Bistro du Midi's cuisine features the simple yet refined flavors of Provence and the South of France. We feature an extensive award-winning wine list, and offer it all in a relaxed environment overlooking Boston's beautiful Public Garden. A street level cafe 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.

We received a gift card and figured we could have a nice date at a reasonable price. We did the 5-course pre-fix with wine pairing and it was great. It would have been WAY out of my price range without the gift card, but it was a great date night with our gift card.

It was ridiculously empty, but I have a feeling that made the food better because it allowed an all star team to do their thing. We loved it!

We had Sunday brunch and the 3 of us ordered something different and shared. All of the options we chose were delicious and well prepared. The bloody mary cocktail special was exceptional, and the portions were generous; none of us ordered dessert because we simply didn't have room. We will return to this restaurant--the view into the public garden is a nice complement to the wonderful atmosphere inside.

I had a birthday brunch here and the wait staff, managers, and hostess were extremely attentive and nice. Not to mention the food is just magnificent. Our server was Jennifer and she was very knowledgeable about the menu and welcoming. I had such a great experience for my birthday brunch!

One of the best meals we’ve had in a long time. Fresh ingredients, innovative cuisine and excellent service. Had a table in front of the fireplace, looking out onto Boston Garden. Bistro du Midi satisfied the foodies and the plain steak and potatoes people in our group...a rare find!

We dined here on New Years Eve. The set menu with wine pairings was just perfect. Every dish looked beautiful and tasted delicious. The wines were all interesting and matched each course perfectly. The service was great - the meal was perfectly timed to culminate just before midnight. My only negative was that our table near the window was a little cold although the view was lively and the space felt intimate and looked cosy.

Private party facilities
Our private Wine Room can accommodate groups from 10 to 30 behind handsome sliding barn doors. The room features a stunning view of Boston's public garden, original sketches by Henri Matisse against deep red walls and a window into our upstairs wine cellar. The Wine Room is a perfect option for intimate family gatherings, business meetings and celebrations of any type.

Our semi-private Matisse Alcove sits just off the main dining room with three walls around the table and the fourth side open to the dining room, providing parties of 6 to 10 guests with a more intimate dining experience while still allowing guests to enjoy the energy of the restaurant.
