Medina is my favorite new restaurant for many reasons, starting with the food! I’ve had the shrimp skewer, Medina salad, and the sea bass and all were delicious! It’s fun to split things with a friend, because you’ll want to try as many dishes as possible. The sea bass tagine was perfectly cooked and the recipe was so different from most restaurants, loved the tomato broth and potatoes it was cooked with! The shrimp brochette was also cooked perfectly, it tasted like wood grilled. The Medina salad is simple, but a delicious dressing brings out the taste of the lettuce. (I always love a restaurant that doesn’t use too much dressing.) I’ve also had the smoked eggplant appetizer, which is similar to an olive tapenade, and it was so tasty but the portion was pretty small. There was 3 times the pita with it than here was spread to cover it, but it was only $6. I wouldn’t mind paying a bit more for a larger serving. Like everything else, though, it was so good! Lastly, the cocktails are reasonably priced and I keep coming back for the Med-rim margarita which must have fresh squeezed grapefruit in it...delish!

Last but not least, the service is always kind and perfectly timed, never intrusive, and the low lighting and cozy atmosphere is wonderful.!This is just a great place all around.

Love it!!! A must try!. The ambiance is wonderful. The culinary art is outstandingly amazing. This food is so fresh and the taste and presentation is off the charts. The owner Sam is so welcoming, making sure from beginning to end that we were satisfied. Erasmo our server, was super attentive. He gave great recommendations and presented the food with pride. We will definitely visit again. Whether it's a special occasion or just a night out, you will be glad you made the choice to visit.

This was our second visit to Medina Oven & Bar. This time, we had a group of eight to celebrate two birthdays before heading to the Stars game. Super fun decor. Friendly and helpful staff who patiently explain menu items and offer recommendations. good. Flavorful without over powering. We will be back.

Best Moroccan/Middle Eastern I've had in Dallas. Roasted eggplant with pitas was delicious. Salads were a generous size, fresh and creative. The sauteed calamari was perfectly cooked and had the tomato sauce had a nice bit of heat. Both the beef tenderloin and chicken & apricots served in tagines were superb, although I'd have liked a little more apricot sauce with the chicken. Nice atmosphere and background music. Attentive service.

We came here for my wife’s birthday. I never had the pleasure of eating Moroccan food. It is excellent food! We were a party of six. The decor, hospitality and ambience all top notch. The food was completely satisfying. Never experienced tea like at Medina. Reasonably priced. The music, service all super.
