This is our go to local restaurant... early bird happy hour in bar is unbeatable for good food and drinks at reasonable prices..
The restaurant menu is very good as well..
We will go wherever Enrique is serving because he is the best person and waiter there is...
Patio is so great in warm weather but bar is cozy and warm.. in winter .

I ordered a steak with watercress. It arrived dressed, tho I had asked for dressing to be on the side. The steak was fine. The watercress as a huge pile which took up 2/3 of the plate. For me watercress is something I am willing to eat a bit of, but not this overwhelming amount. It was very off putting and it was my mistake not to have sent it back for something else. I treated 2 others to lunch (they cleaned their plates) and the bill was over $100. I left feeling disheartened. Helen Cahn

There is not a better lunch than the Midtown Bistro in Santa Fe NM. Sit and dine on their gorgeous garden patio and enjoy their impecable service and ambiance. They are very fair about pricing too.

Cobb salad had no flavor; bland! Green chile chicken soup had zero chile flavor. Seared tuna on Nicoise was under "seared" with bad smell and flavor.

I had eaten here before with a friend but only had a lunch salad and it was good. I brought my daughter for brunch last Sunday. I ordered a sangria which was the worst. I had eggs Benedict, the hollandaise sauce was flavorless, the eggs under poached and it was very pricey 17. I would have been better off with an Egg McMuffin

We've eaten there twice within the past week and enjoyed eating outside both times. Very comfortable, well prepared food, excellent service, and reasonable prices = great value. The sign out by the street is quite small and we drove past the place the first time.

Living nearby, Midtown Bistro is my "go to" place for dinner with out of town friends, local friends, special occasions, and just a special night out. Patio dining is wonderful during the summery seasons. Always a treat!

Been here a few times, and never fails to please in all areas. The young lad, Brandon, who was our waiter, was attentive and courteous, tinged with an excellent sense of humour, as were his colleagues. A little gem of a restaurant tucked away behind a "Stone Forest" with the sound of water from fountains, which adds to the ambiance.

Wow what a find! We were looking for someplace to eat and stumbled upon the Midtown bistro. They asked us whether we wanted to eat inside or out and we were sold when we heard the music coming from the patio. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner, it was tasty and well prepared. Plan to go on Friday or Saturdays there is a jazz guitarist that we enjoyed. We also enjoyed the outside patio as it adjoins Santa Fe stone with stone fountains on the grounds The fountains were on display on the patio, the active water added to the delightful ambiance.

Midtown Bistro is housed in a warehouse building and atmosphere is casual. The bistro was warm and a little stuffy. Service was friendly but very slow. The potato and corn bisque was nicely done. The arugula salad was good. My wife's chicken was a bit on the dry side but had nice flavor. The pork chop was good. We skipped dessert because we didn't want to wait. All in all, good food, but with so many other great choices in Santa Fe, doubt we will go back.

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.
