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!
Good food, reasonably priced
We went most recently for a special dinner for our daughters 20th birthday. This is the third year in a row that she has requested Cafe Mediterranean and once again, the food and experience were fabulous. Thank you to the staff that always makes us feel very special. Keep up the great work. One of Cincinnati’s best restaurants for sure.
Food and service were excellent. Wide selection of meal choices designed to be as familiar or adventurous as you want. Had hummus and wine to start our meal - great choices. Entrees included swordfish kabob. Flavorful, tender, really, really good. Dessert also excellent. Lots of choices for everyone including vegetarians. Looking forward to going back.
From cocktails to the food and service, everything was outstanding with a personal touch. Thank you for an enjoyable evening.
Fantastic as usual! Fahri, the owner, and his staff are so welcoming and professional. The food is fantastic and always presented in a beautiful manner. Wonderful choices for vegetarians, meat lovers and seafoodies! The bar area is absolutely beautiful, classy, elegant with a simple design. Your 'go to' for a date night out!
Outstanding! Thoughtful, attentive, efficient service and delicious meal — highly recommended.
Everything was fabulous, we will be back again for sure
Lamb sauté and vegetable stew were excellent! Sauce incredible. Good service as well.
Always enjoy CM. Lamb was more fatty than usual and portion sizes seem to have decreased a bit.
Superb food and friendly, attentive service! Maybe your significant other THINKS they don’t love Mediterranean food, but there’s something for everyone, including straight-ahead grilled chicken kabobs, rice, and yummy grilled vegetables. The owner is from Turkey.
AMAZING octopus, bright flavors, perfectly prepared, best hummus in town with house-baked bread, and baklava is a must. The owner of the restaurant personally checks on and insures the satisfaction of each guest, service is OUTSTANDING. Will be back!
Amazing restaurant! The food was incredible. The service was also amazing! Highly recommended
Great evening! Would go back again. Excellent service
Relaxing and delicious food
It was my first time there and I cannot wait to go back. Warm, friendly service and excellent meals will bring us back! My colleague and I both had the salmon, which was delicious. We finished with the baklava, some of the best I've had.
Perfect for a taste of Authentic Mediterranean cuisine. Food was fresh, great presentation and top notch service.
Very nice. Sat outside. Service was prompt, knowledgable and friendly. Wine selection is bit short on Mediterranean choices - heavy on domestic, but the French Chard was very nice. Food was well prepared and freshly made and delicious. We would return.
We had a wonderful Mother’s Day lunch! Everything was too notch and we loved this hidden gem. The service was impeccable, the food amazing - can’t wait to visit again.
We called the restaurant for reservations and they said they were fully booked. We went on open table and booked us a table on the spot. We get there, place half empty. They seat us in a tiny table for 2 in the middle of the passage way to the kitchen. We asked to be seated on different tables. They said all tables reserved. We ordered, ate and done and the tables were still empty. Im terms of food quality, average.
Very busy but it was a Saturday night. Food was very good.
We were there on a saturday night. It was incredibly busy. It took a bit of time to get our food, but it was well worth the wait. Very good stuff.
Enjoyed our meal. We always do!! The food is great and the menu has many offerings. We've tried most of the things on the menu and have never been disappointed. We are always treated like family. We highly recommend this excellent restaurant.
Wasn't sure what to expect ad we had never been to this restaurant, but we were surprised. The food was amazing, service was incredible, and the outdoor seating was perfect. Definitely a place to visit again.
Our first time out for dinner in 14 months and an anniversary to boot. Dinner was as perfect as we remember from our last visit - 14 months ago.
The lamb adona was perfect and the new side salad of onions and sumac was a tatsy accompaniment.
Had a wonderful dinner with my wife. Enjoyed the eggplant. Very tasty. Plenty to eat.
Great place! Can’t wait to return!!
Really cute place. The service was great. Everyone worked hard to make the experience comfortable. The food was amazing. The only issue I had was very poor parking availability.
First time here. Food and service were great, glad we found it. Ate outside and it’s on a pretty busy street but a great experience.
One of our family favorites! Always great food, service and entree suggestions. Big surprise, my son ordered the Fish kabob and it was excellent! have never had anything but a great meal here!
We started off with the hummus. It was creamy and served with bread. The bread was excellent and would have been good by itself! I have the lamb donar gyro. It was served with roasted green beans. carrots and rice. The portions were enough to be shared. My daughter had the swordfish. The Owner (we think) said it was their specialty. It was so good! The fish was cooked perfectly and the portion size was enough to share. The service was good. We ate outside and my only complaint would be it is located on a busy street so the noise level was high. Next time, we will try eating indoors!
Great meal, outstanding service from Riza, acknowledgement that we were celebrating my brother's birthday with a complimentary dessert, and our favorite wine arriving at the table without even asking. We can always count on Cafe Mediterranean to provide a memorable dining experience. We highly recommend this fine restaurant.
Absolutely top notch. The owner is a gem. We will be back.
Great service, food, and atmosphere
