Balthazar Ratings and Reviews
To noise and to crowd. Not recomended for a quiet dinner. We had a 10.00pm reservation but our table went ready only at 10.30pm. We wanted to have a drink at the bar during that wait but it was so crowded that we couldn’t even approach to the bar.
Im not coming back!
Our experience at Balthazar was great. We were seated about 10-15 minutes after our reservation time, but were able to enjoy some wine and people watching from the bar while we waited. The highlight of the meal was the french onion soup, but everything was very good.
I used to go to Balthazar for Breakfast/Brunch and I loved it. This time I decided to try their lunch. The place is beautiful, reminds me the Parisian's Brasseries. The hostesses were not pleasant at all. None of them. However the server was extremely nice. The food was good, we had the goat cheese quiche, the steak eggplant, and the mussels with French fries. For dessert we shared the Pavlova. Unfortunately the meringua was too dense while it supposed to be crispy on the outside and soft in the inside. Overall it was a nice lunch but I do believe that the experience starts when you open the restaurant's door.
I've been many times since 1999, the Niçoise salad used to not have peppers. Beside that, was great.
I look the place lacking of maintenance. The mirrors try to resemble being old, but it doesn't justify that they were dirty.
The restroom was really dirty.
Balthazar could still be one of the best spots in NYC.
I met my daughter in NYC where she was visiting for an interview, and we had Sunday Brunch in the late afternoon. The Maitre D fit us in even though we'd not been able to call to change our reservation and seated us promptly at a lovely table even though the restaurant was packed. The service was outstanding, and our waiter brought us the almond croissants to go without charge because it was late and he thought they might not be as fresh. Of course, we paid anyway and enjoyed them at our hotel later. Delicious! The whole meal was really delicious and cooked to perfection!
We end up there by accident and later on found out that there is a hype around this place cause of movie shooting of Sex and the City. Food was mediocre, testless in some point. The fries, which claimed to be the best, was soo fast food chain like. Nothing food wise worth to mention. HOwever, the server was amazing. She deserves a gold star for exceptional service!
Waited to be seated despite reservation and many empty tables. I noticed line to be seated continued while I sat. Food was served 1 hour after we were seated. Restaurant did not seem particularly busy. Food good but not worth the wait. I was embarrassed as I was entertaining a client.
Fantastic from start to finish. Yes, it's loud and busy - but it's an energy that's contagious and fun. Service was fantastic-friendly, helpful, present (not too present), and with great recommendations. Food was delicious - especially the onion soup - don't miss it! Just note, it's a meal in itself. LOVED the whole meal/experience and will definitely make it a regular stop.
I ordered the Wednesday special - Coquilles St. Jacques and it was excellent. The service was very good. The only negative I have about the restaurant is that it is very noisy and there is no room between tables. The couple sitting next to us had to keep moving the table in order to get in an out. Impossible to have a quiet conversation.
