    Always a terrific meal. Always stellar service. We utilized the Ryman shuttle for the first time and it was such a treat! I will do this again! Our server made sure our meal was delivered with the right amount of time to enjoy and check was delivered with ample time to catch our ride. Dropped off and picked up with valet parking to boot! What a great amenity they offer their local diners!

    Had the most fabulous Seabass and lobster soup. Amazing Wine selection. Dale, my server was top-notch and he even let me try a sample of their lemon artichoke soup as well as the lobster bisque soup. Excellent service excellent ambience and food was cooked to perfection. Highly recommend Midtown Cafe on your next visit to Nashville.

    First time eating here. We were greeted by a friendly hostess who directed us to the bar seating area because we were early. Enjoyed a drink while we waited. We were taken to our table right on time. The waitstaff were friendly, the food was delicious and we were even enticed to get a piece of the almond cake dessert to go. The valet parking was nice seeing as how parking is not overly abundant in this area. We will be back

    We fell over Midtown Cafe last year when staying in Nashville. We made it a specific destination this year on our way home from a stay in Middle Tennessee. Instead of finding somewhere near the airport for dinner, we specifically went to the Midtown Cafe. And it did not disappoint. Dinner was superb. Service was excellent. We will go back again next time we are passing through Nashville.

    We went to Midtown Cafe for Mothers Day brunch, it was our first time. The place was packed, as to be expected on Mom's Day, and the restaurant is small, but it never felt crowded.. it was spaced out nicely. Menu is extensive for a Sunday brunch, there is something for everyone. Overall the food was good, we all enjoyed our meals and pricies are very reasonable for what you get... you will leave full! Would we go back, yes we would, but there are soooo many other options in Nashville to try first. By the way, our server was great; very friendly, helpful with describing the dishes on the menu, and efficient. Thank you!

    There was a wreck on interstate 40 we called saying we would be late. The hostess, was fantastic. She said I have your table ready and she moved it up. 15 minutes. Service was impeccable. Food was the best we’ve had. We have eaten there before, but it’s been a while. Wish we had not waited so long thanks again Midtown staff y’all are the greatest. Thanks to you. My wife had a great Mother’s Day.

    Booked a reservation for an early Mother’s Day Brunch. The service was excellent from the moment we pulled up to the valet stand. The hostess greeted us and immediately showed us to our table. Our server was attentive and answered our questions about the menu. The food came out very quickly and was delicious. Highly recommend!

    There are so many new places in Nashville but Midtown never disappoints. Plus they still have the delicious Sunset Ceasar which I loved at Sunset Grill and am so thankful it was included on Midtown's menu. My colleagues and I sampled the brunch so I had a very delicious Midtown benedict (and of course the salad!) & my friends had a spinach omelet and the Rueben sandwich that was so large, they each took home half their order. And oh my, the coconut cake is incredible - moist and delicious with a creamy, not overwhelming icing. Always a treat! Service was terrific, attentive and very friendly.

    The food and service was fantastic. Unfortunately, due to us having made the reservation through OpenTable, they were over booked and had to sit us at the bar. They did offer us a free appetizer, but the crowds around the bar waiting for their tables really took away from the nice dinner experience we were looking for.

    Get the trout; it’s delicious! Save room for the strawberry cake. The very helpful staff told us about the shuttle to the Schermerhorn; we avoided having to wait so long to exit the parking garage after the symphony. Eat at Midtown Cafe and take the shuttle to the event. It’s painless.
