Messa is really hip and great. Went there late on a Friday without a reservation. It was totally full, but I was able to be seated. The food was interesting and well made. Outstanding wine list with great choices from Israel. Very cool crowd. At the very top for Tel Aviv.

My wife and I had dinner at Messa. The food was satisfactory, but pricey for what it was. No problem with that; but when we were leaving we asked for the front desk to call a taxi cab for us to get back to our hotel, as it was well beyond walking distance at the late hour. They were unable... More

We have been trying different fusion Israeli restaurants over the last year and are amazed at the innovative nature of Israeli Chefs jay have decided to veer away from the standard Hummas and Shwarma boring stuff. It is quite difficult to make it in Tel Aviv as it is so to our surprise Messa turns out to be one of... More

We were really looking forward to this but i have to say it did not wiite live up to our expectations. It was lovely but not exceptional. My starter and desert were wonderful but the main course dish was quite disappointing. The service also was not awefuly friendly. We did expect more from a place claiming to be the institution!

The appetizers were great. The tuna sashimi was terrific the endive salad was terrific. The main dishes were the lamb chops and sea bass which were both terrific. The service was not at the level of the food. They did not serve the water and left it at the table for us to serve. The food came out st different... More

There was something a little try hard about the decor of this restaurant that I didn't like but the food was excellent. We were on a work evening out so got a limited version of the menu but even choosing between two main dishes was hard. Everything was delicious, beautifully presented, and the wines which accompanied the meals were well... More
