The service at Casa Mediterranean was very good, and the ambiance is nice. The presentation is good, and the area outside has some cool artwork to look at. Unfortunately, I found the food only mediocre and under spiced, which is typical on 5th Ave.

It is easy to miss this cozy oasis located in what seems to be an indoor courtyard cushioned between art galleries. The appetizers of bruschetta and delicious grilled vegetables were a perfect beginning to a lovely meal with well balanced service that was attentive without being at all overbearing. I would maybe suggest to prospective diners to see if the... More

Although the host wasn't as aggressive as the ones you normally see on 5th avenue, the service was surely much more attentive. But let me tell you about the food: I had bruschetta as an appetizer and gnocchi for the main course, and it was just amazing! I could have licked my plate but luckily there was bread on the...

Found this place on recommended on Mapchicks. Easy to walk by on 5th ave but delightful when you walk in courtyard and discovered it. My wife had the lasagna and I had the spaghetti w/sausage. Both were delicious. Waiters were prompt but not overbearing. Only downside was it was a la carte. Ordered entrees, salad was extra, ordered drink, water... More

We've been here a couple of times. Last year we had an incident with an allergy scare. Owners were really surprised and concerned. Food was great then. So we went back. We were pleasantly surprised to see the menu was changed to reflect the actual contents in the dishes. Food continues to be great. Staff is helpful, friendly and make... More

Wow, what a fine dinner! This was our first visit to Casa Mediterranea for dinner, based on a recommendation. Food and service were exceptional. This little restaurant is just a few steps off 5th Avenue, and the owners took great care of us. We will be back next year!
