Service hits the sweet spot between hovering and neglectful. Information about dishes is readily available, as it a very accommodating attitude towards patrons. And the menu!

Took a close friend out for lunch in downtown Berkeley on College Ave yesterday! What a treat! The portions are large so 3 adults shared 2 main courses of some of the freshest and tastiest Mediterrenean food ever! Meat torts in flaky crusts, beef kebobs, light and dark flat breads, wonderful sides with Armenian potato salad or curry rice, and... More

What makes a great local restaurant? Terrific food that you can count on. We're going to the movies on College avenue and want something to eat, or meet a friend for lunch. La Mediterranee has been on College avenue forever and we've eaten there that long. I'm amazed about the poor service comments. Pleasant people who take my order and... More

We ordered takeout and came in with a $10 restaurant.com voucher. The nice man at the front said they do not honor the voucher for take-out which I understand IF THE VOUCHER MENTIONS THIS which it did not. He said 'oh we don't take this for take-out, we've been trying to get them to change it...sorry we don't take it'.... More

Lebanese food. Lively, informal, young clientele. Indoor/ outdoor seating, good service. Worth a stop in Berkeley.

We were on our way to see a show at the Berkeley Playhouse and decided to try this place for dinner since it's walking distance to the theater and parking can be tricky. The food was fantastic and came up quickly. The service was terrific even had time for a dessert coffee.

Thee are not many nice restaurants in Berkeley. This one is full of atmosphere, and their platters offer a nice variety of small portions of fresh and tasty food. We liked it enough to go back three times in one week.

Beirut by way of California. We ate here with my daughter who has been to Beirut and loves the food. This is very authentic and delicious food. The waitpersons are mostly family and our waitress should look to another career before it is too late.

Menu and quality has not changed over the years. Very reliable and tasty Middle Eastern cuisine, a place we go to for take-out. Prices are a bit high for what you get, but always good.
