The food was good, however for the amount you pay for the meal you would think you would get vegetables with it. This is not a steakhouse where you would expect something like that!
Very nice experience for brunch on Sunday. The decor is very nice, nice space between tables upstairs, excellent service, and nice choices for brunch. Omelettes were very tasty, and eggs Benedict nicely presented, flatbread pizza also very tasty. Would recommend for a slightly more upscale brunch brunch in an elegant setting, with reasonable prices.
Wonderful food, excellent service. Nicely spaced tables. Felt safe.
Service good but not spot on, could be slightly improved. BOCH center website says ticket/show patrons will get 15% discount at this location, but not true; server said no longer.
FOOD was AMAZING however.
Exquisite service- wonderful food- elegant surroundings. What could be better?
What a disappointment... We were 6 people and had a dinner there for a family celebration. The place was very nice and welcoming and most of the staff were ok. The main issue was that we ordered two filet mignon and both dishes came way overcooked (I ordered MR and got it extremally WD). They kind of apologized and took it back but then it took them over 20 minutes to bring out the new ones. During this time they didn't bothered to come and update us that it's will take so long and offer something else in the meantime. Needless to say that the other four already finished their main course before we got ours. On top of that the staff barely apologized for the mistake and the delay and didn't offer any kind compensation for this. In general I think the food was just OK, wasn't impressed at all and definitely been to much better restaurants in my life.
food was good, but not great. Service was very slow. Dining room was quite noisy.
Bistro du Midi seemed to be short staffed today, so the service was extremely slow. Took quite some time for a server to take our order and a long time to receive our meals.
We have been to Bistro du Midi before and loved the atmosphere, food, and high quality service. The servers today worked hard but there were not enough around to take care of a full restaurant.
I really enjoyed Bistro du Midi. Food was very good. Lucked out as it was a beautiful nights so our table was partially indoors/outdoors. Great attentive service. Highly recommend.
Ambiance was great. Drinks were delicious. Was very disappointed that the online menu had items that were not on the Menu in person. I also felt the flavor of food was not up to par with the prices.
Enjoyed our meal. Went on a Saturday afternoon and the only menu available was the Brunch Menu. They should offer a wider selection. Prices are a bit high, but they are located directly across from Boston Common, so taking advantage of that location.
Hi Bill, I am glad you enjoyed your meal. Our brunch menu has a combination of salads, egg dishes, sandwiches, waffles, flatbreads, raw bar, and more. You may have visited us in-between brunch and dinner during which a limited menu is offered. If you're looking for lunch, it is served Monday-Friday as well as dinner nightly. Warmest, Allison
The food was great but the server had better things to do. We understand that many establishments are short staffed and we were in no hurry but this felt like purposeful neglect.
There was a large party behind us that was having a great time which is lovely after last year but added to a din and clatter that made for a less than ideal experience.
Hi Trina, I am sorry for the inattentiveness, I can assure you that it was not purposeful. As you said, staffing is tough for our industry. I hope you give us another chance in the future. We would be happy to seat you in an area that is more private. Warmest, Allison
I love this place. Total neighborhood gem. I’m sure the food is amazing. My dietary restrictions make it hard for me to find much on the menu. The service is excellent. The setting is fantastic.
Over priced for what it was.
Don't bother dressing up if you dine there, because nobody else does.
Very expensive for such a ' casual' setting and a little pretentious as a result of this.
Wonderful menu, food and atmosphere with great service. Located across from the Commons- convenient downtown locaiton.
We had to wait a little while for our food to be delivered but it was great
Food was very disappointing. Expensive but not worth it. Halibut overcooked and the seafood in the bouillabaisse was flavorless.
High end food wit excellent service and great menu. The mussels are superb.
Amazing service and great food, try the tuna tartare and the salmon, a must. We also loved the wine list, great producers!!
The perfect spot and evening for a girl’s trip to Boston! The service was impeccable as was the food and wine! Thank you for making it extra special.
