Absolutely loved it here and the wait staff was very friendly. We were the last people to leave and I felt no rush what so ever.
This is our second visit after Dine Out Boston. The foods and services were very good. Lamb tartare and foie gras terrine with strawberry were exquisite. Highly recommend.
Staff go out there way to be sure that you are happy
Beautiful location right across from the Boston Public Garden. The waiter was attentive, but not too fussy. The food was spectacular and the wine was perfect! It was a great start to my trip to Boston!
We sat in the upstairs dining room. The room attractive was attractive with a nice view of the Public Garden. Food was great. The bread and olive oil at the beginning was outstanding. Very attentive service. A very nice dining experience. Will definitely go back at some point and would recommend to friends.
Fabulous experience - the tasting menu and wine tasting were wonderful! Service was excellent!
Thank you so much Lesley, I'm glad to read about your satisfaction! I'm looking forward to seeing you here again! - Federico
Food and service were excellent. We started with the Old Frenchman cocktail which was perfect. The Spring Garlic soup and Bkack Pepper Tagliatelle w/Lobster appetizers were nicely prepared and delicious. For entrees, we chose the Black Sea Bass and the Duck Breast w/cherries, kale, and turnips, which were fantastic. This was probably our 5th time dining here, and again, they met our expectations and didn't miss a beat.
Thank you very much peabodyfoodie, I'm so glad to read your review! Please, ask for me next time you'll be in, since I would like to take care of you and your guests personally. My best - Federico

Everything was incredible. Food was spectacular - had the oyster selection and tagliatelle to start. Filet and the bouillabaisse for entrees. Server was ON POINT.
Thank you so much for the nice review! I'm glad you had a good time and we am looking forward to hosting you soon again. Best, Federico
Fantastic experience. Very polite staff and great atmosphere!
Yay!!! Thank you ChineduA! We are looking forward to hosting you soon again! :)
Great fish dishes topped with immaculate service and cosy atmosphere. Highly recommended!
Thank you so much!! :)
An old school Restaurant where tables are placed far from each other. The service was attentive and kind. Good food but not extraordinary. Good Wine selection.
Hello ACCardoso, Thank you for your review! I'm glad you enjoyed your time at Bistro du Midi, although I'm sorry that the food didn't quite blow your mind. Please, reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org... next time you'll be in, as I would love to go over some of my favorite dishes together! Best - Federico
Superb! Very delicious.
Took long time to get our lunch. When we did the chicken was cold. It took again in a long time to get another plate of chicken which was somewhat dry because it was reheated. .
I'm so sorry to read your disappointment. It shouldn't be that difficult to get quick service and good food. We are usually much better and I would like to win you back. Please, reach out to me at your convenience at the restaurant at 617-426-7878 or via email at email@example.com... as I would like to make it up to you. Best, Federico Salvador
Tasting menu is exquisite!
Fabulous everything however, some very loud people next to us, but what a meal....back soon!
Hi Bits, Thank you for the five star review! I hope to see you soon again... for a quieter evening! ;) - Federico
This was one of the best meals we've had in a long time! The service was fantastic, and so was the wine and food.
My husband and I split oysters a primi pasta dish (pepper tagliatelle with lobster) to start. The pasta was perfect, I highly recommend it.
I had sea bass with pork belly and peas, and my husband had the filet mignon. Both our dishes were great.
We ordered wine by the glass. They didn't have extensive glass options, but enough variety so you could get what you wanted. And of course plenty of bottles to choose from if you want to go that route.
I would definitely recommend and go back!
Thank you ChristinaK, I'm so glad to read that you and your husband had a great time and enjoyed your meal! I'm looking forward to hosting you soon again - Federico
Had the tasting menu which was well paced. Good service. Generous serving of wine with the wine paring. Unfortunately sat beside a sliding door that was constantly being opened and closed.
Hello, Thank you very much for the five star review! I'm sorry about the sliding door: I understand how distracting and annoying that would be. Please, make sure to mention that if you'd like to come back and I will have one of our best tables ready for you! You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org... - Federico
The food was really exceptional. We ordered the polenta fries and frisse salad and found them both to be very tasty. The roast chicken was excellent and the ribeye was perfect. We were surprised at the quality of the steak in comparison to the other highly regarded steaks in town. B du M's steak was better than the others. Only negative was a slightly weak cocktail, but the bartender was delightful and engaging.
Hello KeriS, Thank you very much for the nice review! I'm glad you enjoyed the food although I'm sorry if the drinks didn't quite make it for you. I hope to see you again soon - Best, Federico
Four of us went for dinner. Three dinners were inedible due to spoiled seafood. To their credit the management did not charge for these dinners, so we passed on those funds as a tip.
Hello Mike, I'm so sorry to read your review, and most importantly, that you did not have a good experience with us. I would love to make up for it. Please, reach out to me at your convenience here at the restaurant at 617-426-7878 or at email@example.com... My best - Federico
Very good French restaurant, we are French living in Florida, we are very critical of the french cuisine, the bouillabaisse was excellent , the chocolate soufflés like we expected, the view on the common park beautiful ! We had a nice evening.
Merci SabineP, It is very nice to hear that from someone who knows French cuisine very well! Hopefully we will see you next time you'll get to Boston! - Best, Federico
Wanted a drink before dinner and bar at the Taj was closed for renovation. Downstairs bar here turned out to be a terrific, elegant place with good service & great view of the Common, especially in good weather when doors facing street are fully open. Lighter fare than upstairs main dining available.
Dinner upstairs was excellent and if your table is near windows, view is great here too.
