Our server Adam was very attentive, making sure our cocktails and water glasses were full. He was well versed with the menu and even recommended what I ordered. Food arrived on time and was beyond what we expected, it was SUPER DELICIOUS!! Wonderful experience and I highly recommend seating on the patio.

Used to live nearby and ate here about 50 times over the years, however this was our first time back since pre-pandemic. It's still fantastic. The inside ambience is warm, the outside patio is airy. The cocktails have always been inventive and delicious and still are. And the food is high end, well crafted comfort food.

We had a wonderful lunch! Adam, our server, was so attentive and very kind to bring my little dog a water dish! He also had no qualms about splitting the check 4 ways by our seat number, which most servers don’t like to do. The food is always fantastic at Messhall! We will definitely be back!

Food was incredible, unreal risotto and salmon. My server was the kindest person - had a really rough day and he instantly made it better with attentive service and good conversation. Will definitely be returning - thanks Messhall!

This was not a good experience. The food was very bland on the whole, and my harvest salad was clearly not very fresh. We asked for the speciality biscuits - when they came out they were hardcore burnt. Although we weren't charged for them, what a waste. Coffee comes out lukewarm, and although I ordered an Americano, it tasted more like filter coffee - I can't be certain of this though. Our waitress was lovely, but that's not enough to get us to come back to this place, despite a voucher for replacement biscuits.

The service and ambiance was great, the pulled pork and short ribs was excellent. The Cobb salad was average at best, the baby kale with ahi tuna was good and would have been better had the tuna not been over cooked

We shared the roasted chicken and house salad and it was plenty of food for 2 women. I eat the dark meat and she eats the light meat, so a perfect option. Next time I think I'll try the Turkey Burger. Went on to the Greek for the Monkees' Final Tour and walked back. A pleasant evening and glad to be out again.

As tables filled up the noise level made it really hard to have a conversation.

Very nice lunch with a good friend not seen in two years! Our server was kind & patient & allowed us to take our time. Food and drink were delicious. I would only say that given the liveliness of the conversations around us, the music was a bit loud & competitive.

Food is always very decent, servers are great, but the bar is super super slow and in one instance completely thought they made our order and we waited 15-20 mins. It seems odd on a not so busy evening that they would want to keep the drinks going. No sense of urgency. Very strange but it happens a lot there.
