  • I'm pretty picky about Lebanese and I haven't had a good run with ordering food downtown. I can say honestly this was my first meal that wasn't awful. The salad was fresh and crisp. The chicken shawarma was hot and tasted great. The person on the phone was helpful and accommodated my extra requests. Delivery was fast. If only every place could be like this.

  • Order: Fatoush Salad, Chicken Shawarma Extra Garlic Sauce.

  • There is always a lot of buzz about this place but it's definitely not my 'go-to'.

    I find that the portions are really quite small for the amount you charge. Whereas a lot of other places readily do substitutions, they act like it is a huge deal and they are doing you a big favour if they do it.

    The hummus is pretty bland but the pitas are AMAZING. I generally have a sore stomach after I eat here, which may be preservatives or something in the food..who knows.

  • Order: Hummus, Fattoush, Spinach pie, Falafel

  • I'm a food critic, and a great trained cook, I go out to eat every night of the week, so when my girlfriend, Nadia, said lets try this place I was ready to go. My girlfriend and I walked, and we were seated immediately the service was fantastic. The waitperson was very attentive and informative, on all of the different types of food that was served here..
    We started out with the hummus appetizer, and a couple glasses of wine .The serve freshly baked pita bread, and it was grrreatttt. We shared the salad and it was amazingly perfect, just what I would have expected from such a fine eating establishment. We also shared the large chef platter, and the entrees were hot and plentiful. This place is a keeper.

  • Interesting comments regarding price versus quality. I have been to quite a few Arabic cuisine eateries and have to agree with the sentiment that the food is a little pricey but I think the quality is excellent. If you want copious amounts of food, head to a buffet. The service on both occasions was adequate. It can be noisy when crowded.

  • Order: Lamb chops, Mixed grill platter which comes with salad and hummous

  • Mazaar really captures the delicate art of fine Lebanese cuisine. I've never tasted more succulent, flavouful shish kabob in my life. The only disapointment I had was the prices and the portion sizes. The price you pay is for quality.

    I highly recommend this restaurant. Had I a better income I'd make a point of trying everything on their menu.

    The food is so good I thought to myself "I must bring my entire Lebanese family here to try it out". Because it is so expensive, though, I'll just go there for special occasions (and I'm glad I've found such a nice place for that).

  • Order: Spinach salad, shish kabob, lemon tilapia

  • The food and service here is wonderful. The only complaint is that it is a little pricy for the same thing that I can get at other lebanese restaurants for cheaper.

  • Order: Salad, Main, Fatoosh,

  • I'm a bit of a food snob, and I love to cook. So I might over analyze this a bit. Our server was fantastic. She was bubbly, attentive and informative.
    We started out with the Hummus Extra - with steak tips. I'd skip it. I thought it was a waste. The hummus was very bland, and the steak tips were very small. The pita bread, that the server raved about, was also disappointing to me. It was good at first, when it immediately arrived at our table. But it very quickly became very dry and yucky - think about the way that bread tastes if you've microwaved it too long. I think they must have microwaved it to warm it up or something. ick. The fattoush salad on the other hand was amazing. The best I've ever had, hands down. The rest of the chef's platter, and the entrees were all delicious. The meat and rice were cooked and seasoned perfectly. Very good overall. The drinks were good, and came quickly, I can't complain about that. The only other thing I took issue with, was the restrooms. They were run down, and the women's door didn't lock. My friends and I were both barged in on. I don't get to dine out all that often. I love to cook and it takes a very excellent restaurant to draw me out of my cave. That said, I'd go back. Ciao

  • Order: Hummus with Steak Tips, Fattoush, Tenderloin Shish kabob, Shish tawook, Spicy Sojok Sausage & Lamb Manssaf

  • Liked the food, both items I had were good. If I could fault anything it would be the service. I got the impression our waiter was really trying to impress a table of patrons for one reason or another. I will go back however.

  • Order: lamb chops, stuffed grape leaves
