Go early and take the chef's Tasting Journey with wine pairings
by Mark H.
L'Espalier is revered for Frank McClelland's hybrid of French and New England cuisine, which makes extensive use of local, seasonal ingredients. Stop by for a Cheese Tuesday. [Eater 38 Member]

Unabashedly serves champagne and caviar and is unafraid of being fancy. [Eater 38 Member]
Our testers are constantly on the lookout for signs they’ve been noticed—too many “gifts” from the chef; a suspiciously good table. At L’Espalier, though, we can never tell. Read on for why.

Great wine, but even better beer (ask for the white-label Chimay!)
by Mark M.
L’Espalier has earned its reputation as a stalwart of haute cuisine: C.E.O. and Executive Chef Frank McClelland runs the only Boston restaurant to have won 12 consecutive AAA Five Diamond Awards.

Ultimate in French fine dining fare, but crafted with a New England influence. Linger over a multi-course lunch.

If you've never truly loved an amuse-bouche for everything it is, your world is about to change.

Try a $60 Monday wine night meal!
by Stephen H.
Have a glass of bubbly in the Salon before being shown to your window table, then feast on chef Frank McClelland's "Seasonal Degustation" menu. Be sure to save room for cheese.
by Bon Appetit Magazine
Bad place. Overpriced, pretentious and underwhelming food. Your money is better spent elsewhere. Christmas Eve prix fixe was a ripoff. Well appointed, but all front and no back.
by Stephen C.
L’Espalier is often credited with being the first independently owned restaurant to bring haute cuisine to Boston, with a trailblazing commitment to using local, fresh ingredients from New England.
by Razorfish Client Summit
Whether it's Wine Monday, Cheese Tuesday or their holiday specials you can't go wrong here. Amazing food.

Mini Burger Mondays! Every Monday from 5-7pm this joint's peddlin' $2 sliders and $5 small plates.
pre fixe is actually affordable . includes salmon among other things .
"The Journey" is a superb 12-course meal, with many unusual and exotic dishes. Plan four and a half hours!
by Michael K.
Do not miss their wine dinners. Best meal I've had in my life! Well worth the price.
by Noel F.
Go here and get the vegetable degustation. Be prepared to spend at least $100 a plate, but it's the best meal in Boston.
