I have only been to this restaurant twice but the food is always wonderful, the chefs always come and say hello. It's very authentic. Good portions and very beautiful desserts.

We usually dine at Mexican, Chinese, Japanese or steak restaurants. Being Italian, I'm not really into eating at Italian places when I can usually cook it better myself. OK, I'll admit it, I've always been intimidated by French restaurants. We've only been to two other French restaurants in 30 years. They were both stuffy & the staff was snooooty. I... More

Been there twice and it's all been good. Basic bistros food + some interesting creative numbers. Killer delish squash bisque with coffee bean dusting and desert "special".

From the lavender decorating the bar between the tables and the cash register to the front windows, the ambiance is as attractive as anything I enjoyed in France. The owner was engaging to talk with, the food excellent, the service perfect, the dessert choices incredible. I was taken there for a birthday dinner by my friend - I've not received... More

I bought the Got Daily Deals coupon for Au Midi Restaurant and Bistrot in Aptos. We find that getting these coupons, as well as Groupons, is a good way for us to try restaurants that we normally wouldn’t go to. We have made some good discoveries of local eateries this way. Au Midi is one of those discoveries. The décor... More

Au Midi is almost an hour away but we make the trip in happy anticipation. This is not a restaurant that beckons you with a great setting or fabulous decor, rather , you come to dine. As you can tell from reading the other reviews, it is all about ordering the right thing. Three dishes are absolute standouts- the Mussels,... More

This is my third time at Au Midi. Both times before were very nice. This time the kitchen sent out the wrong salad for my wife. I had the sweetbread appetizer which I finished well before they brought the correct salad for her. Probably a 20 minute wait. No excuse for that. She ultimately liked her salad which was a... More

We enjoyed an excellent meal at Au Midi in Aptos. A casual bistro with serious food and a sincere and warm reception. Beautifully presented, clear precise flavors and creative preparations. Very reasonable wine prices. Beet and Goat Cheese Mousse not to missed. A "meaty" mussel dish with tomato, wine and cream, Bright and light hand with the halibut. Desserts- apple... More

Muriel's entrees are amazing! The French influence is especially prevalent in her sauces, so deliciously complex. We love dining at Au Midi. Michel is a gracious and friendly host. You can tell that Au Midi is a labor of love.

This incredible dish is beyond belief. The chef and her husband (the maitre d') make the perfect host and chef. It's simply terrific and should be enjoyed before it's constantly sold out!
