SF Weekly's Description

This delightful place specializes in what we all like best in many Mediterranean restaurants: mezes, or appetizers, here served in "small plates" that are actually quite generous. Cover the table with plates of dolmas, taramosalata, tzatziki, unusual zucchini cakes, sausages, fried smelts, prawns - the list is long, and you'll have a feast. Mezes is a comfortable, down-to-earth spot, a find in a neighborhood that tends toward the trendy.

    Mezes is GREAT! Best Greek food in town. The lamb is amazing. And, I definitely recommend the grilled octopus. YUM.

    The restaurant is bigger from the inside compared to what it appears to be outside. So, it's a nice surprise. It can be a very romantic place for some people given, its interior. The food is absolutely amazing, especially mushrooms. I got two orders. Staff is very knowledgeable. They have a nice selection of wine and meat. One can easily spend there a couple of hours.
