Love this hole in the wall restaurant

Middle Eastern Vegetarian food, excellent service and delightful dishes. Only trouble is that it is small and very crowded (smiles).

Service was great but the food is overcooked, had the squash acorn and they burnt it! How does that happen?

This restaurant has excellent Mediterranean style food for lunch and dinner. Plus everything is vegetarian and tastes delicious! Service and prices were good. Definitely recommend for anyone who is vegetarian or simply looking for a great meal with fresh ingredients.

Meze 119 is a vegetarian restaurant, small with basic diner type decor. Menu items range from salads to vegetable entree and soy replicas of meat dishes plus one pasta meal. Appetizers were centered basically around humus but had several other items. Desserts were done very well most included ice cream. My wife had a cooked squash stuffed with grain well... More

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
