Excellent food. Expensive Parking.
Food very delicious. Beautiful food presentation. A bit expensive. Quiet...so you can speak. Waiters are a bit too ready to clear dishes. $15 to park at hotel where restaurant is located with validation.

surprisingly good. salads, sole and salmon entrees all tasty & not overly rich. but best part was we asked for a few cookies for dessert (not on the menu) and they baked us 3 fresh cookies. awesome customer service!

Four of us were at Miel Friday
Four of us were at Miel Friday night for restaurant week. They had a decent restaurant week selection compare to some of the other French restaurants. Everything was delicious, with the exception of the short ribs, which was a bit salty. We were offered wine pairings with each course for $15, which was a great price for getting to try 3 different wines. The wines were also expertly paired and went perfectly with the food! Even though it was 9pm on a Friday night on restaurant week, the place was relatively quiet offering us plenty of privacy and a lot of space between tables. It was definitely intentional, as we saw a group being turned away as we were arriving. Overall it was a great experience and I would go therea again!

Nice spot in Boston
Being my first time I can only revirew a lunch experience. 4of us dined on 3 different entrees
Cobb salad was what u woud expect, skad nicotine was not much if a salad but merely a nice piece of rare tuna top a bit if lettuce, the third was the lobster roll which was very much enjoyed by my friend. One dessert of Tarte Tatin was very good
Overall it was a nice experience and I will return when outdoor dining is available as I think the location would be very pleasant as you overlook Firt Point Chnnel and are sheltered from any car traffic.

Wonderful dinner. Food was excellent!! View could have been better positioning tables differently and eliminating some draperies. Service was very good. Staff were pleasant and attentive. Definitely would return to this restaurant.

Excellent Food and Service!
This was my first time at Miel. It is located within the Intercontinental Hotel.
Outstanding food, service and view.
This applies not only to Miel, but the rest of the Intercontinental's main lobby. It is somewhat plain and uninspiring. I'm not sure what I expected when I arrived but the design is not well though out. The opulence I thought I'd see was replaced with a mediocre design that made me think a well intentioned general contractor did the job without any help from design consultants.

French food lovers
We tried Miel during restaurant week and were extremely surprised! Loved the soup and scallop appetizers. Entres lamb and short rib were phenomenal! We weren't too keen with the desserts, which shocked us since this was a French restaurant. Would definitely come back though and perhaps try dessert on the regular menu.

We went to Miel to celebrate
We went to Miel to celebrate my retirement, which we noted when making the reservation. We were seated at a window table with with a nice view of the water, and I received a complementary glass of champagne in honor of the event.
We both ordered the seared scallop/parsnip puree appetizer, and also the braised short rib entree, both of which were very well prepared and presented. The service was attentive, but dinner was a little too quickly paced. We had barely had a chance to sample the bread and olive tapenade, when the appetizers arrived, and the entrees followed too quickly after the appetizer course. We also both ordered the chocolate crepe for dessert, which was also good.
Overall a good dining experience; just need better p

Was very enjoyable! FYI the chairs where oversized and hard we needed to ask for cushions for comfort and to reach the table with ease.

First time here - I will definitely be back. Service was top notch. Food was better than I expected. Would absolutely recommend the restaurant for lunch.

The food and service were great, we are looking forward to going back.

Limited time makes a good find
We were hard pressed for time and needed a quick meal. This was that. For me, nothing 'earth-shattering" but good just the same.

Good Food with a Nice View
The food was very good and it is a good location. The decor could use a total overhaul - it looks it has not been done in a long time. We had the steak frites and the lobster orzo pasta, both of which were excellent.
5/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a very good time at Miel.
The decor is beautiful.
This restaurant is the only place in Boston, where I felt I was having dinner somewhere warm, perhaps even Mediterranean.
The food was good, as well as the service.
We will be back.

Very Elegant and Romantic
Already a very fancy, but not over the top restaurant, if you come here on a nice day you can sit outside and have a beautiful waterfront view. The food is excellent and drink and wine list expansive. An excellent place to go for a date or special occasion.

Paul was exceptional for us
We would like like to say what a delightful evening we had at Miel.
The table set up outside when we arrived was perfect.
Our server/host Paul was wonderful. Paul catered to our every need and anticipated questions as well. Paul's gracious hospitality and professionalism made our evening complete and we shall certainly return to Miel and recommend it to our friends and family.

Good Night Out
Great food, our waiters were very attentive. Wine list a little overpriced, but worth paying for the view and people watching. Large number of outside seating, so plenty of table options.

Just a great experience with
Just a great experience with very professional wait staff and overall excellent service. The menu has many terrific choices and the food comes out cooked perfectly. There is a large selection of wines and they are very fairly priced..great value for the price. The outdoor seating is a real bonus and there is a high energy level to the restaurant and bar area. Definitely going back as Miel is on my top 10 Boston restaurants.

Gir'ls night out
What a wonderful location and ambiance. Boston certainly has many choices when it comes to waterfront dining; and Miel has to be one of the best. We had wonderful food, service and people watching. It's not inexpensive, but worth the $$$$ for a lovely and tasty experience. Everything we had was delicious, but special kudos to the chef for the clam chowder. Probably the best I have ever had, and being from Massachusetts, I have had lots and lots of chowder.

