Interesting choices on menu. Pleasant service and food was terrific.. Don't pass on the fries. Nice amuse bouche and great little bread basket. A lively mix of diners. Noise level a little high. Great choice for light dining or full meal located right by Lincoln Center.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't wait to go backI had lunch alone and they did not flinch. Great, unobtrusive service. Had the fixed price lunch and thought it was worthy of all the praise his establishments get. Took a tip from the NY Times and had the pate. Best ever. Can't really describe how it was rich, but not heavy. I don't usually go to the same places twice when there are so many i havent been to....but will have to repeat this one!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful BrunchI brought my mom here for a special mother daughter brunch for just the two us. The food was amazing, the dessert (ice cream and sorbet combo) was out of the world and the service was attentive without being intrusive. I have been here for dinner but the brunch was a real treat. I had the Croque Madame and my mom had the omelette. I would pop back here in a moment. For what we got for food and service I felt the prices were fair.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMRelax and EnjoyHaving a restaurant where you can enjoy talking with friends while eating great food, Bar Boulud is a Lincoln Cemter gem.

The staff never intruded or rushed our meal.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFood, Fun, FestiveBar Boulud is one of my favorite go to places. The food is always good, and the scene quite energetic. We love dining here after the theatre or movie.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBar BouludOrdered a salad and the special pork dish, which was a constructed pork belly, not the thing itself. I found it boring and very rich, and I didn't finish it.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently good.Every year I go to the ballet and every year I have an early dinner at Bar Boulud beforehand. The food and service are consistently good. The wine list is fabulous and if you it's a nice evening you can sit outdoors.

We'll go back again.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMcasual lunchUsed the occasion to catch-up with a friend I hadn't seen for several years. Excellent choices for lunch with equally good wine list.

This was my second visit this month and will be going back to experience other dishes.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMPrix Fixe Before NYC BalletStone pebble wall panels captured in wire baskets and a long barrel vault provide a contemporary setting with an ancient feel. Lots of great choices on menu, but all three of my party had a Prix Fixe dinner. We each had a different entree but all three had Pate Grandmere for a starter, which was excellent. Excellent meal, in a great atmosphere and very convenient to Lincoln Center. We will go back again and work our way through this menu.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAussie Diners in NYCWe chose Bar Boulud as our final dining experience in New York and it was a great way to finish out 2 weeks in the city. Looking across Broadway to the Metropolitan Opera House was lovely.
Our waiter was excellent and able to provide a great recommendation that paired with our food from the 'Discoveries' wine list.
The food was excellent. The chicken liver salad with poached egg for appetizer was delicious. The chicken and duck mains were cooked superbly and the desserts were a highlight.
Overall, an excellent dining experience to finish out time in New York.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch enjoyed..Bar Boulud is a wonderful place to have lunch. The prix fixe menu is excellent value and the food is inventive and quite good. The service is attentive and friendly and the ambiance very pleasant. I've been there a number of times and it has never disappointed.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. Good service.We went after a performance at Julliard very convienent. Good price fixed meal.

We opted for the duck for two since it was only offered this day.
Flavors were distinct and not muddled since it was served in one dish and way too much much for two! Unpretentious atmosphere and wonderful service.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMJust right!We've had a nice evening at the Bar Boulud. The sommelier knew exactly what he was doing. Same to the kitchen and the service.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDo the Price Fixe brunch!At $32, this is a deal! The food is to-die-for, and the portions are generous. The sundae for dessert was a highlight - meyer lemon and pistachio ice cream with crumbled macaroon.... UNBELIEVABLE!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLike a club for late night theatre-we love having it across from Lincoln Center and The Opera... and usually delicious..5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner after Lincoln CenterA friend and I came here for dinner after a NYCB performance at Koch.

