Diner Reviews
  • "I have eaten here several times with my son and his family. The staff has always been friendly and accomodating. They are knowledgeable about the dishes on the menu and freely give advise when asked about the selections. The food is definitely gourmet but at moderate prices. The Tiramisou is worth saving some room for."

  • "Celebrated a romantic evening with my wife of 45 years, on the 50th anniversary of our first date. It was a memorable evening your waitress was excellent and accommodating. We will be back often"

  • "I've heard about how good this place was, so I was happy to finally make it there. Went with a group for Houston Restaurant Week on a Monday night and we had the place to ourselves. The food was fantastic, although the portions seemed a bit small (likely because it was the HRW menu). Definitely still great food (I had the Caprese salad, the filet, and a mini cannoli) and I plan on going back!"

  • "A friend and I went out to enjoy Restaurant Weeks and also to catch-up after not seeing each other for many months. Although the menus are more limited, there were several excellent choices for each course. I had the portobello appetizer, the lamb chops (which were cooked to perfection) and the very rich tiramisu. My friend had the lobster ravioli for her main, and was very complimentary. Noise level was perfect for conversation and service was attentive without being overbearing. When you live in Spring, a lovely place to have dinner without having to drive to Galleria or downtown."

  • "We visited here for the first time during HRW with another couple. Food, wine and service were great but it was quite warm in the restaurant. Otherwise, we enjoyed our evening."

  • "Haven't been in a few months because I moved to Pearland. Had business in the area (sort of), so went there to partake of the Houston Restaurant Weeks menu. The baked asparagus was a WOW, as was the filet. Nice way to spend an enjoyable evening with great food, a nice bottle of wine, and a good sax-man. The view of the patio out the window, with the cute kittens, added to the the enjoyment. Recommended!"

  • "We have been dining at Mezzanotte off and on for several years. The food here has always been great but the service has been very spotty. We decided to give the place another try as we enjoy patronizing local restaurants rather than chains. This time the service was poor! We had difficulty getting water and our waiter was always in the kitchen. We finally asked a bus boy to find our waiter and refill our wine and water glasses. We also had to ask for bread after our salad was served although it seemed everyone else got their bread shortly after they sat down. No dessert or coffee. The food was excellent. It may sound like I am picky but when you pile all these little things together, it spells poor service."

  • "Jerry, Adrianna and their staff have done it again. Exciting menu, well crafted beverages and crisp attractive presentation. The surf and turf was exemplary and the saucier did a spectacular job. Angela, our server, was prompt, attentive and deferential. No criticism here! We'll return soon."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our 43rd wedding anniversary at Mezzanotte and it could not have been better. The staff allowed me to stop by early and choose our table, and made sure that when we arrived, the roses and card that I had brought by were on the table, waiting for her. During the meal, the staff was attentive, but not overbearing. The meal was excellent. We will return."

  • "Service was fine but two of our dishes were poorly done. Seafood and veal was good but lasagne and spaghetti dishes were poorly seasoned and not recommended. Caesar salad and pasta dish on an earlier visit were also poorly done."

  • "First let me start by saying our server was phenomenal...but that's as far as it went for "good" at Mezzannotte. We are recent Cypress-ites, moving from inside the loop--which we have found to be an issue for our taste buds now that we are in Cypress! The restaurants in Cypress have time and again, been disappointing. My husband ordered the wedge salad--the dressing had soured!!! It was truly SOURED!!! My lasagna tasted like it had been frozen and reheated, it lacked flavor and was served so hot that you couldn't even begin to eat it for several minutes and my husbands pasta sauce tasted about like what you would get out of a jar. The concept is nice, but the food does not perform."

  • "We really enjoyed our evening here. The atmosphere is upbeat with unique art on display and vibrant colors. The service was wonderful. Our food was excellent, from my linguine seafood del mar to husband's lasagna and daughter's vodka penne. Wonderful salads. Side bar - if you like strong drinks this may be just the place for you. A woman next to us asked her waiter to send her dirty martini back because it was too strong. Don't here that very often. The bartender couldn't have been nicer to her and quick to fix the problem."

