The food here has a great presentation and it is always good!
The wait person we had last time was not the greatest but we won’t let that keep us from going back.
Went for my husbands birthday and the Fried Calamari was very fresh. The Lamb Chops were perfect. The Snapper was perfect. The Steaks were melt in your mouth delicious and the Cesar Salads were even done very well!! We will be back!
Great place to dine. The service was good and the food was delicious. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and I plan on coming back soon.
The food and service was excellent. We came to town to visit. Our friends or ourselves had not been here before. We will definitely return.
Comida muy rica, menú extenso y buen servicio
Un poco ruidoso
Probably the best Filet and Rib-eye i have ever had.
The food was good, but our server Omar A did not seem like he wanted to
be on duty this evening. Omar spent too much time talking to other servers
at the bar area, and not attending our table. The restaurant was not busy so
he had no reason not to give us better service.
This was our fourth visit to this restaurant, and the other three visits the servers
were excellent, and very good.
The food is excellent albeit slightly overpriced.
First visit 12/9/18, 4 people attended and all said they too would return. I bought 75.00 worth of gift . cards for Christmas gifts. Second visit 12/23/18, 3 people attended and said they too would return.
I would not hesitate to go again or to recommend that others choose this place to dine.
This restaurant is really nice!!!
It was our first visit and it won't be our last. Menu was intriguing and I had hard time decided what I would eat. Settled on Saffron Rice and Lamb. My wife had Avocado stuffed chicken. We were there for my daughter's 50th birthday, but can't remember what she ate. We all loved our choices, and the amount of food was overwhelming so we had to take food home. Enjoyed mine the 2nd time as well. We found our favorite Pinot Noir or the wine list and at a reasonable price. It proved to be a good choice.
Great find and worth the drive! Made the trip from Spring looking for a great dinner.
My third visit was not as good as my first two excellent visits.
The restaurant temperature was very cold, and the three of us could not enjoy our meals.
We had to put on sweaters, and we were still cold.
I asked our server if they could do something about the cold temperature, and she told
me she would have to talk to the boss. Nothing got better and it remained cold during
our complete visit to this restaurant.
I hope the they correct this issue before our next visit.
I can’t say enough about this delightful place. You will love everything about it!!!!
Delicious food and friendly staff.
This was our second visit to Mezza Grille and was even better than our first visit.
Our server Jwana gave us Five Star service from our arrival until our departure.
The food we ordered was excellent and could not have any better
Jwana is the best server we have had at any restaurant in many years,
and we will make sure we will ask for her on our next visit.
We always love the food and service at Mezza. Very glad to see the lobster bisque back on the menu. The Mezza salad is delicious. They've changed up the menu a bit since our last visit a couple of months ago. I was disappointed to see that they no longer include sides with the meat entrees. In the past the steaks and lamb chops (which by the way, are delicious) included 2 sides and I didn't realize that was no longer the case when I ordered (my fault for not reading the menu thoroughly). (In fairness they have reduced the price a bit since not including the sides) I think it would be a nice idea to include small sides with the meats, maybe a little mashed potato or rice and a vegetable, doesn't need to be the same size as their very generous a la carte side dishes which would serve at least 2. Husband had the chipotle seafood risotto which was excellent. Very rich and lots of large shrimp, scallops and other seafood.
Otherwise, as usual, the food and service were great.
Made our reservation through open table and went in, our table was prepared and ready for us when we arrived...music was playing on low and one other couple was already seated enjoying their meal. Our waiter was friendly and explained each of the dish on the menu and the time it took to prepare it. The chicken goat cheese dish I was told would take about 25 mins but it seem like 10. The restaurant had a nice easy layout and black table cloth that I liked very much.
The food was phenomenal however the service needs improvement, perhaps specifically the waiter. Otherwise, I would highly recommend.
It was my first time at the Mezza grill, and the inside of the restaurant is nice atmosphere. I asked the waiter what would he recommend and it was the braised lamb dish with walnuts served on top of a rice. The food came and it was horrible, very very bland. I told the waiter and he apologized but never offered to get me something else. I noticed a shrimp and scallops dish that a customer at the bar ordered and it looked good. So I asked the server to return my food and re-ordered the Shrimp and Scallops risotto. It was good. When we order our drinks, the server forgot to bring up the orange peels and chaser, so it was small things that the server didn't do. And my date thought her food was average at best. I was surprised by the quality of food and service at Mezza grill because it received great reviews on Yelp.
