Keeping with tradition of great hospitality and good food, Méme provides a cozy atmosphere and flavorful dishes using Mémé Cohen’s own hand-ground paprika. Chef Jacob continues to impress with his culinary creativity and generosity.
Food was mediocre
An unexpected gem.
Food delicious, service very friendly and menu varied. Good pre-theater restaurant.
Good food. Even better drinks. The noise level was very reasonable for a small restaurant. The staff was excellent.
Perfect for before theater. I'd go back again for sure!
Great food and service. We will definitely return.
excellent secwction and very fresh and tasty with friendly competent service
This little gem of a restaurant offers savory plates that can be shared or not! The ambiance, wines and drink list is also delicious.
Meme Mediterranean is a hidden gem in an area of town that was once desolate. Their authentic cuisine, friendly wait staff and ability to get us out in record time due to theatre, was all fantastic. A must dine for those going to the theatre and wouldn't mind walking an extra 5 minutes west!
The menu is varied - you can select from unique Tapas to main courses. The service was excellent and food quality very good. It is a great pre-theater restaurant as the Tapas dishes come fairly quickly. The restaurant is small and can be a bit tight but overall we would recommend Meme.
Great food and attentive service. Worth a visit!
I celebrated my birthday and was perfect. Food, service. Very accommodating to special requests.
I love this neighborhood gem!! The food is delicious, always a lot to share and their Bloody Marys are so good . Love their brunch too!!
Wonderful place--interesting food-super fresh fish, complicated flavorful, spicy. Great salads, appetizers-loved it.
The food was excellent
These days you simply have to get used to moderate noise level?
The review for three people is mixed. For appetizers we chose an eggplant dish and meatballs. We also shared a Caesar salad. Meatballs were amazing. The eggplant was nothing special. Closer to eggplant Parmesan. Olive bread was delicious. Caesar salad good. I was extremely happy with my chicken tagine. My fellow diners had couscous and salmon. The couscous was not great. The salmon was good, but slightly overcooked when ordered medium. Service was a bit bumpy. Our server forgot several items. We shared an apple tarte with ice cream which was delicious. I will go back for more tagine. The others said no.
The food and service was very good. The seating is a bit cramped but we would definitely go again
The food was very good in its preparation and presentation. Unfortunately the space at and around the tables is sparse and noise level is high.
Have highly recommended this popular restaurant in the past. The food is delicious, with plenty of vegetarian options. The atmosphere is small & cozy. On this visit, though, the service was borderline rude. The host greeted us perfunctorily. The restaurant was almost empty & our table was directly under a heater, so we asked to move one table over to a window seat. Our server said ok, but we were then approached by the host for a short but snippy conversation about the switch. Our server was competent but no smiles, no suggestions or recommendations. Such a contrast to the way I've been welcomed at this restaurant on prior visits. As the tables filled, there was a nice conversational buzz, improving the atmosphere. The food was excellent. As we left, a young employee stationed at the door said "good night" without ever looking up from her cell phone. A disappointment.
This is a fantastic restaurant - quaint, comfortable and thoughtful. The food is simple and delicious. The staff is attentive. It's a perfect pre theatre spot.
6 friends had tapas last weekend. Everyone loved it. I have dined here several times and recommended it to others and have never been disappointed. The food is consistently good!
A great spot! We went post-matinee when they opened at 5 pm, and it filled up immediately.
Excellent food. Efficient service, though not very personable.
Great food, service can use more detail!
We greatly enjoyed this restaurant with excellent food that was a bit different from the usual Mediterranean cuisine. We chose all appetizers and each dish was plentiful and with its own unique flavor.
We highly recommend Meme.
The restaurant is very small but the service and food were outstanding. Can get a little loud during peak dining hours but quieted down after the rush (around 9 pm). Many options for vegetarians and carnivores alike. Highly recommended.
Today was my second visit.. Both times for Sunday brunch. The first visit was during the summer and I loved it.. Today not so much.
The food today was just "okay" and the service was pretty ordinary. We had a reservation today and we arrived on time, the resturant wasn't very busy. We asked for a table by the window (I love to people watch), but we were denied as the host said that a two-top was set up for 3 people.. So we got set at the very back of the resturant just outside the service/kitchen area. About 10 minutes into our meal she sat 2 people at the table I had requested.. Odd.
They served cold bread with butter just out of the freezer. Seriously, how much effort is required to warm up the bread?
The lobster and eggs were fine.. not as much flavor as I expected.. But a little salt helped. And the lamb burger was also just okay.
All in all a dissapointing experience. I live in the neighborhood and I'm very glad I didn't have to travel too far out of my way for this meal. I'm not likely to return any time soon as there are so many other better options in the area.
Food was decent. Service was curt and inattentive. Waitress seemed uninterested and slightly rude.
The food was good. I was able to get a table with a short notice. Prices are not bad. Overall I would go back.
Amazing! Took my sister here this past weekend, wow she loved it! We were celebrating her birthday that is coming up. The restaurant was packed when we arrived pretty early for our 730 reservation. The host was nice to let us stay at the bar until our table was ready. A table quickly freed up after 10 minutes. We will be back! Thank you
I had been wanting to try Meme for a while and they did not disappoint. We went for a pre-theater meal. The restaurant has a wonderful warmly lit ambiance. Our server met us in a flash and took our drink order and got it perfectly correct. 5 stars just for that! The tahini Cesar was a delightful twist on a classic! The mushrooms with spinach so well seasoned and flavorful and the eggplant so delicious- if I wasn’t going to sit in a 2 hour show I would have ordered more. Will definitely go back. I also liked that there seemed to be some locals in the place taking their time - can’t wait to try some of their other inventive dishes.
Always reliable - great food and friendly, casual atmosphere.
Food came out late, people arriving after received food before us. Food was cold, some chips were raw disappointing with portion sizes for new York standard. Wouldn't come back.
A delicious North African meal - coucous, tajine. Wonderful fresh, well prepared. You could feel the love and good intention of the chef. That said, it's a noisy restaurant, so it might not be the best place for a conversation. Also, I would advise asking for a table by the wall - better light, a little more room and less noise. The greeter at the door could have been a lot more friendly. The wait staff is good.
Great spot. Octopus was great. Short rib and pumpkin risotto was to die for.
Always delicious. Staff is friendly and helpful. A great place to have a meal.
Great place for a small group. We enjoyed sharing small plates. Food was delicious and service was fantastic! Always a reliable spot for a great experience.
Truffle gnocchi is delicious!! Must try!
Interesting choice of food and flavors. Love the tapas. Great for sharing
i would recommend meme if you're in the area, but i would not recommend you go out of your way for it. the waiters are never that friendly but the food is very solid but a little over priced for the portions.
