    Very slow service. Food was cold. Out of staple brunch drinks(Bloody Mary) and other ones took 30 mins. Need more employees to make this happen.

    The restaurant and the food were great except for the end of the night. We had a 6:45 reservation. We finished dinner and ordered dessert. We also ordered a couple rounds of drinks. When they brought desert they told us that they needed the table and we needed to finish up. They rushed us through desert. When we paid the bill they awkwardly came up and told us we needed to vacate the table and could we move to the bar. We were still finishing our drinks. It was very awkward. I felt that they could have offered a round of drinks. It was the only disappointing part of the night. They could have prefaced the night with disclosing a 2 hour maximum.

    Came on a Friday night for a double date. The vibe is really cute, and the cocktails are so good. Try the date went sour! Service was a bit slow, and entree orders were wrong but promptly fixed. Would recommend the hummus (comes with pita), the falafel (crispy/fresh), and fattoush salad. The chicken shawarma was dry and underwhelming, but swapped house salad for the rice for no charge, which was nice. Overall fine, but would only come back for apps and cocktails.

    Cute spot. Unfortunately it smelled a little funky when we walked in (seemed like poor air filtration system). Servers were polite however they were slightly understaffed so sometimes slow on service. Aps and entrees came out at the same time which was odd. Food was nice, but nothing special / worth going out of your way to have again.

    I’ve eaten plenty of Mediterranean food before I just did not think it was that good I’m not sure if they were shortstaffed, but it was very hard to get the waitresses attention. Presentation was nice on Beyoncé is very nice.

    Came for restaurant week. Brunch is going to be gentrify any non-American food which I expected as much. Menu overpromises and uses culinary techniques to mislead customers into thinking that they would experience a perfect melding between American and Mediterranean cuisine ex: baklava French toast was toasted bread with green colored whipped cream cheese. Does not taste like pistachio. It’s not French toast style nor uses French bread like a brioche. Shakshuka eggs were poorly poached and mezzes are average. If you’re looking for a fresh take on Mediterranean cuisine, I would say not here respectfully. Come for the ambiance and bring good company. You won’t pay attention to the food then

    Medi is a cute spot with a quirky wine selection, tasty cocktails, and mostly great food. The host and our server were very attentive and kind. My only knock is the chicken shewarma because the texture is so odd. It feels like it sat in lemon juice or something too long because of how much it got broken down. Avoid that entree and you'll have a good time.

    Went to MEDI for Restaurant Week brunch. Nylah was our server & she was fabulous! Everything we ordered was delicious & presented beautifully. The Arabic coffee (bonus points for flawless presentation!), shakshuka, falafel eggs benedict, eastern spiced chicken & waffles, homemade hummus, fava bean stew. Will definitely return for dinner!

    The food here was EXCELLENT! The hummus was divine along with everything else we ate. My cocktail (the elia) was also excellent and clearly well made and thought out! However, service was slow and while our waitress was very pleasant, it took us a long time to get our food and move through the dining process. This WILL NOT impact my decision to return though because the ambiance and food were just divine! Get ready to enjoy a lovely meal and setting, for a long time!

    Food was delicious. Staff was very nice but the service was extremely slow. We were not seen until 25 minutes after being seated despite talking to the hostess on two separate occasions - they did comp our first round of drinks which was very nice. The service was extremely slow and the tables were very close together to the point that we could not get out on one side when a party of 5 was seated at a table meant for 4. Overall would not recommend to anyone.
