The house salad was delicious
The house salad was delicious but wish it had more than one sliver of an orange and a little more cheese. Waitress was very pleasant and knowledgable concerning the menu.

A dining adventure. My companion
A dining adventure. My companion and I like to try new restaurants and new flavors, so we tend to share bites with each other. The wait staff was knowledgeable and friendly and able to make suggestions. Our selections included the Beet Terrine starter, house salad, fish of the day (flounder), veal porterhouse and strawberry custard for dessert. Paired with a nice Riesling and coffee. An excellent meal. I have mentioned it to several friends already.

The food was great! I had
The food was great! I had the brick chicken which was so tender and juicy! My friend had the burger. I had the opportunity to try some of the fries. They were absolutely delicious!! They were in a garlic sauce that made them taste amazing. I will definitely be going back to Interim!

It's been over a year since
It's been over a year since we've dined at interim and were not disappointed. The waiter was attentive, but did not interrupt our table discussions, helped with selections and our meals were fantastic. I had the hanger steak and requested the Brussels sprouts instead of fries and the chef accommodated the request - the combination was amazing. Our party had a great experience and We will be back again soon.

Lunch time discovery
1st time for lunch. Really enjoyed the vegetable plate. My husband asked for a side of cooard greens if possible though not on the menu and it was not a problem and they were great!

Better than expected!
I got the signature Interim Burger with carmelized onions and a fried egg on it, and it was the second best burger I've had in Memphis so far. They cooked the burger medium and it was tender, juicy, flavorful, and a descent size! Loved it!!

Great Mother's Day dinner!
We took our mothers here for Mother's Day and it was very special. Great atmosphere and very good wine list. The food is all seasonal and a majority is local; the menu was totally different from the last time we came here. It was a nice surprise. It's beautiful inside. I would recommend to anyone for a nice night out.

Good food. Inventive menu. I loved watching the action in the open kitchen.

Great restaurant, awesome dining experience, great food!
5/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
We arrived early in the srvice time and went right to our table. Drinks were excellent and the bartender made a new drink (for him) which was delicious.
Food was excellent and the presentation was well done. Our servers were friendly and attentive. I look forward to a return visit.

Everything was great from the appetizers to the entrees.

Take me back for lunch!
I was unaware of the open kitchen at Interim. It was fabulous. I wanted to stand at the counter and watch all those cooking back there. That being said, we dined with two other couples at dinner and never had any kitchen noise to distract our conversations. I plan to return soon and check out the lunch scene.
5/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great but a little noisy
The food was terrific. My only complaint would be the noise level. The bar area was particularly noisy. This is definetly not the place for an intimate, quiet dining experiece with friends. That being said, I am sure we will eat there again. The food was very good.

Had a great time with friends!
Had a great time with friends! The food was really good and our waiter Vincent was incredible. So friendly and helpful--he was outstanding. This place reminded me of New York, very chic and felt like this was where you needed to be!!!!!!!!!!!!

Never in my life have I ordered a hamburger for dinner while celebrating an anniversary with my wife, but boy am I glad I did. All I can say is OMG. I got the works, exquisite beef, cheese, onions, mushrooms and the fried egg. My wife ordered the more sensible fish of the day but she kept wanting to "taste" the burger. If you have never had this before you should and don't chicken out get everything. If you are familiar with military lingo, this is Sierra Hotel!

Watch your chefs prepare your meal.

Great for Special Occassions
Very good wine list and the food is delicious. This is a great place for celebrating special occassions. They have a wonderful cheese board, fried oysters, and the homemade mac & cheese is a must for appetizers. The burger is absolutely fabulous. We had the key lime and chocolate cake dessert and both were very, very good.

Great for special occasions
My husband and I had lunch to celebrate Loving Day. We both had the pasta special and shared a chocolate dessert. Wonderful meal and ambience for a special lunch.

*Interim never fails to deliver
As always, Interim is consistent with food quality and service. Look fiorward to returning as often as possible.

This was our third trip to
This was our third trip to Interim. Once again we had a wonderful meal. We ordered pan seared snapper with grits cake and the house salad. A favorite of mine are the fried artichokes which are served in the house salad mixed with oranges, feta cheese and hazelnuts. Food portions are surprisingly large and served with flair. My only critical comment is concerning the noise level. It was very loud...to the point that we had to "lean in" to hear each other talk. We noticed that other patrons were doing the same thing. Nonetheless, we will return... the food is excellent, and the restaurant is close to home.

Excellent Memphis Restaurant
Excellent food and very nice setting with an open kitchen. Nice wine list. We brought friends visiting from London, and they loved it.

Great food and great wine selection
Have only been a few times but each time the food was great, attentive service, and great wine selection by the glass! Love it!!

A New Twist on Southern Food
The chef at Interim fuses southern ingredients with cosmopolitan cooking techniques and flavorings for a delightful dining experience. My grilled and sliced hanger steak with a side of chimichurri sauce for dipping was paired with spicy home fries and sauteed collard greens. My wife had a delicious, lemon-ey glazed grouper filet with polenta and sauteed, mixed vegetables. A very pleasant meal in a modern and friendly environment.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had not been to Interim in a number of years. We were delighted with our choice! Everything was wonderful--food prepared to perfection, service excellent and a great bartender mixing up the cocktails! We will definitely return soon. The bartender made a Manhattan that was the best we had ever had.
We were seated immediately when we arrived! We don't mind waiting even when we have reservations for 10 or 15 minutes, but it was a NICE SURPRISE TO WALK RIGHT IN AND BE SEATED.

