My husband and I went to Mezza to share an appetizer and have a glass of wine at happy hour. The menu sounded good but had less Italian food. We ordered the mussels with garlic and parsley, we weren't thrilled. The sauce was bland and heavy on the parsley. The bread was wonderful!!

Mezza remains one of my favorite restaurants in Jacksonville, but last week I experienced a fine night of dining, wine and jazz mixed with casual conversations with other guests at the bar and the owners, Niall and Nancy. The sauce accompanying the sirloin special was super. Food is consistently great and the ambience, for solo diners like myself to families... More

Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and had suggestions for everything we asked. I was leaning towards the scallops and when my son-in-law asked for the server's recommendation, it was the scallops! They were as big or bigger than a silver dollar. There were four, but they could be cut into sixths and were served on a bed... More

Our server was wonderful and took great care of our party. I guess I was expecting more of an italian selection. The food was OK but I would rush back.

I have always loved this place, especially when it was Mezza Luna. Their menu had many more Italian choices and everyone came here for their Italian food. Although the wonderful atmosphere is still the same and the bar scene is still lively, I hardly go here anymore since their simplified their menu with more tapas choices. Since I don't eat... More

We had a great family meal at Mezza. The scallops, steak frites and spinach fettuccine were all excellent. Kids meals were good too. Service was promt despite the restaurant being full. We'll be back again.

Specials were excellent, staff courteous but the pasta not al dente... Seemed like they cooked the plate in microwave. Leek bread pudding absolutely fabulous though

I had a business dinner in the upstairs room. This room was reserved for us only. Nice place, we had all drinks and some options for the dinner. The food and drinks were good, but the service terrible, too slow. Every time I asked for a beverage it took an eternity to get it.

If you've never been to Mezza then you're missing out because the food excellent and the service is great. It's a great cozy atmosphere where everyone knows your name or they'll get to know it.
