What an absolutely fabulous dining experience. The food combinations were surprising and delicious! Who would have thought that roasted corn ice cream would be to die for? First went to the Herb Lyceum about 20 or more years ago when the original chef - Gilson son, Will Gilson, was just a teenager with a gift for preparing phenomenal meals for his guests. The charm then, and now, although Will has moved on to be the owner of several restaurants now, was the chefs joining you for each course, explaining the pairings, etc. A truly delightful evening!!! And the cost is incredibly low considering the incredible quality of he meal! Even my Big Apple guest who has access to some of the finest restaurants in the world in NYC was blown away! Simply love this place!!! Can't recommend it highly enough!

We chose to dine at Mezze for our anniversary, second year in a row. Wonderful place, great in every aspect that a restaurant should be. Love the 3 course prix fixe, great selections and a server and kitchen willing to accommodate diet restrictions. Claire was a perfect server, there when you needed something. The prix fixe dinner, while not inexpensive, is a real value because each course is outstanding. Bravo Mezze!

We always enjoy our time at Russo’s. We wanted to share one of our favorite restaurants with friends and requested the wine room for the ambience. Unfortunately it was closed. Still had a good dinner but the main room is always so much louder.

Eric, who was our server and also the GM, rolled out the red carpet for us. He made what was already a special evening, unforgettable. This was our first time, but many more to follow.
