    Derived from the word 'meze,' meaning small plates, the bistro-meets-tavern cuisine is inspired by Greek, Italian, Israeli, and other Mediterranean flavors. They also have great drink deals! Read more

    New. Mediterranean. If you're looking for a flavorful tapas-style meal using fresh ingredients, Mezetto is the place for you. Taste: Truffled gnocchi, Lamb meatballs, and Grilled skirt steak Read more

    The brunch here really exceeded expectations. All food was delicious, which is not necessarily the norm for bottomless mimosa spots. The option of various juices to go in mimosas is appreciated.

    Chef Bahr Rapaport includes Spanish chorizo in his shakshuka because he "wanted to show how different flavors from around the Mediterranean can meld into one another." Read more

    Champagne happy hour at the bar ($6 until 730) before our 8pm dinner reservation. Gnocchi and quinoa salad were great! This place is small but it has atmosphere. Could stay all night.

    Try the Grilled Octopus and the Brussel Sprouts w/ Figs and Gorgonzola. Food was great, but the restaurant itself is a bit crammed. There is also a ton of construction on Houston so it's a bit chaotic

    Get the falafel buns, grilled avocado salad, truffled gnocchi and sweet potatoes; sit at the high top table to avoid the high traffic movement from the wait staff - the restaurant is quite cozy

    Gnocchi was excellent, a must. The grilled avocado salad and Mezetto trio both stood out as well. Great service! Highly recommend.

    This place is the bomb, hands down. The friendliest service I've ever had, amazing food, unique cocktails. Brussels sprouts and figs are amazing, as are the falafel buns

    Come for a cocktail on a low humidity night. Sit at the bar, have a marg and enjoy the breeze whipping off Houston and Allen. But if you don't look and drown out the horns, you could be on a beach.

    Lots of fruity mimosas to keep the gossip flowing during your boozy brunch 💁🏻. Shakshuka is delicious. The grilled cheese is a nice alternative.

    Amazing food. Definitely get the grilled shrimp, the eggplant caviar dip and the sweet potato plate. Everything was delish though, can't really go wrong.

    Absolutely obsessed with their spicy feta and lamb burger! If you're considering the hummus or eggplant caviar, skip both. Trust me.

    My girlfriend wanted to grab a bite here and I wanted to pee. They were closed so my girlfriend unfortunately did not get to try their well-rated food but they let me pee anyway. That's a rare gem. 👍

    Steak hash was pretty good. The portions are a bit small. Definitely a little pricey for what you get.

    For the price, all of the dishes were lackluster. The octopus was too dry, the steak just felt plain. The dishes have a healthy take on them. You won't walk out feeling bloated.
