Mezza Grill has become my favorite restaurant. Everything is delicious. You must try the lamb chops, and shishkabobs. But one of new favorites are the seafood skewers. They are so tender moist, grilled to perfection. Everything is delicious. You won't be disappointed, can't wait to go back.

My girlfriend and I went to Mezza Grille on a date and it really far exceeded my expectations. Our server, Breanna, was friendly and attentive (and funny!) and was a great waitress the entire night. Very accommodating. The atmosphere of the restaurant is quite nice without being stuffy or pretentious. It’s the kind of place you might take the parents of your significant other to show that you care to take them to a nice place without being too showy or over-the-top. The food was phenomenal. We had some meat kebabs and lamb shanks for our main courses and both were great but the lamb was especially good considering how tender it was. It was so soft I had trouble pinching it with my fork because it would split from being cooked so perfectly! The sauce it came in was also a great dip to soak the basmati rice it came with. I also ordered a side of mushroom risotto and it was incredibly creamy and flavorful. Not to mention our two appetizers: the baked goat cheese and the pecan-crusted Brie. Both were excellent, but the Brie was absolutely to die for. It came with a jalapeño strawberry jam and it paired exquisitely. I would honestly go back just for that Brie. My only complaint was that the cocktail (a strawberry mule) was VERY expensive ($12) but I kind of expected the price to be high. It was delicious, but not $12 delicious. Overall it was a spectacular dining experience and I can’t wait to come back and tell other people about this place!

An excellent fusion of Middle East & American cuisine. I highly recommend the mixed grill for those folks like me who can’t make a decision on just one entree. The white chocolate bread pudding is the best I’ve ever had.

I was concerned at first as the server was not very friendly and then it was my birthday and would not allow us to bring our own cake, unfortunately I wasin the hospital 3 weeks ago and I'm very restricted on what I can eat so that was disappointing. The owner came to explain why the policy was in place and it made things better as our server Omar was nice, friendly and thoughtful. I ordered the grilled vegetables platter that includes scalloped potatoes and the thought of me not being able to eat dairy si he suggested a substitution for rosemary roasted potatoes, delicious!! The food was worth not being able to bring in my own cake, lol.. price is reasonable, food is delicious and Omar's service excellent!! My family had found a new favorite place :)

Wow what a surprise under our nose!!!! Stimson our server was delightful!! The food was fresh excellent and delicious.
Big surprise of the meal? Tres leches. Umm yes they have a great one that is moist!! I don't know if I like it with the coconut on top but it has the true royal icing as it should and not just the whip cream everyone else uses as a way out. Took 3 other coworkers and they all loved our meal! :)

This was a wonderful meal all around. My s-i-l had the Lemon Butter Chicken which was absolutely delicious. The potatoes that came with it were mouth watering. I had the Spicy Lamb and thoroughly enjoyed it. I was a little concerned about the term "spicy" and asked the server. She said it was really the sauce that was served on the side that is spicy. So that's what I got and it was great. And the sauce was really not spicy at all. Our server, Breanna, was wonderful. I'd definitely go back and highly recommend it. The only down side was that it was a birthday celebration, and I had stated that in my reservation, but there was no mention of it. No dessert or glass of champagne or anything. Oh well. I'll still go back as soon as I can.

We have eaten at Mezza Grill often and never had a bad meal. The waitress was sweet but my husband ordered a meal which was very dry and when we told the waitress she said the sauce had not been served and she would get it. Well half his meal was done by the time we got it and there was only an apology which our company felt was not enough. We took them because we wanted to introduce them to Mezza. Too bad

The dip and chips before dinner were fabulous. I had chicken breast stuffed with mangos and other goodies. It was done perfectly. I was concerned how this would turn out but it sounded so good and was very tender. You need to like mango though. ;)
I want to go back and have their house salad for lunch! It looked amazing.
