Mediterranean-Israeli cuisine is a wonderful addition to the area restaurants. Appetizers such as hummus, crispy cauliflower and Israeli salad are excellent starters. Fish tacos, salmon and shishcabob.

We have eaten at Mezza three times since it has opened, all of them positive experiences. They have done a nice job with the decor, noise level is moderate and the presentation and serving pieces are top notch. The food is Israeli/Mediterranean and we have enjoyed both the fish a nd meat selections. Its also a byob which is great for wine drinkers like myself. The owner/manager has come by our table each time and given the crowds, it looks like Mezza is off to a good start.

I Wish we lived near this restaurant because I would be there every single week at least once. The food is so fresh and so beautifully prepared. Even the cauliflower appetizer was perfect, and our branzino was crisp and moist. Next time we’re visiting that area, we will be back. I wish they’d open in Bucks County.

This new restaurant to Livingston is a welcome and refreshing addition. We have eaten here twice already and have been satisfied diners. We sampled most of the mezzes (the hummus is beyond delish), as well as the cauliflower, octopus and falafel appetizers — and polished off the plates. We also ordered the branzino, shish kebab, chicken tajine, and orzo as entrees and loved it all. Be sure to save room for the decadent chocolate soufflé. It was the bomb. Thanks to our server Shana for the dessert recommendation — and the excellent and seemless service.

We had high expectations. But we have to conclude that Mezza is a mediocre, overrated and overpriced place. The bread was good!. As an appetizer we had the octopus, however the sweet potatoe purée was not a good marriage with the octopus. For entrees we had the lamb shank and the Moroccan chicken tagine. Unfortunately, the chicken tagine was very sweet. The lamb was good, but the orzo that came with it was very mushy, and the spinach was too salty. All in all, a very disappointing experience. The staff was very friendly, but we will not go back.
