Mediterranean | Lawrence, Lawrence

The food and service was outstanding. Great value for quality, local, thoughtful food. Great place for an intimate dinner for two, or a group setting. The space is a little loud when it gets busy, but other than that the atmosphere is incredible. The old stone building really creates the ambiance that a Mediterranean style restaurant should have.

She constantly checked on me during my meal to see if I needed anything and offered a complimentary dessert when the Chef gave me the wrong size fish serving. Outside the food being delicious, my waitress was very genuine, receptive and smiled the whole time during her service to me. It made for a pleasant evening. More
