This is a wonderful establishment run by the nicest people! We ate there in a rush one day and folks did the best the could to accommodate us. We had decided to go there for our next day's lunch and were able to work with the WONDERFUL owner to pre-order our lunch tapas-style. A dozen or so of us were... More

Excellent. Everything is fresh. Great atmosphere, you can go on a date or family event. It will not break the bank. Love this place when I want an excellent meal but trying to be healthy

Having a grandma that made kibbee for me as a child, I have always compared hers to any other. The first time I tried it at Laziza, I had to order more! And it's not just the kibbee, all of the dishes I have tried at Laziza have been great. I have never had a disappointing meal there. Another one... More

Even with a new waiter things went well. The only glitch was having to ask for bread with our salad. Wife had seafood pesto pasta and loved it as much this second time. This was my first steak here and it was perfect. We had a nice romantic dinner after they dimmed the lighting. Was the perfect birthday night out... More

I made reservations for my wife and I to celebrate our 28th anniversary. We arrived at the scheduled time and were seated immediately. I noticed that there was a large contingent of people in the upstairs loft area. It turns out it was a high school reunion. My wife and I had to sit through people yelling and laughing, (not...

We were in Kent, OH for about two weeks when we tried Laziza's in the downtown area. We LOVED the food. We travel extensively for work and this was one of the best Mediterranean/Lebanese Restaurants we have eaten at! The owner greeted us at our table, made us feel very welcomed and was a very nice man. We ended up... More

I was surprised to see this as #1 rated restaurant in Kent after the experience we had here. Maybe we caught them on an off day or when the regular cook was on vacation, but it was disappointing for sure. We took family out for a Birthday and thought this would be a good place to go. The service was... More

I was hear to meet someone and I was with a large group and we had a preselected menu since it was covered by the university. The staff is good and was attentive. I think it was the owner, he was rather rude to us leaving and his staff. Not good vibes there. Otherwise I got Chicken Shawarma and I... More

Nice atmosphere. Didn't need reservations. They sat me in the lower floor. The had a belly dancer on the upper floor but she never came down so missed out. Food was average but service was outstanding. Katrina the server was exceptionally attentive and very focused making sure my needs were taken care of. She seemed exceptionally mature for a sophomore... More
