Good place to try

This place has an interesting menu, and unique daily specials. The service can be a little slow, but the food is good.

Took my mother and sister to Medici for lunch. $70 later we left with half eaten poorly tasting food. The crab cakes were so fishy you couldn't even stand the smell much less the taste. The Prawns still had the shells on and lacked any flavor. I asked for lemons wedges and the waitress brought these thin little slices that... More

If you should ever find yourself in Normal, IL you owe it to yourself to stop in at Medici. Wonderful atmosphere, super friendly staff, awesome beer selection, and most importantly the food was outstanding. I personally recommend the mahi tacos, the sweet potato tater tots, all washed down with a Crooked Tree beer. Nice kids menu to choose from too!... More

Excellant dinner - great chef with imagination! Enjoy "bloodies" for Sunday brunch ....especially with crabcake egg Benedict... Yum. Craft beers and a good wine selection! Fabulous to have Medicis right here in Normal---- fine dining n drink. Wonderful city experience without the city price!

Staying at the Marriott, there wasn't too many options for dinner unless I wanted some "fast food" type food. I sat at the bar at Medici and was very happy with my decision to go there. I had the rib eye stake and asparagus and loved every minute of it. The bartenders were nice and attentive, but not overbearing.

My family eats at Medici on a regular basis (once a month), usually after attending a movie at the Normal Theater. It is one of my favorite eateries in Bloomington-Normal and my sister even had her high school graduation party there. The staff is friendly, I love the fossilized tree in the center of the restaurant, and when the weather's... More

My wife and I, with another couple recently visited Medici. This was our first time and we enjoyed it. We had several appetizers that were all good. For the meal, I had the salmon over Mac. It was excellent. However for dessert I had the bread pudding which I would not recommend. It was a little hard and lacked flavor.... More
