“Great for Business”
Reviewed November 11, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Medici is a stylish uptown restaurant and bar. It is a favorite hangout for cool young adults after work and the best place in town for a business lunch. They have a fun "gastropub" menu with lovely salads, great burgers, and wood-fired flatbread pizzas. Service is attentive and the food is a good value.

“Outstanding preparation and presentation!”
Reviewed November 8, 2013 via mobile

This light filled restaurant is accented by unique wooden tables and a two story floor to ceiling tree in the atrium.

Pulled pork BBQ sandwich with tangy slaw was exceptional.

Friendly, attentive service.

A little noisy with conversation and laughter from tables of families and friends.

Table and booth seating. Seasonal outdoor seating.

Full bar.

Soft drinks include RC, Diet Rite, and Dr. Pepper.

Handicapped accessible.

“Great food”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

The food here is pretty much made from scratch. Not your prepared from the bag as some chains do. Traveling through on a business trip and the place was recommended by someone at the hotel. It is a bit pricey, this compared to chain eateries, but worth it . The food is very good and portions are large enough to satisfy most appetites. the building is unique, as it has a large tree in the center of the restaurant!

“It's all about the atmosphere”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

The atmosphere is really cool, kind of hipster place. Very nice looking and unique with a tree in the middle of the restaurant. The food was adequate. There was plenty of it, but the taste was just ok. I had the turkey burger and sweet potato tots. Neither impressed me very much. Husband's salad looked really good and he seems to enjoy it. Son's macaroni and cheese was very good. Daughter's cheese pizza was just ok. She said it tasted like they accidentally dumped the jar of parmesan on it. We each had one drink and our bill was $75. Not sure we'll be in a hurry to go back but it was a neat place.
