Impeccable food and outstanding service. An ambient dining
gem. Great art, too. Do not miss this one in Nashville. Always good, very consistent, and never disappoints.

We had a wonderful experience for brunch during the holiday weekend. Cannot remember our servers name, but she was fantastic & so friendly! If we lived in Nashville we would for sure done here often.

I ordered the southwest chicken salad which has fried chicken on it. My main complaint is that the chicken seemed to be a sliver thin filet with a heavy coating and fried to just short of burnt, then sliced into strips. It was very chewy and the chicken was almost imperceptible in the final product. Very disappointing for Midtown Cafe which has always been so wonderful.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant. The food was amazing. The Lemon Artichoke salad was divine. i also felt comfortable with the infection control and social distancing they were using to keep me safe.

Our server didn't have his act together. Missed putting the appetizers in altogether and generally delayed with every request (except the check). It's a cute place and there was plenty order from.

This is the Crown Jewel of resturants in Nashville. It is consistently great. Even after a tough last four months the food is simply delicious and wonderfully served. I recommend this resturant to everyone. Thank you Randy!!!!

All of the staff were very nice. Food was delicious. Really nice feature to have a van that could take you back downtown free if you spent $30 per person. We were 9 ladies out for a long weekend. The driver was very nice and accommodating. We all agreed this was a great dining experience ! We would definitely go back

Even though it was busy, our table was ready when we arrived. This is often not the case, even with a reservation. Service was prompt and efficient. Food was well-prepared and tasty. Well worth a visit.

Went based on the Nashville Eater Essential 38 recommendation. We were the youngest by 25 years easily. Ordered a Caesar salad (it was precut lettuce and shredded Parmesan cheese). The main courses were solid -sea bass and shrimp and grits. The cocktails were nothing special. Coconut cake was good but not great. Would not return. There are too many other great options in the city.

Fantastic meal! The lemon artichoke soup was literally the best soup I have ever eaten. Everyone at the table was raving about the food. I only wished that I left room for dessert! Server was attentive and friendly. Awesome experience overall.

Great meal and close to our hotel. I had salmon and my husband enjoyed his catfish. The artichoke lemon soup was as goood as all the reviews said. The little muffins were delicious too. We had a bottle of wine and two beers as well as the soup and two entrees and shared a large Caesar salad. The bill was $131 including a 20% tip. Thought of going back the next day but wanted to try something else.
