The menu item called Seafood Paella is not, period. There was some decent seafood and pretty good flavors, but it was absolutely NOT a paella. Wikipedia defines paella as " Valencian paella is believed to be the original recipe and consists of white rice, green vegetables, meat (chicken and rabbit," This meal had No rice, not cooked in a paella...

Medici has great atmosphere -- the wooden tables and the old tree trunk rising through the restaurant are lovely, but it is always really loud there -- perhaps the two-story exposed brick wall reflects all of the sound? If possible, go upstairs to the outside area -- there you can eat in more peaceful surroundings. The food is decent, if... More

I had the lettuce wraps as an appetizer and they were delicious and a meal in themselves. They had a wonderful flavor which left me wishing I hadn't shared them with the table. For a main dish I had the spinach salad with chicken and it was also excellent.

We found this place on a whim. Got the BBQ brisket and my friend got the Mahi Mahi Tuna tacos. Food was awesome. Scene is great. Waitress was cute.

The family was in town from Chicago dropping off our daughter for school. We've been to Medici a few times before and always have had a good experience. This visit was no different! The three adults at the table all ordered cheeseburgers, I think it's called the "Medici burger" and wow, it was great. It's a cheeseburger with just a... More

It was always a treat for me to visit Medicis! My favorite thing on the menu is their sweet potato tater tots and cob salad. They have a great, diverse, and ever changing draft beer list, affordable menu items,and a wonderful atmosphere! They even have a yummy bloody mary bar on Sundays. This was my go-to place whenever I had... More

No room on the outdoors patio, but that's because this place has a nice feel and good food at decent prices. Right downtown in a charming area.

We have been here several times and each time I really want to like the food. I have tried different things each time with higher expectations than the previous time. Maybe that is my problem. The craft beer selection is excellent and I had the drink special - a summer white sangria, which was fabulous. Sweet and light. We didn't... More

The restaurant has a local great reputation and the food during festivals outside are great. But if you are going inside, get ready for a 2 hours wait. The staff is poorly trained. McDonalds counter servers are way better trained than this place. I had to ask for water. Then 30 minutes later I had to ask for appetizers, Then... More

Our company decided to have lunch at Medici in downtown Normal earlier this week, and opted to dine al fresco upstairs on the patio. It was a great decision, as there was a nice breeze the temperature was perfect. We were quickly seated, and were provided nice tall glasses of ice water. The server was also prompt to get our...
