Lunch didn't seem to draw in a big crowd, but it should. The service was top notch asking about food allergies and paying close attention to our needs. The food was good. Even though my grilled chicken sandwich was a little dry, the sauce and coleslaw helped with overall flavor. I would go back.

Club music was turned on mid-way through our lunch. Strange. Food was good but pricey.

We were one of only two dining parties. The food was good, but the service was lacking. Not exceptional, wouldn’t recommend or return.

Promptly greeted and seated, although the hostess ignored our request made thru Open Table for a high top. Tables are close together and despite there being open space elsewhere, we were led to a table with diners already seated on either side. We wedged in.

Ordered the butter lettuce salad at the recommendation of the server. I requested chicken be added, my colleague asked for the salmon be ordered to hers. Salads arrive, both with chicken. Server apologized, making some excuse about the ticket not printing correctly. Whatever.

Salad might have been good, but was absolutely drowning in dressing. Bacon was largely absent too. So many other great choices in the loop. Go elsewhere.

The staff at Midland was incredibly kind and accommodating! I love brunch places in the city where you can make a reservation. It's certainly helpful. Plus the food was great!

This is an outstanding new healthy alternative to the loop dining scene. They have great vegan, vegetarian, gluten free and other alternatives. It is an eclectic menu with delicious food. Bravo!

Great atmosphere and a creative menu but $30-$40 even for a business lunch without wine is pricey.

This is an odd place...the food and service were good. It is very expensive-$70 for two for lunch-no alcohol, no dessert.

Midland Social Club has suitable spacing of tables and high backed chairs to make a business meal sufficiently private. The food is interesting and tasty, the service is helpful but not hovering. I'll go back for more meals in the coming year.

The Midland Social Club is a unique restaurant tucked away. When you walk into the foyer, you walk up to some heavy, ornate double doors that automatically open for you. It’s almost like a “secret club” you enter.
The food was good and prices seemed a bit pricey for the limited menu but it is downtown Chicago so this certainly was not a surprise. Food was good, hot and served promptly.

The Midland is a good place for lunch in the center city. The BLT was a fresh and crisp sandwich and was delicious. The salmon was a bit dry but the chopped salad with chopped Brussels sprouts was very tasty. The mixed grain bowl with quinoa and brown rice needed more flavoring.

Our server and the kitchen was very accommodating. But my salad was very soggy and the bun was burned on one of the lobster rolls. It was a fun atmosphere but not everyone loved their meals.

The veggie dish with egg was great! My friend had the French toast and loved it. It was my friend’s birthday and they gave her a chocolate cake with ice cream.

We enjoyed it but the menu was very limited so if there is someone in your group with dietary restrictions it may be hard for them to choose a meal.

Inside the W hotel the restaurant setting couldnt be finer - the ornate, galleried libby of a former bank. The adjacent bar sits prominently in this atrium-like area. Very cool.

Roc was downtown and called for lunch .....


She called a requested lunch at Midland Social Club

She order the same item from the menu again, a salad with a piece of salmon ...

The salad dressing was made of ginger, sesame oil, soy sauce, and honey..... that's how they make a dressing for Rochelle.

The salmon was place on the top the salad.
Wow!

I’ve eaten here for lunch twice, both for business and pleasure. Food and service both times were excellent. I had a Delicious generously sized cabbage salad with chicken both times as my entree and my table had the deep fried shrimp appetizer (delicious!) and a tagliatelle pasta dish. Substitutions were allowed with no hassle. I’ll definitely be back.

Food was fantastic. Great breakfast selection and everything was fresh and came in a timely matter. However, 2 people in our party ordered bottomless mimosas for $25 and the server only stopped by to refill maybe once. We were not checked up on and were the only people in the restaurant. We watched the servers and other staff members hang out and chat by the bar while we were ignored. For food, a great pick. Service was subpar at best.

Came here for lunch. Great ambience, good food, and fun atmosphere. However service was subpar as I had to seek out other staff just to get refills (it wasn't even busy). Could be great with better servers.

Extremely noisy people in the restaurant exacerbated by the shape of the walls.
Not conducive for a business lunch or if you would like to hear the person next to you.
