    We love MIDA! The flavors, the ambience and the service are always on point. It has the right balance between a homey and elevated experience. If you want a guaranteed good night out, don’t hesitate and book a reservation here. Does not disappoint.

    We attended for Valentine’s Day and they were not prepared to turn over the tables for all their reservations. We waited 40 minutes for our reservation along with 15 other people. There was also no place to stand while we waited and we were constantly being bumped into by wait staff. I was looking forward to dinner there but the experience was really poor. We did the wine pairing and had to remind our waiting to bring it out to us each time.

    Mida has rapidly become our favorite restaurant. The intimate seating and outstanding service are secondary only to the amazing food. Mangia Monday is the best value in the city.

    Very loud table to our right, no one's fault. 3 drunk college girls with a set of parents. One girl was so drunk and loud it was hard for my husband and I to even talk. Again, uncontrollable, just an unfortunate situation.

    A great time as always! However, even though we had a reservation, the table wasn’t ready for about 15-20 minutes after our reservation time. Service was a tad slow as well, it took a while to get drinks and order food.

    My friend and I shared the olives before dinner. We have each eaten olives all over the world and love them and agreed that these were far and away the best either of us have ever eaten. The arancini as also fabulous as were our entrees. I had the gnocchi cacio e pepe which should be called "pillow cacio e pepe" because the pasta is so light. Our server, Justin, was a delight and the whole experience was truly flawless which is a lot to say but true!

    Food was good. We ordered the duck wings (which were nice, especially if you like a sweet glaze), lasagna (best of what we ordered), gnocchi (the dumplings were slightly hard and the dish as a whole was okay) Service was nice and atmosphere was also cool.

    What an excellent meal, this experience reminded me why as a longtime South Ender, MIDA remains at the top of my list. Food was outstanding, especially the carrot dish and the pasta with shrimp stood out. As did the citrus cake and pistachio ice cream. All dishes were characterized by very complex and rewarding flavors. It was my dinner guest’s birthday and we were treated so exceptionally well. Our server Dan and the rest of the staff made us feel welcome. I enjoyed it so much I’ll back in a few days again!

    Each dish is exquisite, from the caesar salad with fried bread croutons to the floating cloud of purest raspberry gelato. Tonight I had the bar social drink, first time ever: bourbon, amaro, grenadine & something else that made it smooth and delicious. Guest from San Francisco guessed bill to be much higher than it was. Such a lovely dinner. ,

    The food was very good. Tiramisu was plated differently but just didn’t give me the tiramisu vibe. Loved the bucatini, Caesar, focaccia and especially the expresso martini. Best of all are the people that work there. Very nice, helpful and looked like they enjoyed being there. That really made the evening! I’ve been to Mida multiple times and always enjoy.
