AMAZING PLACE!!! I went here with a group of friends before our Spring Formal. Not only was the food amazing, but the restaurant was so accommodating. I had last minute guests added to our list and had to call them only a few hours before my reservation and they helped us work it out with no problems at all. Additionally, my friends and I are all Catholic and it was during Lent where we don't eat meat on Fridays. There is such a variety of options to choose from. Will definitely go here again!!

Excellent food and service. There were three of us and we all got something different. We scored the chicken dishes the highest. We shared an appetizer of calamari. It was lightly coated and not over-cooked. Some of the best we ever had. Also highly recommend the salad with goat cheese. It had some different ingredients than the usual run-of-the-mill goat cheese/walnut salad- excellent salad and dressing. Finally, the Negoni cocktails were excellent. Oh- and one person in our group has hearing problems and we were very impressed with the low noise level of the restaurant and appreciate that the music was not too loud. Hope it stays that way because we will be back soon.

My wife and I shared the scallops/shrimp appetizer and Snapper platter entree. The seafood was not fresh and rubbery. Cannot believe the high rating in trip advisor. It seems rigged!

Food was excellent! Appetisers and mains very well presented and very flavourful. HOWEVER - the service was as strange as I’ve ever experienced. It wasn’t bad but we were put in the back corner of an almost empty restaurant and absolutely rushed through the meal. Through ordering and eating two course we were less than 40 minutes. In that time a variety of waiters asked us if ‘everything was awesome’ at least a dozen times. We just wanted a little time and peace to enjoy our dinner......

Whilst the food was very good do not go expecting a dining experience!!!!

Still love this place! We have brought so many couples to this restaurant and always gotten rave reviews! Everyone in our party had the much ballyhooed mango chicken and as always it was excellent! So sad they ran out of bread pudding for dessert tho... Next time!

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.
