Came here for my husband’s birthday with his group of friends. The outdoor seating was very spacious and made us feel really comfortable. The waiter was nice and recommended some great dishes. Food was great. Would definitely come back again.

For a pandemic dining experience MTM did a very nice job. The food was great & the service was attentive. Of course we'd rather have dined inside and there were little things that were a little off but overall very good.
Will definitely go back.

Will preface that this is a couple of weeks after COVID outdoor dining was allowed. Came here for my wedding anniversary. Got the bacon appetizer which was uneven in thickness causing some parts to be burnt, had the skin which was inedibly tough, and not anything special flavorwise. Got the caprisi salad, which had mealy mozzarella, ok tomatoes, and dressing to pour on yourself. Ordered the ribeyes medium rare, came medium well, steak was a little salty, and asked the waiter about the doneness but he told me to check the middle which i showed wasn't med rare either. Creamed spinach was really good, mac and cheese with mushroom so-so. Definitely not worth the prices. This is an imitator compared to Christos which is also in the neighborhood.

We have been coming to MtM for years, but this was our first time back after COVID19. Adnan and his team did a wonderful job adapting to the "new normal" with outdoor seating, servers with masks, etc. The food, as always, was delicious and the service impeccable. Why go to the more trendy tourist attraction steakhouses, when you can enjoy the same quality food in a more intimate setting, served by people who will treat you like family?

Despite my 10pm reservation, I had to wait standing by the doorway for about half an hour. By the time I was at the table, my feet was done standing in my heels.

Although they were backed up for the holiday, they were still very accommodating and it helped with the time to fly by before we were actually seated. Their food and service was impeccable. Def love dinning here. Staff is very kind and friendly.

I was recommended by a friend to come here so we came here for Valentine’s Day but unfortunately we weren’t happy with the food. The grilled octopus tasted like charcoal and the mushroom Mac and cheese was dry and had very little cheese. We sent it back. We ordered the fillet mignon and the rib eye. They looked delicious but was overly charred and that too tasted like charcoal. The only decent thing we had was the wine and the creamed spinach. The wait staff was friendly and professional and offered to bring us something else to eat but we declined.
