Menu choice was excellent -- many specials in addition to regular menu. Service was very good. The potato pancakes and crab cake apps were delicious!! The Weiner Schnitzel was very good although the amount of salt could have been reduced -- and also on the potatoes. Strudel was outstanding. We'll come again but just mention to server to limit the amount of salt.

This was our 2nd time dining at Mezzo, and the food was delicious both times. I always like the options available on the specials board. It does seem like there is a bit of lag time between courses, but the waitstaff are polite and professional. Overall we really enjoyed the meal.

My wife and I have eaten here a number of times. Every time the food and service has been great. Noise level is generally low, this time there was a table who were obviously celebrating.
Highly recommend Mezzo.

Service was terrible! Had a reservation and were seated for 10 minutes before waiter arrived. Another 10 minutes to get beverages. Entrees and salad arrived at the same time. No bread service until meal had arrived and the dessert we ordered as instructed was not ordered by our waiter and we were told “sorry we just can’t get it”.
The food was good and I’ve eaten here before and never had this experience but felt as though we were stuck in a corner and no one cared or checked on us at all.
I will give it one more shot but for the money I personally expect better service.

This place isn't very big so get your reservation in early to try their amazing food. Definitely my new favorite place to eat in Mount Pleasant. The restaurant is owned by a local couple who we had the chance to chat with prior to our meal. Staff was incredible and I left there stuffed. This place is currently a hidden gem but it won't be long before word gets out.

The space and the staff were very nice. To our taste, the food was good but just did not have any Wow to it. We were there on Schnitzel Tuesday. the Schnitzel was good but nothing special. The potato pancakes were greasy and not at all crispy and we got 2 small pancakes and a little bit of salad for $16.

Outside dining and they offered cozy blankets! Much appreciated as it was a little chilly. Started to rain and they were able to move us under cover. The spaetzle app was really good, as was the mozzarella/tomato tower. Very busy but would recommend. We plan on returning as the food, service and ambience were really, really good!

food was excellent, service not so good. The server either was new and untrained or just didn't care. A very long wait for our food and they may have been shorthanded in the kitchen. We will have to go back on another night when it isn't so busy. Will try a different waiter.

Although the menu is a little limited, the food was amazing. Our server was attentive and pleasant. The atmosphere was very nice, although my personal preference is a little more privacy. They have the contemporary setting of a long bench against one wall, which accommodates many tables (sufficiently separated) down a row and single chairs on the other side. They serve beer and wine. They do not serve mixed drinks other than wine mixes. I had a bellini, which was very good, but a bit pricey.

This was our second visit to Mezzo. We like the variety of daily specials; there are many in addition to the regular menu items. The food is fresh and prepared to order which allows for a delightful "date night" fostering good conversation in a relaxed environment. It is a small space so we were happy to be seated next to a quiet-ish couple since we can easily be distracted. Perhaps request the front, back or outdoor tables if this is important to you. We'll be back.

Great (newish) restaurant. A great addition to Mount Pleasant food and beverage scene. Hidden gem for those looking for Downtown quality, but hate dealing with parking and hassle of the downtown experience.

Exceptional service, however we didn't think the food was that fresh. The spaetzle noodles seemed a few days old, and the boiled chicken on top was not very appetizing. The veal schnitzel was a poor cut of meat (very dark in color) and incredibly greasy. Schnitzel should be thinly breaded and crispy instead of soaked in butter. The side that came with the schnitzel, the potatoes with bacon, seemed heated up in a microwave and did not compliment the main course well (too much grease). Something green on the side would have been nice. For a $200 meal without any wine, we thought the food quality was really cheap. We were also charged $16 for 2 non-alcoholic beers when it is typically $2.50 a piece at fine restaurants. We both felt a bit sick the next day from the greasy food.

We try to go to Mezzo at least once everytime we are in town. The food is always excellent as is the staff. When warm enough, we love to sit outside but inside is lovely as well and very cozy. Highly recommend

Mezzo was, as always, a delicious experience.
We got the schnitzel and chicken piccata, with a salad and wine.
The creamy garlic dressing was the best dressing I think I have ever had.
My schnitzel was so extraordinary- multi-layered in taste sensations!
Pork, potatoes, bacon, creamy sauerkraut - sauce. Yummy!
