I got the prosciutto and burrata toast, which was delicious. Usually I’m wary of burrata, as it can be runny, but this was very spreadable. I also ordered the truffle eggs with pork belly, which was as equally delicious. I will definitely be coming back soon!
The food was good but not great, short rib was very good, but sides were...ehh
Very friendly service with wonderful food. We always enjoy eating at Miel.
We ordered a filet mignon well done. It came in burnt from outside with totally black uneatable meat and bloody inside. Clearly the person responsible in the kitchen didnt know what to do. The waiter took it back and recooked the steak. It cam back ok but by then my wife had finished eating.
My wife ordered scallops. She wanted to substitute the mashed potato side with a veggie. The waiter said no. And there was no side order to purchase. The waiter admitted “you are pretty much stuck with the sides”. The desserts were fine but nothing to die for: a chocolate lava cake and a strawberry cheesecake. Really? For a French restaurant? One would expect they would have chocolate profiteroles.
The waiter was polite but overworked. Too many people were at the front desk but only 2 waiters on the floor.
We paid $235 for 2 on valentine dinner but it was a poor experience. With indulgence, I would rate them between the olive garden and the cheesecake factory.
It's cute! Nice big bay windows let in a lot of light over the harbour. Only complaint was that the menu was a little less varied than I would have liked. Wanted a la carte because I don't eat very much. Might come back and try the buffet. The spread seemed huge. They didn't offer to validate parking, though, so that was irritating when I paid for that. The waiter was great, very sweet. I'd come back.
Food was good, a bit pricey though
WONDERFUL DUCK. TERRIFIC STEAK FRITE, GOOD WINE, VERY NICE
Clearly overpriced compared to the quality of the food. I was quite disappointed by the refinement and presentation.
Food was over cooked. But cold at the same time.
Went here on a friday night around 6:30 and we were just about the only people inside the restaurant. It was dead. The food tastes great but... I was not very happy with going to this restaurant because there is just so many other better restaurants around boston to choose from.
Overall good but not great.
I was prepared to love MIEL - the photos of their dining room were beautiful and I love french bistros. Unfortunately it was terrible and I can't recommend this place to anyone.
When we arrived for brunch I was surprised to see that it is actually connected to the hotel's rum bar. The transition from 2 completely different restaurant concepts was awkward. As we walked to our table at the far end of the restaurant I noticed that every banquette we walked by had terrible stains on the seatbacks. I'm talking about highly visible stains as we were walking by. I doubt they have been cleaned in years.
Once we were seated and looked at the menu (which I admit I hadn't checked in advance) I struggled to find any resemblance to a french bistro menu. Corned beef hash at a french restaurant? The most appetizing option looked like the avocado smash, but I couldn't bring myself to pay $23 for avocado toast with smoked salmon. If everything else about the experience felt special I probably would have gladly paid it. Instead I chose an omelette which was mediocre, and didn't even finish it. The home fries I got on the side were inconsistently sized and a little dried out, some of the pieces were the size of a dime.
In summary, MIEL will be a hard pass for me anytime in future.
I’m wasn’t super impressed. We came for NYE while staying at the intercontinental. It was very convenient and had all the outward appearances of a fancy dinner. Service was impeccable and ambiance lovely but for a $300 dinner the food was unimpressive. I had the sea bass and i honestly can’t put my finger on what was missing, but it just wasn’t quite there.
I would have given 1-star but the dining room manager, Lola, is outstanding and she alone deserves a star. We had dinner here and it was really disappointing. The food is good. The ambience is great. The service was terrible. In fact, it was so bad that for the first time in decades of going to upscale restaurants I asked for my dessert to go because I couldn’t sit in there another minute. At one point, a diner at another table went and found us plates because that’s the only way we were getting them. The waiter was so passive aggressive that he made us order desserts with our mains because he said there wouldn’t be time afterward (it was 8pm and they close at 11). The food is good but it’s 1) not French and 2) no more than “good”. So, the value is poor. This restaurant has a huge opportunity to reinvent themselves due to the exquisite location and demand in that area. I hope they do.
Great brunch. Good food, good service in a very nice room. We will be back!
Everything was good but not great. Despite having a OT reservation the hostess sat us right next to the kitchen entrance and she apologized saying, "Sorry for this table. We have lots of reservations" - some of he more desirable tables were NEVER sat for the entire 1 1/2 hours we were there. I am curious as to why our reservation was not deemed as worthy of a good table as the other reservations. Food took a long time and we were never offered refills on empty wine glasses that we would have ordered.
