Great old style French dine
My husband, Stu, and I booked the 10 course tasting at the Chef's Table in the kitchen to celebrate his birthday.
We were seated on comfortable chairs at a counter overlooking all of the action. Our dedicated server for the evening, Megan, was a sheer delight from start to finish. We can't praise her highly enough. I ordered the wine pairing. There wasn't a single bite of food or sip of wine that we didn't enjoy enormously.
Amuse-bouches then farm fresh egg with Osetra caviar. J Lassalle Preference non-vintage champagne
Salad of yellow beets, fines herbes and raw spring vegetables with chevre. 2014 Philippe Gourdon "Les Amendiers" Chenin Blanc.
Tender seared scallops with squid, fennel, mustard greens and bone marrow broth. 2016 Lagler Gruner Veltliner from Austria.
Grilled Maine lobster with confit hazelnuts, roasted strawberries, pico de gallo and toasted nori. 2012 Meursault "Les Tillets" from Hubert Bouzereau-Gruere.
Torchon of foie gras with blistered peaches, apricots and cherry-Sauternes jam with 2015 Coteaux de Layon Rablay
After a refreshing palate cleanser, salmon with lemon fennel puree and bok choy shoots. 2017 Goblesburg rose.
Squab with a buttermilk "risotto" and liver vinaigrette. 2014 Meo-Camuzet Bourgogne
Pineland Farms sirloin with lime sesame vinaigrette, ginger potato pave and Australian truffle. 2015 Chateau de Montmal.
Cheese course with well chosen accouterments. 2015 Cidrerie du Vulcain, Poire.
Delicious dessert (forgot what). 2015 Braida, Brachetto d'Acqui, a slightly sparkly sweet red. They also served a sweet little cupcake with a candle to fete Stu, as well as a small selection of mignardises, which I enjoyed with espresso.
During the course of the meal Chef McClelland came over to chat with us and some of the team also came by. It was a relaxed but totally high end fine dining experience. We couldn't have chosen a better restaurant, it really made Stu's birthday special!
Great tasting experience with wine pairing for a special night out!
I found this place by accident and uncovered a true gem. This place is officially on my list for every visit to Boston.
Wait staff confused between menus of evening and expressed wants by phone. Moved twice from one room to another due to confusion
Food , while very good, enormously over priced. Less value than what we enjoyed years ago.
Wait staff somewhat naive yet supercilious.
Great food but Bizarrely expensive, I have been to french restaurants around the world including Paris but not as expensive as this one. Cheese plate portion is ridiculously small, cheese was all from Vermont which I never knew they produced such great cheese. Very weird bill which included additional charges not on the menu, I paid around 500$ and we were only two.
The combination of fine dining and yet friendly and relax feeling
The food was delicious. They also accommodated our many allergies with good dishes not just replacements. We really appreciated that!
Having been here my last time in Boston I was excited to go back and even brought additional NY friends with me. Unfortunately the minute we stepped off the elevator, we were hit with a wave of hot air. The air-conditioning was not working and we were not notified prior to our arrival. Having a lovely dinner in a horribly hot setting with poor service was not what I was looking forward to. I will not be back
This is a very posh and sophisticated French restaurant and I had a great time. The staff I met are all super professional and friendly.
Exquisite dining with fine food, excellent service, spectacular wine list with matching $$. Worth it for someone special. Wish I had known that there really were only 3 choices - chef’s choice and either a 5 or8 course menu.
Outstanding outstanding and outstanding. The level of detail, the wine matching and the service. Highly recommended...
Came here for my birthday dinner and it was absolutely amazing!!! We got the no. #1, 8 course meal and every bite was incredible. Service was impeccable. Had a pre dessert, actual dessert and they gave us a post dessert as we left. Also gave me an adorable lemon poppy cupcake!
Elegant dining with fixed menus. Enthusiastic servers. Nice atmosphere. Aircon was overly aggressive so we were cold
the room was very cold we had to ask for the ac to be reset
despite that a lovely evening, great flavors and food .
kind of wish we could order off a menu instead of 12,8 or 5 course meal
Great service from beginning to end. Excellent food. They tried really hard to please my picky 10 and 12 year old children. Thank you and we will be back.
The service is thoughtful and the food is exquisite
The food was awesome!! The best. And I have eaten ana lot of very nice places
Service was so poor we could not enjoy the meal. Our head waiter could not have been less attentive. When he showed up, he never addressed my wife, only me. After he first took our order he never came back to the table, I had to ask another waiter to order another glass of wine. All the waiters served me first from water to bread to each course, then served my wife. In addition, service was so forced, stiff and uncomfortable. Bottom line, a wasted evening.
Pretty mediocre for major expense. Lady in front area who handled seating seemed put out. Wine steward was not gracious nor especially knowledgeable (Bob was great however). Noisy. But food is fantastic. Wine pairings about a B- with nothing special. Won’t go back.
Execellent service, excellent food!! Would recommend it 100%. Little bit expensive, costs $216/person (degustation menu with wine pairing). We had a great time
I am disappointed that the service was not as respectful as I remembered, the last time we dined at this restaurant. When I pointed out the year of the bottle of wine that was brought to our table was different from the one listed on the menu, the staff person stated, does it really matter to you? My daughter and I were minimized as serious diners ... we will not be recommending or returning.
Impeccable, as always. Looking forward to return.
Great Food & Service .
Beware the valet parking is a joke.
You are better off parking your own auto.
Wedding celebration for my wife and me, we had a great experience over there.
We had a wonderful Sunday brunch for my partner's birthday. We chose the Degustation de Printemps, which is a 5-course prix-fixe for $68 a person. Everything was exquisite, and the service was great. The combination of tastes and the lovely presentation made it a special meal for a special occasion.
Only one minor complaint: we were served about 3 ounces of juice, so we ordered a second serving each. The total cost for the juice alone was $40! Unnecessary, when our two pots of tea only cost $16.
Our family of four came for Sunday lunch and we absolutely enjoyed it. Everything’s great and tasty!
Anniversary. Very nice.
Amazing experience. 5 course tasting menu, beautifully presented and exquisite flavor.
The food was outstanding. Simple as that. You do have to be prepared to drop a large amount of money all at once, though, especially if you order wine, so keep that in mind before visiting.
3 different menus: 5, 7, and 13 courses. We did 7, and it was worth it.
Delicious but very very very expensive.
Very expensive but excellent. You get what you pay for.
Best service and food dining experience in quite a while in the US.
Creative food, tasting menus only. Dinner ranges from $98 per person to twice that, before wine and tip.
My partner and I went here while we were in town, as we like to visit L'Espalier anytime we're remotely close to Boston. We enjoyed a relaxed, well-paced, 3.5-hour Chef's tour tasting lunch with juice pairings. A fun time, wonderful service, and interesting, delicious food. It was so much fun to do this before heading to the airport to fly home.
Food outstanding. Service fair.
Food as presented looked wonderful. Something was off, however. Both of us became ill. Service was as usual, marvelous. The caviar and its presentation was superior to just about all
Great foods with how the chef put the seasoning perfectly.
The Tasting Menu is a Must!. The creativity and quality of the food were outstanding. The service provided by the entire staff (start to finish) was second to none. The wine pairings were perfect and reasonably priced. I would recommend this restaurant - and its tasting menu to anyone that appreciates good food and great service.
service is ok,bit slow ,but staff are friendly.
Food just not live up to it is reputation
