Our new favorite restaurant. Everything is perfect from the way the hummus is presented to the chocolate souffle It was Valentine's day and the menu was perfect. As I left I was given a beautiful rose. They definitely know what they are doing!

Been going to this restaurant since it opened and always more than satisfied. However, this Valentines Day the staff was overwhelmed even though we were early (6:15). Waited almost an hour for entree which delivered barely warm and had to be sent back. Then waited for kitchen to prepare an entirely new pair of entrees. The result was hot and tasty.

Disappointing meal after a very good experience several weeks ago. Food was average at best and not memorable for any of us. I expected to have the same delicious, high quality meal I have previously enjoyed here, but definitely a disappointing experience.

This was our fourth time out at Mezza and it seems to get better each time. The grilled octopus is grilled to perfection, the short ribs were memorable and the seafood risotto steals the show. Our waiter, ?Ryan, was great, added to the enjoyable experience. This has become one of our favorite local restaurants.

I have been to Mezza multiple times and was never disappointed until this time, I felt like it fell a bit short. The artichoke appetizer, which I was really looking forward to, was not very hot and mostly crumbs, not much meat to the artichoke. The dinners were good. Over the years they have become one of the more expensive BYOB's in the area and maybe that's why I'm not as forgiving. Our waitress was wonderful. Their hummus is still awesome, , however I hope this was just a lukewarm night overall.

They make the best hummus. The pita bread is always warm and fluffy. I had the shrimp and orzo dish. It was tasty, but shrimp were a little over cooked and dry. The service was friendly and accommodating. It's a neighborhood staple.

Went here on a Monday evening with a client. We were one of 3 tables which meant we had the attention of their staff. Our waitress was very friendly and knew the menu very well. Her recommendations were right on the mark. We ordered a number of appetizers that were all excellent (a cauliflower dish, hummus, grilled octopus and some other dips). One of the specials was a Grouper over Israeli couscous. The fish was spiced just right and the flavor was terrific. One of the better pieces of grouper i've had. Others at the table ordered steak which was also very good.
In addition to enjoying a great meal, this is a BYOB. BINGO! Overall, an outstanding meal and i'll be back with my wife on a weekend. Enjoy

Mezza was great. We got the mezza, which was a choice of three dips. The hummus, Moroccan tomato spread, and the roasted eggplant were so delicious. We also ordered the crispy cauliflower, which was amazing, great texture and flavor. Everyone loved there entrees. I got the duck, which was great, but I preferred my boyfriend’s skirt steak. The flavor on that was absolutely amazing. Overall, great night.

Having read some negative reviews on yelp (although most were 4 star) my wife and I were pleasantly surprised. The restaurant was decorated in a very classy look. The food was delicious and the service was extremely friendly and conscientious. A good night all and all.

We brought friends from outside the area to Mezza. While we had not been there in a while, the food is consistent. Two orders of crab cakes and one of the baked cauliflower started the meal after we had shared hummus and pita (we like to start with the hummus as it speeds up our men selections).

For the main course, we selected the shrimp dish, the salmon and each of the lamb entrees (the shank and the rack special). Each of them were thoroughly enjoyed.

For desert we shared a chocolate soufflé and the ricotta fritters, each needing to be ordered in advance.

Service and food are consistently good. For this, we try to return with some regularity.

Delicious food. The service was great. We were looking for a good meal for a date night. This place fit perfectly. It was a bit pricey, but I would recommend it for a few couples to go out or a date night. It is BYOB and it is an intimate setting.
