Cafe Fleuri Ratings and Reviews

Our group form Brazil visited Boston for the first time and I had received excellent referrals about the restaurant. It was MORE THAN PERFECT!! We chose the lunch menu and everyone was pleased! I got the BEST LOBSTER MAC & CHEESE of my life! The group chose hamburgers, lobster roll and salads - all excellent!
We loved the ambience, the delicious chocolate smell (next time we will go for the chocolate Bar) and I enjoyed so very much everything that had decided to go back again for Christmas. Coming from NY! Yes! Because you guys were amazing! Thank you so very much! All the group loved the experience! Sending my compliments to everyone! Keep up with the great job!

We went to the fabled Saturday Holiday Chocolate Bar - an amazing, decadent selection of sweets. We timed our visit after a mid-morning brunch. Our servers were attentive, genuine, and great with the kids (of which there were lots of, all hopped-up on sugar). There was a jazz band and Santa for pictures to boot! Definitely an experience we will remember!

This was our third Thanksgiving at Cafe Fleuri. As before, some things were very good, some were bland at best. Preparing a vast feast for a large public audience is a challenge and no doubt the cooks didn't want to make things too well seasoned for majority tastes. That said, we tried many different dishes. The best dessert was the simplest, ice cream, while others were gummy. We've enjoyed it each time but thought last year it was expensive at $85. This year, at $110, it was over the limit and we won't be going there again for T-day.

10th wedding anniversary trip to the Chocolate Bar, and brought the kids!! Great experience. A little pricey, like most "all you can eat" if you can't eat a lot. Great variety, great ambiance w/ the jazz band going. Loud and excited people in attendance. I assume this is how "expensive" desserts taste, because it didn't have the same deep chocolate/sugary taste of your average pie/cake/fudge. Very creative selections, wide range of chocolate and non-chocolate options. I love chocolate, so that's mostly what I stuck to. Nothing was amazingly great that I got seconds of. Maybe would have had another Chocolate Chunk Cookie, they were warm and delicious. I think it was $40 a head, better value is probably $30, though including our kids ate free, came to about $20 a head. So maybe not that bad of a deal for us.

Chocolate bar: quite unremarkable. I've been to the chocolate bar several few times over a number of years and the conclusion is that the concept is interesting, but the chocolate options are not. It's produced in mass quantities so lower your expectations if you think you're going to have out of this world chocolate. I sampled about half of the options and nothing was remarkable or memorable; all of it was standard fare chocolate. It looks good, but taste? Just so-so. I was especially disappointed in the gluten free cupcakes: dry and tasted like sand paper. We sat on the side of the restaurant where the chocolate options are located and the space seems to be designed for large groups (think baby shower/girls brunch out, etc.) We sat next to one of those large groups and, eventually, moved away. The service was fine; though, they didn't do much. It is worth the cost? Probably not, but it's something different to do.

Second time for our party of 12 attending the Chocolate Bar Buffet (last visit 3 years ago).
The selection of small size and unique chocolate desserts was amazing and creative.
However, for $58 per person (included 18% tip and "administrative service fee $21----whats that????!!! No one mentioned it when I made reservations). This price did not include alcohol -- we felt the value was overpriced for the amount of sweets that one really ate.
The chocolate fountain was delicious and high quality...most all desserts were excellent.
Some of the cake type pastries were spongy/dry and milk was room temp.
We had a 1:30 reservation and felt rushed as they close promptly at 3.

The ambiance, the variety, the attention to detail and excellent service all added up to be a wonderful way to spend an afternoon with friends - three grown women giggling like little girls over the indulgence of a meal of chocolate. Pure bliss!

The set up for seating was awful. Our table was across from the stairs. We felt like
we were in the hallway being punished. The food choices were many some selections were better than others. Sorry, not worth the price.

The brunch is great. Really good food. Amazing dishes of every kind. Many unique ingredients, a member of the nightshade family ive never seen (like a tomato), muhrooms, truffles, great meats local (and good! cheeses) great seafood, amazing deserts (candied violets, rosewater panna cotta) Local grapes (not even advertised as local necessarily, but very much like the concord wild variety)

Cesar salad with chicken, not a major challenge for any restaurant, and an Arnold Palmer (just fine) was $29, expensive and not particularly good. The ambiance is pleasant but the food is disappointing-overall not good value.

I was very disappointed that I could not order off the menu and was forced to buy the chocolate bar before I was allowed to order any "food." I made this appointment to have a wonderful lunch, not a dessert/insulin rush, weeks earlier. I would have made an appt for the Tea had I wanted exclusively sugar for my lunch. I came across the country for this special lunch and I do not remember the reservation saying it would be a chocolate bar lunch. Don't get me wrong, it was wonderful, and my hats off to the chef, but I ended up ordering actual FOOD after eating the chocolate, and not only was it very expensive, it was not a pleasant experience, gastronomically, afterwards. I have not eaten that much sugar in a loooooong time, maybe years.

Brunch at $75 per person should be exceptional and Cafe Fleuri did not disappoint. Located within the Langham Hotel, the ambiance is that of a fine European hotel diningroom. Staff are welcoming for the most part, the music is energizing without being intrusive, and the rooms are voluminous and pleasingly well lit. Our waiter was very nice but we could not hear him, not because of the noise in the room but because he was rushed and mumbling. He was very patient with our frequent interruptions but continued to mumble until we gave up and went to scope out the offerings for ourselves. And what a feast for the eyes! The food is presented in beautifully displayed, themed groupings. We especially enjoyed the seafood area and of course the dessert tables.

This was an excellent buffet brunch. The quality of food (seafood in particular) was high. The desserts were very interesting. There were many stations with something for everyone - even the youngest in our party. We appreciated that the children were free and we will definitely come again.

Cafe Fleuri has always been my favorite brunch spot and a to-go place whenever a friend comes to visit. Its Sunday buffet brunch and chocolate bar always has so much to offer at good taste and service. It also has wonderful live music performance on Sundays. I would recommend anyone to brunch there at least once, even if you just come to Boston for a short visit!

I have done two birthday celebrations at the Cafe Fleuri Chocolate Bar and both times the experience was excellent. The options will blow your mind - and every year (every season) the theme is different.
I do recommend eating something that does not contain chocolate before you go - sugar overload is bound to happen.
The chocolate buffet on Saturdays is one ...
The chocolate buffet on Saturdays is one of a kind, however there are virtually no salty options in the buffet (if you exclude popcorn and potato chips) which makes it a bit less interesting to most. The desserts available are incredible, however the steep price ($45 per person) should include more than just sweets.
