Bistro du Midi

Bistro du Midi's cuisine features the authentic flavors of Provence and the South of France, thoughtfully prepared and guided by the talents of Executive Chef Robert Sisca. We feature an extensive award-winning wine list, and offer it all in a relaxed environment overlooking Boston's beautiful Public Garden. A street level cafe features floor-to-ceiling windows, and in the spring and summer our patio provides some of the most optimal al fresco dining in the city.

"Got the fixed-price, pre-theater meal. Allows you to select from the entire menu and seemed a very good deal. Came with half-price valet but that required some negotiation with the valet. Atmosphere, service, and food were great. Very short walk to the theater district. Couldn't have been more convenient."

"It was the night before my birthday. We live on Cape Cod so coming to Boston for us was a big deal. We have great restaurants down here as well but we like to get off the Cape to experience Boston. Our waitress, Micheala, sorry if I spelled it wrong, was outstanding. We had a 5:30 reservation and we sat upstairs in her area. We were not rushed, she explained the menu to perfections, suggesting a la carte items to us, and we had a great view of the Gardens. The dessert that came out was Mascarpone Beignets and she told your pastry chef to write Happy Birthday in chocolate on it which really made it so special as I just mentioned casually as it was my birthday. Anyway we were staying at The Taj and this dinner made our whole weekend.
We will definitely be back! Jim and Katie Forker Please tell her we had a great time.

"We went for a pre-theatre meal so the place was mostly empty when we arrived. The food was uniformly excellent and our waiter was very friendly and informative while we were ordering and made himself available without being overbearing during our meal. It's on the expensive side but worth it for an occasional splurge."

"The food was delicious but appetizer portions were small.
Mushroom side dish was delicious.
Service was mediocre.
Spoons were forgotten for soup so soup go cold quickly.
Ambiance was charming - very cozy with snow blowing and fireplace on. Perfect on a cold winter night.

"We hadn't been here for a while and wanted to try this place again. We were pleasantly surprised, as the food and service was much better than the previous times we had been here. Everything was tasty, and a visual treat! Service was good, but not overbearing. The wait staff was knowledgable about their wine selection and helpful in making good choices. We'll definitely be back!"

"Bistro du Midi strikes a balance between classic French- style fine-dining and modern American platings. The food is elevated but not overly heavy (French-style can sometimes mean way more butter than any one dish should carry). The room was nicely appointed and comfortable; refined but not stuffy. Service was absolutely fabulous! I appreciated the host stand being at street level, with the dining room upstairs; lends an air of exclusivity which is enticing rather than off-putting, as you are led up to the dining room. The dining room itself sits at tree-level, rather than street level, which adds a whimsical charm in any season. A warm fireplace crackling away, wine flowing, plates being delivered and cleared with quiet grace; everything about the atmosphere feels well thought out and well executed. The fare is solid. I tried two crudo dishes, the yellowfin and the venison were both good. My date had the endive salad, which was delicious. I enjoyed the duck for the entree, which was very good, beautifully presented, and perfectly cooked. My date had the goat cheese gnocchi, which had a perfect texture and a nice, rich flavor. Cocktails were a touch on the sweet side (we both prefer a more herbacious, even bitter palate for mixed drinks). Wine list was very impressive and well-balanced. I dined here at the recommendation of a few friends. Was not disappointed and will return. My only critique of the food is I thought the dishes could have used a little more punch. The basil creme under the yellowfin was a little too soft on the palate for me. I would have liked a more pronounced citrus or acid to counteract the sweetness of the fish and the softness of the creme fraiche. (Maybe some flash pickled celery root mixed in with the crudo? Or more lime in the basil creme?). Similarly, the venison was good, but just missed being great, for me. There was nice textural contrast to the dish but not enough contrast in flavor, for my palate. Next time, chef's tasting menu!"

"From ambiance, to service and food, the restaurant was perfect! My sisters, mom and I continued to comment on various aspects of the restaurant throughout our meal; the decor, the food, the noise level and service too. Our waiter even spent time talking and laughing with us.
We were celebrating my birthday. The restaurant, in a special way, provided us desert on behalf of a close family friend who called ahead of time.
Just about 24 hours after my first meal at Bistro Du Midi, I made another reservation...my husband and his parents, big foodies, must experience it too!

"Bistro du Midi is one of the top 5 restaurants in Boston. The food is always spectacular, the service is outstanding, and the wine list is a novel. While their menu changes regularly, it is never difficult to find something that is delicious. I've been here multiple times, and every dish has been stellar. And to add to that, a meal with appetizers, entrees and a bottle of wine for two was under $150. Strongly recommended. But not too strongly, because I still want to be able to get a reservation here in the future."
