The food was amazing and we had a great time. I did feel that the wait staff kept coming to our table too much almost like they were rushing our table especially since we spend good money to eat there.
Eggs Benedict were overcooked, yolk was almost hard, and that's not the first time at this restaurant. Yummy ricotta pancakes
This place is mediocre at best. Wife and i had high hopes for it while looking at the menu and pictures.
Hostess sat down a couple that had arrived after us after she clearly saw that we were there first.
The person that ended up seating us noticed the table was not leveled, tried for a second to do something about it and never came back to fix it.
Drinks were great.
Food in general was tasteless and nothing special. Bertucci's or even Wendys would have been a better food experience. Our waitress was amazing. Cant say the same about the food runners.
At last the strawberry Suffle was too sweet and I don't think you are supposed to crunch the sugar with your teeth as you are eating it.
I am not sure how this place has this great reviews but it was far from it last night. Look else where for a better experience.
Food and service were great! We got the wagyu, cod and duck and the chocolate soufflé. Duck was our favorite. Kayla was very helpful in helping us choose the best drinks to pair with our meal.
The ambience is great and so was the service. My waiter was outstanding. The biggest disappointment was the food. It didn’t live up to the hype. We ordered the salmon and the chicken with risotto. The salmon dish was overall bland. The squash sauce didn’t help at all and the fish was undercooked in the middle. The chicken was properly cooked but the risotto was mushy and somehow undercooked as part of it was crunchy. For the price it was not worthy. The only thing that saved the meal were the side of fries, I’m ashamed to admit. They were crispy and hot and well-seasoned, and they came with a nice smoky sauce. We were planning on trying out the desert menu, but after that meal we just wanted to leave and go somewhere else.
Staffing issue. One waiter for a million tables. Great guy but our lunch took 21/2 hrs and I felt terrible for my guests—one of whom had to leave midway.
I have been to Bistro du Midi several times, and I know the prices are through the roof; and I go there knowing that; but this time it seemed to have lost its edge. Chalk it up, perhaps, to Monday night malaise. The servings felt a little more diminutive, the pommes puree tasted like salted cream of wheat, the carrot soup was not hot, the cranberry sorbet was so sweet as to be inedible. Yet the service was excellent, and it's a friendly place to visit, exorbitant prices notwithstanding. I'm not giving up, by any means. I would recommend it to a friend for very special occasions only -- though maybe not on a Monday night.
One of our favorite restaurants in Boston. Wonderful food, drinks, service and ambiance. A must while visiting or living in Boston.
Wonderful French cuisine in a lovely room with 1st class service.
We enjoyed lunch for my best friend’s birthday. Comfortably seated at the window, we had a lovely view of the Common. We ordered 2 delicious cocktails and split the beet salad to begin. Both the drinks and the salads were excellent. We ordered the Salmon Eggs Benedict and the Feta and Spinach omelette with spicy frites. Both entrees were presented with much attention to detail. We ended our meal with one of the most delicious desserts ever, a hazelnut mousse! Our lattes completed the meal! Excellent, start to finish- a very memorable birthday celebration!
Very good service, the waiter was very nice and considerate and recommended the chocolate shuffle and suggested to order ahead because it takes time to prepare.
The file mignon was excellent also the hamburger
Honestly it was disappointing experience, this is the first we went for a thanksgiving dinner to a restaurant, kinda went in without any expectation. The seating was uncomfortable to begin to with since we got a remote corner table that did not have bare minimum space to even set up my coat.
Bread for the table was served right a second before the appetizer was served - didn’t make any sense to have it anymore. Appetizer was good. I ordered the duck breast and it had way too many textures that didn’t go with each other. The server was too excited to take my plate away and serve the next dish without even me fully finishing my dish.
All in all I don’t think the food nor the service was worth it. The front desk staff were very nice and sweet
Exceeded our expectations! Tables were spaced appropriately, great space, beautiful view.
Nice for sharing thanksgiving with relatives
We went for Thanksgiving and the menu was great . I am vegetarian and they had a great option . All the dishes were delicious and beautiful plated. The service was really good and all the waiters very nice and efficient . This was our first time there on a Holiday and we were impressed . The only little miss for us were the cold and not so fresh bread rolls .
Thanksgiving dinner was spectacular. The food and ambiance were great for celebrating a holiday away from home. 100% will return.
Came in for thanksgiving with 2 other guests. Everything took extremely long. Our server was also the bartender for downstairs, so it’s understandable but the restaurant is clearly understaffed; shame on the company for over-demanding and under serving, clearly they’re just looking to make money and don’t give a crap about their guests’ experience. We started with a dozen oysters, which came with our hot apps, at 3.50 each, they least the kitchen could have done and was pay attention to coursing things appropriately. Towards the end of my meal a manager came over and abruptly cleared the table, I asked if we could order a round of shots and he was very abrasive. Not sure if they were trying to turn the table but we spent almost $1000 on a meal, the least they can do is not act as if we were inconveniencing them.
