    Mezza is a great restaurant serving fine Mediterranean cuisine. While the special lobster risotto was really tempting (their specials are great) we wanted a tapas-style dinner this evening. Tapas? Yes – Mezza has a large selection to choose from! We had a salad, three Mezzas (spreads) with their excellent pita bread, and the halloumi cigars, with baklava for dessert. Fabulous! Service is excellent. Knowledgeable, friendly, attentive. BYOB, and there is a good wine/beer shop a two-minute walk away in the same shopping center. PLENTY of free parking. Make a reservation – they get busy both indoors and outdoors especially on weekends. Very highly recommended.

    Mezza Livingston is a poor excuse for a restaurant. Poor service. Inattentive waiters took the order totally wrong. Food was just so-so. Find a better place to spend your hard earned money.

    Mezza LivingstonResponded today

    Good evening Bob and we sincerely apologize but that doesn't sound like a typical visit to our restaurant. If you can please call 973-992-9300 and ask for the owner Vincent we would like to know what occurred and what date you dined. We always strongly encourage any diner with an issue to ask for a manager/owner so that we can correct the situation. Reviews only hurt our business that we work 24/7 on to make customers happy.

    Wonderful from start to finish. Food is consistently delish. Had 3 Mezza’s to start & pita bread is always fantastic. Duck breast with slice peaches & kale salad. Nice balance of sweet v savory. Stripe Bass in Moroccan terrine was with couscous & chopped veggies.

    To celebrate a family event we went out (4 people 2 kids 2 adults). We were greeted at the front entrance inside the restaurant by the staff who is seating people for dinner. He proceeded to tell us we had no reservation under their records. I showed him an email and the app from OpenTable. He proceeded to check again and even had his manager check again and there was no reservation there. This was very disappointing. This was the only time I’ve ever used OpenTable with a restaurant claim to never have the reservation. Thankfully they seated us right away at the first open table. Aside from this minor setback the food the service and the atmosphere were all excellent. We have eaten there before and have been very satisfied. We had a combination of salads and appetizers that were delicious. The hummus was very smooth and tasty. The main meals were excellent we all shared with each other different types of dishes from salmon to halibut to eggplant and short ribs. Next time we will leave enough room for dessert. I would give them five out of five stars for the whole evening however the lack of reservation when we first walked in was a little disappointing and unnerving. They did accommodate us right away and sit us at the nearest first table. Will go again. But will call directly for reservations. A little nervous for future reservations through open table now . Will hope for the best !

    Mezza has been one of my favorites for a while but I was really disappointed this time. We were seated near a family with a screaming child, (not infant) and neither the family nor the staff did anything to intervene. Our appetizers were very good. The cauliflower and Turkish ezme are delicious. However, both our chicken entrees (tagine and kofke) were overcooked and dry. I likely won't be back soon.

    Mezza is a great choice for a quiet lunch, with friends or business colleagues. It's easy to share a selection of appetizers (e.g. the halloumi cigars and the crispy cauliflower!) and Mediterranean spreads (e.g. the hummus and the Turkish Ezme!), and then go on to entrees. The decor is really well done, service is very good, and tables are well spaced. They also have enhanced filters in the HVAC system.

    Food is good...ambience and service are fair to poor. No one comes by to ask if you need anything else, refill water glasses, etc. I ordered tea 3 times over 30-45 minutes and finally got someone to bring it on the 3rd try by asking the manager.

    Average experience. Service is ok. I think they were short staffed and were busy. Food was average. We had the smoked eggplant for starters which was good. Wife had the braised short rib which was good. I had the steak kebabs which came with salad and couscous. The kebabs were good but the couscous was disappointing. For desert we had the pistachio baklava with pistachio ice cream which was really good. Overall the experience was ok, definitely would not recommend for a special occasion. Good for everyday dining.
