It is delicious. The food and vibes were amazing I went today and they were just opening today and they will open an ice cream shop next few weeks I'm so excited I tried pistachio one believe me there is no ice cream like it. I highly recommend this restaurant.
We were looking for a "new Greek or Mediterranean Restaurant" and I remembered seeing reports that LEZIZ had opened. It poured rain all day yesterday but we had planned to go out with friends, so we went. This is the location of a previous Greek Restaurant- their banner is over the old sign while a new sign is being made. The place was pretty inside in blue and white - bright enough that I could even read the extensive menu. Having just been to Greece, Turkey and Israel- some items were familiar and some totally unique to Florida. We were surprised and delighted! We had forgotten to ask about drinks (they serve beer and wine) and were nervous when our server, Abraham said they had "red or white" and named a few variatals... we were nervous but then he brought out a real nice bottle of California Cabernet for the others and a great glass of Chardonnay for for me. Abraham was phenomenal all night long - and not just as we were the only patrons due to the rain and flooding. First, ice water service without asking, then he took drink orders ... I don't take that for granted anymore. The kitchen was spot on with all dishes coming out on sequence and together. We skipped the $29 cold appetizer platter (which would have been all spreads and salads as traditional like I just had in Israel) but instead enjoyed the complimentary Tzatziki dip and fresh warm pita. I had seen a photo of what they call their Lamacun Pizza- no cheese... but a flavorful ground lamb (and when they say spicy they do NOT mean "HOT" but "having used spices") - spread on the utterly stretched thin bread like you would find in Jordan or Turkey. "Three pieces" means THREE whole flats! The Shepherd's Salad was wonderful - vegatables were fresh and bright - Kabobs and Lamb and Beef blend Gyro slices were served on platters with sides that were not at all ordinary. I ordered Lamb sauté with Bulghur wheat which was tender and transported right back to The Med. We are a group that does not eat onions and each dish was made to order - without an onion to be found (except for a garnish on the "pizza" plate, which I forgave. ) This is a testament to everything being made fresh and to order. Not only was it affordable, way too much food and an absolutely perfect night - but fascinated by the connected "Ice Cream Cafe" - we HAD to try the "Snowflake Ice Cream". I can't even explain it- but our friend had the signature Pistachio one- I asked them to make me salted Carmel with Pistachios and almonds. Two words: Do it! I have lived in South Florida over 30 years and we eat out at least 3 times a week and had basically given up on the quest for a great new place. Leziz is THE REAL THING and it has a menu unique to any place I have dined in Florida. Do NOT mistake it for the old restaurant at this location - all they share is the address. And don't confuse this with a fast food sandwich shop just because you see Gyros and Kabob on the menu. Leziz Mediterranean is anything BUT ordinary. They had so much going for them with only 3 weeks open, I forsee them getting even better. I hope you love it like we did as we need to keep a great place like this around!!! I hope many others share our good experience and comment on it ... and not just take the time to only share bad experiences like most do. We'll see you there! * Google wouldn't let me share my photos but I will try to add later!* Vegetarian options: By nature of the cuisine, vegetarian should be able to enjoy a meal. NO "Beyond Burgers" just lots of natural vegetables and grains on the menu and a good Chef Parking: Strip mall location with lots of free parking Dietary restrictions: The server knew what was in each dish and the preparation and the kitchen was able to remove ingredients from dishes upon request
By accident my husband found this new restaurant. The menu was interesting and the food was prepared perfectly. Ana was our server who was super friendly. The braised lamb shank was delish and the lamb chops were flavorful! We will definitely go back again!!
Unique Mediterranean food with some great Turkish dishes. I recommend the lahmacun pizza if you want to try something new and exciting. Service was great and restaurant was clean and catered towards mid-fine dining. Parking is difficult as shared with other places. Overall a great dining experience and tasty for all ages.
The food and the ice cream was delicious. The staff was very friendly. I love being here and eating Turkish food.
I have been searching for a good Mediterranean restaurant, this place is it! We are from Queens NY and have a lot of experience with this genre of food. Highly Recommend giving this restaurant a try - you won’t be disappointed.
My family and I ordered the Turkish pizza and the mixed grill for two. Then we had the ice cream. Everything tasted very delicious. The Turkish pizza’s bread is so fresh and crispy and the meat on top tasted amazing. The mixed grill plate was beyond fresh all the meat options in it tasted spectacular. My favorite was the adna kebab. Also I highly recommend their ice cream super yummy.
Looks like a lot of bogus reviews here from the past two weeks. If I could give them minus 5 stars I would! Was there 2 hours, never receive any food, looked around the restaurant all the guests are waiting for food or walking out. No one came to check on us to bring more drinks or water or anything. Finally had to take my meal to go only to find out the potatoes are rotten and. Any even eat it. Most horrible experience I had in many years
Beware/ new owners took over about a week ago so all of these reviews are not for this new restaurant. The new owner is a good cook but does not know how to run the table side of the restaurant. They rarely knew which table to bring food to. Only one of the salads came out - we had to ask multiples times and after a long wait the second salad arrived. In our party , two entrees came out in a slow time frame but ok. The other two dishes were about half hour to forty minutes later. We were about to cancel the order. We asked for the bill, no discount was offered. We paid our bill and left. There are so many other choices, I would recommend not going to this restaurant until a few months have passed
