In the last two weeks I have had two wonderful meals at Interim. The first dinner was beautiful treatment of fresh summer vegetables. The next dinner was the seared scallops with mussels and risotto. The dessert was Le Bourbon, an amazing confection with delicious honey and strawberries. See attached picture.

My wife and I went to Interim over the weekend. This is a fine dining restaurant, and the majority of the food dishes I saw looked amazing! We went, however, to experience the fantastic burger that we've heard so much about. It was delicious. Both of us had a regular salad, and it was also delish. Sprinkled with chunks of... More

What an amazing evening. Our server, Hal, was a delight, and provided wonderful service. We were very pleased when Executive Chef David Krog offered to hand-make chicken tenders for my daughter. Wow - they rivaled any I've ever tried anywhere. My duck was Exceptional - with a perfect crisp and seasoning on the skin, and tenderly cooked. My wife enjoyed... More

We had a business dinner with colleagues. The restaurant is nice and friendly. Wines are good. Food is on average upper level but too expensive for me. Anyway it was a nice evening.

Great food, service & atmosphere. You can watch the chefs in the kitchen and see the choice food prepared so you know it is done right.

I am a chef myself and cook a lot of seafood but the mussels I had here where absolutely top-notch. Big compliment to the kitchen. They were tasty and extremely tender. Everything else was very good as well. The dessert appeared the weakest link but mostly because the rest was so outstanding. If I ever come back to Memphis I... More

Great place for fresh local flavors. The kitchen is open aired for viewing and the food was amazing. If you're looking for the salt and pepper you'll have ask for it. Everything was perfectly seasoned we didn't even notice there wasn't any on our table. As I looked around I noticed none of the other tables had them either. From... More

One dinner that was absolutely delicious! The salad with goat cheese and candied pecans was perfect! I chose the vegetable plate with had the tastiest cauliflower I think I have ever had in a restaurant. Dinner was capped off with French pressed coffee and the lemon macaroons- a must if you want something a little different! This will be a... More

We sat at the bar which is a clean modern design. The service was very nice and the food was good. Salad with goat cheese was delish. Mussel app was quite good. The filet dinner was also good as was the scallop dinner. Wine was good but most "by the glass" offerings were a bit pricy - seemed out of... More

I have eaten here many times and will give it five stars for food, service, and atmosphere. That said one of the dishes that has been raved about by a local restaurant reviewer was just plan unappetizing last week. The sweet tea brined chicken was a Cornish game hen rather than the half chicken I expected. It was cold, the... More
