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.

  • Good experience/ambiance- disappointing entree
    MrCRM79
    Dined on 11/15/2014
    My wife and I visited Mezzo this past Saturday night (11.15.14). While we were satisfied overall with our experience (i.e., solid service, drinks/appetizers tasty and well presented), I was very disappointed with my entree. I ordered the braised-short rib special and it was overdone to the point of toughness. One would expect a braised short rib to be fork tender and not necessitate the heavy-handed use of a steak knife. Not sure what happened, but it was a real miss. Because we were on limited time, I did not send the meal back-- though I wish I would have. I was even more disappointed when my bill came and I noted the $30 price tag for such a so-so entree special. I think (or at least I hope) that this kitchen can do better.

    As a long time Dublin resident, I knew of this place but had never been inside. My high-end eating tends to be business-related and it was true this night as well as I met with a colleague around 8pm here. It exceeded my expectations - felt like a swanky east coast restaurant with all the decor and hustle/bustle of a happening place (on a Tuesday night!). Pricing was accordingly similar to such places - by no means a bargain and this is the place either to splurge with friends or your sweetie or generally where cost is a non-factor (ca. $18 for many 'core' entrees, $5-6 beers, $7+ glass of wine) - not exorbitant - unless you arrive with unrealistic expectations! Seems like the outdoor area would be superb - cold/rainy on this night.

    This is a reliably good restaurant if you're looking to dine in historic downtown Dublin. Beautiful atmosphere, good service, and excellent food. Personally I prefer the steaks and seafood to the Italian dishes. I had the filet which came with asparagus and choice of potato as well as steak topping. I chose the truffle fries which were delicious -- delicate and lightly golden brown. I had a very similar meal a few days prior at Tucci's which is a few doors down and it could not compare in taste or quality to what I got at Mezzo's. Excellent choice for a business dinner or an upscale night out.

    We sat in the bar to watch the football and as always the food and service were very good, my only complaint, they charge to split plates which really is annoying and they don't tell you that when you order just slip it on bill...I really do find that annoying

    The food was outstanding. Our waiter was a very nice but a bit too quick. I think he was trying too hard to be efficient. I was still eating my entree when he was offering my husband, who had finished his meal, the dessert menu. We were asked to complete a Yelp review on their new entree which I do not think is in good taste for an upscale restaurant. Other than that we enjoyed dining at Mezzo yet again.

    My girlfriend and I celebrated our first year anniversary. It was excellent experience. My girlfriend got her flowers as well from the company I ordered through opentable. Thank you so much! The service was wonderful and fast. Our waiter respected us well by leaving us alone and checked on us once or twice so we focused on each other. I'll go there again next year for the anniversary.

    Mezzo. Always impressive. When you book a table at Mezzo, you know you are going to have a terrific meal. And once again I was not disappointed. From the moment you walk in, you are welcomed by staff that are happy to see you, and genuinely happy to be there themselves. The menu is always evolving, and that's a good thing. You will definitely remember an amazing dish you had the last time you were there, but you will find a new favorite every time you sit down! The servers are not only knowledgeable about the menu, but also so much fun to talk to. They interact with you at the table, but always know just the right amount. Mezzo always reminds me of an upscale restaurant you would find in Manhatten.

    Mezzo is a Dublin Ohio staple. Have eaten here many times and the food is always consistently wonderful. They have a great bar where they often have live music and also have wonderful outdoor seating for the warmer months. I love the house salad with quinoa…amazing. I often get an entree order of it. They are a bit light on vegetarian food but I do enjoy the eggplant dish as well. Tuesday is 1/2 price bottle of wine night…not to be missed!

    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.

    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!

    We came during one of the restaurant weeks and ordered off of the regular menu. The food was good, however, we ordered the ribeye special and found the cut to be smaller but more expensive than we've had at similar steakhouses in Vegas, NY & LA. The flavor was good, but probably didn't warrant the price.
