The food was simply awful. Nothing was good. If you’re going to charge for bread, please make sure it isn’t stale like the nasty hard stuff that came to my table. Someone who owns this restaurant should spend some money on training. This really was very unenjoyable. You’d think “Princeton” would show better than this nonsense….

It was my Birthday celebration with friends and family. Our server was so nice and so accommodating. Everything about the night was perfect. The Blood orange, sparkling Rose cosmopolitan was excellent.

Had a lovely lunch On a frigid January day. Warmed right up with Great service, inventive cocktails and various menu options - it was hard to choose. The pork sandwich and butterscotch pudding were my favorites. Also, noticeable COVID safety protocols were appreciated.

The food was excellent. The waiter was inattentive and not engaging. Asked about choices and was flat with answers. To be honest it seemed as we were bothering him by sitting at the table. Had to ask for more water 3 different times, did not have silverware when our entree arrived. Barely returned back to table. Food was excellent which saved the experience.

All the food we ordered was above expectations, even a staple item like the Hummus.

Loved the Octopus and Scallops dishes the most.

Service was exemplary, Julio was an absolute delight!

The service is very poor. After being seated no one attended to our table even though there are plenty of staff idling around. Our waiter is impolite. The fried Sicilian cauliflower is too salty. It’s also over fried so that it tastes bitter. The oyster is ok but again too salty. The chef is very stingy with saffron in the paella. The whole dinner is of very poor quality.

This was the worst dining experience I ever had. I ate on the patio and the one heater only served half our party of six.I was freezing. After complaining, the manager, he told us when a table was available, he would move us nearer other heaters. Another couple was seated there instead of us. Our waiter completely forgot my drink order. After another reminder, he told me the bar was backed up. My drink didn't come until after my main course was served. The restaurant should never had charged me for that drink. I will never go to that restaurant agian.

Our second visit to this eatery. The food was very good, as was the service. Standard menu with no added specials. A bit pricey, but very good quality.

We were a group of eight and enjoyed the dinner in every way. Mediterra is halfway between parts of our family and we always look forward to gathering there for an enjoyable evening.

Our waiter, Michael, added to our evening with his attentiveness.

Keep up the good work!

Food was great. Restaurant quieter than usual…most likely due to the recent COVID uptick in NJ/NYC. Staff had little to no knowledge of their wine list.

My wife had the short rib pasta and it was very savory. I had the house burger and it was perfect. Joe was our waiter and he was very knowledgeable on the menu and local activities. Their was a loud backroom party but Joe tied to keep the door closed to lessen the noise. We had a wonderful lunch. The staff here really care about your dining experience. A+

I made reservations for today for a special occasion. We have had wonderful lunches here in the past. The soup today was delicious. The rest of the food however took forever to come out today. It was nearly an hour for the main course to come out. Our server was terrible. We were left pretty much alone while the other servers fawned over their guests. Our server never checked on us and we had to flag another server to find out where our lunch was. He did not bring it out. The burger and fries were luke warm and greasy. Even packing the to-go bags, the grease was everywhere. It was very disappointing. In addition, Not a word was made about my reservation for the "special occasion". Lots of indigestion since we have gotten home. When was the oil last changed in the fryer? My tea cup that was brought to me was filthy. We could not wait to get out of there. It was really off today and so disappointing. We will not hurry back and warn our friends to expect a different experience. We do hope you can correct this.
