Lebanese
Leave the bustle of London’s ‘theatreland’ behind you for the buzz and charm of the Middle East! Maison du Mezzé is the Capital’s best Middle-East dining experience, offering authentic Lebanese-inspired brunch, lunch and dinner dishes with the warmest hospitality. All dishes are freshly prepared daily in the restaurant kitchen using the finest seasonal produce and, of course, spices and herbs from our Middle East heartland. The interior is set over two floors and all part of the Middle-East experience with Arabian carpets and artwork, gilded ceiling and a mix of banquette and booth-style seating separated by ferns and trailing plants. The large covered outdoor terrace beckons in finer weather where you can also enjoy a Shisha in true Middle-East style.

Repas excellent mais trop copieux à notre goût.
Pour ma fille et moi, nous n’avons pas pu tout finir, et donc gaspillé.
Tarif correct pour les mets proposés.
Un très bon thé à la menthe

I had made a reservation on OpenTable and had requested outdoor seating on the app. When I got there the hostess told me that they did not except reservations for outdoor seating. I told her that OpenTable had given me the option and I had chosen it. She ended up splitting a table of four for me so I could sit out there. I didn’t realize that it was also a hookah bar, and once I had ordered my food I was inundated with the smell of sweet smoke. If you are sensitive to this kind of thing then you may want to avoid the outdoor patio. I didn’t go inside so I don’t know if they also smoked inside. My food was very good and came very quickly. I wish I hadn’t been dining alone so that I could’ve tried more food because everything I saw coming out looked and smelled very good. The bread was amazing. I don’t usually eat bread and I almost turned it away when they put the basket down, but once I saw it I knew I had to have it :)

The service from start to finish was friendly and helpful without being overwhelming. We had a selection of hot and cold mezze that was delicious and beautifully presented and I wish I could have sampled them all but that will need to wait for my next visit. For somebody who loves Lebanese food as much as I do it was an amazing treat.

Menu online said the pre-theatre included a glass of prosecco but when we got there we were told quite rudely this was not the case.
I believe the waitresses attitude changed towards us as well when she found out we were only paying for the fixed price menu rather than the full main menu.
She rushed us through our ordering and made us feel like second rate customers.

Chose to sit outside so shouldn't have been surprised that it was pretty noisy. They seemed to be playing quite loud music inside as well though. For a pre-theatre menu the service was slow and we had to ask them to hurry up more than once. The food was a bit disappointing. I didn't mind the felafels but my friend wasn't keen on the taste. The spicy fish didn't look very appetising in its dark brown sauce though it tasted OK. It could have done with something green on the side as well as just chips which seemed an odd accompaniment. Middle Eastern desserts are always too sweet for me. Only had half of mine (the choice that wasn't baklava). An extra glass of prosecco cost an eye-watering £7.95.

Great experience here for my fiancé’s birthday dinner! Service and staff was brilliant, would have given 5 stars for the food apart from the grilled vegetables - didn’t expect to have a bowl of ‘traditional roast dinner veggies’ at this type of restaurant. Would suggest aubergine, courgettes and peppers etc.
Other than that what we had ordered was divine and every mouthful was enjoyed by both!

The food came out cold, and waiters were not attentive. Furthermore, hot water with lemon 4 cups they charged £9 when other restaurants offer it for free. Rip off. On top of this, they put a service charge on the bill and you have to get waiters to come and help you.

Had a wonderful meal, food was delicious and the service was amazing!

We sat outside which was lovely as the weather was great but halfway through the meal another couple was sat next to us who were having shisha which we found very off putting. Would have been nice to have been asked what our preference was as it spoiled our ambiance a little and retracted from what had been an incredible evening!

Thanks for what was truly a delicious dinner!

The ambience was lovely in the restaurant, it’s nicely done up. The service is also great, our waitress was very helpful. The hot mezze platter was delicious. The mixed grill however was a bit of a let down. Not a lot of food for the price you’re paying and our food was cold. We had to send it back to be reheated and the meat was also ovecooked and dry.

We booked for a specific menu 5 days in advance and ask if it’s the same menu as advertised online.

We got a call two days before asking us to submit a ore-order if possible. On the day we called 8 hours earlier to submit our pre-order and they said no we changed our menu for today and you have to pick again. We picked our new order called to submit the order 3 hours in advanced a rude man answered saying we won’t be taking your order. Order when you arrive.

On arrival the food was served cold and we had to sent it for reheating in addition they only brought out 3 mains and forgot about the other 4. When we asked for the mains they said no we already brought them out.

The service was very poor and waiter were very rude.

The venue itself is pretty and reminded me of mamma Mia. The food is usually a bit steep but, with the deal you can get on open table, you can have a really reasonable 3 course meal and glass of Prosecco.

We just had a bit of an issue with the server. They were very busy and seemed quite stressed and rude.

We went for the 3 course deal with a glass of Prosecco. The starters of falafel were excellent! However, the lamb sausages were an acquired taste, as they tasted more like lambs liver minced up.
I had the chicken for the main, which was very tasty. It came with flatbread and some salad finished with the baklava for dessert, which was amazing!
I would definitely go there again and recommend this eatery to my friends. The service was very good and the staff were attentive. This particular deal was good value for my money and the location was ideal.

There was an opportunity to make a reservation via open table with the specific offer of a dedicated fixed lunch menu. When I arrived and enquired about this menu, I was not offered it and instead was given the far more expensive general menu. I felt rather defrauded. I did enquire further and was informed that having booked this specific menu and having had it confirmed by email was not enough. Apparently I had to not just request the fixed lunch menu but to insist on it. This is rather underhand and poor professional practice.

The food was great, the restaurant is clean and modern, and the service was excellent.
The only downsides were that it was a little bit pricey, and they add a 15% service charge to your bill, but I guess that's par for the course in Central London. I did think the music inside was a bit loud, but we got used to it fairly quickly.
Highly recommended overall.
