This was our first visit and we will definitely be going back. The service was good but not rushed. The food was well prepared and served hot.

I always love going to Mezzo - and my husband loves schnitzel night (Tuesday)! We are still only comfortable with outdoor dining and Mezzo has set up a very cozy dining area. The food is outstanding and love the fact that the menu changes all the time. They have a small 'favorites' menu and a large menu board that changes every visit. The staff is polite, efficient and very competent. Also love this is a family-run restaurant.

We wanted to eat outside and the restaurant made us feel very comfortable even though we were sitting in the parking lot. Watta ya goin to do? The food was very good, especially the chocolate soufflé and the mozzarella and tomato tower. It’s not the sort of place to go to when you just feel like going out due to the price, but for a special occasion, we look forward to going back and eating inside!

The food is awesome.
You got to try the Lumberjack Schnitzel or the Pork Medallion’s
The owners Nick and Kelly are so nice and sweet.
Best German Food in town!
The server was so sweet and attentive as well, never let our glasses go empty and was always right there when we needed anything.

Highly recommend going to Mezzo and support this local business through these tough times.
We want this place to be around for years to come.

The ambience was lovely; and the four of us liked our meals.
The only negatives for me were that our food didn't all come out
at the same time; and the spätzle was was a little too wet and mixed into the
food instead being served as a side dish.

Chef Nick and his wife are wonderful hosts, providing for a wonderful evening. The menu is varied and excellent. The locale is quiet adding to the enjoyment of conversation. The service is on-point and knowledgeable....and non-obtrusive (Thanks JR). What more can I say other than we went twice during our time in Charleston.

Let me begin with that the restaurant is quite lovely. I liked the ambiance. Now...the food is just OK. It is QUITE overpriced for the quality. We also had an extremely long wait - over an hour for our food. Our waiter never mentioned anything, but the female bartender apologized after about 45 minutes. She was polite. I was still patient at this point, but asked if our soufflé order had already been put in. We ordered the soufflé before we ordered our food. (26 minutes to prepare) I was assured it was being made. It was not. We did not get the dessert until 30 minutes later. I was quite disappointed. The chef came out and apologized a couple of times, not only to our table but a couple others “everything is prepared fresh”. Well, if you charge those prices, it would be great to have a better flow. And again, it was very mediocre. For a better dining experience and better prices, try Nico or Red Drum. Acme on IOP (beachside open air) is a casual atmosphere but the food is amazing and better priced. It was our first visit to Mezzo. We were disappointed and will not return.
PS...They charge tea by the glass. Enough said about overpricing????

Dear Ms. Taylor, First I would like to thank you for trying out our restaurant. As European dining, dinner is never served as quickly as you may be accustomed from larger restaurants with more staff and more importantly, a much bigger kitchen. Our kitchen is TINY, which I did try to explain to you when I apologized about the wait. Several reservations came at the wrong time that evening and messed up our "flow" as you call it. We are sorry that you had to wait and wish you all the best!

What can we say about this place, besides that it was amazing! From the moment you walk you notice that this restaurant is something different! The fresh flowers and candles on every table and dime lighting give the place a really cosy feel. The food itself was absolutely amazing... being from Europe and having lived in the US for the past year and a half we really missed good, tasteful, fresh, authentic European food... Boy did this place deliver on that! The mussels were spot on and the schnitzels were just... WAUW! We finished the evening with a chocolate soufflé... please leave room for it is you love desserts - you will not be disappointed! We were so blown away that we went back the next evening for more!
