We had a delicious dinner at Mezze on a chilly March night. The tables were busy, and for very good reason. We had the tagliatelle as well as the chicken. They were absolutlely delicious! I don't think I have had such a good dinner in quite a while. The broccoli Ceasar salad was unusual and not bad, but I wouldn't have it again. It was a lot of broccoli (replacing the traditional romaine) but not completely sucessful. Dessert was good but messy looking (the spice cake with pears) and not quite right. Needed ice cream? or something, but man, those main courses were close to ' died and gone to heaven' scale. Go and enjoy! It also wasn't as expensive as the 4 forks would indicate, although those might be March prices?

I brought my fiancé, who has a slew of major allergies(corn, soy, gluten, and mushrooms) and the chef was very accommodating. Dorothy, our waitress, took good care of us. We started with delicious cocktails that were interesting twists on old favorites. There were only a few people in the restaurant when we began our meal and when we left it was full, but the sound level stayed relatively the same. It made for a lovely evening to treat ourselves. We rarely get to dine out due to her allergies and this was everything we could have wanted and more. Thank you Nick!

Incredible meal! The service was great. Food was delicious and pricing was beyond reasonable. The wine list had amazing selections and we could not have had a better time. Nice quiet atmosphere, perfect for more sophisticated night out without a huge price tag.

We had a really lovely evening at Mezze Bistro + Bar. The fire was going and the noise level was exceptionally low because each of the dining areas is small and intimate. The service was outstanding! Save room for desserts and a French press coffee. Thank you.

The ambience is amazing. The food is delicious. But the service is disappointing. We had to find or wave over our server for almost every single interaction with her. It was quite frustrating.

Lovely setting in a former house, high on a hill with copious windows. Moderate sized menu of carefully crafted dishes. Excellent flavors. Mediocre service with team wait staff that had to be reminded to bring same request (more bread, fresh ground pepper) and just seem to be defensive about the food instead of interested in discussing where food came from (was bread home made or locally sourced). Odd service for what was otherwise a gem of a restaurant.

This menu is very meat-heavy. I ordered the one fish entree and it had ham or sausage pieces in the broth! More vegetarian options, please!! There is also no gluten-free bread available, even though other less fancy restaurants in Williamstown offer this option. I wish there were more moderately priced entree choices. This is the best restaurant in town but the dining choices in the area are extremely limited.

I’ve been eating here for as long as it’s been at this location and this is the first time I’ve had the feeling like no one is in charge. The menu seems out of date, food presentation is kind of heavy, saucy. Chairs are stained. Bathroom needs some renovation. Food is ok but prices are too high for something so ordinary.

The staff were attentive and very kind. The ambience is lovely. Some of the food may be a titch overpriced , but it's very good and clearly made with quality ingredients. Although everything was fresh, the Bolognese sauce was somewhat thin and lacked a bit of flavor. The Pasta was clearly good quality if not made in house, but lacked a bit of chew and moisture. Overall, a very decent meal and nice place to spend an evening.

This restaurant didn't really hit the mark for us on any level. Food was just okay...overpriced and underwhelming. Think the menu items had potential just not properly executed. We had high hopes based on ratings but disappointed all around.

Why We Returned to Mezze After A Long Absence

We hadn’t eaten at Mezze in years because the menu had emphasized pork dishes. A visitor wanted to take us out recently, however, and when I checked the menu, there were still more pork dishes than I might have liked to see but also a number of vegetarian options plus one steak, one fish, and one poultry. We shared the delicious beet salad and a tasty mushroom dish three ways, and two members of the party enjoyed their beef, while the third found the salmon satisfying, if not outstanding. There is no whole grain bread, but otherwise we have no complaints and will certainly go there again.
