Great location in Armory Square. Very good and sometimes unusual food. Nice atmosphere and excellent service. Easily, one of the best restaurants in the area. Lunch is great and a good value, when they offer lunch and their outdoor courtyard is lovely in the warmer months.

Gem of a restaurant
Excellent food and atmosphere. I asked if I could have a recipe and the chef wrote it out and came to our table. Would definitely go there again when I am in Syracuse.

Overall a good meal
We started with the calimari which was dry and tasteless.
However, the shortrib gnocchi was fantastic and my boyfriends steak was tender and cooked perfectly.
There cocktail menu offer something for everyone and the waitstaff was friendly and helpful.
Although out meal dint start off on the right foot, I would return to BC resturant!

Being new to Syracuse we were extremely happy with our experience. The salmon and steak entrees were prepared perfectly and the appetizers complemented our meals perfectly (lobster & goatcheese salad, squash & coconut soup)... the coffee and cheesecake were a perfect cap to the evening. I recommend BC to anyone!

Food is excellent, the wine list is great. Been at lest 10 times & never a bad experience. Some times the waitstaff is a little rough around the edges, a little polish wouldn't hurt. The last couple of times there, the entertainment was excellent. Nice to hear enjoyable dinner music.

We dined at bc during graduation weekend when only a prix fixe menu was available. The menu offered a perfect variety of choices and all 8 members of our party enjoyed their selections. Service was very efficient for a group our size and we had a wonderful time celebrating my sons college graduation.

I truly enjoyed my experience at bc restaurant. The welcoming host, friendly staff and prompt service set us up for a good experience, and we were then taken aback by the beautifully presented and delicious food. The entire experience was impeccable, start to finish. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Consistently great food
BC is one of our favorite spots in Syracuse. Food and service are fantastic!

This is a hidden gem of a restaurant. We stumbled upon it last year on a trip when the restaurant in the guide book we were looking for could not be located (because it had closed). The parking lot attendant recommended 2 places - bc being one of them. We ate in the courtyard behind the restaurant and it was outstanding. This year, we planned our trip to eat here on the way out and again a week later on the return trip. Once again, it was a terrific experience. The food is incredible, top-notch service and a warm, friendly staff makes the whole experience first rate.

Great date night restaurant
My girlfriend and I were recently at bc Restaurant for a Friday date night. We loved it! The good was excellent, and the service was very good! We were a little apprehensive when we saw a band setting up while we were eating (they have live music every Thursday and Friday night) but we were delighted when the 5 piece jazz band started playing. They were not too loud, and it was a very nice touch for ambiance. I would definitely come back here again.

This is the second time we have eaten here, both times the service and food is outstanding, highly recomend this restaurant.

Best In The Area!
Once again BC didn't disappoint! The creativity that their head chef continues to have never ceases to amaze me. The service was great as always and the live music added a special touch. In my opinion it is simply the best all around dining experience in the Syracuse area.

Great Eats and Service
I have been here several times and the food qulaity and settign is wonderful. From the Martini's the bartender made to the specific likings of our groups female contigent, to the quality IPA's and other beverage options the choices and quality were great. We had a spectacular waiter, Chris, who spoke with the kitchen staff and made sure all our dinning needs were met with perfection, and done to our liking. The dining experince in the back of the retaurant in the open air brinck alley, was magnificent, and the evenign was topped by special treat from the bar tender and our server. Loved it!

Celebrated my birthday with my husband and three other couples. We all had a great time, with very good service and delicious food. Tried the small plate of the Lollipop Lamb Chops with the Arugala salad and roasted brussel sprouts. The lamb chops were a bit over cooked, but otherwise everything else was perfect.
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ate there twice in the last couple of weeks. BC is close to being a great restaurant, but misses on a few important items. Some of the service staff pretends to be good, but staff looks focused elsewhere. However, we had one waiter go across the street to starbucks to get us an expresso with our dessert. Amazing! The food is really good, but they over do it and make it more complex than need be and over sauced. The wine list is less than average for a restaurant of this quality. Love the atmosphere for Syracuse. I will return.

Thank you so much for the great dinner on the patio. Wonderful evening and great service.

