I love Mezze. They have great happy hour with 1/2 price apps and lovely wine. Dinner is always great, with a delicious tapas menu you can make a new delicious meal every time you go.

My Husband and I went on a Monday night for a random date night. We sat at the dining area on the top floor, it was quiet and the waitress was pleasant and didn't hover over us because it few guests. We sat at the window for a view and we ate the lamb and chicken kabobs and a dessert! Soooo good! Would recommend to EVERYBODY!

Food was decent but service overall was slow (had a reservation but still had to wait about 20 minutes afterwards to be seated and then took maybe 10 minutes once seated just to get menus). The server was very nice and tried her best and the food was pretty decent and not super overpriced. Would probably be a great spot for a date night, just a little slow at times for what we were looking for that evening.

My family met here for New Year's eve dinner. We had a diverse group which included 4 vegetarians. Mezze had excellent authentic and delicious choices for everyone! The tasting menu was phenomenal! My sister and her husband were thrilled when the chef created a vegetarian tasting menu for them in the spot! The service and attention and food was outstanding! Highly recommend!

Soft spot in the middle of Fells Point. If you're there for the wonderful, varied menu---ask for a table upstairs. The bar can get very busy (didn't try the cocktails; must be popular), and the conversation gets tightly squeezed at the nearby tables.

The waiter warned us that while it was a tapas-style menu, the portions are more like two or three regular tapas. He suggested we order three items each; I think two people could share three items and feel quite satisfied.

Always ask for their specials...the foodie staff will make sure you're are happy that you gave them a try.

Recommended for pre or post theater or movie or other outing---enjoy!

the restaurant never got our reservation so that is on open table ( way to go open table) doubtful we will use you again. as all restaurants are in fells point everything is tapas size. we got spinach pie was ok at best not much flavor, new York strip ( hardly ) on a bed of potatoes that was good and chicken kabobs they were good but bring a flashlight as the place is so poorly lite after 15 minutes our eyes were killing us. we wish we could say we liked the place but we cant.

Been going here for years & have always had great meals/service, but this trip was different. Let me preface this by saying that we had an early 4:00 p.m. reservation & were the only people in the restaurant for at least a half hour. It took about 15 mins to get our drinks ordered. And even longer for food. When some of the hot items came out, they were barely warm. The waiter was subpar, we had to ask him for refills, he was not very attentive at all, especially considering he only had one other table. We were celebrating birthday which they knew, but didn't even suggest desert. Not sure if there has been an ownership change, but they need to step up their service & kitchen game. Not sure if I'll return anytime soon.

Awesome food. Friendly people. But they forgot we had a reservation - 30 minutes after we checked in we were still sitting at the bar and the waiter admitted he forgot about us. Then dinner took literally 3 hours - no refilled water, or bread, slow delivery of food, and no apologies. We left so disappointed with the service that it was hard to focus on the quality of the food. :(

Food was great but the service was terrible. The restaurant wasn’t that busy either. They also added a 20% gratuity on for a table of 5 so be aware of not adding extra tip unless you really want to. The decor is fun and there are more tables upstairs.

I was with a group of four, and our waiter recommended what were the nest sellers. We had hummus and pita bread as an appetizer, as well as one order of the lentils. Both were delicious. One person in our group is a vegetarian, and there were plenty of choices for her to choose from. All our choices were delicious including the orzo, fried calamari, asparagus (although this was a little over cooked for my tastes), the eggplant, braised beef, lamb chops, ravioli,and the spinach pies. Our menu choices were delicious. We completed our meal with baklava, which was delicious, and not overly sweet.
I would return without hesitation.

Went to this place because they were a tapas restaurant and we just wanted small plates. Sat at the bar as it was very nice outside. Getting the bad out of the way, I really do not like those goblet wine glasses. Even with table wine, it just seems wrong not using a proper wine glass, but a lot of tapas places do it so... Had the mezzas which was hummus, tzatziki and one made with eggplant which has various names depending on where you are (baba ganoush?). They all were pretty good, although they have some pretty good competition with some other places I have been. The grilled calamari was an excellent dish which when done well have you glad they didn't fry it! So they have this salmon dish they say has people coming back. It is a honey barbeque roasted salmon. So the consistency is like roasted salmon pieces which to my taste buds are incredibly sweet and take away from the salmon. It almost makes you wish they had just smoked it with the sauce and it would have been better. There were a number of other items to try on the menu and I do look forward to trying other items as they do have a respectable selection.

The food is great, as usual, but the service was soooooo slow. We had 7:30 reservations & got the tasting menu. At 9:15, we had still failed to get our 3rd course, had plans out so we told them to keep it.

I've had their tasting menu twice. I think it is an excellent bargain and you get to sample a little bit of a lot of things. We all agreed that we liked the start of the meal, the tsatsiki, hummus, pita, village salad and then the eggplant, stuffed grape leaves and the spinach pie the best. The spinach was the best of the three baked samples. The meal section was good but portions small, after all the other food it was fine to keep it small. I only ate shrimp (I"m a pescaterian). One person said some of the chicken was fatty, I wish the potatoes weren't served under the meat and the veggie pieces on the skewers are tiny but overall the flavors are good. We all agreed also that we didn't really care for the crab cakes and didn't think the belonged on a Greek menu but are just a nod to local cuisine. I would like it if they included some roasted greek potatoes or you could have more shrimp or lamb and no crab. Dessert was very moist and tasty baklava with a little bit of fruit. We also had the white sangria, it was refreshing but had no fruit in it. I would recommend this restaurant. All the food, minus liquor, was $29 per person.

This is some of the best food I’ve had in Baltimore! My husband and I went for restaurant week and got to try practically everything on the menu and it was all delicious! I DESPISE eggplant and yet somehow I loved the eggplant they made! I tried a ton of stuff I didn’t know what it was and it was still amazing. I could recommend a place more, and the ambiance is just adorable. Lots of privacy and little flowers in the windows. Perfect for a date, family get together, dinner with friends or happy hour- perfect for everything!

I didn't think the food was very good. My boyfriend got the tiny "Chicken Skewers" and I tried to bite into the chicken and it was like rubber. Horrible. I got salmon in barbecue sauce, and it was these little tiny blocks of salmon in a little dish with barbecue sauce. Can't say that I loved it.

We enjoyed a splendid dinner of smal plates at Mezze, ranging from starters of hummus and Greek salad to a finish with dessert. We enjoyed some plates more than others. Outstanding choices included the baby lamb chops, crab cakes, and Greek salad. Less satisfying choices included the hummus and grilled shrimp, which were grainy and dry respectively. Service on this particular evening was friendly, but a little slow.

The summer restaurant week menu was delicious! We enjoyed getting to try so many small plates rather than ordering a larger meal. The drinks were wonderful but pricy. The service was fair. We waited for our last course for about an hour without a server even coming by our table. Service could definitely be improved upon during the dinner rush. Overall a good experience. I would definitely return!

From the ginger Margarita all the way through to desert. Great place for a date, special occasion, after work meetup... Too bad I couldn't adjust the size of the pictures I took to share.