Highly recommend it as a pre or post dinner theater option.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat brunch and lunch restaurantGreat brunch and lunch restaurant as the menu offers interesting and sophisticated items that go well beyond the typical brunch choices. Never had a dish here that I couldn't recommend enthusistically.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBar boulud is a wonderfulBar boulud is a wonderful restaurant. We had requested a quiet table because of hearing issues of one of our diners, and we were given a quiet booth in the back that allowed us to converse with our out of town guests. The food and service were terrific. Our waiter brought over a wine to taste and provided excellent service throughout our meal, including bringing us a pepper grinder which wasnt part of the set up but which we had use of for the entire meal rather than having to ask and wait. our dinners were aesthetically pleasing as well as delicious.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AM2nd time at Bar Baloudtwo times and two times great service! the brunch prix fixe is very reasonably priced for the venue, atmosphere, and (did i mention this?) the service! if you sit outside or by the window, you can people watch broadway and lincoln center. thumbs up!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMwarm and invitingWhat a great spot on the UWS. The staff was great. The food was spot on...though the salad I had was actually too large (salad lyonaisse). the sommelier was super helpful and helped us choose some nice wines to complement our food. And they actually prepped a nice little extra on the dessert tray, which they gave us for free just from the comments I wrote in the reservation notes section (I wrote it was our Anniversary). It was a small touch, but made the night that much nicer. Thanks to Daniel B.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIn my top ten go to places!Located across from Lincoln Center, this place is great for any occasion! I have never gone wrong with an order, and the portions are generous for the $. I look forward to my next visit.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMA little dear but the foodA little dear but the food was worth it. Convenient to Lincoln Center. Would visit again.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMholding up wellNot quite the mad scene it used to be - still satisfying, reliable choice before performance at Lincoln Center. Charcuterie is the specialty of the house and worth indulging in. Great wine list. Follow the sommelier's advice.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMEat Family StyleBar Boulud is a not to miss spot if you're headed to the Upper West Side, especially Lincoln Center. Make sure to start with the Charcuterie platter, ask your server for great paring, but maybe a nice Spanish red.
Nothing disappointed, including the creative desserts. Favorites: Raspberry Island (will burst in your mouth), and Elixir, if you prefer a creamy sensation.
Perhaps peruse the wine list online before visiting?
I wish I could add photo's to the review, because presentation was outstanding.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMgood meal; desserts outstanding4 diners: 2 ordered from prix fixe menu, 2 ala carte; everyone had different dishes and everyone was very pleased. Desserts were works of art as well as delicious. Would highly recommend.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMpleasedgrabbed a quick bite before a concert. Proximity to Lincoln Center a bonus. Good wine.
great service. charming gem .4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMTop notch al the way...justTop notch al the way...just the right size, great service and appealing ambiance.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe wine steward was veryThe wine steward was very instrumental in recommending a great bottle of wine which made our evening perfect.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a special tasting menuWe had a special tasting menu featuring a single malt whiskey that was specially created for the Boulud restaurants. It was the best meal we had ever eaten at Bar Boulud. One of our previous criticisms was that the portions were usually very small and the prices high but in this case the reverse was true.
The service was very good as well. Our bad luck was that we were seated to a very noisy and energetic group of 5people, including a child. They realized they were being annoying and actually sent over a small plate to apologize for their wild behavior, but they didn't change it!
We hope Bar Boulud will offer these special and affordable tastings more often.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice brunch. TerrificVery nice brunch. Terrific staff. Unfortunately, I did not request a booth so was put near busy stairway. But, after some
persuasion, they moved us to a booth. Next time, I will request booth.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a good spot to meetThis is a good spot to meet up for a quiet brunch on a Sunday afternoon. The food is good and they have a very nice sparkling wine by the glass. I don't feel like I got enough of a sampling of the menu to really form a strong opinion yet, but I'm planning to return to check it out again.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMSaturday lunchHad lunch on a Saturday with my mother and a friend. We arrived a bit late and they were very accommodating. The food and service were very good. Very enjoyable experience.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBar Baloud rocks!Great spot across from Lincoln Center and near Central Park & Columbus Circle. Healthy and delicious dining! Yummy wine tagged with superb food and memorable ambiance...what a "feel good" evening!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch TreatPresentation seems endlessly inventive. Great cocktails. Enjoyed a leisurely mid-day lunch.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely, lovely, lovely!Food was fantastic and the wine list is unparalled. Don't let them bully you into the wine of the day, though. Thry the flights and tastings for 2 oz each, and you'll get an education. The only thing that wasn't superb were the desserts, which were just okay (although to be fair the creamy coconut sorbet stood out). And at $29 for the lunch menu, you *cannot* beat it.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
