Delicious restaurant, friendly staff, great menu that changes seasonally no matter when you go though you’re sure to find something that you’ll love. Best risotto of my life. Wonderful date night….Hanna L., Google reviews, Jan. 2019


A is for Ambiance.
For starters, Mezza has three different dining areas and two nonchalant entrances. You can choose to sit in the socially stunning bar area by the band for a lil party. Or you can disappear at your table with just your good company in the front dining room. There’s a pretty cocoon of a patio too, which I have not experienced, but it looked tempting. Wood floors and what feels like all-candle lighting (is it not?) brings the kind or romance, coziness and class thats truly hard to come by these days. It can be totally packed but if you are in the front dining room the only people you really notice are the people you are dining with. They just don’t make them like that anymore.

The food/service- Exactly what I wanted it to be. My boyfriend had the steak, which was cooked perfectly med-rare as we expected. I had the house-made Pappardelle pasta which was worth the price. I’m a lover of house-made pasta and only treat myself to a $24 entree for special occasions so I was heaven. I had a glass of red, he had a manhattan and the waitress was sweet, knowledgable and to the point. The whole experience felt old-school, in the way we all miss connecting with each other before smart phones. Find someone worth spending time with and eat here….Rebecca D. Yelp Dec 2018

I love that each time I eat at Mezza it feels like a new restaurant! The menu is out of this world, the service to die for, the atmosphere awesome and the food is so good you want to eat more and more! They have an awesome gluten free menu and you’re able to feast like kings and queens! — Amy M., Yelp September 2018

Absolutely one of my favorite restaurants at the beach. I love the atmosphere – the warmth of the wooden floors, elements and décor provide for a classy yet not-too-stuffy atmosphere. And the food is delicious and elegantly presented. I had the lamb meatball appetizer the other night – delicious! They have a great selection of wine and for the food quality I believe the prices are reasonable.

Great food, great service! — Laura H., Yelp, April 2018

We went for my sister’s birthday and were so impressed! Great atmosphere, great food, and our server Milana couldn’t have been better. Highly recommend! — Victoria K, Trip Advisor

The mussels are a great choice to start off your dinner.( I think I enjoyed the sauce more than the mussels themselves) Ask for some dinner rolls so you can soak up more of the sauce! My husband ordered the coffee rub pork porterhouse medium (as the chef recommends ) it was juicy & had great flavor. I chose the 7 oz filet mignon and it was perfectly cooked. Overall the meals & the experience was perfect for our date night. I would suggest getting there a little early or making reservations because the place fills up quick! — Celestine W., Yelp reviews February 2018

Delicious and a great wine selection…Howard R., Google Reviews Dec. 2017

We frequent this restaurant for it excellent food and service. I don’t know if many people knows about the Monday Dinner special – a select list of wines at half price.
Doesn’t that add to the experience !!!
We had Rob as our server – he is so knowledgeable about wine we had a great time.
Dinner menu for us – beet salad, pasta of the day (pappdelle with beef sauce), and lamb chops. Our favorite!…Trip Advisor, Roberto32225

This is my favorite restaurant. Great food, awesome music, wonderful experience. Pizza, specials, live music most week nights. Just a great all around place to go. Love it….Trip Advisor, caribnsol99, Oct. 2017

My sis and I decided to eat here for dinner after a local couple exited the restaurant and highly recommended it while we were looking at the menu posted outside. Our waiter assured us that everything on the menu was fresh, never frozen. We had the brussel sprout appetizer which was delicious and different, very savory…The filet was grilled to a perfect medium rare as ordered and I made the clean plate club that night. Do not leave without ordering the bread pudding, which is made with croissants and had a heavenly sauce. I’m a cheesecake girl, but this dessert won me over. If I were eating this at home I would have secretly licked the dessert plate clean 🙂  Yelp, August 2017
–>Arrived at our hotel late on Friday, our first 2 venues had 2 hour waits! It was a little less here, but we took 2 spare seats at the bar. The food was great, I had King Klip fish which was really very good. I recommend making a reservation! We booked for a Taste of Morocco Night, 4 courses for $40 pp with taste wine accompanying each course for and additional $10 pp. We had a really great experience, beautiful food, good wine and excellent service in a Mediterranean styled restaurant.

