Rezaz Mediterranean Cuisine Ratings and Reviews
Waitress insisted on "coursing our meal" ...
Waitress insisted on "coursing our meal". It failed . We waited almost an hour for our meal after ordering. The paella was poorly executed with tiny bay shrimp, punched scallops, and five little pieces of andouille sausage sliced thinner than my credit card. The dish was served on a frying pan and the five small mussels were dried out. My wife's marinated skirt steak was good. No harissa humus, the smoked eggplant humus was inedible loaded with liquid smoke. The red pepper humus was good. Upon leaving the hostess was engrossed with her cell phone, no thank you nor goodnight. And they never mentioned our anniversary which was included on our Zooey Table reservation. Save your time and money and go elsewhere.

Having eaten at Rezazs many times in the last 10 years, I was extremely disappointed in the recent changes in the food quality and overall experience.
Not only was the lobster bisque Thin and salty it was made much worse by being remarkably fishy. The osso bucco while tender was virtually flavorless and the desserts were remarkably poorly executed.
Throw in a few glasses of marginal quality wine and a couple of hundred dollar meal became quite disappointing.
After speaking with one of the waiters it appears as if there is new ownership in place and somehow some bad decisions must of been made with food quality, staff, wine list, etc. I hope they find their way as this was once one of the best restaurants in Asheville .

We had dinner at Rezaz on New Year's Eve and loved it! The service was excellent, very professional and fun at the same time. The food was excellent. We had a wonderful time and highly recommend this restaurant. We will be back!

Four of us were dining. Menus were presented as well as specials. Two of us wanted Lamb Chops and then waiter came back to tell us they were out of them. Probably need to make waiters more aware of what is available before they describe something that the kitchen knows is not available. Lamb shank as substitute was pretty good. Wine list is good and reasonably priced. Two others both got the fish special and they like it very much. The appetizer rezza mezza was very enjoyable and is enough for 4 so long as they bring you extra pita. Overall a very enjoyable dinner and one of the better restaurants in Asheville.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Rezaz! We love Mediterranean food, and Rezaz did not disappoint. We had the olive starter, lamb platter, and Green Fettoush salad. We also had the brussels which were some of the best I've ever had! SO good!!

always a favorite. I never go there that i don't order the calamari and shrimp appetizer. A little spicy, a little sweet, a little crunchy with the napa cabbage - just a great combo. All dishes are great, have never had a bad meal. I would say that the bone marrow needs a touch of seasoning and perhaps a slower roast to develop the flavors a bit more. Nonetheless, still always a great bet!

We had not been to Rezaz's since the owner sold it to his employees. We were very very happy that the quality and overall experience were just as amazing as when we had visited in the past.Our server (Jonathan K) was great, and very helpful. I had the sea scallops which were cooked to perfection, and my husband had lamb shank, which he devoured. Since it was my birthday, we each were served an amuse buche of a succulent shrimp on a horseradish based sauce...to die for! Then, afterwards, we each got a handmade truffle. A truly delightful Birthday celebration!

Had a last minute guest that the hostess gladly accommodated. Andrea our server was outstanding and went out of her way to make my son's birthday special, attentive but didn't hover. Food and wine were all excellent. Among all the great restaurants in Asheville, Rezaz continues to excel, bringing a broad array of Mediterranean dishes that are both creative and cooked to perfection. The lamb shank was especially tasty.

Rezazz is consistently one of the best restaurants in asheville. Our friend had the mussels which were excellent. I had the brisket which was excellent except that is could have been hotter. I had it a week earlier and it was just right. The atmosphere is very warm and inviting. We always have excellent service. We recommend Rezazz to our friends often.

My husband had the special - Snapper on a bed of risotto with large shrimp. It was both beautifully played and delicious. I chose the smoked duck breast with broccoli I and a potato latkes. I love duck but never had tried it smoked. Interesting twist. The sauce was delicious, wish there had been a tad more. The latkes was too thick and too dense.
Texas has been a favorite of ours for years. The updated decor is welcome and comfortable and the staff is always tip top.

Rezaz always leaves such a great impression! This was a dinner with a friend, but I've taken many out of towners here and they have all raved about the food, ambiance and service. Laura and Brian, the owners, do an outstanding job of weaving contemporary cuisine with traditional Mediterranean dishes. From start to finish, it's a lovely meal.

We were looking for a special place for our family from out of town to celebrate the holidays and we were all very pleased with the menu, the ambiance, the quality and uniqueness of the food served and the service.
Thank you for providing a lovely place to dine.

As a celiac, I am required to eat only gluten free foods. This restaurant is very friendly and accommodating for anyone wanting gluten free foods. We were in a bit of a hurry since we were heading over to the Biltmore House for the evening Christmas display, and the staff really worked with us to assure that we were served quickly enough to enjoy the meal and get out on time. I had some of the best paella I have ever had - I highly recommend this item.

Never disappointed. Excellent service, exceptional food quality, ample serving size, appropriately priced, diverse and interesting menus options. Still our favorite go to. Parking is far easier than going downtown.

A group of friends gathered for lunch, and we were all very pleased with the food. My wife ordered the salmon Israeli bento box and I ordered the roasted vegetable Israeli bento box. The bento boxes provide an impressive array of exquisite flavors and textures. Rezaz is now our current lunch favorite in Asheville, which is a high endorsement, considering the choices available in our food-conscious town! We are looking forward to returning for lunch and dinner. Thank you, Rezaz, for the exceptional food, ambience, and friendly service.

Great lunch offerings. Rezaz bases its menu on Middle Eastern fare, but adds its own twists to the dishes. I spent 25 years in Israel, and my wife and kids were born there. We felt like we had flown home for a visit, while still being 7 minutes from our Asheville home. The lunch menu has very reasonable prices, especially for the portion size and great ingredients.

Incredible service! We were celebrating our 2nd anniversary. I notated this in my reservation and they sat us at the table we had our first date and said "this table may look familiar". It was an incredible gesture of just how much they care about their guests. The food was amazing just as it always is and our server was so incredibly attentive. This place will always have such an important part of our story and we will always keep coming back.

We went on a recommendation of a friend, and could not have been happier with the suggestion. The service was great, the food was delicious and we will definitely make a point to dine here again when we are in Asheville!
