Looking at wedding rings and brunch at Balthazar. Perfect day. I asked to speak to the manager after we ate..to let him know about the exceptional service and food. Balthazar is one of those rare places that’s been “hot” for a long time but has never taken that for granted. Simply outstanding.

Il locale non è particolarmente curato nè di atmosfera. Risulta molto rumoroso perché affollato. Non particolarmente di atmosfera. Non per cene a due ma per cene con amici.

We love Balthazar’s and come back every year for a meal. Service is impeccable and food always great, but a bit on the pricey side. Hot chocolate here is a must!

Troppo rumoroso, tavoli appiccicati, cibo di media qualità e prezzi troppo alto. Più che un ristorante francese sembrava un fast food

The food was good, however the temperature in the restaurant was overly warm, I saw several other tables fanning themselves with menus. Also the service was surprisingly and disappointingly poor. Our waiter took 20 minutes to take our initial drink/food order and then 30 minutes to bring us the check at the end of the meal.

Just like eating in Paris! Lovely Parisian atmosphere and BEST MUSSELS I've ever had - no lie. Pre-theater dining: our waitress was cheerfully accommodating to get our food out quickly so we could enjoy our dinner without being rushed. Delicious bread. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Server was great. He made all requested accommodations and dealt with my uncle and I chatting for at least an hour before ordering food as we caught up on life after it had been 2 years. Vibes on a wed night were great. Huge fan of the bread basket :)

First I want to say that I love this restaurant. I know it’s a bit cliche to say that but it’s one of those gems that’s never been broke so no point in fixing it. But... big but, the service has really suffered. It’s been about 6 months since I was there last and I didn’t recognize a single server. Our server was terrible. I had to explain that Reposado is not a brand of tequila but rather a type. Appetizers and mains came out to close together. The server’s recommended glass of wine for my friend to accompany her steak was described as full bodied. It wasn’t even close. It was perhaps the worst glass of red wine I have ever tasted.

On a positive note, the steak tartare was its usual amazing.

Well
I love this place and go every year
There have always been minor problems
This time was delightful
Everything was much the same as ever
The down sides were two fold
We asked for a break between starter and main
That didn’t happen
My steak wasn’t rested so it sat in a pool of blood
Many people would be put off by this

Balthazar has an authentic Parisian atmosphere. Went for late breakfast on a Monday. The service was wonderful as was my cafe au lait and eggs en cocotte. I enjoyed them so much I was inspired to make them at home, which I had never done before. So delicious!
