Flamur was our server. He was so personable and always checking on our table. Food is always outstanding. Love the outdoor garden seating in NYC. We’ve been coming to Medi for 5+ years and always good and we call our spot!!!!!

The food was really lackluster and the restaurant seemed deserted - only one waiter.

The garden is cute and the service was fairly attentive. That said, we specifically mentioned we had made a reservation and I still got a notification that we had missed our reservation.

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.

Great food and service. A little loud if you want somewhere quiet to talk, but nice if you enjoy being around energy and good conversation.

There needs to be at least one more fish or seafood item on the menu. Choices are slim if you don’t eat meat.

It was a great experience! The garden seating was nice. The restaurant looked very small from the street but actually is not so small. The service was very attentive. The food was delicious. A place to hang out with friends.

We where excited to finally try we sat in the patio which is lovely
The night started out well, waiter was attentive and very nice. Once we received our first appetizer it went down hill.
Waiter was invisible and when the boss boy asked if he could clear the the table we said yes and asked about the rest of our meal. He went upstairs as I watched him laugh at us with his fellow bus boys.
Horrible service invisible wait staff and food was served with half our mussels unable to eat as they where not open
When waiter finally came out he went from attentive to clueless
Nice spot for a drink but anything more be warned

Was looking for a place to have dinner with my daughter prior to a show at Studio 54. Made a reservation for 6pm. Greeted by friendly hostess & seated promptly. Not crowded when we arrived, but was full by the time we left. Chose to sit on outdoor patio, which was charming. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Atmosphere was great, waiters were attentive & made great suggestions. Food was terrific. Good portion sizes. We had a cheese plate & gnocchi in truffle sauce that was amazing. Would have preferred a better wine selection, as we prefer a sweet wine, but the waiter gave us a suggestion & let us taste before ordering. Not rushed, but were out in plenty of time to make our show at 8. An overall wonderful experience.

We love Medi the service was excellent! My husband had blue point oysters that he loved. I had a great salad with the grilled chicken and it was delicious. My husband raved about his lamb burger and fries!! The Sangria was perfect! We have never been disappointed here!

The food was excellent but over priced, especially for the portion sizes. Our waitress was not attentive. My salad was missing ingredients but the waitress never came to check on us and I couldn't even find her until after we'd finished our meal. She did comp me a dessert for the incomplete salad.

Medi is good if you want drinks and nibbles (and don't mind paying a lot) but not if you're really hungry for a meal.

It was way too noisy to have a pleasant conversation. The waitress completely ignored us. The portion of the dish that I ordered was tiny. The lamb kofte came on toasted pita which made it hard to pick up or eat with a fork. I don't usually complain about restaurants, but I was really disappointed with this place.

We ate in the garden which was great. Being able to sit out in the open was the best thing in a crowded city but feel like your not. Noise level was low even though there where many people in the garden. The server was very patient and knowledgeable letting my date sample two wines in or to chose one she wanted with her dinner.

The small plates were wonderful, as were the price fix dinners. The food is fresh and delicious. The drinks were good, too. And our waitress was, as always, wonderful. My only reason for not visiting more often is that the prices are on the high side, even for Manhattan. Otherwise, highly recommended.

Medi is in a great location, and has an absolutely lovely backyard, which is not easy find in midtown/hells kitchen. Our wine, beer, appetizers, and service was all great. Our entrees left something to be desired. I'm a pasta lover, but the parpadelle was... horrible... the noodles were not cooked through, there was not sauce, except for the puddle of oil, which completely overpowered any other flavor present in the dish. One person could not even stomach having it at the table. My rec - get shared snacks, enjoy the wine selection, excellent and attentive service, and the charming backyard.

I went twice in a week. The food is terrific. I had the Mediterranean casserole once and the fish with lemon and capers. Both were prepared with such expertise. The staff is very friendly and accommodated our rush to get to the theater. Looking forward to my next visit.

Always delicious food and the service is kind, but not necessarily expedient. But they were kind enough to find me some babaganoush at brunch when they don't usually serve it and that was a real treat. The garden ambiance in the back is very nice.

If you go expecting European Service, and not NYC service, you'll be fine. I think we sat with dirty plates on the table in an empty garden for about 40minutes before they came to check on us. The food was good, but not great. At the end of the day the atmosphere is GREAT and it's such a great surprise to get to eat outside... that this place is worth it but drinks and app's or a cheese board may be the way to go.

Very tasty, well cooked and presented. Lobster ravioli was extremely good. Roast hen was a good size portion with well balanced flavours. Mussels with Chorizo was just right, with some lovely crispy fries. Would definitely go back if on 9th Avenue again.
