Diner Reviews
  • "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!!!!"

  • "The food and service at Mezza is fantastic. I had hummus, felafel and crab cake appetizers..all so flavorful and delicious. Then a hangar steak shish kebob with cous cous and israeli salad..again all delicious. You realize how much food we eat is mediocre when you have food like this that wakes up your taste buds!!"

  • "We found this place by accident, but have been coming back every now and then for the souffle :) The appetizers are always great! The grilled octopus we had was divine. Duck entree is delicious every time! Out of 3 souffle's we ordered 2 were amazing, one was a bit overcooked, but overall - great experience!"

  • "We have been wanting to try this place for a while and all i have to say Is amazing. We had a great time it was cozy and romantic. The service was very friendly and helped us decide what to have. Cant wait to return because there are so many other dishes that we would like to try. Thank you for a great evening."

  • "A bit pricey for average good . If you are going to charge NYC prices-- the food, service and experience have to be exceptional-- they were not . If price was in line with NJ-- this would be a good pick. Long story short, I don't want to pay BMW prices fora Hundai."

  • "We went to Mezza for the first time and it was wonderful. The menu was interesting and varied and everything we ordered was delicious. The staff was very accommodating and couldn't have been nicer. We asked about the difficult dinner hours on Saturday and Sunday and they said they would be flexible. It's a lovely atmosphere and we will definitely go back."

  • "Went with some friends Sat. night. Our table was ready when we got there even though the place was crowded. We ordered the special appetizer, stuffed artichoke, and two dips - the hummus and the butternut squash dip. They were all delicous, but the hummus was some of the best I've eaten. Two of us ordered the branzino, one skirt steak and one shishkabob. The branzino was the best I ever ate. The skirt steak was slightly chewy but very flavorful and the kabobs were good but not great. The atmosphere was nice and friendly. The owner stopped by to see how everything was going. The special dessert was ricotta balls, that were served on a tree with two dipping sauces - something to see and delicious too. Definitely a keeper."

  • "We have been coming to this restaurant since it opened in its former location. The restaurant used to be fairly priced. The food and service have always been good, however, they don't justify the recent price increases. Most entrees and now priced at about $30.00 and they do not come with a salad, so that is another $10 - $12.00. Unfortunatly, we will have to think twice before we come here as often as we used to."

  • "We discovered Mezza by accident last year and have been coming back ever since. The staple and the highlight for us has always been Chocolate Souffle - it was definitely worth it. However, on this visit it turned out to be disappointing, a bit dry and overcooked. Also, we have been telling all our friends so much about the souffle that another couple came with us, and unfortunately, it turned out not to be the best one. Other than that, the appetizers were great as usual. Can't say enough about Smoked Eggplant over Black Tahini, the tuna special was amazing, and Moroccan Chicken Tagine was delicious. Noticed that the prices went a bit up too. Hoping for better Chocolate Souffle next time! And would like to try the Ricotta Fritters as well."

  • "The ambiance was very nice. The waiter was attentive and very well mannered. The Oso Buco was pretty good. The rice was okay. The braised short ribs lacked flavor. The kale was soggy and average at best. The Octopus appetizer was really good. The prices, $29 per entree, although not expensive, were far too high considering the quality of the food."

  • "I have never had an entree I didn't like The hummus is amazing! Never had hummus anywhere that was this good! The tastes and quality are amazing. I have been there 5 times in the last 2 months! I crave their food! I was reluctant in writing this review because if it gets too busy, I won't get a reservation! Why go to NY when you have this quality right here in Bergen County!"

  • "Fabulous food! Definitely one of the finer restaurants in the area. Very charming interior and culinary caliber food. We dined there on a quiet Sunday evening following a snowstorm. The service was excellent and they paid attention to our gluten-free diet by offering veggie sticks instead of bread."

  • "Many Middle Eastern treats that are described extremely well by our server. We grazed on many small dishes instead of a true three course meal.i don 't know about the main dishes but we had ten small plates. Falafel,haloumi cheese, Dolmas, two dishes spreads,arugula salad with grilled octopus ( this was a little rubbery instead of crunchy) and more. The butternut squash spread was unique. Dessert was a rice pudding with Brûlée top that was plenty for three and very creamy."

  • "If you're foodies as we are, it was a great surprise to find a menu of this sophistication so close to home. Very creative. Chicken tangine was perfect. All four in our party had different dishes. All were excellent! Portions very generous. Great next day meal! In spite of how full we were, my husband still had to have dessert, when he saw the selections. If you like Halavah, you will think you died and went to heaven with the Halavah ICE CREAM! INSANE! Served in a sauce with wide shreds of Halavah all over the top. (Looked like shredded mozzarella!) So, if you are tired of the other usual mundane cuisines, give Mezza a try! You will be delighted."

  • "We went to Mezza for the first time based on reading reviews and were not disappointed--in fact our expectations were exceeded! Everyone in our party of six enjoyed the meal. The atmosphere is just the right mix of casual and trendy. When two in our group requested an entree special as an appetizer for a starter, the wish was granted without any fuss. The BYOB feature is always a plus. All in all, everyone agreed that they will return to Mezza!"

  • "I've lived in Bergen County almost my whole life and eat out frequently and I have to say this is the probably the best dinner I've had around here. The ambience of the new location is beautiful, romantic and a great setting for a quiet conversation or lively night out. I had the skirt steak and it was absolutely delicious. We didn't have dessert but the table next to us had the Ricotta Fritters and the presentation was really stunning. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a nice night out."
