FAB FRENCH FOOD...BEST OF BOSTON! If your eyes and mouth love to feast on the French, L'Espalier is the high end Boston restaurant for you. Their attention to detail, from pan to plate, is unparralelled. HINT: You can watch their chefs from "behind the scenes," in their own kitchen, creating their mouth watering masterpieces. The he Prudential Mall offers continuous viewing via a glass wall. BONUS: Their kitchen offers the best view via their CHEF'S TABLE! It's the perfect place to privately celebrate any special occasion! (...while on display for 100s of strange shoppers & foreign tourists.)

We don't live in Boston and visited only two high class restaurants here so far - Clio and L'espalier. Atmosphere and service is better in L'espalier. Food and wine are ok, not really delicious in both places. What was for sure the best in L'espalier: cheeses! But desert was unbelievable BAD:(

Good restaurant but for the price point and positioning it is only okay. Service, food and wine are mediocre. Specialty, pre-order strawberry shortcake was good; not too sweet. Don't expect a (one star) Michelin experience.

Marvelous food and service from start to finish. We go here almost every time we go to Boston. French cuisine is delightful, cheeses are wonderful. Wines and cocktails and desserts are perfect compliments.

It's really pricy but worth it because the food was tasty and great. The service was ok, but I would still give it 5 stars for great food!

Underwhelming mediocre food at a high price. Meh is the first word that comes to mind. I have no problem with paying high for amazing food, but this was mediocre at best. Tried the Journey Menu... Dishes did not pair well and dessert was bird seed to be kind. Most expensive indigestion ever. Cheese plate was incredible as was the Fromager and Sommelier. Atmosphere was tainted by the group loudly arguing about their Greek Roots the last few courses and the service did nothing to quiet the VERY LOUD give you an idea, I had to lip read to understand my husband sitting across from me! Hop in a cab and head to Bergamot in Somerville for better food and service. Very disappointed all around.
