Friends took me to Messa to celebrate my birthday, we were pleasantly surprised. Food, ambience & service were excellent. My friend mentioned that it is going to be a birthday celebration when she phoned in to make the reservation, they prepared a special dessert for the occasion.....that’s just good customer service.

Nice decoration, good food, good service. Upmarket, trendy non traditional and worths a visit if you consider yourself gourmet. Overall very pleasant experience completed by a visit to the bar. Restaurant and bar are the total contradiction from a decoration point of view. . .
