This is a gem of a restaurant with absolutely delicious, flavorful food, and generous helpings. This was our first time visiting an Ethiopian restaurant. Our server answered all of our questions for us and always made sure our drinks were filled. We were seated immediately...More

We enjoyed the variety of well spiced foods here. Three of us stopped for dinner on a Thursday at 7pm. We were seated immediately at the window table, most of the other tables we could see were occupied. The service was remarkably fast and efficient....More

Great veggie option with a meal for two. My teenage daughter loved the injera bread and the tasty food

We stopped at Meskerem for lunch. It was our first visit. If we had been before, we probably would have split an order, as they were large. The lunch specials are in the $10-12 range. The beef tips were nicely trimmed, spiced, but not overwhelmingly...More

The food at Meskerem is pretty decent. I really enjoyed eating without silverware, for the full experience. The spices were great and the serving size was very generous for the price. I recommend the meat sampler platter for a good variety. Drink options were limited.

Wife and I split the vegetarian sampler for 2. It was the perfect amount of food, it was fresh, and the service was very good. At times they were even doubling up service on our table keeping our drinks topped off. Try the honey wine!...More

You're in for an adventure. Be sure to wash your hands, because they'll be your utensils as you scoop up luscious lentils, vegetables, and meats. The food is spicy, but not overwhelming. What a fun meal!

I won't be going back to Meskerem but the fault is mine. I apparently don't like the taste of Ethiopian food. The menu was appealing but I couldn't taste, in my selection, many of the flavors described on the menu. Admittingly, I am a picky...More

I had never had Ethiopian food before. I've only come across one other restaurant since, and the food is nowhere near as good as it is here. Go with a friend or a crowd and get the sampler platters - delicious and informative. The staff...More
