We always enjoy eating at Midtown Bistro and this was no exception. Also we were late and got there just before closing on Sunday and they still served us with grace and excellent service and food.

Usually good, but this time, entertaining an out-of-town friend, the appetizer had to be sent back, the salad dressing was a bit sweet, and the patio lighting (this is after dark) was that neither I nor the waitperson could read the wine menu. This restaurant, where I have eaten several times, is usually much better so I would still recommend it, but this particular evening it disappointed.

Very nice brunch/lunch at Midtown Bistro. The parking on Sunday was not good as there is a dance/yoga studio nearby that meets then. But once we found a place, both the inside and outside seating were great. We were there about 11:30 and got waited on very quickly. By 12:30, the place was packed and so service slowed down some. Food was excellent!

It's a little pricey, but the menu has a nice selection of items to pick from and the food is tasty. Sunday brunch was a little disappointing. It wasn't as good as usually . The food, and service were a little off, and there were so many flies that it became uncomfortable eating. I wouldn't recommend eating outdoors. Sunday brunch menu was a little boring.
Ambiance 1* because of the flies.

Manhattan was average. Need to use the Luxardo cherrie, not the day glow red ones.

Midtown Bistro is a true Santa Fe gem. The food is always excellent and the patio can't be beat for a quiet lunch or delicious brunch. The beautiful indoor space is perfect for a special dinner. Service is attentive but not overbearing.

I appreciated the fact that the staff left us to talk and be throughout the night. It was not busy so we were not taking tables that otherwise would have been turned so i appreciated that they were unobtrusive and accommodating.

Food was good, Steaks were properly cooked and our ketogenic requests were well met.

This was our third time at Midtown Bistro since moving to Santa Fe to live a year ago. The service and food are wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed our arugula salad and then our salmon with quinoa as our main course. Midtown Bistro is one of our fine dining go-to spots in Santa Fe. We will return!

We love Midtown Bistro. The food is always excellent. The waitress was good but the bus person/water person was excellent. Not sure how they assign tables to the wait staff. The ambiance is very relaxing. Good for Sunday brunch.

Although it was not a special occasion, the courtyard and subtle background music made it feel like one. My lobster pasta with oyster mushrooms was delicious! The service was excellent. A very nice experience.

Food was great. The prosciutto-wrapped peaches in my date's salad, and the green chile mashed potatoes with my ribeye were particular highlights. Seating was in the outdoor patio, and the guitar music was an elegant accompaniment to the meal. Service was attentive and friendly. I have been to Midtown Bistro a couple times before for lunch; this was our first time there for dinner. We will definitely be back.

My husband and I have become regulars here. It's one of about 3 favorite spots for lunch (we don't eat dinner out) and the summer patio seating is quite sweet. The wait staff are always pleasant and efficient, and the food, of course, is good. It's not 'FINE' dining, but the lunch menu is above average, and the food is reliably satisfying. The Tuna Nicoise is a favorite. If you like bread, you may be disappointed with the bread basket.

Great neighborhood gem. Only 10 minutes from the plaza. Good diversity in their menu. It was just a casual recommendation from a local. We tried it and we're pleasantly surprised. Will definitely go again when in Santa Fe.

I was treated to a delightful birthday lunch by one of my employees. The ambiance was perfect - outside on the patio with a bubbling fountain next to our table. The two salads we ordered were outstanding: nicoise and cobb, and reasonably priced, and the meal was preceded by a tasty amuse bouche. I kind of expected a little "special" treatment since the restaurant was aware it was my birthday, but nothing...other than the tasty food, and in the end, that was birthday gift enough.

My friend and I had brunch on the patio on a Saturday and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The patio is charming and the food was delicious. There were so many good choices on the menu that it was hard to decide which to pick. I had the crab cakes with a good side salad and was very happy. My friend had a soup which she thought was wonderful.
