Seriously vegan! Wonderful!

7 of us had lunch here (only one vegan). This small gem of a restaurant was special. The staff was friendly and well versed on menu ingredients. The Meze special sandwich was a favorite, but everything ordered was fantastic. The spinach cakes, baba ganush, tabooli, humus, and "chikkn" soup were... read more

We ate both brunch and dinner at this vegetarian restaurant with many vegan options during a recent trip to Florida. The restaurant is quite small and comfortable with a wide selection of entrees at both lunch and dinner, as well as some delicious non-alcoholic drinks. The food was very good but not the best vegan food I've ever had. Still,... More

We went for Sunday lunch with friends. We made reservations, but found that when we arrived, the server that took our reservation had given the table to another group that didn't have a reservation (oops, I forgot). We ended up waiting 30 minutes for our table. While she was overly apologetic, the service didn't improve. Fortunately, the food was very... More

This restaurant turns vegan upside down and reinvents everything you ever thought about vegetables. Right off I need to say, hubby likes his meat. The food here is so good, he told me he could easily eat here every day it was so tasty. I forgot to take pictures when the food first arrived as it looked soooo good...we just... More

We had an awesome vegetarian meal at Meze 119. This is a very small restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. We sat on the street. I think our servers name was Mark. He did a fantastic job explaining the menu and he was quick to check with the Chef when he was unsure of specific ingredients. The service was very... More

We found Meze 119 on our last trip to Saint Petersburg and made it a definite plan to return on our recent trip back to St. Pete. And it was well worth it. The food is fresh and delectable. They prepare some of the best baba ganoush and hummus. And it seems to be increasingly popular for the restaurant was... More

Nothing was really wrong with Meze, but for me, the appeal seemed limited. Fresh ingredients, a vegetarian/vegan may love it but I am not and I didn't care for the selections. I will say the tea is awesome, brought to your table in individual presses. The atmosphere seemed stark. Service was good. I will not return due to the lack... More

We recently became vegan and so are looking for good vegan restaurant options. This menu had several. We tried the meatloaf, which comes with nonvegan potatoes so you may need to request an alternative side. We also tried the falafel which was very good. The warm pita and hummus was the best part.

Great find. Everything was delicious. If you like vegetables, you will be happy here. Interesting and appealing presentation. Simple decor, friendly and attentive waitstaff. I would return often if I lived nearby.

In St. Petersburg on business, I checked out this restaurant for two meals, a lunch and a diner. (Yes, good enough that I went back the second time). The falafel was great. Not enough of the potatoes in the sandwich, but it is such a novelty to find a place in the US that puts chips on falafel. The sandwich... More
