    This was the first time I had been to Midtown Cafe since the pandemic. It had transitioned from a nice business lunch location to a more casual dining feel with breakfast as an option. It was very busy and a little noisy for general conversation. Service was great and food was good. Not as upscale as it had been before the pandemic.

    A very diverse menu with tons of options. We had the lemon artichoke soup to start-so good, I am still thinking about it. The Julia Child menu looked great and my mother had the beef bourguignon and loved it. I had the juevos tostada and ate far more than I needed to. There is a reason the restaurant has lasted as long as it has!

    Food and service were great!! We had fried green tomatoes and nachos to start-yum. Two of us had the voule vent from the Julia Childs special menu and the other two people had veal three ways. We topped off dinner with yummy desserts-coconut cake, cheesecake, warm chocolate cake and chocolate pecan pie! Didn’t think we could eat it all, but we did!! Highly recommend this place.

    My friends and I LOVE dining at the Mid-Town Cafe! The food is always delicious and the service outstanding. And the shuttle service to the theater is an exceptional benefit. The most difficult thing is having to decide what to eat - there are so many dishes to choose from! We're already looking forward to our next visit.

    We were headed downtown to see Hamilton and have always heard how convenient the shuttle was from Midtown. Not only was the Julia Childs dinner delicious but service was awesome. Ryan got us all set up w the shuttle even after I not knowingly waited until the last minute. Above and beyond! Great night- we’ll be back with you before any downtown shows.

    We went from a 4 person reservation to a 5 person reservation for a birthday celebration and I appreciate the efforts required to accommodate the change. We had 2 gluten intolerant people who had an easy time with a wide variety of choices. It would have been nice to have been offered the gluten free bread that we eventually discovered. The food was superb and wine just right. We enjoyed the evening so much we closed down the place!
