We were shopping on Elmwood Avenue one night and stopped in for dinner. The decor is soft and dark and has a cozy feel to it - the space has an upper and lower section (bar and hookah on lower section). We didn't even see the hookah until a group finished their meal and went down to apparently share an after dinner smoke (I think you get your own mouthpiece for the single large hookah) - it was interesting! We were with our teen daughters so we passed on the hookah, but the meal was excellent - right portions, nice presentation, well prepared and seasoned food - not too heavy on garlic or spices (I like both, but hare when a place kills all other flavor with them!) - and fresh and healthy selections! We are chicken souvlaki and chicken shawarma wraps - everything was good - our only gripe was the very slow service - we waited a long time to order and then another long time for the food to come - and it was not overly busy! That was the one downside to an otherwise fresh and fun dining experience!

We were three for lunch at Mezza and we were all happy with our lunch. The service was attentive and very friendly and my only regret was that I didn't have time to have coffee in the comfortable lounge area on the main floor. Next time...

I too liked the babaganoush, hummus & tzadiki on a mezza plate.
We struggled figuring out what all those names of menu items were, so we stuck to the vegetarian appetizers and shrimp flavored with honey. Prices were reasonable and our waitress should be applauded: she was patient, lovely to order from and attentive. This worked as a light meal locale, but cannot comment about the other part of menu.

We were actually on our way to a Thai restaurant, but on a whim decided to try Mezza. We started out with babaganoush, hummus & tzadiki on a mezza plate. All three excellent. The house salad was likewise excellent. The we shared a lamb chop dinner which came with eight lamb chops (for one person?), done rare just as we asked. The hostess and our server were both most gracious. The food was served quickly and everything was delicious. How much better can it get?
