Mediterranean
Centrally located among the city’s hotels, The University of Michigan's south campus, and Briarwood Mall, Mediterrano has been one of Ann Arbor’s premier restaurants for over a decade. Mediterrano is walking distance to an array of hotels including The Four Points by Sheraton, Fairfield Inn, Courtyard by Marriott, and Kensington Court. Using only the freshest and most flavorful ingredients, the innovative kitchen staff expertly prepares tantalizing dishes from each of the 14 countries on the Mediterranean coast. Start off with everyone’s favorite sampler of Hummus, Satziki, and Tapenade before you dive into the fabulous Chicken Jerusalem. Make sure to save room for the traditional home made Baklava and Frutti Di Basco! The attentive and highly trained wait staff serve your every need. Refined, while comfortable, Mediterrano is the perfect venue for business luncheons, family celebrations, friendly get-togethers or a romantic evening for two.

Began coming right after it opened, but stopped coming because I retired. I was pleasantly surprised.
They have a really nice lunch menu. Food was well-prepared, server was very attentive. Had a very pleasant time. I plan to became a regular again.

Mediterrano is always great — a favorite — excellent food and service and reasonable priced. We like the interior update and we are always please that the noise level is such and we can carry on a conversation without raising our voices.

We never got in to dine at Mediterrano. Open Table took our reservation and then sent us a confirmation the day before we were to eat there. Unfortunately, the restaurant was closed for remodeling. The manager was distraught and let me know that Open Table was informed of the temporary closure, but they still took my reservation. I don't believe Mediterrano is to blame. However, we have dined there before and the restaurant is outstanding and I recommend it to anyone wishing an outstanding dining experience.

As always Mediterrano delivered great food & service. We were seated next to a large party but we had no problem hearing each other in our spacious booth, & we were totally unrushed, even after 3 hours. Our friends loved their filet mignons & the haloumi appetizer we introduced them to, one of our favorites. My salmon & my husband’s paella were perfect as was the tiramisu we all shared.

During the last visit to Ann Arbor we ate at Mediterrano twice. Simply put, the restaurant has become our go to place in Ann Arbor. It is by far the best place in town to have a wonderfully prepared Mediterranean meal served by the best wait staff anywhere.

Enjoyed food and and ambience, as usual, but service was abysmal. Waiter oblivious to our requests and needs, ie breadnon table, drinks, etc, and it took long time to get his attention each time. Manager tried to rectify when she realized what was happening. We thought he might be on drugs as whenever we would ask for a glass of wine, etc he would say yes and then disappear. Another request: We always come for Morhers Day Brunch and would love the addition of bagels.thanks for the opp to speak! Roni Moncur

The food was well prepared and delicious. I had the scallops and they were tender with a wonderful flavor that neither was overwhelming or boring. My three dining companions also thought their food was well prepared and delicious. And we shared an amazing melt in your mouth chocolate desert - to die for! The wait staff was friendly, timely and gracious. And it wasn't TOO noisy that it would interfere with our ability to enjoy our social conversation.

We dined the day after Mother's day, so they were a little short staffed, and apologized for the slower service. However, we were not in a hurry. The food was very good from the starters to dessert.

It seems Mediterrano quality really went down. We have been there for
Mother’s Day or Easter brunch for several
Years but have been disappointed lately. The buffet was good but not what it used to be unfortunately.

Wonderful as always with excellent service and quiet enough so that the 4 of us could hear one another without having to shout.
The salmon was cooked exactly as I love it with very interesting accompaniments, & the paella was so generous that it was more than enough for 2.

Mediterrano's is a lovely place to have dinner and one of the few places in Ann Arbor with low noise level, conducive to good conversation. The food is excellent. If you want to get out of your comfort zone try the sardine appetizer: just outstanding as are the scallops and the rack of lamb. The branzino was a bit dry but still very good. The tiramisu was OK. It lacked some of the advertised brandy but the lemon torte was excellent.
