A Greek Taverna right in the Marina. Luved the three spreads & stuffed eggplant. Leave room for yogurt dessert -worth the visit on its own.

I attended a private party in the loft area for a company function. The food was just ok, but the wine was flowing, so all was good.

Pros: great selection of greek wines

On a foggy SF day, the creamy white gigante beans at Mezes, smothered in an earthy and unforgettable tomato and herb sauce, will warm you up in no time. Much of the other veggie dishes here are vegan too, making this place proof positive

Mezes was a great place to hang out. My friends also had a great time. They have outstanding lamb chops and a veggie list to. The Greek wine list is also a plus. The only downside was that it was a little tough to get a table this past

I moved recently from Boston to SF. I love Greek cuisine, and love hole in the wall restaurants.\r
I noticed Mezes one day when I was walking in Marina. It looked just like the type of place that I would love - unsuspecting, not much

We got the zucchini cakes, lemon soup, small house salad, dipping trio, and dried/battered cod plus two glasses of wine and the tab with tip came to $80, which seemed high for a meal that wasn't very filling. Overall the food was pretty

Pros: Tasty bites, fun location

Cons: Staff disinterested, pricey

Mezes means bites - appetizer served family style. The bites, we found out, change periodically. I'd highly recommend the marinated mushroom dish & the lamb. They also had a good selection of vegetarian treats. Yummmy! My only complaint

Pros: Friendly service, no attitude, AND great food!

We had a party of three, one was vegetarian - everyone was happy and full by the end. Everything was tasty, from the dolmas, to the variety of hummus, right down to the olive oil. If you're in the mood for Greek food, this is the place

I have eaten and prepared Greek food for over 40 years. I have been to restaurants in Greece(Athens, Crete, Santorini etc), San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
Mezes is, by far, the most authentic Greek restaurant outside of Greece I have ever

Since my trip to Greece last summer I had been trying to find food that tasted like the real thing. The only Greek restaurant in San Francisco that woke up my taste buds was Mezes. Great value, nice folks. I will go back.

I heard this was a small plate restaurant, but the appetizer portions are really big. We over-ordered with our 5 choices. They were all extremely tasty. My personal favorite was the stuffed eggplant. We also tried the tzatziki w/ pita,

If not for the bad location this place is a wonderful find. The whole take on tapas is well done and the service is top-notch. This is the closest thing I have found to "real" greek food I've found in SF.
