La Mediterranee is one those restaurants one goes to when good food, at a reasonable price and the ability to hold a civilized conversation without resorting to American Sign Language to get above the roar of the madding crowd. Ernesto runs a nice establishment and his kitchen is more than up to the task of classic bistro fare. On the... More

We were seated quickly and had a good meal. We started with a nice cheese and fruit plate and I followed this with the steak au poivre which was very good. Unfortunately, we were seated in the front window and the bartender was our waitress. There were a number of people in the bar, so this didn't work. The piano... More

Four of us spent time visiting New York City and ate several dinners here. They have a Fixed Price Menu that is only $28 before 6:30 or $38 after that. The Trout Almadine was wonderful as was the Onglet Steak. The appetizers were great and the Raspberry Sorbet for dessert was to die for. We all loved coming here.

For our final dinner in Manhattan, we picked La Mediterranee because it has live music in the dining room. It actually was a return visit for us; we ate there a year ago on our first trip to New York. We enjoyed the food and the music the first time and decided to try again. We encountered a slight cultural... More

Recommended by the concierge at the Kimberly. Pleasant atmosphere, Well run, good staff and first rate food. Had moules marinere And provencale. Large portions, but we managed to finish each order. Frites were done the right way; thin, crisp outside with tender insides. Onion soup was good, but not great. Mixed green salad was crisp and fresh.

Went here for lunch and back again anothr day for dinner. The staff were incredibly friendly and accomodating on both occassions. And the food was marvelous, especially the Coq Au Vin! And a special treat was the piano player in the evening. The prices are very reasonable.

Decided to try a restaurant out of our usual home circle. So happy we did! This is a lovely restaurant from service to atmosphere to food. We tried the red snapper special and shared the beet salad special. Outstanding! Portions are larger than most places and a glass of wine is that...a glass vs. a trickle! Also, the Martinis were...

We met friends in NYC and decided to have a dinner together: 8 persons, no reservation, 7H30 PM, and it was raining outside. We were desperately running and wet from one place to the other. We ended at La Méditerranée. The owner managed to welcome us in his busy bistro within a few minutes, reflecting the American efficacy! The menu... More
