Horrible service! The guy did not even bother to say hello/good morning upon arrival. He also tried to offend me by giving me zero vegetarian options and as I wanted eggs he said out loud that eggs are not vegetarian either. Well if you are vegetarian you normally do eat dairy products unless you are VEGAN. Make sure the manager gets informed. I ran out of energy when i had to deal with this fellow. He should not be working in the restaurant business, a complete disaster and lack of service mindness. I felt so mistreated without any reason at all. Do not know if I will come back and if I do i will for sure ask for a better service.

Will never go here again.... sent food back 3 times... manager never came to table even after Amber our waiter asked him to.... I will never go here again and will not recommend it to noone. We were from out of town so disappointed!!!!!! Amber was a good waiter but the kitchen and Manger was very unprofessional... and Manger passed by our table more than once and not once stopped by.

Hello shondap. We have been in business a long time and as evident by our ratings, we do a very good job. We are very sorry for your experience. However, you did not like the Spinach dip nor the mac and cheese apps. . You ordered three shrimp and grits, ALL ALTERED and the Salmon entree. You were unhappy with all. A flatbread with shrimp was also ordered. We discounted $92 off the check, the three dishes you chose to alter, the Salmon and the apps.

Good experience at Midtown
Food options were good, the special that evening, Corvina, was excellent and well presented
The short ribs were outstanding fall apart and very flavourful
Good choice of wines by the glass
Friendly and attentive but not overbearing service made for a great evening experience

Midtown Grille is one of our go to restaurants. However during the last 3-4 visits, I’ve had issues with my steak. I prefer medium and the steak is generally medium well or well. On one occasion I had a large group dinner at MG and everyone ordered the steak. Out of 6 orders, only 1 was correct. I doubt that we will frequent the restaurant anymore. There’s been too many inconsistencies. However I love the service and the food is great. I just can’t get the steak cooked at the right temperature.

Thank you for your support, and sorry for your steak issues. Our espresso rubbed Ribeye is one of our best sellers and cut daily in house. We call medium "light pink" and depending on the cut almost "gray brown". We temp each steak to 135 for medium. On your next visit let us know and lets shoot for a lower temperature. You have many choices for dining and we want you to leave completely satisfied.

My husband and I always enjoy dining at Midtown Grill. We started coming
this Summer when we could sit out front and then enjoying going inside
once the weather got cool. The food is always delicious and the service great.
We especially enjoy dining on Tuesday nights when they offer half price glass
of wine.

We were charged 19% gratuity with a party of 2. That usually goes for parties of 6 or more. totally unexceptable.

Midtown Grille
Responded on February 16, 2021

Hello and thank you for your patronage. We charge a 20% gratuity on special occasion dates and on holidays such as NYE / Mothers day. You are correct, we charge gratuity to all parties of 6 or more all the time. These guidelines were posted on our website right next to the Valentines weekend menus. The 6 or more gratuity is always specified on our website and menus. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

Enjoyed a nice peaceful evening at Midtown Grille. We ordered the fried calamari & it was the best we’ve had! With that being so good we were very excited about the main course which did not disappoint! We were served by Bennett who was excellent. Never realized this place was here but we will definitely be back.

Midtown Grille never disappoints whether I have the seafood entrée of the day or a burger - always perfection. The short ribs are also phenomenal. Dare I mention the ribeye cooked and cut to perfection? I have appreciated their heated outdoor space during the pandemic, but I look forward to eating inside which I have not yet experienced. Midtown Grille has been out go to spot and we love it. I also like that you can bring your own bottle of wine and pay corking fee. Support them - the food is divine.

We’ve been here twice for brunch in the last two weeks.. it’s DELICIOUS! I love the pancakes and bacon. My mom didn’t have good luck with her fried eggs though they came out too runny both times (she wanted them over hard). Our server was decent this time but the guy we had the first time was AMAZING. Overall 9/10

We just bought a house in Durham and haven’t officially moved there yet from TN but we’re in town getting some things done. As I used to live in Cary and frequent midtown grill, and he had never been there, I thought it would be a great place to go. He loved it! And we are both vegetarians and had veggie options on menu so we found great food! Service was excellent too. We will be back.

It was a group of 5 and every single order came out wrong or missing food and had to be remade. The waitress Amber was amazing and so sweet. You could tell she was embarrassed they screwed up this bad.

Anonymous, Denise Iheanachor, reservation It was 58 outside and 72 in the restaurant. Group complained of being cold and we moved your group. The young lady delivering the food missed the correct seats and all the food was delivered to the wrong person. We recooked all complete with all of the requested substitutions on each plate. All of the food was then eaten and enjoyed. Discounts were given and your group was taking pictures after lunch in our private room. Your group all left happy.
