    My wife and I have been a couple years ago and both the scallop and shrimp and grit entrees were wonderful. This time I had 3 Veals (piccata, Oscar, and saltimbocca) and my wife had the Veal Oscar. No distinguishing flavors between the three. My wife and I thought it wasn’t even fair or mediocre. We also had cocktails. I had the mule with bourbon and my wife had a peach martini. Neither tasted good. Alcohol seemed of low quality and the tastes of the drinks were not good. Very disappointing experience for $157.00 tab before tip for two. Maybe the scallops and shrimp and grits are still good, but I will not be going back to find out.

    Four of us had a lovely evening at Midtown. The comp valet parking is nice. We shared a Caesar salad and it was excellent. Two guests really enjoyed the chicken piccata. Another had the meatloaf and loved it. Another thought the blackened grouper was really great. I had the shrimp and grits and among the best ever. Service was perfect. A wonderful evening all around.

    We had an awesome experience for our first trip. Dan was great along with the hostess an other staff. They hooked us up with their shuttle to take us to our show and it really worked out well. Now that we know this is something we will keep in mind for future visits. The food and service were so good that we are going back to try breakfast out.

    Great place for a very nice lunch, especially if you are on a lunch break or in a hurry. The food came out fast, and was well prepared. Our party had mussels, spinach salad, fried chicken over a green salad and meatloaf. Everything was good, chicken and meatloaf were not greasy at all. Parking was valet only and very convenient. We had a reservation for 12:15pm, and were getting back in the car at 1pm.

    The free valet is a nice touch to start. Efficient greeting & service. Clean and smell good. It had been a very hot day, so we went with beer and cider instead of our usual red wine. I had a "three way veal" and it was exquisite. My consort was equally happy with her pasta. We would return without hesitation.

    The food was delicious! I had the Coca Cola Short ribs with risotto and shared the Caesar salad with my husband. We also ordered the creamed spinach ( which was more like cream with some spinach in it). We were seated in smaller area near the front of the restaurant so noise level was low and location was private. The service was great as well.

    The Sunset Grill nachos were amazing as well as the brownie a la mode. The flavor for the Grouper ad shrimp and grits was not there- it tasted watery and was not rich in a typical flavor. It was bland, and just wasn’t seasoned well at al. I don’t want to offend anyone by this writing, but i think you should be aware in case others commented similarly.
