On a Saturday night at 7 p.m., we enjoyed a mostly quiet time in the outdoor seating (except for the leaf blower at Johnny's and the occasional hot rod driving by). Taylor did a great job taking care of us. The appetizer sampler was great; my lamb kabob was delicious, and my wife loved her fish on couscous. The owner came by and was very nice. Great place and great value.

I enjoyed my birthday dinner at Taza so much. The food was extremely fresh and flavorful - and the ingredients are 100% clean so it gave me great peace of mind that I could order whatever I wanted!

I have visited this this restaurant several times over the past few years on trips to Cleveland and they never disappoint. The food is exceptional and authentic. Ask your server about advice on all the appetizers. They have so many that are so good.

It was after a Brown's game. I didn't think it too busy but the food was so so and the service was not the best. I am disappointed as the one we visited in Woodmere was fantastic.

The food, whether downtown or at Eaton, is consistently excellent.
The service was fantastic. Our server checked right off to see if we were in a lunch hurry, or had more time.
Our meals were generous portions, nicely presented, and tasted great.
We'll be back.

I highly recommend this restaurant. We had a lovely family dinner there prior to a concert at Jacobs Pavilion. The three of us shared the Taste of Taza appetizer, which was a nice selection of popular dishes, all freshly prepared and delicious. We then shared a large Lamb Kabob and an extra order of baba ganoush, one of our favorites from the sampler. The lamb had a nice char, yet was juicy and delicious. Everything was served with a selection of flat pitas and small round Lebanese bread that was fresh from the oven. We also tried Lebanese beer and wine, and were happy with those choices. Service was attentive and friendly without being intrusive. The restaurant was nicely decorated. The whole experience was lovely.

Authentic Lebanese food, from a Lebanese chef. We loaded up on a lot of appetizers before the main course. A feast not forgotten. Everything was wonderful. Don't miss this restaurant.

What a great experience. Our server was knowledgeable, personable and very efficient. The food was fresh and delicious. Service was excellent. Even though we didn't need anything more, it's always appreciated when a server comes back to do a "quality check" after you get your food. The portions were generous. I had ordered a half-size main course and still couldn't finish it all. This was our first visit to Taza, and although we don't live in Cleveland, we'll definitely eat here again when we come back.

The service from the kitchen was very slow but the waitstaff were extremely nice! Luckily we weren’t in a hurry.
We were all so disappointed in the puffy pitas. They were slightly puffy but very dense—not puffy and airy like they were pre-covid. Please go back to those! That’s one of the main reasons we come to Taza’s!

The food here is outstanding. That is something even in only one visit as a visitor to Cleveland, I think one can expect - authentic, tasty and good portions. The service and pacing of the meal - terrible. Our very large appetizer came out, and then within three minutes came our entrees, this after waiting over 20 minutes for the appetizer plate. (We wanted to order app first then once delivered, the meal, and we were encouraged not to do that for fear our entrees would get behind other groups.) And all of this on a two-top table. Service from the bar was also slack. And then a big unruly group was permitted to boisterously overpower our ability to even converse - maybe not seat a table of two next to a 10-top who are loud and up-and-about?

The food however, was amazing.

Quite possibly the best Middle Eastern food I’ve had, and I’m from New York, where there are a lot of Middle Eastern restaurants. The selections were very different than the usual fare and prepared deliciously. Good service too.

We scouted restaurants prior to arrival in Cleveland. We like ethnic foods and this place did not disappoint. A titillating experience for certain. Cleveland entertains you in the restaurant category. We had the Baba, cauliflower and the sojouke?(lamb anf beef) worthy of your business. Enjoy@
