Food was great, waiter was very odd. He tried hard and was very attentive, but he talked too fast, too quietly and nonstop.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. This trip was not as spectacular as previous visits. There were multiple mistakes between the food server and the bar, which ultimately ended in us cancelling our drink orders. In the past we have had multiple dishes on skewers, risotto, stuffed chicken, salads and the pork chops; this time we chose the ribeye. While there was nothing wrong with the meat or the way it was prepared, the dish ultimately left us wishing we had chosen something else (underwhelming).

We had a party of six and no compalaints. Four of us had the seafood platter and two had the crabcakes which were excellent. The ambience of Mezza was very well received by our party of six. I would recommend Mezza Grille. We will be going back for a future visit.

The food was incredible and a great value for the money. The house cabernet was very good and reasonably priced. Our server (Brianna) was friendly and helpful. I wish I would have discovered this restaurant years ago. Definitely worth the 45-minute drive from Kingwood. We will be back soon.

Food is delicious, a bit pricey for the ambiance and some dishes like anything with beef ( kabobs ) are very stingy on portion. The tortilla soup is fantastic, spinach stuffed chicken tasty and large portioned, we enjoy the cinammmon rice and the complimentary oil and chips upon seating. Look at the menu before you go, will be licking your chops! But be prepared for a metal table, fairly noisy interior. Really 3.5 stars but I upgrade to four because of my favorite dishes!

We always love this place which is consistent quality of food and service. The only negative is they started accepting reservations for only up to 6 people last November. We regularly have had 10-14 after Saturday night church. Don't understand this.

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.

I would not hesitate to go again or to recommend that others choose this place to dine.

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.

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.
