Found this on Open Table, it was about five miles off the highway, worth every mile. Cute place, with a tree in the center. They had Daisy Cutter on the draft beer list, very nice. I had a black bean burger, with sweet potato tater tots, they were tasty. Cuban was very good along with the fries. Waiter was also... More

My husband and I went here on a Saturday evening for dinner. It was busy and if you want a table without a long wait, be sure to make a reservation. We decided to just go to the upstairs bar to eat. We were the only ones sitting at that bar, so had the whole area to ourselves, which was... More

Casual but nice. Very good food and service. Quaint downtown close to the University. So many choices of tap beer so little time.

This place is awesome. Very upscale smart casual, but you could wear jeans or a suit. I had the taco pizza (they call it the fiesta) and it was the bomb-diggity. Chicago style medium/thin crust, chorizo, hot sauce, cheddar and mozzarella, cooked to toasty perfection and finished with broken tortilla chips, iceberg lettuce and diced tomato. Just thinking about it... More

Medici is a wonderful restaurant for us to take our daughter when we visit Normal. Food is great, and with a reservation, seating is quick. Staff was friendly and did a fantastic job. Uptown Normal is a fun place to walk around either before or after dinner. Very close to the ISU campus.

I reserved this restaurant because it had good reviews and was across the street from our hotel. The atmosphere and service was very nice. Our waiter was very friendly and the food came out hot and timely. We started with cocktails, I had the old Hattan which I was extremely pleased with. The hummus appetizer was also very good (we...

I had dinner here while in town for business. The food was very good and so was the service. I read where service was subpar, but perhaps newer staff was not there before. I like to visit unique spots and this had everything I was looking for. Will definitely come back next time I'm in the area.

Food wise: I had a shrimp salad and asked for somethings to be omitted and to substitute other items and they were accommodating to my requests, the salad was a decent portion, enough for dinner, fresh greens and the shrimp were nicely cooked. My son had the BBQ Brisket, I thought it a bit dry, but flavorful and enjoyed the... More

This place is great for a date night or girls night. The portions are on the small side but DELICIOUS! We went with another couple and enjoyed the different beers they had to offer. I would recommend getting a reservation as it can be a bit of a wait sometimes for a table on the weekend nights.

Enjoy the tree in the middle! The food is very tasty and they have an interesting menu. It's rather noisy.
