Lovely restaurant and a great value. The mussels appetizer was perfectly cooked and the sauce was delicious. The lamb and the scallops were also cooked just the way we like them.

Restaurant was nice. Had the precise menu, enough food in 3 course meal. I had steak, they mess up on the temperature of my steak ( medium /well instead of medium /rare), but it was still tender for me. Place a little loud and people at the bar kept bumping in to my chair during the happy hour. Service was good.

Because we ate here very early in order to get to a 7:00 curtain, my hunch is we did not see the full buzz that the space, food and staff most likely attract later in an evening. But for our purposes it was lovely -- food is not ambitious but is flavorful with nice touches, well prepared and presented. The staff is attentive, friendly, well-trained and eager to please without being intrusive or too chummy. We have a theater subscription nearby and will be back regularly on at least those nights.

I went to this restaurant pre-theater and was pleasantly surprised by by how good the food was in light of the fact that I ordered the early bird special. I was treated to a 3 course meal that was really quite inexpensive and a glass of wine for $6, unheard of.
Would certainly go again.

Excellent food and service. Special prix fixe from 5 to 7 and all evening Sunday is amazing, including Happy Hour drinks. for $27 Onion Soup, Hanger Steak and Creme Caramel. All portions large. Food very tasty. $7 Cosmopolitans and Negronis.

Charming staff. Highly recommend for a casual evening.

A little loud due to a fairly large party, but hostess assured us they would be gone in an hour -- and they were.

Le Midi was on its "A game" at Friday Happy Hour. The Happy Hour bargains cannot be beat. Half-price wine and $1 oysters. Delicious and a bargain at the same time.

The food is good, The Sunday pre-fixe dinner a bargain. The restaurant advertises all bottles and wine glasses at 50% until 7pm on Sunday. However, the first invoice indicated full price, the second invoice 1/2 for the bottle but full for two glasses. It took a lot of discussion and a third check to get in right. Patrons shouldn't have to ask for these things. Also, the restaurant added a 20% gratuity for a table of 6. It should be no more than 18 and up to the patrons to give. Ore.

The restaurant was small but not stuffy. The bar was crowded but we sat in the back and were able to have a nice conversation without yelling. The decor is simple and somewhat sparse and could use a little sprucing up but overall it was neat and unassuming. The service was excellent, very friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and presented beautifully. The prices were reasonable and we felt very at home. I would definitely recommend and will go there again.

I went with a large group of friends and we all loved the food, location and ambiance. It was very busy on a Friday night but the waitress stayed calm and didn't seem frustrated. She was very friendly and got all of our orders right. She was even kind enough to split the bill 7 different ways for us.

Bravo!
We were sat immediately and the hostess could tell that we were on a date she offered to seat us at her favorite table in the house. It got better from there! The service was attentive but not overbearing and our server was always smiling with a bubbly personality. She shared with us the specials of the night and we ended up getting a wonderful bottle of wine from the list of specials for the evening. We ordered two appetizers which were both phenomenal! The crab cakes and french onion soup which i believe was made to perfection as it was balanced and not one ingredient was overcompensated for another. Again, Bravo! For our main course we decided to share the pistachio crusted lamb and a side of pomme frites. The lamb was cooked to our liking and was full of flavor. The fires were stupendous and if I had more room I would have ate them all. Five stars from start to finish. Bravo, Bravo!

I had a 6:00 reservation for dinner which meant that we were in time for the early bird prefix menu and the bar menu. I ordered the $1 oysters which were very good. My friend and I both ordered from the prefix menu. I had the soup of the day which was lobster bisque. There were no chunks of lobster in it but the soup was very good. For my entrée I had the sea bass with hearts of palm. I enjoyed that as well. my friend had the salad to start (standard) and the hangar steak with fries. She ordered medium but it came medium rare. I helped her eat the rarer pieces which were delicious. The steak also came out pre sliced which was odd. The choices for dessert on the menu were rice pudding, crème caramel and ice cream/sorbet. I asked the waitress what kind of rice pudding and she had no idea. She actually told us that maybe the more professional waitress would know. What?!? So I guess she's not professional. We didn't order in advance so when the "professional" waitress came to us she said our choices were rice pudding (she couldn't explain it either), tiramisu and ice cream. I ordered the tiramisu and my friend ordered the ice cream. My friend's dessert was freezer burned. She couldn't eat it. My dessert was NOT tiramisu. It was some kind of short cake with whipped cream all over it, fresh blueberries and raspberry syrup on my plate. The cake also had a layer of banana in it. There was zero coffee/expresso flavor in this cake. No cocoa dusting. I told the waitress that this is not tiramisu. She just said "it's not? I have no idea". She didn't bother correcting the situation or asking the kitchen for an explanation. The wait staff were pleasant but totally clueless and NOT professional ironically. The restaurant itself was very quaint and lovely. For the most part, the place was nice, the food was good and the value was excellent. The staff just needs more training.

Fantastic Prix fixe dinner on Sunday night all evening. Well they were out of the hanger steak, the Branzino was excellent. Everyone loved their onion soup. One person had steak tartare which was good but not intensely flavored. Happily they were willing to do a smaller portion for an appetizer because it would have been too much as an entree. Escargot deliciously smelled of garlic. Service was attentive. A nice neighborhood restaurant with very good food and people. Highly recommend

Had a New Year's Day gathering with former colleagues on a nice cozy late Sunday afternoon. Had a mid afternoon movie and really hungry appetite for some really good French food. Thank goodness out pretty hostess was very accomadating in offering their Sunday brunch even when it was time to change over to dinner menu. The Sunday brunch was awesome in terms of portion, price and great complement to their awesome happy hour alcoholic beverages / cocktails. Will definitely come back for a potential late night dinner date and enjoy the overall culinary and scenic establishment. review for this French cafe bistro!
