About

This restaurant is permanently closed. 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.

The french onion soup was amazing! The kitchen was backed up in orders so our food was really late. The nice waitress with the short hair came to apologize and said she will give us a complimentary bread basket. It’s not her fault but it was nice of her. Crab cakes were good. Eggs benedict were tasty. Portions are just right so that I’m not full to my throat. I would go back again!

Very charming French restaurant, with lovely salmon-colors walls
and sweet, friendly waitstaff. The food is authentic and great, especially
the wonderful boeuf bourginon. A treat!

We live in NYC and go out 3-4 nights a week for dinner. This was our first time at Le Midi, but it won’t be our last. We felt so welcomed by the staff, the food was fantastic and it didn’t break the bank. Neighborhood gem, for sure. But so much more. Thanks for a great first visit Le Midi. Merci!

Always reliable - a neighborhood go to with a very good happy hour and good basic French food. Nothing here is going to blow your mind, but for a pleasant dinner and drinks, it really is a great local place.

I have had brunch and lunch at Le Midi before, but this was the first time for dinner. I arrived about 10 minutes before my 7 pm reservation, and not only did they seat me right away, but the servers told me I was early enough to order drinks from the Happy Hour menu and they would serve them later, when my guest arrived. The food was exactly what you'd expect from "French comfort food" and we enjoyed everything. Pricey, but portions were substantial and it was a bonus that we got the Happy Hour discount.

First service absolutely top notch. Could not ask for more. Food superb. We had carrot soup, entrecôte, and shared profiteroles. (Wife). I had a dozen of just sensational malpeque oysters, then coq au vin. Shared a bottle of a French Chardonnay. Very well priced. This restaurant is absolutely worth a visit. You Cannot be disappointed.

Next time I visit I really think I’ll have a dozen malpeques for appetizeser and the beef boucuignon.

And to make everything absolutely perfect parked right outside front door.

Service was a little slow to come to our table but quickly made up for it. Escargot was good and bread was warm! No ambiance but a good local informal spot.

Good menu and location. Service is fair, friendly but not attentive ( need water? need check? )
Enough to choose from on menu and basic as well as French Bistro fare. Not complicated or weird.
Sit down place where you can spend some time, which is not that easy to find in the neighborhood.

Excellent (Again)

This was our second visit to Le Midi. It was was excellent again.We had Coq au Vin and a medium rare duck breast dish. Probably the best tasting Coq au Vin I've eaten - and I make a mean Coq Au Vin. (But I have to get the recipe). The atmosphere was quiet enough to relax and hear conversation and the wait staff was very nice and attentive. Le Midi is officially a "regular place" to eat in Manhattan.
