I've been going to Cafe Mezza regularly with family and co-workers for about 3 years now, and everyone has always loved it. It's nice without being pretentious, and the services is always attentive. The food is phenomenal, and consistently so. Their pastas are fantastic, and they have excellent sandwiches and soups, and a superb burger. Also home to my favorite dessert anywhere -- white chocolate bread pudding. I'm a bread pudding junkie -- and I'm not sure I'd really call this bread pudding -- but it's indescribably good. All very fairly priced considering the quality.

This is a very great place to dine. We have been going there since we were engaged more than two years ago and have not bothered to try any other places. The place is clean and inviting. The staff is great and above all the food is simply great. Led by Chef Mke, food quality has been always consistent without any flaws. The food is a bit pricy, but is worth the money. I would recommend it all the way.

I love this place. The menu is huge, varied and reasonably priced.

I dine here often and it's become the standard for where I go with people from out of town. I've taken young friends and people my parents age here and everyone loves it. A colleague recently came into town & asked if we could go to that chicken place again.

OK, I'll admit that their hummus is ordinary. But, I love their chicken kabobs (Shish Tawook) & the roasted red pepper dip. When I started going here, I would get the mixed grill kabobs, but I realized that I preferred their chicken to the filet mignon. It's that good! My Dad recently ordered the Lamb & it was fanatstic. Good enough that I might get that instead of their chicken.

Service is good, but more than that, they are amazingly accomodating. I'm not a huge fan of white rice, so they allow me to substitute au gratin potatoes instead, with no attitude! A friend who is diabetic was allowed to have extra grilled veggies.

This is a very nice restaurant with excellent food, good staff, and decent prices. A rare combination these days.

I have been a patron of this cafe for a while and all I can say is they keep getting better and better. Their wait staff is very attentive and their portions are huge without the huge pricetag. You have an array of choices from soups,salads,sandwiches and grilled items. My personal fave is the Mixed Grill. You get a skewer of chicken breast kabob.a skewer of filet mignon kabob and a ground beef skewer. It also comes with rice and veggies. This platter is big enough for two. Try to save room for dessert they have the best White Chocolate Bread Pudding in town.

When we heard the smooth jazz blaring from outside the restaurant, we should have known better. There were some good points about the food - the red pepper dip and hummus were quite tasty - however, much of the menu was overpriced. The bartender gave me a weak pour on the glass of wine I ordered, and I almost sent it back to ask for more. The waitstaff was overly attentive and had an air of desperation. A few words of advice - kill the smooth jazz, lower your prices, and get the waitstaff to cool it a little bit. The food is decent, though I can't imagine being a repeat customer here.
