    Food was very well prepared and quite tasty. Our server was fantastic and very sweet. Would like to think the wine pourings could be a tad more generous considering the price per glass. A shame something can’t be done about the noise level.

    Not our first time for a late lunch/ and belated birthday celebration for one of us. The salmon tartare as an appetizer was delicious as was the macaroni pasta. The rare Med Burger was as ordered. Malbec wine from Mendoza region of Argentina coupled with a Barolo from the Piedmonte from Italy hit the spot. Will be back long before the next birthday. The service matched the food and drink. A great experience. M&M

    My wife and I have been coming to Mediterra for lunch over many years and we have never been disappointed. Yesterday was the first tine I had to return my first course (leak and potato soup) as being way too salty. Our usual order of NJ green salad was skimpy and consisted of basic green lettuce (not even of the usual mesclun mix type). Pasta with mushroom ragou was still very good. All in all this was a pleasant experience and we will return, of course. I just hope to see Mediterra return to their traditional quality.

    This was a poor experience! We made an advance reservation but when we arrived, we were seated in the worst possible spot in the middle of the way to the restroom with a narrow walkway and everyone passing by was hitting my chair. I asked to be moved and was told to move to another chair which did not help because the table was in the middle. The market bowl was all cold as if taken out of a fridge. Then we were charged for cake and drinks we did not order. When I asked to fix, they charged the same amount again, then apologized and charged the right amount. As of now, all three amounts are still on my credit card!

    Nice little spot in the heart of Princeton. It was nicely decorated for the holidays. The food was delicious. We started with the artesian cheese board and the fried broccoli. Both were very tasty. Really enjoyed the fried broccoli and sauce it was served on I ordered the pastaless lasagna. OMG, so good. It was very flavorful and cheesy. Would definitely order it again. My husband ordered the tagliatelle with Tuscan boar sauce It was also very flavorful. He was happy with his dish.

    We met a lone friend on the way to the restaurant and they accommodated us by allowing 5 to sit at a table for 4. Our waiter then proceeded to give very quick and efficient service. Everyone enjoyed their meals and we even had time for some excellent dessert before pushing off to the hockey game.
