I thought this restaurant was very good, not great, but a good, reasonably priced meal. As others have said, the dining room was very pretty and comfortable. The brie appetizer was just OK, you could not really taste the brie, but the red onion marmalade...More

The reason it's called the Boissiere (they are playing down this name now) is that it was owned for decades by a French couple of that name. It used to be reliably good, and physically it hasn't changed much. The food is worse than undistinguished....More

My husband and I walked up-and-down the main drag of Monterey several times until finally coming upon this amazing hidden little gem. When you walk in, it looks like grandmas dining room. Linen tablecloths, mix and matched chairs, quaint decor, friendly staff and an amazing...More

Stopped in bc we were looking for a sweet treat after lunch and walking around Carmel. We got a chocolate ganauch cake and a chocolate eclare. Both very good but too cold. I suggest letting the pastry sit just a bit before diving in. Flavors...More

The chicken pot pie has mashed potatoes on top instead of a crust. More like a Shepard's pie. Very small serving. Was O.K. Seafood sandwich- good flavor of seafood but the baguette it came on wasn't a quality crusty French baguette, this is cheap over-processed...More

Great food, service, and ambiance. Had a delicious, mouth watering dinner. Everything was perfect. Delicious soup and main courses, and the desserts are out of this world. The house French wine was quite good. The owner spoke with us and invited us back. Please, please...More

I do hate to leave a negative review. This review is partly for service and partly for the dessert. Walked to this restaurant to grab a few desserts. Middle age lady taking our order at counter was condescending and inept. Order was rung incorrectly and...More

We tried out this place for lunch last week while visiting Carmel. It's located a little off from the crowded main Ocean Ave, so it's not as busy as other restaurants on Ocean Ave which worked out great for us because we were a large...More

Here is their phone number (831) 624-5008. They only take reservations for dinner, apparently. Google it, look at website, refer to dinner menu.

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.
