I so want to love this place. The food is fresh and good and we are sorely lacking in vegan restaurants in this town. Meze 119 is located right in the heart of downtown St Pete - within a block of the movies and just a couple of blocks from Beach Dr. I've been here several times and find the... More

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

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
