Our service was spectacular and of course I don’t remember the woman’s name but she was wonderful. As well as the rest of the wait staff ... and the manager(owner?) came to make sure we enjoyed our dinner. So yummy! We had the Doner gyro and the lamb sauté. Their tzatziki sauce was obviously made fresh and was the best I’ve ever had! Would definitely recommend for date night.
Stopped in here for a quick lunch with my wife while we were out in Cincy for the day. Turned out to be the absolutely best Chicken Shish Kebab I have ever tasted and the Hummus was great too.
Not a huge menu, but what they do they do really well!
We had a very nice experience at Cafe Mediterranean. The server was excellent and so was the food.
Excellent service, experienced host and service.
Owner available and friendly professional genuine presentation
I loved the food and atmosphere was impeccable
Fantastic as always!!! This restaurant is consistently excellent on all fronts!
Great food, and attentive service!!
All four of us had different entrees and salads. My moussaka was excellent, as was the large greek salad. Noise level increase significantly when the belly dancing started.
Owner arrived at our table just as we were being seated with a bottle of our favorite wine and two glasses. Service for rest of meal was excellent, food was delicious and arrived hot and nicely plated. A superbly enjoyable evening in all respects.
Excellent food and service.
We had the lamb and appetizer sampler.
Excellent food. Outstanding service! Very friendly staff! One of my favorites!
We had reservations for 7, and were seated immediately on a Saturday evening. Servers were very prompt, taking orders for drinks and then appetizers. Our food came out in a very timely manner, and all at the appropriate temperatures. Quality of the food was very good, though I would have liked the portions for the sides to be a bit larger for the price. My lamb was cooked to order, and was medium rare as requested.
No one had room for dessert, but we will on the next visit.
The CM food is always delicious with nice blend of herbs and spice and great food preparation. Owner and staff always welcoming. Enjoyable dinnertime.
Have had great meals there before, and the manager could not be nicer, but our waiter was terrible, our veal was full of fat and the music was blaring. To be fair, it was NYE and they had a belly dancer, but they turned the music up so loud, every 30 mins she came out, and we couldn’t hear each other think. May try it again because we have had good experiences before, but not for a while
We hadn’t been there since they first opened. They’ve definitely found their stride. Everything was executed perfectly.
It was a very nice restaurant with great service. The food was very good and hope to be back soon.
Excellent food and wonderful service!
As usual, the owner served our table on a quiet Thursday evening. Food as always authentic and excellent. This restaurant can get very loud during crowded times. But if you choose when you go, a wonderful treat.
Second visit as good as the first. Always nice when the Host remembers your order from the previous visit.
Delicious food in comfortable surroundings with a gracious host and great service.
Friendly neighborhood restaurant, great wait staff, nice menu selection and fresh food! Not so noisy that you can't hear conversation so you actually get to visit with your friends as well as have a tasty meal.
We have been here twice and both times enjoyed ourselves immensely. The first time we were waited on by the owner himself. When we returned a few months later, the owner recognized us and stopped by our table to greet us and thank us for coming again.
The food really is excellent here. I have had the lamb adana and moussaka, as well as bites of a few other dishes shared by the rest of our party. The moussaka in particular impressed me so much that I made it at home the next week. The hummus is very good as well, and the desserts are phenomenal in taste and in presentation.
As for the restaurant itself, it has a lovely and intimate feel to it. I especially appreciate that there appear to be acoustic tiles across the ceiling that really cut down on the ambient noise. We were able to converse at our table comfortably, not having to shout or strain to hear each other. On our first visit we enjoyed a fantastic Turkish coffee at the end of our meal, and on our second visit were given some lovely hot tea along with our check.
I felt that the prices were very reasonable, though not the cheapest by any means. If you are looking for a restaurant to celebrate a special occasion and want to try something new, then you won't be disappointed here.
Great food and service. Friendly staff. Would gladly return.
When you travel for business to familiar or frequent locations, it tends to become a challenge to find something new and exciting. Thank goodness for OPEN table!
One of my traveling companions decided they wanted to try Mediterranean cuisine. It didn't take long to find this wonderful place in Hyde Park. AND, I must tell you that you will NOT be disappointed. We were a group of five and each one of us tried something different and each one of our plates was cleared. Only because I can remember what I had, I tried the Red Lentil Soup, which was quite tasty for something I have never tried. For my entree I tried the Lamb Chops that were accompanied by some vegetables and rice. I stripped those lamb chops down to the bone, literally! The vegetable serving may not have been as much as I would have liked, but they were done well, not too crunchy, not overcooked. I heard from others that the rice was good as well. BTW, they did serve some bread and butter, which others enjoyed at the table. I'm personally, a bread lover, but have to watch the waist line.
We ALL thought when dinner was over we couldn't eat a bite more. Well, out came the dessert tray and we ended up with the Pumpkin something or other and another Filo, cheese type of dessert. Only to be followed with Turkish Tea and very good decaffeinated coffee and someone tried an Irish Coffee.
We're coming back soon and you will too!
Absolutely delicious with wonderful service. We can't wait to go back!
Excellent food. Almost all are from Istanbul. These people know what they are doing! The apps were fresh and delicious. The mosakka was wonderful and the Baklava delightful. I ordered 2 crafted cocktails. Very nice. Will definitely return. Took our son and he enjoyed it as well. Had enough left overs for a second dinner!
Best lamb kebab in Cincinnati ! Good service, good selection of wine and decerts
It was our first time there and we definitely plan on returning! Very healthy Mediterranean food, and excellent service.
Cafe Mediterranean is one of our favorites.
Food is fresh and tasty.
Service is great and staff is fun to talk with.
The cold appetizer plate was delicious. The lamb shank fell off the bone. We will be back for sure.
Always delicious and wonderful service. Very pleasant place to share food and
quiet enough to hear conversations. Food is authentic and well prepared.
Owner is so attentive and friendly. Will return.
We ate outside on an absolutely perfect evening. Enjoyed the chardonnay by the glass and hummus appetizer. One of our party had received a type of fish that she hadn't ordered but the staff quickly brought her the correct fish. The bread was wonderful! The béchamel on the moussaka was more like pudding than béchamel but the dish itself was delightful. And parking is quite a problem but worth a short walk from a block or two away. We will return!
First time here. Great selections. Wonderful service. Nice selection of beverages. The owner was very attentive. Felt like a neighborhood gem. All homemade. Turkish flare.
Absolutely delicious! Just started a new diet and found many choices on the menu. Grilled fish steamed veggies, lovely salads lightly dressed with lemon. Had the spectacular swordfish kebab. My companion raved about her lamb shish kebab. Tender and huge portion. We both left happy!
Good menu choices and great service. We always come back.
Always fresh and beautifully presented. Excellent service too.
Always good food and attentive hosts. But it was a beautiful evening so more crowded than usual. That always takes a it away from the experience at no fault to the restaurant.
It was my sons birthday and as he's a vegetarian, this was the perfect venue. He's spent a lot of time in eastern Europe and thought the food was authentic to what he's had Turkey and Bulgaria. The service was fantastic we will go back.
Cafe Mediterranean never disappoints! I'm a foodie and very familiar with Mediterranean food. By far the best, stuffed grape leaves, kabobs, grilled branzino, and appetizer sampler I've had. The owner of Mediterranean Cafe is not only present but actively involved in ensuring that patrons are taken care of and provided with the best service and outstanding food.
The food was absolutely wonderful. Being the middle of the afternoon we got exceptional service and total attention. I highly recommend Café Mediterranean!
