Mediterranean tonight!

A little gem of a neighborhood plaza restaurant. We went in for a Sunday evening dinner. There was plenty of staff on duty. The shrimp scampi and pasta was a very good dinner as was the beef rolla. The rolla was akin to a gyro with two exceptions, much thinner bread used than some places that... read more

This is a very nice place for groups to meet for luncheons or families to go for brunch. The menu is amazing and offers so much from which to choose. My daughter and I went in for lunch this week to an almost empty restaurant save two people sitting outside at the tables provided. We were seated for almost 15... More

hubby and I stopped in for lunch one afternoon. It took forever to get our food and once we got it, it wasn't that good. the place was dead so we weren't sure why it took so long. we were hoping it was would be a good option since we live so close, but its not.

This is a go to place for dinner all the time, anytime! All of their dishes are yummy and well prepared. We love sharing an assortment of their small dishes and a flatbread along with any of their fun cocktails or a bottle from their nice wine selection. Reasonably priced with helpful and attentive service, this is a great place... More

We visited the restaurant on Valentine's Day for lunch as the evening was expected to turn sour with record breaking chill and high winds. The place was recommended by an acquaintance as I was looking for a cozy place to take my wife and daughter. A little let down at first as the ambiance was less inviting. Tables and floor... More

This was my first visit with a friend who had been there many times. I could not get over the size of the menu and uniqueness of the items especially for the area. We wanted a salad and by experience, my friend new it was large so we asked to split it. When the waitress returned with two bowled salads... More

The first time I ate here several years back, I liked the food so much that I went back again. Over the the last several visits, I realized something had changed., The food didn't feel the same. I am told that some of the meat is halal and that was a reason I would bring my friends who eat halal... More

I knew this restaurant had a wonderful reputation but in a shopping center off the beaten track. Went Sunday for the brunch with 3 others. Best brunch ever. Why would you go to a chain restaurant! We all make that mistake. Servers Cindy and Van were the ultimate in attentiveness and kindness. Best French toast and great omelettes. Bloody Mary... More

There were five of us and we all had something different and we each had a very pleasant experience. The "mediterranean pide" was superb. The scampi was a delight. The chicken alfredo and pizza were very good. The salmon was excellent. All very, very good. The service was attentive and appropriate at all times. This was a noisy, strip mall... More

We hadn't dined here in over a year, and we both thought it has changed for the worse. Both of our entrees were prepared very differently from the last time we ate dinner here. The Adana Kebab was very dry. But we were hungry and it was late so we ate it without complaining. But I don't remember anyone asking... More
