    Our food was excellent, especially the salmon with lentils. In spite of its being in a big shopping mall, it is actually calm enough to have a conversation here, unlike like so many New York restaurants with good food. The wine selections are very good and reasonably priced.

    Our party of 4 wanted a nice meal before attending a concert at Jazz and we chose Bouchon for its convenience. It was a great find! The server was professional and efficient, the food was excellent and the price was right. Although the menu is limited, there were ample choices for every taste and hunger level. We would definitely return.

    This is a very flexible restaurant where you can have just a light snack or a full meal. Almost everything we ate was excellent. The figs and burrata were lovely as was the bib lettuce salad. My quiche was just okay and the salad accompanying it was way too salty. But the salmon with lentils that my husband ordered was truly outstanding. The wine list is small but has good choices at reasonable prices.

    My expectations of getting a mini taste of Thomas Keller cuisine at Bouchon Cafe were not met. Breads and baked goods were very good, but the cooked dishes were nothing special. Bottom line, this is a high-end, over-priced coffee shop, with a great view of Central Park.

    My husband and I were catching a NYCB performance and decided to give Bouchon at try. On weekends it's only open until 8 for dinner, so it's ideal for a Lincoln Center pre-performance meal as well as for lunch if you're browsing around the Time-Warner Ctr mall. It's situated by the windows overlooking Columbus Circle down Central Park South, so there's a good view, though you're out on the mall floor so it can be a bit noisy. The menu is limited but the food is delicious and there are some lovely wine selections. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here, but would definitely try it again when it's convenient.

    I didn't realize that they serve dinner (albeit quite early, as they stop seating people at 7) at this great casual place with a magnificent view of Columbus Circle. It's a limited menu, heavy on the sandwiches, but the $36 prix fixe with dinner entrees, is a bargain, and so delicious! We had tomato soup to start, the salmon, perfectly cooked, and fabulous desserts. The bread basket is one of the best in NY (of course), and the Time Warner Center is a lively fun place to be, both for tourists and we locals. Great drinks list, not too pricey. A real treat.

    The menu is very small, but food is beautiful, aromatic and tasty. Try the Pork Loin and the Chocolate Soufllé!

    I chose this restaurant mainly for its location in the Time Warner Building as we were going to attend the special Nakamura-Za Kabuki Theatre Special following dinner at the Rose Hall located on the 5th floor. This restaurant was on the 3rd fl and got favorable reviews. We found the food to be delicious and reasonably priced. The Central Parking on the gound level made it very convenient for us to come to the building, park, eat and enjoy the performance as everything was in the same complex. We didn't have to walk very far nor did we have to wait in any lines which made the entire experience very pleasant.

    I don't know what going on with the menu here, but I am missing some of my old favorites. The little happy hour snack menu is awesome though, the madeleines straight from the oven are fantastic!

    We so enjoyed the food and also the waitress was perfect. The menu offers a nice range and variety. This is a great place for taking in Time Warner Center's ambiance and is an alternative to the pricier restaurants there. Plus one can shop before and after eating! When we were leaving we told the waitress we were celebrating my birthday and she brought out cookies for the three of us. Very sweet.

    Bouchon has a surprisingly wide range of dishes that are predictably well- prepared and delicious. My most recent visit was for a quick , pre-theater dinner --unexpectedly as a singleton. The endive and arugala salad I ordered was especially good, and the roasted chickem entree eas quite nice (if a little short on the accomoanying vegetables). i ordered a glass of wine, and got a generous serving that was well worth the price. The service was excellent--efficient and helpful, and not at all rushed.

    Bouchon Bakery has friendly service and is great for a light pre-theater meal, not to mention the beautiful view of Christopher Columbus.

    So great that Bouchon now takes reservations! Yes, technically it's in a mall, but there's a great view out the huge windows to Columbus Circle and Central Park. Food is excellent, service friendly and professional. We always enjoy an early dinner here before heading upstairs to a show at the Jazz at Lincoln Center theaters.
