Best before movie meal in St. Pete!

Our favorite place to go out to eat! Always yummy and so affordable! Nice variety of specials and the servings are generous without being excessive.

Ok so we were in town and had a short time for lunch, the reviews are strong. I told my wife I really don't want to try this food...... Glad I didn't have an option. Once I sat down and read the menu, I found several items I knew I could enjoy, sure enough the meal was served timely and... More

My wife and I stumbled upon Meze 119 a couple of weeks ago, on our way to a show at Jannus Live in downtown St Pete. What a great find! From the prompt and friendly service to the fine selection of Middle Eastern/Mediterranean cuisine, dinner was a delight. The menue includes fake chicken and steak products (which I use at... More

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. Super selection of appetizers through entrees; each with a multiplicity of... More

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
