Midtown is always spot on, including breakfast. Best described as simple, perfectly prepared and tasty. Don’t overlook this cafe in the morning too. Mmm. Ideal for business with the ability to talk without screaming.

Food was unimpressive. They had an awesome sounding menu but the selections (three different entrees) were bland and honestly flavorless. We did order shrimp and grits as an appetizer and it was excellent. Just not sure what was going on with the rest of it.

Small and loud place. Service was good but food lacked any interesting flavors. I had the pork tenderloin, recommended by my server, and it was just boring.

This place is a Great. The mussels were outstanding along with the sea bass I had for dinner. Service is wonderful. Our waiter was very attentive yet not overbearing. I would recommend this for the couple trying to get away to the foodie that enjoys great food.

The food was excellent! We all had something different and we all agreed it was excellent. As was our waitress! She was very attentive and helpful with anything we needed. We had two birthdays in the group and she took care of both desserts! All agreed we would definitely go back soon as there are so many great things on the menu to try. Thank you for a great evening!

Was in Nashville visiting and decided to try Midtown Cafe as it was within walking distance of our hotel. Turned out to be a great choice. Lots of great menu options at reasonable prices and food was outstanding. Really enjoyed the blackened grouper. Would definitely visit again when back in Nashville.

Absolutely amazing! I was happy to get a reservation the morning we were leaving Nashville. We went a little early and were sat right away. The food was amazing! Our waiter was great and super personable! Definitely a great way to end our trip to Nashville.

ALWAYS a great experience when we go there. Complementary valet is back on, Staff are a delight and usually remember when we were there last. Appetizer's, entree's, deserts and drinks are always made to specifications and served promptly (insider tip: order off the board! never disappoints!)

It has been nearly twenty-five years since we went to Midtown, now we wonder what kept us away. We started out November visiting a different place each day and Midtown was one of our choices, thank goodness. Best meal we have had in a long time, can't wait to go back. Highly recommend it.
