The people working here have the worst attitude ever. They got a portion of my order wrong and when the food was not eaten they still expected me to pay for it(despite me stating this isn't right). I was given the stare of death by the waitress. The food that I did eat was good. But my advice is to get your food to go... You don't want these negative nancys' spoiling your meal !!!

We are diehard Ethiopian resto goers -- from NYC to Paris to Tel Aviv, we chase Ethio fare everywhere. Otherwise generally we don't eat out. Meske is IT for us. Our office is nearby, so we go virtually daily for their lunch special -- 1/2 dinner price, same food, same portions. The staff knows our faces well now, but we were always treated graciously before. The food is delectable, especially on Mons and Thurs when they prepare for the week and the w/end. I speak for the veggie fare b/c we're vegan. Luv, luv, luv.

The service was really bad ...the staff here have a real attitude problem ask them which wine would complement the food and the answer we got was sorry I don't drink wine !!! With regards to the food I am sure you can find someplace else as the whole experience is nothing great . Also if you have a sweet tooth it is going to be dissapointing as they don't have any desserts to offer !!! So I strongly recommend some place else where with food hospitality also is a concern ...

We went back with memories of great food. Sorely dissapointed. My husband ordered Doro Wat and what a disaster. The chicken was pure rubber.could not take a bite without losing teeth. When we brought it to the attention of the waitresses, they couldn't have caref less. She nodded her head and went about her business and charged us in full although it was obviously unpalatable and uneaten. I ordered mesit wat and it was nothing like the dish should be. What a dissapointment.

After being shuttered for a while it was open when I went back a few days ago. It seems to have a new name -- Meske Ethiopian Restaurant on a new business card and a new phone number: 212.399.1949. New owners? I got two vegtable lunch special combinations to go. The taste was much better than recent years and the portions were quite ample. New chef? Will be going back soon try some other the other dishes I uses to get.

[After posting a review last year saying that midtown Meskerem's portions got smaller, I wanted to give an update.] I went back recently for the lunch special and was pleasantly surprised to see that the portions were back to normal.

I have been to Meskerem twice now... the first time with a friend who wanted to introduce me to Ethopian and the second to introduce the food to someone else. Both times we had good service and great food. I don't know what people are saying about portion size because both times we couldn't finish our food because there was so much. Fantastic flavors and friendly staff. I can't wait to go back again. It's truly one of my new favortie places because the food is so good. The atmosphere isn't much, but who cares when the food is delicious.
