Meze is always great - great service, food, and an experience! They have adjusted well to post-covid dining times with hand sanitizer for all customers, spaced out tables, outdoor dining, contactless menu's, staff also wore masks and gloves. Highly recommend the dips, zucchini cakes, and lamb sis kebabs!

The only problem is that the entire menu looked amazing. The food we ordered (meatballs, lamb kebob, babaganoush) was the best we have ever had. The mojitos were superb. Price is on the higher side potentially, but a perfect first date spot.

The food is great and the servers are absolutely wonderful! They even gave us a free green tea shot at the end of our lunch. Would definitely recommend! The patio is nice (extended onto the street due to covid). Portions are small, so the tapas may add up... but it’s worth the price.
I would definitely return!

We ate last night at Meze and it was an excellent experience. The food was great, the service was attentive and friendly and the restaurant was attractive and comfortable. But what took this from a nice evening out to a really memorable evening was the server. He went out of his way to make us feel welcome, he helped us navigate Turkish wine selection (something neither of us was expert at) and he explained the dishes and some Turkish food.We will be back.

Meze was the perfect place to take my 3 girl friends for a fun Valentine's Day dinner. Tables were decorated with rose petals and other nice touches to highlight the holiday were throughout. The food was so good and the menu expansive enough to satisfy all diets and preferences. We ordered cocktails, an assortment of dinner food and dessert; all wonderful. The girls had never been and said they would definitely come back and recommend Meze to their friends. It's the perfect spot for a classy dinner before a night of bar hopping in AdMo.

Prior to making reservations for Valentine's Day I read the reviews and felt quite confident that it would not disappoint however I have to say, despite the roses, lighting and ambiance, the food was overall just OK. I was not "wow'ed" and neither was my partner.

Took my extended family of 7 to brunch on Sunday. The food was very good, good variety, pretty genuine Mediterranean fare with passable Turkish Coffee. The service was excellent, satisfying for Vegans, omnivores, gays and straights. This place in Adams Morgan is something of a hole-in-the-wall but overall a great time and good food. Because we went on Sunday morning around 10:30, parking was easy on the side streets. I would not recommend driving to this area almost any other time.

What an amazing place! I have lived in AdMo for a couple of years and for whatever reason never popped into Meze. I went with a friend this week and I am kicking myself for not having tried it before!
It was raining and chilly out (end of October), but the restaurant had opened up the front of the restaurant so we could be "outside" but still under cover. They placed a heater near the tables and the overhead lamps had heaters, too, so we were very comfortable.
We arrived with some time still left in happy hour, which our server pointed out. We ordered HH drinks (the house red is a delicious Tempranillo) and HH food. We got dessert later on, too. All the food was delicious and I am dying to go back to try more! High marks for the "veggie delight" - I don't remember what the exact name was, and the feta dish that was in a phyllo dough. YUM.
The servers were SUPER attentive, never pushy, and so accommodating. When we left they even reminded us of our umbrellas we'd left inside the main entrance.
I am waiting for an "appropriate" amount of time to pass before trying Meze again. Definitely a neighborhood gem :)
