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.

You have to get off the beaten path to find this Gem! Mediterrano is definitely worth the trip! It hits all the marks in my book - the food is exquisitely prepared with attention to fresh, authentic ingredients, the presentation is appealing and the service is attentive!

The service and food was great! The spinach pie was the best I've ever had and the chicken Jerusalem was super flavorful and delicious. If you like fruity/sweet sangria, they also give Dom's a run for their money!

The food was delicious and they served a real savory chicken shish-ka-bob tonight. The soup really warmed us up on this 2nd coldest night of the year!

Always a friendly face to serve us at Mediterrano! Thank you.

I have enjoyed Mediterrano a couple times with a girl friend. My boy friend came from Virginia to celebrate my birthday and I knew this is where I wanted him to take me. We had a wonderful day at the DIA then dined here. It is easy to get to from the highway, as we traveled home to Jackson. Our meal was outstanding and service was spot on. Thank you.

Advertised as upscale Mediterranean dining. It’s in a mall, lunchroom vibe, and the food was average. Staff and service were great. Good place for lunch or a decent dinner before heading out. Not “special occasion” place in my opinion even though it’s priced like it it.

Hard to find in the back of a complex off State and Eisenhower but everything was really great...atmosphere was quiet, server was top notch, brussel sprout app. and gnocchi special were just amazing.
Can’t wait to go back.

Would have been a great new years eve dinner choice if we hadn't been seated at the worst table in the house. This despite having made our reservation days prior. People with no reservations (ahead of us in line) were given much nicer tables. This won't be our choice for any future celebrations.

Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed their entree selections. Interesting, innovative recipes, well preseented. Tenderloin medallions with a coffee sauce were wonderful. Service was impeccable. Our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable and never intrusive. She avoided all unnecessary talking, providing helpful explanations of menu items and answering our questions, but avoiding extraneous conversation. A real pro. A delightful evening.

The food at this restaurant has always been good but the service is poor. The servers need more training so that they do not forget about their other tables while chatting with some customers. Also, the video screens detract from the ambience. I don't think it's supposed to be a sports bar.

Overall it was a pleasant experience. I think they still struggle to check people in on the “open table “ reservations!!! I had to remind host 2x that I was on an “open table reservation.”
Finally, my waitress made sure that I was surely checked-in.
Other than that, this is a nice spot to dine!!! JC

Mediterrano has become the restaurant at which we look forward to spending our annual work holiday party and gift exchange. The food and service are always top-notch. The table for 9 people fits our group perfectly and it is slightly away from other diners. So, we feel like we have our own space, while still among the other diners. The staff is also accommodating with providing extra plates, etc. for us to share appetizers and desserts. The food presentation (see pic of some of our desserts) and portions are enough that most of us return to work with 'to go' boxes. We always try to take a group picture and the staff assist us so everyone is in the photo. We HIGHLY recommend Mediterrano!

Our waiter was not a people person. We were there for our office Christmas dinner. We are a medical office, and when he got our drinks, he did not ask the one doctor of his wife what they would like for a drink. Not very good social/people skills.

Server wasn't able to answer basic questions about the ingredients in the food and required multiple visits to the kitchen to find out. Two of the entrees were served with missing food items, and repeated requests had to be made to get the missing food, AFTER the meal was done and we were preparing to leave. To top it off, no discounts were provided on the bill to help atone for the poor service. And these were EXPENSIVE entrees, not 'blue plate specials'.

This restaurant has been very good in the past, so I was very disappointed by the unexpected change in service quality. At least the hostess was very friendly and helpful, and the food quality was still good.

Service was very bad. Never got our appetizer even though I reminded the waiter. I had to go to the bar to get my wife and I a second drink. I don’t believe there were enough people working although he seemed more attentive to the table next us. Either way it wasn’t acceptable.
