    Given the kitchen area closes at a certain time, the wait staff needs to let the diners know in advance if they want anything else. Very disappointing 😞

    It was overpriced. We started with Moroccan cigars. even though they we good, $16 for 3 pieces cut in half was pretty sad. Had the skirt steak and Branzino for entrees. They were really good but not worth the $40 price tag. Service was slow. Will not be going back. There are better restaurants in the area with a better value.

    Dips were very good. Server could have cared less if we were pleased or not. Service was very slow! At the end of the meal we specifically told our server that three of the four dishes were to be wrapped up to go. We said it a couple of times. He returned with two of the dishes and without the seafood couscous, which was still an ample portion. When we asked where it was he said, “I tossed it.” A perfectly good meal thrown in the garbage! The waste of the food especially when we told him more than once to wrap it up is such a waste. We were offered a dessert but had no interest in it. Honestly probably won’t go back. The best of the dishes was the seafood couscous. Our chicken kebabs were on the dry side. Many other places In the area where we can get similar food with a better attitude.

    Mezza is one of our favorite restaurants in the whole area. Excellent, innovative cuisine. Very good service. Great decor and ambience. Good seating, indoor and outdoor. BYOB, and there is a wine/beer/liquor store a two-minute walk away across the parking lot. Lots of free parking. We shared the strawberry mango salad, a favorite. We had the whole grilled branzino (best preparation in the area) and the shrimp orzo. Finished with the traditional baklava. All delicious. The mezzas (spreads) are also great options. It is easy to do a tapas-style dinner with a selection of the appetizers and spreads. Worth the drive!

    Food was excellent and well prepared. Service was very good as well. My only complaint is the cost of the entrees and appetizers. The per person charges now generally exceed $60 without alcohol which is at the upper end for the area. This will limit our dining with you.

    Mezza LivingstonResponded on October 7, 2022Happy you enjoyed your experience. Our typical avg/person used to be $48 in 2020/2021, it now runs closer to $55 without tax or gratuity due to increase in costs of running a restaurant. Unfortunately BYOB businesses cannot profit on any type of liquor, therefore we need to keep a consistent profit margin to keep our employees and business. Our general cots are up somewhere between 25-30% due to the inflation in our economy. If we could lower our prices back we would.

    First time - having hummus. I had the bowl with chicken - it was excellent! The chicken was tender and well seasoned. The hummus was rich and smooth. I can’t wait to go back and try something else. My friend ordered the salmon burger. She said it was delicious and mostly salmon and no filler. It was so big she took half home. We will be back!

    service was noticeably a lot better from previous visits. food was great as always, but as always…prices dont match value…the flavors are great but portions small and not offering expensive ingredients or local proveyor to justify the inflated costs. coffee was good but the second cup was on the cold side of lukewarm. service was a much needed improvement, which made the $75 for 4 appetizers bill not seem as outrageous. will definitely be back.

    Super over priced for this quantity and more so quality of food !! My gosh has no one ever had good Mediterranean food ? This place tastes like the Applebees of Mediterranean and priced like it’s an upscale restaurant in the city. Total Insanity. $40 for one stick of chicken shish Kebab??? No idea how it has so many positive reviews. Maybe Livingston just has zero dining decent options ? Not sure as it’s not my hometown. Also not to be mean but everyone there was also 80+ yrs old, which isn’t the greatest vibes.

    This is probably the best restaurant in town, with Middle Eastern food ranging from the authentic to the creative. I recommend the the Halloumi cigars, the tabbouleh, the baba ganoush, and the lamb shank. Reservations are highly recommended. Like many restaurants in NJ, it's BYOB. The wine store just a few doors down is overpriced, but there's a Bottle King about 1/2 mile away with great prices (and a wider selection of wines).

    Another great meal. Not the first and not the last time visiting mezza. We shared strawberry salad and hummus for 2 people. Pita bread hot fresh and great. Service staff pleasant and helpful. Then had chicken tagine which was flavorful and delicious. Skirt steak also for the other person in the party was great. No room for dessert this time but all the choices look great. Potato cake was great with the steak. Will be back . Not busy on a very hot day in July at 530

    Both orders were very dry. The coucous was loaded with potatoes less with seafood. At $38.00 I expected better. I have been a customer since you opened, I don’t expect that I will return. No attempt to refill water glasses.
