Food was fabulous. We both had the octopus, in a spicy tomato sauce with chickpeas. My husband had the steak mole poblano, while I had the fish. Both excellent. For dessert, the panna cotta was light and refreshing. Tables were nicely spaced out, and the drink specials were also delicious. They got us through the whole 3 course pris fixe in an hour and 15 minutes, almost an hour early for our show, with no rush. Great experience!

We had a delicious dinner at Mezze. I loved my kale salad (the others enjoyed their simple salad and gazpacho) and our main courses were delicious - steak, chicken confit and char. Definitely look forward to returning some time soon!

Wonderful fresh salad, super tasty. Simple 3 course menu so food gets served quickly, almost too quickly. Felt a bit rushed
Nice setting, lovely garden.
Really good service, nice folks working there.

Prix fixe meal was perfect. Octopus was almost perfect (would have liked it a bit more charred, Baja Med style), kale salad nicely massaged, and steelhead trout with balanced heat and yogurt sauces perfect. Pear sorbet and especially the panna cotta were the perfect endings. Attentive, but not intrusive service, and our server was very well trained (a rarity these days!). Highly recommended - book well ahead.

I love chicken but it is so often badly prepared
I’ve only had one other perfectly cooked as I enjoyed this evening ( at Bouchon)
The octopus starter was a unique and delicious as well
We’ll be back

We had eaten there before, remembered how good it was, and decided to go back. It exceeded our expectations! The prix fixe menu was fabulous! When one of us didn't like the glass of wine we ordered, the waiter opened another bottle to taste, and then without any hesitation, allowed us to order a different wine. Excellent service, delicious food, great atmosphere. The best we've had in Williamstown!

Mezze is a mainstay for us on our Williamstown visits. The atmosphere is relaxed, comfortable, near nature, while the staff is extremely attentive, and respectful. The food is so fresh - last night we remarked that ‘it felt like we had eaten in and from the garden’. We hope many others enjoy !

Mezze always has delicious food. It is still difficult for restaurants to create a lively, fun, atmosphere. Tables must be kept apart, at a distance. The staff at Mezze are all helpful and friendly.

Our server was amazing and the food was outstanding. We were celebrating our anniversary & we did get 2 glasses of sparkling wine on the house ( very nice touch). My own negative feedback is we waited a long time to be seated (even with a reservation). When we were seated we were seated in a back room next to the servers station.

Unknown before I arrived was that it would be a Fix price menu. The choices were not particularly good and the chicken confit was just OK. Salad and desert were good and the wine was quite good as recommended by our server. Every year for the last 5 years we have eaten here except during Covid 19 but this may have been the last time.

Mezze is one of the best restaurants anywhere. We enjoyed an amazing dinner there in June and returned for another outstanding dining experience this past weekend. The restaurant is beautiful, the service is friendly and knowledgeable, and each dish is thoughtfully prepared and presented.

The service at Mezze was excellent! We were the last reservation and last ones out. We did not feel rushed at all. The Caesar salad with anchovy dressing could have been the whole meal it was so delicious. The risotto was just right with grilled shrimp and minced snap peas. The pork bolognese was totally devoured. Wine and IPA suggestions went well with dinner. Dinner at Mezze was a welcome break during a rainy midweek getaway. Looking forward to dining there again.

Twenty twenty-one is only half over but I’m certain this will be the one meal we’ll remember fondly on New Year’s Eve. By any standard it was a stand-out. The food was delicious; the presentation, excellent; the service, first-class. If only we found ourselves ‘in the neighborhood’ more often. We’ll certainly be back!

This was our first indoor dining experience since the pandemic. Mezze is doing a great job of spacing tables, requiring masks, and doing pricing fixe meals - we felt quite safe. The food was wonderful, as usual.

It was our first time at Mezze. We based our choice on the many good reviews. The pea salad was good and imaginative, but it was downhill from there. The kale and fennel caesar salad was over salted. My chicken "confit" was basically chicken cacciatore in a light tomato broth over greens, again very over salted to the point that I couldn't eat the greens or finish the dish. My husband's heritage pork and beef bolognese was, you guessed it, also over salted, and it was nothing like the hours-long, multistep bolognese he expected. Even the olive oil for bread dipping had salt in it. The strawberry crisp was good, but pretty ordinary. Very expensive for over salted, unimaginative food.

We have loved Mezze for years, but the food last night was decidedly ordinary. After great appetizers with local vegetables, we had a mediocre pasta (too much oily sauce and tasteless meat) and a disappointing chicken. We hope this was just an off-night.

We love the pre fixe menu style. We started with the octopus for the table in addition to our regular orders and it was excellent. We had cocktails with our starters and then moved to wine with our meal. The service was very good. We had a new server but she did a good job. Overall we were happy. Our only complaint is not having espresso and only the French pressed coffee but it was good coffee.

Went for prix fixe Sunday evening dinner for Father’s Day. Our first visit. We were both very impressed with the food, the service, the attention to detail. Loved the Lavender 75 cocktail, very beautiful and tasty. We’ll definitely visit again.

Great service, gracious about our late arrival. Enjoyed ambiance (except plastic tablecloths outdoors?). Food very tasty and well presented, but wondered if we were served salmon instead of trout. Also Panna Cotta was delicious (not overly sweet) but consistency more like high quality yogurt.
