    Everyone was very accommodating and friendly. The hostess greeted us warmly and make us feel welcome. Our server was attentive and sweet. The food was very good although the desserts were quite small compared to the other dishes.

    Khristian greeted us for our reservation and was an absolute delight! So professional and customer service focused he just made us feel welcomed! Our server was really good, I can’t remember his name. Wore at hat and had a mustache. Your food is amazing and that’s why your our favorite place to meet. Your awesome staff makes the experience complete. Thanks again. We will be back again and again. Love the fact that you can mix and match skewers, I never knew that! Turkish coffee was delicious The way your chef prepares the kale and spinach is perfection

    The food was excellent. Very authentic and lots of options. Service was also very good - quick, friendly and responsive. The ambiance was fairly dark/drab/dated but it was a rainy day and that’s just my opinion. It was clean and well maintained.

    My only thought is that the belly dancer is really unnecessary. It did nothing to enhance the experience. And actually it was a bit off-putting having a woman dance around the restaurant and see men at the bar put money in her waistband. It is a fine restaurant and I’m sure business would not suffer if the dancing, and also the blaring music while she danced, was eliminated. I’d be much more likely to return, actually.

    We had a friend in town this past week who loves and misses Mozaic. At 3 different times we made reservations (twice in the evening and once late afternoon) and each time was great. Terrific food, super nice staff and one evening we caught the bellydance show was mesmerizing. Looking forward to lunch or dinner here. Highly recommend.

    I have missed patronizing this restaurant. It is family owned, good food and just the right amount of spices to add to the dishes. The waitress we had was very personable and we enjoyed our visit. The outside dining could use a little sprucing up, the barricades around the dining area are a bit high and if lowered you could sit and people watch but this is very minor. It got a little cold out, but we stayed for the food. The food was excellent and had great flavor. Great job and kudos to the staff.

    The ambiance and overall service was great. Few notes: 1. Food flavor is ok. When compared to a few bay area Mediterranean restaurants, Mozaic was so so. 2. Server did not ask if we wanted coffee or tea after the meal / only asked for dessert.

    Our waitress was attentive and made suggestions. The cocktails, spanakopita and moussaka were all delicious. I think being seated toward the front or middle of the restaurant would make for a more pleasant dining experience. We were seated in the back which feels more like being in the middle of the kitchen traffic and too close to the restrooms.

    First time dining here and it did not disappoint. We wanted to sit outside but the weather did not cooperate - the restaurant notified me in advance of the situation, and we sat comfortably and safely inside. Food was very good (we both had the falafel wraps and the cocktails delicious! I will definitely be back!

    The music was a little on the high side, the music could have been Mediterranian. It was a cool damp evening, both front door were open so it gave the restaurant a cool feeling. Not warm and inviting. I asked and they complied to close one door and turn down the volume of music. Our server was wonderful, food very good. I can teach them how to make a Greek salad though.

    The music was loud, fast-paced, and made me and my dining companions nervous. The service was slow. The food was just okay. The gyros are not shaved thinly from a spit, but cut in thick, unwieldy slices (and not off of a rotating spit as far as I could tell. They seem to have been baked in an oven that dried out the 3/4" slices). Everyone else's food (there were four of us) seemed dry and bland. A neighboring diner ordered some sort of fish dish, and as it passed us on the way to their table, the smell of not-so-fresh fish filled our lungs and made all of us feel ill. I'm pretty sure that fish was at least a week old, based on the overwhelming fishy, old smell. We won't be coming back.

    This experience was generally good but there were a few things that could’ve have made it great. The music got VERY loud once the belly dancer made her entrance. My husband and I had to practically shout across a small table to hear each other. Also, our waiter was not wearing a mask which made us feel uncomfortable, especially when he had to come close to hear what we wanted to say to him regarding ordering, etc. I think every other waitstaff person had theirs on. The food was tasty and served quickly, but the above mentioned items made this a less than comfortable experience.

    Originally requested outdoors but space was on the street, very dirty and poorly set up. Indoors was much better. Space is nice, not great. Service was excellent. Quality of food was uneven with decent but not great flavors. Think there are better choices in Santa Cruz for Mediterranean food.

    Sadly disappointing-the saganki wasn’t a big lump of Feta which I have never seen used before -so it was very salty and had not gone all gooey like it should… The lamb shank was delicious but then the specialty coffee we ordered came in a glass mug, no cream etc and that was $12! Felt we were a little underserved by the wait staff who were dealing with a big tsble
