Stuck at a less-then-great hotel and arriving late, we hade dinner here and it saved our trip. We thought it was 'French' but it's really much more complex than a classic French bistro. The menu was inventive if a bit confusing, and a word used at the table was 'pretentious' in a charming way. The service was great, our waiter... More

great food and extensive , unique, well thought out wine menu for the people who would appreciate the time and effort it takes. Dounstairs bar is vibrant with a good well dressed crowd of all ages. Upstairs fantastic room with just enough energy to keep you from boredom. I visit here every trip to Boston.

We visited du midi with a large group of colleagues and family. We had a very nice table upstairs. The service was near prefect. The decor and dining options classic upscale French. My wife and I shared roasted chicken. Food was very well prepared and we will be back on our next visit in Boston.

Visited Bistro du Midi in May for a birthday celebration. The dining room, on the second floor overlooks the Boston Public Garden, which was lovely in its new green colors . We have visited previously in June and also in the dead of winter after a snow storm and the view is always part of the overall experience. The food... More

It's a nice place with a nice location, but that's about it. The service was somewhat contrived. False snobbery never comes across well. The food was ok. If you are accustomed to eating bloody pork, you will be fine. I expected more. The wine list was just ok. I wasn't impressed. I'm not sure why someone would say that it's... More

Great place for Sunday brunch right near Boston Common. The brunch menu was not very extensive, but the food was great. I had the goat cheese and veggie quiche and it was excellent. I would order it again in a heartbeat. The service was great and our waiter was attentive. We didn't have a reservation and were very pleased to... More

We dropped in for a drink and stayed for dinner. Wine list is extensive. Some very pricy and some good values. Very attentive staff without hovering. Food fresh, tasty and well served.

The restaurant built on two floors, with an elevator . So no problem for anyone to get to the table. Ours was overlooking the public gardens , when I saw fountain and trees which were the best background ever. Our waiter,Trevis, although telling us he was new in the restaurant ,was knowledgable, friendly confident and a pleasure to talk to.... More

A great spot on Boylston. the food is really good and the service is impeccable and prompt. the place becomes truly abuzz especially on weekends , but du Midi gives one a cosy feeling .. The fare was faultless for us and the drinks and cocktails excellent. highly recommended.

My wife and I went here for Sunday brunch, and it was great. The food was high-end, and the setting overlooking the Public Garden was excellent. It is not cheap, so I would save it for special occasions or brunch splurges.
