Visited here with a few friends. Big place and crowded. A little hard to have much of a conversation due to the noise. Service was just ok. Food good for the most part. Might be nice to sit on the patio when weather permits.

This restaurant has never disappointed with food or service. We've been here more times than I can count. Food has always been great. Service and management are also excellent. There is a reason they have been here forever. They've earned their reputation.

I ate a seafood paella and it does not look anything like the traditional paella. Very dry and could not taste the seafood flavors. Good service and nice environment.

The Med restaurant only allows "service dogs" in the restaurant. Boulder County's health laws do not allow dogs in restaurants. Hope this answers your question.
