Excellent food and attentive service every time.
Beet salad with chicken kabob is a favorite.
Good wine list with a wonderful Sauvignon Blanc.
Air system cleans the air so masks, while required by mandate upon entry, can be removed—felt safe.

I ate at this site dozens of times when it was Zeals. I like the look better and after just one meal I will be back to explore more items on the menu.

We enjoyed our dinner. We noticed that the staff did not wear masks. We thought that in Illinois it was mandatory for restaurant staff to wear masks. We were told by Meze that it was only recommended by the Illinois governor. This is not our understanding.

The food was good, but there was only two waiters for the whole dining room area, so we didn’t get that good of a service. We mentioned it was our anniversary and they didn’t even acknowledge that.. we won’t be going back..

Took friends out to dinner for their wedding anniversary. The food, wine and service were good. Everyone enjoyed their appetizers, salads (small was big enough to share), entree's and desserts. The lamb chops and halibut special was excellent. So why didn't I give a higher rating...at this quality of food and expense one would anticipate table clothes and clothe napkins. That's my only complaint.

My husband had bugs in his whiskey. It happens but they could have compensated us better. They only gave us a free dessert which I did not feel was acceptable. Otherwise food was good and atmosphere was nice

MEZE is an outstanding restaurant with a fantastic lounge area. The food is exceptional and fresh. The staff makes you feel like family and are experts.
They offer a Wine list that rivals any Restaurant in Vegas but the pricing is exceptionally fair. You must check out the live entertainment some of the best around.

This is the first time I’ve been to this restaurant, I love Mediterranean food and this restaurant did not disappoint! Great service, great location and management really seems to care about providing a wonderful dining experience. If I harbor any concerns at all it would be due to the lighting being a little high. Overall it was a great dining experience that I would recommend it highly

It was a very nice restaurant. We went at lunch time and there wasn’t anyone else there at the time. Great wine selections and good food. We did come away feeling like we ate a lot of garlic though. Overall, it was a wonderful lunch and we would go back for sure.

This was our first visit. I had fungi flat bread( pizza) and my husband had Mediterranean pasta. My flare bread was good and my husband enjoyed his pasta. My only complaint would be, we ordered baklava and was looking forward to having it. Sooooo disappointing. They don’t make it the right way. We had two little honey and nuts wrapped in tiny dough. Really, if your going to offer baklava, make it the right way!!!

Really excellent food! Covid distancing with seating. I would go back. The only thing that was disappointing was I put that it was my partner’s bday on the reservation and I thought it would be acknowledged in some way. I don’t know why they take that information if it’s pointless. If I would have known, I would have excused myself to the bathroom to order us a dessert.

A quiet place to meet with friends on a Sunday mid-afternoon. Food was good; enjoyed the trio of dips with pita and the beet salad. My friends had the customizable bowls and both enjoyed them. I would definitely go back.

Food was excellent however it took over an hour to get the food, we were barely checked on. There was about 3-4 other tables and by the time we got our food maybe one other table so it wasn't like it was busy. Mistake on the bill and after I told them, they came back with the same mistake and I was already charged. Waited another 10 mins for someone to come so I could make the change, but no one came....so we left
Maybe it was a bad day, but unfortunately wouldnt go back although the food was good.
