I had passed this place several times before trying it out for the first time with a couple of friends. Wasn't sure what to expect but I went there wanting to like it. In the absence of significant competition in the area, I was hoping to find that the Mezzo had established itself as a classy bistro, with good atmosphere, lively staff and some music to fit the mood, as well as good food. Maybe my expectations were a bit hyped up but I left feeling a bit flat. The interior was smart although the atmosphere was subdued. The staff were pleasant but not very knowledgeable regarding the menu. The choice on the menu was fine but we failed to appreciate the need for some simple side dishes to supplement the richness of the servings. Overall presentation of the food was very good although the salmon was a little overdone. The dessert of the day, a trio of chewy chocolate in 2 shot glasses served with a lump of scotch mist, was one to be missed and sort of summed up the evening. Really felt this place could be special and could capture a market niche in the area, but based on my first visit, its not quite there yet. Hopefully soon it will be.
