It was just ok for us. A little pricey for the food you received. Kind of bland. I wouldn't go back.

Bistro Mediterranean is by far the best restaurant in East Haven and as good or better than anything in New Haven. The tapas are very creative always. We especially like artichokes and Brussels sprouts salad. But it's hard to rate above anything else.

The service was terific! The owner makes sure he introduces himself to everyone. The food is out of this world. I love the ambiance. It is just a great place to stop and have a great lunch or dinner, and drink.
