Fabulous, fun atmosphere and great food – My husband, myself, and one other couple had an early dinner at The Midtown Cafe before attending a concert at the Ryman. Upon being seated we informed the waitress what time we needed to leave to be at our show. My husband was very concerned about the traffic and limited parking as there were several other events going on downtown that evening. Our waitress brought our drinks and said that she had taken the liberty of checking to see if one of the "shuttles" would be able to take us to our concert as well as pick us up, she assured us that it would be their pleasure to get us to the concert and back. We were all suprised and thrilled that this young lady took the time to arrange our transportation for us, it made the great food and positive atmosphere that much more enjoyable. We were able to sqeeze in dessert and had just finished our coffee when the hostess informed us that the shuttle was ready. I think this is a great service and we couldn't have been more pleased with the evening.
Highly Overrated – I love food. I've been to this resturant in the past for a work lunch. I had lamb chops and they were fantastic! This was about four years ago. A few weeks ago, I was craving lamb and remebered the resturant, this time spending my own money (keyphrase: my own money). Needless to say, I was quite disappointed. When I ordered the lamb chops, I emphasized that I wanted them WELL. The server mentioned the butternut squash, which on the menu said that mashed potatoes were included. I'm not a fan of the squash and expressed that. She talked me into trying them, saying that the mashed potatoes and the squash were mixed together (odd, but I'd try it). I get my meal. Not only were the lamb chops medium instead of well, the squash did not come with the mashed potatoes and they tasted like they had freezer burn. This $30 plate also had an over vinegarized small "salad" that was discusting. Of course, I asked for the mashed potatoes, which were good, not exceptional. It turns out the menu had not been updated and someone in the kitchen may have previously been a short order cook. There was no one else in the resturant but me and one other table at this time (I got there right at opening on a Sunday), I don't understand why my food had to be rushed and due to the fact that it was $30 before taxes and tips; I don't understand why I was fed the improperly cooked meat and the freezer burned vegetables. At that price, I'd expect for it to be fresh and right the first time. This wasn't how I remembered. Then again, the first time I didn't pay myself, so I could have overlooked the mistakes.
looking for a bargain – I frequent Midtown Cafe evey few months for lunch. I always get something different but I start with the artichoke soup. I used to think it is the best in town until I had the artichoke soup at Bridges in Belle Meade. Wow! It is excellent. I will still go to Mid Town every now & then with the gals. But when I want artichoke soup I am going to Bridges. By the way it is less expensive than Midtown Cafe.
fabulose scallops – My date and I went to Midtown Cafe. Consuelo waited on us and suggested the Scallops. My date went with the suggestion and they were out of this world.They came with a mac and cheese that had lobster and brie in it. Wow . We had a bottle of Evolution with it. Thank you Consuelo for dinning experince, it was wonderful. We will go back there again.
just go there! – This place is fabulous. My fiance and I dined there two weeks ago and we're STILL talking about it. The server was fantastic! The food was to die for! I suspect that Midtown Cafe offers the best fare in Nashville. Dine there and enjoy yourself.
Waiter ,Crab Cakes, Wine List – Loved It. My wife and I made reservations and could not wait to get there. We arrived five minutes before our reservations and the place was packed, we waited in the bar for about ten minutes and then we were sat. Greg our waiter was the GREATEST, he was on top of every thing. The WineList is wonderful, and the CRABCAKES are nothing short of perfect. We will be going back soon.
Nice place - Good vibe – food was not to be faulted - nothing was out of this world but we really enjoyed our evening. it's a perfect place for a quiet intimate dinner. could even be a bit romantic...
Tricia is real :) – I read a couple of good reviews about this Tricia person and also about the restaurant. Took my date for dinner tonite; our first formal date. It was a great experience. The food was great especially the bread and Tricia happened to be our waitress. I didn't know the name until after i got home and saw my receipt. I even asked her about who Tricia was and she said it was her! She was absolutely the best waitress ( excusez moi if i am using the wrong term) I have ever had or met. She was very pleasant with us and was just wonderful. Her recommendations about the food was perfect and we had a great evening. Thanks Tricia! I'd go there again just for her :)
Overrated!!! – Carpaccio was so thin you had to scrape it of your plate and it was served with mustard!
Mussels were undercooked. the marlin was overcooked. The brussel sprouts were on the menu as caramelized, but in reality hardly blanched.
All in all very overrated cooking, but a nice atmosphere.
Alittle about Tricia – About Tricia.......i've never met her, but the way she writes about herself is creative and confident. She must be good.
