I came with my friend for the Groupon deal (Menu fixe for 2 + chamapgne for $35). We were served deviled eggs (yumm); Caesar s salad (a-ok, a little bit too much ranch); mini sliders (so sad that they were only three); and mini grilled cheese bites (yumm for the tomato bisque that came on the side). Although we did come with Groupon, I was a little disappointed with how little food we both got - it was a plate of 5 deviled eggs, 5 pieces of lettus for the Caesar's salad; three mini sliders; and maybe 7 mini grilled cheese bites? and this was shared between the two of us. We ended up ordering the chicken satay skewers, which were pretty good. We also had dessert - a coffee inspired creme-brulee (yum!), a mini carrot cake cupcake, a mini red velvet cupcake, and a cheesecake lollipop thing? haha. The only dessert I enjoyed was the coffee inspired creme-brulee (it was a unique twist on a classic desert) Anyway, I would want to come back for Sunday brunch (bottomless mimosas!) & for the party atmosphere it embodies (room is dimly lit to a pinkish/fuschia hue). One star taken off for one of its bathrooms - no lock!

The food was great, but one big problem during dinner- My mom found a snot-like sticky, white substance on her plate. We asked our server to give us a new one, but he did not even say sorry once and just took the plate away, as if the sticky substance was supposed to be there. We were pretty annoyed with the attitude, so we notified the manager, who was super nice:)--he gave us an entire dessert feast for free(yes, with the giant fortune cookie in it) Overall: -Really, really good asian fusion food- they get the definition of asian fusion right and the food is amazing. - Awesome ambiance- I'm such an interior design and ambiance freak and this place really hit the spot. The giant Buddha and the pit of water its sitting on are really eye-pleasers.

I feel sort of bad for this place, because it's actually very nice, but it does draw a crowd that seems to be sort of Frat boy meets Girls Gone Wild ("These are my boobs!). Unfortunately, I think someone is probably going to have to fall off the roof and hang from their Burberry scarf before this crowd moves on. As for Medjool's food and cocktails, I have found a few items that I liked quite a bit and a few that I wasn't crazy about. The dishes on their dinner menu are inspired by food from North Africa, Southern Europe and the Middle East. It's definitely more trendy than traditional, but there are some nice options. As for the service, I haven't had a problem yet, but I did think our food was paced a little too slow. I was in tonight with my friend that lives in the neighborhood and she said it seemed dead compared to a year ago. I would imagine that the economy is playing a part in that. They were offering 50% off wine by the bottle. so that's a nice incentive - and maybe now that the weather is getting colder the club will mellow out a bit. For now the rooftop bar is really cool if you go early enough and avoid the scene.
