Walked in, greeted & seated quickly. Got waters fast. Then the wheels came off.

Waited 15 mins, tried to flag down folks, no one stopped or came by…patience expired so we left…no one noticed.

Looked like a cool spot. Unfortunately poor experience means basically no chance of going back.

We always enjoy Medina — the food is very good, and the service is friendly. However, service was just a bit off the night we dined. Asked for salt and pepper three times - never received it. Asked for a bourbon and soda - received a tequila and soda. Asked for another glass of wine - never received it. Will it stop us from dining there again? Absolutely not! The food and friendliness outweigh these minor issues.

We made a reservation to sit outside, but the host didn't recognize the reservation. He placed us outside, which was nice, although the only table he offered us was at the entrance even though most was open (he claimed a big party was coming, so I understood and had no problem). But then, not much else happened. The host gave us our menus and a busser ( waiter?) our waters. We tried to ask the busser if he could take our order but he said he'll get someone for us. The waitress then ignored us. She talked to all of the other diners (only three other parties, all in pairs) but we weren't even acknowledged. She kept her back to us and never once approached our table. Perhaps it wasn't her area, but maybe just let us know because she was the only one there? Every other worker was inside. We wore our masks and we were friendly and kind to everyone we interacted with, we made no demands, and the place wasn't 'slammed' with business, so I am at a loss what we did to deserve being ignored like that. All that was needed is her to say, I see you. We felt rejected, so we walked away about ten minutes after getting the waters without having ordered anything. I looked forward to eating here and am really disappointed in the weird vibe - it felt as if we didn't belong. And we've been downtowners since the 1990s.

Great food but a poor service performance for multiple tables around us. We did not see our waiter again after placing our order. Service seemed to be chaotic and they brought our entrees out twice while other tables had to ask to check on their food. We had to ask the food runners and hostess multiple times for our check. They seemed overwhelmed by their proximity to AAC and not prepared to handle their capacity. That being said, the food was fantastic and it was so nice to enjoy the patio. I would consider them again on an evening where there were no large events.

The food is delicious and the cultural ambience is very cool. The waitstaff is friendly though too laid back and seem to only focus on the larger tables. We were there an hour before we even got our wine. We understand that restaurants are understaffed these days but they were unapologetic for long waits and never picked up a single dish from our table. We didn't have a bad time...it was just a 3 hour experience that should have been half of that. Waitstaff were not wearing masks. I highly recommend the restaurant but be prepared for longer than usual wait times.

First of all let me say that we love this place. The food is first class and the service is (usually) great.
On our latest visit however, a very noisy group of 20-25 people came in about halfway through our meal. The service we were getting was suddenly nonexistent as the wait staff concentrated on the large party. I had to ask 3 times for our drinks to be refilled and our dessert order never materialized, so we paid our tab and left.
I am sure this was a one off incident and we will definitely return, but maybe they need to rethink seating such large parties if it means neglecting their other customers.

Great food drink and ambiance. Everything I’ve had was excellent.

I do wish they had a chicken, beef or lamb pastilla. I’ve only seen seafood pastilla on the menu.

Medina is always a wonderful place to have an enjoyable dinner whether you are eating light before a performance or having a leisurely meal. The menu is varied--appetizers, salads, pizzas, tagines. The service is quietly unobtrusive, and the decor and music make for a pleasant dining experience. You can actually talk to the people you are with.

We loved it! This was our first time to dine at Medina and the waitstaff was so welcoming and hospitable. The waiter went over the menu and made great recommendations. The food was delicious. My husband had the lamb and it was tender and so flavorful. My chicken tangine was also wonderful. We were almost 30 minutes late for our reservation but they were very gracious. Needless to say we were a little frazzled trying to find parking, but we were so glad we made it. We are looking forward to returning and trying more of the menu.

I had a wonderful meal with 2 friends. We shared the Cheese Cigars for our appetizer. One of my friends and I split the Seafood Pastilla and the the Lamb couscous. They were both delicious.
We sat on the patio which was very comfortable and shaded, although a little warm.
The service was excellent.

Food is absolutely incredible. Service was so kind and the atmosphere was very cool.. I just wish the dining area was air conditioned. It was uncomfortably warm in the Dallas heat. For this reason, I’d come back but only in the winter.

We have been eating at Medina for years for special occasions. It's been about a year or 15 months or so since the last time we went. Things have changed there. For one thing, now they have some sort of ethnic music playing constantly. It kind of felt like we were in Beirut or somewhere like that. The food is still good. The service was okay. It just has a bit of a different feel to it. Maybe it's brighter? I cannot really put my finger on it, but we may or may not try it again.

Food and drinks were great. Service was lacking. It is a small restaurant, however one server for the entire place is not good.
