My husband and I recently had the supreme pleasure of dining at Patisserie Boissiere. We found the restaurant on line, prior to our trip to Carmel. From the moment we walked in we knew we had picked a winner. The staff was warm, friendly and very helpful. My husband had one of that night's specials which was shrimp and salmon... More

I asked this question of the hostess after being completely overwhelmed with the beautiful dessert case. She answered: The lemon cheesecake! We ordered a piece and it did not disappoint. If we didn't live 4 hours away I would have taken a piece of everything else to go.

it is so French! It is quiet, refined and not expensive. A great place for lunch. We try to have lunch there every time we are in Carmel.

I arrived in late evening and was looking for something close ... and tasty. I chose this one by browsing Trip Advisor.The staff were very friendly and efficient. I had French Onion Soup followed by Chicken Pot Pie. Both were very savory. The soup was very good. I could have made a nice meal with it and bread. The pot... More

Fabulous bakery case with many choices. Waitstaff are warm, friendly and helpful. Super crowded when we visited but they kept up nicely. If you're in a hurry not the place for you. Relaxing and enjoyable.

We saw this place on a busy lunch time and decided to book a table for dinner - big mistake. I had the Brie to start and the onion marmalade which was overwhelmed with balsamic vinegar. My partner had French onion soup, which he said was pretty tasteless. As a vegetarian I was sad to hear that neither the onion... More

It was a cool day in Carmel, and we wanted hot drinks. We decided to go to Patisserie Boissiere. We selected our desserts but waited to be seated because some women thought we were invisible and barged ahead of us. When we finally got our table, the server promptly took our drink orders. Our espresso drinks were quite tasty. I'm... More

At first entry, the charm of this restaurant knocked us out: fire blazing in a tiled fireplace, Country French antiques and chotchkes, fleur-de-lys everywhere. We chose bœuf Bourguignon, presented in a ramekin and extremely savory; and coquilles St-Jacques. The latter was artfully arranged and the seafood cooked perfectly, but its sauce totally tasteless. To make matters worse, the accompanying rice... More

We ate here on our first night in Carmel. Excellent food. I had the chicken pot pie. It was creamy and thick with generous portions of chicken. It had mashed potatoes on top instead of the traditional pastry. I would have preferred the pastry, but the potatoes were good. We also had some very smooth house wine and a lovely... More

We were there for lunch. Be aware of sizable dishes, so don't order too much. Artichoces were excellent and compared to other dishes right sized for a starter.

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.
