I've been a Mezza lover for many many years, and I'm just a little disappointed in some of their more recent changes. Food still tastes great, but service the last time I visited was just so-so, their menu has changed slightly, prices have notably gone up, and much to my surprise (and not pleasantly so) they now have a "take...

RESTAURANT'S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2016

As the mother of the groom, I needed to find a great place for the rehearsal dinner, but I'm not from Houston. I wanted a place near the wedding venue and our hotel in the Galleria area. I wanted a private room, and I needed a reasonable price given the size of the guest list (62!) Using online resources and... More

I had hoped not to post this review, but receiving no response to a long letter I wrote to Stephanie Tibi (I assume she’s the owner/chef’s wife, tho’ could be sister, etc) more than a month ago, I feel I have no choice. Below, is the letter I penned about my experience one week prior. Let me be clear here:... More

For the past 12 years, with the exception of one other review, we honored any and all negative reviews left by our customers. However, your recent attempt at smearing our reputation deserves a response. First, I want to clear up the facts of your reservation: it was scheduled for 7:00 pm for 19 people (not “20 or more” as your... More

I travel all over the United States and often eat at nice places and like to eat at different non chain restaurants. So I went with a couple of other people. We started off with a bottle of wine and a appetizer which I do have to say was pretty good. I ordered the shish a bob plate. When it... More

I had been here before and I am glad I went back. It is just as good as I remembered. I like the atmosphere and decor and low lights. Ideal for a quiet and enjoyable dinner. The service and food are just right and the price is fair, this is not a restaurant that will break your budget, but a... More

Good portion sizes. We had several appetizers to share for our dinner while our dinner mates had the mango stuffed chicken dinner (looked amazing!) and a salad to share. Atmosphere was nice and we were able to visit and have a conversation easily on a Sunday afternoon. I'd recommend meeting friends here for a great time!

Asked friends to join us for dinner. They had never been here and enjoyed it very much. We got there early and had reservations. Got very busy during our meal and most tables were full when we left at 8:30. Always pleasant, good service and fast. Large portions!

I invited a friend for dinner on Tuesday the fourth of October. The restaurant was not busy but I anticipated the usual excellent dining experience. I was sorely disappointed. The crab cake appetizer was not good. The crab cakes were large but had a lot of filler. The Lemon sauce that accompanied them was not good. I asked for a... More

Hubby and I I use this as our go to place for dinner on a night out. The Chicken with mango stuffing is wonderful. I'll get the turkey sandwich if I run by for lunch. Our waiter is usually Omar and provides great attention to our requests.

Have eaten here several times and the food's always delicious. A wide variety of menu items to choose from, all flavorful and good-sized portions. The flatbread with olive oil and spices brought to the table as you're seated is a great starter while perusing the menu. Today I had the bruschetta for a light lunch and it was excellent -... More
