Oh what a disappointment... food was just ok. Overpriced. $14 for a Greek salad of a size of a side one. The server never showed up after serving the appetizers. After waiting 20 minutes to order a main course we gave up and asked for a check. Good tea and wine tho. The restaurant is just beautiful but has a great atmosphere but that’s pretty much it. Hopefully next time there will be more people to actually take care of the guests.

We had dinner outside on the patio this evening. There was live music with a very talented singer and guitar player... nice and entertaining, but we had met up with friends and just wanted to converse. Our dinners were all very good, except my meal was only warm, so sent back to reheat. Of course, everyone else was finished with their meal before I got mine back, sufficiently warmed. Nice place, server very attentive...we will try it again!

Our reservation was at 7 and we sat down right away. It took 15 minutes for someone to even bring us water and he said he would be right back with the drink menu, and that took another ten minutes for someone else to ask us for our drink order. We ordered appetizers with our drinks & after we finished those, we sat there waiting for someone to grab our dishes and take our dinner order. We watched and waited for 40 minutes as the waiter walked by our table multiple times. He never came by to see how we were doing or for the dirty plates or to take our order. We ended up going to the host and asking for our check. They didn’t even ask why were were up front asking for our check/if we had a good experience. I normally wouldn’t write a review but we were excited to try this place out because we had heard good things, but after the experience we had tonight, we will never go back.

Great food, a little slow on the service, but nice/friendly, signature drinks, good but prices for the amount, make them bigger, with more alcohol of course and the $12 is worth it, nice to make sure all the bulbs are working and lastly, Nick was awesome as usual!

I sat outside on the front patio for lunch and it was a great space. I could do without the loud, weird music. Maybe some Greek music. The ambiance is awesome inside as I looked around. I had the chicken pita and my friend has a flatbread. The fries were great and so was the ice tea. Manager was friendly. She mentioned they now have ionizers inside to help fight cover. I will be back.

Our food was great but our server disappeared with our leftovers towards the end of our meal. My husband went inside looking for him twice but we had a little guy with us and it was getting late, so we left cash on the table and walked away. I was sad to leave our food behind!

Always happy here! and if something is not to your liking-they will make it right.
The temps were a bit off on our food ie not as hot as it could be but that was remedied right away. Great selection on Greek influenced menu.
Hope locals will continue to support once the patio dining is no longer viable. we need restaurants like Meze to continue to prosper.

What a find !
My wife and I stumbled upon Meze a couple of weeks ago and have been back twice already.
2 fantastic outdoor areas, the larger of which offers 1 or 2 person live music.
The food is ridiculously good and the service is excellent.
Fantastic wine list as well

Enjoy !

The kabobs are very good as is the saganaki. We ate on the patio and they had the tables too close together, not 6 feet apart. The couple at the next table weren’t wearing masks at all, and I felt a little unsafe eating there. Also our waiter changed the propane tank in the heater (which took 20 minutes, no one else attended his tables during that time) and then served us food without washing his hands. Can someone else handle that task? There are better cheaper Greek restaurants around, we aren’t likely to return, mostly due to Covid safety concerns and service issues.

We just discovered this place, and it was quite a pleasant surprise. I had chicken kebabs and my husband had an unusual cod dish, almost like a stew with herbs and leeks. Both were delicious. We also shared the butter bean salad, which was excellent, too. Our waiter was efficient and knowledgeable about the menu. Next time, I would probably order several of the meze instead of a whole dinner. There are two patios for outside dining. Very nice!

Love the time and attention given to the space in and out.
It’s nice to see that people do care about that.

Wish you the best and hope you will see your way thru the Covid challenges! We will support of course.

We enjoyed the grilled octopus and bacon-wrapped dates for the appetizer course. We each had a different shrimp entree. Everything was delicious, and the service was great.

Had excellent service on the front outdoor patio. The front patio is a lovely, shady and quiet spot. The bacon wrapped dates were delicious. The chicken on the chicken kabob was very good. I wish the kabob came with vegetables instead of a pile of deep fried potato chunks.

Meze is a great place to dine inside or outside. The food is mouth watering as they have two of the best chefs in the area. The service is second to none as they make you feel like royalty. Also Meze management team go out of their way to make sure your dining experiance is Awesome. They have hands down the best wine selection rivaled only by a few Vegas restaurants ! The bar tenders have put together a Fantastic cocktail selection to choose from. They offer entertainment on certain days check with Management. If you haven't had the opportunity to dine here put it is a must !!!

The waitstaff is super nice and gave helpful recommendations. The outdoor seating was ample with two areas well spaced and indoor well spaced too. The food was outstanding from the cocktails, bread to the entrees and sides. The service was a bit slower than we expected which would be fine if we knew to expect that and if maybe it was a later reservation. We came very early for dinner. We will be back for sure!
