    Mozelle's is fun. This tight vibrant space, hugging around the open kitchen, spurs conversation. A great place to bring out-of-town guests. And the menu continues to be fresh with a good wine selection. Its West End location is great as well. This is our go to, end of week neighborhood comfort spot.

    This is the second time I've eaten at Mozelle's, and hopefully it won't be the last. The food is always delicious, and caters to a wide variety of diets. The service is attentive without being overbearing, and it's quiet enough to carry on a conversation without having to shout. Absolutely wonderful, I will definitely be coming back.

    We celebrated a birthday dinner at Mozelle's because it has a menu item that the birthday lady really likes. She was not disappointed with the food nor was I but the service started out slowly as we sat for almost 15 minutes before being approached by our server. After this slow start, everything went well and everyone enjoyed their meal as the food was delicious.

    Our favorite Winston restaurant. Small and limited seating. We drive from Greensboro so it's a 60 mile delight. The tomato pie is exceptional. Another favorite is tomato soup and grilled cheese for Sunday brunch.

    A wonderful place to eat. Delicious meals all around our table. Party of five all shared a few appetizers & had different entrees...Appetizers vanished almost instantly for all the right reasons, and everyone claimed their main course was the best on the menu--trout; meatloaf; fried chicken; steak; duck--every single choice just fabulous. Beautiful plates of food with different sides. The steak places in town are very, very good. I'd rather go to Mozelle's.

    This was my first time at the restaurant. My friend and I had made reservations online prior to attending a concert. When we arrived, the host/waitress greeted us in such welcoming way. The restaurant was cozy and has both indoor and outdoor seating. It's a nice restaurant for a couple or group. I loved the ambiance, and the location downtown was perfect--not too congested. Our waiter/waitress were so patient and friendly. The southern charm was definitely there, and the food was amazing! We've already said that this restaurant was "our spot" when we return to Winston-Salem.

    This was my second time to Mozelle and it was just as good as the first time. From starters I had to increase my number of guests & didn't know whether that would be a problem & it wasn't. Then our server was just terrific esp. with recommendations. All of our meals were outstanding including the light Bread pudding dessert. The whole experience was perfect ~ thank you Mozelle ~ we will be back !

    Yet another perfect experience at Mozelle's! My husband and I have never been disappointed here and it is truly our favorite place to go in Winston. Mozelle's is the perfect combination of upscale dining and southern comfort food. The staff is always so polite and pleasant. And the food... Oh my goodness the food! I have tried multiple entrees/apps/desserts and everything is absolutely delicious. Now, every time we eat there I just HAVE to get the tomato pie. It is simply the best meal I've had in a really long time, and it never disappoints. Thank you Mozelle's for a truly unique and delicious dining experience!

    No Bread served with meal even though the special had bread. No steak sauces except ketchup. I have never eaten in a restaurant that did not serve any bread with meal especially with the price of the food. Nor not have any steak sauce. We were seated at the front door which we excepted but our reservations were for 6:00pm and not a lot of traffic coming in at that time but it wasn't long until it was like a revolving door didn't care for that. We won't be coming back our son gave us a gift certificate for Christmas for $75.00 so we felt that we needed to use it and we invited my brother in-law and his wife because they had just had birthdays on Sept. 6 and Sept. 17. Ryan's Steakhouse would be my choice they have the extras.

    My husband had the pork ribeye special and it was out of this world. The side of green bean casserole needs to be added to the regular menu. The whole restaurant was raving about it. My husband subbed mashed tomatoes for the Spanish rice (which didn't seem to fit). And he said it was one of the best meals he's ever had! Topped off with Mozelles bread pudding, he was a happy boy.

    I am wary of "southern cuisine" because it is often too filling and heavy, but this was neither, and it was superb - familiar food with a fresh twist. We had fried chicken, shrimp and grits, and creme brulee, all of which were delicious. We'll be back.

    This was the first time my husband ate at Mozelles and he loved it. My hubby is a finicky eater and I was hoping he would like the food and he did. The restaurant is a such a lit quaint restaurant with the most amazing food and the service is always good. It's a small restaurant with much character indeed. One would love the meatloaf and fried chicken. They are both succulent dishes with the spicy collard greens. It is a restaurant one should try for great southern eating.

    My wife and I went there to celebrate our anniversary. We sat outside and had a nice view of 4th strret in Winston-Salem. As we wre outside, the noise level was very low. Just a few passinfg cars on a Saturday evening. The food was very food and well presented. It's a small place and the outside seating was a very nice touch. Since we did not dine inside I cannot comment on teh experience doing that. If I return in the winter months and dine inside I'll comment on that.

    I celebrated my birthday here with friends and could not have had a better time! The beet salad was so scrumptious and the signature meatloaf was just as amazing as it was the first time I had it! The service at this little bistro is always warm, friendly, and accommodating. Mozelle's has definitely become a mainstay for Winston-Salem natives. You will always find spectacular specials here, and it's so exciting to see the menu change with the season, as the food here is farm-to-table. Hands down, one of my favorite restaurants in town!

    Sitting at a sidewalk table, enjoying a bottle of wine and delicious food, on a beautiful late summer evening, dinner doesn't get much better than this. I had that evening's special which was NC Trout with roasted vegetables and a delicious cream sauce. My husband enjoyed the Scallop appetizer with risotto, and a house salad and was equally content. Will was our wonderful server. Pretty much a perfect dinner. Just sad we had no room for the bread pudding.
