The food was terrific and the service was equally as good. The atmosphere was pleasant but Parking is a problem!

Food and service are excellent ! Very good alternative to standard “burger style, always same type of food” restaurants in the area. Wine list is long and reasonable. Nice bar with nice cocktails too.

Liked the atmosphere and service was impeccable. College town ambience was nice and the menu fairly ambitious, impressed with overall quality and found many unique options that made the experience stand out coming from California.

We had dinner here in late October. The restaurant caters to the Williams college crowd. We saw a number of families that definitely looked like mom and dad with two or three college age students. The restaurant is quiet. The menu is relatively limited. I...More

For our last evening in the area, Mezze was the easy choice. We've dined there several times over the years, and our latest visit more than lived up to our high expectations. We shared a very interesting and tasty appetizer to start: hazelnuts and pomegranate...More

We've been here three times. This time the menu was exactly the same as the last time, a year ago. That was disappointing. The food is prepared well but the prices seem quite high for what you're getting. It's like a mid-range restaurant trying to...More

There isn't much upscale dining in this area; this place tries but it doesn't make it. The restaurant itself is elegant and the service is good. Unfortunately, the food is bad. Had the bistro steak which was over-sauced, salty; poor quality and barely edible. My...More

I don't know about proximity to the theater. We were both wearing jeans; the deck is completely casual. It appeared that the inside is business casual, as well, e.g., no swim cover-ups, tank tops, et al.

About a 5 minute drive, but allow extra time -- maybe another 5 or 10 minutes -- to find parking.
