Mediterranean Meal

La Mediterranee is an old establishment among locals of Berkeley with good food that is reasonably priced. Without a reservation, we were seated immediately (albeit in the back next to the kitchen) and the staff was friendly but seemed overwhelmed.

We have been going to this restaurant for years. Always excellent. Last night, Jonah, our server, was good but the food was not. I ordered a Mythos beer - they didn't have any. This is Friday night and a Greek restaurant without Greek beer? Honestly, we should've left. Now to the food. We usually get some pita when we sit... More

nice to find somewhere informal with simple good tasty food Upon arrival you simply grab a menu and find a table and staff leave yoi to your own devices until you need them Portions are quite large but wasn't very hungry due to jet lag Recommended

We stooped here for lunch. My brother-in-law liked the Filet shishkabob. I liked the cheese filled phyllo, but not the one with chicken filling had raisins and cinnamon--tasted weird. The lemon soup was good

Stopped by after meandering on College Ave. in Berkeley. Food smelled amazing, lemon chicken soup sounded perfect on a rainy afternoon and the menu/specials were mouthwatering! We ordered two lunch specials of lamb kabobs and the chicken sampler plate. The hummus was spectacular, the Turkish coffee was wonderful and the lamb was savory. Server was super kind and helpful and... More

The food was excellent. The server was lacking. My group thought they were more into texting their friends than offering service. They have covered outdoor dining which is nice. I would go back and hope I get another group servers.

I have been here lots of times and went back this week for a trip down memory lane. The food was good as it had been before, and the environment was still hopping. There were some new faces in the restaurant but the menu was the same so it brought that same level of 'comfort' in the place. I used... More

It is really easy to do Mediterranean food poorly-- as evidenced by the innumerable strip mall fast food kinds of places. On the other hand, this food was amazing. Every element was delicious and divine. We had a huge catered wedding with almost every dish--chicken and rice, all the appetizers, hummus, tabbouli and really almost every menu item. It was...
