fun Father's DayDefinitely not to be missed! Mediterraneo is a gem with great food, outstanding service and a beautiful atmosphere.6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMVERY NICE EVENING, NO COMPLAINTSThree of us spent about 3 hrs. at Holdren's last night enjoying each other's company, the drinks, and the food . . . it was all lovely. I have to say that a big part of why it was so enjoyable was the service . . . really, really, good! Our server was there at all of the right times, it was just perfect. And we can probably all agree that good service is very often non-existent in a dining establishment. One of us had the rack of lamb, one had a shrimp/steak combo, and one had the Chilean sea bass special. We shared one delicious shrimp appetizer and a dessert sampler. Everything was very, very good. It's a very noisy place, but sitting in a booth buffered some of the noise. Will definitely return.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe found this place on myWe found this place on my Open Table app as we were driving along. It is a beautiful stone restaurant in a lovely setting. We sat out on the front patio, and we were the only ones out there. But the waiter was most attentive, and the food was delicious. I only wish that it were located closer to where we live.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!We went here with friends for dinner and it was great. We all enjoyed our appetizers, meals and desserts.
The service was excellent and the place was very hip and lively. The braised short ribs were outstanding.
Highly recommended.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistent, Enjoyable, LovelyLove going to a weekend brunch here. It feels like we are on vacation. The outdoor patio is beautiful. The good is always wonderful, and the bloody mary's are very tasty. We will go back again and again.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways good...I've been to this restaurant several times and they are always consistent. Food and service are good. Great for a celebration or a regular night out.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMDisappointing serverI love this restaurant but this visit was disappointing. I was there with my family for a special occasion and we were put in the expansion room, and then kinda forgotten. The server may have been overwhelmed, I'm not sure but we had to keep asking for refills and there was a long wait to order and then get our food.
This isn't what I've ever experienced here, big bummer.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful night celebratingHad a wonderful night celebrating my 4th anniversary there..the staff is great and the service was top notch, as well as the food.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional food, exceptionalExceptional food, exceptional setting and exceptional service.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA Gem in WestlakeI just love sitting on the patio and listening to the water flow, the bird chirp and the ducks quack. You feel a million miles away from the big city. The food is really good too and not too pricey either.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food but slow serviceThe food was very good, but the service was incredibly slow. The servers seemed rushed, and it took over 2-1/2 hours to finish our meal and pay our bill. That was primarily because the time was so long between ordering our appetizers, bringing our appetizers, main courses, and desserts.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice meal, felt lost on patioWe went for Mother's Day, and were seated right at our reservation time. The waiter was very nice, but seemed a bit new at the job. He took our order promptly and had bread/water right away. A good start, but unfortunately never received our appetizer and weren't checked on often for water or bread. Also, the tables were rather squeezed together and I think my chair was hit by every waiter and busboy in the restaurant when they passed by.
The meals were great, the evening lovely and with a bit of fine tuning would be 5 stars. I enjoy outdoor eating but felt like we were getting less than the usually stellar treatment we receive when indoors.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful RestaurantThis was our second visit to this restaurant, the first being for a birthday, the 2nd for Mothers' Day. Unlike many restaurants that seem to "crank out" the food for mothers' day, we were not disappointed (as one often is on the 2nd visit). The Mediterraneo has definitely become our favorite place to go for special occasions.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Fresh FoodWe always have fresh food at this restaurant. The food did come a little cold, but it was a holiday and morning. I am not sure this is normally a breakfast restaurant. Evening meals are great.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinitely A GemThis is the second time we've been to Mediterraneo and both visits were amazing. We had dinner several months ago and this past weekend I took my wife here for Mothers Day breakfast. The wait staff is amazing, the manager is attentive and the ambience is amazing. They have a water fountain / stream / mini-lake that surrounds the restaurant and it makes for a great view. Have evening dinner with the flames blazing, outdoor heaters when needed and the sound and sight of running water and it makes for a romantic evening. I would highly recommend this restaurant. By the way, Mothers Day morning all the women were given a red rose when seated. A very nice touch.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!The food is always excellent , the service friendly and the patio by the lake beautiful! My only criticism is that they seem to be getting busier so the wait for food was a little longer than normal, but well worth it.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've recently been back toWe've recently been back to Mediterraneo several times and have enjoyed our meal on both occasions.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMStil on TopWe try all the new restaurants that open up in the area but Mediterraneo is still our favorite. Hands down the most creative and well prepared food, no one else is even close.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMwe ate outside on the patio.we ate outside on the patio. the food was outstanding- fish perfectly fresh and perfectly cooked, portion sizes just right. we had the excellent smoked salmon starter, the striped bass and seared albacore, and butterscotch pudding for dessert. nothing was overly rich, it was all just right. a definite hit- I hope we are back in the neighborhood sometime to come by here again4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had lentil soup, caesarWe had lentil soup, caesar salad and taglinetti bolognese - all excellent. Wish they had sustainable seafood (wild caught) though. We'd pass on the carrot cake dessert next time. It was ok but not great. Service was good and the atmosphere is nice.

Nice sunday for our birthday girl.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really enjoyed the foodWe really enjoyed the food and the service was excellent.

Very happy3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb meal. Perfect experience.My husband and I were still talking about the meal we had at Mediteraneo the next day. I ordered the short ribs with kale and the wedge salad. My husband ordered the rib eye with side of macaroni("the best tasting he's ever had). The food is the star of this place without a doubt. The restaurant decor is lovely with warm lighted candelabras and candle sconces everywhere, dark upholstery and a very romantic, intimate feel. The service is excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and can't wait to come back again.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply the best restaurantSimply the best restaurant in town and our go to restaurant in the area for lunch or dinner.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMMy friend is sometimes difficultMy friend is sometimes difficult to please, the server was wonderful, responsive and polite. I will return.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAte both dinner and breakfastAte both dinner and breakfast here. Food great both meals and excellent service.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have had dinner a coupleWe have had dinner a couple of times, and it was enjoyable. But Brunch was terrific.
The service was really incredible, and for the most part, the food was fine. I did not like my particular choice, oatmeal as it came cold. I don't know whether it was because of the people we were with, or the restaurant as a whole, but it was really great and we will absolutely be back!3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've been going to MediterraneoWe've been going to Mediterraneo several times a year since it opened. The food was always acceptable, not noteworthy though. We enjoyed the patio by the lake for summer dining, and our visits were usually during good weather.
We went Sat. night and sat in the new patio. Ther was a hicup in the stating of service, as we sat for a while after being seated. A word to the manager brought immediate attention and our waiter Steve (not our originally asssigned waiter). Service was good from there forward.
Apparently they have new staff in the kitchen becuase this was the best meal we've ever had a Mediterraneo, which we now consider a food destination place.
If there current quality stands, we will be going often.2/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
