Le Midi Bar & Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
A great place for a casual dinner with traditional French food. Warm and cozy atmosphere and good for quiet conversation. The prix-fixe and happy hour menus are a very good value and the movies over the bar are a treat! Consistent good food and service in a comfortable setting. Will definitely return.
The first thing I thought was this place is really cute - I saw a lot of families and a lot of older people. My friend and I are in our mid-twenties, so it was an eclectic bunch.
I had escargot for the first time here and it was actually not bad?! I didn't like that it came out swimming in oil, but it just tasted kind of like octopus.
The duck was nice and tender - this felt like a typical French restaurant. Nothing to write home about, but not a bad place to stop by.
They are always so nice to us here I really feel guilty when I don't bring people who buy from the bar! (I'm a tea drinker lol.) Food's always good; though sometimes they seem expensive to me they are on par with the neighborhood, and they also have great happy hour specials. But mostly we come for the good ambience, great location, and wonderful warm staff. Thank you again for a wonderful evening.
We have dined at Midi several times a year as we live in the neighborhood.
We went there for dinner early on the Sunday after Thanksgiving. The food was fine but the service/servicing was terrible; they were at least one waiter below staff and despite being the only diners, we were constantly underserved by amateur services.It was very disappointing.
I was here for lunch with some friends during the week. It was quite empty so there were no problems with service or the noise level. We all enjoyed the overall ambiance of the space. We all ordered the price fixe lunch and were very happy with our choices which included carrot soup, loup du mer (sea bass) and steak frites. I would definitely return.
I had a FABULOUS experience @ Le Midi ~ The waiter was attentive & friendly ~ the food, T&T, & Bordeaux were superb ~ AND there was plenty of easy space to enjoy the company of my friend ~ I have already recommended Le Midi to a few of my friends. Le Midi ~ Bravo! Merci Beaucoups!
Service was very friendly and very good. The shrimp cocktail was no bargain. The cocktail sauce was weak. The escargot were very tasty. I enjoyed the Beef Bourguignon, but it wasn't all that great. Not a romantic date spot, but the place is simple and has cool art on the wall.
I always forget about this place as it is just off of Union Sq. When I select french on the open table site I see it and remember how good the food is and great service. If you enjoy french cuisine and a large restaurant where the tables are not so on top of each other and a lovely wine list then this is the place the cheese plate was lovely , we were there with friends and everyone enjoyed the meal will go back soon
The place was very big and open, the waiter was great and the food was very very good. The escargot were perfectly cooked and so was the duck for the duck salad, the risotto and the beef bourginon were great. They also had a great happy hour wine list so for only $24 you can get a great bottle of wine. Overall I had a great time in a great place. We were never rushed and the pace of the meal was perfect.
This restaurant is quite the neighborhood gem! The food is really delicious and the fixed price meals are really a great deal. I personally love the Salmon, however my friend ordered the steak and loved it!
I definitely recommend giving this restaurant a try!
I've enjoyed several meals at Le Midi is recent weeks, and each was very enjoyable. The dinner menu offers a nice variety of appealing options, and the wine menu is notable for value -- high quality at very reasonable prices. I not only recommend this place to friends, I bring friends here. Love the subtitled movie classics playing on the huge screen above the bar!
I have had lunch with friends several times at Le Midi and have never been disappointed. Their summer salad lunches are generous and well prepared (the pepper crusted tuna in my salade niçoise was perfectly cooked to my request) and their winter offerings, including some very traditional French standards like coq au vin, are equally appealing. It's never too crowded at lunch time so the atmosphere is delightfully calm. I will be back.
The Maitre D, Ronnie, was excellent. My party had two people with health issues, so I visited the day before to make sure we had the best table to accommodate them. She went out of her way to find the best spot & remembered me and our needs when we came to dinner the next day. The waitress (whose name I unfortunately did not get) was equally considerate and welcoming. Plus the prix fixe is very reasonably priced. All of this added immeasurably to our having a very pleasant dinner.
