We sat in the bar (which I often prefer). I ordered the lobster risotto. It was a small plate, but it was delicious. I would go to this restaurant again.

Group business meal. Ordered the rib-eye, *wow* fantastic, top 3 I have ever had, just the perfect glaze with pan searing and a perfect amount of habanero "peek-through." Expertly cooked. I can't wait to return and have it again. And peanut butter bacon cheesecake, really memorable and just right amount of NOT sweet. Kudos here! Please, go visit.

We had a girl's luncheon recently and w/ 6 ladies- we enjoyed a variety of enters. My personal favorite is the chicken tostada- but several had the lunch special of trout over polenta that got rave reviews. They also have several vegetarian options. Prices at lunch are much lower than dinner and a great value for downtown. Only minor complaint... More

We usually eat at McEwens on Monroe in Memphis, TN when we come to Memphis for the St. Jude Marathon. We discovered this restaurant about 8 yrs. ago. This time, we brought friends with us. As always, the food was delicious and the service was great. The only complaint we had during this visit was that there was a table... More

Small but cozy place. Husband had the salmon which was very good. I had oyster appetizer, wedge salad and small plate of skirt steak and tater tots. Food is pricey but very good.

The waitperson and host were not so pleasant, but we loved the salmon and the salads. Also had a good tenderloin.

Small, unpretentious place with excellent service and very good food. My wife had salmon and I had scallops which tasted terrific. Good selection of wines. You must finish with the Banana Cream Pie - it was to die for. Definitely one to have on your list.

We had dinner at McEwen's last night and had a delightful meal. I had the NY strip and others in my party had the pork and fish specials. The steak was good, not the best I have ever eaten and a little tough but it was good. Salads and sides were imaginative and tasty. Deserts were well prepared and tasty.... More
