A word from Mezzo - Dublin
Mezzo translates to "middle" in Italian, and we like to think of the middle as finding a balance – between old-world tradition and new-world cuisine, between food and wine, between casual and sophisticated. Mezzo’s ambiance infuses modern fixtures and fabrics of terra cottas, reds and earth-tone yellows among natural woods and old world touches.

At Mezzo we believe in pursuing the uncompromising balance of Italian spirit and vibrant local flavor. Our menu reflects our passion for modern Italian cuisine utilizing local ingredients whenever possible. At Mezzo we hope to bring together a meal of subtle sophisitication, balancing simplicity and creativity to showcase all that we and our community have to offer.

Whether you are celebrating an event in our private dining room, or enjoying a romantic evening for two, we welcome you to Mezzo.

    It was my daughter's 19th birthday and her favorite restaurant was closed for the chef's vacation so she suggested we go to Mezzo as she had liked it the last time we were there. It did not disappoint. We started with sitting on the patio which was really nice and we had the cheese board and salads there. The wind whipped up and it started to rain; our very attentive server moved us indoors quickly. When our food arrived, my daughter's entree was in a "red sauce"...she is allergic to tomatoes and generally reads the menu carefully. Although we thought it was a pepper sauce, the server quickly asked her "to be on the safe side" and got her another entree as quickly as he could. Food was very good and it was quiet for a Saturday night.

    Mezzo is a very attractive restaurant with lovely dining both inside & outside. We chose the former due to the hot weather. Having been to Mezzo before, we were looking forward to another great experience. Our waitress was prompt & super-attentive. Unfortunately, the food was a bit under-whelming: certainly above average, but not up to the balance of the Mezzo experience. Given the light crowd for a Friday evening, one might have thought the manager would have stopped by to check on how we were enjoying Mezzo.

    The food, service, drinks, and atmosphere was great! I had heard about Mezzo for quite sometime and it definitely lived up to the hype. We sat outside, on the corner of the intersection, so the noise was expected but you are far enough from the road it isnt too distracting. I recommend Mezzo to anyone who wants great food and service.

    5th visit....3rd try in 90 days. Food/Drink is good enough in great location it should be full. Is NOT full due to bartender/servers general lack of training...a few great ones but the place sits under capacity all evening and it is not a food/drink/location/facility problem. Bartenders generally not attentive, not really aware of how a bartender builds a loyal following....servers a bit 'short' .... also, on average I get treated better by far when popping in after an event (in a suit) VS when I come in shorts and polo shirt.....is training or hiring issue by and large, or management. I NEVER do survey or comments but this place should be as full as the older/worse food/same block competitors.....and is not.

    Took a party of three there Sat nite. Food was so - so, ok but, not great. Limited menu items. Waiter only announced one special. He forgot to bring a second glass of wine that was ordered by one of our party. Patio was nice but, a little noisy. Also, disappointed beer was only bottled - nothing on tap.

    I took my girlfriend here for the second time to celebrate her promotion. The first time we were here, it was winter so it was very cold out; we wanted to come back to try the outside dining. We sat out n the patio across from Mr. Sushi and the experience was excellent! A little traffic noise but there was also a waterfall near our table that balanced that out well. The food was perfect, and the waiter was very engaging and polite. I can't wait to go back!

    The atmosphere at Mezzo is definitely the most notable positive attribute; it wasn't too loud but the restaurant had a great energy. They had a substantial wine list and the food quantity and quality was great. The service however was sub-par; it was one of those places where the waiter came to the table to check on us a lot but whenever we did ask for something that I would consider a “quick” request (drink re-fill, condiments, etc.) it would be 10 or 15 minutes before we saw him/her again. Overall I would recommend as a great place for drinks and appetizers but probably not dinner.

    We dined at Mezzo on a Friday night and it was quite busy. The atmosphere was upbeat and the wait staff were very attentive and friendly. The food was of high quality and plentiful. They had changed the menu from the last time we were there, which was at least a year or longer. So, I had some new choices to choose from. I'd definitely recommend Mezzo for special occasions.

    My husband and I just had a very enjoyable 34th Wedding Anniversary this past Friday evening. The service staff were so friendly and accommodating. This added to our pleasant evening, and the food choices we made were amazing. We started with the steamed Maine mussels. They were 100% better than the ones we had in Maine a week ago. Awesome, huge mussels. We both enjoyed our entrees and we topped off the meal with a fabulous dessert that was impossible to ignore. The chocolate bunt cake was like nothing I've ever had before. I can go on and on so I'll just say one last thing. It was a perfect evening with the perfect meal and the best wine, and ambiance. I can't wait to go back soon.

    My husband and I have dined at Mezzo many times, with friends and also just the two of us. The service has always been very good to outstanding, as was the case at our last visit. Our server was very knowledgable about wines and gave helpful information about the menu. I opted for the evening's special, a grouper plate. The grouper was somewhat bland, sorry to say. My husband was very happy with his blackened scallops which were perfectly prepared. We are happy to see that the menu has changed - perhaps to reflect the season.

    Food was fantastic. We loved the ambiance of the interior. We heard mix reviews about price of dinner but it wasn't bad for the good quality we had. I wish the wine list had more familiar brands. There was an odd smell as we walked in that was still there when we left. Good service too.

    Pleasantly surprised. Having read mixed reviews about food and ambiance, three of us enjoyed good food and good service. Sound level in lower bar level was really high but luckily we were seated in the upper level in a relatively quiet corner. Mussels appetizer very good, lasagna great, eggplant also very good. Complementary valet parking for the public parking area is a decided plus.

    My husband and I were in Columbus for a wedding and wanted to find a nice restaurant with good wine for Friday night. We were very pleased by the look and ambiance of the restaurant when we walked in - lots of activity but the noise level was not intrusive. The food is very good but the reason we were so impressed was that the bottle of wine we chose was just about to turn and was still harsh after a half hour or so. The manager, Leigh Fouts, was very gracious and took the wine away without question and gave us a full refund. She also offered us a dessert or glass of wine on the house but we decided that getting a refund was enough and paid for our own glasses of wine! Ms. Fouts made this a go-to place for us whenever we go back to Col

    Upstairs had a romantic not crowded feel. It wasn't empty but the seating arrangement was perfect because you couldn't see too many other couples from the booth we were in. The food was amazing! Best scalloped potatoes I've ever had! Steak was cooked just right and the pasta with pesto was perfect. Our waiter made a great gin martini and helped out with wine selection. Can't wait to go back to try out the outside deck!!!!

    Mezzo provided a near perfect evening. Our server was patient while our group of three ladies chatted for some time before placing our orders. He was attentive and pleasant without being too chummy and had a fun sense of humor. The food was delicious - my lasagna was so good - I was happy that the portion allowed me to take half home. The dessert tiramisu was truly the best I have ever enjoyed. I told the server that I want to be contacted if there are ever plans to remove it from the menu. Finally, the free valet service is such a perk. Dublin has a real gem in Mezzo!
