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.

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.

Nice surprise! The food was delicious and I had a nice glass of white Bordeaux. Was in Ann Arbor for work. Highly recommend the food. Might be priced a bit high but I’m not familiar with area so maybe not

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.

We brought a candidate for a university job (EMU) to Mediterrano. This is my go to place for both candidate dinners and for nice meals with my family and friends. It never disappoints. Service is superb, food is delicious, and the atmosphere is warm and elegant without being stuffy. Simply the best!!

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.

There have been some menu changes that are not positive menu changes. Primarily, altering one of their best menu items and trading the risotto for angel hair pasta. The risotto really made the dish!

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.

We were in town visiting and happened upon this restaurant on open table and liked the menu. Beyond expectations!!! They were closing soon so we were the only ones there but our waitress Diana made us feel welcome and never rushed us. The food was amazing and Diana was beyond helpful and kind. Best experience !!!

The Drinks were good and the salads were pretty good I guess. I had the Ravioli though and it didn't taste like anything. I just overall felt like the food wasn't totally worth the price.

The food and service was great. Took a while to be seated but thats expected on a holiday. If you look around it's not the staffs fault. The customers don't want to leave because everything is so perfect. Best service from a wonderful attentive knowledgeable server. Food was awesome and ambience was great. Anna the waitress knew the menu and how to modify the dishes to make them gluten free. John the general manager was gratious and professional. Will definately return.

There was a special menu for Valentine’s Day with inflated prices compared to what I was used to seeing at lunch time (some same plate). We had reservations but still had to wait 10 minutes for a table. When we were seated it was at a temporary round cocktail table setup as extra space to cram more people in. It had a napkin stuffed under the table leg to keep it from rocking. Too small of space to be comfortable.

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.

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.
