The Med is one of the mainstays of the downtown Boulder restaurant scenes. It's always busy - partly because it's one of the only upscale Boulder restaurants that is inexpensive enough for the college crowd. The food is consistently great - a wide variety of tapas and mediterranian / Italian entrees - with the occassional special. The waitstaff is young, energetic, and consistently friendly - this is clearly a fun place to work even though it's always intensely busy. The scene is great - crowded, yet not annoyingly so, dynamite food, good wine list, and - well - low prices for the quality you are getting.
