Our goal is to remind our patrons what a good restaurant is all about.

Midnight Blue Restaurant & Lounge reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Moderate.

    Dined on 10/13/2012
    The service here is awkward. At least 4 different people serviced our table and would come one right after the other while you had food in your mouth and in mid conversation. It was difficult to have a conversation with my friend as we kept being interrupted with things they should have just done on ques. It seemed as though it was everyone's first day...being a server...anywhere. The ambiance is cool I suppose. We were there for an early dinner and the crowd was questionable, not my style. The food was moderate. Nothing exceptional, not even the special. Its a decent local spot. They have an upstairs lounge area. I will check that out at some point.

    First time at this restaurant. The red sauce is delicious, almot as good as my Mother! the music is a bit too loud which at times makes it difficult to carry a conversation without shouting. otherwise, definitely a place I would recommend and most likely will return.

    Consistently good service and the food is good too. My only criticism is that the kids portion of fries is far too big. I always get another plate and manage to get enough fries from both my children's plate to fill another plate!

    Our brunch party of 3 had the smoked salmon omelet, the linguine with white clam sauce, and the western omelet. All were good, and the service was very nice, friendly, efficient and attentive. Bloody Marys were yum also. The subway construction outside does not help the ambience; I wouldn't sit outside. But I would definitely go back. The clam sauce was delicious so I'd like to try their dinner entrees.

    We eat at Midnight Blue about 3 times a month. In fact, we were there the night before with friends who really enjoyed it. My only disappointment was that they ran out of corn beef and cabbage on St. Patrick's Day, our sole purpose for going back the next day.

    The food was excellent however it was noisy due to small kids in Resturant . I suggest they open top level for a quiet time and bottom for family dining. Good value for the $$

    Food was very good and prices were reasonable. It's a shame they are ripping up 2nd ave, it takes away from the ambiance of this place.

    The Italian entrees and soups were delicious. My bf says the steak was not memorable. But we ordered the lobster bisque and french onion soup and they were good! The sangria was delish! And berry mojito is amazing. The white clam sauce with pasta is good. The penne la vodka pasta was good. Fresh Bread good.

    The food wasn't very good at all. It was edible, but I wouldn't return. Two pasta dishes were over-sauced and salty. Sorry, have nothing more to offer.

    new owner - friendly and eager to please -- 'regular' Italian..and, did I say 'nice, friendly, eager to please?' - sometimes that's just more important than anything else! hope the diners come - it's a 'wicked' corner - 2nd ave and 85th -- hidden by the construction.
