The setting was warm, comfortable, and friendly. The service was very good. The staff were unpretentious which is actually quite rare in Carmel. We were there for lunch. Now the food part: they serve comfort food...hot, savory, and delicious. It's the kind of food you'd cook for your family except here it was obviously prepared by a talented chef. I... More

I have been here perhaps 30 times, but the last twice the meal has been mediocre at best. They never have the artichokes anymore despite it being still on the menu. The service yesterday was weak, forgot part of my order. For the price I would expect much better.

Okay, I admit ... we've dined here more than once, and fortunately, TripAdvisor lets one write multiple reviews if one hasn't been to a place on back-to-back nights, or something like that. So with that full disclosure, I'm happy to write another very positive review of Patisserie Boissiere, a true gem in Carmel. It offers gracious, "old school dining" at... More

My wife and I had lunch here on a rainy day the Saturday after Thanksgiving. After waiting for 5 minutes for a table to clear we were seated in a nice table with lot's of natural light coming from skylights above. The room is quaint. Our hostess and waitress were very pleasant and helpful and we received excellent service. My... More

I have been going to this restaurant for about four decades. Other than a change in the pastries, when the French couple that owned it died in a car crash, the food has been remarkably consistent. There is adequate space between tables and the dining room is delightfully quiet, a rarity these days. They do not allow people to use... More

We stopped in today for a light lunch and were very pleased. Had salad and their onion soup. One of the best onion soups I have had and the salad was delicious. If we are back in the area, we will certainly. Go back.

After checking few places in Carmel, we found this one and it was really good! The onion soup was amazing! The Cob salad was great. And the cake for the dessert - chocolate mousse, was tasty. Recommended...

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.
