The Midtown Bistro has become our go-to place for Sunday lunch/brunch. We can choose between both menus! We are rare--we like to eat indoors on these hot afternoons. They accommodate us, when possible, while observing social distancing. The service is always outstanding and personalized. The food consistently good; the soups outstanding. The ambiance, quiet with soft jazz playing. We 48-50 weeks per year.

Terrific all around. Can recommend Crabcake lunch, and the key lime pie! Great service from Philippe.

Where to eat during a pandemic besides home? Midtown Bistro. They're careful, they're pleasant, they're respectful, and the food is delicious. I had never been here for brunch, and I had never eaten outside. This time I did both. What a treat!

The food is a bit hit or miss, depending on what you order. The steak and cheese enchiladas were the best entree. It was absolutely delicious. The tiger prawn appetizer was missing something. The corn soup was very good. The steak was pretty good but not great.

The calamari was excellent and the stuffed chicken and pork chop are excellent choices. My husband's key lime pie was very good but my chocolate cake was a bit dry. We went on a Tuesday night and it was very quiet. We had excellent service and would definitely eat here again, I'm sure its really nice on the patio in warmer weather!

I was not aware that it was Restaurant Week, so the only choice we had was a fixed price meal for $45. It was very crowded, and it reminded me of eating at a restaurant for Thanksgiving - the waiters were running around like crazy trying to serve everyone. First I had a ceasar salad. I asked for it with dressing on the side. It was covered with nice pieces of parmesan cheese. The waiter took it and brought another. The new one he brought was just a bunch of broken up lettuce on the plate - no cheese - and no other ingredients.

For the main course, I had the chicken which was in some kind of sauce that tasted strongly of vinegar. The polenta that it came on was the best part! My husband had veal which he said was "meh". Desert was another disappointment. We had Tres Leches cake. It was super dry with what tasted like whip cream for the topping. I can get a better Tres Leches at the supermarket. $150 later, we left, totally unsatisfied. For that price, the food should have been amazing.

We entertained out of state guests (San Antonio, Texas) who commented positively on the overall experience which was very good. We use Midtown Bistro for special events (birthdays, anniversaries, etc) because while it is a good value for Sfe, it is a little pricey for our budget.

We had forgotten it was Restaurant Week in Santa Fe when we made the reservation. The dining room was pretty full but the quality of the food and the service did not suffer. One reason we like MidTown Bistro is the noise level is low so conversation is easy.

A long wait just to be seated, definitely understaffed for Valentine’s Day evening. Long waits for food and even basic table service. Staff seemed overwhelmed, but trying. When my 50.00 entree of sea bass was served, the entire meal was cold.

My husband had chicken and it was the best he ever had. So tender. I had sea bass. I thought it would be a bit tastier and not hot for the price.We went on Valentine’s Day and was not aware of the fixed menu and they would not accommodate a basic pasta dish for my 9 year old so we had to send $32 on a fancy pasta dish.

Midtown Bistro has always been a consistent favorite of ours. Valentine's Day was a huge disappointment. There were several inaccurate communications from the restaurant I won't go into, service errors, and lackluster food. My husband's salad greens weren't fresh and the rib-eye steak was average if that. We did enjoy the lobster and I liked the mashed potatoes. We'll probably try again and blame this experience on a busy Valentine's Day
