Excellent experience. We were here for our 25th anniversary in election night a few weeks ago and had a quiet seat in the corner on the very far side by nice windows. We are from Spain and everything was good, our waitress Annie, dark hair pinned up, was very friendly and sweet and even got us some Spanish chorizo on our pizza, cancelled the tapas that hadn't come yet when we told her we were too full! And they bought us an anniversary dessert too. She was very kind to let us old folks tell her stories about Spain and our muscatel and reminisce about the old days. May not be going to Spain again soon but will be back to The Mediterran!
The appetizers were disgusting!! it was freezing in the place and werent by any doors or windows.. it took them an hour to bring our food out!!! i mean its two people come one!!! an hour!!! were were starving and they just said sorry and onto the next table... I had heard good reviews about this place but it is the most uncomfortable restaurant ever... the waiters/ss were giving each other attitudes and you could hear the managers talking bad about the service... save your money go someplace else
"The Med" is always a great option for late night dining, large parties or date nights. The decor and table setup makes for an intimate setting even though the dining room is huge! We arrived at the restaurant around nine o'clock on a friday night without a reservation and were able to be sat right away. Our server was knowledgeable, prompt and very friendly. For those wondering, the Med absolutely kills it with the happy hour and late night menu. We ordered from the late night menu which was lined, front to back, with sensational options with a mediterranean flare. Ordering was easy as you simply pencil in which items you would like and how many. Winner, winner plates: the polenta and lamb was DY-NA-MITE. It was so simple, just polenta topped with tender, slow roasted lamb, spicy arugula, fresh shaved parmesan and pomegranate seeds. Other winners were the humus and pita (house-made and always a favorite in my book), the calamari, the charcuterie and potatas bravas. Meh plates: When I think mediterranean, I think of the baklava and spanakopita.  The spanakopita at The Med was wildly underwhelming. It was small, soggy and the accompanying yogurt sauce was overpowering. I was really hoping for a traditional flakey crust and spinach packed filling. Overall, one meh dish did not ruin my experience. I was tempted to give The Med a 5-stars for their continuously great food selection and service, but they did the thing... The thing I hate most when eating at a tapas restaurant. All of the plates came out at the same time. We had 7 plates (8 if you include the bread), plus two water glasses and two wines glasses on the table. If we weren't a party of two sitting at a 4-top, everything most certainly would not have fit. I always feel rushed when all of the plates come out at once. I shove my face with random bites that don't compliment each other and it takes away from the overall experience. Not to mention the food sits on the table getting old, hot food get cold and cold food gets crusty. Yes, I know I could have told the server exactly how I wanted the plates to come out, but I truly appreciate a server who takes the time to mold my order into a dining experience and not a table she can flip in 30 minutes. Oh, did I mention our two glasses of wine and 7 plate order came under $60? Major score for The Med late night menu.
