I had flank steak and my friend had duck. We were very happy with our choices. The waitstaff was a little too attentive. It's overkill and disruptive to have three different people ask if we wanted another glass of wine. But I suppose that's better than being ignored.

Was there on a friday night, busy but not too much. Great food and service. Had escargot and mussels, lots of garlic and awesome. Had steak poivre and skate as well, really good. Good place fore a big group as not overly crowded and restaurant is generous with the space.

Le Midi Bistro - Excellent Again
Le Midi Bistro has never disappointed me. I have now eaten there several times on different nights and every time was a fabulous experience. Have eaten there a couple of times with larger groups (6-8) and everyone has always enjoyed their meals.
The food has been delightful every time and the service is prompt and engaged. Excellent wine list that is well priced. Also, the restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere - not too loud, the tables are well placed, stylishly decorated. Great bar to gather before the meal.
I will definitely eat here again.

What a great discovery! Came
What a great discovery! Came here with a girlfriend and we were both really impressed, especially as English Francophiles. We had scallops and mussels to start and then boeuf bourgignon - all were delicious. The lovely warm rolls are a nice touch and were very fresh. The most impressive thing about this place though is the pricing - it's really good value but doesn't feel budget. Will be coming back.

Good food and good,friendly service. Nice atmosphere, pleasant but nothing fancy. A great place to go for a nice evening with good conversation. Will definitely go back.

Excellent new French restaurant
Second time I ate here, this time for lunch. Pre fixe was good value and the french onion soup was excellent. Was a little quiet, which meant I could get some writing done. Look forward to going back again.

Wonderful new find in Union Sq.
Grateful to have a wonderful new restaurant in my neighborhood (Union Sq.)!! I couldn't be more pleased with the service and the food. Fabulous brunch, and can't wait to go back for dinner!!

I went to this restaurant for the first time for lunch . I enjoyed each course. The food and service was amazing!

good bang for the buck
A roomy neighborhood place with good food and good value.

Beautiful and good price!
I went to Midi after craving some French Onion Soup, was pleased to find a beautiful open layout restaurant and comfortable booth seating. my server was attentive and sweet, and explained the courses to me in detail. I ordered the French Onion Soup and Frites. whilst waiting for my food I was served fresh baked bread rolls and butter. Delicious!
My soup was perfect, hot and comforting on that rainy day yet robust and filling in flavour. the cheese was delicious. My frites were out of this world and presented to me in a cone shaped wire apparatus. Everything was great and I will be back again...I was too full for dessert!

Nice little bistro by Union Square
This little bistro near Union Square was a nice find. The service staff was very friendly and attentive. They easily handled our party of nine for dinner and everyone enjoyed their food. Decent wine list, too, with a good range of prices.

Friendly service and Good Food
My friend and I had brunch there for the first time today and we enjoyed their food and service very much. I saw most of customers were family especially it was because today was mother's day :) The place was very clean, quiet and very cozy. I had french onion soup and scrambled egg with smoke salmon. Both dishes were great. Next time, I want to try their main menu, such as steak.
5/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great menu, delicious food, good service and never crowded.
5/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
First time there, won't be last!
A friend of mine passed by and liked the menu from the outside so I tried it with my son and his fiancee and all three of us were very happy we went. We will be back again!

Solid food, service and ambience
Although we live in the neighborhood, this place never blipped on our radar. A friend went and told us of it. Noise level was low as it was only 6PM on a Saturday night. Service was friendly and attentive. LOVED the 50's vintage film shown on the HUGE wall above the bar; an old Yves Montand film (if you don't know who that is, a new wave actor and singer, Simone Signoret's husband...don't ask!). Food was very good; salmon on a bed of red lentils and hanger steak with frites. If you come before 6:30 there is a 3 course prix fixe, $25; a great bargain. The pate appetizer is worth the indulgence. Dessert of ice cream, sherbet, creme brûlée. Nice wine, suitably priced. Would definitely go again. Good addition to the neighborhood.

great food and reasonable
Went for an early dinner to make a 7pm off broadway show. Service, food and ambiance excellent. It was a great find in Union Square.

New but deserves a bigger crowd.
Food, Americanized French bistro type, is really very good and at very fair prices. Cavernous space but dining area has not been loud on our visits so far. The fish dishes, coq au vin, and burgers are recommended, as are, on the nights they have them, the sweetbread and brick chicken specials. I'm not that crazy about the old French movies projected over the bar area, but, overall, this is an adult place that obviously cares about straightforward, quality food and giving the customer a good value.
6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a very good meal opting for the very well priced 3 course menu. The food was all cooked properly and quite creative. Even the ice cream and sorbet are made in-house and excellent.
A very good spot if you need to be in that neighborhood.

An unexpected surprise
I was delighted with the meal I had recently at Le Midi. The food and service were both excellent. The restaurant is charming and because of the high ceilings, one can actually have a conversation at the table with friends. The restaurant was very accommodating if you needed to make adjustments to your order. I was also glad to note that the restaurant offered gluten-free pasta options. Can't wait to return.
6/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent food and service
Excellent food and service at reasonable pricing. Will return for more visits.
6/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
My daughter and I were looking for a new spot for dinner, and Le Midi delivered a great experience. Food superb (we had fresh, scrumptious salads and a fresh Skate special), service friendly and appropriately attentive, and ambiance perfect. A very good value and we would love to return.

Good simple french dishes.
Good simple french dishes. Nothing out of this world, but good and well priced. Decent wine list. Good for groups and a relatively moderate noise level making it good for talking across a table of 8. Great service; we had a very friendly and helpful waiter.

