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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