–>This place is super romantic. Definitely call to reserve a window seat. Our waiter was the best! We heard other tables requesting him to serve them, even though the customer was not in his sitting area but he asked management and it was okay. The food is delicious! It’s romantic, it’s a must try.
->This is a cozy bistro with an exceptional menu offering many gf items. The frites are truly phenomenal!! In many restaurants the fries are cooked in the same oil as non-gf items but at Mezza they are cooked in a dedicated fryer! They are so delicious I was tempted to order a second one. We had seafood entrees and each of them was complimented with interesting and creative garnishes such as fingerling potatoes and black eyed peas with Tasso or taboule and carrots. Wonderful dining experience! They also serve pizza so if you are not gf try it. Trip Advisor
->Quite possibly my new favorite spot in Jax/Neptune Beach. This was our first trip to Mezza. It was a birthday and we had almost 20 people sitting in the lounge area. The restaurant is extremely clean and the staff is courteous and professional. They even had a birthday card and confetti on the tables upon arrival. I, the foodie of the group, was extremely anxious for the meal. Chef Justin formally worked for Daniel Boulod, one of my favorite world renowned chefs. Everyone’s meals were brought out at the same time and hot! The food was fantastic and their desserts were even better! It may have been the most impressive cheesecake we have ever had. We will be back very soon and soon after that! Thanks Mezza for making my birthday a great event! -Yelp review J.B

.⇒Good atmosphere and eclectic, inventive , tasty food. The service was attentive but not at all intrusive. Nice quiet dinner in the dining room. -R.R. Facebook review

 –>We stopped in before a Yelp event to have a drink. The environment in this place is upbeat but romantic! Sitting at the bar you can see all the fresh and amazing looking food coming out and being all dressed up. You can also watch them fresh bake personal pizzas in their wood fire stove. The drinks are priced fairly and the service is impeccable. We came during the dinner rush, but we didn’t have too much trouble finding seats at the bar. The crowd here is a littler more mature than the “beach bars”, which I like. This will be my choice for our next big date night out, their menu looks amazing.
 Wonderful atmosphere and food. Exceptional service. Beautiful dining room. Their bar is so much fun with the bartenders who take excellent care if you.-Trip Advisor Review
Excellent food and service..a must visit in the beach area! -D.S. Facebook review

Love Mezza Restaurant and Bar, have been going there for years now because not only is the food always delicious but the staff are always so friendly and accommodating! The restaurant is great for an intimate evening out but we prefer grabbing a seat at the bar to check out all the dishes as they leave the kitchen. Never disappointed with the scallops-perfect every time! – S. M. Facebook review

→Great food, helpful and friendly staff, lovely dining room and delicious drinks! A favorite place!!! Bravo to the Falloon’s who own it!!!!! -C.C. Facebook review

First time I was ever there and I was pleasantly surprised! Everything I had was great! -BC Facebook Reviewer

⇒Been in Jacksonville 4yrs and this was my first time eating at Mezza. Glad I discovered this place. Food was great, service was great, top notch all around. Ask for Rob as your server. He was amazing! Introduced me to Boddingtin’s Ale. Wow! Thanks Rob. Do yourself a favor and eat here. -Eric C. Yelp review

  → So…. From the moment I walked in, everything about this place says, “excellence.” You can tell that it is locally owned by the level of customer service you get. We had Rob wait on us, absolutely amazing service! I mean really, you just don’t get that kind of service much anymore. And then comes the food! Amazing! We were eating with friends. My buddy got the pork tenderloin. His wife got the sea-bass. And my wife got scallops. I got a wood fired pizza. I tried each of them, being the good reviewer I try to be :), and I am telling you that each entree was superb! People, this is a MUST visit. The atmosphere is top notch as well. Mezza, you gained a lifelong customer tonight! Rob, I’m asking for you each time buddy. Thanks for the great service. -C.T. Yelp review

   →I LOVE THIS PLACE!!! I brought my wife here for dinner to celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary. I’d tried to get in for Valentine’s Day but they were booked solid. It was a perfect meal. We had the calamari and brussel sprouts as appetizers. Both were exceptionally good. I had the salmon on a tzatziki bed and my wife had the scallops. Again, exceptional food, prepared very well. We had a 7:30 reservation and were seated immediately. The place was pretty packed on a Saturday night but our service was excellent. Love the fact that they have more casual types of food……pizza, and more casual seating if desired. We will definitely be back!!!! -Yelp review M.M.
