Here's what our customers are saying about Cafe Mediterranean.
I've been a fan of Cafe Mediterranean for many years and have frequently visited their Blue Ash location. That's why I was thrilled to hear they opened a new one close to Mt. Lookout. After trying the new location twice already, I'm ready to post a review. I really like the layout of the restaurant, which has a dedicated bar area as well as a dining room. We were greeted by an enthusiastic staff upon arriving. The menu reflects high-quality Mediterranean cuisine, including healthy home-made soups and salads, as well as lamb, beef, chicken, and seafood dishes. They have all my favorites with a slightly different twist compared to the Blue Ash location. I've tried two different soups and loved them both. The sampler appetizer was a hit. The falafel is delicious. For my entree, I had salmon both times, which is currently my favorite salmon dish in town. The portions are generous. Don't miss out on their house-made desserts. Baklava is my favorite!

We loved this place!
Our server was excellent! She explained that the menu was primarily Turkish, was ready with suggestions, and very familiar with Turkish cuisine in general. We were also able to get in and out in about an hour or hour and a half. We were never rushed or hurried, but we were hungry and were very happy with how quickly we got seated and served.
The food was fantastic! The baklava was the best that we have ever had. We ordered an appetizer of kisir, which was the perfect amount of food for a light plate split between two people. I was happy to notice that there were some good vegetarian and seafood choices available, which is always a nice option to have.
We can't wait to go back. This is a great addition to the neighborhood. Thanks!"

These folks know genuine customer service. Sometimes, you just go out to eat and to be waited on. You take your wife out to a nice place because she does a lot and needs to be taken care of. We had a great meal there. The stuffed grape leaves were outstanding! Not traditional, but didn't stray too far from the original to make it unrecognizable. Not sure how they got rid of the typical bitterness in the grape leaves, but it was exceptional. The truly "above and beyond" piece for us was the service. Food was tasty and authentic. Service by Will B was outstanding, and we'll definitely go back there again. They did a great job.
They serve some of the best food I have ever tasted at a Mediterranean restaurant. The chef has created some of the best and most unique dishes using only fresh ingredients and spices. Definitely one of the best restaurants in Cincinnati!
