The food here is typically very good. I have, however ordered the same dish, paella on various occasions and had different qualities. The happy hour is a great way to try out the tapas. If you have a problem being in noisy, crowded spaces, this may not be the place for you.

A couple people said this spot was great so we were expecting something decent. Unfortunately, we were severely disappointed. Not only were we seated at a horrific table in the corner with dirty plates even though we had made reservations well in advance, they never put on the heat lamps when we were told they would be turned on. Now... More

Festive atmosphere, tasty tapas, fast service, attentive staff. Please insert halo behind Hannah's braids in attached photo. Eat and drink whatever the staff recommends and be happy.

We sat out in their beautifully decorated patio, by an authentic lovely tile wall. The menu included tapas, wonderful breads and dipping oil, and delicious offerings from Spain and the Mediterranean area. Delicious hummus, interesting seasonal salads and entrees. Fantastic dessert, the Chocolate Almond Tower -a flourless chocolate brownie with a scoop of salted caramel ice cream and delicious caramel... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Boulder. Not only are the tapas an amazing value during happy hour, but the ingredients are top notch.

Had a late lunch here and really enjoyed the space and food. Was surprised at the variety on the menu - everything from hummus, falafel and gyros to pizzas & pastas. I had the chicken gyro which was very tasty but was surprised that it came as a wrap instead of a true gyro. The server was nice but seemed... More

We used to love the Med but the food quality has slipped into average to below on our last 3 visits. Our margarita pizza was soggy not crispy, chicken picatta dry, tapas presentation ...well none. Just thrown on a plate. Maybe it was because it was a Sunday night but 6 of the 8 entrees served were only OK. I... More

The Mediterranean is an attractive restaurant with excellent food. My hubby had the Seafood Puttanesca and I had the Pasta Bolognese both excellent. The salad of the day was so good, baby spinach, arugula, grilled shrimp, grilled calamari, blue cheese, in a clementine Vinegarette. The soup was good also.

Second time here. Great service. They work have d to get you a table and if you have to wait they will take your number and will text you when they are ready. Great atmosphere and quick service with the tapas. They come out when they are ready. So we got our first dish within minutes of ordering and had... More

Centrally located on Pearl Street, it was easy to find and easy to park in one of the adjacent garages. The menu choice was good and the food quality was excellent. I've had Tapas in many places, including where it originates, and thought this fitted the bill nicely. The Courtyard setting is great if they have space, but beware sudden... More
