I always enjoy the ambiance at Mandaloun, with a pleasant golden glow to the room, and a view to the kitchen with the open oven. The menu is varied, and I've never been disappointed with my choice. This time, I had the moussaka, which is the best I've ever had !

Very tasty Middle Eastern and Med foods. Very generous portions. Truly professional service at the bar and on the dining floor from a crew of Parisians. Reasonable prices. I'll be back for sure.

We were going to the theater very nearby and had an excellent leisurely dinner. The waitress was super. Food great. We'd even go for the 45 minute drive from the city to go again!

Great drinks- super unique and definitely worth trying. DO NOT ORDER THE GRILLED ARTICHOKE. They were not cooked properly and lacked in flavor. The service was amazing and the staff was very kind. We were quick to receive our dishes and the portions were quite big. The quality of the food was great- healthy. The hummus lacked flavor and the zaatar was a bit dry (might be a personal preference though). The fungi pizza is great but you have to like pita pizzas to enjoy this type of pizza. Overall the experience was pleasant but I don't know if I would come back since it lacked in vegetarian options.

We introduced some fiends to this restaurant the night we went to dinnet. Very authentic Eastern Mediterranean food plus items inspired by that area. Small plates or full dinners. The panchetta wrapped dates and the calamari are great. Their wood burning oven makes for great pizzas, chicken and fish. Their Moscow Mule is the best we ever had.

The staff were very attentive and helpful with menu and wine selections. The octopus appetizer was spot on perfect. Served on a perfectly seasoned bed of arugula. I could eat it everyday. Portions are large. The roasted chicken is a must according to my chef daughter. Appetizer sampler was enjoyed by everyone and all of us gave it two thumbs up.

Took friends (foodies) from out of town. They picked a Mediterranean restaurant in San Francisco to try. I showed them Mandaloun's website and menu and convinced them to give it a try. We shared four appetizers, which were all delicious. We all loved our entrees. We took the waitress' suggestion on which two desserts to share and were not disappointed! The service was great.

I've been in a few times for lunch as I work nearby and love the place.

A business meal with a vendor and they were very impressed with the ambiance and how great the food taste. They enjoyed the food, especially the sampler appetizer. If you want to impress out of towners and showcase all that is great about Redwood City, take them here!

My sister and I are not familiar with Redwood City but found ourselves there with an opportunity to catch up over dinner. We decided on a few glasses of wine and several appetizers to share. $70 total.
The ahi was delicious, our favorite in fact. We also got the sampler with loads of dips. The banbganoush was great, as was the humus. Not crazy about the taziki or whatever the white dip was- not quite sure what it was trying to be.
Lastly we had the grilled artichokes which still had the fuzzy centers in. Those need to be removed before serving! The artichoke needed more seasoning - lemon and salt please- and more cooking. They weren't soft enough.
Overall the food wasn't as good as expected, but it's a lovely atmosphere and terrific service. We didn't have anything beyond the appetizers so I will give this place another try when I can explore the menu more.

Our waitress easily accommodated our request to move farther away from a large group which came in after we did. My wife's ribs needed a darker sauce, but my souvlaki was superb. Dessert was home-made and also noteworthy. The wine list included a good zin at a modest price.

We loved the food, the interiors and the service. We all ordered different dishes and each one was delicious! The restaurant is beautiful but it is a little noisy. Might not be the best place if you want intimate conversation. If only they could put a few carpets around to absorb sound it would be PERFECT!

Dinner with friends after a movie. I had the souvlaki. It was tough as a boot. Did not enjoy it at all. Friends had lamb shank and boneless pork ribs and were quite satisfied. Maybe I just chose the wrong menu item. Tiramisu dessert was excellent, but bread pudding was dry and tough. Would not recommend. Very nice place and service was prompt and attentive.

We liked Mandaloun very much. It was the second time we'd been there, and it did not disappoint. The food and service were excellent and the restaurant was spacious and not too noisy.
Unfortunately, we were seated near the door on a very cold night, so be sure to avoid that kind of experience.
Overall, we had a very good experience and enjoyed the restaurant a lot.

This place is one if my favorites just because the food is amazing! The ambiance is beautiful and classic but I can't get over how the tuna tartar is the best I've ever had. Though I usually go with the lamb, this time I went with their special steamed salmon with capers and my God! That salmon was perfect ! So juicy and that's hard to day about a salmon cause it's so easily overcooked! The only thing I wish they would change out is the sides that come with the salmon. Some orzo rice and spinach / roasted tomato would of been better than the one they had on there. But I still love the salmon! AMAZING

A small group of us decided to have dinner here after a movie on New Year's Eve. The service was a little slow at times but overall the atmosphere and food were enjoyable. The menu is a nice change from the usual Italian or bar food choices in the areas.

It was good but as a vegan, the options are limited. I ended up with bread made a variety of ways with hummus and salad. The quality was not as good as the fast casual place nearby. The seafood options looked good though.

I LOVE coming to Mandaloun either before or after a show at The Fox 2 blocks away! The food and service are exquisite as is the atmosphere and environment. Always dependably delightful with MANY choices of dishes to select from. A true Mediterranean gem in the heart of Redwood City. GO!
