My family and I have been going to Patisserie Boissiere for over thirty years and I can honestly say we've only had wonderful meals and great, warm service with every visit. They have hands down the best french onion soup we've tasted outside of France. The ambience is inviting and charming as if you're eating in a friend's home. And... More

I don't remember ever eating at a French restaurant in my life, except when I went to France in 1977, so this is a new experience for me. Not too many French restaurants in my area of the Silicon Valley. We read about some good reviews of this French restaurant in Carmel, and give it a try. The restaurant is... More

My company help the annual Christmas party at the Patisserie Boissiere this year. The service was absolutely perfect. The food was out of this world, in a warm cozy environment! I am a picky individual, and this place is just awesome! TRY IT!

This is my favorite place for dinner in Carmel! There are a great variety of entrees, all well prepared and reasonably priced. The soups are excellent, and the stuffed mushrooms are a wonderful appetizer. Their freshly baked pastries are also delicious. I love the old world charm of the intimate dining room. We often bring guests here because the atmosphere... More

I've been here for dinner with my family several times now, and each time I had a wonderful experience. The food is absolutely delicious, and the ambiance is magical. (I like to sit at one of the tables by the fireplace, where I have a good view of the beautiful Christmas tree.) The service is very personable, everyone has always... More

This cheery classical French dining room creates a back drop of ambience that is exceeded by the excellent food so beautifully presented. I could write pages on quality of all food selections, and the beyond compare pastries!

I took a group of girlfriends out for afternoon tea. We ended up ordering all sorts of things and everyone loved the food, the service, the ambiance. My friends have all gone back since and keep talking about how much they love it.

We were here last week for my birthday, and again, they did not disappoint. Service was excellent and the food superb. It's always a special treat to spend a very relaxing evening here, and I will continue to recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone. And the great surprise is that it's not overpriced like so many of the Carmel... More

We went to this restaurant almost by chance during our first trip to Carmel. Someone in the group mentioned it as being good so we decided to give it a try for a quick lunch. The place is very cute with white tablecloths, fresh flower on each table and nice French chansons playing. The service in this little restaurant is... More
