Just OK – Be warned: Mezza's website is completely out of date -- prices are incorrect and beverage offerings on the menu are totally different from the website. I find this tremendously annoying and, unfortunately, very common these days. But beyond that, the food is just OK, certainly nothing to rave about especially at $7.00 per small plate (yes, it seems reasonable but the portions really are tiny and those $7 plates add up pretty quickly) Ambience is OK, but again absolutely nothing special. I probably won't be back.
Great food and atmosphere! – This place is truly unique. Highly recommended! They also have a lounge which is only open on Friday and Saturday. We had great deal of fun!
Great food at a great price – As someone who comes from the middle east region I can safely say that Mezza's food is just perfect and always brings back memories of home! All the dishes Ive had so far have been tasty and nicely presented. The service is outstanding - always friendly & helpful. We'll be back many more times !
Authentic cuisine that won't break the bank – Great, authentic food and good atmosphere. Whenever I'm spending an evening in the Decatur area this place is always a destination. I would say get reservations because it's packed on a weekend night. They also just opened a new lounge next door that serves the same foods. Definitely try the Lebanese wine selection, which is a nice touch and of good quality. - Ben
Great tapas style restaurant – We had a great experience at Mezza. Lots and lots of small plates to choose from and good Lebanese wine too. Try a glass of the Chateau Musar Hocher or the Chateau Ksara if you like red wines. This is a great little restuarant and all of the dishes (we tried 9) were very tastey (the Baklawa is terrific). A big group would do well here, and the price is right.
good stuff, very enjoyable. – The choices of small plates vary from good to excellent, but I've never been disappointed, as tastes vary. Always impresses guests as a nice but not stuffy place, good prices and the mezza configuration makes it easy to eat just enough and not overstuff yourself.
Do save room for dessert!
Not as good as I was told – Food is ok. I have had much better, fresher Mediterranean food.Too bland
A fun place – Mezza is a charming little restaurant, though a bit out of the way. A great place to go with friends the share a bottle of wine and sample a variety of Lebanese food. There aren't a lot of restaurants still run by an extended family, as is Mezza. They do a great job making you feel at home and serving up great food. The wine list is surprisingly good.
An Experience To Savor... – My partner and I have brought several friends to Mezza. Only once was the service annoying, but no one is perfect. :-)
The food each and everytime is absolutely amazing. I highly recommend the "group" menu. For roughly $17 or so dollars per person. (4 max) You can select three main courses, two salads/appetizers, two meats, and something else. In most cases ordering the tapas is the hardest part of the meal.
The food is truly authenticate....we actually plan on going there again tonight! :-)
Tapas-style Middle Eastern specialties and simple vegetarian offerings shine at this easygoing bistro. – The Scene
Emory staff, retired world travelers and nouveau hippies alike keep coming back to this low-key locale. The comfy main room with its tile floors and neutral colors is warmed by Middle Eastern background music and sepia prints of old Lebanon.
Though Mezza's menu offers over 70 options, stick to the simpler items. Exquisitely creamy hummus comes with a hearty jolt of lemon. Fried cauliflower--spice coated, seared and topped with nutty tahini dressing--is delightful. Ditto the Shawarma--tender, mild beef slices served with the same tahini dressing. As for salads, tabbouleh is so parsley-laden that it's nearly unchewable, but the al raee, with its smooth, sweetish roasted eggplant, and counterpoint of tomatoes, onion and garlic, is a more reliable choice. Don't overlook executive chef Liza's ice cream with its crunchy, buttery caramelized almonds, for dessert.
