Mediterra Ratings and Reviews
We were a group of 5 who ordered “family style”, got a bunch of food and tried most of their cocktails. As the food was brought out from soups, appetizers, entrees and finally deserts, we could believe the flavors ...everything was so amazingly tasty. While it was a bit pricey (we did get a lot of drinks) I can’t wait to go back.
We dine frequently at Mediterra and this Valentines Day dinner proved to be as delicious as usual. The ambience is warm and friendly and the staff friendly and accommodating to our requests. The special menu offered many options and we opted for the wine pairing which were wonderful wines at a very reasonable price. All in all a great dining experience.
we go to Mediterra often and its always good.. except for this time. Sat at the high top tables
took forever to get any service, water...even menus.. had to ask for everything. the waiter forgot one of our entree orders so we sat waiting for an hour until we asked where the food was.. he said he got confused!!! so we left the restaurant.. sorry that didn't work for us.. next time going to sit at a regular table.
Very disappointed. Tunanichoise salad
was on the menu online. We were there Sunday at 2:30. Went specially for the above salad. We’re told when we ordered that it was only available during the week. Said they had no tuna!! Should say so on line. Also, servers reaching across in front of you when clearing dishes. Not professional!
Mediterra was excellent, as always. The food is very good, the atmosphere warm and lively, and the service was outstanding. We were late for our reservation and had concert tickets. We were served so quickly I couldn't believe it; and we didn't even tell them we were short on time.
For a quiet romantic dinner, my first choice is Eno Terra. But for a small group celebration in a casual fun atmosphere, Mediterra is as good as it gets.
We were a group of six friends who visit with each other once or twice a year. The waitress quickly realized that we would want to be there for a while, and she communicated that she was not going to try to rush us out. We appreciated that, and tried to reflect that in her tip. She was professional, helpful, welcoming.
Food here is consistent and reasonably priced. It's a great brunch/lunch option.
My husband and I had dinner at Mediterra before a theatre performance. Loved it! Food, service, wine all great. I had the octopus appetizer - was grilled and seasoned to perfection. My husband enjoyed the salmon and I the rigatoni with wild boar sausage - so good! The service was attentive and the atmosphere lively but not too loud. Will definitely return and recommend to friends.
We dined at Mediterra for my wife's birthday. The atmosphere was perfect. Service was excellent. We enjoyed appetizers and entrees from the menu. Two of us shared the paella, which was fantastic. Everyone vaporized their entrees. We will definitely go again.
Our group goes every year for New Year's Eve. The service was excellent particularly given it's a hectic night as well as late in the evening. Portions were small but perfect given the numbers of courses. My husband and I also dine there throughout the year and enjoy the bar and small plates.
Food was good, service was good.
We ordered a lovely appetizer of hummus and pita, which was delicious. However...only 1 1/2 pitas, quartered??? Really???
We requested a bit more pita as we had quite a lot of hummus left. We were informed that it would be an additional $2. While I certainly could afford to pay that, I don't like feeling tickled and dimed to death. The restaurant should serve adequate pita with the hummus, or not charge for additional to finish the pita with. Should we have finished the hummus with spoons???
Other than that annoying situation, it was a nice lunch. I would go back, but would look a little more closely at the value--perhaps there are other things that would be similar.
