    Always an excellent meal or apps and a drink. It is nice that they have valet parking. I can go get a meal or drinks and small plates before the Grizzlies gam and go right out get in my car and park in Fedx Forum. Much better and easier pre game snack or dinner than places within walking distance of the game.

    The wine, martini, and scotch were the perfect start, followed by shared brussel sprouts. We each ordered different entrees. They included the tenderloin, the fish special, and the short rib pasta. Each was exceptional. Our server was friendly and our meal was not rushed. The dessert was absolutely delicious as well!

    Great Valentine’s Day experience. We had a late reservation and had to wait a few minutes, and ended up seated in the wine cellar. It was an intimate setting with a two other tables of guests. We had a party of 4 and everyone was pleased with appetizers, entrees, and cocktails. My sea bass was perfect!

    Superb service. The food was delicious and presented well. The cheesecake was divine. My glass remained full and somehow I never noticed when someone was filling my glass. The staff were helpful, all worked together, but made the ambience such you had a nice quiet time at your table. Highly recommend.

    We have not been to McEwen’s in several months and I do have to say that the portion sizes of the $45 entree we got was very small. Not a good value for the price for sure.

    I recently took my friend Missy out to celebrate her 37th birthday and told her to get ready for a memorable dinner at a special place. McEwen's was that place and she's still smiling about the night. The atmosphere, the service, the food, the thoughtful suggestions from our superb waiter - thank you, Lee - and the friendliness of our hostess and even the manager all contributed to a wonderful night. Five stars, all around! We will be back soon.

    I ordered the halibut special and my husband ordered the bone in pork. We also got two appetizers, two desserts, and a cocktail. As always everything was cooked to perfection and the cocktail paired well with my entree. The service was great, everyone who worked in the area in which we sat was attentive to our table. Next time I’ll ask to sit in the dining room to the right or the bar area. I like the atmosphere in those areas even more than the back dining room.
