Balthazar Ratings and Reviews
Always frenetic, today was that at best. Host seemingly couldn't find reservation. She apparently is unaware that smiling is allowed. Server very nice but forgot ketchup 3x and didn't bring drinks until the food arrived (about 20 minutes after arriving). Rarely complain about pricing but $34 for a lunch pappardelle? $40 for steak frite? Rather spend $15 more on a ribeye elsewhere. $24 for eggs benedict? Good for expense accounts and tourists... Lunch for 2 is basically $100+. Food is good enough. Always been a hot spot so why change? Personally, I pass.
Charming as ever but now quite expensive; $19 for a martini was the most we paid in Manhattan. The oysters and shellfish are outstanding as always, the beet salad was great, but the veal cutlet although generous in size was completely over cooked and uninteresting. This is a pilgrimage place for us when we go to New York but I don’t know if we continue to make the trek downtown.
Balthazar never ceases to amaze us. It is simply one of the best restaurants in town and it is a must everytime we come to the city. It has such an energetic environment and its staff makes sure to give us the best experience. The food is out of this world, every plate is made perfectly. Amazing restaurant!
We were so excited about Balthazar because it is always booked up. We went there for a breakfast but it did not mert our expectations. The food is delivious but it is so expensive! Even a single egg with some patato is 22 dollars. Tables are very small. We could hardly fit in a booth with 4 people. I can not say that I am impressed by the ambiance but it is a cosy place. Overall I found it overrated.
Had a 2pm reservation and at 2.40 they were still seating 1.30 reservations
I know it’s the holiday week but it was chaos and the hostess and host couldn’t keep up managing the crowd and list of walk ins on top of the reservations
They could have better managed people’s expectations by saying it maybe 30 min plus for a table when we checked in - was on my lunch break from work w colleague so we would have gone someplace else ! Maddening and unexpected as I dine here often
