Unfortunately, our experience was ruined by two incredibly selfish chain smokers. We were seated outside on the patio, which is often great. Two regular patrons made it impossible to enjoy by constantly lighting up.

It was our anniversary. Had a reservation noting it was a special occasion. We were seated between 2 loud tables. Slow service. Ordered a bottle of wine (white), it was sat on table without chiller to keep cold. Food was good but overall disappointed

We had 3 apps instead of a full meal and there was plenti for 2 people. We had the outstanding fig flat bread, the wonderful oysters and the average mac n cheese, average only because mac n cheese isn't my favorite food anyway. Overall great food and service, we would return.

We decided to give Midtown Grill a 2nd chance from the last service experience I truly felt that any fast food restaurant's chicken would have tasted better. The salmon was overly sweet we did not see any of the other staff that had worked there the last couple of years! Had to ask others for salt/pepper/water/bread. It's such a shame as this restaurant's atmosphere is great... and it a perfect location in North Hills. Upon leaving the restaurant we heard other guest discussing how terrible the service was at the restaurant. This dinner experience was such a huge disappointment! We went from regular customers over the last 3 years to not ever wanting to eat here again.

This is the second time in two weeks I’ve met a friend to enjoy a leisurely meal: one at lunch and one for dinner. I chose Midtown and my guests loved my choice. Not only is the food delicious, but it has a wonderful “feel”. You can pretty much hear conversation and service very attentive. Looking forward to another visit!
