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.
We were with another couple who received their entrees 15 minutes before ours came .
The food is awesome!
Excelente comida y muy buena atención, voy todos los años es comida muy fina
I come back
One of my favorites , consistently good food and lively atmosphere.
Fantastic, acceptably loud, great service and great good.
Balthazar was a great place to grab a meal and enjoy that classic french bistro experience. The wine list is extensive and if you are into Oysters then you will not be disappointed by the selection. The Streak Frites was superb and the service was quick. If anything to complain about is that the noise level is not energetic it is loud. If you are looking for quiet conversation then this is not the place for you but if you want a boisterous group that feeds off the energy around you then you will not go wrong. The tables are small and you are sardined in with other diners but no different from other restaurants in New York in that regard. Ultimately this is an NYC classic and one that should not be missed.
I Love this Place, The perfekt Food, The Atmosphäre....perfekt
I my opinion Balthazar has the best crème brûllée in NYC.
Fantastic but TOO NOISY and tables are really all together... not enough place to sit confortable
Excellent food and service
Had a great evening and birthday celebration while in New York
Balthazar is consistently good, classic French bistro food. Decent French wine list too. I have not had a bad meal there in 20 years of dining. I went to lunch expecting to order one of my favorites, their excellent steak tartare, but the Monday special of grilled lamb chops over warm white bean salad caught my eye, and it was delicious , perfectly seasoned and grilled to perfection. It is also amazing how relaxed and friendly the staff is for such a busy place. P. S. They also serve a fabulous breakfast with treats from their bakery next door.
everything is perfect! don"t change anything!!! people are great,service is great,food is great and vine selection is perfect1
Went for lunch with a reservation. Getting seated was somewhat confusing and noisy. I believe that it was because of the time. Would recommend going on off hours. Once we were seated the food and the service was excellent.
Terrific food, great ambience, friendly and accomodating servers.
Gran lugar, comida servida al punto.
muy bueno el ambiente,cada vez que visito nueva york lo disfruto
Really good food, the rissoto was outstanding, great service
never ever disappoints. personal calls to confirm reserve - mike made notes for maitre d' that we had an engagement soon after dinner. were warmly welcomed and served by each staff member. thank you, thank you, thank you for your attention to every detail that makes each patron feel special and the dining experience enjoyable
One of our go- to places in nyc. Have been here many times and it only gets better and better.
We had a fun dinner at Balthazar. Our waiter was outstanding- professional and pleasant. I had the French onion soup and it was so so. I loved the Goat Cheese Tart and the Beet salad appetizer. We also really enjoyed the salmon, which was prepared excellently. The hamburger was delicious and so were the French fries. Balthazar is a place we always enjoy anytime we are in New York!
Always excellent restaurant , visita obligatoria en NY !!
Always a great experience with amazing service
A must when we come to NYC
As brilliant as ever. Wide choice of dishes, all were excellent. Service attentive. Noisy ambiance. Jam packed for brunch. Love it!
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.
Poor tuna salad
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.
I had the best waffles I’ve ever eaten! They melt in your mouth. Yum!
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.
I come to this rest every time I am in New York and each time it is a delightful experience. I love the oysters and the wine selection. French cuisine at its best. Great shopping all around on a Spring Street. Good start to a ladies’ trip! Highly recommended.
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.
Excellent service wonderful food energetic and definitely a place to be seen
