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.

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.

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 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!

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!!
