“A great surprise”
Reviewed 10 February 2013

Just passing through Stoughton for lunch. Quickly checked TripAdvisor and saw some really good reviews so we decided to stop. Not crowded, cute inside. My husband had the Mussels in Creamy Garlic Sauce--BEST mussels he has ever had! I had the Pulled Pork Nachos--huge portion and absolutely delicious.

“Stoughton's Best Kept Secret”
Reviewed 24 December 2012

I'm embarrassed to say that I have driven by Laz Bistro dozens of times but never stopped because I really didn't know anything about them. Through Trip Advisor, their name kept coming up and the glowing reviews really caught my eye. I pulled up their web site and looked over the menu... and immediately called friends to meet me there for dinner. Our reservation was at 5:30 on a quiet night in Stoughton (no shows at the Opera House). We were seated right away. They have a nice long bar, so if you go on a busy night, there is sufficient room for waiting. Mixed drinks were poured well - no skimpy measured pours here! Our waitress was extremely friendly, and knowledgable about all of their menu items. We started with the Homemade Kettle Potato Chips - a meal in itself, generously covered in melted blue and jack cheeses. Two of us opted for the 1/2 rack of their signature "Kansas City style" ribs. It held up to all the positive reviews, and so did the sides (the BBQ beans with apple and pecans were a huge hit!). One companion ordered the Fettuccini Puttanesca, and her request to substitute a wine/garlic/herb sauce for the red sauce was accommodated without hesitation. Another companion ordered the Thai Chicken Coconut Curry Stew, and said she could have eaten it all night, it was THAT good. When it was time to leave, we were already planning our next visit to Laz. We can't wait to go back. I had no idea there was anything this good in Stoughton!

“Nicely done”
Reviewed 20 November 2012

Like another reviewer, we had to sit at the bar because every table was reserved before a concert at the opera house. The food was very good with friendly service. The bar was comfortable. It was enjoyable.

“Stylishly Cool for a small town”
Reviewed 16 March 2012

Great food, decent prices and a friendly environment. The chairs aren't so comfortable, but they are trying to fit quite a few in a smallish place. Try the smoked pork!
