    My husband and I celebrated my birthday here after the theater on Sunday afternoon. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, from the Aperol Sogno cocktail (truly a dream) to the French Pinot Noir and our dinner from the "de la mer" selection. Wonderful salmon crudo, perfectly cooked shrimp in garlic and butter, and a delicious paper-thin brioche-crusted loup de mer. Try the grapefruit givre for dessert--heavenly. Everything can be shared if you like. The service was exquisite, very attentive without being obtrusive. Can't wait to go back!

    Disappointing. Despite the dining area being carpeted, the acoustics were horrible. It was extremely loud and rather stressful. We couldn't hear the waiter recite the specials even though he leaned in. Although there were several in wait staff, it took 30 minutes for one member in our party to get flat water after the others ordered sparkling. Bread was not put out we had to ask for it. The main waiter did remember that we had a garlic allergy at the table and made an effort to bring olive oil out with the bread without the garlic that is regularly added to it. The food was tasty and flavorful but the noise left all of us drained by the end of dinner. It was not the relaxing evening that we had planned.

    Very nice pre-fixe menu between 5 and 7 pm for $60, but no regular a la carte available (too bad). Great grilled octopus (as always; we are returning quests) and Loup de Mer, extensive list of wines and terrific service (attentive but not overwhelming). All well coordinated with our pre-theater limited time frame.

    The prix fixe had just the right amount of food. My octopus appetizer was tasty and fresh. Steak done to my taste, medium rare. Not exciting but fine. The desert was the piece de resistance with its halvah grated onto a grapefruit. Unique and delightful combination.

    Was our first time, our waiter Ian was very nice and knowledgeable, were helped with extensive wine list with their sommelier who found the perfect wine at a very reasonable price Food was exquisite, especially the gnocci with fresh shaven white truffles, perfection!! Had several dishes, all were very good, dessert being the best, I had the variety plate and the chocolate panne forte was sooo good, chocolate, nuts and chili flakes gave it the right flavor for it to be unique Again sommelier paired with after dinner drinks that gave the right touch to dessert It was a wonderful experience and will definitely return on my next trip to NYC

    Friendly, knowledgeable and professional staff who go out of their way to make you comfortable and ensure a great experience. Unusually, they have a good selection of Greek wines. The Domaine Economou is very regressing but at the same time full of character. Try the truffled gnocchi. And for dessert, the grapefruit givré.

    Ate at many of the restaurants in Lincoln Center area for many years and this is our first time at Boulud Sud. Will definitely go back again. Service was better than the food and the food was very good. All prepared in a unique and tasty way. Only disappointment was the LI quid appetizer special as it was tough and chewy-hard to digest. Octopus appetizer melted in your mouth. Loup de mer and halibut was excellent. Desserts were delicious.

    Daniel Boulud has remade and improved so many types of cuisine that I am a bit surprised that he waited to devote a restaurant to Mediterranean cooking. But Boulud Sud, which has been open for three years now, was worth the wait (his and mine). He offers more than Provençal fish soups and tomato dishes. Boulud seemed to start with the premise that the Mediterranean Sea laps at more beaches than just those of Marseille. Boulud Sud offers guests delightful takes on traditional dishes from France, Greece, Turkey and North Africa. (And that was just the night that I was there.) We were a party of five and we all were very impressed and we vowed to return to Boulud Sud as soon as we can - even if that meant not going together.

    It is not our first visit at Boulud Sud and other restaurants of the guy, this time we went for brunch and the food was very good, very tasty kicken tagine and deserts even better ; modern version of tiramisu, cinamon cake and mignardises. We also took wine by the glass, Chardonnay from California (Boulud's wine) was great as well BUT the service was very bad even if there were not many guests, it was very loose; I had to ask two times to get the wine served as we wanted to have a glass while waiting for the appetisers, it barely came at the end of the appetisers... Why having so many waitters if they do not serve the clients ? Nevertheless a nice place to go even if the quite expensive

    Exceptional- from the moment you walk in to the moment you walk out. The hosts are quick and friendly not much time wasted there. Once you sit down at your table, it only takes less than a minute for the bread and water to arrive by very professional staff members. The wait staff is also professional and well informed, just about perfect attentiveness- not too overbearing or too neglecting. Menu descriptions are true to what was presented, dishes are perfectly priced, portions are perfect, of course the presentation of food and DEFINITELY the taste. Elegant and classy without the snooty factor, swift and attentive without feeling rushed, and well-balanced & portioned and flavorful without leaving you feeling hungry or overwhelmed.

    The little plates to share and appetizers divided into food types were interesting. Chicken tagine not as I recall,but good anyway. The martini was the smallest we have ever had and cost$18.00 which is the most we have ever paid. I do not recall whether they gave any in between tidbits or something at the end as the Lincoln does??Unless, you order dessert that was it.Also some inner line outdoor tables butt right up to the counters places from Epicure Boulud which seems too cosy for what turns out to be an expensive meal

    We were visiting NYC for our 25th anniversary and chose this restaurant because I'm a fan of Daniel Boulud's cooking and because my wife and I both love mediterranean food. We were not disappointed. There are so many wonderful-sounding dishes on the menu it was very hard to decide but we had the OCTOPUS À LA PLANCHA (incredible), the GAMBAS AL AJILLO (beautifully cooked but very subtle), the MEDITERRANEAN MEZZE (best falafel I've ever had), the SICILIAN SARDINE ESCABÈCHE (beautiful), the OLIVE OIL POACHED HALIBUT (amazing), the CHARRED BROCCOLI RABE (meh), and the PATATAS BRAVAS (fantastic, smokey, hint of harissa). And the Grapefruit Givre is probably the most unexpected and delicious dessert I've had in a long, long time.
