This is the place where we go to celebrate a special occasion. Yes, not every dish is perfect and causes my taste buds to sparkle on every bite, but there is a nice selection to choose from (though it would be nice if the menu changed and rotated meals as well), the food is tasty, and the service is usually...

Truly imaginative and wonderfully tasty take on Middle Eastern/Israeli food. A special occasion place: a little pricy, fancy (for Tel Aviv) but worth every shekel. A great deal of thought is evident in everything they prepare. I wish we had it in Los Angeles! For the (slightly) adventurous food lover.

We had a late night dinner at the bar. Food was flawless....the salads were simple, clean in taste and layered in taste. The menu is quite small and eclectic-local with some of your traditional Israeli staples. We opted for an Israeli Sauvignon blanc that was light, and clean in taste which went well with the flavor in Israeli cooking. The... More

Had heard so much about this place and it all was true except the food part. The general vibe was of a greek orgy but with worse music. And the patrons seemed to care mostly about being seen spending money. That all could have been overlooked if the food was decent, or free. It wasn't either. Was very average and... More

La Messa is one of the bests restaurants in Tel Aviv. Great food and luxury. Good service. A couple shares a big table in the middle of the restaurant, it is original and fun.

Loved that the restaurant is all white and the bar is all black. Fusion Cuisine but every plate was perfectly decorated and delicious. One of the best places I've eaten I would definitely go back without a doubt.

I travel a lot to different countries. I was in all the best restaurants in Europe and America. And I responsibly declare - this is the best restaurant of all that I have ever visited. Chef - a genius. I hate chocolate, but his foie gras in chocolate I dream at night. For one only carpaccio of foie gras I... More

The food was excellent - it's an incredible place. I would certainly go back to this place. I loved this place - it was fantastic. The first time I've actually enjoyed grappa as well!
