About Mezetto

Sitting on the “nexus of the universe”, bridging the East Village and the Lower East Side. Mezetto is where you can come to simply enjoy great food, fun drinks and good company. Inspired from the word 'Meze' which refers to a selection of small dishes served in the Mediterranean as breakfast, lunch or even dinner. It is our take on tapas-style dinning, offering small plates meant to be shared amongst friends to create an social dining experience. We are focused on taking traditional flavors and cooking styles of the Mediterranean and bringing them to life with new age cooking techniques, creative combinations and bold presentations.
Mezetto is how we do Meze.

Great food; cool vibe. Some months we went here for lunch and it was very crowded and loud, but the food was great. This time we grabbed dinner on a Sunday night and it was quiet and the food just as good as before. Highly recommend it.

Went for brunch with friend from out of town. The food wasn’t particularly standout, especially considering the price point. Avoid the pizza — small portion and not particularly interesting.

I’ve been here so many times. I do brunch a lot, however this might be a top 5 brunch in nyc. The food is amazing, the drinks are flowing, and our waiter Jose is the best. 5 out of 5.

Overall I'm sad to say it was a disappointing experience. Despite our reservations for my dear friend's birthday, we were seated an hour after our scheduled time with no apologies or offered comps. The food came out in a completely different order than what we requested. The service was less than average for the price point of this restaurant. I would not recommend it.

A friend and I stopped in for bottomless brunch on a sunday afternoon. It's pricey for the quality of food and portion sizes, and while they were attentive and refilled glasses as soon as they were empty, the "champagne" was either completely flat or watered down.

My friend had the avocado toast - it was $18 for 2 small pieces of toast with a jam-like serving of avocado spread on top. It looked like it had been prepared previously and had been sitting out, as the avo had started to brown.

I had the steak hash - while tasty, the portion was not worth the $22 price tag.

Best part about this place was the bartender and her throwback playlist.

My food (fried eggs with quinoa, avocado, and labneh) was pretty cold despite being served in a skillet. I guess I could have complained but at that point I just wanted to eat.

It was really noisy to the point where I could barely hear my friend and the waiter.

The portion was also super tiny - like 3 tablespoons of quinoa and less than half an avocado.

We arrived about 10 min late for our reservation, but our table was not ready anyway. We had to wait about 45 min for our table, standing up and very much in the way. They offered us some cheap shots in recompense. The manager made it seem like he was going to cover our unlimited mimosas, but instead he was only going to cover the first round. That does not make any sense!

I have to think that the food is the only reason why this place is still in business. As for the bottomless mimosas, they force you to cycle through all of their flavors. I told the waitress that one of them was too sweet, but she could not skip it because her manager would get upset. I had to chug the syrupy drink that I didn’t like just so that I could move on to the next when. Gross!

There are so many better options in this area for brunch. There is no justification for ever coming back here.

I was greeted by the host informing me I was 6 minutes late and they would give away my table after 15 minutes if the rest of my party didn't show up. A couple minutes later when my friend arrived, the waitress let us know again that we were 10 minutes late. It turned me off to the whole experience.

It was generally a good experience. However, the service could’ve been better. They allowed 5 people to sit at the 4-top next to us which greatly impacted the space I had and my experience. It was clear that the server favored the girls next to us as he continued to give them drinks and didn’t ask what we might want. After our time was up they didn’t even ask if we wanted more, just brought the check and walked away - we were actually discussing ordering something else. For the most part I’m a great fan of Mezetto, so I’ll definitely be back, I just hope things will be different.

The noise level was so high that I had to scream at my companion to hear her. We finally just stopped talking. The food was good but it took way too long to come out. Ordered the hummus with pita as a start- it took them 20 minutes to bring it out.

It was the coldest day of the year and we were freezing our butts off because I guess they just couldn’t keep the place warm enough. Food was just great, the drinks were immaculate, the service was impeccable and we had a great time nevertheless. So when I whine about the cold you could probably just dismiss it as nitpicking.

I've been here twice for brunch and both times I loved it! The place is conveniently located right next to the train. It's on the smaller side but it creates a nice and cozy atmosphere. You never have to ask for another mimosa - they keep 'em coming. The food is ridiculously good! My favorite is their challah French toast. The hummus is also super rich and creamy. Overall, a great restaurant that every brunch fanatic should put on their bucket list.

I went there with my girlfriends for brunch on Saturday afternoon. The food was okay. I got Bacon Fritta and my friends got Kale Benedict and Charred Octopus. It's sad that they didn't have the duck dish on the menu that they used to have.. maybe it wasn't on brunch menu. It was very noisy though. We have to shout just to talk.

This was a delicious meal! We sat at a high table right by the window and got to look out and people watch. The place has a great ambiance, very nice waitress, nice music. We each had a large glass of the red sangria, great price at happy hour! We shared the buratta and lamb burger. The burger was so flavorful and came with well cooked fries. Would definitely recommend for dinner, and would love to try their brunch.

Unfortunately after searching thirty minutes for a vegan restaurant we weren't able to dine. There was an incident in the restaurant which required NYPD and so the manager offered us to sit but they were closing the kitchen in 15 minutes. I don't like to be rushed when dining so we didn't say. We went to the Cuban restaurant next door and they had great yuca fries! I mean amazing yuca fries.