Great find in East Memphis
We were visiting Memphis on a business trip and stumbled on Interim. What an excellent experience. Nice bar when you first enter the restaurant, but the dining rooms are separate, so that the bar noise did not carry over to the dining room. The restaurant had a good crowd on a Wednesday night. Modern decor. Service was excellent. Small menu, but there are a variety of choices. I had the fish special - snapper. Perfectly cooked, the fish was fresh and flavorful. My companion had the trout - he loved it. Great wine list. No room for dessert. I highly recommend this restaurant when visiting (or living) in Memphis.
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
A friend and I have had Interim on our list of restaurants to try for several years. I am so glad we had a chance to experience it last week. I ordered the catfish with grits with order of eggplant. My friend ordered the fried oyster salad. The were both very good. We ended with the "bomb" key lime pie. It was as beautiful as it was delicious. I am looking forward to eating there again soon.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our best dining experience
We are just simply hooked on Interim. We love it. It is a top tier restaurant that could easily compete and win again other top tier restaurants outside of Memphis. That's how great it is. We have dined all over the country, and overseas, and we are happy to say that Interim is right up there with the best of them. We have dined at Interim about 5 times in the last 3 months, and it is perfect every time. The food is prepared with a passion for perfection and never disappoints. The service (Hal, Kari, Vincent) is perfect and always professional. The General Manager, Lisa and Andy are the best. Great team, great food and fun. The perfect, winning combination. Thank you! A+

Five friends and I enjoyed a Birthday celebration. Food and service were excellent. We were seated at the table we requested which is in a corner and quieter than sitting close to the cooking area.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
A good choice
I've been wanting to try Interim and I have heard good things from friends that have been there to dine. I had a friend from out of town join me for dinner and I thought that Interim would make a good impression and we would have a nice meal. I was right on all counts.
Excellent food and service. It was a bit more noisy than I anticipated but I would go back again to enjoy the great food.
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We eat here several times a year. The firs thing we noticed when we arrived was the health department score of 100. Not that we expected less, but it is certainly reassuring! Two of us ordered specials, which were great. The brick chicken was excellent. We enjoyed our evening and we will be back soon.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Interim is a HOT SPOT!!!
As usual, the food and service were Great! Even on a Thursday nite, the bar was full and the cocktails were EXTREMELY GOOD!!! A real Cosmopolitan place in East Memphs!!!

Enjoyed the sea bass and blackened redfish. Both entrees outstanding, with open kitchen food was the perfect temperature as it is delivered immediately. Very good service, server very familiar with wine pairings.

Great Brunch Spot
Great place for brunch if you are looking for simple and good food.

Great date night
The food and the service were great. It was really fun to watch them cook our food in the open kitchen. The waitstaff was very attentive and tried to meet our every need.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect for lunch. I had the Redfish Sandwich and side salad. My husband had the burger and fries. Large Portions. The Pear Blossom Martini was to die for. Service was friendly and efficient. We have eaten here for dinner and lunch and both are very good. We are going back again this week to try the Quinoa and Black Bean Burger.
If you have eaten here for dinner, try it for lunch.
8/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Wonderful experience. The food was excellent and service was great. We will definitely be returning to this restaurant to try some of the other entrees.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our server HAL must be one
Our server HAL must be one of the best in Memphis - professional and friendly, he knew instinctively when to be present and when not to be. The menu was very unique but not too off the wall for Memphis. The smoked trout pate, vegetable plate, and mahi mahi entree special were fabulous! We will definitely return. This restaurant is definitely worthy of bringing our NYC family to.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
What they do, they do well
The appearance and atmosphere was very nice. Service was great. The menu is rather limited, but everything we ordered from it was spectacular.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for entertaining clients
We took a vendor here for a dinner meeting - great atmosphere and able to discuss work without having to shout over a lot of noise. The food/atmosphere are phenominal and the service is always excellent.

Nifty Neighborhood Spot
Great food, although the presentation was a little unoriginal. Popular with an older crowd. Pretty good for Memphis.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent service and food.
Excellent service and food. The duck was moist, extremely flavorful, and well-balanced. Bread pudding was great and was paired with a honey-fennel ice cream. Probably the best Manhattan I've ever tasted. Would certainly go back.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
I really enjoyed The Food and overall service and appearance of the resturant. we were treated like royalty. My wife and I had dined there for lunch a couple of months ago. then a few nights ago for our date night with my brother and sister in law. the food once again was awesome, and the bread pudding I had for dessert was the best I ever had. I would defintely be returning very soon in the bear future.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Favorite place for me and my spouse and when we take our adult children.

We had a fantastic experienced at Interim. The food was perfect and service was outstanding.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
My husband and I really enjoyed our dinner at Interim. The food was excellent with good size portions. The flavors were excellent and the waitress was very helpful. I really enjoy watching the chiefs in the kitchen. That means something if you have nothering to hide. Everything is open view. The funny thing is that it never took away from our conversation. It was not loud or intrusive. You can watch and see that the chefs have skills. That in itself was entertainment. Great meal.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great as always
Second time eating here. A+ again. If I lived in Memphis year round, this place would see me every week. Very, very good.
