This was our first time at Bistro du Midi and it was fabulous. The food presentation was lovely and our halibut and duck were cooked to perfection. It may have been the best halibut I’ve ever had. Portions are the right size- we had appetizers, main with a shared side of roasted root vegetables and we shared a dessert and left full but not uncomfortable.
The service was also perfect. We were greeted warmly upon entry and again as we were escorted to the main dining room. Our waitress was friendly, attentive and our food came out at just the right intervals.
We eat out a lot and this experience stood out. We will return. In fact before we left, we were discussing our next visit.
Great experience food was amazing , drinks were perfect and the portions were great for its price.
We went for my wife’s birthday. The restaurant was very attentive to this occasion and our server, Nabil, was incredibly gracious. In fact I would rate him is possibly the best server I have ever had. Food was great, atmosphere was great, service was over the top and we will definitely come back.
The food, atmosphere, the view of the Garden was a perfect date night!
The service was exceptional and the food was of high quality. The charcuterie selection was the best and the plating of the food was very appetizing. Enjoyed the ambiance and food and service. Nothing to complain about!
My wife and I celebrated her birthday. We started with cocktails and the bartenders were great. They made my wife a special martini cocktail (less acidic) and tasted great. Nice ambiance and setting near Boston Commons. Will go back again!
As usual, a phenomenal experience
Food and service exqusite!
Still my favorite Boston location for special occasion dining
Great foie gras and we get ours in France so we’re expecting the best. We both got it and find that the serving is very small compared to what we receive in France for the cost.
We love the chocolate soufflé and will share it next time as it’s too rich for one!!
Amaizng food l, service and atmosphere. Phenomenal experience.
The food and cocktails were delicious and the upstairs was the perfect setting to enjoy it all.
We have been here several times and returned for Valentines Day. The price fixe tasting menu was very good; however, it was also Ash Wednesday and the only fish option was Salmon, which my husband doesn’t care for. The Chef substituted a different fish for him, and it was spectacular. We appreciated the flexibility on such a busy night. That above and beyond gesture made a fantastic meal and great service even more memorable. We will definitely return.
Valentines dinner and a proposal. They had a tasting menu with wine pairings. Dinner was excellent but with most tasting menus one or two misses though it is strictly taste, nothing to do with ingredients or preparation. Overall a very romantic dinner together. After I proposed, they brought a complimentary champagne toast for us. Waitstaff was excellent and friendly and took time to explain items. My fiance has a dairy sensitivity and hazelnut allergy and they adjusted the menu for her or made alternative recommendations for the items she couldn't eat. Definitely recommend this restaurant.
We've been to Bistro du Midi several times and it is always excellent. The wine list is great and the chef's tasting with wine pairing exceptional. the plates were very generous for a tasting so we were stuffed but the food was fantastic so it was easy to indulge and enjoy every bite. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the wines and menu and very attentive. Would recommend for a date night.
Based on previous reviews & reputation I was excited to dine here.
I thought the room was nice with the fireplace and nice evening views of the public garden.
There was a cocktail party / function going on in private room but they left the doors open. So the quiet dining room was not so quiet as the group was not exactly quiet. Would have been easy to close the doors.
At a restaurant of this stature I would expect a manager to stop by table once to check in...did not happen & not sure one was in the dining room.
Drinks were good...
The appetizers were ok...my wife had squash soup & I had yellowtail. They did not meet our expectations.
Entrees ( Duck & Halibut ) were on a very hot plate but the food was not really hot. Duck was once again good but the level I expected and a little tough. Both lacked a little in flavor.
This is not an inexpensive restaurant & just did not really approach 5 star in any area.
oh well "c'est ce que c'est"
We came on the Saturday before Valentine's day and enjoyed an excellent dinner that ended by sharing a chocolate soufflé (highly recommended). We shared starters of tuna tartare (excellent) and fluke crudo (even better) and then my wife ordered sea bass for her main course and I got duck breast - both of which were excellent. We have been coming to Bistro du Midi since it was Bibas (and then Excelsior). It continues to be a superb restaurant and one of our favorite places to celebrate special occasions (and the Saturday before Valentine's Day)
