Daughters birthday dinner - Griggs chicken, Pork Ossobuco, Salmon entrees and Bent Spoon Trio, MochaTart, and Apple Tart deserts were spectacular. Service was swift and friendly. Reservations required at least on Fridays. Place is packed with customers. Dont look too hard for street parking. Best option is parking garage diagonal to restaurant entrance. Pricey but worth it for special occasions.

Great experience at Mediterra particularly at the bar on Thursday or Friday night. Fun, good wait staff and neighborhood feel.

Meditera provided our small group with a very nice dinner. We were welcomed nicely. The service is attentive and friendly, unhurried and unpressured. We enjoyed a nice French cabernet and very well prepared meals. The salmon was very good and the short ribs of beef (a special) were splendid. Altogether a charming meal. I would very happily dine here again.

In the last year or so, Mediterra has become of very fun place to go. Some of it is an overhaul of the menu to make it clean, simple and delicious, focused on fresh local foods with a Mediterranean flare. Moreover, the bar scene is lots of fun and there is music a couple nights a week--percussive guitars that had... More

We went to this restaurant in the heart of Princeton for a nice dinner. First of all, there were (4) women at a table suited for small children. I am always amazed that restaurants place people at a table that an appetizer cannot even be shared because there is no room. The bruschetta was not bruschetta, but some soft bread... More

I highly recommend the Canal Farm local green salad. For starters the Olsson's Artisanal Cheese Plate is a must as is the Brushetta. For the entrée - the Niman Ranch Pork Ossobuco and the Scottish Salmon - perfection! Beautiful décor, staff was very attentive. Extraordinary cuisines in downtown quaint Princeton. The perfect find for friends from out f state!

The food is OK here, but not a great value. The quality doesn't live up to the expense. Teresa's, which is around the corner, is a better deal.

Beautiful location. Plenty of bread. We ordered a cheese plate that had 3 tiny slices of cheese on it. Wife ordered a chicken dish which I wound up eating some of, I thought it was good. Son ordered a pork chop dish that he enjoyed. I ordered a pasta dish with scallops and shrimp which I thought was lousy. Some... More

Spent a beautiful fall Sunday in Princeton taking my daughter and 3 of her 7th grade classmates to some historical sites they needed to visit to complete a social studies project. We made a reservation a few days in advance at Mediterra and were very pleased with our selection. I ordered 2 starters for my lunch: the yellow split pea... More

Went there for a birthday dinner last week, it was a little busy for a sunday night dinner. They serve fresh cut up assorted bread as you sit down. They offer a wine list. They also have a sit down bar. The waiter didn't offer to explain an specials. The menu is limited to a few pasta dishes, a salmon... More
