One of the few Mediterranean joints that actually serves food close to authentic dishes. I am not saying they are just like your mom's or friend's mom's homemade dishes... But they are as close as you are going to get.\n\nA bit pricey for the broke college student, but well worth it as there are many familiar faces I always see around. Some visits are better than others, but almost always the prices are very fair and justified.\n\nVery friendly and professional servers and bartenders. My experience there is always positive, it is a gem of a restaurant not only on College Ave., but in Berkeley.

I heard so much about them so I decided to give them a try... I have to say I was disappointed. the food was not that good, mixer of sweet and savory that didn't really set very good in my mouth. Also the prices wayyyy to expensive. one time was enough for me.

This place is always lively and nice spot to go to for someone's birthday. Try their dolmas and their cinnamon chicken. Their deserts are so good. Expect a wait.

La Mediterranee has excellent food and it's healthy too. I especially love their avgolmeno chicken and rice with lemon soup. Their fillo rolls stuffed with cheese and/or chicken are delicious.

I would say the food and service here is just average. It's not too expensive, so I'd say it's a decent value.

They're pretty busy on weekends and even some week nights. The street side patio has a nice atmosphere and they have heaters to make it a bit more comfortable in the fall and winter.

I especially like the kebabs.

A nice tip: corkage is *cheap* ($10) so it pays to bring your own bottle of wine. It makes the value proposition a bit sweeter. (They also had this weird Armenian pomegranate wine there - It's so weird I have to try it.)

Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of La Med! I enjoy the Noe St location and when I want to get my shop on, with some yummy food in-between, I head over to the Fillmore St location. So I'm one of thoose city people that scuff at the idea of ""going over the bridge"" for an outing! So I bite my tongue and headed over to La Med to begin my Sunday outing. So when we get there and they don't have La Med's perfect sized lunch menu, which I have ordered from the other two locations on weekends, I knew this place was ""different"". When I asked the waitress why no lunch menu, I was told it was now only dinner. It was 1:15pm! Okay, so I ordered my fave, the chicken kabab with the yummy lemon chicken soup. The other two locations prepare the soup like a puree. Feels great going down! The Berkeley soup was chunky and lumpy with whole pieces of chicken and pasta. The kebab was dry and didn't have that great taste that I'm used too. The lemons were good! In a nutshell, I'll stick to this side of the bay for my La Med fix!

Pros: The location, ambiance and sunny!

Cons: The lack of consistency with the other locations.

I like this place a lot. The service is good and the food is tasty. We got a sampler appetizer and it was fresh and flavorful. Our entrees were tasty and delectable. And the prices are reasonable.

When the weather is good, outdoor seating is a must.

PROS:
CONS: Parking can be nuts

I've eaten at all locations of this restaurant over the years and have always enjoyed my meal. In addition, they have a great menu of catered items, such as chicken cilicia and tiny spanikopita, which I like to get as finger food for parties.

I just read all the reviews and I sort of agree with some of them. The only thing I probably like there is the atmosphere, nice cozy little patio outside and good service. The food is so so. According to one review the chicken is dry, and the lamb kabob lacks flavor, so if you are a meat lover this place may not be the one for you....

I've been here a ton of times and never get sick of the food. Get the sampler appetizer platter which allows you to try everything on the menu. This gives you great variety and you can get a little bit of everything. They have a chicken pie thing that has raisens and chicken in it and is delicious!

The Bay Area is a food mecca, we all know that. And yes, there are plenty of great expensive restaurants out there. But my most important standby is La Med. I have a driving need to eat there at least once a month. My experience with taking people to La Med is this: they either love it or hate it. And I love it. The hummus is so, so yummy, the mediterranean drip coffee, the fabulous chocolate mousse, and my normal entree: vegetarian middle eastern plate. But I used to eat meat here and it was always good too. Only drawbacks I ever noticed: sometimes pita bread isn't the freshest, and their chicken could, at times, be a bit dry. But the ambience -- whether for a nice early breakfast, a leisurely and lovely lunch, or a cozy, romantic dinner -- is tops. Go there!

It;s been over 6 years since I left Berkeley for the ""Big Apple"" but it sure is nice to know that La Med is still around. Great food and a nice Elmwood location

This place is very tasty. Wonderful Mediterranean flavors. The atmosphere is modest with stone floors and high ceiling fans. The prices are very reasonable. My favorite was the Mediterranean Meza. This dish allows you to taste a variety of food offered on the menu. Bottom line, great food, nice prices, relaxing atmosphere. Wonderful hummus, spanakopita, kabobs, and service...
