If you have a chance, try this place. It's excellent. It's not earth shattering but certainly offers great service, great food, and great ambiance until it gets too full of people and loud. There with a party of 6 and everyone enjoyed everything they ordered. It's a bit pricey but commensurate with other restaurants of this quality.

We enjoyed a very romantic dinner on the very large covered patio. Obviously they are known for their wine list, the bottles lined a full wall. Great selection of beer as well. The servers were also very attentive. We enjoyed a selection of Tapas. Check out the half price Tapas nights which my friend enjoyed one night, however I cant... More

We eat at Nediterra regularly and continue to be impressed with the superb food( highest quality, farm to table) and the servers' attention to detail and caretaking attention! The imaginative array of menu choices with healthy options and truly magnificent preparation and presentation make Mediterra a memorable experience!! There is no better place to eat in the area.

This was our first trip to Mediterra, although we were dining with people that recommended it. Our meals were delicious! I had striped bass with ratatouille and it was great. Our group also ordered Paella and they loved it. We had some Spanish folks with us and they think it is some of the best they ever had. This restaurant... More

Mediterra is ideally located in the heart of Princeton. It's got it all: indoor & outdoor seating, a bustling scene, active bar, and comfortable seating. The food is ridiculously underwhelming -- this place thrives on the fact that food is almost never the purpose of a gathering there. Too bad. The competitive "bar" in Princeton is low (I'd say it's... More

The most important attribute of 'Mediterra' is the ambience. There is hustle and bustle chatter and good service. Tuesday's and Thursdays it's tapas night +++ live music All in all, I highly reccomend it.

The food is always excellent, but what wow-ed us at our last visit was the courtesy of the staff: we went there with a group of friends just for drinks after a party, and it was more than one hour after closing time that we realized how late it was. Nobody on the staff made us feel at any time... More

I have been here for a social dinner during a very short stay in Princeton. I come from Italy, and always am very skeptical about italian restaurants in the USA as they often claim they can offer good and original italian food but they actually don't in 90% of the cases. This restaurant had fully met my expectations. Above all,... More

Sat outside, which was nice. As with so many US restaurants, there was a staff member for everything yet service was poor in so many ways....the "wine guy" couldn't even pour the wine without pouring half of it over the table! The food was pretty good. Octopus starter well cooked and seafood linguine with delicious prawns but in a very... More

Excels in innovative entrees atmosphere and service. I was impressed that caring owners asked about my dinner experience and discussed other restaurants they own in the area all of which have excellent reputations. Norman M Berlin
