Visited here on a date with my husband because we received a gift certificate . The food was average, not worth the money at all . The portions are exceptionally small. I would not visit there again

Hi Denise, I apologize for your experience. We are in a transition right now as we train new staff and prepare to move locations. Please give us another opportunity to earn our "dots" back? The new location will be open by mid-September. Jen More

Nice little neighborhood place with comfy little patio. Great service. Those two things brought my rating to a 3 star...otherwise it would have been a 1 star rating. On the website, they advertise specials that they no longer offer, eg Happy Hour Mondays. So we left on Monday and came back on Wednesday. The tapas are terribly small and offensively... More

I've been here a few times and have literally never been disappointed with a dish. My personal favorites are the mushroom and cheese, house-style pickles, and well, all of it. I love that they are tapas, or small dishes, because you can order several played to share. We ordered about 8 for the two of us and felt just the... More

This used to be such a gem. It has been our go to date night spot for about 5 years. Basically because the prices are reasonable, service is great and wine list. They also do wine flights which is so unusual for this area I think maybe i've had my blinders on for the past few years going here and... More

Seriously THE WORST experience in my life. I've run several restaurants over the past year and let me tell you, I could've fed the entire restaurant cooking from my own kitchen in the time it took to get even a drink. There's nothing like going out with friends to a new place only to have to wait two and a... More

Meditrina is an intimate neighborhood cafe serving locally-sourced, delicious, and creative tapas that change with the seasons. Go with friends so you can try at least one of everything on the menu! Sweet shaded patio for al fresco dining even on a warm evening, just around the corner from the Salt Lake Bees baseball field. Try a wine pairing event.

While on a trip to visit my grown children in Salt Lake, Meditrina was suggested as a viable place to dine. I wish I could say it was a great experince, but unfortunately it was not. While the waiter was knowledgeable regarding wine choices, he obvioulsy was not a foodie. We knew the plates would be small so we were... More

What a delicious surprise! I truly enjoyed each and every dish. We ordered ten items between the four of us and had a wonderful time eating and sharing them all. This is a seriously talented chef.

Mediterina has been our "go to" spot in Salt Lake City for a LONG time. This last week we went and boy were we disappointed. We started with the "blistered shishito peppers" and not one was the slightest bit blistered. They were actually cold and crunchy, as if the chef didn't even know the meaning of the word "blistered." I... More

I enjoyed an awesome evening meal at the Meditrina with my wife. The wait staff is professional and very helpful in describing menu items. Chef Jose prepared and sent out plate after plate of mouth watering taste sensations. We started with Ahi nachos, followed by chilled prawn, then mushrooms and brie, red potatoes and Brussel sprouts. The only way I... More
