Had a table by the kitchen and the bathroom. The lights from the kitchen were right in my eyes, while people behind me were constant going to restrooms. Love this restaurant, but they should do away with this table for what we spent on our meal. Excellent food and service.

First time visit. Service by Michael was excellent. Food was good. Tables were a tad small for the 4 of us. The vibe of the place was very neat.

The food was very good. The service left a lot to be desired. Looking around there are several areas that need addressed to include ventilation along with indications of leakage in the ceiling.

The grilled lamb sirloin was charred way too much it overtook the taste of the actual sirloin itself.

We arrived 29 minutes before our reservation and asked if we could be seated. The Hostess seated us and we had plenty of time to pick her mind about the menu as we had never had small plates before.
Mary guided us through everything and we had a great experience.
Food was amazing!

Most delicious vegetarian entree I have eaten in Memphis and I’ve been trying to eat veg here for 28 years!
Flavorful, generous and NOT a mix of garnishes from other entrees (SO many restaurants in Memphis do this, as if we
can’t tell ....). Small dishes were also excellent as was swordfish and salmon entrees. Service was well timed and professional.

Only complaint was our table which was the worst situated in the house. Back of the room where a cold draft from the basement or outside door kept sweeping in and we had a great view of the drinks stand. Which they could “hide” those two areas a little better.

But we will be back!

The food was really good. I had the Red snapper special and it was so good! We we’re given biscuits which was a nice touch. Overall it was a good experience with good food. It was fairly loud on a Friday night but that’s expected.

Excellent! We were seated promptly and our server was pleasant and responsive. The menu options available provided a nice variety from which to choose. We went the tapas route and shared several items between two. The short rib was phenomenal and we asked for seconds on the biscuits - deLISH!!! Being from the DC area and looking for a nice lower key venue for a good cocktail and wine along with a nice menu, McEwen's definitely fit the bill. Of note, when we booked our reservation, only high-top tables were available in the bar area - don't let that deter you - McEwen's has a very pleasant vibe all around.

Overall the evening was ok. The issues where the complete lack of any type of personality to being overall rude and ignored by our server. From the minute we got there until left we did not feel welcome or a guest more of a way to make money. That is unfortunate as this is one of our favorite places. This was for my fathers 65th birthday and while he can’t out a ton when we do go out he always wants to go to McEwens. When making the reservations we mentioned that exact thing and while we were sure that it wasn’t going to be or needed to be anything large but even the waitress saying “oh I heard it was your birthday congratulations” or anything would have been nice. The server we had was quite possibly the most bland, unenthusiastic, lethargic, and uninterested server I have ever had. We told the hostess on our exit thank you of all things and we just got puzzled and odd looks. We are extremely displeased by the entire experience and while it wouldn’t have upset me as much my Father now is unsure if he ever wants to come back.

When I moved to downtown Memphis, the real estate agent said “you must eat at McEwen’s because it’s fabulous.” He was correct. Very attentive staff, nice ambiance, well balanced menu. Starters, entrees and desserts were perfect!
