LOVE this restaurant for a small group. It's possible to actually HEAR each other. We had a magnificent waiter (whose name I forget but he was returning to Greece soon) who was exceptional in every way w we I thought being too casual. Food excellent, of course. Everyone happy. Thank you!

Service could have been prompt. Only 2 people waiting 6 tables... had to wait extra. I don’t blame them though cuz of COVID. On a normal day aka without COVID, I would have rated them with a 1 star for service

Great food, excellent service. First time trying the paella. Perfectly cooked and gorgeous service in a paella pan. Only complaint is that the rice is exceptionally salty for my taste. Each of the different types of fish was cooked perfectly. Always love the appetizer with three gorgeous dips and the pear/walnut/Gorgonzola salad.

As usual, Mediterrao delivered a great dining experience from first to last. We went for the tomato bisque which took tomato to a higher level, heightened with a hint of cayane and umami. The Tricolore salad is a home run both for its variety of fresh flavorful greens and citrus dressing. The special we opted for was a Greek inspired Veal Scalopini, the perfectly cooked and tender veal complemented by a savory sauce influenced by olives and peppers. The Super Tuscan wine knocked it out of the park. Paige, our wonderful server, helped make the entire experience an absolute delight. We have never had a less than excellent experience here, and look forward to the next time, very soon!

Excellent service, elegant & spacious ambiance, and an inspired focused menu are but a few reasons to frequent this wonderful dining establishment. After several visits we have always found the ingredients to be fresh, the preparation superlative, resulting in beautifully executed and presented dishes that are delicious. As serious wine aficionados, the wine list is of paramount importance, and Mediterrano delivers there as well, and worth seeking out. From $30 on up, there are numerous selections from around the world that a wine lover will appreciate. Very happy to return here often!

How can you not know that the restaurant was closed. My date and I both drove 45 miles to get there because you accepted our reservation. Terrible service!

I live in Ohio and don't stay up on Michigan's Covid rules and simply assumed that either the dining restrictions had be lifted or Ann Arbor was allowed.

I'm not sure I will continue to use your service which I had thought was pretty good. This was an unacceptable result. I'll probably just call restaurants in the future and do it the old fashioned way.

You should really be more on the ball!

First time visiting Mediterrano but will definitely go back. The menu has many unique options. The server let us take our time choosing and was very attentive without being pushy. The food was delicious. The small plates can be shared for a fabulous dinner but we went ahead and ordered entrees also. Everything tasted wonderful and The presentation was beautiful.

It was date night, and I wanted to treat my Love to a different place with an interesting and diverse menu. Mediterrano fit the bill! She was immediately impressed with the menu (she is persneckity) and the alcohol selections. Our server was very attentive and friendly too.
The appetizers came out and smelled and tasted so good. We actually wanted to try ALL of them but figured we would make another trip to A2 for the others. The potato thing that came with the warm bread was really the only disappointment but that comes instead of butter and was underwhelming at best.
We had the calamari, bacon wrapped dates, mussels, baked feta, crispy brussel sprouts, scallops and salmon fettuccine.
We judge every restaurant by their calamari and scallops, and both dishes were cooked to perfection. All of our food was tasty, flavorful and nuanced in subtle flavors we didnt expect. Definitely made our list of new favourite spots.

Puzzled at menu change. We loved the “old” minestrone soup—not the new one. Pear salad is not grilled anymore. Also, old Brick Chicken was better (beans and sausage added? Why?), and old, old, Mediterrano Chicken not offered anymore. Salmon (beans, potatoes) is very oily. We would like lighter chicken/fish dishes. We adore this restaurant and staff, but struggle with the menu.

Excellent food, interesting wine list, great service, easy parking, and safe COVID practices! What else could you want? Specifically, the menu has authentic Mediterranean recipes that are expertly carried out. Many small plate options; we specifically love the dates, and the halloumi small plates. Salads are interesting; we endorse the gorgonzola pear as it is fresh and flavorful. Unique entree' options include several 2-person paellas that are very fun to share.