Another great meal at Miel!
My family and I went to celebrate my Mom's birthday at Miel, which is her favorite place to eat. They have changed the configuration of the dining room, making it smaller and adding a bar. I think this is a great idea and makes the dining room more intimate. Service and food were perfect, as always. Since it was a beautiful day, most diners chose to eat outside, giving us more space inside. My Mom was thrilled with her celebration and I'm sure we will be back again soon!
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very considerate service
We went to Miel to celebrate a long time marriage anniversary and they acknowledged our anniversary with thoughtful treats.

An authentic French restaurant
Onion soup is delicious. Has the Steak Frites which was only seasoned with salth and pepper with onions, and it was so delicious. Very hard to make a perfect steak with such minimal ingredients. My dinner guest commented how the fries didn't overwhelm the plate and each piece of fry was perfectly cooked. Finally the 'chef's choice' of dessert included a sample of cheese cakes, ice cream, chocolate pudding, and creme' brulee. They were all deliciously made. -- Love this restaurant's food, decor, and ambiance.

this is such a great, romantic place. I took my husband there for his birthday. the atmosphere is great, and the staff is very attentive.

Oh whata night
Beautiful evening dinner outside with very good food and a waiter who was very helpful with the wine selection. We will be back and back. Thanks

peaceful and beautiful view
Miel is always good and has excellent service. The best thing is that it is quiet enough inside to actually speak to your dining companions and to be able to hear them.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed our meal here, largely because it was peaceful, as opposed to most of the hotspots in the Seaport district. We sat outside, had good service, and the food was good, although I would not not say excellent, considering that it was quite expensive. Bread and olive tapenade were delicious. Our group had raviolis, cod, and tartine, and cucumber soup, all were fine.The lavender and candied olive ice cream was very odd, I would not recommend.
We live in the neighborhood and agreed that we would return, because it was so pleasant. Most of the restaurants in the neighborhood are so crowded and noisy that we do not really enjoy going.

Great food, service could be faster
Love going here for brunch on special occasions. Food and ambience are excellent. Service could be improved a bit.

Appetizers: Beet Carpaccio
Appetizers: Beet Carpaccio plentiful and delicious. red beets with watercress, candied pecans and goat cheese. Cesar Salad served with endive. Dressing was perfection; surprisingly large portion. Scallop ceviche was OK. Entrees: Duck Marget; tender, juicy served with celeriac puree. Well prepared. Flank Steak (Bavette) with pomes frittes. Steak was made correctly; fries came with the ubiquitous truffle oil. ravioli stuffed with sweet peas and ricotta cheese. All a little over done...tad dry. Dessert: Seasonal Berry Soup and raspberry creme broule. Solid, not spectacular.
Wine list was well varied; many price point choices.
Service was outstanding. Room was attractive. Wonderful view of Fort Point Channel; outdoor seating if desired.

Lovely summer dining!
Miel's outdoor space is beautiful, and a "must-go" spot during the summer. Service was attentive and food delicious!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved the food!
We went there for our date night this week during Restaurant Week. We absolutely loved the food, especially the Honey Glazed Duck Magret! The place was nice and romantic, service was excellent and the servers were very polite. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was great. Our service
Food was great. Our service was slow at best. First, was the bar was not set up over 45 minutes after the brunch open for service. Then they were out of the prosecoo listed on the menu. Next was the slow service and incorrect order. I would understand this if they were busy, but they were not. Did I mention grat food. I am not asking for anything other than the service issue to be addressed and corrected.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful Food, Superb Service
Miel served up some exquisite French cuisine in the midst of lovely country french decor. The service was unmatched - could not recommend this place more highly. Perfect date spot and for foodies who love french dishes and wine.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We could not have asked for a better anniversary dinner! The staff had flowers waiting at the table for me and surprised us with dessert. They offered to take our picture and were attentive to our needs the entire time. Will definitely return, the food and atmosphere were amazing!

Just Love It here...
We have dined here a number of times. We love the simple flavors; the service and especially enjoyed dining on the patio while there was a full moon. 3 of us had the roasted chicken with mustard sauce - it is my favorite and the flavors are just exceptional. My finance had shrimp with orzo and peas...he said it was fantastic - and it looked it. The wine list is nice and you can always find reasonably priced bottles to share. We so enjoy it here!

The wait staff made the difference!
My husband and I were staying at the Intercontinental Boston and decided to try Miel. It wasn't very busy so we enjoyed a quiet window table with almost no one else around us. We were waited on by Paul who took the time to explain menu items and make recommendations. Overall, the food was flavorful without being too artistic or edgy, with generous portions. We had fun because it was quiet and we were well-served. I would return if I stay again at the IC.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Hi, I'd like to see more variety of choices on the menu.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
I took my Mom here and my brothers girlfriend for a birthday lunch for my Mom. We loved it! The staff was so sweet and attentive, the decor was absolutely beautiful and the view was perfect. All of our meals were great as well as side dishes...I would go back here anytime! The Intercontinental Hotel is also a beautiful setting to spend time just hanging out.

One of the best meals we've had in a long time. Atmosphere and service was perfect.
