Midtown Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Every person who came to our table wished us Happy Anniversary. Our table had confetti and streamers on it to commentate our special occasion. The wait staff couldn’t have been nicer. Our dinners were superb. My center-cut pork chop was delicious with a wonderful glaze. My wife’s salmon was cooked to perfection. She said the Caesar dressing on her salad was very good. I doubt you would ever get a bad meal there. However, be aware this is a very pricey restaurant with dinner for two, not including drinks or a bottle of wine, to start around $100. Midtown Bistro is perfect to celebrate a birthday or anniversary.
The food at Midtown is very good. Service this time was slow and we had to ask for things already promised. However, wait staff were pleasant and helpful when we asked. We'd go there again, but keep telling them to improve service to match the food. Parking is sometimes a challenge, but doable.
In summer outside the Bistro is the best brunch Santa Fe has to offer. But unfortunately inside in winter, it seems the staff is cut and the cooks are different. This is the second winter season where we have experienced under-staffing, food not done properly, not being seated where we requested in our reservation and that request having been lost. Feels like they cut back in every way during the non-tourist season which is a shame because their food can be superb.
I took my dad to Midtown Bistro for his (belated) birthday and it was really such a wonderful experience. The staff made it super special by decorating a table for us with birthday confetti, a table in a quiet area where we could talk well, excellent service with lovely staff, amazing tasting food that was cooked perfectly, and even a candle on his dessert!! My dad was glowing the whole night and felt like a king. Thank you!
One of my favorite restaurant.
Great service , personable, warm and friendly management and staff.
Good food, beautifully presented.
Pleasant ambiance with soothing live guitar on weekends.
Gorgeous terrace with fountains during warm months.
It feels as if we are among family whenever we go there!
I have celiac and was visiting Santa Fe and wanted to meet a friend who lives there for lunch. I had been to Midtown once before in June and sat outside on their fabulous patio. I had remembered the interior as sort of sterile so I dismisssed it. But it had good reviews for being able to deal with celiac and my friend said that she actually liked the interior. I decided I’d rather feel comfortable that I could eat and not be sick than have the best atmosphere. And actually I liked the atmosphere and best of all it was not too crowded—thus we could hear each other (I don’t know what the craze of loud restaurants is these day..., its rare to be able to find a restaurant where you can hear each other). It was mid week in November so I’m guessing that is partly why. The walls are stark white and I would not call it warm and cozy or quaint. That is why I said it would be a good place for business meals. Its not as sterile as I had remembered but the interior does not have the charm their patio has. The menu is varied. The wait staff was not the friendliest but did the job. He acted sort of like we were a bother to him it was not that he was trying to be unintrusive or maybe that was his objective but it came off as indifferent. The creme brûlée was excellent!! They had GF fried calamari (rice flour dedicated GF fryer) and I so rarely can get it I got it, but I didn’t not find it was all that great. It wasn’t greasy, just sort of bland. I wished I had gone for the salad niscoise or the Cobb salad.
Midtown Bistro has always had promise and occasionally the food is good enough to make up for the poor (at best) service. This time the food was not very good for any of the four of us. The Calamari was very tough and overcooked. The rib eye was unevenly cut so unevenly cooked. The potatoes were out of a box or tasted that way and the Caesar salad was not even average although the Romaine was fresh. The service is friendly but really not geared for hospitality. I guess they are going for something but I am not sure what it could be.....Sad.....
Worthy of keeping on my all-time favorites list whether for lunch or dinner. Both the food and the service are remarkably divine. I ordered the lamb chops and my date ordered the halibut. We both coveted our choices so much that sharing even a bite was difficult.
We had a romantic dinner at Midtown Bistro on a Friday night. We each had a drink at the bar during happy hour for only $5 a piece for a glass of red wine and a yummy house margarita. Luis, the host, graciously seated us at a private/like table for two. Ramon Bermudez was playing live guitar music in the dining room. We enjoyed our meal prepared by chef Angel Estrada. Thank you!
We were there the night power went out. The restaurant coped well!!! The manager found enough candles to go to each table, making it romantic. The kitchen coped admirably too! My husband raved about his pork chop and I had the shrimp pasta special which was hot and delicious!!! Mid-Town is our favorite restaurant in Santa Fe!!! We come back time and again, the food is excellent, the price is right and the wait staff is attentive!!! We highly recommend Mid-Town Bistro for any occasion, lunch or dinner.
This is a lovely gem just outside the busy Santa Fe downtown area, without the hassles of parking. There is an ample (free) parking lot adjacent to the restaurant, and once inside, you are enveloped in the ambience of the elegant and stylish rooms, with a lovely outside patio to be enjoyed in the mountain air. The staff was above and beyond helpful and polite, and the food was delightful and comparable to the best restaurants. The only criticism would be the lack of an ice bucket for the bottle of white wine, but otherwise the visit and meal were impeccable.
Sunday Brunch is one of the best in Santa Fe. Eggs Benedict are to die for. Make reservations, and go for an early time (10-10:30). It. Was very quiet and peaceful. We sat outside and could hear the fountains bubbling. By noon it was packed and loud but were finished.
Great guitar player on patio but my suggestion would be just picking and strumming. No Vocals Vocals tended to get louder than our conversation at times. We just like nice back round music.
