At the height of the summer season the restaurant was fully booked for president theater dinner. We were seated on time and service achieved a good balance:attentive but not rushed. Locally sourced food was prepared in interesting ways. The only down side was the acoustics... we found it hard to... read more

At the height of the summer season the restaurant was fully booked for president theater dinner. We were seated on time and service achieved a good balance:attentive but not rushed. Locally sourced food was prepared in interesting ways. The only down side was the acoustics... we found it hard to hear each other across our table for four.

There are very few high end restaurants with great food AND great service in Williamstown. We were pleasantly surprised to find outstanding service to go with delicious and inventive cuisine. The name Mezze is deceptive. It's really a mixed Mediterranean menu with various starts, couple of pastas, one fish and four mains. I had heirloom tomatoes with burrata and melon... More

We didn't make reservations as we were just in the area for one night and hadn't been sure where we going to end up. The place was packed (it was returning students weekend at Williams), but we were able to get a seat at the bar. As there were just two of us, if worked out great, plus the added... More

We had an excellent meal here, staff was friendly and welcoming and answered our questions. The beet soup was deliciously fresh and complex flavors for simple ingredients. Tomato/melon salad was perfect, the hyssop was a nice touch that was different. Really enjoyed the salmon entree over the vegetable ribbons, and the chicken breast was perfectly cooked and the vegetables delicious.... More

We have visited Williamstown several times and find Mezze to be the best and most consistently excellent of all the restaurants in town. The menu, which is based on locally sourced, seasonal ingredients changes regularly and always includes interesting new dofferings. Everything we had on the two occasions last week that we dined at Mezze was expertly prepared and beautifully... More

My husband and I enjoy fine restaurants and eat out often. Last night we ate at Mezze and were very impressed. The food was delicious and creative and in our opinion quite exceptional. Everything we ordered was great and the service was lovely. Our waitress was Alex and she was warm and helpful. I highly recommend Mezze

I was visiting Williamstown to see an exhibit at the newly renovated Clark Art Institute. Mezze was the perfect end to a beautiful summer day in the Berkshires. They are currently celebrating the Summer of Greylock Gin, so I started my meal with a cocktail called the Yellow Brick Road made with the local gin. It was exactly the right... More

A foodie's delight. Farm to table menu with variety but not an overwhelming number of options. Beautiful inside or out.

hubby & I got there around 7:00 pm. We were offered a seat outside and waited over 25 minutes to be offered a drink even though 3-4 waitresses came outside to clear tables. It was not very busy - my husband &I I were the second couple outside. Would not recommend. Go to coyote mexican restaurant instead.
