Second visit, but my first was a number of years ago. We had the hummus & pita appetizer, the goat cheese filled phyllos, chicken apricot tagine, seafood pastilla and the chocolate cake w/ 3 mousses. Hubby also got the honey tea 'sexy drink'. Everything was great. We sat on the patio since the weather was lovely and it was super pleasant. Our server was great even though she was new. No complaints at all. The entrees were bigger than we were expecting so we were pretty pull, luckily the cake wasn't huge. We probably could have gone with just one appetizer and I'd go with the phyllos because they're more unusual and they are amazing. I'd order either of the entrees again. Hopefully it won't be as long until our next visit. Great ambience for date night!

Authentic and creative Turkish food. Lovely atmosphere. Have tried several different entrees served in tagines and all are outstanding. The sauteed calamari appetizer is another stand-out item! If the tagines weren't SO good, I'd sample several appetizers for dinner. Medina is far above the usual hummus and kabobs restaurant.

Return guest. Last time was over a year ago. Food n attention to detail showed in the food. Owner was present n working hard to make our food awesome. Even though our table was not ready, we were reserved 2 spots at the bar to guarantee us our concert time. Excellent. Will return sooner than later.

Medina is a small cozy restaurant that was turning away walking on a Saturday evening, so get a reservation. The Morracan influence is present throughout the menu. Is great for a date night or small table of four. Have been there several times and never disappointed.

We found Medina to be very over priced for the dining experience. The food was pretty good, not excessively exceptional. The drinks were good, the wait staff pretty good, but he had dirty fingernails which was concerning. It was just not memorable at all.

We were attending a concert and Medina was close for dinner. They did a great job at recommending dinner items to order and promised we’d be out in time for our show. Food was really good and our server did a great job. This was our 4-5th visit and has always been consistently good. We enjoy the intimacy of the restaurant.

Our server was good. He was alone and got busy halfway through our meal. The other staff was really rude. He asked us to get out of the restaurant so he could mop after our server told us to go in, he interrupted our conversations to clear the table, he cleaned windows of the doors and made my guests wait in the cold until he was done, he looked annoyed when we asked for something. The food was over priced, small portions and not exceptional as many reviews suggest.
