The staff, atmosphere, and patisseries were wonderful, the lunch not so much. The Chicken Pot Pie was very heavy on potatoes and peas, very lite on the chicken. Also, it had a mashed potato top crust rather than pastry and no bottom crust at all,...More

Very nice restaurant. Seating is comfortable. Service is cordial and paced perfectly. Our lunch was delicious and the prices are reasonable given the location. Definitely will revisit.

An annual tradition to dinner here for the show starts. The menu is full of traditional french country style dishes. It is also a bakery so over the top deserts.

We had dinner with friends at this delightful Carmel eatery and thoroughly enjoyed it. Classic French country cooking at a very reasonable price, beautifully presented and amiably served. The salmon en papillote was superb, and the desserts are to mourir for! The restaurant is also...More

I thought this restaurant was very good, not great, but a good, reasonably priced meal. As others have said, the dining room was very pretty and comfortable. The brie appetizer was just OK, you could not really taste the brie, but the red onion marmalade...More

The reason it's called the Boissiere (they are playing down this name now) is that it was owned for decades by a French couple of that name. It used to be reliably good, and physically it hasn't changed much. The food is worse than undistinguished....More

Here is their phone number (831) 624-5008. They only take reservations for dinner, apparently. Google it, look at website, refer to dinner menu.

A relaxing and comforting venue modeled after a European chateau where tables are thoughtfully spaced and fresh flowers, fireplace, candles and soothing musical notes are integral part of the dining experience. The ambience sets the tone for French country food served with a great deal of care for detail, and pastries baked daily on premises. Dining room is available for private dinner parties.
