When we are not in France, we are thinking about being in France! For those homesick for the old country, this is an address you should have in mind. Clearly, great effort and expense have been employed, as well as a congenial wait staff, to evoke and replicate a genuine French bistro. The result is a tad generic, but so what. The chef knows what he is doing. The classic dishes are prepared with finesse and the wine list is extensive and almost reasonably priced.

We were there on a quiet early Sunday evening. I suspect it would (and should) be considerably busier during the week. On one visit, you can't try everything. Our beet salads, Duck Confit and desserts were all delicious and the Dauphinais Potatoes were splendid. No question, we will be back to try Mussels, Fish and other main courses. I would wish for a bit more extensive dessert repertoire, but there is always some good cheese to go with the wine, and some serious chocolate sauce to drip on top of the puff pastries and tarts.

An impressive effort, viewed by someone who spends a lot of time in France.

The only bad part about La Voile is the parking. We ended up parking
in the Prudential Center but it was worth the walk. Hidden away, down a flight of stairs, is an excellent French bistro. The food was quintessential French bistro cuisine. The service was efficient and friendly, definitely not pretentious nor rude nor absent; just right. Another successful restaurant week visit. We will definitely come here again.

Great location for this gorgeous french restaurant. Fully booked but service was exception. Food didn’t take long to come. We did the three course set menu for $45. To die for food.

On a beautiful day we had a pleasant lunch out on the patio. We shared the quiche and the risotto. The quiche wasn't a standard and was very tasty. They served fresh bread before the meal was served which was very good. While the portions were not large they were fine for a lunch.
