The salads and dressings were delicious. Food was very fresh and served beautifully. Lighting and music were well chosen. Service was excellent. Spacing during COVID was ample. A wonderful dining experience.

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

Mezze provides a great dining experience in the rustic Berkshire hills. The chef creates tempting appetizers, such as beet & grapefruit salad, and delicious entrees, such as hangar steak with chicory salad and pistachios. Service is excellent.

Enjoyed a healthy and tasty prix fixee dinner out on the patio. Warmed by outdoor heaters, surrounded by arborvitae, we felt a world apart from the mild street noise.
The generous portion of a unique carrot soup tasted like autumn. Similar entrees and desserts followed. Lovely atmosphere, great waitstaff, excellent food - what more could you ask for?

Mezze was the perfect place for our family of 3 adults to celebrate a birthday! The meals were all beautifully delicious and the service was just right. I appreciated that it was not overly crowded as we don’t typically eat indoors (due to COVID). It felt safe, comfortable, and totally enjoyable.

My wife's chicken dish was cooked superbly and my boulogne was excellent but I could have had a spec more. Salad was nice and fresh. Desserts of apples and peaches a-la-mode did the trick. Very nice...

Our food was outstanding. Choices were creative, presentation ideal, everything tasted incredible and was served at the proper temperatures. The Chef and his/her staff should be commended.

Cocktail choices were interesting but seemed somewhat unreasonably priced.
Beer choices were very limited with local options that lacked the good flavor of more popular national or regional competitors. The wine list was overly creative and all beer and wine choices seemed overpriced!

When choosing a restaurant for a fine dining experience to celebrate my wife’s birthday, I did not expect to find a large politically oriented sign near the front door much less the excessively large companion sign just to the right of the bar directly in my line of sight during dinner.

The signs referred to a hate based destructive and anti-American national activist group and it was sad to see them in this environment. (Actually it’s sad to see them in Detroit, Baltimore, Minneapolis or the South side of Chicago but at Mezze it was incredulous)

Overall pleasant dining experience. Beautiful location. Spacious dining rooms. Efficient and attentive staff. Food was overall good but desserts were underwhelming. Also a bit too pricey for what you get.
