Best Fish and service in Acadiana

This is one of my favorite restaurants when I visit family in Lafayette. NO ONE has better fish and puts out more quality food. The service is always great and I've never had a bad meal there. The duck and steak are also excellent! Great wine list too.

I've been here several times with my family & friends and have yet to be disappointed with anything. The atmosphere is quiet & classy, the food delicious, & the service wonderful. Hummus for appetizer, steak for dinner, & the scrumptious creme brûlée for dessert is a must! I'm having dinner here tomorrow evening and cannot wait!

Atmosphere, service and food.....Incredible! Everyone had a different appetizer and we shared so everyone could sample everything. Not one complaint! Wine list was impressive. Meals were great, but it was hard to know at first, since no one was talking, everyone just kept eating bite after bite! Service was great as well, felt like we were the only customers!! Must...

Been a while since we have eaten here. Very nice atmosphere. PROS: the young blond lady that waited on us was very nervous--but she was polite, professional and a pleasure to discuss choices on the menu. I had the grill fish with lump crabmeat on top, adn my wife had the crab finger special. Both dishes were well prepared and... More

Everything was great from the food to our server, Albert. Would definitely go back again. The server made some recommendations that we went along with. The food selections were fabulous. The wine my husband drank was smooth. The bread pudding was warm and delicious. It was enough for two people to share. The experience was delightful.

I rented the conference room for a business dinner on the recommendation of one of my physician partners. The best summation comes from one of my Texas docs who said - "the fish would have been good if they just left it alone." Everything was pretty much covered in sauce or drowned in butter.

I do not write reviews often unless I am extraordinarily impressed or disappointed: this is the first time I have EVER revised a previous review. I recently returned to Mazen's where I quietly sat in the bar area as I had been at the hospital all day and was not dressed as properly as I would feel comfortable in this... More

Wow, why aren't there more reviews of this place? What a great meal. All three of us had grouper, prepared in two different styles--Barataria and Della. Both styles were delicious. Fish was cooked perfectly and the two different sauces, both with lump blue crab, were executed flawlessly. Service was fast, efficient, and extremely friendly. The owner visited each table to...

Magen's Grill has consistently been the best in fine dining in Lafayette. Our personal favorite is the 2 petite Filet Mignon topped with lump crab meat and 2 sauces. The 3 wine reduction sauce is amazing. We love the romantic setting and superb service. And of course Gus (owner) is always available to greet you and make you feel special.

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
