What Insiders Are Saying
The incredible People Watching available at Balthazar makes scrunching into a tiny table and overpaying for brunch totally worth it. Say whatever you want about this place, you can’t take away the fact that the kitchen gets it done.
Sono tornato da Balthazar a NYC dopo due anni e l'eccellenza della cucina è senz'altro confermata. Piatti completi materia prima di grande qualità sia per il pesce che per la carne. Dolci eccezionali. Lista dei vini vastissima ed internazionale. Esperienza da fare anche se il prezzo è superiore alla media di NYC. Un angolo di Francia a Soho. Tutto ottimo.
Fantastic Service by an real frenchman! We enyoied it very mich!
Excellent food, wine and pleasant, helpful waitstaff. We ate early and the place filled up as the dinner progressed. The place was packed and lively as we left.
The European cafe ambiance is fun. The burger was good, though not sure it was worth the price compared to other well executed restaurant-style burgers. Eggs Benedict was underwhelming. This was a fun place to go once with friends visiting from out of town. I can't see myself going back as it's just not worth the price point.
The atmosphere and NY vibe is the draw. Always fun and good people watching.
Service was pleasant without being truly attentive
Steak was not as requested - medium rare
Food was good but did not relate to the prices which are high by any standard
Wine prices were exorbitant
The initial impression was not good and it didn’t get much better. Restaurant was packed at 3pm on Friday for our reservation. Host stand was highly disorganized. NO ONE SMILED OR WELCOMED US. The hostesses don’t speak, they just ignore you or nod. At the table, my soda glass was never refilled, waitress never smiled either. Food was ok. French fries were deemed the best on Food Network but they were just ok. Warm chocolate cake was excellent but it took 30 minutes to come out. Waitress never gave us a status or checked on us. We thought she forgot the order but she never came by for us to ask about it. We came from Texas for a special occasion and were disappointed in this restaurant. Not a friendly atmosphere.
I love Balthazar, It is a Great New York point. A Classic stylish restaurant.
Fantastic food in a vibrant busy restaurant. Only negative is the tables are far too close together and very difficult to get in and out of seats. Overall, a great place to meet for breakfast.
I emphatically asked the waiter to ensure my soup was hot, it wasn't...., she took the order, and did not even bother to warn the cooks..., I called her to bring the soup inside and make it hot, she took a while...., eventually she did, to bring it back warm.... not hot. That is grossly careless.... I have been many times to Paris, although Balthazar, NYC is a good place, by Paris standards it will be just another many restaurants and bistros there, nothing extraordinary...., the management needs to pay attention, to how their employees take simple requests like mine.
Consistent and a great experience. Always a pleasure to go there.
Delicious, fresh and fast, Balthazar’s is a great choice for breakfast, brunch or lunch. The coffee was fantastic, the eggs in puff pastry was exquisite, and the pain au chocolate was chocolatey
Used to be amongst NY’s best, but now expensive and mediocre.
The setting is Nice, but the Balthazar is much too noisy if you are only two people
Classic French menu, well prepared
Wonderful experience! The skate and the banana tart is a must!
Went to Balthazar for a week day brunch with my brother and his wife. Service was excellent. Good selection of breakfast/brunch food. We had a corner table in the window. We stopped here on our
way to The Tenement Museum. Would highly recommend!
Best service and very good food! Lovely atmosphere!
What was once the It place is now one of New York’s classics! Still wonderful after all these years!
Food and service very good. Bread is awesome and addictive, we ended up having 3 baskets. Would go again.
Always seated immediately and the quality and speed of their food is always on spot!
Always on the “must” list and always an outstanding experience!
The food is consistently excellent. The room has the feel and look of an European bistro. The service is excellent as well. The whole place runs like a well oiled machine.
Great food, great service and a wonderful experience allllll around
An interesting and enjoyable experience . Very good ambience and very friendly customers
Food was fantastic.
My husband and I haven't been here in years and it was pleasantly just as good as we remembered. Food was excellent!
Fantastic Oyster Bar and very good food. It was VERY loud (on a Saturday night). Wine list was reasonably priced and had some very good French wines. Service was spotty.
The tables for two were too close together, so we asked for a more private table. They sat us in the bar area which was OK, but it wasn't as nice an area. Food was great (braised boneless beef ribs). Glad we went.
Another excellent experience at Balthazar. It is my favorite restaurant in NYC.
The asmosphere is great and energetic - the food delicious and the staff most friendly.
We can highly recommend Balthazar.
Wonderful setting. Beautiful decor. Staff was very friendly. Went for our 34th wedding anniversary on our trip to NYC. It was great.
Food is excellent as well as the attention to detail with the service.
It was fantastic! The food was great.
We got steak frites and it was the best that I've had so far.
We also tried profiterole which had a great serving and taste.
Prices are also really good, not overpriced.
Our waitress was the absolute best! She was sweet and helpful and make great recommendations! The duck was perfection! I could have eaten two!
Our server was awesome and the food was even better!!! Spendy but definitely worth it!
Being going there for more than 20 years and it still is my favorite restaurant in NYC. Congrats!!!
Great atmosphere! Love this place!
The staff was great. The food (oysters, special, confit) was exactly as one would expect from a fine restaurant. I’ll never hesitate to return or send someone.
