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

Ate outside it was too cold inside. Mint ice tea served with a stick of sugar cane. Spinach goat cheese omelette was average in taste, served hot and nice size. Others at the table had the soy steak sandwich. Even sitting outside the service was attentive. I hope to return soon to enjoy other menu items.

We went to Meze for a friends birthday dinner in a group of adults and children. Due to the weather we had to sit inside. The ambiance is fair, nothing spectacular. The food was good but a bit overpriced. 2 people, 2 entrees and 2 drinks was $80. Would go back if we had vegetarian friends in town, but otherwise... More

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
