Outstanding dinner in all respects, including food quality, menu options, service, ambience, view, wine and beer options, noise level, etc. I would rate it moderately expensive. My wife and I each had a first course (parsnip soup and raw asparagus salad) and entrees (confit of duck with minted peas and potato mash, and sole with grapefruit hollandaise and lentils), and a glass of wine each, for $93 before the tip. We will definitely come back the next time we venture to the North Adams / Williamstown area.

Was in town for a short getaway. Mezze was recommended through a friend, when we arrived we were greeted warmly and seated quickly. Food was great, Mike our server was welcoming and attentive along with support staff. Would recommend.

Restaurant is lovely. A few rooms, nicely decorated. Menu for main dishes was a bit limiting but we were able to enjoy our food. Was hoping for more chicken selections. Didn’t have dessert as we were stuffed.
The service was fantastic. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable .
Would def return on our next trip up .

Easter dinner with my wife, 14 year old, and 16 year old. We are from Southern Berkshires but were taking my son back to school. The food was excellent, especial the Brussels sprouts--so good we ordered another for the table. Everyone enjoyed their meals--kids had carrot tacos.

Even though the restaurant was forewarned that one person in our party had an onion/allium allergy, they seemed completely unprepared. The first entree was brought out with chives garnishing the dish - allergy! No sauces or sides (other than plain, roasted potatoes) were offered. This was a special birthday dinner and it was such a let down.

The space is nicely decorated, cozy but clean and modern. The staff was attentive without being overbearing. The food and drink choices were very well executed. We are "foodies" and were very happy with our meals! Portions are on the small size but that is not necessarily a bad thing. Best food we have had in the Williamstown area!

The Mezze Bistro + Bar tactile experience — food, ambience, elegantly casual service, understated decor, lively and beautiful crowd — is of those rare earthly occasions of perfection. Management has a gift for attracting staff passionate about the business, front and back of house. The menu is a thrill to read and imagine and somehow narrow down one’s choices. The gracious small touches — taking our coats without fuss, gratis sweets delivered with the check, an impression of all being glad to welcome us — add up to Materpiece.

New Year's Eve dinner was fabulous. Started with Pemaquid oysters which were succulent. My husband ordered
duck and thought it was some of of the best ever. Sticky toffee pudding for dessert. Fabulous food, great ambience. Why this is one of our favorite dining spots

Terrific food, lovely atmosphere, but abysmal service. Plates and silverware were removed and never replaced. The main entree for our son arrived 30 minutes after the rest of our food without any explanation. The waitress ditched us mid-way through our meal (again no explanation) and we were served by other staff members for the rest of our meal. We would have felt fine with this treatment in a pizza joint, but it detracted from the rest of the experience so much that I'm not sure we'll ever return.

I love Mezze normally, and their kale caesar salad was as excellent as ever this time. The salmon crudo appetizer was a disappointment-- very acid flavors that drowned out the salmon and other ingredients. I also found the main menu for entrees ranged from uninspiring (variations on plain roast meat with veggies that could easily be cooked at home) to downright repellent (beef heart with tallow crumbs sounds like something people might have been forced to resort to during WWII). I wound up ordering the cavatelli from the staff menu which was fine, but not quite the gourmet luxury experience I was hoping for. Overall, more good food than not at our table but not up to its usual standard.

Came to Mezze for my mother's 66th birthday. Price was well worth the quality of food and service. Due to a last minute issue, I also brought my 2 yr old daughter with us. I would not recommend Mezze as a place to bring children, but if you must an earlier reservation and a well behaved child - they were very sweet to her. Bringing her crayons and being patient with her one or two animal noises. Food was amazing, price was doable, and staff was top notch!

My husand and I enjoyed our dinner at Mezza. Although the menu is limited, the food was innovative with good size portions. At the waiters suggestion, we had the Georgia Candy Roaster which was a remarkably delicious appetizer. Look forward to our next visit.

Extremely disappointed given other reviews. Food at best was mediocre. Pumpkin arrancini were bland. One of the three arrancini tasted gamey. Perhaps the cheese inside was a bit off. Crispy octopus was full of sand and not cooked enough at the larger end of the leg making it unmalleable. Garganelli had the strangest spice blend. Not a good night overall.

Occasionally you encounter a wait staff person who really adds to the experience. Alexandra is that person - knows food and wine, is upbeat and enthusiastic about her work and the restaurant, and is beyond thoughtful and helpful. The menu descriptions can be a tad opaque and you'll benefit from knowledgable explanations. We have eaten here several times, and this was the best. We recommend the restaurant highly.

Food: Delicious, as always. Wine list is quite respectable. Highly recommend the kohlrabi salad, pate, and any fish on the menu. Ambiance: Comfortable, softly lit. A very large group was seated next to us and though they were a bit loud at times, it was well absorbed in the space. Service: Very attentive but the check was brought before we’d asked for it and while we were still enjoying dessert and coffee. Overall: highly recommend, food will not disappoint. Our favorite go-to when visiting Williamstown
