Taza - A Lebanese Grill (Downtown Cleveland) Ratings and Reviews
We will be back!! Picked Taza after seeing all the great reviews. Atmosphere was warm and friendly, but enjoyably quiet. Service was amazing, and the food was yummy. Ordered drinks, appetizerS and meals and the bill was under $50.
Recommend the hummus and potatoes appetizer!!
We had an out of town business associate visit us in Cleveland and felt TAZA was the perfect spot to meet for lunch. It was conveniently located, in walking distance, for all of us. We were a party of four and everyone enjoyed our lunch and the ambiance and will definitely come again in the near future.
The service was absolutely amazing. The restaurant was a little slower but the waitress was so extremely pleasant and attentive the entire visit. The food was good but I believe better at the woodmere location. It was a nice place and we will go back because of the service.
This restaurant has a classic, vintage interior, a great downtown location, friendly helpful service, and outstanding food. Our tabbouleh and baba ghanoush appetizers with fresh, chewy pita bread were enormous and delicious. We all loved our entrees too. My friend's chicken fatteh was scrumptious. My meal was one of the nicest felafel sandwiches I've eaten. Our iced teas and my mint tea were great too.
What a gem. I never thought I could find this kind of food in downtown Cleveland. Lebanese food at its very best. Service was knowledge and friendly. Will definitely go back on my next trip to Cleveland. Last time I had Lebanese food this good was in London.
We have dined at Taza twice and both meals were memorably delicious. The service and the ambience are impeccable and very welcoming and the food is just extraordinary. We celebrated our son's 21st birthday st Taxa and returned with him and his roommates to inaugurate his senior year.
We were in Cleveland for one night while on a road trip and wanted to eat somewhere good after 10 hours on the road. Taza had good reviews and the menu sounded great. We were so happy we chose Taza. We sat outside as the weather was perfect. Claire was our delightful and knowledgeable server. The food was amazing! The baba ganoush was to die for with a subtle smoky flavor. Hummus and spicy hummus both delicious. The falafel was prepared to perfection: crispy on the outside and light and very flavorful on the inside. We live in Boston and I have not found anything nearly this good. The vegetarian feast in the appetizer section could be a meal for two people along with a salad or one other dish; servings are very generous. If I didn't live 10 hours away I would be here frequently!
The garlic spinach was ok but too salty. The Mujadara lentil dish was bland. The Samakeh Tajin salmon was well-prepared but also bland and the sauce didn't have a good flavor. Maybe it's a traditional Lebanese sauce that I'm not used to. The rice served with the salmon was tasty. Maybe we should have stuck with the more traditional shawarma or kabob dishes. The staff was friendly and attentive.
Taza's food was delicious and authentic with plenty of vegan options. My only complaint was the slow almost non-existent service. Our server was very nice, but not able to check on us for refills and took forever to take our order. I'd blame it on the number of customers, but it was a slow night and they had plenty of servers.
I just love this place. Food is delicious and reasonable. The service is warm and friendly but professional; it feels like a more upscale dining experience then the menu prices indicate. This was the first place we ate when we toured colleges for my son 5 years ago, and the last place we ate, his graduation dinner.
I love Taza for lunch. Last time, I was there the server was exceptional and was able to make great suggestions to try something new and was very attentive. This time, the server just pointed us straight to the most expensive thing on the lunch menu when we asked for suggestions. She was also not very attentive and the manager kept having to ask her to get us bread, water, boxes, etc. It was not as great as previous experiences, but the food is exceptional and the ambiance is outstanding. This one off experience will not stop me from coming back.
First time visiting the downtown location. There were only 2 other people in the whole place. Server was fairly absent and never asked how our meal was. Lamb was requested "medium" and arrived as "well done" and then some. Not sure what the chef would have been preoccupied with. We have been very happy with both service and food at the Woodmere location. But I doubt that we'll return to this downtown location.
We really enjoyed Taza during our recent visit to Cleveland. My husband and I shared the Tour of Lebanon Vegetarian Feast. It was incredible. I think that was the best hummus I've ever had. Although I really didn't need anything else, we had already ordered the Mixed Grill I, which was also wonderful, especially the lamb and the pilaf. If we are ever back in Cleveland, we will definitely go back!
