They know their mediterrean. It is the most authentic as close to grandma's. The hummos is so delcious and the dolmas are great. My fave dish is the leventine meat tarts in phyllo dough. I also love to have it with the lemon and rice soup. I like the prices and they have great wine and beverage selection. It's small and cozy place in the pacific heights area.
This cozy Upper Fillmore cafe features Greek and North African cuisine and comfy outdoor seating..
Like the other branches of this local mini-chain, this popular location has a small, cozy and sometimes cramped dining room. It's often crowded, but the wait for a table is short due to efficient service. On sunny days, grab one of the sidewalk tables and take advantage of the warm weather for a more authentic Mediterranean experience.
A skillful blend of Mediterranean cuisines, the menu here relies heavily on the flavors of Greece and North Africa. Favorites include savory levant sandwiches, traditional Greek phyllo pie and chicken with cinnamon, almonds and chickpeas wrapped in phyllo. A bargain is the Mediterranean meze, an assortment of 10 house specialties including lamb kebabs, dolmas, lemon-scented hummus and tabbouleh. The honey-drenched baklava or datil amandra (warm phyllo filled with dates and nuts) are can't-miss desserts.
Love this place. It is no surprise this place has been around forever. It is small, intimate and consistently good food. Excellent value. Inadvertantly I met the owner and he is super friendly. I will always tell people to come here.
Great food, Great value.. I have started going to La Mediterranee back in college, in their Berkeley location. I just love this place. The Middle Eastern Plate is my favorite, with the pomegranate chicken. The food is great and the service is always good. The Fillmore location is small and comfortable, not the least bit pretentious. Try the desert with dates (can't recall the name), it is so good.
You'll truly feel fulfilled.... This is one of my all-time favorite restaurants in San Francisco. I almost wish that it wasn't as great as it is, so I can begin to explore other restaurants in the area, as well. This is the original store with another one on Noe St. in San Francisco and another one in Berkeley. The original store is the best of them, because they serve MINT TEA (served hot or cold) with free refills. I liken the experience to British High Tea, because I love ordering the VEGETARIAN MIDDLE EASTERN PLATE, even though I'm not vegetarian. The variety of tasty little morsels is unbeatable. The service is also the best at this original location. The people there have always been sweet and personable. It's hard to find good service nowadays, so look no further...this restaurant's got it.
Love it!. A heard of this restaurant through word of mouth. The food and spices are amazing. It is also reasonably priced for both the quality and amount of food you get. I feel as though I am eating more fresh and healthy than I do at most other places. The servers are busy, but I think they do a great job. The manager last time even treated our table to baclava. I would avoid this place (during busy times) if you don't like feeling cramped. It might be the most itty bitty restaurant I have been to, but it is worth it!
Great middle-eastern food, Cozy GEM. This place has been around for a long time, their service and staff's pleasant attitude along with generous portions of great food make this a fantastic place. We often meet friends there and our out of town guests are always impressed. Must try their special lamb dish, also go with house red wine, it is a bargain for a very yummy wine!
Mousaka Special. Great little cozy spot. Service is warm, food is delicious. The Moroccan Tea is slightly sweet and delicious. I had the vegetarian mousaka and it was fluffy and tasty. My husband had the falafal - very nice and served with a unique potatoe salad. They had some nice instrumental music on. It is a romantic spot.
Best Hummus. Great food. The restaurant is a little crammed in the evening, but still delicious. The hummus is so light and fluffy, its amazing!
lovely cosy place. I visited La Mediteranee with a large group and even added more people than our original reservation had set but they had no problem accommadating us even in the small building. Our server was excellent, very helpful and attentive, the food was wonderful and we all had a great dinner. I found it to be a lovely restaurant with great food for a good value.
