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.

Although full, they promptly honored reservation for 2nd seating at 8:00. Staff was cheery, helpful and knowledgeable. Both our dishes were delicious and prepared with whatever changes we made to the menu items. The hummus was outstanding, Mediterranean salad very good and both the bronzino and seafood couscous were delicious. I will definitely go again.

We were seated near the drafty door when there were plenty of other tables available, we were there at 6:30. The server was very nice and helpful. When it came time to pay we were very rushed. They clearly did t want us sitting there and they made it known. I would not go back any time soon. I also would not order the salmon again.

We were seated at a table in a small private room with two tables behind a heavy drape. It was secluded and less noisy than the main dining room. Ryan was our server who attended to us with expertise & promptness. We ordered a serving of lentil soup, babaganoush, & cigar rolls. Last time I was at Mezza I thought I remembered some hummus at the table with the pita bread. None this time. Our cigar roll appetizers were served late after the other two people at our table had already finished their apps. Main entrees were duck, hangar steak kebobs, grouper, lamb lollipops. My grouper was delicious over risotto although quite a stingy serving. Duck was unimpressive and wouldn’t be ordered again. Lollipop lamb chops were delicious and prepared well. Hanger steak kebobs not a big hit. I do have to recommend the yummy fried ricotta balls served on a metal “tree” with lemon sauce & chocolate sauce. Unique presentation.

We loved our pre Valentine visit to Mezza! The service was polite and just the right amount of attentive, including a chat with the owner. Food was delicious, from the hummus and pita to the grilled branzino and hearty lamb shank, to the bright flavored cantaloupe sorbet and herbal tea, we were impressed. Not so rich that we were overly stuffed, and with fresh Mediterranean flavors in our memories, we left wanting to return soon!

We had a great evening with some good friends. The apps were fantastic, especially the octopus and halloumi. The entrees were great too, the sea bass special was a standout. Our server Elizabeth suggested the Lemon Tart for dessert, and it was one of my all time favorites. Fantastic crust and perfect tartness. This was a nice evening and can't wait to go back.

Food is always terrific, no complaints there. My only real issue is their 2 hour dining windows on the weekends. I understand the limit, however we had a 6:30 reservation, and I wanted to order the chocolate souffle which said took 30 minutes to bake. I tried to order it at 7:45 and was told it was "too late". Really? Very obnoxious in my opinion, since I had 45 minutes left on my reservation. Plus, they make no bones about basically kicking you out, as they put the check on our table at 8:30.

Amazing! Everyone from the hostess to our waiter Marty was so kind & friendly & attentive. It felt like we had eaten there for years! The food was delicious I ordered the chicken tajine & it was so juicy & full of flavor! If you are looking for drinks it is a BYOB but the hostess did let us know about a store nearby in case we were thirsty. Would absolutely go back again!
