Great location, food and ambience. Met there for NYE dinner with friends and overall experience was great. Our server was nice and polite.

First time dining at Midtown Grille and we plan on returning! A very comfortable place, service was fantastic, menu selection was very good..pricing was in line and affordable. We're looking forward to return to try some other menu items.

Our dinner for four on a Wednesday evening was perfect. The food was very fresh (two of us had the salmon) and creative. The staff was very accommodating and happily made a few changes necessitated by a food allergy. The wine list was very good, and a lot of thought went into the planning of the menu. We had no problem finding items that suited our varied tastes. Our server was professional and delightful. We look forward to returning to Midtown Grille.

This used to be one of my favorite restaurants. The menu has changed for the worse, the service was subpar and I am so very disappointed. The only thing the same is the hostess and bartender who are excellent.
I don't know if the ownership changed or just the chef, but Midtown has lost its magic. :(

We've been to Midtown Grille many times and frankly were quite disappointed in the quality of the food. The portions were small the quality wasn't up to our past visits. Good service, like the new manager. Good wines

I've been to Midtown before but for some reason, this time, the waitress treated me (and the person I was with) like we were just there for drinks and that's about it. I had to ask if there were any items not included on the menu. Then after I ordered appetizers and drinks, the waitress asked if we were also having dinner at the establishment. As if when you are seated at a table, it wouldn't be right to assume you were going to order an entree or more than one course. Nonetheless, I guess I don't have the same physical characteristics as their "regular" patrons so hence the assumptions by the waitress.

I try to eat at Midtown Grill when I travel to Raleigh for business. My associate and I eat there after a full day of trade show and it was very pleasant. I had the shaved mushroom salad and enjoyed it very much.

We've been to this restaurant many times over the past several years, and it has lately been disappointing. Menu is not impressive these days. I finally settled on a dinner choice, and was very underwhelmed by it. We left disappointed with the experience and will put this restaurant down the list for returning soon.

Nice 'later' night option. We shared the dishes - very interesting combinations. Great wine, moderately priced. Only issue was that the smoke from the smokers on patio 'wafted' into the dining room every time doors opened - spoiled subtle flavors. Also service was perplexingly slow and uneven (server did not check back regularly) considering the number of tables.

Ordered flank steak which was done perfectly! Exceptional proactive service which made the whole evening enjoyable and relaxing.
Examples of great service: 1.We weren't waiting that long for our food but the staff proactively offered us a free appetizer because they felt the ticket time was a little late.
- The wine I ordered wasn't to my liking and they gladly replaced it with a another wine no questions asked.
I would definitely come back for the great food and service.

I had the chicken dish which was really very good. We went on a Tuesday, so the half price glasses of wine was also a really big plus. Downside was we had a party of 6 and gratuity was already added to the bill. Not that the service wasn't good and I didn't intend on tipping 20%, just find it annoying when servers do this. Will definitely be back again!

I've seen Midtown for many years and wanted to try it. The waitress immediately wanted an drink order even before we had an opportunity to look at the menu (and then proceeded to say I'll be back with water). Then we ordered a drink and an appetizer and then after the drink was brought to the table, we placed our dinner order. We asked for straws and never received them. I had to ask for bread once our meal came. I would say it was not a very good experience and celebrated our anniversary there. I would not recommend it for dinner.

We were there at 630 on a Saturday evening. One other group was eating.
The restaurant was not busy at all and still not busy when we left at 745.
The food was dissappointing. Portions are very small and the prices are very big!
In comparable restaurants around town, the meal size and cost are much much better.
My catfish was dry and thin cut. My wife's beef rib was a very small portion, embarrassingly so.
And it looked and tasted more like a common pot roast.
We will not go back.

Service and delivery of food was very slow for the lunch hour. The restaurant was not that busy, yet we waited nearly 30 minutes for our food to arrive. In the evening, with a glass of wine, that might be acceptable. At a weekday lunchtime, that is not. Additionally, because we had a party of 6, we had an automatic gratuity of 20% for subpar service.

MG was great! We enjoyed it very much! Very fancy Restuarant and the food we got was phenomenal! The calamari was the best we had, shrimp and grits and the salmon were on point too! Staff was great and helpful. Good spot. Highly recommend. Thank you!

Food and service here are excellent. The wine by the glass menu features some excellent wines including some higher priced wines that normally are only sold by the bottle. Service is low key friendly and inobtrusive but still staying quite professional . A great place to have a nice lingering dining experience without having to shout at your table guests.
