I dined here for a business lunch. While it was delicious, I found it quite pricey for lunch. The dinner prices, that I briefly glanced at, didn't seem all that outrageous.

The atmosphere was appealing and service was great.

Ratings much too high based on our experience. Service was excellent, atmosphere was fine but I expected more given the strong rating in top ten for all of Ann Arbor. Souvlaki was tough and broccoli on top of rice was overcooked. My wife had butternut squash ravioli and this dish was good. Might have been better as an appetizer. In fairness, waiter had recommended other entrees but only the most expensive items on the menu. We weren't real hungry and decided to pick some of the mid-priced items. Pretty ordinary when half of your party leaves a restaurant disappointed. Restaurant sits on the backside of a small strip mall so it loses some atmosphere points for that reason, especially when there are so many fun places in downtown Ann Arbor.

From the exterior, it looks like just another restaurant. But when you enter, the incredibly high ceilings and decor tell you that you are in for a surprise. And once the food is served, you know that you made a wise choice. Everything we had was superb!

This restaurant is a little out of the way but well worth finding. A real gastronomical delight. We decided to splurge and went for the tasting menu with wine pairings.The the food was outstanding. Service was knowledgable and timely. It was a 5 course meal and was served over about 2 hours with a very interesting and well selected wine pairing. I have a lousy lower back so the booth I was in was a little uncomfortable. Would have been better at a table but I did not ask to be moved. The TV in the bar seems incongruous with the quality of the food. Overall, if you are looking for just excellent food and a nice surrounding with good service, then this place is a fine choice.

We had not been to Mediteranno's in a few years and were curious to check out the new menu. Overall we were disappointed. The lamb souvlaki was very tough and cooked well-beyond the medium rare we had requested. The roasted pear salad combined ingredients that I generally love: pears, Marcona almonds, arugula, Kefalograviera cheese and balsamic vinegar, but the cheese and rubbery and flavorless, the balsamic was of dubious quality and absolutely drenched the arugula, the pears were not only roasted but appear to have been spiced -- overall too many flavors fighting each other. We encountered similar problems with a daily special of heirloom tomatoes prepared 3 different ways. The tomatoes themselves were fresh and flavorful, but the dressing were so astringent as to border on the medicinal; herbs and spices were thrown together with little apparent thought. The otherwise terrific house bread was marred by stale-tasting olive oil. Although we barely touched our entrees, we decided to skip dessert -- we had little confidence that it would be worth the money. Here's hoping that the chef rethinks the menu, because the ambience at Mediterrano is pleasant, and especially the outdoor seating (despite its location by a parking lot). However, until the menu changes, we will not return.
