We were going out to dinner before a play at TPAC. Nobody does dinner and a show better than Midtown. We both felt like we were in a Nashville restaurant…food and service were top notch, and timely.

The food and service were good and the price was fair given the experience. I really like the character of the place. Would have like to have draft beer as an option.

This was by far one of the best dining experiences we have ever had! The food was delicious but even better was the ambiance and the attention of our server, Herman! We will surely return to Midtown when we’re back in Nashville. Thank you, Herman, for a most memorable evening!!!

Welcomed and seated immediately, quickly greeted by our ace server, Doug. Gave us ample time to review the menus, answered questions knowledgeably, and was genuinely caring and kind. One of the group has celiac disease, and Doug was well informed and able to meet our needs (although the menu is clearly marked). Doug helped us make selections for drinks (they have an excellent bar program) as well as choosing between entrées. Service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The meals were superb. All in all, an excellent experience, we WILL return.

Excellent brunch and lunch menu. All 3 ordered something different and we were all very pleased with our meals. Very intimate dining only adds to the experience. Intend to return when we are back in town to try other items that looked yummy. Would highly recommend.

We came for brunch on Sunday and it did not disappoint. It is so lovely they have valet parking that is on site (free) so you don’t have to worry about where to park. Our reservation was at 10 and we got seated about 10 minutes after that, which was great. Our server was great and so was the food. It is slightly loud since it is a smaller restaurant but it was still easy to talk to those at the table.

We selected this restaurant based on other reviews and it did not disappoint. The food was amazing and the service was outstanding. Our waiter, Herman (I believe was his name) was attentive and friendly and assisted us in deciding on menu choices as everything sounded amazing. The restaurant is unremarkable from the outside, but oh my goodness, the food was perfectly prepared and unique, and even the coffee after dinner was amazing. The creme brulee was out of this world. I definitely recommend this restaurant!

Black grouper??? I ordered this as my entree. The fish was mushy, paper thin and was the consistency of a catfish filet. I asked the waiter if it was actually grouper and was told it was it was a thin cut. I've never heard of a horizontal thin cut of grouper. if so, the grouper filet was undersized and should not have been available for sale. The Julia Childs recipe gimmick won't last long for this establishment.

While the service was top notch, and the ambiance was quiet, the food was just meh. For the price point, I didn't want to find three shells in my crab cakes and have hummus that was the consistency of play-doh.

First trip to Nashville, hoping for a great brunch. Hate to review unfavorably but the food was, pure and simple, a big disappointment. Combine that with the very dirty restaurant, especially the bathroom, soo dirty! decided to let others know, hence the review.
