    Everything was fantastic, besides the waitress being a little late with our final ticket. But we were told place is closing down 9/18/12 🥲 The food was very delicious

    Omelet and BLT were ok. There was a large party seating as we got there and we asked to not be sat near them. So instead they crammed us behind a room divider next to the front door. So every time a server went outside to the front patio our whole table shook from the door slamming. Older male server (not ours) was practically yelling as he trained someone new at the computer behind us. We couldnt even hear each other talk when he was nearby. Food was fine but nothing to write home about. Will not be returning.

    We sat at the bar and had brunch. Nick, the bartender, was friendly and his service was excellent. We will highly recommend to others coming here. The food was delicious, I had the quiche of the day, and my husband had the short ribs. It was so good! Nick recommended the Mimosa special with three different juices. We will definitely be back.

    My only suggestion is that when a guest organizes a take out box for leftovers, and carelessly leaves it behind on the table, don't throw it away for at least 20 minutes. Because, often the guest will see he/she forgot and rush back to the restaurant to retrieve his take home box. Give us a 20 minute grace!!!!

    Off night for Midtown Grille. Waited over 30 minutes for cocktails. Then as it was birthday celebration brought a special bottle of wine, for the corking fee I opened, decanted and served myself. Brussel sprouts appetizer was excellent best dish of the night. Hummus appetizer was fine however not enough pita pieces for the quantity of hummus and when requested more pita was charged. Never brought bread out for meal. Forgot one appetizer the Mac and cheese. Salmon over cooked but the risotto was good, short ribs were blah, tortellini mushy, salad looked good. Never asked if dishes were ok. The crème brûlée was pretty good, light on the sugar topping. We’ve eaten here before and definitely had better so hoping this was an off night. 5 people $300 so no plans to go back based on this disappointing experience.