Dinner for 3
We went early on a Friday evening and had the prixe fixe early dinner.
Started off with the country duck terrine, which was the first time I had pate. It was served with thin slices of bread, dijon mustard and small gerkins.
For the main entree, we had the roast salmon and steak frites. The roast salmon had the skin crust and very moist on the inside. The steak frites to me was dry and gamey. Not me for me I guess.
For dessert, we had the creme burlee, raspberry and coconut sorbet. Of the three, the creme burlee was the best. Not too sweet or sugary.
Overall a good place to enjoy french cuisine.

We only had the sliders and fries, but they were delicious! The fries were dreamy!

Surprise refuge in Union Square
Granted I had an early dinner on a Sunday so. It may have been much quieter than usual. But it's a pretty, airy space with very simple and elegant decor. Food is delicious and waitstaff attentive and friendly. Worth repeating!
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
My party of three had lunch at Le Midi on Monday, July 29th, and we had the entire restaurant to ourselves. The restaurant was exceptionally clean, nicely appointed, and the service was outstanding. We ordered from the prix fixe menu and were wonderfully impressed by the size of the portions, price, plating, and taste of our meal. For starters, we had the baby lettuce salad; for main course, coq au vin and steak frites; for dessert, sorbet. The noise level was quiet which was great for conversations. We plan on returning and would highly recommend this hidden gem for French cooking to everyone for lunch. I can't assess dinner.

Great w/groups, relaxed environment
Went Sat, 8/10 with a large party including 2 small children. Our server/host was great with the kids, and he handled our table perfectly. To start, several people in our party were almost 45 mins late due to unexpected traffic and the atmosphere was so relaxed that it didn't matter - we just had drinks at our table until the rest of our party arrived. It was brunch so some people had eggs and spoke very highly of them. I had grilled salmon which I enjoyed The mussels and burgers were also a hit. Mostly we were happy with the relaxed environment and the friendly service.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely French Dining
I had a Living Social thing for mussels, fries and wine at this very cute establishment. The food was pretty delicious as was the wine. The service was friendly, but I think the waiter may have forgotten about us at the end (we decided not to have dessert there because we had other plans and time was getting late). But I would go back for sure.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
When the owner opens up his private stock of rare Belgian beer for your husband, while you are being greeted by name with hugs from the adorable French bartender, what could be better than that!?!? Oh yes, let's not forget the expertly prepared and served French food. Yes, those are our experiences at Le Midi. And the fact that it's so centrally located smack dab in the middle of the prettiest neighborhood in Greenwich Village. Yes, that's the full package!
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Quiet Room, Very Attentive Service
A great setting for a business lunch. Prix fixe is very reasonable. Food was quite tasty.

Close to greatness
First, the most important thing: the food is extremely good - bistro basics, well-prepared and delicious. The weakness here was slightly confused servers who didn't seem to have any solid direction from management, and an ambience that just falls short. All this restaurant needs is someone who has a lot of experience training and directing the wait staff with a degree of discipline, and maybe a little colorful paint and some interior props to bring the room to life. The beige-grey upper walls and brown ceiling look nice and new, but they're boring. Maybe a little French blue and something mounted on the wall or hung from the ceiling that reminds us of the South of France would make us feel like we were really in "le Midi."

Really good food at fair prices (I kid you not). Adult oriented restaurant that gives customers a good value proposition.

We had an very pleasant lunch. Coq au vin was the real deal and we felt well taken care of. Will definitely return.

Awesome friendly fabulous place
We have a surprise birthday party in Le Midi, and it's the best for overall experience. There were mostly first timers beside myself. Everyone was impressed with the ambiance, close to the neighborhood, food were excellent and what a friendly services! I would recommend Le Midi to my friends! Keep up the good job Le Midi!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
A neighborhood French place
We would like this to become our neighborhood French place. We enjoyed our dinner and would definitely recommend the coq au vin. Good value for both the food and wine. The atmosphere is relaxed and the tables are well spaced for comfort and conversation. The greeter was friendly, and Teddy, the waitperson, was charming, attentive, and helpful. We are hopeful this will catch on as an inviting neighborhood spot for locals.

A great find
Found this restaurant through Scoutmob. After reading about it in a few places i decided to give it a shot. I'm glad I did. The food was great and the service was ever better. The staff were attentive and polite but never interfered with the dinner. I will definitely be back.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Brunch was very good!
I had the steak frites and shared it with our 2 year old. My husband had the tuna nicoise. The dishes were empty were quickly. The steak was medium rare and the french fries were very good--thin and crispy. We'll be back next time we're in that area.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a variety of dishes with my party of 3. Everything was very good. Only complaint was the duck was slightly undercooked and a bit fatty. Risotto was delicious, desserts yummy. Would definitely recommend this restaurant,

Le Midi Bar
This is a pleasant French bistro which serves good bistro food. It is not outstanding but if you are looking for a pleasant quiet place which serves well-cooked and served food in this neighborhood, you can't go far wrong with Le Midi Bar & Restaurant.

Nice resto near Union Square. Pleasant surroundings, very nice staff. Good menu, Food not great but works well for lunch.

My third visit and in contrast to the earlier ones the noise level was fine, but would suggest an early reservation. The food and service are terrific and the early prix fixe a real bargain.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Superb! Looking forward to our next visit to Le Midi.

What a great treat to have a wonderful meal before a show! Food was done perfectly, had the soup du jour and risotto special. Great wine, generous portions, good service and a lovely, cozy ambiance! We can't wait to go back!
