Vegan Superb!

OK, I'm unabashedly Vegan and love to try new restaurants that are or might offer Vegan meals. Well, Meze 119 is from the "outside-in" totally Vegan from decor to menu to meals to service to everything! Very popular with the locals; so time your visit to get a seat.

A gem we found. Very beautiful cafe and top notch fare beautifully presented.We dined here both days we visited St. Petersburg and took 2 non veg friends who loved the food. Very reasonably priced for the high quality. A variety of diners and most seemed like local business type regulars. Very comfortable and relaxing. Wine distributor was there at the... More

We really enjoy this place and it is so unique. We love the hummus and Zatar bread. We shared a spicy chicken and sausage flatbread that was definitely spicy but so tasty. Thankfully we ordered mint iced tea that took the heat down some. We also shared a veggie flatbread with artichokes and olives that we loved. Everything was wonderful... More

Poor service. Food was ok. Have had much better med food. Asked for an order of chips 3 times. Never got it. Waiter was overwhelmed. They need more waiters for a Saturday afternoon.

The service was sooooo friendly and helpful! We were seated and served water immediately while they explained to us their daily soups and specials. I had the pear and black kale soup and it was delicious. I also was very happy with the "steak" sandwich. Every single item on the menu is vegetarian (and many items are vegan), but I... More

We don't usually go to Vegetarian places to eat, but will definitely go back to this one. My falafel with an Israeli salad on it was scrumptious. My husband enjoyed his stuffed red pepper. The hummus with warm pita was a great starter. The service and help with the menu was appreciated.

We passed this little restaurant by accident. We already had lunch before, but we needed to have a second lunch here. All food is vegetarian even the steaks. Some dishes are vegan. I had a hard time choosing a dish. So we wended up sharing multiple smaller dishes. The hummus is amazing! Everything is fresh and full of flavor. I... More

The food was flavorful, satisfying amount, friendly service. Didn't give it the full 5 stars, cause the service was a little slow. But I will certainly return.

This has great baba ghanoush, tabouli and hummus --- very fresh, downright delectable. We had dinner at Meze 119 and enjoyed it so much that we came back for lunch the next day before we left town to return home. The prices are reasonable and there is both inside and outside seating. Well worth a meal here.

If you miss the Shakshuka restaurants in Israel, you are in luck! This is like the best kosher dairy places there. Fantastic menu with daily soup and boureka variations. The salads are so fresh and you can choose meze or salad variety plates with three choices for under $10 total. Do NOT fail to order the mint iced tea; it... More
