Best truly vegetarian restaurant in Tampa Bay. All the dishes are authentic and very good. We had the garlic hummus, acorn squash special and Moroccan chicken dinner. The acorn squash is a terrific dish.

We chose Meze 119 because it was very close to the Dali Museum, and looked like it had healthy food at reasonable prices. We love mediterranean food, and while we do not eat strictly vegetarian or vegan, we enjoy vegetarian food, and we were delighted with lunch.

Our first time to this restaurant, and we will be back. Couldn't decide what to get, so we chose the sampler salad. You get three choices from their 6 or so salads. And each portion was pretty big, so it was an excellent choice for the $. All salads were delicious and fresh.

Meze is not your run-of-the-mill vegetarian/vegan restaurant, which is probably why the tables are full by 5:30. Super tasty hummus, soups and (wow!) those daily specials are what keep even carnivores (who are taking the night off from the flesh) coming back at a steady pace.

Visited once for lunch and once for dinner. Both times the staff were welcoming and attentive without being ott. Food was excellent and we left feeling full but without that bloated feeling that tends to come with chain restaurants. Excellent value too. Highly recommended

I have been to this restaurant several times, both with family and friends who are vegetarian. The food is amazing and one does not miss the meat. Flavorful dishes.
