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!

Mid Town is a sleeper! It does not appear to have much appeal from the outside, but as the old adage says...don't judge from appearance! The food, service and experience were worth the $$. I would highly recommend the meatloaf. Better than Mom's! If you are able to eat early (i.e. 6-7 pm) I would recommend it, the place fills up around 7. Or use OpenTable like we did!

Haven’t been to Midtown in a while and thought we’d give it a try again. It’s just as I remembered, very good. I had the veal Oscar and it was terrific. The entire evening went very well.

When we arrived we were seated immediately and did not have to wait the extra 15 minutes when our reservation was. Food came out quick and server was very knowledgeable about the menu; especially the dessert menu. Might I add the coconut cake was amazing.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant and can't wait to return to try out their Brunch!!

They were so accommodating. We forgot our time change to CST and arrived an hour early and they found a way to seat us right away. Service was good. Food was delicious. Lots of great options. Glad we made a reservation. There was already a line at 9 on a Sunday.
