The Moroccan lamb dish was so good that I made Moroccan pork the next day at home in my slow cooker!

Our table order comprised Hummus, Salmon, grilled chicken and vegan crab. Surprisingly, none of them had the kind of flavor once expects. Maybe it was an off day for Mediterra because I have eaten there multiple times and have returned for more. This experience was highly disappointing especially because I had some international guests who I promised a great dining experience.

Mediterra was able to accommodate our large party on short notice, and were so welcoming! Our servers were there when we needed them, and the food was delicious as always! The sweet potato corn chowder was welcome on a rainy evening.

The food was terrible, and the ingredients in the dish were not the same as what was reflected on the menu.

It is not the first time we dine here and we live in Philadelphia, Very nice place, great food and god experience.

We were seated inside and it was very loud. Our table and another party next to us asked to be moved. The manager kindly offered us an outside table, and it was delightful. Service was friendly, but sometimes slow. Food outstanding as always.

The food and ambience were very good. The Tapas choices were varied and two of our party shared a mushroom dish. It was delicious! I felt however, that there could have been more choices on the wine list per glass. There was a pumpkin soup that each of us tried. It had a great aftertaste and it reminded us of the fall ahead.
The main courses, a pastaless lasagna, and muscles, were very good. The waiters and servers were very efficient and came back to check on us frequently.
The only reason I can't give an excellent rating, is because two of us got sick later that evening. We think it may have been the buffalo mozzarella from the eggplant pastaless dish. Other than that unfortunate experience, the restaurant was good and the value was very good as well.

Very nice service and an interesting menu. Had the smoked falafel and it was subtle and just different enough. The accompaniments were tasty. My husband had the gazpacho and calamari. While he really liked the gazpacho I was a bit surprised at the price ($10.00 for a small bowl.) His calamari was good while it was hot. Service was attentive without being cloying. All in all a nice experience.

We used to love Mediterra and went there very often but sadly the food is not very exciting. The gazpacho was so spicy that we were unable to eat it. There was no mention on the menu that it was that spicy. The corn soup had a peculiar taste rather unpleasant. The Greek salad was just ok as was the hummus. I think we are going to refrain from going there for now.

The waiter for our table (near the bar/window) was totally preoccupied with helping others and working the bar. Not sure if he was overwhelmed and super busy or just not bothered. Either way, the overall service was very disappointing. Even the couple behind us complained. Food was excellent.

Always a mainstay in Princeton quality is consistently good with moderate changes to the menu with the change of seasons. Easy-going atmosphere especially outside is great in summertime. When you’re in Princeton it’s a must visit.

Our family enjoyed a lovely evening dining outdoors. We were greeted by the most charming young woman, Megan. Our server, Nick, was equally as personable. The amazing food and fun atmosphere make it worth the trip every time!

Lunch on the terrace with a dear friend who was visiting from New York was a pure delight. Our server, Valentina, was cordial and professional and did not rush us. The menu offered so many delectable items that it was difficult to choose. My friend had a chicken sandwich that had several intriguing ingredients, and I had the market grain bowl with a tasty variety of components. We each had a glass of wine and shared a delicious lemon panna cotta dessert. The bill before tip was only $73 -- an amazing bargain for such high-quality fare in a prime setting. Mediterra remains my favorite restaurant in downtown Princeton.

Always enjoy the food and the bread...mussels and monk-fish were outstanding...flourless chocolate cake would have been better with less cherry topping, the topping was just too sweet. Sangria remains a favorite.

Being able to sit outside was lovely.

Me and my family have been eating in Mediterra for more than 22 years. I do not recall a single time where I was disappointed. The food was and still is outstanding, the service is very good, although when the restaurant is full, the service personnel seems to be a little short in size, but the attention and effort are still very good.
I would recommend Mediterra to any friend or family member. My evaluation of Mediterra is not in a vacuum, as I eat frequently in Connecticut ( Tabola Rasa ), ( Good news Cafe), Palm Beach, Florida
( Renato), ( Bice), ( Taboo), ( Roof Top), in Boca Raton ( Lucca), ( Casa d' Angelo), ( La Nouvelle Maison), etc.
for the same reasons as Mediterra. Look forward to the next visit.

I was so happy to find vegan items on the menu. The vegan crab cakes were exceptional. I would just ask that they make some vegan dessert too.

My husband had lunch here one Friday afternoon when we both had the day off. Although it was a weekday afternoon the restaurant was active with diners. We began our meal with a cucumber gin and tonic. My hubby is not a big fan of cucumbers, but we both enjoyed this tasty and refreshing drink. The cucumber flavor didn't overwhelm the drink. For appetizers we had the calamari which were tender and crispy. We also tried the goat cheese empanadas which were golden on the outside and pure delicious on the inside. For our main meal we decided on the salmon with honey glaze. The salmon was a generous portion which was cooked to perfection and the toasted quinoa and honey glaze were fantastic. It was served on a tasty bed of spinach and mushrooms. We ended our meal with a delicious cup of cappuccino. No room for dessert...this time!! This was our first time dining at Mediterra and we will certainly return to try the other appetizing dishes on their menu. Extremely satisfied with the entire meal!!

After making a reservation, I started reading some reviews that did not paint a good picture of Mediterra. I almost canceled but am really glad I didn't! Our server was prompt, personable, interested and helpful. We dined outside and found the ambiance charming. Our food was tasty and cooked to order. I think it was the best pork chop I've ever had - perfectly prepared. We will definitely come back, and recommend this dining experience.
