    The waitstaff were so unpleasant that it ruined the experience. The bloody mary's tasted like juice. The garden, although pretty, did not save us from having a down time because of the horrible/uncomfortable atmosphere. Definitely do not recommend for brunch.

    I went there on a Friday night and it was an incredible place to have a nice romantic evening. We sat outside in their garden patio area, which has a nice calm ambience with a fountain spouting in the background. The food was incredible. I had the sea bass and my partner had the gnocchi. Delicious! Our server was a bit overworked, but he was very courteous and took care of us. I recommend this place!

    Recently, I had lunch with my co-workers (Total 8) and it was just ok. I understand 8 people lunch for a table would be little much on weekdays, but they could handle. Outside sitting was ok, but they need more shadow area or parasols. It was hot and food came late. They did not even serve the bread before I asked them. Also, they should bring a cold water on a hot day instead of the warm water. Salad was salty. Also, I asked them added meat balls on my calamari salad and waitress said she would ask and let me know. She brought my salad at the last of our order out of 10 and said Chef cannot put some meat balls on my salad. Why? why them did not tell in the beginning? Then, I can order as separate order instead of waiting until last.

    Medi is a welcome restaurant on 9th Avenue. The Mediterranean food is excellent with a wide variety of fish, vegetable and meat choices...perfect for a crowd who appreciates well flavored simple cuisine. The grilled octopus small plate and lamb main dish were our favorites. They also have a weekday wine bottle special for $25.

    Having eaten at the restaurant 2 times i was sure of a good meal however I was proven wrong. two of the fish dishes were under seasoned and inedible. The pork chop special was over cooked and encased in a tough outer shell reminiscent of a fried armadillo. Our waiter disappeared for half an hour after we came in and was nowhere to be found, not to mention the high volume of ambient noise in the dining room. An experience not to be repeated.

    We had a terrific dinner here including a great bottle of wine, appetizers and of course, fantastic mains. Very helpful and friendly service. The only drawback, if I had to find one, is that it was a bit loud making conversation difficult - by no means is this a deal breaker, just something to keep in mind.

    This place was great! I had a Greek salad as an appetizer. It was delicious, and the portion was rather large. For dinner a friend and I split a special pasta. This was a perfect portion. One of my friends got the pre fixe, so we all tried her dessert and it was amazing (chocolate cake). The waiter was also very helpful in recommending things and accommodating us. I definitely recommend this restaurant!

    We waited over 1 hour and 15 minutes for a risotto dish and asked the waitress to check on it three times as the other dishes were already delivered 30 minutes earlier. She kept saying, "It's coming". We appreciate if a kitchen is busy, but she was quite rude, short and should not have lied if it was not ready. The two people sharing the dish had to wait about 30 minutes longer than the rest of us, which was extraordinary. Shame on her for bad service, as we otherwise enjoyed the ambiance / food.

    A long overdue girls night out was on the schedule for a Friday night, and I wanted a restaurant where we could eat well and not be rushed. Medi was perfect! They seated me as soon as I arrived, even though my party wasn't complete, at a quiet table in the basement. We sat there from 7 until 11 without ever being made to feel unwelcome. Granted, the bill came to $125 per person, but even equally expensive restaurants will throw blatant hints that they want to turn the table over. I greatly appreciated the consideration Medi showed. Not to mention that the duck tagliatelle, the brussels sprouts, and the chocolate cake were all outstanding.

    Creative, inventive Mediterranean menu. Half portions of several dishes make it perfect for tapas-like grazing. Great wines available by the glass including a fantastic Slovakian sauvignon blanc. Try the fresh pappardella with a duck ragout, grilled octapus and baby spinch salad. Fantastic outside garden, so unexpected in HK. Service is exceptional. Great place for a romatic date!

    We came in 8 minutes late to our reservation after calling and were immediately led downstairs to our table. We told them we needed to get to a show and they recommended looking at the small plates side of the menu. We moved fast and they did too! We got a bottle of wine that was opened almost immediately, and a bunch of small plates, telling them to send everything out as it was ready. The food came quickly, one dish after another. The brussels sprouts were amazing, the sausage and broccoli rage disappeared like it was never there, and the tomato and Albanian bruschette was perfectly balanced. Service was fast and attentive but not annoying. Granted, we were easy and they didn't have to do much. Would love to come back for a coursed meal.
