 (New York Area)·Dined on April 22, 2011

I scheduled lunch at Miel to join my cousin, recently moved to Cambridge, and my college roommate (from the mid-1960s). We had a wonderful afternoon's reunion. It was quiet enough for good conversation (hard to find in restaurants these days), the food was quite good, and the staff let us enjoy our afternoon together. Thank you.

Spent an enjoyable evening at Miel. The food was excellent; the wine list reasonable and the service was perfect. In addition, although the dining room was full, the noise level was very low, making conversation easy. Overall, a perfect combination.

Beautiful setting, wonderful food. This is the best French restaurant we've found in Boston. We've been several times, and have never had anything but wonderful things to say about this place. The service is lovely as well. This place is often empty or lightly populated, so don't go for the scene. Enjoy!

Personally, my husband and I found the food very salty, and rather tasteless. There was another guest staying at the hotel who advised my husband to eat elsewhere. We decided to give Miel a try. We should have listened to the guest.

Could not figure out why the restaurant was so quiet when it is a lovely place. Food was superb, a beautiful view, quiet, tables are not crowded together, spaced for privacy. Everything I want in a restaurant., And did I mention the absolutely perfectly prepared dishes, Oysters Rockefeller were fabulous. the Bouillabaise was prepared just like I had outside of St. Tropez. Steaks were generous.

Attractive restaurant, but lousy food for the money and arrogant service. There are many much better restaurants on the waterfront with equally spectacular views and decor and much better food. Dont waste your time on this place. The bar is also a great place to people watch for vanity cases "enough about me...How do you like my dress?"

Went during Restaurant Week March 2011 and was very happy with the meal. Service was commensurate with a very high-end restaurant - attentive, knowledgeable but not hovering. Food was excellent all around.

First visit. Ambiance comfortable for our lunch or three. Food presentation was imaginative. My ham and cheese crepe arrived as a square covered by fresh greens. Absolute delicious, as was the chocolate fondant. Would recommend and gladly go again!

Three of us had dinner at Miel and we were all underwhelmed by our meal. Two of us had the steak and it was bland and fatty. The fries that came with the steak had good seasoning on them, but they were all limp. One had the ravioli, and again, it was bland. The goat cheese salad was decent. The pear torte was salty and tough to eat. The chocolate torte was the only highlight of the evening.

I was very disappointed in the food and service. Had to ask the waiter three times to bring lemon wedges. The first time I asked, he brought 2 lemon and 2 lime wedges when all four of us asked for lemon wedges in our water. Three of us ordered the steak and paid an additional $5 even though it was on the Restaurant Week menu and the steak was so tough that we couldn't cut it. The Citron Crepe was chosen by two of us and it was so bland. If it wasn't for the atmosphere and ambiance of the restaurant, this lunch would've been a disaster.

The food was very good but it took a very long time for our food to come out. It was Restaurant Week but I dine during this time and many restaurants in my area (Lala Rokh, Locke-Ober, Radius) and they've all bee able to handle the extra bookings. The people that were seated 10 minutes after us received their food before us. The waiters tried to take my luncheon partners' plate twice before she was done with her meal. While this is a lovely restaurant, I feel the food is over-rated and while there are a great number of service people hovering, they are not very skilled at what they do.

Asked for a medium-rare steak, but the steak is medium-cooked. Hard to cut the steak with a dull knife. Overall, very good service and enjoyed the three-course meal.

We went here for dinner during restaurant week and it was great. The service was a bit poor as the waiter messed up our dessert orders and also took our bottle of wine away before it was completely empty. However, the ambiance was great and we had a wonderful time.

Came to the restaurant for the Boston Restaurant Week. On the website they indicated they offer the lunch menu on Saturday and called a day ahead to inquire about the availability of the restaurant week lunch menu as well, which they also indicate they do offer it on Saturday. However, appoint arriving at the restaurant I asked the hostess about the menu and she said they do not offer it on Saturday. It is disappointing and also seems like the restaurant have very poor communication and service skills. The service is not very attentive. In addition, many of the staff there are somewhat discriminating because they only act attentive to certain guests. Quality service is non-existing in this restaurant.

Came for restaurant week, apparently they had decided to not offer lunch on Saturday after I had already booked my reservation, I was never notified. They still honored it, but i saw 3 groups leave because they had not been informed either. The manager was constantly staring at us and made the meal very uncomfortable. A medium-well steak came back beyond well done. My pork stew was good, but nothing amazing. They had decided to rent out half the restaurant for a baby's birthday, complete with, according to our waiter, a petting zoo coming later, something that I couldn't believe was happening at an upscale french restaurant. Would not recommend and do not intend to visit again

Very sparse waiter service, only one waiter & inattentive at that for the entire large rear dining area, many busboys, pouring water, rolls.
Also waiter not friendly, accomodating or helpful. Never had a smile & was rather perfunctory & curt....affected our wonderful feeling of the ambiance & view. Also salmon main dish for 3 of us was just warm & had to be sent back, he wasnt happy but got the busboy to do it.
It was much better when it was returned. Meal was very well presented & tasty. Excellent choices available for restaurant week

Over all the options available were comprehensive. Steak tartare worked well for appetizer, the salmon dish as a main gave a very nice portion of salmon but was definitely over cooked. Dessert was typical for French style but was a nice end. Waiters mucked up our order severaltimes trying to bring the wrong dish at Least three times. Overall, nice but wouldnt return

There was a wonderful selection of all 3 courses for lunch at Restaurant Week at Miel. The food was excellent with beautiful presentations.

The waiter forgot to bring a second round of bread when requested.

But the most disturbing was that this reservation was made a month ago, yet we had the worse table situated in the restaurant right by the front door with everyone walking all around us. I had requested a month ago a quiet, side or corner table and when I reminded the staff of that, they said they were busy with restaurant week and that was the only table available.

Miel was a unexpected find and what a pleasant surprise! The decor and high ceilings make this easily one of the nicest restaurants in Boston. We only went there for dinner but I am sure that during the day this location is also beautiful. The food was delicious and not disappointing by any means. I'd suggest the Bijou du Vermont as a salad and for those who love meat it is hard to miss the short ribs or the brandt steak. We've been told they have a nice brunch, can't wait to go back!

Highlights of the meal were the dorade fish entree and, no kidding, the focaccia from the bread basket, which tasted lightly sweetened with honey. Service and plating was a bit awkward at times (for example, no placemats and the entree was served in a deep dish that made it hard to use utensils with; waiter dropped a couple things and had to be reminded of my wine order), and I was underwhelmed by the chocolate torte with olive-oil ice cream. Both were passable and had good texture, but I couldn't taste the olive oil in the ice cream! Still, this place excels at seafood and has interesting choices you don't find in many other restaurants. Very good choice for a business dinner---our guest had the prix fixe, good value.
