Truly a delightful experience!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMit was our 32 anniversaryit was our 32 anniversary and it end up being quite memorable. The service the food and overall decor was perfect.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMI loved the fantastic tastesI loved the fantastic tastes of all the dishes. The lunch tasting menu is a wonderful opportunity to be surprised at every course and if you are sharing, as we were, the surprise is doubled. A good combination of appetizers is the porcini flan and the wild mushrooms. Cannot identify/remember the foamy concoction that went together with the wild mushrooms, but left me feeling lifted on a cloud. Before that the Big Eye Tuna with the airy taste of Green Apple was heavenly. The main course 17 hours Slow Braised Kobe Style Beef Cheeks were melting in my mouth. And every next step was perfection - Chilled Rhubarb Soup with flavorful strawberries, Caramelized Anjou Pear, and the complimentary sweets selection at the end!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBest time in yearsThis is the best time I've had in a restaurant in many years. The ambiance is that of an opulent townhouse. The food is wonderful. The 10 different breads worth the carbs. The drinks marvelous. The service is first class plus. The cost reasonable considering the value received. ENJOY!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMPrincess dream!Pour toutes les filles qui rêvent d'un repas de princesse, c'est l'endroit !
Le personnel est partout, voit à chaque petite attention, l'endroit est majestueux, les plats toujours bien présentés, la cuisine de Bouley est excellente. Nous reviendrons assurément !5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMA dining experience of a lifetimeBouley is magnificent! It ranks as one of the finest restaurants I have ever been to. Every single thing was extraordinary; the food was sublime- exquisite flavors, surprising textures and combinations, not to mention presentation; flavorful, yet not too rich- graciously accommodating (a food allergy); outstanding service, attentive, but not intrusive; gorgeous flowers and elegant atmosphere; fabulous wine list; the attention to every last detail..... We were celebrating a very important anniversary, and the entire experience just couldn't have been better.
Thank you for one of the most memorable evenings in all of our lives!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dining experience.
WeWonderful dining experience.
We recommend the tasting menu to experience the many talents of this kitchen.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellenta tad expensive for our budget, but worth every cent5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing experienceThis was one of those most impressive experiences that will NEVER be forgotten. Downstairs was a lower key, great place for enjoying the full experience. The upstairs/main level was a bit more active. We arrived at 8p as a party of four and left a little after 11p. The tasting menu was simply the finest mix of culinary delight. The attention to any food allergies was unmatched. The wait staff and wine stewards were attentive, didn't rush us, so very "on it." A truly magical evening. The brilliant and generous chef kept sending out "extra" courses of some of the finest treats on top of the six course tasting menu. Bravo/a to all involved. Thank you for making our special visit with dear friends one of the finest.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe bestWe spent way too much, but it was worth it. Was there for a special occasion, my daughter's PhD! We did the tasting menu that could not possibly disappoint. The entire evening was perfectly prepared and executed.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I enjoyed aMy husband and I enjoyed a fantastically leisurely lunch. We enjoyed a low-stress "visit" to France in the middle of hip Tribeca. Everything was perfect!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect honeymoon dinnerWe dined at Bouley to open our honeymoon. My wife and I regularly eat in fine restaurants (Paris, Rome, Milan, New York, Toronto, Montreal) and can say without hesitation that Bouley presented us with one of the finest dinners we have ever had. Everyone from the chef to the waiters, and thus both the quality and its preparation to the food to the service, exhibited attention to detail. The staff at Bouley love what they do. For them food is a work of art. We were touched when the chef honored our honeymoon with a special desert and gift. Certainly not typical dining in New York and highly, highly recommended for lovers of food and art!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMrabbit salad and lobster mainrabbit salad and lobster main course were unbelieveably fabulous..5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulllllllllIt was my first time at the restaurant ,and i realy want to come back !
Food delicius , wetry the taste menu and it was explendid . The service were very atencius and polite . Good restaurant to couples . And in the end ,they gave usa delicius homemade bread .....5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food and service!Great place for a romantic dinner, family dinner or to entertain a small group of clients. I have been to Bouley twice now for lunch and the food, service and atmosphere is absolutely wonderful. I would highly recommend the tasting menu and get the Porcini Flan to start - it is worth it! The desserts are also amazing so leave some room for that as well!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSpectacular in Every RegardMore of an experience than a dinner, the food was impressive in every respect. Although we did not have the tasting menu, we were presented with multiple opportunities to taste special presentations from the chef. Service was warm, welcoming & humorous. We felt as though we were regular diners in this elegant setting. This is a gorgeous room that presents a spectacular experience in every regard. The sommelier was phenomenal in her choice of wine pairings. Especially fun is the attendant to the bread cart who makes his job of slicing these marvelous loaves to be his passion. Everyone from the person who welcomes you to the person who escorts you to the door really wants you to have an exceptional. They are successful on every count!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFrom the moment you walk inFrom the moment you walk in your senses are stimulated with beauty. The scent of apples and flowers take you out of the city and into an absolutely special. The service couldn't be better from the hostess to the sommelier to the waitstaff. There was no pretension in his attitude nor in any other waiter or server. We had the $55 luncheon tasting menu. We started out with 2 amuse bouches which were as stunning to look at as to taste. I won't go into every detail but suffice it to say that no detail was left out. My mother ordered only a main dish yet they still brought out small treats flor her. The service was impeccable and available without hovering.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFeast for the senses!Fabulous experience from beginning to end. Not only was the food stellar, but the dining experience complimented the food. The dining room has a soothing French countryside calmness that simply heightens the taste, sight and smell of the delicious food. We got the prix fixe, 5 courses of various items from the menu, but the kitchen kept sending out little tastes of other things - there were 4 of these, including a delightful selection of cookies/pastries at the very end. I'll be back!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMUne excellente soirée!Repas divin, lieu tout a fait charmant ; le personnel français ( mais aussi local ) est super sympa! On se sent très bien dans ce restaurant, c'est chaleureux, attentionné!! A refaire absolument lors de notre prochain voyage a NY5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMA very positive experienceclearly much better than Jean Georges. I would rate it 2 star in the Michelin system. Of 6 courses, 1 was good, 4 very good and 1 exceptional. Service was friendly and efficient. The only nit was a certain delay between the dishes of the tasting menu. Wine service was very good. In sum, a great restaurant. With minor adjustments it could achieve 3 stars. Strongly recommended.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMClouds and EarthWords fail this experience. Bouley is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of place for a gal like me. It is sublime in every way. Every detail sings opera! Every flavor brought me to tears or moans or smiles or a combination. I had to save up to pay for it all, but I have no regrets. None. Just afterglow.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter all these years, stillAfter all these years, still one of the best restaurants in New York.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMEXCELLENT!The lunch prix frixe was an excellent value.

