My sister and I decided to try this little place out. Something different and we didn't have to worry about our husbands not liking vegetarian cuisine. We loved our meal. Price was fair, Service was good. We'd go back again, but not with husbands. There aren't too many restaurants who service vegetarian food, so this was a big plus in... More

There are so many great places to eat in St Pete, why settle for so-so. The service was poor, the food was ok. Would look elsewhere next time.

I've been to Meze 119 many times. It is a great little spot with excellent vegetarian fare. They have the best faux meat that I've tried. Texturally and flavor-wise, their meat tastes like the real thing. I especially love the Flat Iron "Stak" (long "A" in the pronunciation); it's got mushrooms, caramelized onions and cheese on garlic flatbread. It's my... More

Ne ar the heart of downtown St. Pete is this little place on 2nd Ave. that I had never seen before but felt compelled to try after some recent Middle Eastern restaurant excursions in the Northeast..... this is a very small place with booths (plenty of room) and tables (way too small). The food, as always, is really why you... More

Great vegetarian menu capable of pleasing omnivores as well! Tasty, artisan vegetarian plates and sandwiches served quickly by pleasant, intelligent staff with a decent beer menu! Clean, relaxed downtown location walking distance to Central Ave and Beach Dr scenes very enjoyable and refreshing dining experience

We had a pleasant dining experience in this little restaurant. The food was very good, especially the roasted acorn squash, served at a proper temperature and plated attractively. Our service was good - no complaints. I can't speak to parking, as we were staying at a nearby hotel and walked to the restaurant. Otherwise, I recommend giving Meze 119 a... More

It's delicious. You'll love your food, that's for sure. The service is very hit or miss. It's a tiny spot, but they get a little busy and service falls apart. Like... Wait 45 minutes for a hummus appetizer that looks like it was plated by a child. Slopped on and delivered 1 minute ahead of our entrees. Embarrassing. Still -... More

I have been here with my wife numerous times. Most recently we ate here on Valentines Day. They had a special V-day menu selection. Everything we had was delicious except for the beet hummus. However, the service was very slow. They had two waiters working and even though it was Valentines Day the restaurant is very small. You would think... More

Good location if you are going to the American Stage Theatre which is only a couple of blocks away. Fun decor and fun wait staff who are more than happy to answer questions and explain the menu. The BLT with fried tomato and tempeh sandwich was delicious with a great sauce. The falafel was good, came with tomato and cucumber.... More

We were done in the area for half marathon and went looking for vegan options. We came across this place and loved it. We sampled off all parts of the menu and everything was great from food to the service. Next time we are in the area we will be back.
