We’ve enjoyed Lotus several times for date nights and evenings out with friends. This time we took our kids with Celiac disease and they were very accommodating. My 8 year old said the grilled chicken fingers were a “ten out of ten”. We were able to enjoy creative and seasonal fish dishes while the kids were happy too.
Great service, wonderful quality plates, BYOB. It's a small place, quiet, lots of choices on the menu.
Fresh local food, beautifully and deliciously prepared, awesome tea selection.
Not the best place for babies just FYI to the moms and dads. HOWEVER, definitely a foodie place! Fresh, innovative, hipster chic spot. Live musician. Romantic. BYOB!!!!! I had a great time and will go again. The ribeye was scrum-diddley- umm-ptious. 4 stars!!!
Always love coming to Lotus have never been disappointed!
Second time to Lotus and unfortunately this time did not live up to the last. Food was "ok" (My salmon was burnt on the skin, kale salad was huge but so were the pieces of kale and choco-chip EVOO cake was bland) and service was poor - waitress was flighty at best. Brought us our check before we even got our dessert and we were only one of 3 tables in the restaurant. The atmosphere is great
The food was all very good. I had the 1/2 chicken it was very tender and juicy. My date had the salmon. He loved it.
Food was delicious, service was okay, and the time between appetizers and entree was a bit long. I would certainly have dinner here again simply for the food!
Excellent dinner. Very enjoyable.
We have been faithful patrons. We have always enjoyed the food and the service. The food is perfectly seasoned and portions just right
This was our first time here and we loved it! The food was delicious and the service was amazing! It was my birthday and although we didn’t order dessert, they brought me out a piece of cake with a candle on the house! They also gave me a free sample of “birthday tea”. Additionally, my boyfriend wanted a change to the menu (instead of the salmon he wanted the duck) and they were more than accommodating. I cannot wait to go back to try another entree and the teas!
Great farm to table restaurant. Always a good meal when I am there. Great service. Attentive to special requests due to food allergies. A gem in Media.
NYE, so we have learned to lower our expectations. Lotus did a good job on a tough night. While our entrees were good, the starters and desert were average. Service was good, and the ambience was great. Good place to get your local on, and eat your veggies.
Quaint restaurant, service was excellent. Limited menu options and high cost for meals.
A great farm to table option in restaurant-heavy Media. Great combinations of locally sourced, fresh food. Good changing menu, always something new.
Cozy rustic atmosphere, good food. BYOB. Overall a nice date night for me and my husband.
Simply outstanding! We were 4 diners and very morsel was yummy!
Went with friends for Saturday evening dinner. Our reservation was seated on time. There was a troubadour in the corner near the door which made casual conversation challenging. Perhaps if we were seated further from the live entertainment hearing each other would not have been a problem. The service was excellent. The hostess, waitress, and dining room staff were attentive, informative, and unobtrusive. We ordered 3 appetizers, 4 entrees, and 2 of the same dessert. 2 of the 3 apps were served cold which was not expected since they weren't listed that way on the menu. Roasted squash with barley shouldn't be cold. The dinners were tasty but not in any way exceptional aside from presentation. The dessert was a chocolate sampler including, ice cream, cake, flourless torte, and some other items. It was frozen. We had difficulty cutting it to eat.
If one of the 3 courses were sub-standard I would give them a pass. All 3 were in one way or another average or less than.
Wonderful evening at the Media Jazz Festival.
Thanks for presenting the marvelous Andrea Carlson!
The carrot soup, chicken breast and the roast duck was amazing!
The wait service was exemplary.
Thanks so much!
Excellent food as usual and a great price because if the restaurant week prix fix menu!
Beet cake was delicious and the carrot and coconut milk soup was excellent.
We met friends we hadn't seen in a while. It was restaurant week and the 3 course menu at $45 a person was fabulous. The choices were plentiful, large portions and very interesting, The beet cake and flatbread appetizers were superb. We tried various second courses- carrot coconut soup, potato salad, tofu stack and all were delicious. Our entrees were also great- duck breast, mussels and clams, salmon - cooked amazingly perfect. We enjoyed the food and the byo aspect. Hadn't been here in a while and will definitely return.
Our meals were excellent! Interesting and diverse menu, well prepared food by a chef who can
deliver. One of the best meals we've had in Media. Would definitely go back. Friendly, knowledgeable and attentive waitress
The only minor complaint was the live music. While he was very good, the place is too small
to have live music. For the tables in the front, it's as if the musician is sitting with you, singing and playing, while you are carrying on private conversations and eating your meal.A little off putting.
We wanted a restaurant that provided local fresh produce and high quality food. This place delivers. The food was exceptionalz
Food was excellent! Really outstanding! The salads were fresh and big enough to share. The salmon was perfect, steak was prepared correctly and the flounder was amazing! The service was excellent, all staff friendly and knowledgeable. The live music was not our taste and was a little loud since we were trying to catch up with friends but overall still a great atmosphere. All in all the check was reasonable too! We will definitely return, thanks Lotus!
Great hidden gem in Media
The atmosphere was wonderful, and the food was great
My friends and I enjoyed our experience at Lotus Farm to Table. The food was excellent and the service was great. Seating was a little tight and it was noisy. The decorations were interesting and appropriate. I would go again.
There were 4 of us and we were all disappointed in our meals. Scallop dish was primarily potatoes, pork loin was supposed to be cooked medium but was dry, tough, and fatty. The one unisex bathroom sink handle was broken. Thought is was overpriced and will not return.
A real gem with excellent food and service. BYOB makes it a great value.
It's disappointing when you eat at a farm to table and the waitress doesn't know much about the menu and can't comment much on the food. The food is good and clean, but service needs to improve.
Food was yummy. Decorations are eclectic and I am. It really sure the look they were going for, but somehow not works. Waitress and waiter were friendly and adorable
Wonderful. The good and ambiance was superb. Will definitely return.
I've eaten there for dinner and lunch. Love the healthy food choices. Service has been very good.
The food was fresh, inviting and delicious. There was enough variety to satisfy all four of us.
We didn't try dessert but all of the offerings looked unique and interesting.
Always a wonderful dining experience! Great food with an unusual menu!
Food was lovely. Service was meh at best. The hostess was a little rude and most of their waiters were high school students. However we weren't in a rush and enjoyed the food which was the redeeming factor to the service. Was also pricey which is likely why we won't frequent this place. For a table of two with two small appetizers and two meals we spent 100 bucks after tip.
Novel food ideas and classic dishes perfectly executed
Met my Girl and a good friend for a mid week after work rendezvous. Have been to Lotus on several occasions and never disappointed. Food is creative, and well prepared. The fact it is BYO assures we will like the wine, and check out their events to catch a night when Johnny Never is performing Piedmont Blues in the dining room. It is a treat.
