After a shared entree , our mains and a dessert each we both left the place feeling still hungry. I had the duck which was the size of a Mac Donald chip.

The owner/ front of house manager this old Paris attitude and rudeness to customers is cool. She needs to go back to Paris because its not like thta now they could teach Boire a thing or two about customer treatment

It was our first visit to Boire and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent. The menus is small, seasonal and changes daily. The service was fine. We relied on Catherine for wine choices and they matched the food we chose perfectly. We felt like we were back in a bistro in Paris....sigh!
