Ok, what to say… Midpoint is in a fun location and the service is good. We, all four of us, found the food to be lacking in flavor. We tried a wide variety of dishes but none stood out. Prices/value just wasn’t there. I wish...I could be more positive about Midpoint but I can’t. Perhaps you should try it for yourselves.More

Been there twice. Will definitely go again. Service: Friendly. Relaxed. Food: Tasty and satisfying. Portions: Average. Beers: Small but good selection on tap. Ambiance: loved their patio. On a nice summer day, seat and eat for hours.

Great place for lunch We had Musakka with Rice & Cacik and Chicken Shish with Rice and Salad. The pre-fix $10 lunch menu was a great find. You can try many things. It is a bit likely a tasting menu. All very tasty! We will...definitely return!More

In the same space and under the same ownership as the former Istanbul Cafe, Midpoint has been totally renovated and freshened. The dining area is bright and modern and stylish. They've added an outdoor seating section, and the menu is totally revamped. All our food,...especially the mezze plate to start, was exquisite. Convenient parking lot right next door, too.More

My wife and I had the pleasure of dining here for dinner and what a treat we had !! The entire meal was great and the staff were so helpful in recommending the different dishes that are on the menu. The kitchen staff came out...to our table to ask us how everything was, we were very happy with our selections, that was a nice touch. We will definitely come back to enjoy another great meal.More

I ordered take out. The people in the restaurant were very friendly. The food on the other hand was very bland. The chicken shish was dry and without any flavor. If not for the burned ends I wouldn’t have known I was eating it. The...rice and couscous was also bland. The Shepherds salad was oily and also without flavor (the tomatoes were mushy). Not an enjoyable meal unfortunately and I didn’t get to experience the “fine dining” aspect 😩More

This is our favorite restaurant in New Haven. The best ingredients, not expensive, and great staff. We live it!

This was a nice restaurant - pleasant service. Obviously stays quite busy. The food seemed classic Turkish fare and was very good. It seemed on the pricey side for the kind of food it was, but still a good place to go if you're fine...with paying over $20 for a meal. But don't think "Istanbul" when setting your price expectations!More

I have been here a few times in recent weeks and I am consistently impressed with both the delicious food and the friendly, attentive staff. They have a wide variety of menu options, and having tried many of them, I can definitely say it is...all great. I have brought friends here and will continue to do so! This is an excellent choice in the downtown area!!More
