Medjool is amazing; it has never disappointed me. I remember fondly having my 21st or 22nd birthday here... going on a date with my first REAL boyfriend here... lots of memories this place conjures up... my most recent visit was last Friday, had a girls night out there. We started the night up on the roof because the balcony was closed, and it was great. Half of the upstairs is under a tent and the other half outside... On nights when it is not so cold the place is perfect... but when it is a bit chilly, they have nice heat lamps. There is always a very good vibe in this place, and usually a lot of good looking men and women. I also like the fact that there is a hostel here as well, you can meet a lot of foreign visitors, and it really gives the place an international vibe, which I love. Sangrias are a bit pricey (8:00) a glass, but if you order one without ice, you won't need more than one. Those things are pretty darn strong... Balcony area finally opened and we all hang out on the lovely plush couches for awhile after it got too cold to stay out on the roof. All staff were friendly and courteous. This is a perfect place to go if you want somewhere really nice to go for a date or even a group outing! Unfortunately, I have not yet tried the food, it does seem a bit pricey... maybe next time. I will definitely be back!

Went to Woodfire Grill for my birthday and my husband and I had the 5 course tasting menu and loved it! I though Kevin did a great job at turning some ordinary items into some really interesting dishes. I also thought the staff did a great job at timing the dishes and the wine pairing was very good! We were very satisfied with the size of the servings, as this is a "tasting menu" which I think some folks do not realize is different that order al la carte selections. I for one enjoy trying new things and I think that is what is so fun about being able to try so many things over the course of 1 meal. I also think the bartenders are doing a great job with the cocktails and I was very happy to see some of mt favorite Ca. wines on their list at regular retail price, That alone make a trip to Woodfire worth it in my book. It's also nice that Kevin is so humble and you can really get a sense that he truly enjoys cooking food for others!!
