    Everything was superb. From drinks to starters to the main dishes. The desserts were out of this world. We had the cheesecake and the bread pudding. Both were amazing. The service was also perfect. One if the best dining experiences I have had anywhere. I will definitely return and will recommend midtown to friends and family. The food and service here rivals much more pricey restaurants. When deciding where to eat in Nashville we were looking for a more local down to earth restaurant with exceptional food, drinks and service. We found all of those in midtown cafe!

    Entrees were good, desserts were disappointing. Needs a refresh as far as atmosphere but is pretty reliably good. This food experience was not as good as it’s been in times previous. Love the idea of a free shuttle to different downtown destinations after dinner!

    Truly wonderful. It was not what I had expected (when I booked it), and we had an outstanding meal from start-to-finish. The service was great, and it was just a terrific Nashville/West End experience. I would come back to try more items on the menu. The food was so good!

    Our food was good but not great. Our server was ok - it was clear that he had more tables then he should. We were placed by the door and every time someone came in we were cold and made our food cold- not a great experience for a $22 salad. For the price of lunch there are other places in the neighborhood that offer a greater value.

    Ryan, and Gemma at the bar provide the best level of service. I went in for breakfast four mornings in a row because the food is consistent and tasty, the drinks are amazing, and their friendly smiling faces are friendly. You'll feel like you're hanging out with your best friends. The hostess is exceptional, and she greets you with a warm smile and great energy. Make a reservation on open table to ensure seats as there's always a bit of a wait.

    My wife and I were a little apprehensive as we walked up to Midtown Cafe. It is a small building that is dwarfed by all of the buildings around it. Once we got in, we were extremely pleased with everything! The food was fabulous! My wife had roast pork and I had blackened grouper. They were both excellent. All the side dishes were wonderful. The prices are not low, but the quality shines through on everything. We will definitely visit Midtown Cafe again!