It was good food. For the price and ambiance I gave it a 4. Seriously if you want to charge high like a fine dining you should fix the ambiance.
I was excited to see what all the awesome reviews were about. What a disappointment. The server seemed confused and, instead of talking to our group, he would just ask 1 or 2 of us about a drink or to tell us about the menu. I had to ask him twice to ask another person in our party of 6 about a drink Or a meal item. The food wasn’t bad; it just wasn’t great like all the reviews raved about. The music was so loud, we couldn’t hear each other speak. The place was empty except for 1 couple that came in late and 2 ladies that sat and talked a long time. It was also VERY expensive. I won’t go back. Also, the reviews need to be reviewed.
This was my first visit to Mezza Grill, but not my last.
Our server Leo gave us Five Star service, and he could not
have done anything better.
The three different meals we ordered were excellent
and worth coming back for.
Mezza Grill has become my favorite restaurant. Everything is delicious. You must try the lamb chops, and shishkabobs. But one of new favorites are the seafood skewers. They are so tender moist, grilled to perfection. Everything is delicious. You won't be disappointed, can't wait to go back.
Food was tasty...
Service was excellent, although it was a quiet evening.
The food was great we were seated in the bar area which was quiet but not very nice atmosphere
The restaurant has excellent food. Service is usually very good too. Prices are extremely reasonable. We will go back again and again.
Phenomenal place and amazing food & service!
Service was very slow, wait was worth it, food was excellent.
My girlfriend and I went to Mezza Grille on a date and it really far exceeded my expectations. Our server, Breanna, was friendly and attentive (and funny!) and was a great waitress the entire night. Very accommodating. The atmosphere of the restaurant is quite nice without being stuffy or pretentious. It’s the kind of place you might take the parents of your significant other to show that you care to take them to a nice place without being too showy or over-the-top. The food was phenomenal. We had some meat kebabs and lamb shanks for our main courses and both were great but the lamb was especially good considering how tender it was. It was so soft I had trouble pinching it with my fork because it would split from being cooked so perfectly! The sauce it came in was also a great dip to soak the basmati rice it came with. I also ordered a side of mushroom risotto and it was incredibly creamy and flavorful. Not to mention our two appetizers: the baked goat cheese and the pecan-crusted Brie. Both were excellent, but the Brie was absolutely to die for. It came with a jalapeño strawberry jam and it paired exquisitely. I would honestly go back just for that Brie. My only complaint was that the cocktail (a strawberry mule) was VERY expensive ($12) but I kind of expected the price to be high. It was delicious, but not $12 delicious. Overall it was a spectacular dining experience and I can’t wait to come back and tell other people about this place!
Outstanding. We always sit in Tina’s section, she is absolutely wonderful. The food is always outstanding. The chicken mango and Red Snapper are delicious. Always love coming here.
An excellent fusion of Middle East & American cuisine. I highly recommend the mixed grill for those folks like me who can’t make a decision on just one entree. The white chocolate bread pudding is the best I’ve ever had.
We were very happy with everything! The spicy steak chipotle pasta was fantastic.
The food is always outstanding, luv their hearty tortilla soup, cinnamon flavored rice (and I am not a cinnamon person!) and all kebobs service was unusually slow this time. Just a plain Jane interior but you go for the food.
Consistently good salads. I wish they had an option of cups withnfull salad. Very attentive waiter.
First the host was awesome and helpful
Our waiter was awesome and helpful as well knowledgeable about the cocktails and food Thx Oscar and the awesome Mr host whose name I forgot thank you so much for helping us have a warm and inviting mid day dinner💕💋💕💋
Great food with excellent service. Was our first trip, but will definitely be back.
On TripAdvisor this is a high rated restaurant. Food portions are too big. Presentation is poor. Ambiance is bad. Service was very good
We had a really nice evening at Mezza Grille. Our server was attentive and the food was very good.
I was concerned at first as the server was not very friendly and then it was my birthday and would not allow us to bring our own cake, unfortunately I wasin the hospital 3 weeks ago and I'm very restricted on what I can eat so that was disappointing. The owner came to explain why the policy was in place and it made things better as our server Omar was nice, friendly and thoughtful. I ordered the grilled vegetables platter that includes scalloped potatoes and the thought of me not being able to eat dairy si he suggested a substitution for rosemary roasted potatoes, delicious!! The food was worth not being able to bring in my own cake, lol.. price is reasonable, food is delicious and Omar's service excellent!! My family had found a new favorite place :)
Great food, great service. Some of the best vegetables I’ve had.
