McEwen's on Monroe Ratings and Reviews
Visiting Memphis, excellent service from Ashley . My daughter and I both had the salmon excellent with risotto. Caesar salad prior was plenty for 2 . My husband had the chicken and was very pleased . Wine list n cocktails were both well listed . Valet parking reasonable 8.00 . Doesn't look special outside but a gem inside.
Just happened upon this place while in Memphis for a couple of days. Within walking distance of our hotel (Madison), close to the riverfront, food was wonderfully prepared, and the staff was exceptional.
Stopped in Memphis post the Great Smoky Mountain Half Marathon, making our way back to OKC, with my wife and the in-laws. The food was wonderful and fit everyones dietary requirements (in-laws are vegetarians). The staff was accommodating, pleasant, and able to make great suggestions (I appreciate when the staff is as passionate about the food as the chef).
Great place, we will definitely go back if we ever visit Memphis again.
I ordered the trust me vegetarian... I did not care for the sesame on it. Personal preference.... Appetizer perfect, salad perfect... My husband's food perfect.... Sorry to say but the sesame just left a weird taste and I wasn't a fan... That is the only "ding". We will be back it was great! Will recommend to others!
Local products well prepared, with creativity. Started with intensely flavored watermelon salad, followed with earthy wild mushrooms, a juicy not fatty chicken thigh atop fabulous corn pudding, and finished with a grilled peach paired with a Dickel rye (great recommendation from our waiter).
Going out to dinner was a last minute decision for us. We were able to get an early reservation. We chose to order fried green tomatoes appetizer. They were yummy. The special of the night was a halibut. It was fabulous as were the potatoes with which they were served. I can't think of a time when I was disappointed at McEwen's.
Every single dish was to die for!! The sweet potato crusted catfish was phenomenal. I would go back just for that! We enjoyed the ambiance as well. The service left a little to be desired. It was unclear who our actual waiter/ waitress was. Different people came at different times, and there was quite a long wait for the check. The food was so delicious though that I will happily overlook that!
Jacob was great! My friend ordered the watermelon salad, tomato/mozzarella salad, and tenderloin sliders from the small plates menu & the berry cobbler for dessert. I had the salmon entree and the banana cream pie with Carmel sauce. Food and service were excellent!
We were traveling and were only in Memphis for one night. The restaurant was our choice mainly based on walking distance from our hotel. From the moment we walked in and confirmed our reservation to the moment we left, we felt management and staff were happy to have our business. The menu was chock full of well-designed dishes and the preparation matched tastes and flavors beautifully!
The service was top-notch. We opted for cocktails versus wine and they were well built and tasty as well.
I wish I could bottle this place and the pride they have in their product. So few restaurants I visit have the concern for their patrons that we experienced at McEwen"s. If I get back to Memphis, I'll make an effort to revisit this fine restaurant!
We were in town visiting and a local bar tender reccommended your restaurant to us! I have to say that we had one of our top dining experiences EVER!!! Loved the food, the Vingette Pino was fabulous and our service (young dark haired guy- sorry I can't remember his name) was excellent!!! Hats off to your chef! We had the salmon and catfish!!! Can't wait to come back!!!
We were sat immediately for our 7:30 reservation on a Saturday night. I ordered a lemon drop martini (they do not have pomegranate liquor or juice) which is great. My husband had a glass of wine which came the same time and was nicely chilled. Upon ordering, the brought wonderful small biscuits. I wish they would have brought butter because a biscuit requires it. They did bring two odd small butter balls when we asked. But it was ice cold and with its round shape in a small bowl, it would roll around as you tried to cut it and then slide out of the bowl onto the table.
I had a pear salad with goat cheese which was skippy on both, but it tasted great. I had the ribeye with scalloped potatoes. This dish sang! It was the best meal in my 4 days in Memphis. The potatoes were aggressively seasoned which some may not like, but I did. My husband had the tenderloin with mashed potatoes and really enjoyed it. I had a chocolate desert with raspberry sauce which was just 'ok' and not particularly memorable. I would definitely return, even if it was to order the exact same meal again.
