Food is always spot on, never had a bad meal. Highly recommend this.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious and inviting atmosphereThis was one of our favorite nites out in almost a week spent in Memphis.

Our experience on a very busy evening in Memphis was outstanding. Food was great as usual and service was too. We had plenty of time to get to our MSO concert!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGood EatsWe had thd most amaxing dining experience. We made reservations for our one year wedding anniversary and could jot have chosen a better place to ear. It was recommended to us by a few friends in Memphis! It was delicious and we will recommend this place to anyone who asks! It was absolutly delicious!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMA Diamond in Downtown's RoughI can't believe this was my first visit to McEwen's after all these years. I'm not too mesmerized with the Downtown food scene. They come and go, but I know that McEwen's has shepherded the scene for the last decade.
I recommend ordering a variety of small plates in order to get the feel of Chef Keith's culinary blueprint. I started with the soup de jour, which was poblano and crab chowder- I wanted a few more bowls because that was out of this world. Then I had the appetizer portion of piccata-style scallops with grits and small plate saffron lobster risotto. The scallops were some the best I have ever eaten. They were buttery goodness with bold flavor. The lobster risotto was great, but I should have ordered a better wine pair.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentWe had such a wonderful meal at this restaurant that we could have eaten there two nights in a row. We were on a road trip and wanted to try other places but this was one of the tops!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA gem of downtown diningA great place to get quality food at a reasonable price. Consistent as well. For big groups ask for the table in the wine cellar5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWaitress was amazing: attentive,Waitress was amazing: attentive, sweet, intelligent, patient. Food was spectacular and very well prepared. Vibrant atmosphere.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great Date PlaceWe were in town for the BMA's and heard alot about McEwen's. We weren't disappointed. My wife had the mushroom salad and I had the oysters as appetizers. The oysters were plump, not greasy and properly breaded. For a main course I had the Osso Buco, excellent. The missus had two appetizers as her main course, the pork tenderloins and the lobster risotto. She raved about both plates. The wine list is fairly priced. Excellent service.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorable experienceFood was absolutely great! Table setting was nice, the whole ambience is welcoming. The only downside is that room is kind of small, and when all tables are occupied noise is too loud.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMEnergetic is the right wordThe food was excellent, but would not be my choice again for a romantic evening. It was very difficult to have a conversation without yelling at your partner. That is acceptable at the bar, but not for dinner.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat MealWe very much enjoyed our dinner. The staff was very supportive and friendly. The small plates menu was perfect. Food range was very good for all types of Foodies. Menu provided a good range for all interest. Great experience. We'll be back.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food - Limited MenuMenu has a nice variety of offerings as well as a vegetarian plate. Food was fantastic...presentation very nice. Only complaint I would have is that towards the evening our waitress seemed to get lost...forgot one of the guests desserts had to be reminded...Nice atmoshere; good for business dinner or anniversary/special occasion. Intimate setting, bar area separate from dining area, which I thought was very nice.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding dining experience.Outstanding dining experience. A little noisy for the size but had to forgive that with the excellent food and amazing server.
