Love their chicken rice lime soup

I've eaten here numerous times over the years and really like their food. Their chicken soup is awesome, and I also love their apricot stuffed meatballs. I ordered falafels once that were overcooked and dry, but when I complained, they brought me some fresh ones that were better. Service can be a... read more

As other people have stated the decor is odd and very dated and the service is a little slow but the food is good! I had the lamb sandwich and it was nice tender slices of lamb.. The red sauce it came with was bland but the tzatziki is good! The menu said that the sandwich would come with a... More

I'm not impressed with their decorations inside. Services is a little slow. Lemon rice is little dry. My son didntlike the mediterranean lasagna. Kebabs is good with roasted tomato. This restaurant needs to upgrade their decors &tables.

This is a great place that has all three of the fundamental ingredients for a local restaurant we look for on a weekly basis: great food, seamless service and affordable prices. Café Med has been doing good work of more than a decade. While it is not meant to be an elegant dinner spot, the ambiance is just fine, the... More

I see that many other reviewers have noted the decor of Cafe Med. That's obviously the first thing you notice about a place, but since Cafe Med has been around awhile, we figured they must have good food to overcome what is very kitschy decor (pinwheels, flags, seagulls). And they do, as well as friendly service to match. My husband... More

If you were to drive up to this place for the first time (as my husband did today) without a referral from someone else, you probably wouldn't come with very high expectations, if you even came in at all. The inside is pretty outdated/ eclectic as well. But don't let appearances fool you. The food is great and reasonably priced.... More

Great Mediterranean food at a reasonable price. Stick with the basics, hummus, gyro. Don't venture too far into the menu - you'll be disappointed.

I love mediterranean food so I wanted to try this restaurant. All the mediterranean flags were outside the restaurant, which is nice, and the food was a mix of greec, persian, lebanese and american food. I took a persian stew, it tasted ok, but the tomato sauce was so thick that I had a heartburn all afternoon. My daughter's eggs... More

My brother and I were in SLC on business and needed to find a place for lunch. I looked at TA and we selected Café Med because it was nearby and we both like Greek food. What a nice surprise. The service was excellent. Thank you Jason! The food was very good, and I have to mention that the salad... More
