4 Fabulous French Restaurants in Boston
So many great Boston restaurants and so little time. If French food is your thing, these four Boston restaurants have that...and more!
Some say French food is the tastiest and most flavorful of all culinary offerings. A plate of expertly prepared French food made with the finest of ingredients, the best cheeses, and served with a refreshing glass of champagne is an unbeatable taste experience. Whether you agree with that statement or not, these four of Boston's finest French restaurants will make you a believer in the utter deliciousness of French food!
1. La Voile
The upscale La Voile has a large menu of wines and some of the most popular French classics from escargot to a caramelized French onion soup. Widely known for their decadent dessert menu, try a sweet treat paired with the perfect wine. If you try their "Taste of France" three-course meal, you can select an appetizer, a French-favorite entree, and top off the feast with La Voile's dessert of the day.
Most great French meals come with a price, but La Voile doesn't have the typical French restaurant prices. Do expect, however, to pay about 25% more than you would at a typical restaurant (this restaurant is so fantastic you won't mind paying a little extra).
La Voile also makes for a great place to take a date!

Deuxave, a fancy and pricey restaurant, creates some of Boston's most delicious meals. Entrees may cost three or four times more than the average restaurant, but it's worth every penny! If you're looking for a more affordable option, perhaps you'll order one of Deuxave's delicious appetizers, especially if you just want something small. Some of Deuxave's most popular appetizers are 9 Hour French Onion Soup and especially their Scituate Lobster with Gnocchi, which is beautifully displayed in the picture below.
If you're brave enough to pay $28-47 for an entree, you won't be disappointed. One popular dish their Spiced Long Island Duck Breast consisting of Lentils du Puy with Arugula, Baby Turnips, and Sauce Robert. Don't skip out on a dessert alcoholic beverage along with a matching dessert - try Spiced Pumpkin & White Chocolate Soufflé or the Dark Chocolate Cremeux!

3. Bistro du Midi
Bistro du Midi is a very nice French restaurant; comfy and laid-back with a broad range of prices. Faroe Island Salmon, Autumn Squash Soup, and their Fluke are all for reasonable restaurant prices whereas some of their other dishes ranging from Pâté & Charcuterie Selection to their Ribeye are on the higher end. Either way, Bistro du Midi does not mess around - excellent food is what they have and will always serve! Some dishes may take longer than others to reach your table, so a perfectly served meal from Bistro du Midi requires a bit patience. After you take the first bite of your dish, you won't be disappointed!
One happy Bistro du Midi customer said, "If the food doesn't make you want to come here, the atmosphere should. If you are a fan of a slightly dim and sophisticated atmosphere, this place is for you. It is sure not to disappoint."
Bistro du Midi is also a great spot for formal dinners and dates, that is if you don't mind the wait. Some customers go as far as to say that Bistro du Midi's Chocolate soufflé is enough to keep them coming back, which should tell you that this restaurant has some great chefs!
