First - the smell of the restaurant was overwhelmingly nauseating. I wanted to leave but it didn't bother my family. We ended up having a fun & unique dinner despite the carnivorous boys' initial protests. My husband particularly liked the falafel sandwich. It was fresh & served with cabbage. "A step beyond your factory-made falafel." Our 16 year old son... More

My friend and I came here for a later dinner after going to an American Stage production, and enjoyed one of the best entree's that we've had here after coming many times. The restaurant had been very busy earlier and the single waiter was rather frazzled after waiting on everyone, however Mark engaged with us with great conversation as we... More

I visited Meze 119 with a large group. The servers and manager did an excellent job handling such a large group (21 people). The vegetarian and vegan food was excellent! I have traveled quite a bit and look for innovative restaurants, and this is one that I can highly recommend. The sandwiches, soups, salads and side items were all well... More

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