I had the burger and frites. It was very good. My friend has the omelet which was a major disappointment. The menu claimed spinach but there were about 2 leaves. Underwhelming @ best!
$12 for a tiny scoop of hazelnut ice cream was a bit egregious, but everything else was pretty great. Will return!
Very nice atmosphere, great service and delicious food! Couldn't be better!
Great meal after going to the symphony. Always great food. Excellent wine list. Best Manhattan cocktail I've ever had.
Food is really good. But for a bistro, it’s expensive…..in France a bistro is a small inexpensive restaurant serving simple but good food.
Eclectic and delicious tasting menu with wine pairings that was well thought out and very nicely paired. Service needs to be refined a touch - they should serve the women first (sexist or chivalrous- you decide) and avoid reaching over guests. Not a big deal as the food made up for any service lapses.
Nice place. Great service. We sat outside. Would go again!
We requested outdoor seating and the staff was very accommodating. Service was great, the menu varied, and the lunch food very good. The carrot soup was creamy and delicious, the burgers very tasty. The French fries arrived cold but were quickly replaced with ones that were hot and very delicious. The moderate noise rating refers to traffic on busy Boylston Street, so we have no reading of indoor noise level, but my sense on walking through to use the restroom is that it was very peaceful indoors.
We loved dinning at Bistro du midi! Beautiful atmosphere and delicious food. Service from waiter could use improvement.
The food is outstanding!! It’s really worth the wait and the money. The service was really slow. But we noticed they’re very shortstaffed. it wasn’t a that big deal even though I was pretty hungry. The ambiance is quite New England , extremely simple for my taste. But it’s also understandable.
I’d definitely come back for delicious food
Loved this place.
Meeting with friends, family dinner, clients or a simple date - Du Midi is always great.
There food is fantastic. I tasted the best rib eye and pasta carbonara in my life.
Nice location being right across the way from the public garden with good views of the area. Cocktails on the menu were great. The straightforward dirty martini that we ordered... Not so much. The tuna tartare tasted fresh and delicious. Oysters were fresh as well. Spanish octopus was delicious but wish you got more than one tentacle. The rib eye steak was delicious as well but the filet mignon came out rather bland and tasted burnt though it was appropriately medium rare in cooking. The pomme purée was delicious as well. Our only gripe - the Brussels were not cooked through at all, tasted raw and were cold inside. Had to send them back. Overall, would probably not go back.
Friends night out. Excellent food, atmosphere and service!
Service was amazing and the romantic setting is why I came back. The food was absolutely delicious.
Delicious brunch in a beautiful setting! We really enjoyed our meal in the upstairs dining room at Bistro du Midi. We started with a sampling of the pastries and cups of coffee. Both reminded us of Paris - flaky croissants and good coffee (although the cups are way too small)! Continuing on the theme of being in France, most of us followed up with Croque Madame. Excellent cheese and ham with the perfectly cooked egg on top! The others ordered Lemon Ricotta pancakes (emphasis on lemon!) and fresh fruit plate with a side of perfectly poached eggs.
The service was a bit too much like being in France: good when they do pay attention to you. The various staff were politely friendly, but not as attentive (e.g. having to get refills of the aforementioned cups required us having to track someone down to ask on multiple occasions) as we would have liked. My guess is the general staffing shortage at restaurants has also affected this place.
Food is usually good but brunch was disappointing. I ordered a feta, spinach omelette and it was not light and fluffy. It was rubbery and hard - almost like it was cooked and reheated. Also there was almost no feta and spinach. The sangria was good as usual, as were the potatoes. The dinner seems more consistent.
Good was fair
The noise level was off the charts upstairs.
I’m been here a few times. Surprised.
Hi there, Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for the noise, unfortunately there was surprise construction happening in the condo units above our restaurant that we were not made aware would be happening that day. Regarding your service, I would love to hear more about your experience as we're always looking to improve. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org m if you are open to speaking about your visit. Warmest, Allison
