Excellent flavors! Each was distinctly flavored and very tasty. I will be sure to stop here on visits to this area. Attentive service also.

I would say that this place is Lebanese but I guess they prefer not to be pigeon holed, especially with Bacchus only just a block away. Although we have been here about half a dozen of time, the place is so unassuming we kept forgetting about it. And that is a crime because we have loved everything we have tried... More

A lunch that is tasty and light on the calories. My all time favorite is the Beef Kafta Sandwich Plate. Its delicious to taste, the ground beef seasoned full of flavor and cooked perfect, wrapped in a thin pita, stuffed with LTOP, and dressed with an amazing sauce - the tahini sauce. Along with a side of grilled vegetables, french... More

LaZeez is one of my favorites for both meeting a friend and for carry out. My absolute fav is the lentil soup - different from most, light and lemony. Often I get the soup and hummus with BLZ chicken for carry out lunch. When I dine in the appetizer sampler is great - love the fava beans. Also always like... More

Wonderful service, extremely delicious food. Best hummus I've ever had, let me tell you! Just stumbled upon this place wandering around looking for somewhere to eat one night. Our server -god i wish i could remember his name- was extremely accomodating and friendly. A quiet location away from the bustle of downtown nearby. Outdoor seating a definite plus. Lovely evening,... More

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
