Wonderful restaurant. Attentive to detail. This is the 3rd time we've been and all our visits have been top drawer. If you're looking for a special place, this is it! Linen tablecloths and elegant.

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.

We dined at Midtown for our Thanksgiving dinner. They featured a special ala carte menu which included the traditional and inspired. The place was hopping. Service was friendly but a little inconsistent. Highly recommend.

We had Thanksgiving dinner here. It's difficult to serve that many people all day long a good hot meal. We had the traditional turkey dinner and it was pretty good. Very much like home-cooking. We weren't blown away by the flavors, etc., but we had a very nice dinner and we are anxious to go back to try their regular menu. The staff is excellent. Very accommodating, friendly and professional. This restaurant is worth a try if you have never been to it. It's off the regular Plaza or Canyon Road area, but in a newer fun area of town. We recommend it!

Great meal and great service! Was disappointed with where they sat us, a table in middle of the room about a foot away from the table next to us. We did ask to be reseated and they were able to.

Always excellent, with fine service. This time we were seated in the dining area off the bar, with a lovely view of the outdoor patio. It was my first time in that room, and I will request it again for the future - especially near the window.

This is a Santa Fe locals' favorite, although visitors are appearing regularly...especially visitors of locals! We love the quiet ambiance of MB and the ability to linger over the table with quiet conversations next to and across from friends. The food is reliably good and beautifully prepared. I do wish MB would have more specials. There was one the night of our dining--a vegetarian pasta. The BEST Tres Leches Cake in Santa Fe--or anywhere else! Our server is excellent and a regular since the opening. Impeccable and friendly service! (usually at "our" favorite Table 12 with Carmen Lee sp?) We love this place in the winter as we seek comfort foods and ambiance, and in spring and summer as we enjoy sitting outside in the stone-fountain-plant and grasses garden. We also enjoy that it is off the downtown path and easy to park and relax with no crowds or lines. It is the best place! Thank you for several years now of service and enjoyment!

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

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
