Nice, relaxed ambiance. Pretty small - at night, you might walk by it and miss it but very quaint. Noise level pretty average compared to other wine bars in the area. Waiter was friendly although it was clear that he was new and still learning English. Had the artichoke, bruschetta and chorizo, all excellent dishes.

Medi is a wonderful wine bar in Hell's Kitchen with great snacks and a lovely wine selection. A highlight is their lamb pasta and their meatballs. They also have a nice large area downstairs for large groups. Overall if you are looking for something in the theatre district that is not overpriced and is relaxing I would go there.

I planned to host a private event at Medi this past weekend (my sisters bridal shower) and talked to the owner, Dorian, about using their private space downstairs. The space was perfect for our needs given we needed a private area where our guests could walk around and mingle so they did not bother the other patrons. The owner agreed to let us host the party in his basement, according to him it was the right time given it was June and warming up outside. He said he could use the patio for any overfill from their main dining room. A week prior to the event I confirmed the headcount and had to follow up a number of times to have the contract reflect the new headcount. On Friday afternoon before my event I decided to call the restaurant to see if we could come in to decorate/set up and a woman named Bella asked what we wanted to set up for because according to her, we couldnt come more than 15 minutes prior to the party. Now if any of you have hosted a prvate event, specifically a bridal shower, you should know there are lots of logistics that come along with the party such as decorations, arranging the tables, display of gifts, etc… the fact that she only allowed us to come in 15 mintues prior to the party really surprised me. I asked to speak to Dorian and was told he was traveling overseas and unreachable. Bella also stated that she did not want us to "disturb the other diners that woudl be in the room". I was floored when I learned that they decided to use our agreed to private dining space in the basement for overflow. We had a contract that specifically stated this would be a "private dining event" and this action was a breach of our contract. When I asked what changed she said that if we wanted to rent the whole room it would now be $3K. Since that was much more than even the max occupancy * price per person (60 people x $30 pp) I knew that wouldnt work for us but given the shower was to take place the next day I asked if we could compromise and have 1/2 the room. Bella rudely ansered no, that we would get a table in the back corner and that was the best they could do. When I asked her what I could do with the gifts people would be bring and how we would conduct the shower games, she was very rude and curt and just said that "we would get that corner and there would be no room for mingling." I was desperate on a friday afternoon before the party to make things work so I asked how we could compromise and she just countered back that there was no compromise and the only thing they could give us was the corner table. She then left for the day not looking for a way to settle this. This left me scrambling for a new place just hours before hosting the shower for 25 people. I normally don't take the time to write negative reviews if I get mediocre service or a bad dish, but I am seriously seeking legal options due to this b*tch Bella. I would definitely NOT recommend any one dine here or be associated with the type of people who runs this establishment. It's one thing to be rude at a table or serve a mediocre dish, it's entirely another thing to breach a contract the day before an event and try to extort a customer out of more money. My experience with Bella alone has left a terrible taste in my mouth. She has no customer service skills and was a complete b*tch to deal with. I stumbled upon this place from a referral… but I hope me sharing my experience will make anyone looking to host an event here or dining here think twice.

When: Tuesday, late afternoon With Whom: Table for 1 Ordered: Lamb Kofte & Brussel Sprout Bites What I Loved/Liked: The Lamb Kofte, yummy yummy. Absolutely delicious. Also, the bread that came to the table was very fresh and soft. I sat in the back outdoor dining area and thought it was very romantic and beautiful, it reminded me of being in Europe. Improvements: The Brussel Sprout bites were slightly overcooked, but they still tasted fine. Service/Staff: My server and the staff were very attentive.

My brother rented the private space downstairs for their rehearsal dinner and we had a great time. The reservation was held on Friday at 8:00 PM so naturally the restaurant was packed but the minute we walked downstairs, we felt that we had entered a private restaurant catered just for our family and friends. Every time I turned around to talk to a family member or a friend, my wine glass would magically refill! The tapas and main course were delish!

friendly service and food is not bad but wine by the glass is awkwardly insufficient. best to get a bottle so you don't feel like you're getting a half glass. the linguini with meyer lemon is excellent. beautiful servers!
