  • Jeremy K.Boston's finest French, high end restaurant. Expensive but definitely worth it. Fresh, seasonal and always delicious.

  • Boston.comLong known as a place to get engaged, L'Espalier sees about one proposal a month. That means 300 marriages have been launched in the Gloucester Street townhouse occupied by the restaurant.

  • Boston.comThis bastion of New England-French cuisine now serves in modern digs adjacent to the Mandarin Oriental. It's a splurge, but seasonal degustations and chef's tasting journeys offer bang for the buck.

  • Bradley ADo the chef tasting you won't be disappointed

  • Boston MagazineOur 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.

  • Mark M.Great wine, but even better beer (ask for the white-label Chimay!)

    55555 by Mark M.

  • Gilt CityL’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.

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

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

  • Stephen H.Try a $60 Monday wine night meal!

    55555 by Stephen H.

  • Bon Appetit MagazineHave 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.

    55555 by Bon Appetit Magazine

  • Stephen C.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.

  • Razorfish Client SummitL’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.

  • Noel F.Do not miss their wine dinners. Best meal I've had in my life! Well worth the price.

    55555 by Noel F.

  • Tony P.Go here and get the vegetable degustation. Be prepared to spend at least $100 a plate, but it's the best meal in Boston.
