Diner Reviews
  • "Great atmosphere, the staff was extremey friendly, i needed ta ride to get to Cobb Center to catch a show and they made it happen."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "It was alright. We went there for appetizers and wine before a show. There weren't many customers, but we had to wait quite a while for someone to seat us even though we had a reservation. The server was nice, but moved like molasses. I had to ask for the wine list, to which the waiter made a few suggestions. I had to ask for the wine list again before being allowed to see one which I thought a little odd. We were not bothered and no one was rude, just extremely slow. If you are in a hurry or on a schedule, perhaps find another establishment."

  • "Although the hostess was exceptionally nice our waiter was a little non attentive. He could not read the menu and answer my questions because he did not have his glasses? I thought that odd. The food , at least mine, was just mediocre. I would probably not eat here again."

  • "This is my third time here and I still can't figure out why the service is so bad. Each time I've been here it's been a self-serve experience...and the place isn't ever busy. Maybe they watch their labor costs TOO much...but something is definitely wrong. The food is actually good...nothing over the top great, but good enough. It's quiet and you can actually have a conversation at dinner without too much noise. Too bad they don't have any servers around to bring you food and drink. :("

  • "I count on Open Table to accurately describe finer restaurants. The food was mediocre at best, the atmosphere bright, much like an airport restaurant or cafeteria. My husband's filet was overcooked and his salad was very strange with meats mixed in the chopped salad. My rigatoni was very good but the atmosphere so common, with booths like a soda shop and lighting like a doctors office. Had I realized this was a hotel restaurant, we would have never fought the traffic to get there with all of the other choices in Atlanta."

  • "Food was excellent. Waiter was very attentive. Food prep time was abysmal. The place had few customers at the time."
    Dined on 9/25/2013
  • "My wife and I enjoyed dinner here. I had the finest risotto I've ever eaten, she has a pasta dish that was good but not noteworthy. Salads were outstanding. The wine list was a bit modest, but I appreciated the wealth of selections in the $30 - $35 range. Service was exceptional. Atmosphere was OK. A bit bright for my liking, and not enough separation from the bar. I will never rate a restaurant as excellent if I can see a TV - even from 50' away. I believe TV and dining ambiance are mutually exclusive."

  • "Medici is one of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta. The food is always excellent and prepared under the watchful eyes of Exec Chef Tim and Chef Steve. My last visit I had the Pork Tenderloin and it would melt in your mouth. Any time I am in Atlanta I make it a point to eat here. It's in the Atlanta Renaissance Marriott hotel and I don't know why there are not more locals there on a regular basis. It's fairly priced and the food and service is excellent."

  • "Food was amazing. No complaints However, we went on a Tuesday night (relatively dead) and we were there for a birthday. The server rushed through everything. It was a large party, so she should have felt comfortable that she was going to receive a big tip. She took the appetizers away without asking, and most were only half eaten. She kept coming back while the entrees were out asking if anyone was done. While I know its tacky to bring a cake to a restaurant, we had also just ordered well over $300 in food and drinks. She was so annoyed that she brought the check and forced the person to sign IN FRONT OF HER!. She was rude and obnoxious, and almost ruined the whole experience of the restaurant. The saving grace of the place was the food."

  • "Took my grandparents here when they visited Atlanta. Didn't know it was in the lobby of a hotel until I googled the address. Had a Friday night reservation at 7pm -- almost empty and very quiet (which was good for grandparents). Good food; I got the grilled salmon and my only compliant was that it was drenched in olive oil (the dish sat in a pool of olive oil; I had to wipe the salmon off). Our waiter was friendly but didn't provide much insight into the menu. Dessert was delicious, and so was the bread basket (freshly baked and warm). Not sure if I would go back, probably only if the party I was with wanted a quiet place to eat."
    Dined on 6/21/2013
  • "It was a very mediocre experience. The service was very good but the food was very overpriced. The bar was nice but they went light on the pours. Dessert was spectacular."
    Dined on 6/15/2013
  • "The menu was very limited. I ordered a chicken dish but received another grilled dish. It was good burnout much variety!"
    Dined on 5/4/2013
  • "Was there for a small group dinner meeting. The food was excellent. The area was a little loud, but overall it was a great experience. Would go back again."

  • "Still lovin those bbq chips! Please find a well to sell them, if even only to me!"

