I arranged a family birthday celebration here for 14 guests. It was a bit of a challenge to get the event arranged because they had trouble emailing the contract, but we overcame that. I found out that unless you have over 50 guests, your seating will be in the main restaurant. With our latecomers (including the guest of honor) coming late, there were a few stressful moments when the staff told us that they had other reservations for the table. What a relief when they decided to open their event room for the other guests. We did appreciate the flexibility. The food was served family style and everything was absolutely mouth-wateringly delicious. In my opinion, everything was hands down, top notch. I really loved it. I had ordered two specialty dessert platters for the table. I saw one going to another table (thought it was ours at first) and was very excited about the beauty and presentation. Unfortunately, time went by and in spite of asking about it several times, it did not come. Sadly we had to remove it from our bill and leave since there were several families with children in our party. We did ask for the left over food to be wrapped up, but without persistence, that did not happen. Everyone I dealt with was professional and gracious, and the food was amazing, but according to my experience, persistence is the word of the day if you want everything to come together here.

I went with my immediate family to celebrate my mmh-something birthday. For customers of the sadly departed haHatzer, the comparison is almost inevitable. I actually found Medita better on many fronts - the layout of the place, which enables now for a separate entrance for groups and avoids placing of tables near the toilet area; the service, much more caring (the chef himself made the rounds of all the tables ) and relaxed, and the general atmosphere. The food was at least at par with haHatzer - the meats expertly cooked and grilled and the lovely aubergine cream and focaccia stood out as usual - and my impression was that the menu is now more varied and extensive. We had a lovely evening during a stormy winter night, and Medita made it very worthwhile to get soaking wet (not knowing there is covered parking in the same building). We are definitely planning return visits.

Having been to Hachatzer, Chef's Motti Ohanas famous kosher restaurant last June, we were very much looking forward to a fantastic meal once again. I must say we came out disappointed. We opted to the tasting menu, we were 5, and quantity wise i must say it was very generous and we could not finish everything. I will also add that with the tasting menu you get a full 'tour' of what is on offer. Little salads and bread to start, 3 fish starters, 4 meat starters, a huge meat plateau, and a selection of deserts. The bread and salads were fantastic. Unbelievable creamy aubergine with silan dip, fantastic pickled lemon, and amazing Tehina among other salads. Then we received a very small tuna dish that, while fantastic, was too small for 5 people. The next was a mix of fish cuts in a sauce that none of us liked, and a very pretty looking plate of grilled salmon with very nice and crispy skin, but the salmon was WAY overcooked. Nice meat started followed but none that were anything special, and the sweetbread cigars that we had such high hopes for were left too long in the oil i think. The crust was overdone and the sweetbread overcooked and chewy. The lamb chops in the main meat plate had the same problem lamb in Israel has, namely very heavy in 'mutton' flavor. This is probably due to the age of the animal, you don't get that with real baby lamb, but then again the chops from a real baby lamb are very small... The desserts were nice, but we were probably too full to fully analyse them. What bothered me, and what was missing, were the complex sauces and other ingredients we were used to from the Hatzer. The same goes for presentation. It lacked the beauty his dishes had in the Hatzer. You got a lot for money, but the food was disappointing, not because it was not good, it was, but because after the Hatzer we expected a lot more.
