    Our waitress was thoughtful, the food was memorable and Seth the co-owner suggested a great cocktail. This was our first time here and our second date. It was a very pleasant evening.

    The mussels, chicken and lasagna were all excellent! Our server was also very attentive. I would go back again just to have the chicken.

    Mida was so amazing in accommodating my grandmothers surprise birthday dinner! We all had the best time. The food and ambiance was so lovely and perfect for our special occasion. Lucy, our server was great. So helpful, she did the best job. Especially since we had a large group and some extra requests which I know can be challenging for wait staff to juggle with everything else they have to do. Really appreciated that. In general I also just love this restaurant. It’s beautiful and the food is delicious.

    Went for a special occasion. Everything was wonderful. Sat outside. Only criticism is that if we had been inside the noise level would have been uncomfortable. Wish that could be addressed as we plan to come back. Otherwise food was delicious, service friendly and efficient. And prices reasonable. Atmosphere was friendly and casual. Definitely repeatable.

    We had a very pleasant experience @ Mida's. Our waiter was extremely attentive, pleasant and made our experience beautiful. Our food was delicious and we certainly plan on returning for dinner. I do have a couple of suggestions though: 1). There is only 1 Gluten Free option on the whole menu and that is a pasta dish. My daughter has celiac disease and surprisingly as I said no options. Her pasta dish was very delicious but for someone who has celiac the choices are very minimal. I don't understand why they wouldn't have Gluten Free pizza which was a shocker. 2). The ceaser salad was so small for $15.00, I don't think we will order that again.

    Thank you for choosing Mida and for your valuable feedback! We're thrilled you enjoyed your evening with us and found the food delicious. Your suggestions regarding gluten-free options are noted, and we understand the importance of catering to dietary needs like Celiac disease. We apologize for the limited choices and will definitely explore adding gluten-free pizza and more options to our menu. Regarding the Caesar salad, we appreciate your feedback on the portion size and pricing, and we'll review this to ensure better value. We hope to have the opportunity to serve you again soon and provide an even better experience. - Team MIDA
