The food at Bistro Lazeez is delicious, no matter what you select from their ample menu. The restaurant is relatively small so it is quiet enough to have a normal conversation over dinner. The service is outstanding as the owner is always there, to welcome customers and to oversee the quality of the food. My favorite is the grilled lamb... More

Stopped in because of Trip Advisor. The decor is delightful. The service was superb. The appetizers were utterly delicious, and we enjoyed our sandwiches. For sure, we will be back.

Visited with six of our friends from LA - early in the evening (7PM). we had to try this as we lived in Middle East for 4 years, so we know a bit about the food. Menu is quite basic, Lebanese (or Eastern Mediterranean), with the usual stuff (humus, tabouli, falafel , shwarma, etc,,,). A nice mix of lamb/ chicken/beef... More

Bistro Lazeez never fails to please. This is probably my 8th visit to the restaurant --- not sure why I never reviewed it after seven earlier visits! It is a smallish restaurant tucked away in one of the quieter streets in the Bethesda restaurant district. It's modern decor with dark wood tables and greige walls lends an understated color palette... More

Walked past this place a few times and liked their outside seating. The outdoor seating was great. The wait staff were nice and the food pretty good. Their pita bread is fairly standard. Their salad was a little dull. The chicken dish was nicely tender, tasty and their rice well done. Pretty good although not outstanding. Reasonably priced.

Friends brought us to this little gem of a place for dinner. The salads are so delicious and the entrees are even better. The owner is so sweet and made sure we had a great time and meal. Well worth the price. True authentic Lebanese food!! A must try!!

In Bethesda lots of people head directly to the restaurants in the Bethesda Row section near the Landmark Theater, Barnes and Noble, and some interesting shops. It's a great neighborhood but parking is tight, the sidewalks get crowded and in reality most of the restaurants are chains and crowded. People that do this miss some hidden gems located about a...

We had a groupon for the restaurant and decided to give it a try. We had read reviews and had a good idea of what to expect, but our expectations were exceeded at every step. Charming decor, friendly staff, service on plates and dishes that had some panache, and great food, all prepared and served in an atmosphere that let... More

We went out with our friends to Bistro LaZeez on New Year's Eve. We selected our meals from a pre-set menu....tabouli and humus, salmon with Mediterranean polenta, filet mignon with roasted potatoes and ended with a pistachio ice cream...amazing - superb!

Shared a meal with my GF last night at Bistro and thought it was a very charming little restaurant. The food was excellent, especially the fattoush salad and the hummus. The wine list was reasonable. Wait staff were very attentive but not overbearing. Daniel was especially engaging and made the evening fun. There are many choices in Bethesda, this should... More