Glad I had a Travelzoo coupon as it would never have been worth full price.
We expected more. Staying in The Intercontinental Boston, we felt that it was a great choice for a nice dining spot on a cold winter day. Ambiance was good. The setup was eclectic and not so elegant but we got a nice cozy table at the window with a great view of the Tea Party museum. The restaurant was half empty but the two of us were seated next to a family with four little kids who were very noisy. I do not understand the parents who take their tired little kids out to a fancy restaurant at 8 in the evening and let them do whatever they want. The restaurant management did nothing about it. The food was hardly edible. Clams were undercooked and the fish smelled. Won’t go there again despite good though slow service.
I asked for a window seat, and was not provided with such. Even though it was apparent that such a seat was available the whole time we were there.
Christmas Dinner was fantastic. The smoked scallops in potato leek soup was excellent but the Bouillabaisse containing large portions of seafood was beyond wonderful. And then there was the dessert. It was so delicious. I opted to do the wine pairing which only enhanced the meal more. Fabulous. I have eaten here many time and the quality never changes. Kudos to the Chef.
Great service prior to my 12pm-noon arrival by Cristian. My waiter & busers gave me first-class service on Christmas Day. A Christmas lunch I will never forget.
We really enjoy brunch and the waiter was very helpful with our food selection/order. We will definitely be back!
Loud, limited menu, very poor waitstaff. My knife wouldn’t cut the brisket, the waiter was never there to poor our empty wine glasses, the ambience was noisy.
Beautiful decor and nice light in the dining space at Miel. The service was outstanding, I wish the brunch menu had more vegetarian/venga/gluten-free options and a more varied creative menu.
I really like this ambiance of this restaurant, but the meals were pretty disappointing. My friend had to send her medium rare steak back because it was medium-well. My gnocchi was too salty. and the lobster mac and cheese was too runny. It felt like the mac and cheese was from out of a box. The wait staff was a little slow, but very pleasant and nice. The apps were actually very good. We had octopus and beef tartare
The noise from the lounge was a bit loud and carried into the restaurant, but the meal was very nice and service very good.
It was amazing.
Was expecting a lot more, the food is good and drinks were great but the atmosphere was not great, the decor is different from what the pictures show in the website
Perfect evening with my small office to celebrate the holidays. Not One thing was wrong. Th room is beautiful and very airy. The tables are spaced well apart and we felt as if we were the only people in the room. All of the service staff were impeccable (shout out to Nick) and came exactly when you needed them. Monkfish and Clams: delicious. Grilled octopus: melt in your mouth tender. I can't wait to come again during the summer when we can see the view. In the dark, the lights across the way were beautiful.
Lovely service and special touches for my birthday
Excellent cuisine, great service.
has become our favorite dinner spot in town; the promo cost is the best deal around; classy dining
Great service and great ambiance. Our waiter was great. Did an impeccable job without being invasive
Dinner was great! Had a great time!
We have had dinner at Miel a hand-full of times now - and are always more than pleased with the quality of the food, the service and the atmosphere. Just love everything about it. And for a Boston restaurant it is reasonably priced. Will be back again, as we consider it one of our favorites.
Our waiter, Dorje Sherpa, was excellent and offered several good suggestions. Aside from his excellent service, the scallops entrees we had were way overcooked and rubbery. This is not what one should expect for a local food signature dish in Boston. Being a Sunday night, perhaps we ran into an inexperienced sous chef. Maybe a Sunday brunch would result in better prepared offerings.
We were very happy with the food at MIEL. Everything was creative and delicious. I especially loved the salad and the chocolate cake. Our waiter on the other hand left much to be desired. I ordered the wine pairing, he brought the 2nd wine out while I was still eating my salad, I think it should have been served with my entree. I had to remind him to bring my dessert wine. He charged us for 2 wine pairings and we only had one. I also found him to be inattentive. He never once asked if we would like our water glass filled...even though they were empty and there were long gaps between courses.
Went for Thanksgiving! Lovely staff and array of different dishes throughout the course.
Birthday. A delicious complimentary dessert was presented.
Food was a little uneven. Lobster was not good on Benedict. Server went on break and we were ignored until his break ended. Given the unevenness of food quality, price was high.
Great brunch - used coupon!!
