Diner Reviews
  • "My husband has a very discerning palate and we hardly ever eat out because he "could make it better at home", but this meal he called his first perfect meal at a restaurant--his highest praise."

  • "A few months prior to our tip to this restaurant, we visited another restaurant owned by the same owner and was very displeased with the extreme amount of time it took us to receive our food. However, we decided to give Mezzanote a chance for Valentine's Day since it has been around for a while... again, we weren't impressed. We waited a long time for the server to greet us and each course took a long time to get to us (but this was all tables I noticed, not just us)- in total it took us 2 and a half hours for dinner. The food was good but not enough for me to return; I like prompt service and this just didn't hit the mark for me."

  • "Great service & scrumptious food! You've got a customer in me! Thanks for the experience!"

  • "the food was not bad, but was mediocre at best. the Anti-pasta was really good but the calamari was ok but a serving for one. I had the balsamic chicken and the vinegar overwhelmed the dish. two in our party had the sea bass and would not order it again in the future. the Veal Ravioli was good according to one person who got that dish. bottom line was 5 people, so-so food and almost $300 bill leave a less than favorable impression. probably won't go back."

  • "Friendly service with some great deals and very flavorful dishes. We have always enjoyed our meals at Mezzanote and highly recommend the restaurant. Try their Branzino fish dish whenever available."

  • "We picked one of the coldest nights of the year to stray from our usual pre-concert dinner at the Hotel DuPont and walk down the street to Café Mezzanotte. Good idea. We had a delicious dinner, highlighted by a silky sea bass entrée. Will definitely return."

  • "It was quiet because we had a 5 pm reservation and the restaurant opened at 5 so we were the only patrons for the first 30 minutes. The restaurant was cold inside, otherwise the atmosphere was fine. The salmon was dry and had no flavor. The crabcake was ok except it fell apart and was difficult to pick up with a fork. There were no vegetables, just a bed of arugula and I already had a spinach salad and wasn't interested in more greens. My husband's serving of tiramisu was broken in half. The waitress said "The first piece is the hardest to get out." Then the first piece or any broken piece shouldn't be served."

  • "We visited the restaurant for the first time before a show at The Grand. It was fabulous!!!!! We are planning on a return visit!"

  • "My lunch was very good and an excellent value. For $9, my soup and pasta was a lot of well seasoned food. My dining partner's soup and salad with salmon was also a large portion. Both of us said that we enjoyed our meals."

  • "A good menu with wonderful daily specials. All four meals we ordered were wonderful, especially the seafood. The Sea Bass was excellent."

  • "Once a year, myself, my daughter and my niece visit the DuPont Theatre for a play and we always ( past 7 years) book a reservation for lunch and then do the Wednesday matinee at the theatre. Look forward to it each time."

  • "I had the lunch special-half panini with salad. It was very good but the salad was very small- about 4 bites. I would have liked a little more. My mother had the chicken parm. Delicious! But the chicken was tough. Shouldn't have to saw through a chicken cutlet with a steak knife. I have eaten here a few times before and the same problem persists. The service is Very Slow. I thought lunch service would be faster. If you are trying to attract people who are on their lunch hour, you won't. Takes too long."

  • "4 of us girls enjoyed ourselves, having very good dinner. Food was tasty, service attentive. Next time I will insist on having the table far from the bar because people there were very loud. Overall this is a good place to stop by before your play."

  • "This was our 2nd visit to Cafe Mezzanotte. On our 1st visit the place was very quiet with only 2 other tables occupied. This time we were the only 2 in the restaurant during the dinner hour on a Saturday night! Wierd. The salads we had were served promptly and were crisp and good although sparce - just greens and cheese. I ordered a seafood "special" that included grilled salmon, scallops & shrimp & my husband ordered Fettucini Bolognese. Entrees took a LONG time to come out - with only two people to serve, how could they be slow in the kitchen?? My fish was so over cooked I could not eat it. Our waiter had found other things to do (football game?) reappearing when my husband had finished to ask if the meals were good. Too late!!"

  • "Nicely appointed dining area with table setting with eye appeal. Had salad, and pasta dish and a tartufo for dessert. Everything was tasty, service good. Great recommendation from the Wilmington Courtyard which is a three minute walk to Mezzanotte."
