Food was amazing! Ambiance and service was great! Did have a bit of a wait after asking for time to look over menu. Food is made fresh as your order, so expect a bit of a waiting time too, but it’s worth it! Definitely will be back!

This was a very good resturant. The food was exceptional but the portions were not equivalent to the price. The service was good but the language barrier was hard to over come at times. Overall I highly recommend if you enjoy Moroccan food!

The chicken tagine is extraordinary! I like it when they keep their lights low rather than turned up. It’s better ambience at night.

There have been many changes since our last visit; however, they are minor. The food is still just as delicious and some dishes are even better!! We will be back and more often to ensure the success of this restaurant!

Fantastic as usual! The Mid-Rim salad with sea-bass (or really any protein you choose) is one of my fave salads in town - and the appetizer plate and kababs were delicious as well. Ending with Moroccan hot tea on a chilly night was a perfect ending.

I was disappointed with the sausages - very thin and flavor wasn’t as expected, salad had a regular mesclun mix you can get at Kroger... Portions were small and with no accompaniments, Labne and hummus was good. The menu available on their website wasn’t the menu that was given to us upon arrival (some dishes where unavailable), they need to update the website. No wine list, although there’s a bar.
They could be better if more attention is payed to these smaller details.
All that said we could be back.

Medina has great food, a cool middle eastern vibe, and nice servers. There is also a nice patio with lots of outdoor seating. The night we were there, Medina was struggling with the amount of kitchen staff (1 person) and 2 servers. They recognized the issue, and we enjoyed a very leisurely dinner. Be patient with them during this COVID time.

The restaurant was excellent as far as food was concerned, except it seemed that the restaurant was a little smoke from the cooking. The ventilation could have been better. I definitely would recommend the restaurant.

the waitress was coughing, hacking the entire time - all over the restaurant. Even if it wasn't a covid situation, should this person actually be working? I felt nervous and uncomfortable the whole dinner.

This restaurant is a gem. The food was authentic and delicious.
The owner stopped at our table to introduce herself which in the world of today is quite unusual. Yes, people care.
I wish them the best of luck for the future.
I was passing thru Dallas on a work event and I will most definitely be back.

We went before the symphony. It’s a small place, so I’d advise reservations. I always enjoy this place because it’s quiet and relaxed, with a nice casual ambiance. We also took a ride share because parking is not great here, but everything about the restaurant itself is terrific. Try the Moroccan wine with your tagine.

We were met instantly and seated right away by very friendly wait staff. Our server was Ismael who was funny, knowledgeable, and gave us some great suggestions. The tagine Sea Bass was beyond amazing and the filet tagine with couscous was amazing. The bartender made the most wonderful Moroccan Manhatten. It was a really fun evening! I recommend it to anyone who loves great food!

The space was small but very well decorated and still comfortable. The staff were efficient but very attentive; our waiter even spent time after the meal validating our parking ticket - smiling the whole time. The food was excellent and was brought out in a timely manner. All around it was an excellent experience, and we plan to return when we visit Dallas again!
