Diner Reviews
  • "Loved Mozelle's. Food was excellent. I had the BELT, Bacon Egg Lettuce and Tomato on a wonderful croissant. Delish!"
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "small restaurant in high demand, so difficult to get in for dinner without reservations"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "I got the collard greens with bacon, b/c they are good for you & I love bacon. They were rather greasy & WAY too hot. I have no idea what made them so hot, but my eyes were running & 2days later my tongue still feels burned."

  • "Delicious Southern food, with a flare. Very tasty! I loved every minute of it. Service gracious enough"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Daughter and I were doing the college tour--hitting Wake Forest. What a gem of a restaurant! Neat older area of Winston-Salem. Charming wait staff and interesting diners. Ate inside but had a beautiful view of the outdoors and the folks dining outside--one with a beautiful dog by their side. Entrees were top notch but the desserts were exquisite. We split a chocolate creme brûlée--subtle chocolate--and just perfect. The bread pudding with pecans, etc. was comfort food extraordinaire. The whole trip put Wake Forest at the top of my daughter's list to date---and this restaurant certainly could only have helped. Excellent."

  • "We were running late for our reservation but the restaurant called and they held our table for us. Very friendly."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "All four in our party found our dinners to be delicious. Salmon was cooked perfectly, collards were nice and spicy, beet salad was a lovely new menu item. We were there on Thursday when Mozelle's offers four wines for $4 per glass. We found the wines offered to be to our liking and were impressed that they were good quality. We will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "I've been a Mozelle's regular since it opened. The food and service are always perfect, I never hesitate to take anybody there because I know the visit will be a success! They keep the old standbys and favorites while always introducing new specials, etc., which I think is the right approach for this restaurant."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "We have dined there many times., this time with out of town guests. The food is always great. This time we were eating our salads, when the entrees arrived. the restaurant was not full and there was no reason to rush us. Because there was not rally room on the table for all the plates, it was awkward and made us rush. Slow down, please!"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "We can always count in Mozelle's to deliver a delicious meal, and as usual we were not disappointed! We even took our kids (for the first time) and sat outside. We all enjoyed our food and left happy and looking forward to coming back soon!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "This was my second trip to this upscale Southern cuisine restaurant downtown Winston-Salem. The reinvention of these Dixie favorites has gotten me hooked on this little gem. I'm planning my way on working my way through the entire menu, but thus far the flat iron steak with collards and the fried chicken (amazing grits) have got me looking forward to our next visit. The restaurant is small and intimate so be sure and make a reservation."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Recommended by a colleague and was a delight for my family and my 12 and 13 year old children. The southern entrees were familiar dishes, with appealing presentation and amazing taste. Fabulous experience!"
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "Great food, but uncomfortable inside temp. Really warm inside, when temps are too hot to eat outside.Feel sorry for the cook staff, they must be sweltering. We got the Oso Bucco special, which was delicious. Also the Fried Chicken which is a trademark, always delicious. My husband says Mozelle's needs to revamp their seating/building conditions, inside and out, and the place would be perfect. I tend to agree."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "We visited Mozelles for our anniversary. We had the salmon and the tomato pie. The salmon was cooked to perfection and was definitely the best salmon I've ever tasted! The bread pudding for dessert was incredible. Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable. Will definitely go back to this place."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We have had dinner here 3 times in the past 2 months, and each time everyone at the table loved their selection. It is difficult to choose just 1 entree as the best: chicken with peach chutney, tomato pie, meatloaf medallions…………We would like to see the chocolate cream pie there permanently!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Freshly prepared! Perfection Meatloaf and Shrimp and Grits! Personable and attentive waitstaff.5"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "I always love the neighborhood feel and smallness of the place. The star is is the food. From the creative dishes, wonderful flavors and southern feel theres no other like it anywhere. Lunch is equally as good as dinner"
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "A hidden gem in downtown Winston-Salem. The food is always creative, the service great and flavors blend like thanksgiving at mom's. A great place to people watch but the view from the counter of the kitchen ballet is the best."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "I had the scallop appetizer which had 2 nice size scallops, with a lovely little salad that was full of taste. Other side was a nice herb farro. Hubby had the nightly special of pork Oso Bucco. It was cooked nicely and fork tender. Just needed more sauce for more taste. Pea and corn salad light and tasty. Finished with vanilla key lime pie. Probably high light of meal."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "This place does not disappoint. The gourmet meatloaf with cheese grits and spicy greens was amazing. I also had a bite of my girlfriend's scallops and they were probably that best that I've ever tasted."

  • "A great little spot with great food! We enjoyed the dinner so much we returned the next day (we are from out-of-town)."

  • "Visited for 30th Anniversary. Food was great! Will visit again."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Favorite spot for most any ocassion. Probably not the best place for kids, but kids who don't need a lot of space to move around or be active, would be fine. I'm sure there's a reason I should order something besides the tomoto pie, I just haven't figured that reason out yet."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Went to enjoy a birthday and it was the right choice. Marvelous tomato pie, and solid entrees for the others. Flavorful, attractive presentation, and great service. Be warned that reservations are in order--there is limited seating and while we were there several groups were turned away. Mozelle's is one of our favorites for a casual dinner on the town."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at mozelle's! My wife's scallops were perfect, and my meatloaf was a unique and delicious surprise. Our service could have been better, especially since there weren't many people there, but the quality made up for it."

All were excellent, service was attentive and the atmosphere had a nice vibe. Definitely would recommend to anyone visiting WS."

  • "We love Mozelle's! The food is great and the service excellant! Great outdoor seating and yummy brunch. It is small so reservations are a must but I have never had a meal that I didn't enjoy! Great shrimp and grits!"
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "I've had dinner several times over the years and consistency is hard to find, but that is why I return. I've had many different items from their menu and have enjoyed each of them, not had a single visit where the staff let me down, excellent dining choice in my opinion."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Traveling to Winston-Salem for a weekend stay at Graylyn. We discovered Mozelle's on OpenTable.com. We received awesome food and great service in an energetic environment. Our server was very helpful with food and beverage recommendations. Looking forward to returning again soon."
    Dined on 5/24/2014

  • "If you have the opportunity to dine here you simply must try the Tomato Pie. It is simply delicious!!"
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "We went to Mozelle's for brunch. Each item we order was delivered in a timely fashion. The food was delicious and definitely better than the majority of breakfast spots in the Winston-Salem area. The service was prompt and expedited and the staff was friendly! The prices were much lower than what I expected for the quality of food which I ate. I recommend the Biscuits and Gravy but everything we had was good! "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "The restaurant was extremely busy and there was some trouble configuring tables so that we could sit despite having a reservation. Every one was very nice but they seem quite stressed trying to handle the crowd. Likewise our waiter was quite helpful and attentive, but appeared that he was juggling A LOT of tables. I had ordered a soup (my husband got salad) and somehow the soup was forgotten. I just didn't even have the heart to ask him for it because he was doing such a good job of keeping drinks filled and taking and filling orders from the other tables. The food was REALLY good. I'd definitely recommend the place and go back. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "It was a busy weekend, and apparently we made a reservation after the best spots were taken, because our table was practically beneath the prep line heat lamps. It was so noisy from the kitchen, we couldn't hear the server introduce himself & he couldn't hear our response. Kind of comical: I think he asked, "How are you this evening?" & we replied, "What? It's kind of noisy" & he was like "Pardon?" However, they kindly reseated us outdoors when a table became available, & from there we had an enjoyable dining experience."
