I gave Mezze a rave in September 2011, and have dined there several times a year since then. It's been through some major transitions, some radical changes in food and staff, and has lately maintained a reasonably high standard in both. The food is fresh and well-prepared and the waitstaff knows how to talk about it -- a good thing,... More

While visiting the Clark and Williams College museums, my wife and I enjoyed two superb meals at Mezze. The service was first-rate, and the knowledgeable servers helped us understand several of the entree and side dish descriptions. The chef incorporates fresh, local ingredients in creative preparations...the heritage pork, fried oyster, and salmon belly mains were excellent. And any of the... More

We had been to Allium Restaurant in Great Barrington and really enjoyed it, so we wanted to try this one which is their sister restaurant in the same group. We were not disappointed. As a first course, I had the hen of the woods mushrooms with an egg yolk in the middle and ham crumbs on top. It was shaped... More

We went to dinner here on a package deal that we got through the Porches Inn. We ordered off the menu (none of the specials), the whole meal was wonderful but the appetizers were simply outstanding. Love that they use locally sourced food, I recommend this as a special dinner out in northwest Massachusetts.

Cozy and delightful, locally sourced food. Some portions a bit small but very tasty and the setting is quite romantic.

We showed up and it was very busy. The food was great but the service was HORRIBLE. It was my moms birthday and our waitress took forever to take our drink and food orders. We had to keep reminding her to bring drinks to our table. The amount of food on the plate was not worth the money and the... More

We had lunch here before going to The Clark. The food is very fresh and presented nicely. It is nicely decorated and in a perfect location for wondering around town. The staff are friendly.

this was a great find. It satisfied my critical foodie palate. The artic char was very good. The salads were also very good. The desserts also very good. The portions could have been 10% more according to my husband who is normally not a big eater. But i was ok

From the greeting at the door, to wait staff, bartender...the staff give pleasant but not overbearing attention to detail. The meal was very enjoyable, pork and beef meatballs...to die for. Would highly recommend.
