I have dined at Interim for years, and it has gone through a number of very good chefs. I and a party of 8 were there this past weekend, and the food was VERY good. The wine selection is also extensive. It is a bit pricey, but not totally out of line. They do have an excellant hamburger, if you... More

I went here with a mid-size group for brunch. We were seated quickly (had a reservation) and drinks were secured promptly. Food came in a timely manner and was fantastic. Service was really good until the end, when the server became slow and rather abrupt. Overall it was a wonderful meal in a lovely environment.

Enjoyed dinner with clients at this restaurant - lovely grouper and chocolate mousse made by actual French pastry chef. Nice ambiance and staff.

Modern, elegant, mellow. Real farm to table; they even state names of all their providers on the menu. The food is incredible and the service is of the same quality.

We six people had dinner there. I ordered duck breast. It was excellent. The meat of duck isn't dry, and sauces with it were good. I would order it again. And the open kitchen might not be a good idea though, because all the smell permeates your clothes. After dinner, feel like you are a cook yourself.

I had lunch here today and knew I wanted to get the burger because I'd heard it was great. I was not disappointed. The meat was thick, almost too big to eat without cutting the sandwich into smaller pieces, which I saw a several people doing. It was extremely flavorful and the toppings were all fresh. The fries were homemade... More

My wife, two sons, and my daughters-in-law went to Interim on Friday night for a birthday dinner. We sat close to the open kitchen which was great fun watching the chefs prepare the dinners. The dessert chef was especially fun to watch because he has such an artist's approach to his work. It was a little too noisy making it... More

I want to point out the sometimes overlooked casual side of this terrific restaurant. My wife and I like to stop by Interim before a movie at one of the nearby theaters. Most often, we'll keep it lite and order the vegetable plate, cheese plate and a dessert (or 2). Sometimes we'll change it up, and have never been disappointed.... More

Had dinner with my family here while visiting Memphis. Place was very nice inside and the service was friendly and helpful.. All I can say is the menu is surprisingly limited in choices. The taste of the food was just ok. I was disappointed. The cost of some items on the menu were high.