  • "Joined with our family for a Mothers Day Brunch. Very nice selections with the set 3 course menu. The filet and eggs, sole, and cheesecake were favorites in our group. Nice touch adding bloody Mary's and mimosa's to the special offerings. "

  • "I took my wife there for Mother's Day Lunch. Although we had eaten there once before, it had been several years ago and I didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent and the service was attentive without being overbearing. The serving sizes were correct, so we didn't feel stuffed when we were through dining, but we felt as though we had eaten enough. My wife was presented with a rose for Mother's Day, a nice touch. We will definitely return, next time, with friends."

  • "Food and service were exceptional as usual. We particularly like the entertainment provided by Kevin Weisharr--his selection of primarily Sinatra and Buble is perfect for this restaurant!"

  • "Terrible service takes a long time for food to come out and then it's cooked incorrectly. Wanted to charge a $10 cake cutting fee for her bday cake we brought in. Thanks for ruining a festive evening. Won't be back and won't recommend. Small restaurant trying to charge big restaurant prices."

  • "Who knew a lovely, Italian restaurant would be nestled in the corner of a neighborhood strip center?! We overheard people talking about Mezzanotte so decided to give it a try & were pleasantly surprised. The service was great, the wine selection quite nice and the menu delicious. My husband had the Caprese salad & I had the Wedge (which he finished & loved!). Then he tried the Veal Chop while I had the Osso Bucco and they were both wonderful! It seemed other patrons were regulars and they were greeted warmly by the staff. There was a nice, full bar positioned right in the middle which was almost full when we arrived. They had a singer that night who had a lovely voice (Frank Sinatra/Michael Buble type music). We will definitely be back!"

  • "We have dined at this establishment several times in the past though haven't been in awhile. I noticed when we arrived the place Saturday night it wasn't very crowed, not like in the past. The food took awhile to get to use and it was extremely small portions though the price on the menu reflected otherwise. The quality and taste of food was good but felt after the main course I just finished the appetizer. I think for the money I would rather go somewhere else where I felt I got more value."

  • "I went with a couple of friends, and it was our first visit to the restaurant. We loved ordering a lot of different tapas and sharing them. It gave us an opportunity to sample a wide variety of dishes the restaurant serves without having to commit to full portions. Just about every dish we tried we liked, and many that we loved. I can't wait until next time!"

  • "A perfect evening. The host made us feel welcome the second we walked in. Connor had a feel for our table from the start. The food was outstanding. A Rib eye that could give most steakhouses a run for their money. Made a spur of the moment dinner feel like I planned it for weeks. Thanks again!"

  • "Went here for Valentine's Day. The restaurant is well decorated and has a powerful yet relaxing ambience. The bar area is nice. Initially I did not see much on the Valentines menu. I ordered what I thought I would like and was well pleased. The food was fresh, well-prepared, well presented, and delicious. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly. I would definitely recommend this restaurant."

  • "My husband and I decided to try this restaurant for their advertised Valentines Day Dinner. $55 per person, 4 Course meal. Sounded like a pretty good deal even though we had no idea what the food being served would be so we made reservations. The ambiance of the restuarant was nice, good entertainment, and the wait staff were very attentive. Our biggest issue was that the portions served were minimal. The food served was OK, and we felt for that money that we were paying, we would have had a much nicer meal elsewhere. We won't go back or recommend to any of our friends. Sorry! Bring your prices down and portions up."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "While the food was good, it was overpriced. The service was good but we were given a table right at the kitchen door, which shouldn't have been there in the first place or traffic should be diverted. I don't like the feeling of wait staff breezing by me non stop while trying to enjoy my food."

  • "This was a terrific spot to enjoy lovely foodie items, enjoyed their assorted tapas menu, enjoyed a bottle of champagne. We brought our 8 year old boys, too, to get them out to see a nice restaurant and they were delightful young men enjoying our great neighborhood spot too. We love the Wednesday tapas menu and will return."
