We chose this place after reading about it in a travel guide; we were not disappointed. We had the chicken with Greek salad - fresh and delicious - and ended with a lovely piece of pistachio baklava. And on top of all this, the prices...More

My office comes here all the time. Sometimes I tag along. I've never had a good meal here. Salads are weird mix of huge cucumbers and lettuce, tons of cheap oil. The humus is bland. The falafel is a crime. How hard could this food...More

Good food, good service hit or miss. Seems to have gone downhill in the service dept. Why they aren't open Saturday lunch we will never understand. Best Mediterranean restaurant in Cola. Though!!

I finally made it to the Mediterranean Tea Room and my only regret is that I didn't make it there sooner. As the name implies, MTR offers a nice menu of Greek fare and also a couple pages of wines. I had the Eggplant Appetizer...More
