We started at the bar for cocktails and they were pricey, but tasty. A round of 2 drinks and 2 beers for 4 people was $35. We chose to move to a bar table for dinner as we were really enjoying the piano player. We sat there for 10 minutes before a server came over to address us, instead 3 servers the hostess and the bartender sat around chit chatting while we waited. We ordered 4 tapas dishes to share. We were informed they were out of mussels and then they brought us chicken kabobs instead of pork kabobs b/c they were out of those too. Sure disappointing experience.
Everything we had was delicious! Food taste A+, Presentation A+, Service A+, Ambiance A+. Great menu options! Definitely recommend!
Everything we had had was superb. Artichoke appetizer was amazing. Lamb shank is delicious! I highly recommend!! The wine list is the best I’ve ever seen!
from the drinks at the bar and free cheese and fig jelly to the four unique tapas capped off by the main meal. What a great dining experience. Will be back
I was expecting so much more of this place. For Mother’s Day, it seems they were understaffed. The front desk wasn’t very welcoming. We had 2 kids in our party and they did no effort to bring paper, crayons, sippy cups, or bring their food faster than ours. food was good, but nothing out of the ordinary. Service was so subpar that this was a one and done.
Nice restaurant. Food was well prepared. Excellent taste. Server was very nice. Do not expect to get out of their cheap. A nice restaurant to be pampered and have good food.
First time diner. Seemed to be a bit of an issue getting seated even though we had a reservation. Then had to wait for menus. Then a bit of a delay getting drinks, but after that, the experience was good. Menu has a wide selection and has many clearly marked options for gluten free diners. Lamb shank Osso Buco was very good. Would eat there again.
Very nice place and service. Food prep and portion size very disappointing, especially for the cost. Lamb chops cooked to dust. Brussel sprouts seemed like they were cooked in a food dehydrator and a $30 fish dish was at best 5 healthy bites.
Food and service were excellent. Decor was high end. They recently remodeled the dining and bar area and it showed. Prices are a bit on high side but other then that it was a wonderful first visit.
Inconsistent service levels and food is a bit pricey.
Have been here a couple of times, first time sat ag the bar with friends and had some great drink and shared a few apps.
Went last night with the family for Mother’s Day dinner ~ the food and service was outstanding. Especially love the mini lamb chops and the braised lamb rigatoni as well as the Halibut special...everyone loved the food and will be going back often!
Delicious food and attentive staff. Would love to come back.
The food is excellent, lots of choices. Small plates are delicious, especially the artichokes. Great service, would definetely recommend.
Superb food and great service
Very good food and choices are great; loved the tapas. :-) We were able to sit outside and that was very nice. Wine selections were good also. Will definitely come back
Great selection of excellent entrees. Definitely will return.
The food was wonderful ! The staff was great. The transformation of the place is really beautiful. Once the summer patio opens it will be another great place to enjoy the delectable and innovative food. What a treat to find Tino (fantastic chef) at this suburban location.
This place is truly wonderful! A friend and I went to Meze for the first time yesterday and discovered their 3:55 to 6 pm Happy Hour... a unique time slot to match their unique vibe. This is modern elegance at it's best... a gorgeous wrap-around Bar, stunning Lighting, beautiful minimalist Decor... but with a comfortable 'SO happy you're here with us' attitude (Blue jeans AND Suits/Dresses). Our server, Jonathan, made us feel welcome right away. He was delightful and very knowledgeable about the menu. Speaking of which, we chose to order some menu items off the regular menu and others off the Happy Hour one, which was truly awe-inspiring in the selection and pricing. Lovely $5 House Wines and such beautiful and delicious food. We had the 'Baked Roman Artichoke De Jonghe', 'Patata Bravas', and 'Lamb Meatballs with salted yogurt' for $5 each... hearty portions, and visually well- presented (did I mention Delicious ;-0? ) This is hands down the most interesting Happy hour menu I've ever experienced. We also really enjoyed the Saganaki from the regular menu of Hot & Cold Tapas, Flatbreads, grills, and Bowls, we we very much look forward to exploring more next time! And I anticipate MANY more' next-times!
Great selection of various regions and flavors around the Mediterranean, great wine and cocktail selection
Great food and amazing service. Would definitely recommend.
Birthday dinner...the food was outstanding! The Chilean Sea Bass was phenomenal!
Best food ever!
Awesome service & ambiance more people need to know about this place!!!
Good food and service. I would go back.
Interesting menu with a lot of small plate choices. Food was great. Terrific wine list and VERY reasonably priced.
I never had grilled calamari steaks before and now that is the only way I want them. Tender and savory. The red snapper was very fresh and tasty with tomatoes and seasonings. Our server was a lot of fun and added to the meal. We will be back
Comfortable atmosphere, excellent food, friendly service
The remodeling from the days of Zeal is outstanding. Walls down creates a wonderful open look to the restaurant. Love it!
Our server was perfect and the food was remarkable. Loved every minute as did all in our party! Thanks.
We celebrated a friends birthday service and food excellent
Not bad, food was good not great! Also the restaurant doesn’t open until 3:30 pm but open table let’s you do reservation at 3 pm. So they took us in but half of the stuff that we wanted to order they didn’t have because it wasn’t ready. Also the server walked away without taking our drinks order.
A Gem in Schaumburg !
Food was delicious, service was a little slow in the beginning but picked up. The price for the food seemed a little much for the amount of food you receive.
Thoroughly enjoyed our evening out at Meze! We were greeted by the friendly hostesses and immediately shown to our awaiting table. The restaurant was busy, yet we experienced quick and outstanding service.
We highly recommend the Octopus appetizer as it is the best octopus we have ever eaten! The Salmon Mediterraneo is another one of our favorite entrees and was especially delicious this evening.
My party and I had the lamb shank. It was very tender, juicy and flavorful. We will definitely go back for it again. We had the flourless chocolate cake and it was very good. It wasn't too sweet.
Excellent experience. Grilled Octopus, bone in ribeye, Osso Buco, and Zuppa de Pesce we’re all outstanding! Service was great. Our waiter, Matt, was always there but never joined our party. Surprised it was not more busy. I think their proximity to Woodfield Mall may hurt them. This place may become our new “spot”. Give them a try for yourself.
Great place for a businees lunch. Great food and great service.
The food excellent. Good choices and portions. This is a fairly new restaurant, but will become very popular soon.
Absolutely loved the ambience and the Tapas. $5 drink specials until 6 were a great deal! I especially love the Meze Rose. I can’t wait to go back!
We really enjoyed our experience at Meze! The food was delicious and the service spectacular!
Nice restaurant. Great food. We had the Chilean sea bass and filet, both were excellent.
The restaurant is relatively new and on the evening we visited was experiencing long wait times due to reservations mix up.
Staff is friendly and absent the wait the service was good.
I would definitely recommend it. The food is great!
