Our order was taken and delivered.
The only time we saw waiter.

Drink from bar was not what was ordered.

I took my friend for brunch for her birthday. We were there for a full two hours, because service took so long. It took an entire hour before we got our tepid food. I would have liked to have ordered dessert, but it would have added an extra hour to the experience, so we skipped it.

We go to Midtown Bistro as a "special occasion" venue, and did so recently in honor of becoming fully-vaccinated against covid 19. Our only complaint, which is minor given our overall experience, is that service is somewhat slow until one's order is placed, when it picks up (there was no one to greet us when we arrived and once seated we sat by ourselves for about 10 minutes before a server came). But if you factor that into going there, the rest is excellent. Ambiance, service (once it starts!), food choices and quality, portion control, and pricing for a "special occasion" dinner all perfectly acceptable.

Wonderful restaurant that isn't stuffy, yet elegantly relaxing. The menu gives a variety of options. I ordered the chicken breast with goat cheese and polenta which was wonderful!

A kind and thoughtful wait staff seated us outdoors by an amazing outdoor display of flowers, perfect plantings to shape the mood. Met a longtime friend for lunch and the food was extraordinary, with salmon and risotto done to perfection. A perfect meal in a quiet, natural outdoor setting. Impeccable service.

I had the halibut and my husband the crab cakes. Both were delicious. For dessert, we shared a Tres Leches cake of top quality, with Caffè Latte for both of us. Before dinner, we had a Dry Martini (my husband) and a Negroni (I). They were very good. My husband had also a glass of Pinot Noir. Our dinner was just perfect.

A real gem! Our party of three ate lunch here. We all ordered something different and the meals all arrived simultaneously. Each entree was beautifully prepared and presented, and the portions were generous and delicious! The atmosphere was lovely and service outstanding. I only wish I could have stayed longer.

I suggested Midtown Bistro to a friend for her birthday lunch, because I love Midtown Bistro. She, nor the two other friends she invited, had been there before. I arrived a little bit early to alert the host (a very nice, young man) that this was a birthday lunch, what the birthday girl looked like, and gave him a packet of candles to put on the birthday girl's dessert. It was only a matter of a few minutes, before the other ladies arrived, and when we walked to our table, "Happy Birthday" had already been written on the paper table cover, and birthday confetti strewn over it as well. I was so happy and pleased! It really helped with the special event, and ambiance. BTW, everyone also loved, and appreciated the fresh, beautiful, roses on the table, that were on all the tables. No one else in town does that, at least not beautiful, big, roses. I just invited another friend to lunch at your restaurant, for her birthday. Will see you a lot more this year! I also loved my omelette with asparagus. The asparagus was tender and perfectly cooked. So delicious! Everyone really liked their food, delicious desserts, and Mimosas as well. Your servers were just great! As you can tell, I can't say enough about Midtown Bistro. 💗

Went in for a simple meal. Had the Caesar salad which was soggy and tasteless. Also had a chicken breast, which had to be sent back because it was under cooked. Service service was slow and somewhat inattentive. No apologies, nothing. I’m not sure I’ll go back there.

I quite enjoy the Bistro. My calamar lunch, however, was kind of tasteless, ditto the salad.
I don't care about gluten-free food. I prefer m food to have taste. Be brave!

Midtown Bistro has become our go-to place for brunch on Sunday. I think I have tried everything on the menu and enjoyed every bite. Of course I do have favorites: the salmon with risotto is outstanding. The Ruben has just the right amount of sauerkraut, a little tangy without being sour. It is big enough to take half home for supper. The chef provides a lagniappe (that's Cajun for "a little something extra")--a delicious bite. For dessert try the Tres Leches. It's the best. Our server, Maythe, and Andrea have become like family. They will welcome you to Midtown Bistro, too.

This was the first time for us we were traveling thru Santa Fe, actually found this restaurant with the help of your app.
We were greeted on our arrival, and seated quickly. Staff was knowledgeable and friendly and efficient. The menu was very interesting, ordered the Salmon and the Chicken.
Arrived in a timely manner, they were busy,could have been a little slow, but was not. Both dishes were delicious . Our compliments to Angel Estrada and staff. GREAT EXPERIENCE!

Absolutely fabulous. Not a lot of fine dining patio options open for lunch right now so just eat here all the time! Calamari appetizer could've used a little seasoning post-fry, and the aioli didn't make up for it, but the citrus sauce was divine. Both entrees (salmon risotto and pasta of the day) were excellent, and the server's wine recommendation was perfect (a rosé). Gorgeous patio, felt Covid safe, and the staff was there when we needed them and otherwise hands-off. I am going back within the week.

First time out with my girlfriends to celebrate a birthday in well over a year. It was a real treat!! Everything was just great. They decorated the table and sang happy birthday to us. We had hoped to sit outside but it was too windy so they put us indoors and it was fine. I felt very safe. Great lunch, great service. Looking forward to good sgsin

It was an everyday dining occasion but it was also a meal w/ friends (we were a group of 4) - a celebration b/c we’ve all received our Covid vaccinations and felt a little more free to eat at a restaurant together. This restaurant is a very safe place.

The food and service were both terrific. The only issue with this restaurant is parking - but welcome to Santa Fe.
