Lowell is a town of immigrants. There were once so many French Cabadians a while section of the city was called "Little Cabada." But there was no French restaurant until La Boniche arrived about a decade ago. It's a miracle this place survived the decline of the city and lived to see its resurgence. But it's a welcom addition, featuring... More

I was in your restaurant tonight and have never experienced such horrid service in all my life. My friend arrived at 5:55 and I arrived at 6:05. When I arrived my friend was not even offered water in the 99 degree weather while sitting outside. At 6:15 she got up and spoke to the hostess and requested a server and... More

We stopped in this little old mill town with many renovated repurposed old factory buildings to take a break for a long road trip... Pleasantly surprised with a fantastic meal.. There is a reason this place has been serving up fine French quinine for 25 years. I had the spicy coconut salmon and it was a large portion of perfectly... More

The food is wonderful and varied. Something to please almost any palate. Service varies but bartender is great. I love their music nights and especially enjoyed our last dinner when Marieke Slovin performed. She is bluesy, folksy and also sings about Lowell.

We stumbled upon La Boniche on a cold February night and felt fortunate that they were able to seat us almost right away even though we did not have a reservation. The decor' has a country French feel; very cozy and tasteful. It looks like it's a pricey place, but the bill was very reasonable. The menu is a bit... More

Delicious! This restaurant is a hidden gem right on Merrimack Street. Great romantic place with a casual and sophisticated atmosphere making you feel you are in a great French restaurant. Waiter was very nice and we even met the owner. The roast duck dinner was delicious and the after dinner cordial was a great way to cap off the experience.
