Too many vegetarian restaurants serve the carb heavy, bean heavy, routine vegetarian choices. Not here. While the ambiance is simple, the food combinations are complex and delicious, The Hummus plate comes with three or four different flavors. The burnt Cauliflower with dipping sauce is quite unique, as is the acorn squash stuffed with flavored Quinoa. There are several daily choices of textured proteins that also satisfy the appetite. Save room for their homemade desserts. Portions are generous and the staff very friendly and helpful in making great choices.

From the Shakshouka at night to the Challah French Toast to the daily specials which are always incredible this place is consistently GREAT! Its Israeli/Mediterranean and Vegetarian, the fake meat nuggets always blow me away as real. And they make the best Iced Limonana this side of Tel Aviv. The vibe is cool and the seating fun and comfy. The waitstaff is friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable about their product. Ive been here many times and the prices are very good for the quality of food delivered, and I highly recommend it.

Two of our meals were good, but two were just below average. I expected a lot more flavor, and quality from a vegetarian restaurant. They were even out of falafel. Both men had nice meals, and were satisfied. My squash with couscous was so-so, nothing spectacular. Our daughter ordered the "steak", and she could not eat it. We will try something different next time.

When I moved to St.Pete for work after living in NYS and LA, I was really wondering if I'd be able find viable options for plant based dining. I'd gone to Meze 119 about two years ago and had horrible service, so I never went back. Then, last fall a friend of mine convinced me to try it again; it quickly became my go to! I always know I can eat something filling and flavorful, and I can also bring my family and friends who aren't plant based, and they'll also be very satisfied. My favorites? Curried chik'n salad, Moroccan carrot salad, my carnivore friends love the meatloaf, and they also have a fantastic wine list and daily hummus and soup specials. They also had a plant based wine dinner on my birthday last year, and I was able to have a vegan version of french pate for the first time; who does that?! So thoughtful. If you're in St. Pete and want to have a positive dining experience, regardless of vegan, vegetarian, etc., definitely go to Meze.
