continued value for money – the Med is always good. Too busy on Fridays for sure but then, I go on sundays and then it is OK
viva la med! – This is an awesome restaurant. A completely original menu, always masterfully executed, with beautiful presentation as an added treat. The hours are unusually good for this town, Happy Hour makes reasonably priced fare even more affordable. My favorite restaurant in Boulder. The only complaints I can make are that it is so popular that it is extremely busy and often gets very loud (which I hate, but the food makes it worth it.) Also, the wait staff, while prompt, attentive, and skillful, are often a little fakey and grovelling in the management's obvious attempt to make the place seem as nouvea-riche as possible. A word of warning--although one can eat very well here for a moderate fee, it's often very difficult to do so because the desserts, salads, tapas, drinks, etc. are all so tempting. It's easy to submit to that temptation and double your bill.
MMMMMM!!! – Tucked away from the street near beautiful Pearl Street in Boulder, it is easy to pass by the Med without even noticing that it is there. Make sure you do! The tapas are to die for, especialy the calimari. Eat all the food you want, you will rarely ever stumble over something you don't like. Skip dessert, though. At $7.50 a peice, the sweets are not worth the dough. But overall, the Med is one of the best restaurants in Boulder!
the Med Impression – Wow! This is such a great restaurant. The food is fantastic. Try the tapas with friends after work or take a date there for the wood fired pizza and great pastas. The setting is classy but casual. I really enjoy the Med (as its informally called) and I highly recomend it.
Best place to take friends/family – Whenever friends or family visit me in Boulder, this is the first place I recommend...it has food that pretty much everyone I know enjoys, and does it well. The atmosphere is perhaps a little trendy, and it can be quite loud when busy (my parents hated that part about it, as we could scarcely hear each other talk on the night we went), but overall this is a real winner. Fairly decent beer list for a general restaurant too (Reissdorf Kölsch, Paulaner Hefe-Weissbier, etc.). Attentive/professional service.
Best spot in Boulder! – Outside seating is wonderful...you can almost imagine you're in a different country. Great food.
To Die For! – This is the best restaurant in the entire Denver area because this is where you find the best food and service for the best price. No snootie waiters here, just good responsive service from friendly people.
try the Steak Sinatra a large meal not on the menu, consisting of a large filet con a huge plate of vegitable and a fantastic brown sauce, On for the hungry.
The Pizza is excellent.
Tapas Please – Don't show up at 7:30 on a Tuesday night expecting to be seated right away. Sit at the bar and have a drink. The staff is friendly and sometimes frenzied. Flowers arranged by the owner add love to this always bustling restaurant. Go for Tapas hour and try all the great tastes they serve. Especially, the calamari and garlic spread. Best restaurant in Boulder, hand down.
good stuff – consistently good food, the tapas are where it's at!
service could be better
