dining experience to celebrate the wife’s birthday! The ambiance was delightful as it was modern chic and simplistically upscale; with nice chandelier lighting. Excellent selection of starter dishes that are shareable and such an expansive array of food options. Despite not having a children’s menu - the kids aged 9 and 10; found their stomach’s cravings in the lamb and beef burgers - the kids loved the lamb burger and the wife stated it was seasoned superbly! In recognition of the occasion; an elegant desert was sent out - a chocolate mousse Mona decorative plate scripted with Happy Birthday. Love the experience and it was not overly busy which is excellent during this pandemic environment. Definitely would return for a date night.

Went to dinner with my wife and 3 sons who were back for Thanksgiving and wanted to have a nice dinner at a quieter spot so we could all get caught up. I've been meaning to try Mazi and it worked our perfectly. Food and service were quite good. The group really enjoyed the Lamb Cubes , Saganaki and Calmari as appetizers. All of the entrees were great, especially the Chickent with Wine and Chilean Sea Bass.

Great job!

The atmosphere was not cozy, and the waiter was not friendly. I asked for a mock tail and he asked me if I wanted juice. I got the lamb chop and it was ok, but for the price, it was not special. Overall will not be coming back.

Omg the mushroom papardelle was absolutely amazing. Fried calamari was so crunchy and perfectly fried. The lamb burger had a bit too much char, but overall great experience.

Mazi was an outstanding venue for a celebratory lunch for an in-person meeting of long term friends with fairly sophisticated tastes. The service was prompt and attentive without being overbearing, the ambiance was inviting and the food delicious. I underestimated the difficulty of parking not realizing how many parking garages would be closed on Saturday afternoon. Once I stepped into the restaurant my frustrations began to dissipate given the warm greeting I received from our waiter. Dining at Mazi was a wonderful experience.

Smallish restaurant conveniently located just off 16th/K a couple blocks from the White House. Full bar with a nice wine list. My wife and I ate here a couple months ago when in DC on some personal business and wanted to repeat when here again. Greek influenced with a nice take on the Greek Salad. Chicken with Wine is very nice. Will return here when in town again.

I reserved at Mazi based on proximity to our hotel and the reviews. The restaurant is now clearly in my “favorites” for DC dining. The food was simply outstanding, the service warmly efficient, the ambiance smart yet comfortable. I’m not a big fan of the tv at the bar in the dining space, but it was only one and relatively unobtrusive. If I lived here, this would easily become a regular spot for me. Highly recommended.

The food was delicious and the service was good. The drinks are well made as well. Parking is scares so heads up. Overall, I will be retuning. A few of us are pescatarian and vegan and had something to choose from the menu.

We had a 7:30 pm reservation and had to wait about 10 min for the staff to clear a table. Worth the wait because it was a lovely booth table. The food was delicious and there was plenty of choices for one of our guests who is vegetarian. Came out hot and all four plates at the same time. The only downside was while our appetizer

So good!!! We chose Mazi because the restaurant pictures were pretty and it was close to our even venue. Boy did we get way more than what we expected! Service was amazing. Very accommodating, polite , patient and knowledgeable about the menu, both food and drinks. Thank you Jairon for everything!! He lamb chops amazing! Calamari perfectly cooked!! Honey feta so very tasty and way more mild than I expected. I can’t wait to return. I’m not a drinker at all but the Tiki Peach Blossom… Yes please! Definitely worth dropping in if given the chance. It’s a small intimate setting and COVID protocols are being followed.

After the GW bicentennial ceremony where they honored 2020 and 2021 graduates, we took our graduate and family for a 2:15pm meal at Mazi basically because it was a last-minute trip and Mazi could accommodate our party of 6. NO REGRETS! If I could give more than 5 stars, I would! The food was ahhhhmazing, the drinks were wonderful, and the staff was attentive, knowledgeable and kind. We have traveled a lot this year for our son’s comp volleyball. We now have happened upon three restaurants with a Greek influence, having never eaten Greek food in my life before now. All three restaurants were great! I will come back to Mazi again if we return to DC! Thank you for the wonderful hospitality, Mazi!!!
