Service was exceptionally slow. Drinks took nearly 30 minutes, and the food was so bad we couldn’t eat it. We have been to Midtown numerous times over the years and always had a good experience but this visit was a fail on all counts. Slow service, bad food, water dripping from the ceiling…not an enjoyable dining experience.

This is a hidden gem in Nashville. We were there for one night and wanted something upscale and not a chain. Found Midtown Cafe on Trip Advisor and it did not disappoint. Dale was a super waiter - friendly and knowledgeable and just the right amount of attention. The food was absolutely second to none! We will definitely be back when in Nashville again!

Had leisurely brunch one day and fast breakfast the next. For both, the service was fast, precise, and friendly; the food was great; bar was nice. All in all, a destination for me from now on whenever I’m in Nashville.

Since the ‘80’s, always a favorite choice for any occasion. Randy has brought a nice selection of wines to the menu to meet any needs. Cozy and intimate setting, great little bar for drinks before dinner or to grab a quick bite. Excellent and efficient service.

Consistently the best of the best. Lemon artichoke soup and veal piccata have been dinner favorites for years. Now with brunch, the benedict is superb.

We enjoyed our dinner very much. I had the mountain trout, very generous portion. Sauce was tasty. My husband had the lamb chops that were a special. Again, a generous portion. The sides were wonderful. Topped it off with chocolate molten lava cake with ice cream. Perfect!
