Mediterraneo Kitchen and Bar Ratings and Reviews
I actually went the Mediterraneo on a first date. She had never had tapas before, so I thought it would be a perfect blend of classy and casual. The servers were extremely helpful in suggesting about a half dozen different dishes which were all delicious. The wine list was extensive and the house bourbon was very smooth. It definitely the perfect start to what ended up being a great night!
From time-to-time we take our dog and mountain bikes to the beach and ride for miles on LA's "boardwalk". Aside for an occasional pitstop "The Shack" in Manhattan Beach, Mediterraneo is by far our favourite roll-up destination. Outdoor seating right off the Hermosa Beach Pier -- lotta action in a pure California icon setting. Great tapas and wine spot, local beers and a great, friendly staff. Park the dog just outside the dining area, he/she won't get lonely.
Mediterraneo -- more like Meh-deterraneo. Despite some decent reviews, this place was disappointing. Though the beer selection was great and our waitperson was quite sweet, the other staff and the food were disappointing. From the moment we arrived, when the maitre d' couldn't find our Open table reservation and then magically had a table to the waiter who dropped our food off and then failed to clear our empty plates to the late arrival of our drinks (even though she let us try a few different beers, they arrived after quite a delay and we didn't end with our beer until 3/4 of the way through our meal) it was a disappointment. The food sounded interesting but was virtually tasteless -- as if something was missing from each dish. You could probably do better in Hermosa Beach.
I was VERY disappointed that I had made my reservation early ans was seated inside, rather than outside. Apparently, one must designate a desire to sit outside when reserving a table. Nothing provides that directive however, and all unspecified reservations are automatically pushed indoors to the noisy bar areas. Not happy. Good food.
He food is great, as always. The vodka menu is ridiculous, so we just have wine. And the service is awful. It takes 20 minutes of empty glasses and a search of the restaurant to find your server. An crappy spot if you want a quick bite..
Went for Valentine's Day. Didn't really recognize that this is a tapas bar. The place was not as busy as you would expect for Valentine's Day. We found it a bit pricey to make a full meal out of the occasion. Service was marginal. We were frequently looking for our server. The manager was busy bussing tables. Did not find it warm and welcoming. We ate and drank but not excessively for $$$. We may go back for happy hour that we have been told is 2 for 1 but we won't be rushing back.
We were greeted by the restaurant GM. We chatted with our server and she mentioned they were short-staffed, however, if that were the case, you couldn't tell as they were attentive. The food was great and I am still dreaming about the cheese-stuffed dates wrapped in prosciutto. They had some special menu options for Valentine's Day, from which we enjoyed the risotto-stuffed chicken. All the food was great! Also, if you bring a bottle of wine from Uncorked (wine shop up Pier Avenue) they do not assess a corkage fee.
The food and service have been consistently great for a long period of time. The menu has its own unique style, without being being pretentious and overly creative. They have an outstanding variety of tapas, which makes it a great place to share food with a significant other, or a group of friends. Lastly, they offer a great selection of beers and wine, and a really cool happy hour that I really recommend.
We've come here for years. The food is always tasty & more filling than you'd expect. The service is good - sometimes more friendly than other times but always prompt & professional. The people watching is prime, especially on the weekend. Make a reservation!
