Overall a lovely experience, the kind of waitstaff that gives you space, but is also very attentive. Our waiter gave a wonderful wine recommendation. The food was lovely, I especially enjoyed the gnocchi and panna cotta. It was a lovely restaurant to start off the new year and my birthday. Will dine again!

We had much faster service than we expected to have for a fine dining restaurant, and it was a bit unsettling. I allocated 3 hours for dinner, anticipating the cooks would spend quality time on food reparations. We had 4 people waiting on us and checking on us every 5 minutes, which is atypical in fine dining. We ate everything within an hour. We asked for them to slow down on the food preparation, but they had put it in way ahead. We felt like we were being rushed out of there. However, after we finished dessert, they left us alone, gave us all the time in the world, and even asked if I wanted coffee. Why couldn’t that speed have been present during dinner? The restaurant was barely half full too! Every bite of food we had was outstanding. I do plan on coming back! While I don’t like to feel rushed while I’m eating, it’s good to know of a fine dining restaurant that is considerate of other festivities their guests may have!

Was there at Happy Hour. Menu says there are certain bottles of wine you can order at a discount. Made sure with the waiter this was true, he asked his manager, he came back and said yes, we could get the discount, I made sure of the exact price, and that we could sit at a table. We then ordered food and all together 2 bottles of wine during the Happy Hour. Got the bill, and we were charged the full price for each bottle, when I asked the waiter, he said , uhhhh, well that's what they charge now, they raised the price. No, it was the full price listed on the menu. Not good.

Delicious, great service, beautiful ambiance. We have been here in the summer in their lovely outside garden area, but this was cozy, warm and invited for our table of 8. A really lovely dining experience, and not so expensive considering all they offer.

We decided to try Medi because of the variety on their menu...we wanted a little bit of everything.
The restaurant was PACKED (we made reservations) & our server was very busy but very personable & attentive.
We ordered 1/2 dozen oysters, the lamb chops & the single Ravioli with ricotta & the egg inside. All of the food was EXCELLENT!!! The lamp chops were cooked perfectly & the tzaziki sauce that came with them was amazing!
The single Ravioli with the ricotta & egg has been on my bucket list of things to try at a restaurant & I was not disappointed! The flavor was incredible...so many layers of flavor!!
The restaurant itself is very cozy...a great date spot. The only thing that we weren’t crazy about was that it was incredibly hot inside the restaurant but with so many people inside, I can see how it would be warm!

Food was outstanding! Love the downstairs room -- cozy/cool -- but the lower level was insanely HOT and that distracted from enjoying our meal/drinks...we all shed all the layers we could and were still sweating. But aside from the heat (after we talked to manager they propped a door open and that helped) our meal and the service was excellent. Will return!

I love this place, but usually, I go when the weather is better and I dine in the very pleasant garden area. The indoor pace upstairs is soooooooo crowded and noisy that it detracted from the fine meal. The downstairs area is nice but too claustrophobic for me.

My friend and I dined here during the week. The waiting staff are really nice the food is average to bad. The restaurant next door called Westville is / was packed. To me this place has a nice bar but the food is not good and the wine we got had a lot of sediment in it (not good). I can see why so few people go there.

Went to Medi with a group of 6 (2 other couples in town from Texas) after having dinner at Giordano 54 and learning the two restaurants are connected (legally and physically as their outdoor areas are contiguous).

We were seated immediately at a great area in the basement, near their live music. The wait staff was attentive, and turned out included Phillipe who had been our server at Giordano 54. We had a couple of bottle of Muriel wine that were fabulous, and the different dishes (my wife had the Branzino) and I had the hanger steak. Both were excellent. Our friends all relished their meals as well.

Needed to grab a quick bite before seeing a late jazz set at Dizzy’s Club. The charcuterie was one of the best we’ve ever had and the lamb Kafka was great as well. Great service got us out in time. All in all - awesome!

Delicious menu with a variety of large and small plates and always an excellent fish and pasta special. The back patio is lovely. The waitstaff and management are conscientious and on top of everything. The meatballs, the prosciutto, and mozzarella, beet salad are just some of the dishes to try.

Don't expect to be overwhelmed by the quality, but it's a nice place for appetizers and drinks.

My friend got a a piece of shell stuck in her throat and had to go to the hospital emergency room. She had to stay the night and have a procedure under general anesthesia. But when she got the shell stuck, the management still charged for my meal and wine, and her wine. They did not offer to either comp the whole meal or offer something on the house. The attitude was "you eat shellfish, you risk this" which was very unprofessional. I am traumatized.

An oasis in Hell's Kitchen / Midtown. If you're looking for a nice place to meet up, Medi is a great spot. The back patio is great when the weather is nice! And the food is really good.

Great indoor and outdoor space. Staff are friendly. Food is freshly cooked and they have a great lunch or brunch special. Don’t rush you out of the door like some others. Just moved into the neighborhood and have been there 3 times in 2 weeks. Haven’t been disappointed. Will definitely be a regular.
