First review
 
Café Mezza & Grille is a fusion restaurant with menu items from Greek, American and Middle Eastern cuisines. There are a variety of salads and pastas as well as meat and vegetable platters. Mezza is in a nondescript shopping center near Galleria Mall and has a single location.

The restaurant has a square-shape dining room with an open kitchen design. There is a small bar located near the entrance. The decorations have a Mediterranean style feel and conjure up thoughts of Tuscany. Tables fill the center of the dining room and booths line the walls. Terrace seating is avilable as well. The restaurant is non-smoking but smoking is permitted on the terrace. Mezza has a casual and mellow atmosphere with light rock music in the background.

Many appetizers have a Greek influence and among the various tempting options, baba ganoush got the nod. It had a zesty taste that worked well with some warm bread for dipping. A tomato basil soup was topnotch. Served piping hot and with a mouthwatering tomato and pepper taste, the soup was the type of dish that could lead one to lick the bowl. A spicy Mediterranean pizza on the other hand was not as appetizing and was served lukewarm. None of the ingredients really stood out, and the cheese was too heavy. It tasted better with a heavy dose of crushed red pepper. A bread pudding dessert which had a rich custard taste was decorated with an interesting brittle pastry. The pudding also included vanilla ice-cream and worked well with the rest of the meal. The service was pleasant and professional. Also, there was no pressure to leave after the meal so there was plenty of time to drink tea and hang out. The pace of the meal service from taking the order to presenting the bill was well timed. Overall, eating here was a pleasant experience, and Mezza merits a return visit to try more of the menu. The restaurant can get crowded on weekends but reservations are accepted.
