We were the only ones there and the food was cold. Prices are high and quality and quantity were not worth it. Service was good. We will not be back.

Warm, inviting and food is delightful. Overall only downside would be how quickly they moved us through our dinner. In and out in an hour on our date night. Could have better paced the service and meal delivery especially given it was not a full night. BUT AMAZING food made our first visit a really great one.

This is our second time and I don't know how they maintain such a high level of quality so consistently. From the greeting, to the drinks, to the decor, server, bartender, and the food. We cannot say how much we like this place enough. Definitely will be returning.

Mezze is a lovely, welcoming experience that starts with the host and continues with the servers and the food and drink. The server was helpful without being overbearing, and had great suggestions. The food is superb. We had a lovely fennel and celery salad to start and a spectacular branzino entree and the pappardelle with ragu-- very elegant comfort food. They even had a lactose-friendly dessert. The setting is warm and refined. All in all, a terrific experience.

My husband and I went to dinner , we made reservations ahead of time online which made it really easy. Dinner was great, the starters were amazing and although we were stuffed after dinner we couldn’t pass up trying some dessert.. everything sounded so good. Can’t wait to go back again!!

Very good food well prepared. Several atypical ingredients nicely incorporated. Disappointed in lack of small salad option of some type. In an age when many high quality restaurants offer desserts that are easily shared, the dessert we ordered, delicious , was of small proportion.

We had a lovely meal and excellent service. I judge an interesting meal by whether the quality and preparation greatly exceeds what I can prepare at home....and this certainly did! I look forward to coming back when I'm in Williamstown again.

We went to Mezze with our two sons, ages 10 and 12, to celebrate my husband’s birthday. We have been many times - and knew we would feel well cared for and eat great food. There was something on the menu for everyone - all done exceptionally well. We have been to many of the nice Berkshire restaurants and feel the service at Mezze is far and away the best.

This was our second visit to Mezze. We were hoping for the same great service experience we received during our first visit in mid October. We were excited to share our Mezze experience with our good friends from Westchester who were visiting us to celebrate New Year's eve, an annual tradition for us. Our table which was located outside the main dining room/bar area and near the main entrance wouldn't have been our first choice. We sat for a long while for our drink/food order. The hostess quickly corrected the situation after we commented that people seated after us were already being served. She offered us a complimentary bottle of wine, which was appreciated. We hope to return with an expectation that service will be greatly improved.

Four of us (my wife and I, two adult daughters) had a very nice experience. The spiced popcorn appetizer was fun, and the small plate selection, though limited, was good. I had excellent potato and leek soup (the add-ins of creme fraiche and crunchy croutons and bacon made this special), and heritage pork meatballs (good, but no special attributes). Both my daughters had pasta 'cacio e pepe', which was also good though not quite like the Roman original (we were a bit baffled by the broth in the bottom of the bowl). One had a very fresh and tasty salad, the other enjoyed her single smash burger. My wife had very good salmon. Interesting and tasty food, good service, nice lively atmosphere - we'd go back and further explore this interesting menu.

Generally a 4 star place: The food is great here, well prepared and balanced in flavor and presentation. Also, generally, the best higher end food you'll find in these parts. Some small criticisms, because that's why we're here: I find the menu slightly brief and slightly limited. We tire of seeing so much pork on a menu and multiple chicken dishes. why not lamb? why not some other poultry? this is not to say what's here isn't strong, but this is a porky menu.

another small criticism: Unless the intent is to make it so that the diners literally share each other's conversations, the tables in the center of the room are too close to one another. I went here on a date with my wife, not on a double date with the table next to me. the party next to us was a couple who's conversation consisted mostly of the woman nagging the man. So it was a bit like eating a delicious meal in a room with a nag who you didn't invite to dinner.

The staff is uniformly strong, pleasant and warm. The Mezze team does staffing well, and you can tell. there are ample staff, they're clearly all on a team, and they all seem to be on the ball as it were. Our waiter was warm and friendly and knowledgeable, the back waiter was johnny on the spot with the food.

We really love the lighter fare menu. The Okie burger and fries were near perfect. That's a great burger. we had a dozen oysters as well (as a special at $1 each, you can't go wrong) which were also great, though the citrus accompaniment could use a refresher. We also enjoyed the Mushroom Ragout. Rarely is polenta so delicious, and the parsnip puree coupled with the mushrooms were delightful together.

Finally, dessert was also really strong, if imperfect. I had the chocolate pot du creme, which was overcooked but delicious anyhow. A pot du creme should be creamy, mine was more like clay in consistency. It was delicious however, with a very nice done combo of hot pepper and good chocolate.



Good: 90/100

We love Mezze and have been going there a couple of times a year for fifteen years. The drinks are well prepared and tasty. The food can be spectacular but also not very good. One takes one’s chances. I had a baked whole fish that was greasy, scorched and inedible a year or so ago. The roasted chicken last night was perfect. The pasta that is always on the menu is too large a portion and ranges from scrumptious to cold and bad. Mezze is uneven but is a sparkling place decor-wise and worth your time and money when you are in Williamstown.

We really enjoyed this place. It's setting was very nice and once we were seated we were very comfortable in one of their dining rooms. The food was delicious. For entrees we had the Garganelli and the market fish which was halibut and found them both well prepared and mouthwatering. We plan to return.
