Diner Reviews
  • "I have been to this restaurant for lunch before and it was amazing. Dinner menu i am not crazy about, would like more salad options for ex. Mezza Chop salad. We sat in the private dinning area, and our waitress was not very attentive, had to ask every time we needed water. Maybe if we were sitting in the main dinning area we would have had better attention. Also my friend order was wrong and they brought out the shrimp instead of the steak that she ordered, and for got her appetizer salad. I will still come back for sure, but probably more during lunch time. Love the hummus, crab cakes and falafel."

  • "Thank you Mezza for hosting my birthday dinner! We all had fantastic time! The food was delicious as always. Falafel and eggplant tahini - amazing. My friends loved the duck. I am always looking forward to chocolate souffle and this time you really outdone yourself! Great compliments to the chef for all the souffles! Tried the ricotta fritters for the first time - will definitely be a new favorite."

  • "We came to Mezza for the first time since they moved to the new location. We arrived pretty early(6pm). There were only a few tables seated. We ordered an appetizer to share which was very tasty but sat for 50 minutes waiting for the main courses. Ended up drinking way too much and eating too much pita bread because of the long wait! Food was excellent though."

  • "We eat out a lot, and Mezza is really a restaurant that is memorable. The food is truly wonderful. Everything is fresh and the fish is excellent. I do not like a lot of sauces on my food, and this restaurant flavors their entrees without drowning them in sauces. It's becoming one of my favorites."

  • "We have visited Mezza several times, and always look forward to the creamy, smooth hummus, the smoky baba ganoush, and the warm fresh pita. Our friendly server was professional, perky, and knowledgable. We both ordered the grouper special, and thoroughly enjoyed the fresh, flaky fish, served over risotto and topped with lightly sautéed spinach. We skipped dessert, but our cappucinos were frothy and strong. The dining room can get very loud, but we sat outside on a warm Saturday evening, and pretended we were somewhere more exotic than opposite a NYSC gym. It's become a regular spot for us, and we look forward to introducing more friends to this gem."

  • "Mezza has been our favorite restaurant in Westwood since it opened several years ago. It has a partial Mediterranean focus and is BYOB, so be sure to bring a good wine along. The salads are consistently fresh and innovative. You can order good tabouleh, hummus, etc., along with flatbreads, though we usually skip that part to focus on the entrees. There are typically several seafood options. The salmon came exactly as ordered (well done, not sushi). The eggplant parmesan, a new dish, was excellent. Their most unique dish is a Moroccan chicken tangine, which comes hot inside a dish with a spout-like top. We recommend the chocolate souffle for dessert. Quiet atmosphere with subdued lighting. The service is good, but not intrusive."

  • "I had chicken tagine and coffee. The bill with the 20 percent tip was 40 dollars. The meal was uninspiring. My three friends aggreed with me and none of us will return."

  • "We are new to the area and decided to try Mezza for its reputation for outstanding food. We were pleased to find everything we ordered very tasty, with a variety of interesting choices. The policy of BYOB was also welcome and allowed us to bring our favorite wine. Our only criticism of this restaurant was its noise level. We went on a Saturday night, and although it was late, 10:00, it was still quite crowded and very loud. We found it difficult to carry on a normal conversation, given the excessive clammer. We will definitely return, but next time, at a less busy and quieter time."

  • "we arrived to an empty restaurant with early reservations, we requested a table by the window and were told that those tables would be pushed together for a large party. we were seated along the back wall towards the inside corner near the restrooms. We then watched them seat all the window tables individually. The food was good, not great, and expensive. We will not be going back. We do not like being lied to."

  • "Another outstanding meal. We starting going when they were originally on Westwood ave. Food specials are always changing and the service is excellent. Me and my wife love eating at Mezza! It was her birthday and they had made a special birthday dessert. "

  • "This was, for the majority of my group,our third visit to Mezza. We are a group of 10 women with varying tastes, and rarely do we all agree that a restaurant is wonderful...we especially like the private room that accommodates us. The staff if very friendly and efficient (DELIGHTFUL young waitress; wish I could remember her name!) and the food is always delicious. The only comment I would make is that I like to see seasonal changes on a menu...to me it is getting too warm to eat short ribs or lamb shanks....and would enjoy some shish kebabs and add'l warm weather fare. Great place!"

  • "our first time at Mezza, we had dinner reservations for 6 at 6pm we ran 20 mins behind schedule, due to thunderstorm, slower traffic for drop off of kids we arrived at 6:25, Well upon our entrance, a waitress stepped in at desk while hostess was in bathroom, waitress, did not welcome us, immediately pointed out that the next seating for our table is at 8:15 and it is now 6:30. Insinuating that finished or not, we must leave at 8:15 for next party! she was blantantly rude &was not her place to comment. we left promptly at 8:15, with no dessert & no other party waiting for the table, there was amble seating. Being welcomed in such a manner doesn't make me want to refer friends to such establishment, even if the food was that good!"

  • "The Mezza is a bit pricey ($7 a pop) for a small bowl of bread topping Overall good"
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "Overpriced with bad service only good part was the ambience and that you could bring your own wine"
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "I've been to Mezza multiple times but this most recent meal may have been the best. Fabulous grilled octopus appetizer and grouper entree, both specials for that evening only, alas. My companions had braised lambshank and grilled flank steak kabob, both outstanding, the best I've tasted. And don't forget the amazing Israeli pita bread and hummus. Quietly attentive service, friendly without being intrusive. Reasonable prices considering the very high quality of the food and presentation, with BYOB policy making the evening even more affordable. Don't miss Mezza!"

  • "6 of us went for Mother's Day and it was terrific! The ambience is very nice, our waitress was very good, and the food was outstanding. 2 complaints: the busboy kept trying to take the spreads we ordered as starters away when we weren't finished with them - he didn't ask us either. And there are no entrees vegetarians - salads yes, but nothing more substantial. It would be easy to add one option for veggie people. "

  • "We are happy to have found this very good restaurant, that is not a chain, like so many in Paramus. Although not located in Paramus, it's worth the short drive. Everything was fresh and delicious. Many wonderful appetizers and loved the halibut!"

  • "I had a difficult time finding something to eat. However, if you like the kind of food offered, it is very good. Others in my group raved about the hummus, the Halva ice cream and the rice pudding. I started the meal with the soup of the day which was cream of butternut squash soup. It was good but I've had better. For my main course, I had the baked eggplant which was a large portion and pretty good. The pita bread was excellent. This is a byob establishment. "

  • "Love the various choices on the menu. I wish they would post the prices of the specials next to the item on the chalk board or tell you how much each costs when reciting the various offerings It's a very pretty place courtesy of the candle light. Unfortunately it was VERY hard to hear ourselves as the room was packed and the acoustics poor Our side of brussel sprouts was MIA and arrived after 2/3 of the meal was consumed - after alerting the friendly waitress who seemed to have too many tables to cover"

  • "I needed water for ten minutes. I kept looking for a waiter waitress or bus boy. No one! The issue interuppted our meal, as I was thirsty and needed water to wash my food down. Our table was only drinking water. I had to go to the bus station to get the water myself, instead I trip on an uneven lip Of the floor( obvious to the staff as this was an area for employees . I saw two waiter/waitress and said we need water! We have been looking for you for ten minutes. I went back to my seat. At that point the waitress tried to take my food away, " I adam not done". What are u doing. If you brought my water when I needed it perhaps I would have been. I had half my dinner on my plate, I don't get the terrible service!!!!"
