Went with another couple before heading to a show at the Ames Center next door. Great selection of food in a casual and fun atmosphere. Food and service was very good. We will definitely be back!

I love stopping in for happy hour usually, but recently I have had a few dinners and absolutely love the menu and the choices I made. The staff is friendly and welcoming.

Delicious Buffett with an assortment of salads and main dishes. The gyro meat was moist and delicious. My only complaint is the bread is cut too small to make a sandwich.

We enjoyed our time there. Had a great bartender and she helped up pick out some great wines. I had the Leg of Lamb and was that delicious. Very filling. After our meal we were able to sit outside and enjoy a great evening.

Love the atmosphere here, very good food. We especially enjoy the lunch buffet, very good value and a wide assortment of dishes. The bar is very nice and I've never had a bad cocktail. We have always found the staff very welcoming, especially when we bring the children.

I've never had such bad service anywhere until my visit to Mediterranean this past week. I went on a Thursday night with a group of 8 for a birthday. For as empty as the restaurant was, service was unreasonably slow and servers were incredibly inattentive. Our server did not come to our table to ask if we were ready to... More

Great place to go after work. Buffet is great and I really enjoy the trumpet playing on Wednesday nights. Very fancy and fun place especially for a suburb. Salsa dancing is fun on Saturday nights also.

Not being from Minnesota, we consulted with our future daughter-in-law regarding a venue for the rehearsal dinner. She suggested this restaurant, one of her favorites. I worked with the gracious owner, Jamal, who went above and beyond to make our evening perfect. We chose a family style meal including appetizers and dessert for 35 people and it was a huge... More

The high ceiling and large open space filled with an unusual collection of design elements--multiple tv monitors behind the bar on one side, a row of bar stools, a row of high-top tables, a small stage for a belly dancer, and more traditional restaurant tables, together with loud background music suited for a belly dancer, create a unusual, if not...
