If you're coming here, be sure to walk beyond the RumBa bar area to reach it.

Restaurant in the intercontinental, on the fancy side. Quiet, nice view. Food is sub-par. We were there for valentines day where we paid $90 per person for 3 courses , plus cocktails/a bottle of wine. You’d get better food elsewhere.

Nice setting, good service, quiet. Food was not that great. I was told there would be A la carte menu upon my confirmation for Valentines, Unfortunately this was not available when we started to order. The Valentines menu was very limited and unfriendly for folks looking for on dietary restrictions.

Dined at Miel on Valentine's Day. Wow! They had a set three-course menu with fabulous choices. Service was great AND they gave me a rose and bag of cherry chocolates. Can't wait to come back.

I had two problems with this restaurant:

1) While it is advertised as French (and the name suggests it), there is very little actual French cuisine on the menu; and
2) I saw my waiter twice: once when I sat down and was not even ready to order a drink, and ten minutes later when he took my order. When the server brought my food, I had to ask her about my glass of wine. She looked for the waiter and then proceeded to bring my wine to me. Finally, I waited about ten minutes after I finished my meal, and still, saw no sign of my waiter, so I went to the desk and paid. Needless to say, I gave no tip.

Now, in case somebody thought it was busy, I was there when there were only four other tables occupied (there may have been a large group in the back area), so I don't think they can say they were extremely busy. It is possible that the waiter had to leave due to some emergency, but then the restaurant should have let me know.

I have to admit that I tried this place without doing research, but I expect a 4 star place on tripadvisor to be better than this.

I did have the ESCARGOT VOL AU VENT and Truffle Frites. The excargot was good, but the frites were cold. This place is definitely not worth a visit.

Great coffee and nice waiter but the kitchen was way too slow. When the food arrived my eggs came out twice undercooked. The waiter ended up the third time cooking them himself to be sure they were done correctly. He was great.
My husbands was undercooked too.

We've been here multiple times during various times of the year. The food has been consistently very good. Unfortunately, the service is somewhat inconsistent. We used a travelzoon coupon this time. I suspect the waiter didn't think of us as valued customers because we had a coupon for our meal. Our service was lackluster.

Wonderful meal and location on the harbor walk. Menu not strictly french. Great food and atmosphere, view of Fort Point Channel bridges and harbor walk. The restaurant has a tranquil atmosphere, nice place to have a conversation, bar seemed to be busy.

My husband and I have been eating out on Christmas late for the past nine years. I would say by far this was the most pleasant experience! The service was fantastic the food was absolutely delicious and the ambience was nice.
My only complaint is that we were not informed Ahead of time that it would be a pri-fixed meal with a set price. I even called in the afternoon to confirm our res and the man I spoke with did not Inform me. Other than that issue, everything was amazing.
Thank you!

They had the three-course menu for Christmas eve. One of the main dishes, duck, was one of the best I have ever had. Unfortunately, it is not on their regular menu. I recommend it to be on!

We arrived at 5:00 PM to a nearly empty restaurant. We asked for a window table but were told that the tables were pre-assigned and then were seated at a table next to a large family (one of only 2 occupied tables in the entire restaurant). We were then surprised to discover that there was only a limited overpriced menu available which was not disclosed when we made our reservation.
The table service and meal were OK.....nothing special to warrant the inflated price.
When we left, the restaurant was still mostly empty including the window table we requested and were denied.

Our experience was not typical due to us dining there the Saturday before the holidays when like most restaurants in that area, Miel was very quiet. The food was wonderful and we had a very nice time there. I’d like to return on a more typical night.

There for an Anniversary brunch. It was nice to be by the harbor. This restaurant is not what I expected in a French Brasserie as the food was not particularly French. But it was good. I would go back for the Lobster and Clam chowder which had plenty of fresh lobster and clams along with sweet potatoe and corn. A nice twist on New England Clam Chowder.
Our server Maia was on point!

This was our first visit to Miel. The ambiance was lovely and the staff were friendly. The food was plated well and arrived in a timely fashion. My only disappointment was the lack of attentiveness. We had to request plates after the bread was brought to the table. My husband’s meal was served without a proper knife and as a result he had to ask for one. My sister had to request another glass of wine rather than having it offered. There was a large group , possibly a corporate party this evening so it’s possible they were overwhelmed. Overall, we had a nice experience.

This was a super overpriced restaurant for the level of food quality and service. The waitress was nice, but not very attentive. The steak was probably one of the worst quality steaks I have ever had--a crazy amount of gristle. The past wasn't great either. We ordered the truffle frites, and it tasted like regular pomme frites--no truffle.

Very nice dinner at Miel, a first time visit to catch up with a few I hadn’t seen in a long while. It was an early dinner on a Monday night, so there weren’t too many diners. We had a great table looking out over the water. Our waiter Nico was great and recognized we had a lot to talk about, so gave us the time and space to do so. I had the duck and my friend had the pasta Provençal, both were delicious. We also had dessert, the chocolate molten lava cake and Creme brûlée. Enjoyable dinner, we both would return, based on this experience.

Miel was good, as a solid, generic, city restaurant. The expectation was French cuisine but that was a minor element. Good atmosphere, reasonable noise level, very slow service. Food good, not great. No unique elements to the food. An average / generic restaurant in my opinion.

Not the best experience at this place. My husband and I had a voucher we bought that was supposed to give us around $120 worth of food for $69 and instead the wait staff tried to overcharge us by adding the cost of the voucher that we had already paid for to the bill and then leaving out the amount on a second bill to show the difference between with and without voucher totals. And we had to explain to her that that amount should be deducted instead of added. I've bought vouchers to restaurants before and while they all list what's included in the price, all the other places we went to allowed anything on the menu to be ordered and we just had to pay the difference if it went over the value. This place turned out to be very strict about their voucher policy which we found out after we had ordered a few things that weren't included, unfortunately. Assuming they'd be more lax with their rules may have been our fault but they could've been up front about it from the beginning when I told them that we have a voucher. I asked if they could make an exception and after waiting for a while, our waitress came back and said that they will honor the amount paid rather than the full value of the deal (which was the whole purpose of us coming here). The atmosphere was the most pleasant thing about this restaurant but everything else was somewhat mediocre for the kind of status this place carries. The food was so so. The grilled octopus and oysters on the half shell were delicious. But the burrata salad and scallop entree were ok, not the best. Looks like they change their menu from time to time so maybe the food is better now. But overall, after the awkward experience we had with the voucher, we wouldn't come back here.
