Friendly Wine Bar

My wine tasting group recently had lunch here, with about 16 people total. The staff had put several tables together so that we could all sit together. The tables are high and the chairs are difficult to move, once you are seated. The menu is quite limited but the offerings are interesting... read more

I've been to Meze twice in the past week, I just couldn't get enough! The food is so simple yet addicting, and I absolutely love the baked ricotta dip (that was a special). They have a great wine list that pairs nicely with the food! I highly recommend this place for lunch, after work drinks, and pick a few items... More

We ate here twice and were not disappointed either in our initial or follow-up visits. Great wine selection (and reasonably priced) and well-prepared foods. Wine bar atmosphere with just a few tables. Service was friendly, unrushed and competent.

We ate twice at Meze while we were in San Luis Obispo last weekend. We went there for dinner, and that was so good we went back the next day for lunch. Great wine and the kind of meal where you melt with pleasure each time you take the first bite of every dish that arrives at the table. Simple... More

First, I love their motto: "eat local, drink global". It's wine, cheese & simple good food - how can you not love that?! The wine selection is pretty awesome and the prices are great. Tip: buy a bottle or two off the shelves to share at your table for the best value. Incredible selection of good cheese and the small... More

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa during our trip to visit the missions of California. Meze is not only a restaurant but a shop selling domestic and imported charcutererie, cheeses from around the world, domestic and imported charcutererie and groceries. The restaurant menu offered a nice variety of gourmet food. You... More

Our family's favorite go to spot in San Luis Obispo. This thoughtfully designed space with expansive windows and beautiful exposed brick and wood beam interior provides the perfect location for meeting with family and friends to enjoy wine and small plates, to meet colleagues for a business lunch, or to purchase gourmet cheeses, artisan food products and an international selection...

Cute little market where you can buy some fantastic cheeses. They let you taste the cheese and help you figure out which ones will pair well with the wines you have.

With its small, unpretentious sign among several similar ones on a building that abuts busy Santa Barbara Street, it's easy to drive right by this place and never stop. Don't! There's plenty of free and easy parking behind the building, which is, in fact, the front entrance to this stylishly refurbished and renovated old building. I'd known of this place... More
