I was in Nashville for an alumni event and made reservations at the Midtown Cafe for a Friday Night. While the restaurant is fairly intimate, it doesn't feel cramped or crowded. I also found the service to be quite good. Our waiter, whose name I can't remember, was attentive, but not overly so. He was genuinely friendly, rather than the "I'm being nice to you because it's my job" sort of way that can be the case with servers. I had the shrimp and grits for my entree and was not disappointed. The grits were ground in-house and made with smoked gouda. The shrimp were large and generous in number. For dessert, we had the house-made gelato...definitely worth saving room for.
I'll definitely return when I'm back in Nashville. One more thing...the biscuits that they bring out to the table are phenomenal.
