Midtown Grille Ratings and Reviews
Would not recommend this restaurant. I normally choose not to do restaurant reviews because the restaurant could be having an off day. However, after reading other reviews, I have to agree with what many have written. For the price, I expect quality and better tasting food. I ordered the crab cake sandwich without the bread for lunch. The crab cake was watery, tasteless and although a thin crab cake, did not appear to be cooked properly. The restaurant is in a wonderful location, nice ambiance/seating/tables, quiet, and great service. Just wish the food matched all the other qualities.
Ok Food, great service but nothing to go out of your way for. Was there for Sunday Brunch, Bartender has no idea how to properly make a Bloody Mary and the Mimosa didn't leave a positive lasting impression. Food was ok but then again how do you mess up eggs and potatoes. Nice place but a little overpriced.
Saw many advertisements in and around north hills about the midtown grill . Seemed like a popular well liked establishment by the locals. Unfortunately our experience fell short of our expectations. Food was okay. Saturday night at 7:15 was not as crowded as expected. More hype than anything.
The Mussels. Fantastic. We'd probably get them every time. I also got a fantastic house ground burger, cooked perfect medium rare, with hand cut truffle fries. I almost felt bad using ketchup....but I love ketchup. My wife got the fish of the day (halibut), which she wasn't a fan of, however not for lack of quality. I just dont think it was her thing. The other elements of the dish such as the bean salad and the broth were amazing.
Very cute place. Looking forward to going to one of their beer or wine events. The only nit criticism was a blinky light up in the ceiling that was a bit distracting.
We will return without a doubt.
Enjoyed the meal very much and the food and service were excellent but the portion size of the Alaskan halibut and veggies was really small for the money ($29). I will have to say though, even though it was small (and I'm not a big eater) it was one of the best dishes I've had there. Wedge salad was also excellent. Husband had hangar steak and was very satisfied.
I really want to like the Midtown Grill but it is just inconsistent. Some menu items are fantastic. Truly great. Others are not. And are a disappointment. Servers cannot describe menu items or wine selections and leave out key ingredients or misidentify others.
we had a party of six come to this restaurant for Father's Day. we were seated at the assigned time but that was the only good experience we had. The person that waited on our party took our order and never came back. She was most attentive to her other tables. When food came the dish I had ordered was warm as if it had sat in the kitchen before given to me and the egg (fried ) was extra crispy along the outside and cooked hard in the center. Although our waitress was a no show after taking our order, there was a twenty percent gratuity added to our check. we will not be responding back!
Midtown Grill has great food. But for a Friday night it was empty, which I thought was strange. From the hostess staff to our waitress, they certainly weren't too friendly. We almost felt like they really did not want to be there at all. Maybe just a bad night! I would go back and eat the food again though!!
Four of us had lunch here during Triangle Restaurant week. While the food was exceptional ( strawberry gazpacho, shrimp and grits, desserts....) and the server did his best, something was way off. We were in our seats for over an hour and a half and waited for our entrees for an hour. I LOVE trying new restaurants and Triangle Restaurant Week allows that at a very nice price, but if a restaurant isn't ready for increased lunch traffic, they simply shouldn't participate. I can only hope that was the reason for the terrible timing.
We went to Midtown Grille during Restaurant Week, which made it affordable! Delicious appetizers (I had strawberry gazpacho and my husband had the whitefish salad), and fabulous entrees (I had the chicken with barley and bokchoy, my husband had the lamb-sausage with pasta). I had enough chicken to bring leftovers home. We split both desserts--warm blueberry crumble with blueberry ice cream on top, and a chocolate flourless torte--both wonderful! Service was attentive but not overwhelming. Atmosphere was really pretty. Noise level was odd--didn't feel noisy (no overpowering music), but it was difficult to hear conversation for some reason. With the Restaurant Week pricing ($30 per person for three course meal), we still ended up spending close to $100 by the time we each had a glass of wine with dinner and coffee with dessert. Would definitely come back for a special occasion.
