A word from La Mediterranee Bistro & Wine Bar
Since 1980, La Mediterranee Bistro & Wine Bar has been well known in Manhattan for traditional French cuisine and contemporary specialties served in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
La Mediterranee Bistro & Wine Bar is a French Bistro carrying not only the gastronomic traditions of Provence and Cote D' Azur, but also those of other regions of France, represented in our daily specials such as: Bouillabaisse, Pot au feu and Cassoulet. We offer an array of fresh seafood, with a great emphasis on mussels, including five different recipes. The Italian influence in the South of France is of course manifested in our pastas prepared with our family recipes.Continued

  • "The food was very good and the service was polite and unobtrusive. We thought the cost for dinner was reasonable. Dinner was at 6:30 and there were only 4 couples, so noise level was negligible."

  • "an adorable little gem on the east site. Beouf bourguignon was the best i ever had. Escargot was extremely flavorful surrounded with parsley and garlic. Trout was excellent. A great place."

  • "the wine list is expensive and doesn't have vintages. the service is brusque. the food tastes like something you would get on an airplane. the piano player repeats himself. on the positive side, the room is kind of pretty, if dated, and it's quiet. i would not go back."

  • "I've been frequenting La Mediterranee since 1985. I've brought customers there for business lunches, girlfriends for romantic dinners and good friends when looking for excellent food, good ambiance and a good place for conversation. A relatively small restaurant gives the owner, Ernesto, the opportunity to oversee everything. Food is very well prepared and comes piping hot to your table. They've had a pianist for years, who adds to the wonderful ambiance. The menu is kind of a hybrid French Bistro; wonderful fish, pasta, steak, fries to die for, tasty desserts. Wait staff is very attentive, but never intrusive. What can I tell you, I love this restaurant. In the spring/summer they have tables out in front."

  • "We were a group of nine. We were very well accommodated. The service was fine. The menu was typically French, including the specials. The prices of the food and wine were reasonable. We would certainly return if in the area again."

  • "A neighborhood French restaurant with excellent food, La Mediterranee is also appealing for its piano music--mostly Gershwin show tunes."
