I have eaten at Midtown Bistro frequently since it opened. It is a consistently satisfying experience. The food is always excellent, the service is friendly and efficient, the prices (including the wine list) are fair. It’s a little off the beaten track, so the experience is leisurely, relaxed, and comfortable. I always leave happy.

We ate on the beautiful patio, had excellent service, and ate the most delicious calamari as an appetizer and fresh halibut as an entree. A wonderful experience. We will definitely return.

The bistro was super fancy looking for reasonable prices! We as poor college kids were looking for an experience that wouldn’t completely break the bank, and the bistro delivered.

We were visiting from Fort Worth Texas and ran across the ad for this restaurant. We were absolutely delighted in the ambiance, service and Devine food while celebrating my husband’s birthday! Would recommend this to everyone. A hidden gem outside of the SantaFe square.

The food was great and the service was good. My only issue was how distant/disconcerned they seemed with customers coming into the door. I waited about 10minutes at the front of the restaurant and even poked around to grab people’s attention to confirm my reservation and be seated.
It was a very cold welcome for my first time, they’re lucky the food was good.

The food, service and atmosphere are all excellent. I dropped a star only because menu on the app is no longer valid: in the restaurant, the prices were 30% higher.

The problem with writing a great review about one of your favorite restaurants, is that it makes it difficult to get in after the review is posted. Nevertheless, MidTown Bistro deserves a great review. Maybe we have longed for a great night out, great meal with a great wine recommendation due to Covid, but I will say MidTown Bistro always has sent us home satisfied and happy and last night was no exception. I highly recommend this fine restaurant. AND thank you MidTown for letting us use OpenTable which is also a great convenience for locals too.

Celebrated a birthday with a friend, really good service, meals are definitely on the high end, portions were okay for a lunch menu. The noise level got pretty high so we left to get dessert elsewhere. I ordered the wild mushroom potato bisque and although it was tasty it was too rich for my gut and not quite hot enough. The steak in the steak salad was really nice but the greens were quite bitter. I won’t hurry back.

I know times have been difficult for restaurants and I am sympathetic. Our table was in earshot of air conditioning compressors. The waiter accidentally poured the jus from the lamb chops all over my dress. He apologized nicely but the restaurant offered no dessert, glass of wine.

Food was outstanding. Shared a salad and the halibut. Service was poor. Waiter brought wrong drink. Waited 12 minutes for him to pickup charge card to pay. Finally tracked him down. Maybe it was too early for them to reopen because they obviously were short staffed. Service was frustratingly slow. Would recommend but only for the food.

The ambience of this place is great. Inside is a more calm, quiet feel. It's open with lots of natural light.
Outside is an oasis. You are transported beneath the trees surrounded by flowers and fountains. It's more lively outside. I feel the food was pretty good with a couple great items (the bisque, the tacitos and their tomatillo salsa were excellent) they have a full bar which is always a plus! The staff were kind and attentive.

Usually everything is great. However we had a surly indifferent waiter (not the usual experience here). He would vanish for long periods of time. We had to go in search of our check and ultimately went to the station and took care of it there. Food and presentation as always was great

We were eating there for our Mother’s Day celebration and it was nice to have the person performing outside. The food was excellent as always and aside from slightly slower service probably caused only by the busy holiday crowd it was excellent.
