Midtown Bistro is our ladies go-to place for a quiet, catch-up luncheon. We know that the service is going to be great, the food is going to be delicious and the ambience is perfect whether we sit inside or outside. Several of us couples enjoy it for dinner too for all the same reasons!

It was Mother's Day and much busier than usual. The noise level was higher for that reason. It's usually nice and quiet.

Edmund Cathanach and his buddy chef make this a must visit restaurant. When the warm weather persists, try the garden outside for Sunday brunch. You will not regret it!

We liked the warmth of the waiter that served us. The quality of the service makes a huge difference to the enjoyment of the experience. His was one of calm efficiency with warmth. The food was great as well.

Nice restaurant, best food we have had in Santa Fe for a while. Tried all the big names, no wow factor. Quite because only five or six tables taken. Will go back. Wine prices a little high.

Great meal once again--worked well with a 3 year old. Even though they do not have a children's menu a pasta plate or appetizer works well for a child. The chocolate mousse was devoured by the three year old!

The service was excellent and the food was very, very good. The wine by the glass was a little pricey so they should have a few $6 per options. The Calamari and its dipping sauce was outstanding.

Servers needed to be reminded to bring an requested item, 4 times before it arrived. Also servers needed requests for more coffee 3 times. Other than servers needing more training, this is a standby good place for Sinday brunch.

We enjoyed a lovely Easter lunch with friends. It’s great to be able to order holiday meals from the menu, rather than being stuck with an expensive prix fixe meal.

Nearly everything was perfect, including the simple, beautiful roses on the tables. I would have preferred for our server to wait until we had taken a bite or two of our meals before asking if everything was ok. Other than that quibble, we were very happy.

Birthday. They set the table to honor my friend and s candle in her dessert. It was wonderful.

Parking is impossible. That is the only drawback that keeps me from frequenting the restaurant.

We took friends from South Africa to dinner.Wonderful service and excellent menu.......we were all 50 years plus....like Inovative cuisine bur prefer the excellent standards that they provide.......I think you get it no SWEETBEADS with pomegranate sauce here ......love restaurants that try all this around the world...but one this restaurant and now they have full bar. Have been many times and it is a hidden retreat for those in the foodie know .....Obviously I will also entertain overseas and domestic guests here.

The decor inside is very Attractive and nice. The food is outstanding and the service when we were there was excellent. They now have a bar with a full serving of cocktails and other beverages. The prices are reasonable, especially compared to some of the other nice restaurants in Santa Fe. We will be going back soon.

I took friends/clients to brunch and it was great. Not great was the lack of parking in the parking lot. There was not one available space and I had to park in the street. This was Sunday at 10:30 am. There were only a handful of diners in the restaurant at that time and I was told most of the parked cars were for folks in the neighboring Excercise Place. They should not be taking all your parking places for your diners.

The food and the service were excellent. We were large party (10 people) making a same day reservation to celebrate an engagement. Many in the group had not seen each other in a while so appreciated staff's no-hurry approach that was attentive while being non-intrusive. Food is creative, well-prepared, and delicious. They happily offered to substitute for a member of our group with food sensitivities. Midtown Bistro is just consistently good and an enjoyable dinning experience.
