Excellent Mediterranean food! Excellent flavors and selections. Friendly warm atmosphere.
Always perfect. Service food every time.
Absolutely great place.
Very enjoyable evening. Owner very helpful and full of information. Food was delicious. Will go back.
We ate here a few years ago,loved it,not sure what took us so long to come back,we will definitely return!
Excellent meal and service. I have been to this restaurant twice in the past few months. Both times the food and service have been consistent. We will definitely be back!
You will always get a wonderful meal at Cafe Mediterranean!
As always everything was terrific. Ozdil and his staff do a great job!
Busier this evening than we've seen in a long time. Great!! We are elated that others have discovered this wonderful restaurant. The noise level was a little livelier than normal, but that could be expected with the good crowd.
As always, we were welcomed with open arms, and I really do not feel that our service suffered from the large crowd. And, the food was as good as we've come to expect. Delicious and comforting Mediterranean cuisine.
One of our favorite restaurants in Cincinnati, and one which we keep coming back to over and over again.
Great food and service!
Food was fresh and very, very delicious. Service was excellent and staff very friendly. Lovely restaurant for a relaxing and outstanding mediterranean meal.
Authentic Turkish food with great service! You can’t go wrong here, everything we had was amazing and you have to try the desserts as well 10/10. We felt like we were back in Turkey!
Hummus was delicious. The lamb shish is always my favorite and the Kavaklidere wine pairs great with it. Baklava is a must! Great service from Ali.
The food was lovely, great flavors. Nice intimate place for a friend luncheon.
The service as well as the food were absolutely wonderful.
Beautiful night with great food and great service
This Turkish restaurant excels in its small dishes (appetizers) — I love to make an entire meal of these! The salads are wonderful — add some protein and you will have a meal. They have a full bar and the wines are delightful!
Food was delicious. Service was very friendly but didn't check in - I think they were short on staff.
The food was outstanding, as always! Ali and Aida were attentive and personable. We had a beautiful evening dining al fresco. We did miss seeing Fahri, but his crew did a wonderful job in his absence!!
Comfortable outdoor seating, delicious food, very professional service.
Great date night place! The food was amazing (lamb chops and lamb sauté), the service was AWESOME, and we will absolutely be back!
Great waitstaff and yummy food. The pumpkin dessert was fabulous!
Fabulous dinner at Cafe Mediterranean.! Service was friendly, efficient, helpful and accommodating. The food was absolutely delicious. A gem of a place!
Great food. The owner greeted us which was a nice touch. I took 2 young men who had never been and they loved it!!
First time at Cafe Mediterranean and it was outstanding. My husband and I went with our daughter. From the greating at the door to when we left we were treated like we had been coming there for years. The food was delicious! We sat outside and and the could not had asked for a more wonderful night. Can't wait to go back!
Cafe Mediterranean is a favorite of ours. The service is always excellent, the menu is varied, and we find their Turkish wines the perfect complement to anything we order. This particular evening we had one small glitch...it seemed like someone added an extra touch of spice to both of our dishes. They just didn't quite taste as we remembered from the past. Things like this can happen. We've been dining at the restaurant for years and years. Our first complaint ever! It won't keep us from coming back. The staff always treat us like family and one small glitch over the years of perfect dining experiences can certainly be forgiven. We definitely recommend this fine Mediterranean restaurant.
Wonderful food and service !
I recommended this restaurant 100%
The owner is always there making sure that everything is right
This was the first of many times we plan to eat here! Great food,service, etc. a pleasure to eat here!
We were asked to come a bit early for outdoor seating and we were able to get a nice table. Owners and staff has always been very accommodating (from their Blue Ash days!) and it’s great sitting outside on a beautiful evening. Sampler appetizer was delicious and enjoyed by all. Lamb kebabs were devoured and my vegetable tower was as pretty as it was delicious. Friend did not enjoy falafel, but loved lentil soup. Overall, a lovely get together.
Amazing restaurant. The owner came up and spoke to us and was so kind and welcoming. Service was the best I have experienced in a very long time! I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. Please support this place!
Cafe Mediterranean is one of my favorite go-to restaurants. Perfect every time!
Excellent food and service.
This was our first visit here that was disappointing. The food, as always, was delicious. However we had some issues with service. We had a reservation that we were on time for, but were at first asked to sit at a 2 person table that would have virtually put us in another group's lap! I requested outside to prevent this, even though it was a bit warm. It took some time for our server to come to the table. I asked to substitute an item in the appetizer combo (something I have done before) and was told it wasn't allowed. I went ahead and ordered it anyway, and we ordered our entrees and drinks. We received our drinks then didn't see our server for quite a while. Then someone (not our server) brought out our entrees. I asked about the appetizer and got a shrug. I flagged down another woman who tends to help with hostessing an asked for our appetizer, and she took care of it. However, it arrived without bread, which I had to ask for. When we did see our server again, he said nothing about the appetizer being forgotten. That was when we had been finished eating for quite a while and needed a box. He asked if wanted some baklava, and I asked what else they had for dessert. He said chocolate pudding and something that I can't remember. On previous visits we had the opportunity to look at a dessert tray with far more than 3 options! We declined dessert and I asked for some Turkish tea. He next brought out 2 dessert plates. I had to flag him down to ask about them as we had just ordered tea. He had apparently forgotten that we did not order dessert.
We have had really good experiences at Cafe Mediterranean, and we hope that this was just an off night for them.
We love the fresh amazing dishes and the kind and attentive service!
Fresh and tasty food
I ordered the lamb sauté. It was amazingly seasoned and tasted wonderful. The hummus was tasty too! Great Mediterranean selection!
As always, Fahri and his staff provide a wonderful dining experience. We were there to celebrate two birthdays and had a great dinner and evening. Love the Cafe Med salad, the Kebabs are outstanding and the Baklava is delicious! Great menu with plenty of variety for all kinds of appetites. Generous portions and a very reasonable price.
Met a friend there. Since this restaurant is already a favorite of both of us, we felt it was the ideal location to meet up and catch up. The food was delicious, as always. A white Turkish wine was the perfect accompaniment to both of our entrees. The wait staff paced our meal and we never felt rushed. Always service with a smile. I highly recommend this fine dining establishment. You won't be disappointed.
Ate outside. Traffic noise tolerable. Waitress Maria was knowledgeable, service was great compared to other restaurants these days
Excellent food and service!
