Fun time celebrating a family birthday. Place was buzzing, food was solid (although a bit pricey), but service was a little slow.
Excellent service and the food was exceptional. It was a wonderful celebration evening!
Solid and what you would expect. Won’t blow you away but you’ll be satisfied. A touch on the pricey side.
It's been quite some time since I've been to Balthazar but have always loved the institution for the food, atmosphere and service. However, most of the food with this visit was sadly mediocre but the service was polite. There seemed to be an issue with one of the dishes (Salade Lyonniase) coming out at the same time with the hot entrees. The hash was flavorful.
Great service, delicious breakfast.
We got delayed in Valentines Day because of the MTA, we called to let them know we would be late, but it ended up being longer than we thought. Despite us being THIRTY minutes late, the hostess was extremely understanding and sat us within a minute. The staff was kind and attentive, and the food was very yummy! Great vibe overall. Even for it being Valentine’s Day, it wasn’t super loud. The portions are nice, even if it can get pricey, but you pay for an amazing experience overall. I’d definitely like to come back for their breakfast one day.
Visiting our son !
Excellent - as always ! Friendly staff , great food and atmosphere - highly recommend
Valentine’s Day breakfast, did not disappoint. Mimosas were delicious. Hubs got a half order of waffles and an omelette. He ordered a side of sausage as well, but didn’t end up eating it all.
Hostess was very nice and welcoming. It was valentines day so she suggested a corner table that was perfect. They were busy, and our coffee was very delayed. They did not offer anything to offset the huge delay. Most interesting part of breakfast was the oversized mugs they make your coffee in. It's like almost 4 cups of coffee. Very cool. I didn't get it, but my husband did, and he was vey happy. So definitely get it , you won' the disappointed. The Food was very good. I had Poached eggs on avocado on fresh multigrain toast. Nice size serving and ample avocado. The eggs were cooked perfectly. Also the salsa that came with it was fresh and delicious!!. My husband had an omelette with fresh fruit, He really enjoyed it and serving was good. I would go back as it is very quaint, but I might just get the oversized coffee & fresh bread baskets with danishes, croissants. If I had to complain, which I don't, I would say they could have made it a little more special and maybe added cookies for Valentines Day. But overall we enjoyed our Breakfast.
Wonderful fresh food. Highly recommend. As a plus, we had friends from Paris visiting and our waiter happened to speak French which was nice for them. Lovely experience!
Empty plates. All. Empty. Plates. With fingerprints.
Deliciously flavored food in an authentic French brasserie atmosphere. VERY lively, excellent service, too.
Classic NYC French restaurant
Never disappoints. Attentive and sincere service, fabulous food.
Nice place, a little noisy though. Staff was very nice.
Very Good lunch.
Noisy, but very good food!
Muy buena comida, excelente servicio.
The warmth and sweetness of the staff is equal to the exceptional culinary artistry done in the back of the house. It’s always a special privilege to dine at Balthazar, as even a simple salad is elevated to pleasure of a decadent dessert.
Absolutely wonderful place.
The food was delicious, the service was top notch. My only complaint was that the tables were too close
Together. We had to move the table to get in and out of our seats.
Another lunch at Balthazar. Enjoyed the Balthazar salad, moules et frites. Dining companions had beef stroganoff and steak. all very satisfied. Next time plan to have the fruits de mer. Duck confit had by adjacent diner also looked good. Overall, very satisfying.
great maitre D
delicious food and fun atmosphere
my favorite NYC spot for any meal
A knowledgeable New Yorker friend recommended Balthazar, and we had an incredible dinner. It was a pretty loud, but not really loud, big gorgeous room. The food was absolutely delicious. We went back to their bakery two days later. Love, love, love.
Balthazar is one of our favorite special NYC breakfast/brunch options. There's no doubt as to why it's an iconic NYC mainstay. Food is consistently wonderful and no one makes a more truly classic croissant. A worthy splurge every time!
All good. Classic experience
Always wonderful to come back !!! Keep up the great work !!
BEST BIRTHDAY DINNER EVER!
Overpriced; overhyped; way too noisy; do not recommend;
It was rushed;
Attentive and helpful staff and service. Nice food. Really lovely atmosphere and venue. Prefect for a weekend brunch.
Everything very good but just the table according to us was in a bad place hidden in a corner of the restaurant and a little bit dark of light
We enjoyed a very fun dinner at one of my very fav spots. We had wonderful service by Brahim, who took care with my son’s nut allergy. We had the onion soup, steak frites, chicken paillard, pasta and an array of desserts. Perfect!
The ambiance is the best part of this restaurant. The food and service was decent.
BEST FOOD I'VE EVER HAD! Simply amazing. Loved every minute of my experience.
Delicious!!! I go to eat here every time I visit New York!!
