We ordered the meze platter and took it home. Food was tasty, fresh and healthy, similar to what we've ordered over the years. Unfortunately it was not warm. But still good.;

Made a reservation for 6:00, and was lucky to get street parking not too far from here. Was taking our daughter and friend out to dinner; everyone really enjoyed their meal. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Definitely will return when in...the area!More

The manager is so nice and professional (the rest of the staff too). It was very crowded for lunch today, but he put everyone at ease and pleasantly found tables quickly for everyone. Oh, and the food is great too!

Not too busy. I ordered a more than I could eat in one sitting, but I wanted to try a variety of Middle Eastern foods. I got lamb meatballs, and a filo dough appetizer, and falafel, and hummus, and baba ganoush. Very tasty food. Reasonably...priced. Service was good. I walked out with a doggie bag.More

We are still in the takeaway mode, but this restaurant is in full swing with outdoor dining on their lovely terrace. The Middle Eastern food is reliable and the menu hasn't changed much in many years. Reliable and tasty.

In this time of stay-at-home, we have been ordering take out dinners from local restaurants. It's been a while since we came here, so we gave it another try and they did a good job. Good quality, nice menu. Not many places around with good...Middle Eastern cuisine, this place works.More

We very much enjoyed our Mediterranean platter, which gave us the opportunity to sample lots of great food! Service was great and our meal was delivered lightning fast.

We ordered a large tray of food to take away, but it was not ready at the arranged time. In fact, when I arrived they could not find it and had to start putting it together. So there was a big delay. The staff did...not seem to care at all. The quality was good enough, but I don't think I will do this again.More

I ate here twice while I was in town for a conference and was really impressed both times. They have a great happy hour on select wine and beer and the food is delicious. I ordered the fruit and cheese plate as an afternoon snack...and it was an extremely generous portion of fresh and flavorful fruit. The pita bread and appetizer platter shouldn't be missed. I was with a large group during one visit and we all ordered different things - everything was excellent. Rarely have I had Mediterranean food this good since I was actually in the Mediterranean. Highly recommend it!More

The decor is charming and the potential is great for this restaurant. The food was delicious. We were a party of 8 at 4:00 pm, despite the size service was very slow. There was only one other couple there and a lot of wait staff...hanging around, chatting amongst themselves, yet no one asked if we wanted more water or anything else except to take the order, serve food, take dishes away after we had all been done for 15 minutes. The server gave us our bill 10 minutes after that. Maybe it was a fluke, I don't know.More

We always share food when we're at this restaurant. The platters are large and we get to taste more things. Their falaffel is one of my favorites and if you need more pita bread, we always do, they happily bring more. The hummus is very...tasty as is the tabouli salad. we sat inside, but it can be nice to sit outside if it's not too crowded or too noisy on the street.More

We enjoyed our meal here but it was not as vibrant in Middle East flavors as we’d hoped. It’s a busy neighborhood restaurant but pretty basic.

I've always loved La Med in San Francisco but was disappointed when this one wasn't nearly as good. Now the owner of the one on Fillmore is taking over this one. Can't wait for that terrific Greek Chicken soup to show up over here in...Berkeley. They are keeping it in the family, but this brother seems to really know how to make it happen. It's a comfortable and relaxed environment and lots of locals like to have meals here at all times of the day.More

I don't remember seeing any in the outdoor seating area, but since it is Berkeley I bet it is OK.
