We were there for Saturday brunch. The table was by the front window and that was great on a pretty day. I have celiac so I love eating here...knowing that I can have whatever is on the menu. Everyone enjoyed their food although the serving size for some of the choices was small. I don't mind this because that's how we all need to eat but some of us were hungry shortly after eating. The service was certainly adequate but I just felt it could have been just a little bit better. ie. refilling our coffee and water, checking in with us, etc. They weren't busy at all so it just seemed a little lax. Our was a group of 9 including two little kids, btw. The food tasted great, as always. We'll definitely go again.

I like restaurants that have a limited menu when it comes to food choices. Irrespective of what you order you can taste they put all their experience and creativity into it. Quality over quantity. Also very good espresso prepared by someone that knows how to operate such a machine. Other than that very friendly staff.

I love Mediterranea; however, I was a little disappointed in the Involtini. The first time I had it, it was wonderful! My friend and I both ordered it again and we were both disappointed. It just wasn't the same. Seems like the cheese was a little tough, not cooked enough perhaps. I will be back again and will try something else next time.

Excellent gluten free experience! I have eaten at Mediterranea several times and have never been disappointed. Not only are the entrees creative and appealing, they taste awesome! My recent visit was for brunch, which was awesome! I highly recommend Mediterranea! I am GF for an allergy to wheat, and I have never had an issue with the restaurant or bakery items.

It's such a joy to go to a restaurant where I know I can eat anything on the menu because it is gluten free, and where I know no one would suspect that everything is gluten free. The food is fantastic, the staff are great, and the menu options are varied. Great place.

Overall nice experience. Food was delish, coffee was good, once I got it. Only issue was time it took for me to get my coffee. 30 min is way too long, backed up or not. Preferably I’d like to drink it before my food comes out. When I asked about it, thinking maybe she forgot to place the order, I was told she was backed up, and that was it. I was sitting watching as this lady make the drinks and then take photos of them, maybe that was why? Priorities I guess.

My wife and I went to Mediterranea for her birthday. She has mild allergies and tries to go gluten free mostly. I often join her on that. Mediterranea blew us away. To be honest, you would never know it was “gluten free.” It’s an awesome place, with or without that moniker. We had the mussels, shrimp risotto, grilled vegetables and yellow rum cake for her birthday dessert. We had a sparkling rose Malbec that was interesting. We would have everything again!

A little about me. My wife describes me as a curmudgeon. I think American BBQ is easily as great a culinary contribution to the world as Italy's pasta or French baking (that might be too generous). I like my steaks to be at least 8 oz, dry aged, and medium rare. Any time somebody says they're vegan, I deeply pity and respect them for denying themselves the most nutrient dense food on the planet in the name of principle.

Mediterranea is basically the opposite of this. Gluten free. Vegan options. Smallish portions. Definitely NOT influenced by anybody asking, "Where's the beef?" Focused on pushing the limits of their patrons' pallettes.

Despite this, when I go there on dates with my wife for dinner, it's typically a decent dining experience for me. If I were more into this genre of food, I'm sure I would really really like it, maybe even love it.

There is one exception to all of this: BRUNCH

The Sunday (Saturday?) brunch at Mediterranea is rock-solid. I'm still a sucker for Waffle House or Homegrown, but if you want a more sophisticated lazy-morning nosh, Mediterranea is a top tier destination. If it's a nice day out, try your darnedest to get seated on the rooftop terrace. And get the French Toast.

The restaurant is entirely gluten-free, which allowed me to relax and not have to scrutinize the menu for my options. Brunch was delicious and the baked goods made me not miss gluten at all. Our server even kept food warm for one in our party who was running late.

Meditteranea is our hands-down favorite restaurant, not only now, but ever. Never disappoints. Always wows guests we introduce to it.

Even though it is a dedicated GF facility, you would never know judging by the menu or the resulting amazing culinary experience.

I have celiac, so it is extraordinary for me to be able to order anything on the menu with the secure knowledge that I am eating without risk of cross-contamination.

We visited NYC recently and traveled all around the city to the dedicated GF restaurants. Mediterranea was better than any of them.

And, by the way, my husband – who does not have GF issues – is a foodie and it is his very favorite restaurant ever, too.
