It is always the most delicious food, service was great and even though we were there on a Sunday for brunch/lunch and the restaurant was crowded, the noise level was not insulting- you can hear your companion and speak in normal tones

We visited Midtown Bistro for Valentines Day and had a lovely experience. The service was outstanding and the meal did not disappoint. The only negative aspect was the temperature. It was extremely hot in the dining room that evening. That would not deter me from revisiting. It was probably due to the chilly and rainy evening we had that night.

This is one of the best restaurants I have experienced. The service was excellent. The food was wonderful. Wine options were very good . Our waiter was great and the service of water, bread and removal of dishes was done in a way that never interfered with your dinner.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Santa Fe ,New Mexico

Had a wonderful dinner here. Food was excellent and the menu has very good variety. Service was attentive but not intrusive. It got crowded as the evening went on but not noisy. Can’t wait til the weather warms up and we can try lunch on their patio!

My 2 friends & I had lunch @ Mid-town thus week. It wasn’t any special occasion but it somehow felt like a celebration. The Bistro atmosphere is very elegant but not too formal or stuffy. The red & black leather chairs & the white table cloths are very classy. Our waiters were very attentive without hovering or rushing us.
The food ( Salad Nicoise with shrimp / tuna)
was delicious. We truly enjoyed our lunch & were able to have s nice conversation.
I will return for sure ( on Monday 2/25 for a friend’s birthday dinner!)
Regards

One of my favorite restaurants. However, with our recent visit two of our 4 person party ordered the crab cakes in which each found shell. The other two were highly satisfied with their meals. It was too bad for the ones who were getting what they thought was a special menu item to find the cleaning of the crab shell was less than professional

The food is always good--good selection, preparation, plating. We had crab cakes, Scottish salmon, and flank steak with an enchilada. Everything was good. Wines by the glass are well chosen and generously poured. Service is friendly and professional.

Thank you to management for getting us in on Christmas Eve, despite a glitch in OpenTable gave them the time I made the reservation, instead of the time I had needed the table (my email confirmation was correct but their records were not - and the same happened to two other parties at the same time).

The wait staff was quite cordial; the rack of lamb was delicious, as were the Cesar salad and the calamari. Aside from the 40 min wait for our table (again, that’s on OpenTable, not Midtown), a great Christmas Eve meal.

Great Christmas Eve dinner. We had the lamb, which was a little tough, hence the downgrade on food. The rack was not Frenched far enough up the bone, and the chops were close to impossible to separate even with a steak knife. One of my medium - rare racks was delivered raw and totally inedible, but the other one was perfectly cooked.
The desserts more than made up for any shortcomings in the entree. The sticky toffee pudding was amazing, as were the ice creams and home made sauces. Service was prompt, friendly, and very accommodating when my companion ordered a cocktail (Rob Roy) that the young bartender had likely never heard of. We will go back.

Wonderful atmosphere for special occasions: White table clothes, red chairs. Tastefully festive. Food was good too. Starting with a Caesar salad. Three different entrees: vegetarian, salmon and pasta of the day each special and delicious in their own way. The tres leches cake was shared by the three of us and as delicious as I've ever had. Only disappointment was the bread. Sliced and unheated.

Enrique and staff are always attentive and willing to please. The cuisine is tasty, fresh with a nice presentation. Everyone smiles and appears to enjoy the chance to serve. This place is a popular choice for many. The atmosphere is pleasantly quiet with soft music that allows for conversation.
Can be quite busy but a consistent and dependable entree is delivered every time.

We went for a birthday. They had a special table set up, with birthday confetti. The service was exceptional. We both loved our entrees, but thought the deserts were a bit lackluster. However, Mid-Town Bistro remains one of our favorites, and we will return soon.
