I went here for my prom dinner and my date and I couldn’t be more impressed. We had the best experience and the food was delicious. Would recommend to all my friends and will be going back!

Have been to the Med many times but this time was a disappointment. The tapas were so so and one of us ordered the eggplant parma and were told it was 8 large pieces of eggplant . . . The plate was 3 small pieces, like a tapas, for $14.95.
All in all, the Med is inconsistent and we won’t be back for the time being.

The Med is always amazing! The food is consistently delicious, the ambiance is awesome, the wait staff is exceptional, and we are always happy and content, when we leave! It's our "go-to" place for special occasions, happy hour, lunch, brunch, and dinner. We love the Med:)!

Small store front, large venue both indoor and outside - very comfortable and pleasant atmosphere. Our server, Margaret, was outstanding - very pleasant and did her best to make our dinner the best it could be. The Baba Ganouj was probably the best we have ever had and the Burratta Caprese was a close second. Our dinners were outstanding - I had the Saltimboca and it was especially good. We will definitely return to the Med. We highly recommend it.

I was very disappointed in our visit, especially since it was husband's birthday, and we were there no celebrate. His birthday went completely unacknowledged even tho I put the info in the reservation. Service was good but the food was just OK. Our entre dishes lacked any spice which made them very bland and unexciting. We had paella and pasta; would have been nice to have a bit of bread with our meal. The tapas we had before the meal were very good (lamb skewer, calamari, empanadas).

With all the good restaurants in Boulder & Denver, I doubt we will return.

The Med is a lively place to meet friends for dinner. I wouldn't recommend for an evening with the kids and grandma (which is what we most recently did). The food was good but it was too loud to easily have a conversation.

Great place if you don't mind the hustle and bustle of downtown Boulder, especially crowded if the CU Students are out and about. Definitely get a reservation and get there early to try their happy hour tapas and drinks.

Great experience! Food was delicious and fairly priced at happy hour. Our waiter was awesome—even gave us a free dessert since it was our first time. It’s perfect for a date night or a family dinner (it’s loud in there so no one will hear your kids if they’re loud).

The food was excellent. The service was not - after being seated and waiting to order for half an hour, I had to flag down a passing waiter to see who was supposed to be serving us. No one had even come to our table to offer us water, bread, or to take our food or drink orders. To make matters worse, we got there during happy hour and wanted to order our food during happy hour, but since our waitress didn't show up until after happy hour was over, we got charged the higher (non-happy hour) prices. So basically we got charged extra because of extremely late service by the wait staff.

The food at the Med is very good. We were there on a Saturday night, which was quite packed. The noise level is exceptionally high, so if you have someone with any hearing challenges in your group, try a less busy time. There didn’t seem to be enough servers for the number of people there. Our server was friendly and responsive, but we just didn’t see him enough. From the time we were served our entree to long after we were done, he never checked on our table. Not a major deal, but it didn’t inspire me to the Med either.

The menu has something for everyone. Our group of 8 teenaged girls had a great time and enjoyed their food. Since it was a birthday party, we arranged to pay ahead of time, and the hostess handled those arrangements perfectly. The only complaint we had was the noise level. It was so loud (with very loud intrusive music) that the diners could not hear one another easily, even with their young ears! Otherwise, a fun spot for a night out.

The noise level is absolutely way beyond a comfort level for conversation. I've periodically been to the Med over 20 years but as a spot to allow discourse it's not supportive

Growing up in Boulder I thought it would be great to celebrate The Med`s 25th anniversary & also take Mom out for Valentines day at the same time.

Upon arrival the Hostess had our reservation but rushed us to the back of the restaurant to sit in a dark corner even though at 1:45 the restaurant had few people.

We asked for a table with more daylight. She seemed annoyed we would even ask & then disgruntedly marched us to the bar area to an incredibly small 2 top. Even though many other tables were open. Slapping down the menus & running off to the hostess station where no one awaited her exuberant return.

Our waitress finally showed up 15/20 minutes later, giving us no name & seemed equally as rushed but only having 3 tables including ours at that time. We ordered drinks & stated we`ll order food when she returns. Much to our chagrin even those took another 15 minutes to deliver, Bar also not busy.

We ordered appetizers & proceeded with our hurray up & wait experience. Our entertainment became Watching the Chef or Sou Chef hand deliver every entree to 2 young women sitting at the table next to us. At first we thought how professional to make sure the patrons are enjoying the food. Only realizing he never did make it to any other tables becoming obvious he was either dating one of them or a sadly cheeky attempt to do so. Being as one of them declined a filet Mignon's he brought, not even having ordered it.

Meanwhile our appetizers grew cold sitting on the bar, within view but sadly without a server to deliver them to their destination. Finally the waitress dropped them off & was on the run again. Luckily before she was out of ears reach we called to please bring some bread.

The entrees arrived 45 minutes later which would have been acceptable had it not been both were entree salads requiring very little prep time. All in all it took 2 1/2 Hrs to complete our meal. Leaving a lasting but unpleasant aftertaste to a restaurant once exceptional.
