Mediterranean
Sitting on the “nexus of the universe”, bridging the East Village and the Lower East Side. Mezetto is where you can come to simply enjoy great food, fun drinks and good company. Inspired from the word 'Meze' which refers to a selection of small dishes served in the Mediterranean as breakfast, lunch or even dinner. It is our take on tapas-style dinning, offering small plates meant to be shared amongst friends to create an social dining experience. We are focused on taking traditional flavors and cooking styles of the Mediterranean and bringing them to life with new age cooking techniques, creative combinations and bold presentations.
Mezetto is how we do Meze.

    there was only one other table, yet it took the waiter so long to refill our drinks for boozy brunch. at one point the waiter left the restaurant for 10 mins and we were left alone.

    I made a reservation or my moms birthday brunch! I kept hearing such wonderful things so we were all so excited to experience it for ourselves! We got there early and were seated almost immediately which for a NYC brunch was a shocker! The food was outstanding! The drinks were amazing as well! The only thing that put a damper on our experience was our waiter. He was very slow to refill our bottomless drinks and whenever he was by our table he looked annoyed. Overall, he looked like he was not happy to be there which was unfortunate. Our bill was close to $400 and when you pay that much for an experience at a restaurant, you expect top notch service. Fortunately, a waitress of the tables next to us was so sweet and came over to make sure we were doing okay and even refill our drinks for us which we appreciated greatly! Would I go back? YES! I just hope I don't get the same waiter again.

    Great brunch food, bottomless experience varies depending on the bartender. Had 1.5 hours of bottomless but the refills were infrequent towards the last 45 minutes. Steak with hash is a great choice.

    absolutely love Mezetto!! Service is outstanding, the main server who’s always there is very attentive and friendly. had the sweet potato frittata and it was the best eggs I’ve had in a while. Also, how can you go wrong with $20 bottomless brunch. What a deal.

    The restaurant is vey small and we came for brunch on Saturday at 11am. That was fine for about 45 mins and then he decibel level kept going up and up until we really couldn’t hear much. Food was OK, not great.

    The food was good, hummus was delicious and spicy seafood pasta was very tasty. It’s a small restaurant, which traps in lots of noise, so that was a minor issue a few times during dinner, simply not being able to hear from across the table. Also, seating isn’t ideal. Fairly cramped, but not the worst I’ve been to in New York. Ultimately this is a good place if you want a lively dinner with tasty food and a friendly staff. But for a date, I’d probably consider somewhere else.

    Loved it here! Came here for brunch as it was the only place I could find who served bottomless on a weekday. We had an amazing waiter (forgot his name now) but he was so much fun and was quick to fill up our glasses as soon as the drinks were almost gone. As it was quite quiet we got to chose our own music from the iPad to play over the speakers and he was in no rush to get rid of us once our time had finished. Great service, food was lovely. Would highly recommend!

    I've been to numerous bottomless brunches in NYC, and I have to say this may have been the worst. Why, you ask? Well... - They sat us 30 min after our reservation - The space is very small as is and it does not help that they try to cram SO many people. I've become used to tight spaces living in the city, however this was unacceptable. I felt like we were dining with the tables near us as well. - IT WAS SO LOUD. I love a good boozy brunch and I understand this usually comes hand in hand with lively people, but again this was unacceptable. I couldn't even hear myself think and we were yelling across the table. - The food took over an hour to come out, and it was mediocre at best. I got the mezetto breakfast - the quinoa was cold, the avocado was a little brown, the eggs were burnt. The only plus was the pita and hummus (hard to mess that up). Overall, the only positive thing I have to say is that they serve straight champagne so if your group is really only concerned with drinking, it's not the worst place you can choose. It definitely was not worth the value though, being on the pricier side of the boozy brunch NYC scene ($50ish/PP).

    Waitstaff cordial and relaxed. My friend was about 30 min later than expected, and they essentially gave me a free flight of wines (Malbec, Cab Sauv, and Rose) to help me find just the right one while I waited. Food was good and prompt, and waitstaff went out of their way to make sure our order fit my dietary needs. Really excellent service here. It’s as convenient as can be from the 1st Ave exit of the 2nd Ave F Line subway stop but you’d never know you were right on top of the subway from inside.

    This was a lovely place to connect with an old friend--quiet enough for conversation; small and intimate. The pizzetta and fried calamari were delicious; attentive service; great bar selection (they had both Aperol and Campari.) Would definitely recommend and will go back again.

    I'm a bit disappointed because the online reviews sounded good but this is an average brunch spot. I've had better eggs benedict for the same price. We were not allowed to choose our mimosa flavors which is unfortunate because I did not like some of the flavors offered. Atmosphere was nice, though a bit dusty. It wasn't a bad experience but I probably won't go again.

    We had the place to ourselves, and had a fine evening. Food was good, nothing outstanding, and seemed very pricey. Drinks tasted a little watery- this place is apparently known for boozy brunch so I’m sure that would fun for a crowd! We went because we had a gift card, but I wouldn’t go again on my own.

    Overall, pretty good food with excellent presentation. We ordered a carafe of the speciality mojito, which is usually not on the menu as a carafe (bonus star for letting us get it). However, when they asked us if we wanted a refill, we said "we're good" and they brought us another pitcher and started pouring it for us. We assumed it was either free refills or some bonus mojitos...lesson learned, there are no bonus mojitos in NYC. They charged us an extra $45 for the pitcher (which was about 5 glasses), and when we told them we had said we were good on drinks and this was given to us without ordering it, he looked at us like we were crazy. Anyway, we paid for it, but that's the last time we go.

    My friends and I came here for brunch on July 4, and it was great! Thankfully we had this reservation because it looked like they were turning away people because there wasn't enough space. The food was yummy and the bottomless flavored mimosas were generously refilled in a timely manner. Definitely would recommend!