The food was fine but there are better places to dine in Boston.
I recently learned my lesson about rating dining experiences "outstanding". When one does this and then they experience something that truly is outstanding they are now short on superlatives. Such was my experience at Bistro du Midi......I took my family here for Thanksgiving and it was perfect. The dining room, the service, the food, all perfect. If I were to stretch to find anything I could complain about.....still nothing. I'm sure I've never written this before and out of respect for this experience I will never write it again.
Had the prix fixe w wine pairing for Thanksgiving. Delicious!
Beautiful anniversary dinner. Everything was perfect.
Excellent lunch as usual. Eating in main floor level - a little too chilly!
My girlfriend and I went on a Monday night for our anniversary. Absolutely terrific, one of the best meals I’ve ever had. The oysters are very good, definitely try the tomato and ricotta tortellini as well. We shared the Ribeye and it was excellent. Definitely finish off the meal with the flourless chocolate torte and a coffee. The service was great, the restaurant itself is very pretty—overall an excellent experience.
We love this restaurant, the chicken was not as good as it usually is however, the tuna tartare was amazing …as usual
The eggs of the omelets were tough and rubbery and reminded us of fake egg products used by fast food restaurants. Very disappointing as the real French way of making eggs for an omelet is delicious. Bistro du Midi should do better.
Everything was excellent. I have no complaints or issues to report.
The upper floor has excellent ambience… We thought the service was good but waited a bit at one point. The food is always excellent… They are known for mussels and the chicken. We enjoyed the diversity of the drink menu and overall had a fabulous night.
We came for my husband’s 40th birthday — 6 people total. Location and atmosphere were great, and the food was really good, but the service was completely off. We waited forever every time we ordered a drink and when I got up from the table to discreetly ask if they could please put a candle in the dessert to celebrate they brought all the desserts without any candles and when I got up to ask what happened they sent the waiter over to ask my husband whether or not he wanted a candle after all the dessert was brought and the jig was up! It would have been easy to remedy the forgetfulness by bringing another dessert with a candle (on the house) or apologizing or comping any of our desserts but none of that happened so the night ended on a really disappointing, deflated, and completely botched note.
Having missed my special birthday dinner last year because of the pandemic, I was wishing for my favorite birthday dinner of tagliatelle with mushrooms and white truffles; I was not disappointed. My husband and I split an entrée-sized portion of this as our first course, and followed it with seafood: monkfish, which was delicious, and cod, which was, regrettably, a bit bland. We enjoyed glasses of several different wines with our two courses, with our server Mario providing excellent suggestions. Service was excellent throughout our meal.
Excellent night in a fabulous restaurant … well done to all 🥂🥂
Great dinner! Food has good looking
Beautiful establishment, wonderful staff, top notch cocktails, and delicious food. Highly recommend!
The restaurant was beautiful. We sat upstairs in the dining roomAnd there was plenty of space between the tables. Our waiter was very attentive, friendly and helpful with my husband’s questions on the menu. I have celiac disease and they were very careful with my food explaining that it was gluten-free before they placed it in front of me. And the water glasses were constantly full and the food presentation was beautiful. I had the beet salad and the duck and both were delicious! My husband had the ribeye and he said that was also cooked to perfection. I did have the flourless chocolate tort for dessert. It was a perfect evening.
Person next to us was so loud it made it had to ear. It was half way through the meal so we didn’t ask to move.
We had the worst service ever Ignored by the waiter, wrong bill, etc
I had a reservation for 1 at a table. When I walked in, the bar was fairly empty so I chose to sit there. Unfortunately, the bar immediately filled up and I was squeezed in. No hook for bags and my jacket kept sliding off the chair. Other than that, fantastic service, great eggs Benedict, and a fun atmosphere! Will definitely go back.
Service needs to be more professional
My wife and I dined at Bistro du MIDI. The restaurant is not nearly as good as it’s prices are high. My wife’s duck was fairly good. But the fish course was poor. Cod was substituted for halibut, and the cod was over cooked. The plate’s lobster foam was in distinct and did not offer any flavor accompaniment.
The wine list escalates in price very quickly - a $60 retail bottle of white burgundy that is listed a $170 on the menu. The pour of Sauternes was minuscule.
The food was OK but nothing special. It was a bit loud.
Seemed understaffed. Very slow service. Food was not good. Must be short of qualified cooks also. Chairs in the bistro filthy. Not coming back.
