Fell below the expectations. Location and ambience is nice. Food is not. It was the worst sandwich if my life essentially due to the stale bread they used.

Mediterra is our family's go-to restaurant in Princeton, everyone finds something they like. Parking is terrific - the municipal parking garage entrance is to the right of the restaurant. A wide variety of excellent food choices, prepared very well. Prices are north of moderate, but not super expensive.

While visiting Princeton on business, I consulted tripadvisor to find this restaurant. Having gotten parking on the street right outside (take lots of quarters), I had a wonderful dinner of perfectly cooked lamb shank, brussels sprouts and polenta. Everything was delicious

I held my husband's 70th surprise birthday party at Mediterra and I can't say enough about the delicious food and outstanding service from our event managers Emily and Sarah, as well as the head wait staff, Josh and his Team. EVERYONE is still talking about the party almost 2 weeks later - it could not have been more perfect. I... More

Usually a good choice for a nice dinner but we were disappointed. My sister and I both ordered the butternut squash soup and it was terrible--watery and tasteless. Really ruined our dinners.

Just had lunch there with my family. Really enjoyed the sauteed sea bass they had on the specials... and of course their bread. Service was excellent! Will definitely go back again!!

We had lunch here. The menu is limited but the bread is great and the food looks like freshly made. Good quantity and great service

If you want to experience a taste of downtown Princeton then you have to visit Mediterra. Drinks and ambience are excellent. They have a great bar and very nice decoration. I have ordered steak and wanted it well done... it always came back charred and really not worth the effort. If I am not mistaken the waiter mentioned that he... More

I have been eating at Mediterra since it opened but if you haven't eaten there recently you are missing some new high notes in their food quality. Mediterra continues to have world-food with some favorites from the Americas (North Central & South) East and SE Asia, a few Indian influenced dishes and Middle Eastern as well. The chef has done...
