    This was our first time at Midtown Reserve. We had heard great things about this place and finally got to try it. The service, food, and drinks were amazing! We will be back without a doubt. We were so impressed! Thanks!

    This restaurant has so much potential but has fallen short on two separate occasions. On each occasion there were only 2 less than desirable reservation times and when we entered the restaurant, on the first visit no one else came in the whole evening. On the second visit, there were two other tables so I didn't understand the difficulty in getting the time we would have preferred to dine. We started with cocktails and quickly discovered the bartending isn't consistent from bartender to bartender. I ordered a cosmopolitan was served sans Cointreau and staff did not offer to correct the problem. I was excited to see some nice wines on our first visit, but took a pass after seeing the bottles stored in what looked like a shower enclosure and at room temperature. On our second visit we brought our own wine and paid corkage, only to be presented with two cloudy glasses and after the bottle was opened and it was "serve yourself". I did enjoy my pricey steak, however. Servers were busy chatting at the bar and not very attentive.

    The four of us had to eat at a high top table, which was way too small to accommodate all the food. The food was very good, but we asked for our steak to be medium rare, but it was medium, so cooked a little more than we like! Otherwise, we really liked it and will definitely be back!

    When we arrived, we were told we had 90 minutes to eat and leave. Not unheard of, but 90 minutes was not enough time and we were not notified at the time of booking the table. While the four reminders of this time limit throughout dinner was very unwelcoming and uncomfortable, the real problem was with the cold dismissal. The check was brought with dessert and we were asked to leave with half full wine and drink glasses just 10 minutes beyond the set time limit. There were tables that were sat before us still eating and not being asked to leave and three empty tables at that time. Very bizarre. Good food, but awkward and somewhat embarrassing end to what could have been a great experience.

    Midtown ReserveResponded on January 6, 2023Hello! We apologize for any confusion on our table times. Our policies are listed on OpenTable at time of booking your reservation, but understand that can be overlooked. The evening of your reservation we did have large parties who are honored a longer dining time. Our serving team is asked to remind guests of their time restriction when guests arrive late as to not make any one feel uncomfortable. Our serving team is trained to offer bar seating for walk-ins or those who wish to stick around past their dining time, whether it is to enjoy a dessert or drink. Unfortunately, there was a table assigned to your seat afterward whom sat down 10 minutes late. We want to ensure all patrons are seated at their booked time and also have the opportunity to dine the full time they are offered. We apologize for any confusion and hope your next dining experience with us is enjoyable.

    The special wine dinner was excellent. Traci’s pairings with each course were spot on. The food in each course was prepared & presented extremely well. Congrats to the Chef & all involved in this superb event.

    Exceptional menu Every course was very good Caesar Salad was very good The main course was very good but it was served on a cold plate and for a thin slice of meat it meant that the meat and potatoes were cold The dessert was very good.

    The best steak we’ve had in years. It literally melted in your mouth. Loved the menu… so many good options. Recommend sharing a salad… too much for 1 person. Love the sharing sides too. Great service… maybe too attentive. We felt rushed at times. Cool space. Would maybe add some lights and porch pots outside… it’s pretty dark and not the most visible location. Will come back!

    Food and service were fantastic. A breath of fresh air for CR. I would recommend something to dampen the noise though. Ambience was great until the place filled up. Then, it was hard to hear across our table.

    This place is only been open a few weeks, but my wife and I went there for her birthday. Excellent experience. Highly recommend. We travel all over the US and eat in our fair share of fine, dining, restaurants, and the steak that was prepared for me. Would rival any place I’ve ever been. Two thumbs up We will be back!!!
