Le Midi is a casual bistro serving classic French dishes. Sample favorites such as French onion soup, coq au vin and steak tartare among others. Food and drinks menus include a prix-fixe and happy hour, there are daily specials and you can eat at the bar or in the spacious dining room. Brunch includes Bellinis, Mimosas and bloody Marys for just $5 each. With 1,000 sq ft of space and room for 100 people, Le Midi suits both small groups and larger parties. The restaurant can seat up to 80; the bar can seat 17 people and accommodate up to 25 standing. Le Midi hosts many events and parties: business lunches and dinners, wedding parties, birthday, anniversary and holiday parties, baby showers, bachelorette parties, networking events, Bar Mitzvahs, wine tastings and more. In June 2014 we hosted Katie Couric’s bachelorette party for 45 girlfriends: drinks and dinner in Le Midi and a performance by a live gospel choir, followed by karaoke in the Karaoke Cave beneath the restaurant.

My friends and I had a very enjoyable meal. We all had the Prixe Fix which was three courses for $29.00....a very good value. I had the onion soup for a $2.00 up charge. It was delicious. My friend and I had the Steak Frites which was Hangar steak with delicious fries and salad. My other friend had the risotto. She did not enjoy her meal as much as we enjoyed ours. Rice pudding for dessert was exceptional because it was not too sweet and was very creamy. We would go back.

Le Midi never disappoints! We love the salad nicoise and the duck confit salad. The octopus appetizer is also a winner. Terrific neighborhood place.
Nice wine list too.

Pre fix dinner before a show at the David Roth theater. What a find! Service was excellent and the food was plentiful, well prepared and tasty. At under $30 you couldn’t get a better meal. Drink prices on the happy hour menus were very reasonable too. Even though we live on the UES we plan to make this a regular dining spot.

I have been to Le Midi 4 times - all brunches. Food is good and price is reasonable. I like the ambiance and decor of the restaurant. The staff friendly and attentive. Recommended: crab cake Benedict with hollandaise, croque Madame, eggs Benedict, frisée aux lardons. And for dessert: sorbet (mango-coconut-raspberry), berry tart, poached Bosc pear. Becoming my favorite brunch place and have brought family and friends there. Next is to try their dinner menu.

Have dined at Le Midi several times and it seems like things were a little off. Started at the bar where the happy hour specials are always a good deal. The service at the bar was good but I did notice that several of the bar stools could stand to have their cushions recovered. Service once we were seated for dinner was a little spotty. We started with truffle fries which arrived cold and then a request for ketchup took several minutes to fill. The cassoulet special was good but nothing special. The lamb and mushroom ravioli were both good as always. The wine list includes some hidden gems and we always love to root them out to enjoy. Overall a good evening with a couple of things that need a little work. We'll likely be back.

The food, service, and ambience were fabulous.! I took my husband here for his Birthday. We both ordered the sea bass for dinner after appetizers of onion soup and salad. My husband commented that the fish was one of the best preparations he had ever had anywhere in the world. The fish and sauce were the perfect combination of tastes. We finished dinner with a bottle of wine, sorbet and flan. Perfection!

My wife and friends have been to Le Midi many times through the years and it never disappoints. We live in the neighborhood and it is our go to restaurant for prix fix meals and also for celebrations and whenever we have visitors to New York City. The service is professional as well as friendly, not snooty. The food is excellent or we would not return. The pricing is fair, not overly expensive, but also not cheap. The atmosphere is intimate even though it is a large restaurant with a large bar, it still feels very much like a neighborhood place to go. I like the onion soup and order it every time. My wife loves the duck breast or the salmon as well as the sea bass. Great food, good service, quiet to moderate atmosphere where one can hear your friends conversations, what could be better?

Love this spacious French style restaurant and the food is wonderful. We had the salad Nicoise, with roasted tuna that was perfection, with tons of vegetables and wonderful dressing on the side. All the food is delicious there. And I love the Happy Hour wine list - excellent and wide selections. This is a great
place for any time, and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. My fave.

Le Midi offers very good French bistro fare at a good value. The happy hour should not be missed. Our waiter was informed about the menu and attentive. The location makes it accessible by multiple subway lines.

I am a regular at Le Midi and brought a friend after making a recommendation. We ordered salads and truffle fries to share - asking for the fries to come first. We waited well over 30-45 mins which is unusual for this restaurant as the service is always good. After watching food go past us to every other table, we checked with the waiter - he apologized profusely and the manager offered us free drinks, which was very nice. The salads and fries came together which wasn’t ideal but the waiter didn’t said he didn’t understand English fully so had missed our request. He was overwhelmed being the only person on that night with a full restaurant to serve so it wasn’t his fault. However,despite the slow service we had a lovely evening.

We had an early dinner before a show. The food was fresh, perfectly prepared and delicious. The wait staff was attentive, but not hovering. The salmon and avocado tartare was exceptional. Yum!

The service and food were fine. There were four of us, and we all agreed the portions were ample and food was prepared well. However, the noise level was deafening. Really loud and probably would not return because of the noise level.

we lucked out and got a fairly quiet corner at Le Midi
The menu had quite a good variety of choices
Wine list was decent and not over priced
The octopus appetizer and duck confit salad will keep us coming back

Service at Le Midi was so friendly and accommodating that I hate to leave a mixed review. But honestly the food was just ok. Caesar salad was ordinary, gravlax had a very odd taste (to be clear, not "off", just didn't taste like gravlax at all). Berry tart again pretty ordinary. Even the cappuccino was weak. Sorry guys. Hope this helps.

Have had a few good dinners at this smallish place before so thought I would try lunch. Was not disappointed. My cousin and I had omelets Excellent choice. Very nice helpful service. We needed time to catch up on old times together as kids and the staff left us alone until we were ready. Look forward to another visit.

Mains sat for so long before being served, the food was cold. They attempted to reheat and food was inedible. To their credit, they did not charge for entree. Blame server or expediter. Restaurant was not at all busy so don’t get the lack of attention

We always have a great experience here. This is one of the low key no-pressure French bistros with great service and great food. Prix fix is a great value, and there are always several specials outside the main menu. Great place for a talk with friends, or just a bar stop on the way home!

Yes, we benefited from the fact that it was the first night of Passover, the surrounding colleges were closed and it was raining!

This is not our first (or our last) visit. The food is good, tough i have had better bistro fare. Stick to the basics: French Onion Soup, Escargot, Salmon & Avocado Tartare, Boeuf Bourguignon & Entrecôte (steak frites). Wine selection is good & fairly priced. Service is friendly and attentive.

Will we come here again (the acid test)? Without question!
