Nice neighborhood eating establishment

This is a very nice neighborhood restaurant in Oakland. Many regulars come here as well. After a cocktail (manhattan), I had the absolute best free-range roasted chicken that I have ever had in this Oakland restaurant. The skin was crispy, was nicely seasoned, the meat was very moist, and the... read more

Mezze serves tasty Mediterranean food, and can be a reasonable night out if you use their periodic Groupon offers (e.g., $30 for $15). A recent dinner for two, comprised of 2 salads, 2 mains, and 2 cocktails, was $86, including tax, but excluding tip. The salads and mains are good--often with a reduced pomegranate sauce or other flavors that add... More

Five os us, including two little children, enjoyed our meal last night. Excellent menu, excellent service. I enjoyed my Greek Pizza. My wife said her Spaghetti Squash was also excellent.

I hadn't been here in a while and was ready for a refresher. We were on the early side and service was prompt. We all enjoyed our meals; 2 of us had the chicken kabob (it was very good; I tried some) and 1 had the duck . I wanted the chicken kabob, too, but didn't like the idea of... More

Certainly fulfills the category of a First Class neighborhood gem! Offers understated elegant ambience, friendly service, and food more flavorful than expected. The Scallop dish was so yummy until I wished I could have been served a bit more of it on my plate....

Close to Lake Merritt, there aren't too many restaurants better than Mezze! The atmosphere is great and the service is consistent. One thing that always surprises people I go here with is how good the Caesar salad is! Isn't a Caesar salad just a salad? Yes, but theirs is one of the best I've ever had. Always ask for the...

You can't go wrong selecting Mezze for those special occasion dinners. The menu encompasses a wide variety of dishes, including pizze, Moroccan lamb tagine, housemade gnocchi with pulled duck confit, coriander-crusted ahi tuna, gourmet hamburgers, wood-oven roasted chicken, Catalan Suquet (seafood stew) and “spaghetti squash pasta” among many other choices. I have tried them all and they are all good.... More

There are usually specials and three course meal options. Very lovely service and it is a great all around neighborhood restaurant. I haven't had a bad dish here.

Mezze is one of our local favorites. We can walk from our home. The pizza and appetizers are excellent and wonderful with a drink. For a full dinner try the FABULOUS Chicken. I think it's the best in Oakland. Maurice is the perfect host and always makes your feel welcome whether we've been in recently or time has elapsed. This... More
