                                                        The Midtown is a very good place to dine in Santa Fe. I note that prices are up considerably ...but that's today's reality, I guess. I had the chicken breast with vegetables and polenta. It wasn't chicken breast; it was a chicken thigh, and the polenta square was tasteless. Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, I enjoyed the play!

                                                        Everything was fabulous. The food was exceptional and our waiter was attentive but not intrusive. Going back very soon!

                                                        A little pricey for food quality and atmosphere. Menu is too limited in terms of entrees. Dessert menu had several unavailable items, and the bread basket was a little stale.

                                                        A bit of a challenge to find as an out-of-towner, but worth the effort. From the outside, the restaurant didn't look too promising, but once inside it was all we were expecting. We arrived early in the evening and thought we might have the place to ourselves. But, lots of regulars and visitors showed up shortly after we arrived. The service was prompt and courteous and the food was excellent and prepared to perfection. Would return if ever in the area again.

                                                        We have been going to Midtown Bistro for years now. It has always been consistently good. Great food, service etc... This past time we went, it was still very good but the prices had increased greatly! We used to think of it as a place where the food, service, etc was a great value. It has really gotten too expensive for us to continue going... Am sad!

                                                        Midtown Bistro is one of my favorite places to eat in Santa Fe. If it is a warm day, eat outside on their lovely patio. Trust the staff recommendations, and try the calamari!

                                                        Midtown Bistro is my go-to place to eat for any occasion. Food is always excellent, service is always friendly and professional. I feel safe there during this trying time. Can't wait for the patio to open and for Sunday Brunch to return.

                                                        Let’s just say that it was disappointing. I looked on line prior to the visit to check on pricing and food choices. It really didn’t match up or was accurate at all. Prices were actually much higher than what is listed on line. It was freezing inside the restaurant. I’m not sure there was heat on. That made for an uncomfortable dining experience. Service was slow. I believe the waiter was trying but there were periods of time when he was MIA. Portions are definitely small for the price. I was expecting more and they just didn’t deliver. Maybe it was an off night.

                                                        Midtown Bistro was a very pleasant surprise! The food and service was beyond excellent. Had the filet mignon and it was prepared to perfection! Green chili mashed potatoes were out of this world! Had drinks before dinner at the bar! Brandon made fantastic cocktails! Will definitely be back!

                                                        Food, service, ambiance was excellent. The menu is kind of limited. Would like to see more choices.

                                                        Midtown Bistro never fails in the quality of the food and service. It is our “go to place” when dining out in Santa Fe. It is not downtown, so tourists have discovered it yet!

                                                        Midtown Bistro was first rate as always. My wife and I shared an order of chicken taquitos to start after which she had the Cobb salad while I had the fish and chips. All were excellent. Our server was Brandon was very good and efficient. All in all a very pleasant experience.

                                                        This is an old "go to" place which we really like and would recommend to a friend. The food is quite good. The menu is imaginative. I graded this particular experience lower than usual as the service was so wanting. It should be noted that our experience took place on Valentine's Day for a pricey prefix four course dinner. The temptation for management is to maximize revenue on these sort of windfall days by overbooking and Midtown Bistro was no exception and perhaps understandable when one considers the hit restaurants have taken during the pandemic. But in the end, service, and routine attention to the table was so lacking. . .it took us a full two hours from the time of our original reservation to receive our entree for example. And it is ruinous for the evening to have to intercept one's waiter time and again to attend to diner requests.

                                                        Special occasions and holidays with their full bookings are especially stressful, but provide an opportunity to impress a large audience. On Valentine's Day, Midtown Bistro neared perfection with a 4-course fixe menu. Goat cheese croquette appetizer, lobster bisque, sea bass and steak and lobster entrees were excellent. Service was timely and attentive. Only overcooked, tough calamari and pedestrian key lime pie missed the mark. Still a favorite for imaginative cuisine.
