I am French, I live in the Beacon Hill and I am very picky about food and cheese, and Savenor has a good selection of both AND something rare in the US, the cheese are actually eatable! The service is very nice and friendly and the vegetables are fresh.
Hints: If you buy a French cheese (and any French product), it is mandatory in France to indicate the expiration date of the product (a consommer de preference avant) and not the ""best sale date""... if you see a product which expiration date was yesterday DON'T EAT IT, if you see a product where the expiration date do not appear or was hidden or removed, DON'T EAT IT.
I am shocked all the time I see this happen and it happens very often in other high-end grocery shops (check De Lucas on the other end of Charles Street if you want to see)

Having lived in France, I'm always looking for someplace where I can get GOOD cheese, preferably French, and Savenor's fits the bill. They have a good selection of cow, goat, and sheep's milk cheeses and generally have baguettes available (though they're not necessarily French-style ""croustillant"" baguettes). There's also a good selection of foie gras. All in all, it's a bit pricey, but worth the trip for an occasional gourmet treat.

exceptional quality veal, beef and lamb can be obtained here. The mutiflavored ravioli are Venda
ravioli from Providence and can be bought in Providence for half the price and they'll probably be fresher. Good selection of mushrooms, but much of its produce quality is no different then chain supermarkets.

It goes without saying that all the meat whether exotic or merely hamburger is fabulous. What makes the difference is the service. At Savenors, you get absolutly what you ask for..no matter how obscure a cut of meat you want. No point in being a foodie if you can't get the perfect ingredients. Heaven would be having Savenors next door to SouthEnd Formmagio right there on Charles St.
