We liked that they have plenty of room to seat big parties. The prices are a bit too high for the quality they offer. The service should try to be a bit more friendly. The wine was very nice, the food ok, service ok, prices hight, and great location.

We were looking for Italian food, but the restaurants were packed. The Mediterranean happened to have three seats at the bar, so we grabbed them unsure of what to expect. What a delightful surprise! The bartender was very pleasant and helpful, the drinks were creative and very generous, and the food was AMAZING!! I had the specialty of the house... More

After hiking in Chataqua Park, my grandson, his wife, their year- old baby and I went for lunch at the Mediterranean Restaurant. The service was excellent, efficient and thoughtful. Our server was especially good with the baby and she just fell in love with him. The tapas were varied and excellent and their were Spanish, Italian and Greek dishes. The... More

The Med is a perfect place for a friends' lunch, happy hour, dinner or date night. In the summer, it has a sunny outdoor patio. Prices are reasonable, and there's a nice menus of small plates.

This restaurant has something for everyone ranging from tapas, pizzas, pastas, paella, and seafood platters. The place was packed and VERY noisy, but overall I was impressed. They had a nice wine selection and some awesome appetizers. I ordered the Valenciana Paella and it was pretty good - but I have had better paella before. I also felt like it... More

We had a reservation but had to wait while they seated big groups of walk ups. Then they seated us in the middle of the loud groups. Our waitress couldn't even hear us. The food was fine, smaller portions than last several times. On the way out we had to walk around a big puddle of something in the middle... More

This restaurant has something for everyone - tapas, pasta, pizza, entrees. Be sure to make a reservation! It was busy when we went on a Tuesday evening, but we were able to snag a high top table in the bar area.

This restaurant is always packed. The food is not very good for the price. The atmosphere is loud chaotic. Maybe a good spot for younger college students, but don't plan to go there for an adult evening (or good middle eastern food)!

The Med is probably the best tapas restaurant in the state of Colorado. I used to come here a lot while I was going to grad school at CU Boulder. Now I live in Denver, and anytime we go to Boulder, The Med is a must stop! One of my favorite plates is the roasted garlic, goat cheese, and apricot... More

To start with they have Moriarti beer on tap. Saved me a quick trip to Italy. Small plates reasonably priced. Many of the selections are a real treat. The Mediterranean culturally covers a lot of territory. Service was excellent.