loic5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent serviceExcellent service and some exceptional courses. The bread selection is wide and as good as you will ever taste. Great value for money to be had at lunch time in particular. The restaurant is formal but the service is relaxed and human.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMJust about Perfect!Bouley remains my favorite place for a splurge. The food is outstanding, creative, flavorful - only the best ingredients. It is creative without being fussy or pretentious. For instance, there is lots of ‘foam” – but it all seems to fit, and feels so substantive. This is food to linger over. The tasting menu at lunch is wonderful, and they give you so many extras. The service is perfect, and the room is so beautiful - even when full it is not too noisy.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was fantastic. We reallyFood was fantastic. We really enjoyed the Bread cart & the Gentleman who came to the table to serve it.

It is a very relaxed atmosphere (Lunch time) in a refined establishment.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMTime to award additional Michelin *My wife and I celebrated her 40th birthday at Bouley. I never write reviews but I felt compelled we had the dining experience of our lives. Bouley's luncheon tasting menu is simply amazing. I've been to a bunch of 1 Michelin star restaurants as well as Daniel for dinners. This lunch menu stands out above all the other meals and the service was exemplary. If it's still on the menu don't miss the Porcini Flan. Also try the fig bread.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic gourmet dinnerWe celebrate me birthday in NYC and part of my present was dinner in this top rated place.

The food was amazing and I could not fault this amazing place! The lunch tasting was $55 each and we could not be happier with the choice.
Good to note that you do need to dress appropriately - suit jacket is a must for dining here - but worth it!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent andThe food was excellent and its presentation was also outstanding.

The food was exquisite and the decor made us feel like we were dining in a French chateau. THe service was attentive, but not intrusive. We enjoyed the tasting menu with wine pairings with many surprises from the chef along the way.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding in Every RespectOne of the best meals of my life, and certainly the equal of practically all the Michelin-starred restaurants where I dined while living in Europe. A listing of the specific dishes would't really serve any useful purpose, as I'm sure they change so rapidly as to make any description obsolete very quickly.
As many reviewers and guidebooks have noted, the $55 tasting menu at lunch is a terrific bargain and doesn't restrict diners to low-end dishes. Although it's listed as a five-course meal, with amuse-bouches, petits-fours and other in-between treats, mine turned out to be more like seven or eight. Sensational!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMHeavenly. Worth every penny & moreI rarely, if ever, write reviews, but feel compelled to share the lovely time my friend and I had at Bouley. Stepping inside to the immediate fragrance of apples just sets the stage for the attentive, exquisite meal to come. We had their luncheon tasting menu. From the warm, fresh rolls that appeared by our side to the pair of amuse-bouches,the raw oysters with kiwi, porcini & dungeness crab flan, offerings of 7+artisan breads from saffron to pistachio to olive or black current (oh, but that my stomach were bigger!), copper river salmon, kobe beef cheeks with gnocchi to strawberry rhubarb or white peach chilled soup with a dollop of housemade ice cream to the chocolate souffle, more ice cream, handmade pastries. I could go on. Just GO!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
