    I was really impressed with the ambiance of this retrofit of a historic residence into an immaculate first-class restaurant. Midtown is a member of the Kevin and Amy Binkley family (http://binkleysrestaurant.com/). With Kevin's creative genius in the kitchen and Amy's attentive supervision of all service details, this restaurant is a winner! Midtown deserves your special occasion consideration. Enjoy!

    This is a neighborhood gem! The food was outstanding!!! The BBQ Octopus was paired with a side of black-eyed peas, SOOO Yummy! The Rum Punch "Experience" was not only very good but entertainment for the entire restaurant! I loved the options of Gluten Free meals plus the deserts was a special treat for the taste buds!!! I heard about this restaurant via word of mouth now I'm spreading it to everyone also!!! Thanks to the Chef and staff for a wonderful Birthday experience for my husband's Birthday!!!

    Bink's Midtown was an absolutely lovely place to lunch. The sunlight filtered in from the cafe doors, which made the experience warm and inviting. The food was truly special. The balance between comfort and new - pot pie croquettes, inspired. And in a crowded market of specialty burgers, this one was delicious. Truffled fries were perfectly crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Overall a great experience.

    WE LOVED TAKING ANOTHER COUPLE AND INTRODUCING THEM TO SOME OF OUR FAVORITES. THE RIBS, FRIES AND SWEETBREAD NUGGETS ARE ALWAYS PERFECT AND THE MELON SALAD AND ENTREES WERE GREAT. WE SHARED EVERYTHING, EVEN THE STEAK AND PASTA ENTREES. EXCELLENT WINE SELECTIONS, TOO. A special thank you to the waiter and chef for helping me to figure out what I could eat re my gluten and onion allergies.

    Located among residential homes is this hidden gem of a restaurant. The menu selection is thoughtfully planned with selections of food items current with the season and the veggies, hot and cold are to die for. This was my first visit, but I'm certain to make more returns. The wait staff was attentive as well as knowledgeable about their menu/preparation.

    This is a very nice place positioned in an older home in a nice neighborhood. parking is challenging, however, so a valet service is provided which works out well. Our table was small and upon a request for a larger one, was told that none were available, so we felt a little crowded.

    They were going to seat us at a table for two, which I always find too small, they happily accomodated our request for a larger table. Our wait staff was knowledgable, there when you needed her and not hovering, just right. Our food for lunch was delicious with a gourmet twist, excellent presentation and surprised at the moderate prices. Will definitely return.

    We came in for dinner. We opted to go for the Restaurant Week menu, but ordered the Sweetbreads off of the regular menu to start us off. They were delicious! Definitely the best part of the meal. Not to minimize the Restaurant Week menu. The potpie croquettes were awesome! We loved the Hoisin-Glazed Ribs and the Pot Roast. Holy comfort food! The pot roast hit the spot. We would definitely (and have already) recommend Bink's Midtown for dinner. We had a great dinner! Thank you.

    We went to Bink's Midtown for Restaurant Week and in my opinion has been one of the best choices yet. I strongly recommend the chicken pot pie croquettes for an appetizer and for dessert the Black Forest Cake. I also got the tableside rum punch, which I recommend everyone try. It was made tableside with fresh fruit juices and frozen nitrogen. It was pretty expensive but they way I saw it, I got a drink and a show. Even better than the food was the service. Our waitress Kendall was one of the nicest we've ever had. Another staff, John, prepared my drink and chatted with us. I'm not sure what his position was but he was really nice and helped us choose our dishes. Nice restaurants normally have great staff but these two were outstanding!

    The food is utterly sensational and the cocktails, most of them served w/ a dose of liquid nitrogen, are good. The chicken croquette appetizer was whimsical and amazing. And the ribs, OMG, the ribs were beyond flavorful and accompanied by an super tasty cucumber salad w/ a peanut dressing. Incredible. Even something as simple as a beef roast w/ mashed potatoes was elevated to new heights. The only food flaw was the polenta cake - rather dull though moist. The black forest cake, on the other hand, was terrific and I HATE black forest cake.

    The gingerbready treat before my meal was interesting & tasty, but might not be liked by someone who is a bread purest. Eggplant was my first course. Spicy red sauce, lots of olive oil, and tender Japanese eggplant added up to an okay appetizer. Main dish was three Hosin glazed Pork ribs with a small, mixed green salad. I noticed the Happy Hour menu offers six in a serving. They were meaty and I liked the glaze, but were not as tender as I would have liked. The dessert I picked was the 'black forest cake': a large piece of plain chocolate cake, a scoop of warm, cherry sauce, vanilla ice cream, and crushed oreos. I liked it. Service was polished with clean silverware between courses.

    Overall, pretty good but there are just so many good options downtown, it's tough competition. I had the steak frites for lunch. Steak was well seasoned, and the truffle oil on the fries was used sparingly (thankfully). Only let down was I ordered the steak medium rare, came out medium well to well. I didn't bother sending back due to the wait. Would probably go for a sandwich next time. Good enough to warrant a second try and the ambiance was perfect for conversation / business.

    I like that Bink's has a brunch menu that's not the same-old, same-old: there are creative and unusual small plates, shareables, and big plates too. My two biggest surprises were "truffled cheese whiz" which was a house made, whipped cheese sauce scented with truffle--AMAZING with fries--and the truffled ketchup, which I was about to ignore until my hubby said, "you must try this." Great place for foodies to brunch.

    Our group of six went to Bink's and experienced an unfortunate event. We were seated and then ignored for the next twenty minutes. My wife and the Maid of Honor had selected Bink's after searching for an appropriate restaurant for her wedding party to dine. She was extremely embarrassed that they finally had to get up and walk out of the establishment she had directed them to. The manager did call me later and explain that there was a mix-up about whom was supposed to serve that table and apologized. He also offered some amuse Bouche to make it up to us if we returned. The twenty-somethings wedding group was not interested in returning.

    we arrived at 6: 50 for our 7 P.M. reservation. We were there to celebrate our 54th wedding anniversary. However we got off to a shaky start. We ordered drinks, and they did not arrive for 30 minutes. The server said the bartender had not shown up so the manager was tending the bar. He did come over to apologize after my husband asked to see him. The food was delicious--our server and her assistants tried to help, but the start was not what we expected.

    The service was excellent, the setting quiet, very different than the typical lunch rush. We had the vegetable fritters and the pupusa for appetizers, they were quite tasty, the pupusa in particular was a hit. My dining companion had a chopped salad, which she liked and I had the bacon cheeseburger with an egg on it. Unfortunately the bun was a mess, it deteriorated quickly and I was forced to eat it with a knife and fork. The homemade potato chips were wonderful.

    We stopped by here on Saturday for happy hour and had the best meal! We sat at the bar and the service was outstanding. The curried popcorn they give you is out of this world. My margarita was made with fresh ingredients and was delish. We ordered off the happy hour which is a steal of a deal, but will definitely be back to order off the regular menu. All around great experience!
