    This is one of the most fabulous restaurants to open in a long, long time. The food is over the top and the presentation and service is even better. Attention to detail is notable, for example, the milk served with coffee is first warmed and comes out in a heated small pitcher . Where else can you find banana foster soufflé on a menu which is to die for!!!!! Expensive but worth the experience.

    Went as a party of 5 on a Tuesday evening and all enjoyed their salads (caesar and beet) , entrees (included risotto, chicken, fish, and duck) and desserts. Found a bottle of cabernet for $60 that was very nice (most were pricier). Service was exceptional as our needs were anticipated and we were not rushed nor neglected. Would definitely go again - even though it's almost an hour from my home.

    One of the best dining experiences we've had in a long time. They hit the top marks in every category, but the food really stands out here! Very creative and beautifully presented. If you are a foodie you'll love this place! Quiet enough to actually have a conversation without screaming to each other. We will definitely be back many times!

    We were excited to try this because so close, and Boca has few fine and no other French restaurants... but for $40-55 per entree, I expect truly gourmet dining, as well as impeccable service, and LNM fell short of that, by just a bit on both counts. Food was quite good, but not equal to similarly priced restaurants in NY, Boston, or San Francisco. Service was a bit (slightly) rushed and the server was not as familiar with the menu as he should have been. Had the entrees here been in the $30-40 range I would have been very satisfied.

    My three pet peeves at an expensive restaurant: Shuffled off to the bar to wait for my reserved table for 30 minutes; an exorbitantly high corkage fee--in this case $40--and I was told by the sommelier that that is per 750ml., so the magnum that I was intending to bring would have been $80; a noise level that made casual conversation extremely difficult All three were unfortunately present at this restaurant. The food was excellent--the duck the best I have had. A very knowledgeable sommelier who picked the right bottle for the table after talking with us. I expected high prices, great presentation and great food. On these points the restaurant delivered. The water and bread service was not as good as the main service.

    We looked forward to dining at this new " French" Restaurant since its sister eatery, Trattoria Romana is one of our all time Italian favorites. Neither the menu, the staff nor the background music was really French......only the name was. The mussels were excellent. The onion soup was tasty but so hot that it took ten minutes before it was edible. The lamb chops were of excellent quality but were served with an assortment of unrecognizable vegetables. The linguini in the lobster and pasta dish was of a pasty consistency. The wait staff was pleasant and the decor was nice with very comfortable chairs but the noise level was irritating. All in all, our dining experience at La Nouvelle Maison left a lot to be desired.

    I always liked teachers who gave an "A" for effort, so if that's the criteria, La Nouvelle Mason gets an A. But if you're grading based on food, ambience and service, the report card would probably be a solid line of B's. This is a loud restaurant. And by loud, I mean really, really loud. It is difficult to believe that a brand new restaurant was built without any sort of sound dampening material at all. Hanging French bread from the ceiling would be an improvement from the complete and total lack of sound dampening that exists now. This must be dealt with. You will not have a romantic meal at this restaurant until the sound situation is improved. The food is fine. You'd hope for more, but this is not a must visit for foodies.

    It's touted as a French restaurant but more of a nondescript place that has French items on its menu. I was looking forward to the pate. It was a totally bland tasteless flavorless pate with water added...thin, runny "pate soup." All items we tried were totally missing flavor except chicken. Steak frites was ok but over cooked. Service was great. Very overpriced wine menu. Pretty decor. Wouldn't rush back. It needs a personality and flavor.

    Fake french............Onion soup should have the onions more brown and definitely gruyere cheese and not such a thick layer.Escargot should not have the brioche bread on top just a cheap gimmick........Also in the Menu they call Starters or Appetizers as PREMIER COURS which is a total invention and not correct french.They should try the food at the GAZEBO for some french flair!!!!!!!!!However, very nice decor and excellent service!!!!!!

    The food is superior--but the noise level in our section of the restaurant was abominable. There are other areas that are less noisy. But overall the architects failed to provide sound absorbing features such as wood and textile surfaces. In the room we were in everything is a hard hard surface so it reflects and amplifies sound to a great degree.

    La Nouvelle Maison is a welcome addition to the Boca culinary scene. It is remarkable that so many people, upon hearing the name, recall the long gone La Vieille Maison, a centerpiece of old Boca restaurants, and assume that it is a continuation of that store. It is a different restaurant group altogether; though it perpetuates much of the quality and class of the former Maison yet updated and edgier. The food is excellent, with nice caviar choices, and the back of the house is talented. The young sommelier is both knowledgeable and experienced - he lives his profession. It has a perfectly sized bar and the bartender is an excellent and friendly mixologist. Guests are welcomed from the hostess and manager to the servers. It is a winner.

    This fabulous new French restaurant was needed in this location! The food was prepared to perfection, unlike some French cuisine which can be heavy and drowning in rich sauce. La Nouvelle Maison managed to stay true without being heavy. The banana foster soufflé was the most fantastic dessert that I ever experienced!

    We went with another couple for dinner and were very impressed by the decor, the beautiful bar, the separate dining areas, the service and, especially the food. The menu is very nice, and has items that you don't see in every restaurant you go to. The presentation of the food was also beautiful. It is definitely a little pricey, but c'mon, it's a fancy French restaurant in Boca, of course it's going to be a little pricey..but not overboard, and we definitely left feeling that we had a great dining experience.

    This new East Boca restaurant is a winner right off the bat. The friendly and attentive staff made our night an enjoyable one. The first coarse Florida salade and special of the day, beet salad, were very eye appealing and tasted as good as they looked. Entree special, yellow tail snapper, was prepared supurb. My dates Lobster madeline fettucini was good , but the lobster tail was whole instead of being cut into madelines as read on the menu. Our risotto logostino middle coarse we share was good , but needed more seafood in our opinion. The assorted desert choice was great with our after dinner drinks and coffee. Having been open for just two weeks, the entire staff did a great job and will do just fine when the busy season returns.

    Certain my review will be in the minority, but I must report based on my experience. Evening started well with a table in the room requested, but waiter set a negative tone. So inattentive after providing menus that I requested a change in server - have never done that before! The sommelier Scott had a dismissive demeanor. FLORIDA salad was delicious, light, tasty. The CAESAR salad was bland, with one tiny anchovy. The DUCK pate was superb. The SEARED BLACK COD was the highlight entree, NY STRIP a winner as well. The FLORIDA ROCK SHRIMP RISOTTO tasted from chlorine, I should have sent it back. Ambience is attractive, crowd is overdressed/over made-up to impress, but there are enough folks like this to keep them busy, I am sure.

    Restaurant just opened and waiters, managers, rest of staff were all tripping over each other. Bread, although tasty, was served in a white paper bag. Not appropriate for nighttime fine dining. Table was too small for our party of four. Restaurant is pretty but has a very claustrophobic feel to it. The dining area to the right upon entrance was very noisy and extremely closed in. Nouvelle Caesar salad had no flavor and parts of it was mushy. We will probably give it one more try, but not until next season.
