Refined, while comfortable, Mediterrano is the perfect venue for business luncheons, family celebrations, friendly get-togethers or a romantic evening for two.

I always enjoy myself here. A varied menu with great choices for just about anyone. Nice ambiance great for an intimate dinner, but a large group would not feel out of place. I was here on a football Saturday night, but service was very good, with apologies for even the shortest delay.

We have visited Mediterrano many times and always been highly satisfied with their food. So perhaps last night’s dinner is an outlier and not representative of their overall quality of food. Our appetizer of hummus, olive tapenade, and artichokes was very good as were my scallops as my entree. The problem was with my husband’s Chicken Jerusalem. The chicken was so tough and dry he could hardly cut it. We sent it back and then received an “ok” piece of chicken. We were very disappointed. The manager did come over and apologize and the service was excellent. But we were quite disappointed in my husband’s entree. We may go back to this restaurant, but it will be a while!

Food was good, service was terrible with a 20 % gratuity automatically added to our party of 6. We waited 20 minutes after sitting down for our drink order and another 10” for the waitress to come back with part of the order and to only partially answer our questions. This was a Wednesday night and the place was not overly crowded.
Expensive meal for a casual experience.

Food was ok, not worth it when taking the price into consideration. The gambas al ajillo had no resemblance to the actual dish, the presentation was lacking, but the taste was ok. The meatballs (keftades if I remember correctly) were good. The soup was great but felt way more Latin American than Mediterranean. The linguini with sea food was too small for the price, and while the taste was there, the execution left a lot to be desired. The pasta itself was very bland.
The service was incredible though, everyone was very nice, thoughtful and attentive. Specially Celia.

My husband, son and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary. This proved to be the perfect spot for us. It was different. It was hard to select just one entree from the menu. Very enticing menu. I appreciated the presentation on the plate. Lately I have been noticing that food comes on a plate that seems too large and it is just sliding around the dish. All of us had something different, fish, pasta and salads. We splurged and ordered dessert also. We were celebrating after all! Very good and just the right size. Hope to return soon.

I had dinner with a friend recently at Mediterrano, and as always it was superb! Our server, Diana, was very attentive. The food was fantastic— well prepared, with the perfect blend of spices and flavors. This is one of my favorite Ann Arbor spots; the free parking is a bonus. If you haven’t tried Mediterrano yet, do so, you won’t be disappointed.

Been coming to this restaurant for almost a year now and it's gone downhill in a big way. Not sure if it's new management, but I heard a new chef. Menu and food were all seemingly tweaked, and not for the better. Our waiter introduced himself and proceeded to say it was his first day. He didn't clarify if he meant at this restaurant or as a waiter. Not a good experience. Seabass branzino was dry and unflavorable. Bacon wrapped dates were overdone and seemed like they were cooked last week.

Dinner this time and we were not disappointed. First of all, the bread and addictive spread were almost worth going to Mediterraneo, but the rest of the meal was equally as good. My brancino was perfectly sautéed and SO good with the green beans and crunchy quinoa cake. Shamelessly, I ate every single bite. My husband enjoyed his half rack of lamb with vegetables and an incredible hummus side. It was an outstanding meal. This could be one of our favorite restaurants in Ann Arbor. Lovely!

My wife and I have been coming to Mediterrano for years and it's always been decent, if not a bit above average in quality and service. The service on this occasion was really poor. It may have been because they were understaffed, but the server (nor the manager who clearly saw us waiting multiple times) did nothing to acknowledge how long we waited for her and how many times she forgot things. The food, when delivered, was ok, but also seemed to be below their usual quality.

We were four and decided to eat small plates for dinners. The bacon with dates which is an all time favorite disappointed as the bacon was undercooked and fatty. This is not typical. The spanokopita, octopus and brussel sprouts were excellent. We enjoyed ourselves immensely. We would have preferred that they serve the plates more like a typical tapas restaurant and bring them over time as opposed to everything at once ( I think we asked but I don't think the server understood). She was accommodating, pleasant and attentive. Overall a good meal and a nice evening.

Service was outstanding,waitress kept waters filled and checked-in periodically throughout the meal. Appetizers and bread were excellent! Portion size of pasta dishes (Caprese Ravioli, Spicy Fettucini, Pasta Bolognese) was too small, which left us feeling disappointed as we had invited family to this restaurant to celebrate with us. Prices are reasonable for a reasonable-sized meal, but they missed that mark on the pasta dishes. The Chicken Mediterrano was delicious and quantity was plentiful. If you insist on ordering pasta, make sure to order an appetizer and maybe a salad so you don't go home hungry.

Disappointed. Was seated by the front door when the resturant was barley 1/4 Full. Didn’t state anywhere on open table that it was going to be a buffet for mother’s day. Was expecting the menu. There was confusion with the servers which one was waiting on us from the beginning. Once they did figure it out the server we had must have been nervous or wasn’t very Expierenced.
