Went for dinner months ago and to tell you the truth I completely forgot about it (it was that memorable), until my boyfriend and I looked at getting an early bit to eat while strolling through Chelsea (did not eat there that night) ... Why did I all of a sudden remember it? THE GARDEN. Its a great space and a great idea. I really wanted to love this place solely on its decor (its the only thing worthy of 5 stars in this place) Service leaves much to be desired (1 star). We had reservations, got there and were told we would have to wait, ok. I had been looking at apartments all day and really had to use the little girls room ... come back to some seriously pissed off faces. Since I left to go to the bathroom, they gave the table away because "the entire party was not there" ... wait another 15 minutes to be seated. Table service was seriously spotty, very slow, and hardly attentive. Food was forgettable. Nothing stood out as wow (2 stars). Ordered small plates, calamari, mussels, margherita pizza, and something else I can't remember. Mussels were probably the best item, but you can get better mussels elsewhere. Drink (1 star). At the waiter's suggestion we order the sangria. Told we would not be sorry ... I was disappointed.

I remember last summer (the summer of '06) when I'd go to Medjool almost every Sunday for some drinks with friends on the rooftop to enjoy the SF view whilst wearing shades and a summer dress. Warm weather, not so crowded Sunday afternoon and a great view. It's too bad that it's not that case these days. Perhaps on rare Sunday occasions.
