interesting food with nice service. They take care in what they make, and they make you feel at home. You will probably want to come back after your first visit to try some more of their interesting and fairly authentic dishes.

This authentic Mediterranean restaurant has wonderful plates to share as well as delightful dinners. The Branzino is as good as any I had in Italy. Not to be missed.

I have been to Mediterraneo about 15 times since it has been in town. I have always loved it. However, I went to lunch with Mom who came in from FL last week for lunch and it's not the same place. The portions are minuscule,...More

My only regret is that I didn’t eat here sooner. We had the pulpo, Mediterranean cigars, the cheese appetizer special, lamb empanadas, and eggplant dish. EVERYTHING was delicious! The service was great, and when I mentioned I had a nut allergy, the chef came out...More

Soft shell crab season. Best I ever have. Great service, excellent food. BYO makes it so much more attractive. If weather is cooperating, have your lunch or dinner outside! I would go back as often as I can!

Heard about this restaurant from friends and finally got to check it out the other night. It's a small cozy restaurant with great decor. One room is more formal, while there is another room less formal. The lights are dimmed creating a romantic feel. The...More

I seldom give a 5 star rating, but this restaurant deserves it, based on our recent dinner. We recently celebrated our anniversary at this warm BYOB bistro in downtown Ridgewood. The decor is classic and understated with some regional decorative accents. The menu is creative,...More

Mediterraneo was created out of a desire to explore and share the unique, seasonal, healthy opportunities of the Mediterranean Cuisine, from the shores of Southern Europe to the coast of North Africa. At Mediterraneo, we carefully and without compromise choose each ingredient for its authenticity, quality, and freshness. We invite you to join us and discover for yourself why in 201 Magazine, Best of Bergen, Mediterraneo has been voted the "Best Mediterranean Restaurant in Bergen County" several years in a row. Whether it's a business lunch, a friends get together, a romantic dinner for two, or a private party, we will make sure to offer you a wonderful dining experience. We recommend the delicious, authentic Spanish tapas, the tender Moroccan lamb tagine with dried fruits and our fresh fish, daily imported from the Mediterranean area.