Great restaurant in Syracuse!
Discovered this great restaurant while driving through Syracuse with my daughter in 2010. Now that she is in school in town, we make sure to eat here every visit as it has the best fresh food around! Just made our reservation for parent weekend. There aren't a lot of dining choices in Syracuse, but BC is well worth the visit!

Amazing Saturday night dinner date
The food was awesome. Presentation was excellent. The entire wait staff was professional, friendly and quite exceptional. This is far and away the second best place to eat in Syracuse. Number one place being our own kitchen :)

I have been to many fine dinning restaurants over the years and BC was perhaps the best overall dinning experience that my family and I ever had!

Fabulous Chicken Dish
Our kind server helped us select the chicken dish. We all three had it and were all delighted!

Good Restaurant in Syracuse
Our hotel told us this is just a bar restaurant but we were glad we kept our reservation from NYC. Food and service were good. I LOVE truffle oil but I didn't expect to have it in Syracuse. Nice surprise. Although our waiter was good, it was rushed a little. After cocktails, we wanted to order a bottle of wine but the food came so quickly that we decided to order a glass instead.

The wait staff was awesome.
The wait staff was awesome. The service was fantasic as soon as we drank some water the glass was refilled and silverware change out quickly. The service was better that any in Syracuse that I have experianced

usual favoite but salty
One of our favorite 3 restaurants in Syracuse. We asked to move to the back room. the two person tables in the front are too close together if you do not want to listen to your neighbor's conversation.

Great Food - Despite the Noise
My husband and I very much enjoyed our roast chicken and mushroom risotto entrees. The kitchen graciously split an excellent arugula salad for us, and the calamari was tender and yummy. The service was wonderful, professional and our food was served at a great pace given that the place was packed. You couldn't empty your water glass without the friendly dude swooping in to fill it up again. Now the bad part. The noise. The two of us had to yell at each in other in order to be heard during the entire meal. While the atmosphere/ambiance is cute old industrial artsy feel, there is absolutely nothing to absorb sound. That's the only reason bc doesn't get a better rating. And it may cause us not to return.

A Syracuse Gem
My husband, three Syracuse juniors and I had a terrific meal at bc on Saturday night. The hostesses and our server Thomas were very pleasant and helpful. The food was all very good. Everything we ordered ( salmon, skirt steak, linguine with crab, calamari, tomato bisque, peanut butter chocolate dessert) was excellent. The salmon was the highlight, delicious asian sauce. We have spent many an evening standing in line waiting for tables at " popular" Syracuse restaurants so the fact that bc takes reservations is a big plus and was by far the best meal we have had in Syracuse. Kudos to the chef! Can't wait to return. Total tab for 5 including cocktails, wine and tip was $265.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
From the smiling face that greets you upon entry to the knowledgeable staff, to the delicious cuisine created by one of the best chefs in the city bc is truly an amazing night out. Add the live music and a lovely manager in Ellen and you've got one of my favorite haunts hands down.

Service second to none
My second time there. Service second to none. Food was delicious. From the hostess' friendly greeting to the frequent yet unobtrusive check-in by the server, we were made to feel like honored guests. Delicious food in appropriate portion size (i.e. appropriate for average human being instead of average sumo wrestler).
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of our fave places in Syracuse. Wait staff is always attentive even on full house University Parents Weekend. We love to do smaller plates sometimes & always get the wild mushroom risotto. Bacon wrapped filet & crispy salmon are also special.

our favorite restaurant in Syracuse
As usual, we had a great meal at BC. As long as our daughter lives in town we will make visiting BC a regular stop, especially note that they are open on Mondays.

Awesome meal Noisy dinning
We liked that there was live music during our recent visit for dinner. But if the volume of that music was lessen it would have made a very enjoyable dinner even better. It just made an already noisy dining room to a room that made have a conversation very difficult.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always a Good Time
My wife and I dine at BC about once per month. It's good for intimate dining (though some of the 2-tops are too close together). The restaurant has an inventive menu ( I love the duck wings) and a good cocktail list.
12/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everyone was pleased
Had a wonderful dinner on Saturday Night with friends. Service was terrific and knowledgeable about Gluten Free or Vegan which was very helpful. Everyone's dinner was done to perfection and we weren't rushed at all. We sat for quite a while after dinner. Enjoyable experience all around. Will be back.
