    Great food, great service and beautiful restaurant. We had the Burrata Mozzarella and Papas Bravas for apps. The Paella for two as our entree. And the Butterscotch Budino for dessert. Everything was delicious! Based on my experience, I would definitively recommend to my friends. I hope to be back soon.

    We sat Outside and asked for a heater. There were two heaters at the tables on either side of us but there were no additional heaters. We eventually switched to one of the tables next to us when that party departed. The service was very good and helpful.

    We were more disappointed than usual in Mediterra than our multiple previous visits. Perhaps we were more sensitive as it was our wedding anniversary and due to commitments we were relegated for lunch and maybe because it was a Monday . It was sunny cool day so we sat outside. But Mainly because of the very limited selection on the menu ( we did not want a burger or the fluke ) we ended up getting a salad, which was tasty with the beautifully cooked salmon, but perhaps not quite what we were hoping for on our anniversary. The prosciutto board was 4 large handsome pieces of 24 month aged prosciutto with toast and a tomato relish so that cheered us up- and the dessert -a decadent flourless chocolate cake with the substituted coconut sorbet, due to lactose intolerance also helped. Our young server was eager and willing but she forgot to bring tea with dessert- until we reminded her. However, we will be back hoping that they will be back to their usual number of menu items.

    I had originally booked my reservation outside and then changed my mind and wanted it inside. I made a call to the restaurant and they were able to make this change for me when I called. When we arrived for our reservation we were escorted outside and I told them that I made changes and I also got an email confirmation. I was told there was nothing they could do about this and offered me the outside table or a high top table. We didn't like the idea of eating on a high top table as this was a special occasion dinner for us so opted for outside as we really didn't have an option. Felt a little disappointed that this happened.

    Reliably outstanding food and service. Just enough culinary innovation to make it interesting, but not so outside the norm that you wonder what you’re eating. The flavor combinations are outstanding, and portion sizes are generous, but not over the top. Would definitely recommend.

    Drinks were all great…my margarita was outstanding! Small plates, Spanish potatoes and a sausage dish were delicious! They were ample size for 4-people to share while drinking, prior to dinner. The eggplant lasagna without noodles was excellent and perfect for this vegetarian. Others had the enormous pork chop and the paella-for-two, everyone raved about their meal. There appeared to be ample staff waiting tables, busing, and at the reservation booth. However, refills on water and alcohol were not regularly checked and needed verbal requests. We also had Caesar, mediocre at best— too much pepper.

    We go to Mediterra often. It’s always a nice experience. Saturday lunch our server ruined the lunch. I had invited a friend in her 80’s visiting from India and her daughter. They drove from nyc for the lunch at mediterra. The server had an attitude of I couldn’t care less while taking our order, it was really strange. I asked if they had a dish I’d had before; she stabbed at the menu, ‘whatever is on here’ My elderly friend asked how the monkfish is prepared. Server said I don’t know. I said could you find out, is it grilled, fried baked? She shrugged her shoulders and said look so you want it? This went on throughout the entire meal. I was given the wrong wine, I told her she shrugged. I just drank it I didn’t want a fuss in front of my friends but it was terrible- two deserts arrived and the other two came when we had already finished deciding to just share as when we waved at her she raised a finger but never came. We enjoyed the food but this server ruined our get together with her attitude and poor service.
