Sahara Restaurant

18 September, 2015 | Indian, Mediterranean | By: Mrs Z

Sahara Restaurant, while not much to look at from the outside (or inside for that matter) turned out to be pretty good.  I have to admit that had this been my “night to pick”, I’m pretty sure I would have turned tail and ran, but this is supposed to be, after all, an adventure.  That […]

Mezza Mediterranean Cuisine

9 September, 2015 | Mediterranean | By: Mrs Z

We weren’t too sure what to expect of Mezza, so it really didn’t disappoint except for the fact that they have no liquor license, but given the type of place it is; we really shouldn’t have expected it (hopeful maybe, but not really a disappointment).  Mezza is located in a little strip center on Center […]

Mia Bella

8 August, 2012 | Italian, Mediterranean | By: Mrs Z

Located in the heart of Cleveland’s “Little Italy” neighborhood at 12200 Mayfield Road; this was truly a great find!  Aside from the phenomenal menu (a very cool mix of Albanian, Italian and Mediterranean selections), the recently-renovated interior is absolutely gorgeous!  We, however, took advantage of the lovely weather and sat outside at a table that was surprisingly comfortable, as most […]

Dervish Mediterranean Grill

27 March, 2012 | Mediterranean | By: Mr Z

Definitely my kind of place (must have been my lucky day). A cute, authentic looking little Mediterranean cafe in a strip center right off of 83. The service was very good, but the food was EXCELLENT (at least from my perspective). Although they had no liquor license, we were allowed/encouraged to go a couple of doors […]

Via Van Aken

10 February, 2009 | Mediterranean, Traditional / American | By: Mrs Z

We can’t even remember what we ordered or how it was because this was truly the worst restaurant experience we’ve ever had.  From the minute we walked in (with a reservation) and were ignored for at least 30 minutes; then finally seated and seriously – completely overlooked until we had to practically grab a server’s […]


1 July, 2008 | Fine Dining, Italian, Mediterranean, Steak / Seafood | By: Mr Z

A wonderful place with a great atmosphere and excellent food.  The menu was very broad with everything to steaks and seafood, to some very creative and interesting dishes.  This would definitely fall under the “white tablecloth” category, but we were made to feel very comfortable and the owner/chef personally visited each table and greeted the guests […]

Boulevard Blue

13 May, 2008 | Bistro, Mediterranean, Steak / Seafood, Traditional / American | By: Mrs Z

This place was phenomenal and absolutely packed – surprising for a Tuesday night.  Nevertheless, the service was excellent; the atmosphere wonderful and the menu selection was pretty extensive.  They have a pretty diverse menu and both entrees (a chicken dish and a seafood dish) were very good.  Reasonable prices, but tough to find a parking spot […]


4 March, 2008 | Mediterranean, Spanish | By: Mr Z

Amazing place (right on Shaker Square), both for it’s food and service.  Sort of a Spanish / Meditteranean theme but outstanding service and we loved our dishes.  Would definitely go back!

Aladdin’s Eatery

29 January, 2008 | Greek, Mediterranean | By: Mr Z

This was one of those places where we were pretty much split right down the middle.  While I didn’t love the entree I ordered (a chicken dish that was somewhat dry and tasteless), I did love alot of the other things on the menu (hummus, pitas, etc.).  He just plain didn’t like anything there, and didn’t […]

Anatolia Cafe

11 December, 2007 | Mediterranean | By: Mrs Z

Turkish….Lebanese…..we aren’t quite sure what type of food this was!  It was okay (from my perspective only) but definitely not worthy of a return visit.
