This wonderful restaurant has never served up a disappointment. When dining, I am very particular and I can be very critical. In the years I have been dining there I have found everything spot on. First, the seafood dishes are magnificent. Unlike many restaurants that buy pre-cut and portioned fish, Mazen buys whole fish and fillets them in the kitchen.... More

A bit pricey but great food and service. The fried asparagus with jumbo lump crab meat is fabulous. Also grilled tuna and crab creeps are delicious. Every thing I have eaten has been wonderful. Martini's are great too!

This is a 5-star restaurant. The owner is an expert and a real gentleman. This is one of the high quality places to eat in Louisiana if not the south. The menu is fantastic, the service is great. The waitress knew her job very well. The price fits the quality and the service. We started with the crab crepe, my... More

My personal favorite so far is Fish Florentine, but we have yet to experience a dish here that is less than perfect. Seriously. Warm, comfortable ambience, unobtrusive, efficient, professional service, and a soufflé that you will wish your taste buds could photograph. Just go.

Love the atmosphere and the attentive staff, but it is the incredible food that keeps us coming back. Always consistently fresh and delicious. They even let you take their chocolate soufflé filled ramekins home to bake at your convenience then return the ramekin later! Love everything about the restaurant and the food!

We visit family frequently in Lafayette. Over the years, we have had the opportunity to enjoy many of the finest restaurants in town. Consequently, I find it inconceivable that Mazen’s is not ranked higher than 15th on TripAdvisor. We dined there on December 27 and were – once again – blown away. The food and service were impeccable. Owner and... More

I had been eager to visit Mazen Grill after hearing all of these people talking about the place. I was very disappointed after the meal as the prices are very high for the quality of food. The Mediterranean Shrimp appetizer was floating in so much butter that you could not taste any of the Mediterranean spices in the dish. My... More

Just ok, but worth the visit as the service has to be one of the best in town and the presentation was spot on from a waitress. The steaks are good and once again the presentation was outstanding, but quality was average as far as the rib-eye was concerned. I will be back to try the seafood, as mentioned this... More
