The food is very very good. No complaints. Service was friendly and attentive. The dining area is very pleasant and surprisingly quiet to moderate in noise level, considering the place has hard floors and a high ceiling, so you can actually have a conversation with others at your table. The tables are not too close together which is another plus. I’d definitely go there again.

I've been to Midtown Bistro many times for lunch and dinner, and really prefer lunch there over dinner. That said, our server, Janet was excellent, patient and a good resource for evaluating some wine options. The food was good, not excellent, but then again, I am always happier with lunch there. Especially beautiful for lunch OR dinner, when the patio area is open.

It was my wife's birthday, and she chose to lunch at Midtown which we both like. We drove up from Albuquerque.
Unfortunately our wait person was disinterested. We felt unwelcomed and certainly in no way special on this special day. When I made the reservations, I noted it was to be a birthday lunch.
Oh well.
We will come again, but if Juan Z greets us or is to be our server, we will either leave or request another server.
Julio is always pleasant and engaging and an asset to your establishment.

We Asked for certain table and received. Birthday candles we brought also welcomed. Marcos, who served water and coffee, but was not our server was outstanding. We watched as he helped a struggling fellow disabled patron with kindness and respect. He was the MOST attentive to us and others in the room and we were there a while. Food great but service more important to us! Thank you Marcos!

We are natives of Santa Fe and were surprised that we hadn't been to Midtown Bistro. It is a beautiful restaurant with delicious food, great atmosphere and wonderful staff. So happy to have discovered this restaurant. We will definitely be returning. Can't wait to sit out in the patio area!

The Easter Brunch was exceptional. Stuffed French toast was delicious. Crab cakes were fabulous. The staff was a little overwhelmed by the Easter crowd, therefore service timeliness and follow-up was a little challenging. However, they were packed and the food was awesome!

Mid-Town Bistro serves a good brunch, but the attentive waitstaff and the ambiance really make the place. It's the kind of place I go when I want to talk with a friend or colleague over a decent meal, at a pleasant, quiet place with nice white tablecloths.

WE visit Mid town often.. usually taking advantage of their good Happy Hour drink and appetizer specials.. it's a good deal.. this occasion was a brunch meal for 6 friends... larger groups are hard to accommodate in the main dining room.. i usually suggest the bar area which is under-utilized.. but we were seated comfortably enough.. I ordered the Crab cake eggs benedict... and was disappointed due to the flavour of the crab cakes was a little fishy.. which is just not acceptable.. every ones other meals were liked.. they have Gluten Free meals and appetizers which is good for our tastes and for our diets.. Cost of 6 was about $140-$150 not outrageous but not cheap either for bunch without acholoic drinks.

Everything at Midtown Bistro has always been excellent except on this occasion when the sea bass was sadly overcooked and dry. The calamari appetizer was outstanding.

We had a wonderful evening at Midtown Bistro. The food was excellent. The pasta is homemade, the chicken and shrimp was perfect. The soup was fantastic. They knew we were celebrating a birthday and decorated the table in a tasteful was. Service was very good, our waitress was very attentive. We will come again when we visit Santa Fe.

Everything from start to finish was excellent: appetizers, entrees, and desserts. We had been to Midtown Bistro for lunch months ago and decided to return for dinner during Restaurant Week.

We will return for dinner.

BTW My wife is still raving over how light her chocolate layer cake and frosting were....

I am a frequent customer and love the restaurant, inside, outside and the new addition. We were there for Restaurant Week with a friend. Both my husband and our guest loved their dinners. I had only one complaint - my Caesar salad was perfect and is one of my favorites. However, I ordered the veal and was disappointed . The veal either did not have enough sauce or was just too bland. The potatoes were good but I detected some cilantro in my vegetables which I do not like and would have told the waitress so or ordered another entre if I had known it would be put in the dinner. Coffee and dessert were great as usual.

We went for Valentine’s Day dinner. My boyfriend had the surf and turf which was actually good but mine was horrible! I ordered the Sea Bass with Israeli couscous for $38. The fish was over cooked and burnt the couscous was flavorless sitting in an unflavored tomato broth. It was so underwhelming that I sent it back. The other option was salmon, the waitress who was very nice asked how I wanted it cooked. I asked for medium. The salmon came, burnt and well done with quinoa and spinach. I could have made this exact same thing at home for $8 and cooked it better myself. It was such a let down. I won’t be going back. The only thing that saves this place is the wonderful waitress who comped our drinks and gave us chocolate covered strawberries on the house.

Have gone there for everything from casual lunches with friends to special occasions with special people in my life and it never fails to deliver great ambiance, great food, excellent service and just an all around wonderful and enjoyable experience. I recommend it all the time to people looking for an upscale, but casual, reasonably priced dining experience.

Terrible! We went to the restaurant on time for a special occasion dinner and were told when we stepped inside they would not honor our open table reservation that we made on line the day before. They said they decided to close the kitchen and restaurant early that night. We asked why never called us ahead and told us not to come and they had no answer. We called the restaurant about this situation the following day and spoke to the manager asking the owner to call us back and he did not. They obviously don't care about their future business. I wouldn't go there again as they don't honor their reservations and don't care about their patrons!
