Yanni and his staff are exceptional. We went to Mazi for my wife's birthday and not having been to Washington DC, from Kirkland, Washington, I did my due diligence by reading the reviews and asking our hotel concierge. Also, as a kid my nickname was Mazi, so it was perfect. When we arrived, Yanni acknowledged my wife's birthday and showed us a great table. Jairon took over, suggested a great bottle of Chardonnay from Alexander Valley and the Seafood Pasta, which were fantastic. We enjoyed the ambiance, Yanni's hospitality and a great tiramisu as a birthday cake. My wife and I highly recommend Mazi restaurant.

Loved this restaurant. We had to wait a little bit to get seated but the manager noticed us waiting and bent over backwards to make us feel comfortable and taken cared of. He more than made up for the short wait. I had the seafood pasta and it was delicious. I would definitely go back next time I’m in DC.

First indoor lunch in 15 months did not disappoint. This is a higher-end Mediterranean/Greek establishment for an everyday lunch, but I was meeting someone from out of town and figured it's worth it. There were only two other tables with people, showing just how slow downtown DC really still is. We were seated and tended to promptly. The lunch menu - which required a phone scan - has a nice range of price-points, from lunch salads up to full plated meals. We chose lamb burgers on the waitress' recommendation, and they were delicious. The lamb was remarkably tender, juicy, and gently spiced. The bun was substantive enough to hold the burger together but also soft and chewy. Nice blend of textures. The fries were served fresh from the fryer with a generous salting.

We watched the owner be extremely rude and unnecessarily loud with the group of black women across from our table. Apparently they didn’t like one of the dishes brought out and the owner, who clearly had no manners, stepped out of the kitchen to loudly declare that the young women were embarrassing their chef and that it was impossible for them to not like the dish. My partners and I honestly couldn’t believe how rude he was being with no shame. On top of that the food *was* actually only decent. Excellent drinks, but our pork belly was fried entirely too hard. The chicken Alfredo wasn’t bad. Overall this place honestly wasn’t worth the poor ownership and the waiters also agreeing that their boss wasn’t very friendly after asking if that was the owner.

The food was very good, cooked to perfection, and the wine was good too. The only reason they don't get 100% is because they were out of the cocktail of the month and she never offered us dessert. Dessert isn't on the e-menu, and other patrons ordered some. We just got the check and left. But the staff were friendly, I would definitely go back.

There was a birthday party. The staff allowed patrons to wander from table to table around the restaurant maskless. The staff did not make an effort to correct this behavior. My steak was incredibly undercooked. It was not a pleasant dining experience. You can do much better for the price.

Open Table did not fail once again. The restaurant was just what we wanted, fresh and delicious not fussy. Beside the great food the waitress was great she was pleasant and cheerful and great at her job. During covid so many people are glum but not her and it was refreshing. The Greek salad was fresh and the feta perfect, the grilled chicken kebab and lamb chops were perfectly done as was the lamb burger. It was a wonderful find and we will be back.
