We went there in a company of 12 with kids. The staff was quite good, they brought food for the kids very fast, which is a good sign. We tried two dishes each, everything was on a highest standard. We spend very good time there. They have a bar next door which was super convenient for the ones who smoke!

Our food varied from the delicious fois gras to average and disappointing salmon and salad. The wine was also average. We noticed a number of customers leave when they had to sit at the long table. Very hip but not backed... More

Reserved the private room for dad's birthday and it was absolutely a great choice as everyone enjoyed the food and decor, the service is always precise. Maybe the best up class restaurant in Israel.

Messa is really hip and great. Went there late on a Friday without a reservation. It was totally full, but I was able to be seated. The food was interesting and well made. Outstanding wine list with great choices from Israel. Very cool crowd. At the very top for Tel Aviv.
