    Mezza platter was excellent way to start for a party of four. Entrees were ok to very good-shrimp skewers were the "winner". Restaurant was very busy and quite noisy on a weekend night. Will definitely try again, but on a weeknight.

    Ordered a mocktail that clearly had alcohol in it. Wasn’t happy about that. Food overall was just okay. Service was not great. We never got our bread and our waters went empty without a single refill. Probably wouldn’t come back again.

    We live in Watsonville, so we do not go to downtown SC very much. However, when we do, we love going to Mozaic. The owners, staff, chefs, food, etc. are all great. !

    After our order was taken, our waitress paid no attention to us. She was busy making drinks at the bar and never noticed that our starter was sitting on the kitchen counter getting cold. I had to flag down another waiter for assistance and then it took several more minutes for our waitress to stop at our table. After addressing the problem I expected better service, but that never happened.

    Tasty, well-prepared food. Traditional rather than the more nouvelle-cuisine variety available around the corner. What I especially appreciated was being accommodated for outdoor dining almost at the last minute, given the new(ish) Wave of Covid, and the attentive and friendly service. Also I love a dog-friendly restaurant even though I don’t have a dog!

    Tasty food that is reasonably priced combined with genuinely warm service (despite being a Saturday night and VERY busy) made this a real treat for my wife and I. Dog friendly outside on the sidewalk. Vegetarian friendly menu with delicious salads. Cocktails are a bit over-priced, but when was the last time you sipped a bargain cocktail, right? Overall a very pleasant experience. We will be back.

    We ordered the Mezza platter for 4 to share as an appetizer and then split the watermelon and feta salad. Kids had souvlaki. Food was fresh and nicely presented. It was also very tasty. The server Thomas was attentive and efficient. We went early on a Friday night to avoid it being too crowded or too noisy. Imagine it gets quite busy later on in the evening.

    My wife and I dined at Mozaic to celebrate our anniversary. The overall experience was quite good. We were greeted and served promptly. We were provided water and bread within a minute after we seated. The ambient is quite relaxing. We liked the bread and pesto sauce. We ordered fisherman's cioppino and mozaic paella. Both are as expected. There are lots of meat and seafood in the paella. The rice is a bit raw but I think it is the way it is. For both dishes, we wish the clam and mussels were meatier and not torn by overcooking or some preparation mistakes. Shellfish meat should be round and whole, regardless of it is attached to the shell or not. Btw, we loved the grilled octopus. Perfect texture and taste. We actually dipped our bread using the sauce from this plate. Just a little thing. We told the hostess we had reserved a table for two. She sent us to a table right next to the entrance. It is the noisiest spot inside the restaurant. There were plenty of empty and unreserved tables inside. Upon request, we were seated in a quieter table inside.

    We enjoyed our meal. The food was very good. They gave us a table that felt awkward. It seemed as if they put the table because they didn't have room for us. It was by the check in / waiting area. We didn't like that. Otherwise. We really liked it.

    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.
