Me and four other women meet and eat once a month and we had the perfect spot on the patio next to the heater. I think we were there for four hours talking, drinking and eating. Very nice area, not crowded at all and the food was great.
Enjoyed our first visit. Waiter was great. We will go back. Monday night 1/2 price wine was a plus!
Nice upscale ambience with indoor and outdoor seating. Food was mostly fantastic. The braised short ribs with spaghetti squash Alfredo was tender and extremely flavorful and exactly what I wanted. My dining partners enjoyed the shrimp and grits, pork chop special, Joyce Farms Chicken, and the Midtowne burger. Side dishes/apps were less perfect. The oyster and calamari small plates (two appetizers) were under seasoned and needed salt, and the asparagus side order was a bit stringy and tough (but well seasoned with good flavor).
Easter Brunch was great!
Always one of our go to favorites! The food is excellent and the service is almost always great.
This was our first visit to Midtown Grille. The atmosphere was very nice and the food was creative and delicious. I would recommend Midtown Grille for a causal dinner or special occasion.
We cannot sat enough good things, this is a foodies gem.
We have eaten all over the globe. Sure there are better places, but they are in NYC,Soho, San Fran, for brunch....not in NC.
We have family in town and wanted to go somewhere for brunch where we could make reservations. I found Midtown Grille and the menu looked great. It did not disappoint at all! We all enjoyed our meals and will definitely be back! The only negative is that we were seated right near the door and it was a bit chilly as people would come in.
Good food good service, good value!
We went for my sisters birthday. Aaron took care of us, as he has done once before, and he really is a phenomenal server. I enjoy going there because of him. Our food was good. I had the key lime cheesecake which wasn’t my favorite, but my sister had the chocolate cake and it was great. The calamari is a must try.
All around great place dinner was wonderful great vibe at the bar can’t wait to return...
The lobster roll was wonderful. The waiter was very attentive. The restaurant was SO NOISY we could barely carry on a conversation.
As a business owner of a marketing and PR firm here in Wake county i am an advocate for local businesses and pride myself on shopping and dining local. However after two visits to this establishment i can confirm that the hospitality seemed cold with very little customer engagement (at least with me). It's unfortunate that my experience tonight was no differrent during my first visit.
Not sure if me choosing another place to dine is the desired goal, however i think i will explore other local dining options.
The food was pricey and just ok.
This place has slipped badly. The food is still quite good but the noise level and service levels remind you of being in a TG Fridays. Prices however have stayed high. Again food is good but when you can hardly hear your table guest sitting right beside you and the server keeps interrupting your conversation you quickly realize its time to find a better spot to spend those discretionary dining dollars.
My party of 4 was seated immediately and the servers made my birthday girl and her guest feel welcome and important. The food was outstanding and so was the selection of options provided. No substitution was denied and everyone was so satisfied with dinner my daughter actually turned down a free birthday dessert. I would definitely recommended this restaurant for any occasion.
Great miso mushroom soup.
It make me sad to write a bad review, however, our experience was awful. I ordered a crabcake sandwich. The crab meat was spoiled. I couldn't eat it. The service was minimal and sparse to say the least. Very inefficient wait staff. They did remove the cost of the sandwich from my bill, but the bad taste was left in my mouth!
Great food, noisy child nearby
Very disappointed that there was no mention of my boss’s 94th birthday when I advised of the special occasion.
Waitress was horrible
Fire alarm was disturbing
Dinner was excellent as is always is! Service by Aaron was superb. Love the place!
Would not go back unless other options available in area. Sat in bar area. I was only person there for lunch at 12:30. Place is known for wood fired chicken; however waiter recommended homemade pastrami. Mixed green salad was good. Pastrami was ok; over cooked and pale (compared to NY pastrami). Also 1/2 of sandwich was fatty. Beer was good 👌🏻
Great steak had the rib eye special great awesome service we will be back!
The food was prepared well, and a decent value for what was received. Our server was a smoker, and continually smelled like cigarette smoke each time he came to the table. We were seated in the back area of the dining room, which was possibly near the back door that employees used to go out for a "smoke break". The dining room filled with the smell of cigarette smoke near the end of dinner, and actually made us leave to finish our conversations. If I dine again there, I will certainly request a different server.
We went to celebrate our son's birthday, and this was a great choice. The food was fabulous, and the wine/drink list was even better, which is saying a lot. Our server, Aaron, was a wealth of knowledge, especially in his ability to understand and pair the right wine with the right food. His wine recommendation actually made me wish that the wine was my meal because I didn't want to interrupt it by eating, and I am a foodie! The only down side was that the decor was a bit 'typical', but they could serve their menu in a tent and I'd line up to eat it.
Food was ok not great. Tried to be complicated and clever but didn’t live up to it.
Staff put us at a table off to the side for a good atmosphere to talk business. Waiter was engaging, and knew the menu well. The food was prepped well and we would definitely dine here again
White table cloths
But odd music
Maybe Sinatra instead ? And I’m not even old
Dinner was fantastic. Ribeye was cooked perfectly. Lobster salad was excellent. Thai bisque soup was very tasty. We will definitely come back for more.
Just a neat neighborhood gem. Always great food and service.
Food and service was excellent! Unfortunately there was an exceptionally noisy group at a nearby table that stole perfection from our quiet date night. We'll try it again.
We had a better meal before (second time this year). The Mexican chocolate cake is devine.
I have had great lunches at Midtown. This was our first Sunday Brunch. I thought the food was no better than any chain breakfast place. Expected more.
Such a lovely venue and have had some good meals here but more often than not, something is wrong with the experience which is off putting enough that I take several months before another attempt. Sometimes it's service - which was okay at this visit. Sometimes it's food - which was main issue this time. Not sure if I'll make the effort to come here again. Really disappointing as others in their class are so much more consistently enjoyable. Guess that's why they always have Open Tables...
Great dinner!! The service was perfect too. The space was a bit tight for the 8 of us - but overall great experience!!
Great food, as always. Atmosphere was wonderful - it’s a great place for Sunday brunch - one of our go-tos. Service was poor - I had to ask for refills multiple times, waitress never checked on us and we had to ask others on the wait staff to get our drinks refilled. She was also very slow. Took us 20+ minutes to get our check from the time we finished eating.
They called after we left to say they also over charged our meal by $400. They corrected it but it takes 5-business days to process. That’s a big mistake.
We love midtown but the service and details have been disappointing the past few times.
