Our server may have been new, seemed unfamiliar with the menu, one appetizer came out wrong, never checked on us or refilled sparkling water. Also, almost everything that comes out of the kitchen is under-salted. We already love the food and will return, but it would really take the food from 3/4 star to 5 star if the chef/line cooks would season things a bit better.

Good food, lousy front desk. Told us we had to be gone by 7:30 and we couldn’t sit at a window because our reservation was two prior and notcearlier. Not good. Very bad for business.

Service was good. Food was average. Chicken was dry. Been to Mezza a few times. This time food was not consistent with the other times.

Consistently delicious with perfectly timed courses. The decor and ambience are beautiful and tranquil any time of day. BYOB keeps it affordable. Value far better and food more outstanding than others with bar service.

Mezza is one of my favorite places to eat. The entire staff make you feel so welcome and are always concerned that you are enjoying the food and surroundings. The food is consistently good at Mezza and I was delighted to see some new items since my last visit. Keep up the great work!

We celebrated my husband's birthday at Mezza. Upon making the reservations,
I indicated it was my husband's birthday, and upon our arrival there was a birthday greeting on the table beautifully created by our waitress Liz. Mezza was exceptional from the ambiance, our waitress Liz, and the food. Definitely a resturant we will go back to and recommend to our friends and family.

While the food is still good, in several ways Mezza is not up to its earlier quality - they are often out of dishes relatively early in the evening, and the prices keep rising while the quality does not improve. As one of the more expensive restaurants in this part of Bergen County, it is no longer a "go to" choice for an excellent and reasonably-priced meal - at these prices, more is expected.

Was there on a week night so it was not overcrowded or noisy . The hummus was outstanding as was the cauliflower appetizer. Main course was lamb shank which was one of the best I have ever eaten. Food was prepared well, served hot and overall, terrific. Highly recommend.

Mezza has been consistently a great value. The service is excellent and the food delicious and artfully presented. Try the 'new' Israeli shish kebob - great. Noise levels can increase as the evening gets later but still tolerable. In all, a great treat to return to again and again.

Charming little family run Mediterranean place for tasty food. However, the policy of letting their few outdoor tables be reserved is annoying especially since two of those tables sat empty despite my interest, for 45 minutes while we ate our dinner. Think they could’ve juggled them a bit better to accommodate my interest as well. Waitress was fun but very forgetful. Didn’t bring my husband’s sida despite 2 requests until the end. She should have offered him a free refill I think. And we had told it was a birthday when we made the reservation, and reminded the ladies at the check-in stand when we arrived, but still nothing special was done to acknowledge the celebration. Sad

This was our first time here and we had an excellent dinner. We started off with several appetizers of delicious Moroccan cigars which were braised short ribs wrapped in crispy phyllo dough with an herb infused tahini dipping sauce. We also shared Israeli fish tacos with branzino, Israeli salad, yogurt spread, and Dukkah nut mixture. Our third appetizer was crispy cauliflower with raisins, toasted pine nuts, and scallions, in a lemon and parsley infused tahini sauce. For entrees my wife had an almond crusted grouper with sautéed spinach, tomato, lemon and brown butter sauce and cauliflower puree. I had a sweet and savory Moroccan chicken tagine with Goffle Farm braised chicken, couscous, eggplant, preserved lemon, apricots, raisins, and currants.

Dinner at Mezza never disappoints. Quality, and presentation of our meal, and excellent wait staff made our evening one to remember!
I have dietary restrictions. The knowledgeable kitchen staff, and willingness to substitute ingredients makes me feel safe to eat here. It is a restaurant I will return to time and time again!
Thank you!

I love that the menu changes often and usually contains chooses not on every other restaurant menu. The special roasted octopus appetizer was magnificent. Perfect in every way. My friend had the grouper special for dinner and really enjoyed it. I would have ordered it also but I am gluten intolerant. I should have asked if they could have prepared a non gluten option. I had the branzino off the regular menu. It was ok but very salty.
The soufflé dessert was great.

We've been wanting to try Mezza for sometime; I finally took my friend for her birthday and it was a wonderful experience. Fresh ingredients and exotic Middle-Eastern spices made the appetizers and entree we shared amazing. Dessert featured one of the best chocolate souffles I've ever had and these incredible ricotta fritters. The staff was extremely friendly, especially our server Tatiana. We are looking forward to returning when the weather is nice and we can sit outside.
