The winter menu. Warm hen of the woods mushrooms were delicious as was the cassoulet. Try the lemon cream for dessert.

Great ambiance but the $55 chef menu is overpriced and the all very young wine list is a let down.

The first time we dined here in May, everything was 5-star and we were thrilled. This time we thought the food was ok but not great and the service was sub par. Not worth the price this time time around

Overall Mezze was a good experience but unfortunately the entrees were the weakest part of the meal. My duck breast had the skin way oversalted and slightly gamy. The brussel sprout salad was phenomenal as well as the panna cotta. I could not read the beverage list which had me order a NA beer which was actually good. Missed the mark but would go back…

We have dined st Mezze before and always save it as the special dinner when we come to the area to visit the Clark and MassMOCA.
The food was superb and we like prix fix.

Amanda is genuine and her timing is impeccable. Many thanks!

One of the best restaurants in the Berkshires--maybe THE best. Prix fixe menu of $54 for 3 courses makes things simple and is very reasonable given the quality of the food, the uniqueness the setting--a home-like building uphill from the road and nestled against the woods, is a perfect cross between 'special occasion elegance' and 'comfortably homey.' Vegetables are especially interestingly conceived of and well prepared, and they always have a vegetarian/vegan entree option. I'm not a drinker so my husband appreciates the reasonably priced options for wines by the glass . We've been here a number of times in the past several years--we try to get a reservation every time we're in or near Williamstown-- and have never had a disappointing dish or meal.

We had a lovely time at Mezzo. The restaurant only offers a small, prix fixe menu but each dish was of high quality. The wait staff were friendly and professional. The tables were well spaced and the room was relatively quiet - it was easy to hold a conversation even when nearby tables were occupied.

While the food and drink were great, the service and ambience frankly couldn't have been much worse. They took us to a half-empty room in the middle of the restaurant with blank white walls, and seated us at the most isolated table with the worst lighting. We sat for at least ten minutes before our server came to our table, and it was another five before he took our drink order. All evening, he served another table who arrived after us before he came to our table. Pretty disappointing since the meal was in celebration of my birthday (which I indicated when I made the reservation via OpenTable). Not sure if we'll go back.

I think when you are spending $80-100/ person for a meal and a drink you should not have to remind your server about simple requests, multiple times, in my opinion a servers job is 99% remembering what you want and getting it promptly. Period.

Dined outdoors for the first time at Mezze - great setting. They are now just serving a prix fixe menu at least on Saturday night. The food was excellent - very inventive. The staff as usual was wonderful. They out shine many very fine restaurants in Boston and New York City. It is always our go to restaurant when we are in the Berkshires.

Prix fixe menu but nice variety of options. We ate all vegetarian and everything was delicious. Lovely outdoor patio with umbrellas and heaters. Turns out we needed both -- first it was slightly chilly and then it started to rain. Waitstaff did fantastic work shuffling the equipment around to accomodate the changing conditions. Service very good all around. Best food in the area by a long shot.

Chef mixes unusual combinations that work great together. The fish sauce changed the taste of the mint leaves in the cauliflower/Brussel sprouts so even though there was a lot of chopped mint, only a slight “mintiness” came through. Very surprising.

The chicken with hazelnut and pomegranate was delicious.

Food only exceeded by the service! This place is always booked but the front of house made an effort to get us in a bit early. Bologna’s probably the best I ever had. Panna cotta a dream. Not many places like this in the area! Great for special occasion
