A classic, a favorite, outstanding as always. This place is full of old charm and hip ambience where every dish is a hit, not to mention killer martinis!
I had a really great time here I was sat down fairly fast and the waitress was excellent in explaining us the menu and what's good. I loved the food here to it was on point of what I was expecting. I would recommend this place to anyone and my friends and family if I could give more stars here I would. Cant waitnto come back to the NY next time and come back here to eat. Thank you.
Comida espectacular, lugar super agradable y original, servicio de Mustapha excepcional 100% recomendable..
Food was very sub-par for the price. I however appreciate the outstanding service and beautiful atmosphere. It looked straight out of paris.
Our last meal out (3/13) before the freeze on eating out. Crowded but not as usual. Food okay, not up to Balthazar’s standards. Service the same: disappointing.
My biggest complaint was the food. As a first time diner to Balthazar. This restaurant was highly for its food. I found not to be worth the money. My wife’s onion soup was very salty and missing any depth in flavor. My salad nicoise was greens we’re not fresh and found components to be lumped together. The seared ahi tuna was cooked med rare the way I asked. The dressing tasted more of blended oil than anything else. My chicken paillard was to thin and dry the sauce had no seasoning or flavor. The frisée on my chicken was old, rubbery not cut properly. My wife had a burger that was bitter with char. Just because it was well done doesn’t mean it has to be burnt. The fries were soggy, under done and salty. We also had coffee and it tasted of the residue when the coffee is not cleaned properly. The waitress was very good and attentive The offering of freshly cracked pepper was great.
Had an early morning breakfast, a rare moment when this place is delightfully quiet if thats what you are looking for, great food, ambience, and service.
What a fun vibe! Incredible service! The duck special was wonderful. You can’t miss the steak frites!
My birthday celebration was simply perfect! We sat in a corner of the restaurant with a fabulous view of the room and received exemplary service!
It was hard to choose but I ordered the scrambled eggs in pastry. It was delicious.
The waiter got my order wrong. But he amended it quickly and professionally. Not only that. He packed the order and gave it to me free of charge. I didn’t care for the freebie but absolutely appreciated the gesture.
We just didn't enjoy our experience. Our wad extremely busy to the point that he forgot to put in part of order. When we reminded him of this, he said he forgot to enter it, then quickly moved on without any apology. The mussels were great, but it was so loud in the restaurant we just Wanted to leave and go someplace else for dessert and drinks.
Every bit worth the price. It's quite a relaxing atmosphere despite it's fame. Intimate.
Balthazar has seen its best days. It is now a place full of tourists and uninteresing people, with a lot of noise. Success has these things...
Food is consistently amazing! Service is top notch.
Balthazar is a classic and an excellent representative of French culinary tradition in NYC.
It’s always worth it
Every time we come to NYC we book a table here
The food was incredible. Everything was delicious and made with intent. I can't wait to visit again.
The setting was a bit too crowded and packed but otherwise perfect!
My daughter & I ate a traditional French breakfast of waffles with fresh fruit and "eggs any way" which included eggs, bacon, toast (and more that I don't remember), and we both got the hot chocolate. Additionally, we got the tartine and a chocolate croissant to share. Everything was presented beautifully and was delicious. Service was great. I wish we had the time to eat here again during our trip.
