    We were greeted with a smile by the gracious hostess. The restaurant had just opened for dinner and it was already bustling.  JT at the bar moved with the grace and speed of a knowledgeable yet playful bartender; the slightly dirty martini was Vegas grade! Customers were celebrating all around us in a place that instantly made us feel welcome. We ordered the Carpaccio and the Swordfish Special. We watched as the Chef and small multi-ethnic culinary crew moved with the focus and precision of natural born taste chemists. Conversations flowed and we met a wonderful gentleman who had brought fresh mint from his plot to share with the restaurant. Yeah, this is a place where the Loco Locals in Stockton gather, for sure! The Carpaccio had the right balance of deliciousness between the arugula, shaved beef, seasoning, and unexpected pine nuts. Chef Ruby Lopez definitely knows what she is cooking in this amazing, perfectly sized, Mediterranean influenced, Italian eatery. Originally from Lodi, starting as a dishwasher, inspired by her need to support her child, Lopez is now artistically working her magic at this surprisingly good restaurant.  The Swordfish was perfectly cooked and spectacular, with the right notes of sweet and savory elements. We would have licked the plate if we were at home! Reviews on Open Table and Google are a good reflection of the wonderful experience you will have at Mezzo. Highly recommended!

    Thank you so much for your beautiful review! We appreciate your acknowledgment of JT and our chef Ruby. Our craft cocktails are really exceptional! Our staff works as a team and really goes the extra mile to try and make our customers experience exceptional. One of our amazing servers actually comes into work and hand carves ice cubes for our bar drinks! Thanks again for taking the time to give us a nice review!

    Best pork tenderloin dish ever. Cooked perfectly with fresh spinach and green beens, chutney, and balsamic reduction with pear slivers. Dessert too was scrumptious with lemon ricotta poundcake with blueberry compote and gelato.

    Service was pleasant and helpful but it took an extraordinarily long time to get our food. We were there for nearly three hours and not because we were languishing over our food. For the price I thought the portions were a bit small - and I’m not one to complain about paying more for better quality food. Initially we were living it but by the time we left, we felt it was a disappointment. Though the food was very tasty, between the long wait for food and the small portion, it wasn’t worth the cost in the end. We probably won’t be back.

    Mezzo - StocktonResponded on May 3, 2022

    Heidi We are so sorry for the experience that you just had. I would appreciate it if you call the restaurant and ask for the manager - we would like to make this right for you and invite you back another night. Unfortunately Friday night we had our sous chef not show up for work and we have not heard anything back from him since then, Our dishwasher did not show up to work starting Thursday and still no word. These two things delayed our kitchen terribly. I hope to connect with you soon!

    I am surprised to see this restaurant so far down the list for "Best in Stockton". A hidden gem, it is certainly better than DW and MT which are 1 and 2 on OpenTable and Yelp. I can not wait to eat here again. Staff and service where wonderful and the great tasting food only rounds out the perfect time we had.

    Mezzo - StocktonResponded on May 3, 2022

    Hi Kevin thank you so much for the nice review! We just joined open table in Late October so we have not built up our ranking yet. Thank you for giving us a try and we look forward to seeing you sometime soon!

Waiter, Jymard, was very attentive and remembered our preferences from our last visit. Definitely a good place to go for special occasions and quiet getaways.

    Mezzo is the best restaurant in Stockton!! We were greeted courtly by Nick, who led us to our table. Our server Heather was cheerful and set the vibe for the night, got our drinks started and informed us of the unique specials for the night. Even other servers said hello to us as they walked by our table. Our drinks were fantastic and super instagrammable, so yes obvi we posted some cute pics with them. The food was UHHMAZING as always, and even impressed some of my more picky friends—proof that Chef Ruby’s cooking can form miracles lol. Awesome night!! Can’t wait for our next visit :))
