Ansari's Mediterranean Grill Ratings and Reviews
Service was very friendly.
Decor is drab, dark and very worn. A bit depressing. Also, it feels and smells very bar-like.
Food was mixed. Kebabs we're good--flavorful and moist, unlike so many places where they're dry or rubbery. But other items either excessively salty or excessively tangy.
probably won't go back.
We were very disappointed in our experience. We were seated in a booth that had a big dried piece of gyro meat. My husband asked a waitress, who was clearing a table across the way, for something to wipe off the booth, she proceeded to hand us a used cloth napkin, it was absolutely disgusting! The floor was sticky & you could hear that with each step. The dining area had nice music playing but it was very hard to hear over that blaring TV from the bar area. Our food came out & the appetizer was cold in the middle & our entree was comparable to what you'd get in a fast food place. We could not believe it. We love Mediteranean Food & this was close to our home so we hoped it was decent.
We will never go back it was just bad across the board... what a let down.
I made reservations a week prior, to celebrate my anniversary. It was my boyfriends first time to the restaurant, my second. I ordered my appetizer both at tge front desk and once again from my server. The appetizer came after my meal because my server forgot to put it in, and asked if the food runner brought it out. I could tell he forgot because i was a server at one point in my life, and i know servers use that for an excuse. I just would have preferred he be honest. In addition, my server did not attend to my table as much, because he had other tables who had seperate checks, one of which was a party. I know he wanted to provide great service for his table, but i didnt think my dinner would suffer. I usually rip very well and in fact was prepared to give a gracious tip, but did not think it was warranted because of such poor service.
Our server was very nice and friendly, although the service was a little slow that night. Their food is delicious! We all ordered something different and it all tasted great, especially the lamb, which was cooked to perfection. They have a great menu and very nice staff so I will go back again and again.
Food was alright. The service was horrible. I didn't have a utensils. I have to get my own off another table bcuz the waitress took to long to get me one. Also, when I asked for another sauce it took the waitress another hour to get back to my table to check my table only to forget the sauce I originally asked for. Service is horrible. It might took me a while to come back to this place again.
We started with Spanakopita, Spinach Pies. Excellent. We then had a couple of the Mediterranean pasta dishes. Both were excellent. It was a Friday so there was belly dancing too! Families with small kids were even enjoying the ambiance. At the end of the day, in my opinion, this is a "working-person's" Mediterranean restaurant with multi-cultural customers and enjoyable food. Not a lot of glitz and glamour. Great service and a personable wait staff! I'll be back. (Great libation selection too!)
My ten year old daughter and I took my husband there for his birthday last Saturday 2/25/17. We sat in the room where there was the belly dancer. There were several large parties, many of them with little children. The little children ran around the dining room yelling and screaming. The wait staff and management did nothing about this despite several couples dining nearby. The food is tasty and our server was nice. The ambience was unbearable. My husband's lamb chops were over done as well as the eggs. We won't be returning, not worth the $110.00. It's a zoo.🙁
We were on a date, and the food and service were really great. Next time I won't choose a seat by the belly dancer. The music was almost too loud to talk over....but I understand. That was my fault. I would return in a heartbeat....at a table a little further removed from the stage!
We went to Ansari for Valentine's Day. The special complete dinner for two was great and the price was reasonable. Having live music was a plus, as we were not aware that live music was "on the menu". My wife had the Lamb Feast as her entree, I had the Gyros Pasta. We had Saganaki as an appetizer and that probably contributed to neither of us being able to finish the main course. However, we DID enjoy baklava for dessert.
All in all an excellent meal and a very pleasurable experience.
Nice place with a good variety of Mediterranean cuisine. Nice for a change from every day American food. Pretty inexpensive so its a good value. Also has a good beer list with some interesting craft brews. Has belly dancing for something a little different. A little noisy so its kind of hard to have a conversation.
We tried two of the "Tour" menus, Greek and Moroccan. Both menus provided plenty of food and the kabobs contained very good lamb. However, the intensity of the spices used were too much on the Minnesota Nice spectrum. The Moroccan, in particular, was a little flat. We stuck to non-hoppy beers, Stella Artois and Pilsner Urquell which matched the food just fine. Service was attentive and knowledgable. Belly dancing (a pleasant surprise) is the entertainment on the weekends but no live band to accompany her. If you're in the south suburbs, this is a recommended restaurant. If you're closer to the cities, then there are better options for this style of cuisine.
Went there for a pre-concert (SPCO) meal and arrived 20 minutes past our reserved time because of weather conditions. We told the hostess we were a bit pressed for time and the server came immediately and made sure we got away on time. The food was well prepared and presented reasonably well, and one of the beer specials was very good, though a bit pricy. The lentil soup was especially good! What was most impressive was that the service was very quick without sacrificing quality.
Good, authentic Mediterranean food. I found two good options for a vegetarian. Difficult to have a conversation with the music that accompanied the belly dancer. Nice live music that followed the dancer. Décor would keep me from going there for something other than a casual dinner out.
We went due to reviews. Maybe it was just an off night, but sent the lamb back and a few of the items on the appetizer sampler were over cooked and the "medium rare" beef kabob was well done (would have sent it back, but already sent the lamb back). The server was very understanding and the manager came by to see if he could do anything, which we appreciated. But, sorry, we won't be going back.