Friendly service appropriate for a high-end bistro (near, but not ultra polished, formal multiple servers if that's important for the occasion).
Very fresh ingredients in perfectly balanced Bouillabaisse; perfectly cooked filet (larger than I expected). I will definitely go back.
Hello Rouxbidoo and thank you for the nice review! I'm glad you had a good experience at Bistro du Midi and I'm looking forward to seeing you again. My best - Federico
Very good value, excellent food, but surprisingly loud later at night
Thank you for the nice five star review, VadimT! Busy nights can get loud, although you can usually enjoy a quieter atmosphere during week days. I hope to see you soon again! - Federico
food was great. Staff was friendly. Like foie gra and duck breast. Dessert is outstanding. Definitely recommended
Thank you for the nice five star review! :)
Outstanding food and service. What a hidden gem! We will definitely be back soon.
Thank you so much! We are glad you enjoyed your experience at Bistro du Midi. We are looking forward to seeing you soon!
Excellent experience - we had the tasting menu and all the food was excellent. Will be back to try the summer tasting menu.
Hello ChrisR and thank you for the nice review. Our summer tasting menu should be available by the end of June. We are looking forward to seeing you soon!
Amazing place, delicious food, lovely ambiance, diversified wine list and menu, and a great service. The sommelier was very knowledgeable. Perfect for a business dinner or a romantic evening.
The food was excellent. I was there twice in the same week, once for lunch and once for dinner. The service at lunch was excellent. At dinner, it could have been more polished, the server often reaching over to serve, rather than going around and serving from the proper side.
Thank you msGS for the nice review and your feedback. We will definitely be working on improving that aspect. I'm looking forward to seeing you again soon. My best - Federico
Very nice business lunch. Solid menu. Excellent soft shell crab.
Thank you jkl1!
Very good food and great service, however very slow since the place was very full and it was hard to talk with our colleagues.
Hello RoxanaR, Thank you for the five star review! It must have been a very busy day. I hope to see you soon again. Now that the weather is improving we will most likely serve lunch and dinner daily on our patio, which offers a quieter dining option. Best - Federico
The softshell crab was excellent. the white asparagus served with the rhubarb sauce was creative and tasty. The halibut and the bass were excellent. The service was attentive and helpful to guide us through a delightful evening.
Thank you so much billchin for such a nice review. We are looking forward to seeing you soon.
Every dish was prepared to perfection. The service was attentive, and got us on our way to the ballet on time. This is our favorite restaurant.
Thank you roundtable, I'm very happy to read your nice review! We are looking forward to seeing you soon. - Federico
My lunch companion started with the garlic soup which was hearty, rich and delicious. They also were happy to parse out some of it for me to try free of charge since it was sizable portion. I also enjoyed the flavors and presentation of the Lamb TarTare.
My companion had the salmon as their entre for lunch which was very well prepared and the accouchements on the plate were decident. I had the soft shell crab sandwich and this a bit of a dissapointment. I understand this is a delicate and smaller size portion. But this was an especially small crab and the bun was enormous. It was served with fries which were very good. I love soft shell crab but would never order this dish there again. The server was pleasant but I asked about the sandwich and they did not make mention of the portion.
Good afternoon ABCD and thank you for the review and the feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed the food but I'm sorry you weren't satisfied with the soft shell crab sandwich. I hope to see you soon again as I believe you will be able to find other good options on our menu. My best - Federico
Bistro Ddu Midi never disappoints. We have been a number of times and it's always great!
Thank you AnitaC! :)
Local beacon hill resident- just overall in love with the location and food,
Thank you very much... It's nice to be in love! :)
It is a very pretty room but that was the highlight. I was there for Mother’s Day dinner with my husband and daughter. Our appetizers were ok, mine was actually quite good. It was the garlic soup. The meal fell apart at the entrees. My duck ravioli was awful. The pasta was very hard and crusty at the edges, as if it was very old or had been reheated one too many times. I would’ve sent it back but you know how your children hate it when you complain🤷♀️ My daughter’s bouillabaisse had a very unappealing fishy smell and taste. Neither one of us ate our dinners. Also when food came to the table the servers stood there and asked who ordered what. That should never happen at a good restaurant. Service was quite slow. It was a real disappointment and we won’t be back nor would we recommend it.
Hello Fridaynightlights, I'm very sorry to understand that your evening didn't go well. I am not sure what went wrong with the food, but usually our lamb ravioli are quite tasty and the pasta is perfectly cooked and the Bouillabaisse is our signature dish. I wish you would have told us: we would have immediately exchanged those dishes for you. Please, reach out to me at 617-426-7878 or firstname.lastname@example.org... since I would like to hear more about it and make it up to you. Best - Federico
Atrocious service, mediocre food at best. I’ve given this place a few chances at different meal times in hopes that I’d change my mind, but every time I’m disappointed.
Hello Anonymous, I'm very sorry to hear that you never had a good experience at Bistro du Midi. I would love to take care of you personally, if you are willing to give us another chance. I feel like we can definitely win you back! Please, give me a call at your convenience here at the restaurant at 617-426-7878 or reach out to me via email at email@example.com... : I would like to hear more about it and see what we can do to improve your experience at BdM. My best - Federico Salvador
I found the restaurant welcoming, and the staff was very attentive and provided excellent service, however the food was bland, I ordered the Bouillabaise and found the sauce rather tasteless. My wife ordered the Halibut and although it was perfectly cooked it also didn't have the wow factor that the sticker price demanded. I found the restaurant overall very pricey for the food they served. Will try again but too many choices to try before going back.
