We went for anniversary. My wife had the scallops and I had the salmon. Both were very good. The salmon was cooked perfectly. The waiter was attentive but not overbearing.
We have have been going here for over twenty years and the food and service are always top notch.

Great service and food. I do not like the fact that OpenTable makes me type at least 50 characters in order to post a review. Maybe I will not do a review again.

We appreciated having a nice outdoor dining experience. It is so important to offer the best chance that we have to be together as safely as possible, enjoying good food, wine, and each other. As always, the recent experience was excellent. Our server, Jennifer, was very professionally and appropriately engaging. We were exciting to see the heating lamps indicating that they are preparing to provide outdoor dining as the weather turns a bit cooler. The food was great. Bring back the sea bass with risotto offering. Highly recommend that crème brulee cheese cake too. They also allowed us to bring our own special bottle of wine and pay corking fee.

Very good ... all 4 meals were enjoyed. I asked for Ketchup when my mean was brought to me..., was told it would be brought to me... waitress-(lady) came by 3-4 minutes later and said... "I did not forget your ketchup"... but as she walked by for the 6th time 10 minutes later... I never got my ketchup! It is the" little things" that make service important. When you are understaffed, it reflects in your service. It makes dining out less enjoyable needing condiments and not being able to access them.

Hi, We are so glad to hear all four meals were enjoyed. We are so sorry to hear you never got your ketchup! We appreciate your feedback and will share it with the team. We hope you will give us another shot in the future!

I made a reservation through open table and indicated that we are celebrating my friend's birthday. The waiter didn't offer anything for her. I ended up asking someone in the wait staff and was told they birthday person gets a free dessert. Was disappointed with our waiter about that but added more on tip for giving us a free dessert.

We had an excellent experience at the MidTown Grille. We had been there a number of times before COVID-19, but this was our first time back. When we made our reservation, we requested outside dining because we are in the "vulnerable" group. We were given an outside table with incredible "social distancing". The food was delicious. I had shrimp and grits and my husband had the eggs benedict.

Three of us ate outside on the patio. One had the salmon and coconut rice; another the warm chicken salad; and the last the chicken dinner. I especially liked the roasted carrots that came with the salmon. Everyone would have enjoyed having bread with their meal, but we were told it wasn’t available due to Covid (uncertain of the connection). Bennett did a good job of serving our table.

Sat outside on a nice cool afternoon. Met a friend for lunch. The service was attentive. The salad was dry with over cooked salmon. Salad and a $10 glass of wine equated to a $33 dollar lunch. For that price it was disappointing.
