We went to celebrate my wife's new job, food and service were excellent. If there were any draw backs to our experience it was that the server was sat with a large part right as we were finishing up. This cause the check to be a little delayed. As I stated though the service was great I believe the large table was to blame because they begun to monopolize the servers time.

Wait staff is assigned too many tables at peak hours to provide service expected of a five star restaurant

McEwen's is an excellent restaurant with a very creative menu. The local tapas were a nice touch and really interesting. My party had fish, scallops and lamb; all were outstanding. I would recommend the items with a southern twist on classic foods.

It was a great dinner, but way to noisy to comfortably converse about business (or much of anything else). It would be great if there were rooms set aside for those diners who need to eat and talk (preferably not at the same time!) without raising the volume to an unacceptable level.
Otherwise, dinner was great!

The loved the lighting and the warm and relaxed feeling of the place. The Merlot was smooth. The grilled salmon was delicious! The asparagus was cooked perfectly. I especially loved the bed of rice with a mixture of nuts that the grilled salmon was displayed on! The service was great. Our server was a delightful young lady who did an impeccable job! We will definitely return!

McEwen's on Monroe was a great place to take my boyfriend for his birthday. We both enjoyed our steaks, but especially the banana cream pie! Sometimes we go just for the pie, so it was nice to eat our whole meal there as well. It's a good price for the quality of food.

We went to McEwen’s before going to the Orpheum Theatre. It was within walking distance. We had heard about McEwen’s for years. I’m so glad we finally ate there. The food was excellent. The atmosphere was great. The service staff was very efficient. The whole experience was delightful.
