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.

This is a great restaurant. The food is superior, the service is excellent and the atmosphere is above average.
I asked for something that wasn't on the dinner menu and they were very willing to meet my needs. I have been to this restaurant both for pleasure and business. Everyone was very satisfied with the evening.

We celebrated my Dad’s 90th birthday with a small family dinner on a Sunday night. The restaurant had a fair amount of guests and we received good service. Family members enjoyed the chicken under a brick, pasta and various fish entrees. Everyone was pleased.

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.

Mediterrano has become our restaurant of choice in Ann Arbor. The food is always wonderful, with seasonal updates, and beautifully presented with ample but not overwhelming portions. While food is the most important part of a meal, the “extras“are so important to the enjoyment of a meal: the waitstaff are all seasoned, well trained and professional with great knowledge of tastes and prep techniques; every reservation request is honored; our table is always ready when we arrive. The host is gracious and always welcoming.

This restaurant is a jewel.

I ordered a Caesar Salad with Salmon. The salad seemed smaller than in the past and the salmon was overcooked and, as a result, was very dry.

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.
