Bistro du Midi's cuisine features French Cuisine inspired by Coastal New England influences. Our wine list represents the true soul of a bistro wine list. In a classic French bistro, wine is very much a part of every meal. As such, we offer a variety of experiences and wines at a tremendous value in a range of prices. Our elegant yet relaxed environment overlooks Boston's beautiful Public Garden with a spectacular view. A street level Bistro features floor-to-ceiling windows, and in the spring and summer our patio provides some of the most optimal al fresco dining in the city.

    Have returned several times for soufflé—passion fruit and grand marnier are delicious!

    Service was outstanding as usual. The food we had Tuna and Salad as well as Duck and Halibut were delicious. Wine by the glass good and good prices. Only problem - it was Very cold! We had to move to different table and then it got Cold again. They said they changed A/C temp but it was not fun eating in a COOL breeze.

    Jose was wonderful. I’ve been a waiter at fine restaurants and Jose was absolutely on point, making the experience terrific.

    My two friends and I went to celebrate our birthdays. Their food was good, not great, but good. Unfortunately, my Bouillabaisse was quite the opposite. Disappointingly, the halibut, shrimp and lobster were overcooked. The server took it back to the chef who agreed. They brought me new halibut and shrimp which were cooked well, and there was a scallop, which was not in my first order. The first order had half a lobster tail and a claw, which were inedible. The second order contained an extremely small piece of lobster, which did not have any meat to speak of. In addition, the broth was so salty that I could not enjoy dunking my bread. The server comped us two desserts, which we appreciated. The service was excellent, but the food did not match in taste. I've never written a food review, but thought it important to share my thoughts. Thank you.

    I love Bistro du Midi! It’s just around the corner from where I live and my husband and I often eat there in the downstairs bistro. The lighting is perfect and the food is amazing! The outside tables are romantic, on a beautiful night, because they overlook the Public Garden and make feel like you’re really in Paris!

    Hello Lorie- Thank you for the five-star review! We look forward to seeing you again soon!

    We did the tasting menu. Two of the dishes were off in flavor. Spoiled? The wines were very good except for one. They did give us a discount on the price and some extra wine. Service was good. For the price I expected much better.

    Father's Day dinner was disappointing. Nice decor, wine list was substantial, settled on a pinot noir that was great. Entrees were ok, filet and rib eye done nicely but lacked any sort of presentation, the duck was awful, too salty and poor presentation, Halibut was nice but again lacked any presentation. Service was good, but not always available, but we were able to send the duck back in place for a filet, so we all had an entree to eat. Our party of 5 spent near $900 and not impressed. I would not go back since the price was not reflected in the presentation of any of the entrees, desserts were not impressive either; the chocolate souffle was really a lava cake not a true souffle, passionfruit sorbet was good but again the price should be reflected in the presentation if nothing else. No imagination nor true skill to set it apart from another restaurant. they need to train their kitchen staff with a flair for love of food or just not worth the price.

    The food itself was alright for the price. Duck breast and lobster were a bit cold but the tuna tartare was refreshing. Waiters were decently welcoming, nice atmosphere, not too loud.
