A word from Mandaloun
With a casual, warm, friendly and inviting atmosphere, Mandaloun brings to the peninsula ethnically diverse flavors of the Mediterranean. Our Chef's passion for his food is well represented in all of the dishes on the menu both in his small plates as well as his entrees. Every dish on the menu is exceptional in its presentation as only the freshest and finest products are used to prepare each dish. Mandaloun believes in supporting the local trade as we works directly to bring to the restaurant outstanding sustainable products. Our unique wine list prepared by LeeAnn Kaufman is the perfect complement to the unique food. A full bar with specialty drinks, a warm fireplace to gather around, Mandaloun is the place to come home to.

Diner Reviews
  • "Great food and friendly service - will definitely be back!"

  • "Met friends there for dinner. Did our usual thing of ordering several appetizers and wine and sharing all around. The hummus plate, and grilled lamb are always great!"

  • "Food is very good. Can eat from appetizers and little plates or full entree. Great bar and wine list. Can be a little noisy but well worth a visit."

  • "We had a great French waiter for Valentine's Day. The dishes were all excellent. My main dish was a paella. It had plenty of seafood, a few veggies - peas & celery, and rice perfectly done. The only change I'd have made (and this might have been expensive) was to add a few more peas and a few slices of sweet red pepper to make it more colorful and use saffron (very expensive though) in the rice. This was the best paella I've had in California (where many of them have greasy sausage on greasy rice). The food here was not greasy, the vegetables were fresh. For dessert we shared an ice cream bomba. It was a sorbet that included mango, encased in white chocolate with drizzled dark chocolate - enough for 2. Restaurant has cozy fireplace."

  • "We shared several small plates, which were all delicious. The flavors spanned a variety of places along the mediterranean coast from Morocco to Spain to Italy. Felt like a mini vacation! They handled a busy Valentine's Day night well."

  • "My husband and I came here for Valentine's day, which was our second time at Mandaloun. Since they were so busy, service was a tiny bit slower than usual but still good. The interior of the restaurant is very romantic and impressive, with huge vaulter ceilings, beautiful archways and faux stone work. The food is excellent. We have had the hummus and mussels appetizer, which were both delicious. We have also had two pasta dishes, the paella and bistro steak and all were excellent. Drinks and desserts are wonderful as well. I don't think you can go wrong here."

  • "We had a great experience at the bar area at Mandaloun. Good happy hour menu and yummy champagne. I took a friend there to celebrate a resignation and it was a great atmosphere. Service was quite attentive and genuine. Will definitely be back."

  • "4 of us went to dinner before a concert at the Fox. The food was delicious, but they were understaffed. Don't go if you're rushed, but do go!"

  • "Karen and I had a delightful lunch at Mandaloun in Redwood City. Menu variety was excellent as was the delicious food. Service impeccable as well. Truly a most enjoyable dining experience!"

  • "We had heard about Mandaloun from a couple of friends so decided to give it a try. All four of us enjoyed the food and while it was already a lively New Year's eve at 7:30pm, the staff took good care of us. We felt very welcome and will definitely be back."

  • "We were celebrating an end of an era (sale of a business). We had everything from appetizers to dessert. Food is Mediterranean in nature. We had the Middle Eastern/Greek platter of hummus, baba ghanoush, and Tzatziki and pita (always a hit), entrees included linguine with clams, fried calamari, beef skewers. The bomba (mango and raspberry sorbet inside a white chocolate shell is the bomb! They make a really great Mojito at the bar. The staff is always friendly and efficient. One of favorite places in downtown Redwood City."

  • "We started looking mid Sunday afternoon on Yelp for a good restaurant to meet up with another couple for dinner and a movie in Redwood City. We considered a few other places but two were closed on Sundays and the others didn't sound good to all of us. I found Mandaloun with decent reviews and it was open on Sunday evening. The menu sounded wonderful. We sat at a window table near the entrance with no other guests around us. The place didn't seem very busy. The lighting was romantically dim. I didn't pay much attention to the decor as I was excited to visit with our friends. We ordered several of the "Small Plates" to share and all were awesomely good! The servers were attentive and knowledgeable about the food and wine. Will go back!"

  • "With a small but diverse menu, there's something to please everyone. I always peruse the entire menu, but come back to my longtime favorite - the funghi pizza with caramelized onions. The pizza is generous-sized enough to feed 2 for a light meal, but I always bring home half for my lunch the next day. The ambiance, particularly in winter if you sit near the cheerful fireplace, is quite warm and inviting. Mandaloun is a neighborhood gem, contributing to the revitalization of downtown Redwood City. Take a stroll after dinner to see what is happening in the vibrant downtown area."

  • "I phoned Mandaloun and a lovely young lady invited us to come in on such short notice. We arrived, the hostess welcomed us with a beautiful smile and seated us promptly. Our server was Cassandra-very pleasant to work with and another great smile. Our water guy was kind and had an upbeat attitude. I would say this is a restaurant that where employees enjoy what they do because in addition to the service, the food was fantastic-FRESH! We'll be back for dessert, soon."

  • "Just terrible service. Only two servers for a huge room of diners, and they seemed disinterested in serving as well. Too bad because that area needs some better rated restaurants and this has a nice atmosphere. Will never return."
