Overall my experience was nice. I had a reservation at 6:30pm. The table was ready and the server was very attentive. Unfortunately, I found the restaurant extremely hot, so uncomfortable I was feeling faint. I finally did ask if they could turn down the heat and they immediately opened the door (February) which was great. The spicy chicken was okay, too much garlic; the falafels were delicious. Overall a nice date night out.

Have eaten here many times before. Had reservations but the table was not ready and the place was relatively empty. Food was good but didn’t wow us like in the past. I believe complacency has arrived at this restaurant.

The overall experience was great. Food at MAZAAR is wonderful. The service at the beginning was great as well, but the speed of service got way too slow towards the end. We didn’t even see our waitress anywhere for a while and then she would show up.

This was our first visit to Mazaar and it was fantastic. All of the food was excellent, but the Hummus was amazing. The atmosphere was perfect for a date night out. We will definitely be going back there again!

The food was fresh, well balanced and a delight. I wouldn’t recommend it to a family with a small child since they did not have a children’s menu, but for two adults enjoying a romantic dinner, beyond expectations.

This was our second visit to Mazaar with our same friends. The food again was amazing. Probably the best Lebanese food I have eaten. We had the feast that 3 of us shared. The 4th guest ordered the Shish Kebab Duo. We experienced excellent and attentive service by both servers and the food was prepared as ordered and served hot with no delay. The quiet atmosphere was conducive to good conversation and we did not feel rushed. We had an excellent experience and will be back next time we visit Windsor!!

Our waiter was awesome - made some great recommendations and gave us great service.
Food was excellent. We have come to expect great food here and Mazaar’s never disappoints. Great wine selection as well. Our waiter overhead we were celebrating my guest’s birthday and surprised us with a delicious complimentary dessert to mark the occasion. Another great meal at Mazaar’s!

Our waiter was extremely busy. Our food came out just as we got our wine. Things should be better paced. We had to wait a long time for our bill. We went on a Saturday evening so it's expected to be busy. The only negative part of our visit.

Made reservations, table wasn’t ready. Once we sat down, no one came to get drink orders for 10 min. No one asked if we would like another alcoholic drink, when asked for more water, they never brought any. With so many staff walking around, it seemed they were catering to the larger tables and forgetting the smaller ones. Food was great. Staff were friendly just not attentive at all.

Fantastic service and delicious as always! The waiter even brought out a birthday dessert on the house which I thought was a very kind gesture! You don't get that kind of service very often.

We dined here based on a stellar recommendation and we were not disappointed. We were a group of 9 people and shared various appetizers including garlic dip, hummus, calamari. The pita bread was the best I have ever had. One of our group is gluten free so the waitress brought her some vegetables to have with the dip. For our main courses we had beef or shrimp dishes, all delicious. A few people found their main course a little too spicy but still enjoyable. The décor was much more upscale than I had expected. All in all, a great dining experience and I would not hesitate to eat here again next time I am in Windsor.

Excellent service and food with nice live jazz. The manager was very accomodating as we wanted to hang out longer outside without the jazz to talk more over some drinks. I am not sure who likes those tall tables outside, but considering that I have never seen anyone picking them unless they had no choice...get rid of them and just have normal height tables. That's minor pickyness as they created a normal table for us outside. Food is great, but the service is awesome...highly recommended!

Everything was just ok. The dinner for 2 used to have 3 meats and vegetables. Not as good as it used to be. We barely started our appetizers and our entree was on the table.

Great place to go for dinner, whether it be with friends or for a romantic evening. I ate indoors and the dim lighting set the mood nicely, but outdoors would have been pretty as well with the overhanging lights. The restaurant is also a few blocks from Riverside so that’s a plus!

Our waiter was really polite and our food got to us in good timing. Everything was delicious! My only critique food-wise is that the rice was ever so slightly dry for me, albeit delicious still!

Overall, I recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for a good place to eat some Middle Eastern food in Windsor!

We have been to Mazaars downtown a number of times. We have loved it every time, which is why we come back, of course. This time -- this past Saturday evening (July 6, 2019) was just the best! Anna was our server. Other young men, including the manager, came by and checked on us -- all good, all pleasant. And the music -- Theodore on saxophone is the REAL DEAL -- was absolutely beautiful. So . . . everything to commend; nothing to criticize. Please keep on keeping on. You people are wonderful!!!
