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.

Delicious food and lovely atmosphere. The service is good, however there was a rather long lag between courses and right after dessert the wait staff disappeared and it took a while to get our check. The restaurant was maybe 20% full at the time so I am not sure what happened. Regardless, we will back again!

Mezz remains my go-to restaurant in Williamstown. Pleasant and helpful servers, and on this occasion, a nice visit from the bartender during dinner. Probably the best in town. Park up behind the restaurant if you have trouble with walking up steep paths (from the lower lot).

We've been coming back every time we are in NW Massachusetts for several years. It is elegant yet relaxed. Impeccable service, though it can be busy when there are local events at the college or in North Adams. The food never fails to satisfy our extended foodie family. Make a reservation to be sure you can enjoy this gem when you visit the Berkshires.

Service very poor - slow and inattentive - asked us if we wanted more bread when they hadn’t delivered any in the first place. Then tried to deliver dessert when we hadn’t received any food! Food good but amateur service takes away from fine dining experience. Don’t know if we will be back.

The menu was a bit limited. The meal took way longer than felt comfortable- there was a lot of waiting around and not a big group or complicated order. We had 1 appetizer - a salad - (shared by 2/3 people). Waited uncomfortably long for our entrees to arrive. None of the servers seemed to notice. Food was quite good, but the long wait really put a damper on the experience. The room was also rather loud.

I have always enjoyed our visit to Mezze in the past, but the latest visit proved to be a big disappointment. Perhaps the chef has changed, but what used to be the most creative and beutiful presentation of the dishes were no longer, the grilled pork was barely tasty, the huge chunk of field lettuce served whole required my cutting with a knife in order to make it bite size, and the pasta was just ordinary. There was nothing appealing on the dessert menu so we opted to go elsewhere. How sad....

We had our best meal in the Berkshires at Mezze Bistro. The setting is lovely and the service excellent.
Our appetizers of tomatoes and burrata and roasted mushrooms were delicious and our main courses of salmon and pasta were well-done.

I have been to many restaurants where the chef’s ambition did not equal their skills.This was not such a place. Everything, from the cocktail, snacks, appetizers, entrées and desserts were right on point. My boyfriend and I were visiting Williamstown, and found this place by chance. The craft cocktails were refreshing and unique. Sriracha fried chick peas were a surprising mix of crispy flavor and heat. The heritage tomato and summer cucumber salads were a blissful celebration of these summer vegetables. Our entrées, the chicken confit and flank steak, with creative sides featuring excellent local ingredients, were marvelous, and more importantly, of a size that both left us satisfied, and with room for dessert. Neither of us was “sad-full.” This was fortunate, because we were able to enjoy the chess cake, and the Eaton Mess, a unique confection featuring fresh peaches and creamy dairy. They, and some fine Barrington coffee, wrapped up our meal. I wholeheartedly encourage you who might be in this neighborhood, to try this place.

There were six of us and a one year old,they supplied a nice hi-chair and we all fit well around the table we were given.The food was excellent we had four different dishes all were good. The service was great and prompt to keep the one year old with something to munch on.From cocktails,wine,dinner, desert and coffee everything was excellent. The menu being of one page was perfect so as the chef could perfect all the dishes offered.
