This was perhaps the best meal I've had in Boston. It was a truly French experience. The waiters, the menu, the food, the wine, the architecture on Newbury Street and since we sat outside on a beautiful spring day, the ambiance was perfect. The entire experience was C'est Magnifique.
I dined with my mother, wife and my youngest daughter home from college. We ordered a bottle of Gosset Brut Champagne to celebrate my wife's birthday, mother's day and my daughters grade point average. They were out and offered us a bottle of pink Champagne. We were skeptical, but taking our waiters advice became a regular thing during this meal. The pink Champagne was delicious. The menu available online doesn't represent the menu we saw in the restaurant. So don't go there if you see something on the online menu and are expecting to order it. The salads were all very fresh and the dressings light and flavorful. The entrees were outstanding. My wife ordered the dover sole, brought to the table bone-in and they deboned it on a side tray. My wife reports it was outstanding. I ordered the pan seared beef tenderloins that they were prepared perfectly. My mother ordered the grilled rib eye with hand-cut pommes frites with beurre maitre d'hôtel - "To die for". And my daughter had the classic french veal stew which was delicious. Wines were selected with help from the waiter and both were very good. Desert was also excellent. My mother and daughter had the cream puffs with warm chocolate sauce, my wife had the warm pear tart and I had the cheese plate. After dinner coffee was perfect. The complementary after dinner drinks were a pleasant surprise. It was expensive. Party of four, with Champagne, two bottles of wine, three courses each and coffee came to $600. It was typical leisurely French dinning - the meal lasted 3 hours - and we had a great time. In my opinion, this was a reasonable price for a magnificent experience. I highly recommend La Voile on Newbury Street in Boston.