  • "Decent menu , reasonably priced ,fair wine list ,very goog service would dine there again"
    Dined on 3/15/2013
  • "Food was good. Nothing outstanding or surprising, though. What I'd expect from a Marriott hotel restaurant."
    Dined on 3/2/2013
  • "terrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrriiiiible service!!! Dont ever go there if you would like to be on time to a performance!!! The staff is just sooooo rude. The waiter could not even split a bottle in 4 checks and the manager just ignored us when we wanted to let her know of the problem! This place should close down!!!!"
    Dined on 2/16/2013
  • "Ate here for Valentine's, after neglecting reservations. Party of six. Drinks, then dinner. Overall experience very good. Great bartender, nice room, and excellent Italian food. Very, very good for a hotel restaurant. I'd go back."
    Dined on 2/14/2013
  • "Medici hits the mark each and every time. The Medici house chips are so good I crave them! The staff is friendly and attentive. A great little spot for lunch."
    Dined on 2/1/2013
  • "Our first time dining at Medici's was not as we expected. The best part was the Chef greeting us at the entrance. He offered a suggestion for the night's dining.....the scallops which I chose and a little bland...but just ok. My wife order a three cheese pizza., which was excellent. The service was absolutely bad. The meal was served and the waiter never really came back to ask if we wanted a glass of wine or another beer. When he did come back he said "all set?" and left the bill $50.80 on the table. The last insult was the valet parking fee which was collected,$10.00 plus a tip. The attendant was very polite and parked our car in a front space."
    Dined on 2/1/2013
  • "The food was only ok and the server was not interested in waiting me at all, was it because I was a party of one? I had to keep looking around for him and when he did come by it was to pick up or drop off a plate. I may have scored the food and overall experience higher if I had an even decent time."
    Dined on 1/22/2013
  • "Although the service was attentive and the resturant comfortable, to call Medici an "Italian Resturant" is inaccurate. It is a hotel resturant that has usual hotel fare with pizza thrown in at the price of a good Italian Resturant. There are many other true Italian resturants nearby that have more selection, more food and for less costs."
    Dined on 1/16/2013
  • "If you're looking for a last-minute, romantic spot, then Medici is your place. Don't be in a hurry though. The food was amazing. It was new years, so their menu was limited to certain selections. Those selections were very good though."
    Dined on 12/31/2012
  • "Three reasons for going to Medici's: 1) It was our daughter's 18th birthday. 2) We had never been to Medici's before & like to try new places. 3) Daughter has been to Italy and loved Tuscan-flavored food. Medici's met every one of our expectations and more in food & service."
    Dined on 12/15/2012
  • "The lamb was severely undercooked (we were going to a show and I didn't have time to send it back). The rest of the food was so-so. My wife's scallops were pretty good but had some sand. The spinach salad was wilted. The first time we ate there (6 mos. prior) the food was really good. This time...not so much. We wouldn't go back."
    Dined on 11/16/2012
  • "We were somewhat disappointed as it ended up being a hotel restaurant. Ok if you are staying there and don´t want to go out, but not the type of place you want to go for a week-end meal. The food was average. For an Italian restaurant, the menu offering of pastas was surprisingly limited and not very appealing. One can find much better italian food in any Maggiano´s or Carraba´s. The service was very good and the ambiance was what you would expect of a hotel restaurant."
    Dined on 8/3/2012
  • "Probably will not eat here again the food was good but the service sucked."
    Dined on 4/3/2012
  • "Food was good, albeit at hotel prices. Service was polite but excruciatingly slow."
    Dined on 7/9/2012
  • "Had tickets to Cobb Energy Center and needed a nice dinner pre concert. Fit the bill but had to remind our server we were in a hurry. Perhaps if we had more time to linger, we would have enjoyed it more, but it was quite good all around."
    Dined on 5/9/2012
  • "Average food. Nothing bad but also nothing special."
    Dined on 5/13/2012
  • "This is fine dining, the restaurant being in a very fine hotel. Food was very good. Service was also very good. Prices were comparable to other fine-dining restaurants we have been to in the area. The only negative thing we can say is the restaurant adjoins the bar/cocktail lounge in a large open area, and the noise from the bar carried over into the restaurant. Based on reviews we read we expected a very nice restaurant and Medici met our expectations."
    Dined on 4/30/2012
  • "This is a hotel restaurant. It should be noted in the review that it is fine for people who happen to be staying at the Waverly, but it is not a where one should go for a date if you live in Atlanta! There happened to be a very loud group the night we were there so that colored our experience in a negative way."
    Dined on 4/9/2012
  • "I liked Medici, however, I wasn't aware that it was inside Waverly Renaissance hotel. I usually prefer standalone restaurants but it was ok. The food was really tasty."
    Dined on 4/1/2012
  • "Nothing I read told me this resturant was IN a hotel. I would have prefered a standalone....the online menu is not current. I went specifically for the seabass and they no longer served it. I ended up ordering scallops and they were quite chewy and hard. Very unimpressive...No where near worth the price."
    Dined on 3/25/2012
  • "It was a pleasurable experience and my date loved it. I am a bit of a foodie and my grilled chicken was a bit bland. I will go back and try other items on the menu."
    Dined on 2/18/2012
  • "The food was good however I didn't think it was any better or worse then other similar priced restaurants. I would eat there again but not sure I would crave it."
    Dined on 2/14/2012
  • "The resturant was very nice and elegant. I thought wow, this is going to be great! The food was excellent, cooked to perfectly and tasted like it should. The whole setting was nice, calm, and relaxing. Just what I was looking for on Valentines Day with my lovely girlfriend. The only thing was, our service was not nearly as good as I thought it would be. The manager was wonderful and very nice, but our waitress, not so much. She acted like she didn't want to be at work and only checked on us about 3-4 times during the evening, which was disappointing. Overall the resturant was excellent, just wish the service would have matched how good the food was."
    Dined on 2/14/2012
  • "We arrived at the time of our reservation and stood in front of an empty maitre d' station for several minutes. When the host finally arrived, we were ignored until everyone else had been seated. Once we were seated, the server brought some water and left without asking for a drink or appetizer order. 15 minutes later, she returned to take our orders, but had very little knowledge of the menu, wine list, or bar selections. There was a loud child in the booth adjacent to us, which did not help matters. The server was untrained. Our water was never refilled. The scallops were overlooked and rubbery. The steak was mediocre at best. Olive garden would've been better."

  • "Honestly, I tried Medici because I waited so late to book for Valentines Day. I was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere, very impressed by the food and enjoyed the quiet nature of the dining room. Wasn't ultra crowded, even on Valentines day, but I only think it was due to the fact hat it is inside a hotel. The food was great! Braised duck was amazing and my wife loved her lobster tortellini. We don't get out much, but I'd go back for sure."
    Dined on 2/14/2012
  • "Perfect for Valentines day dinner. No noise, great food, really nice service and comfortable accommodations. Urge people to try this place."
