“Casual, relaxed and very good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012

I have eaten at Mezza twice now, and both visits were great. I am not sure when this restaurant gets crowded, but both my visits were early evening weekday nights, and it was quiet and relaxed. The food is very good. I have had the shrimp tacos and the shish-ka-bob, and the flavors were excellent. Great service too, and easy-in, easy-out parking in a large strip mall. I will be coming back!

“Absolutely delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2012 via mobile

We are visiting from out of town and we found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. The restaurant is amazing - beautiful decor inside, wonderfully active and helpful staff, and the food is absolutely delicious. We ordered the Lemon Butter Chicken entree and the stuffed chicken entree. My wife and I were overcome with the favors from those dishes! I wish we lived closer so we could return regularly!

“Mango Stuffed Chicken-YUM”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2012

Prior to business trip to Houston,consulted tripadvisor for restaurant rankings... so I chose Cafe Mezza. Following other diners suggestions,I ordered Mango stuffed chicken. The portion was large, served with delicious scalloped potatoes,& grilled vegetables. Enough letovers for meal next night. We didn't eat until 9PM on a Mon,so place was virtually empty.The waitress was very attentive. We sat outside on patio. I would return if in Houston again

“This is worth driving 45 minutes to!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

Cafe Mezza is in a strip mall off Westheimer. We live in Kingwood so it is a bit of a drive, but well worth it when you are craving some good middle eastern food!
They have a nice outside dining area that is surrounded by greenery which makes it cozy even though they are in a strip mall. We have been twice now and it doesn't disappoint. Start with the 3 or 6 appetizer assortment. The baba ganoush (sp?) and red pepper spreads are my favorite. Also hummus and tabouli - YUM! Followed by the mixed grill kabobs. They are served with a really nice seasoned rice and grilled veggies. They also serve an assortment of mediterranean dishes which we haven't tried yet.

“Delicious food with great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2012

We like to try different restaurants, so I looked on trip advisor, saw the great reviews on Cafe Mezza and decided to check it out. We thought everything we ordered was great, and the service was wonderful. I had the blackened tilapia which was topped with mango salsa and served with sauteed spinach, 2 big spears of asparagus and scalloped potatoes. I would return just for the potatoes. My husband had filet mignon with saffron basmati rice and grilled vegetables. The meat was served as chunks of filet and grilled perfectly. For dessert we had the white chocolate bread pudding. The servings were generous, but we couldn't resist our waiters suggestion for the bread pudding. My husband said the bread pudding should be declared illegal because it so rich and delicious. What a great find and if you try it, you won't be disappointed. Can't wait to return, and I'm already thinking what I will try next!
