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.
Wonderful. A tradition when we come to NYC Great food, ambiance, and fun
The tipping policy is all about suggested, not obligatory charge. Unfortunately, waiters in many US restaurants believe it's vice versa and act rudely when disappointed.
Stay away from the so-called bouillabaisse on Friday nights. It’s nothing but a fish soup with about $2 of fish for $47. I called the manager over and started to explain how bouillabaisse should be served. He said I’m from Marseille and I know how it is served. Okay, then this isn’t bouillabaisse. It’s what we call bouillabaisse here. But it’s not bouillabaisse, and so on. He reluctantly took it off our bill. The frites were also over cooked and dry. Prices throughout the menu are getting rather high.
Always our choice when in city - always great staff, great food
It was great, as always
Never changes....crazy fun
Unbelievable crowd yet somehow restaurant kept order. Great appetizer and great lunch entrees. Only complaint is being sat at a table that you cannot get out of unless staff moves table = to close and on top of people but I get it.
Great food and ambiance!
Lovely spot. Second time there. Food was great. My only issue is that the tables are on top of each other! Apart from that, all was great.
Sitting in the main room in Balthazar on a cold winter morning is one of the great joys of New York; it's so cheery and lively and animated. Honestly, it feels like Paris.
Friendly, warm, great food, great wine list (though short and simple).
Restaurant extrêmement bruyant. Malgré une réservation confirmée, atteinte de plus de 30’! Une organisation pitoyable et clairement les habitués vous passent devant. Nourriture quelconque mais prix élevés.... Je déconseille fortement.
Our lunch at Balthazar was good. Service would have been better had the restaurant not been so busy. It took at least 1/2 an hour for our drinks to arrive. My husband’s steak was good as was my fish.
Thank you for a wonderful afternoon lunch and conversation with friends! It is always a pleasure to eat at Balthazar! The food and service are exceptional. Very fun place to stop for lunch while walking through the neighborhood. Reservations are a must.

We had a really delightful evening at Balthazar. It was a special night out to celebrate and reconnect with friends, and it couldn't have been better. We spent a lazy, lovely 5 hours at the restaurant, enjoying dinner and conversation. We never felt rushed, the wait staff was attentive without being in the least bit annoying - observant of our needs without feeling like we were being checked on all the time! It was a terrific evening, and we couldn't have asked for anything more satisfying!
One of us did wish the Crepes Suzette had been served flaming, but otherwise, food was delicious!
Good food. Very crowded and loud! Definitely need a reservation and will most likely see a celebrity!
As always, a great experience. Be prepared for tight quarters, a loud and festive atmosphere, fantastic food and a highly professional and friendly wait staff. I LOVE Balthazar and will be back as soon as possible (maybe after the holidays!)
We had to wait 40 minutes past our reservation which was a challenge. The service at the table was great but obviously that much of a delay is disconcerting
Its always a special place to dine.
Balthazar is one of the restaurants that we like to visit when we go to NYC. The food is excellent; the service is superb; the people watching is a “not to be missed” treat! That the restaurant was packed on a Wednesday night proves how popular it is. Always a great experience.
I don't go for the food or value. I go for the tradition. Always a wait, even if you have a reservation. Crowded and noisy. Regardless, I will continue to visit when in NYC.
I have lunched several times past the years at Balthazar. A definite must and an incredible experience ! The food , the staff , the ambience delicious and impeccable.
Only once I waited more than my reservation deserved but was compensated with champagne and very well seated.
So the only problem with this amazing restaurant is that it is is always full which only proves its excellence and popularity!
Will most certainly continue coming when in New York!
Not impressed as we were seated right on top of another table and near the waiters area so it was always crowded... not going back
Every time I'm in NY I go to Balthazar. Great scene, great food, great service!
So glad I reserved through Open Table otherwise we would have had a very long wait! Food was good. Service was a little better than adequate but it was noisy. Much prefer at breakfast when it is less crowded!
Hostess was very welcoming and helped us get the table we asked for! Food was amazing, as always. Delicious king crab legs, the Balthazar salad, the salmon....near perfect!
Great brunch in a lovely atmosphere. Well worth the money
I was in Soho for 4 days and stayed across the street from Balthazar in the Crosby Street Hotel. We went to a variety of restaurants while there. All of the restaurants were great until we went to Balthazar for breakfast on our final morning. The food was average at best and the service was horrible. Our waiter had one of those attitudes like we were lucky he was taking care of us. It literally took 30 minutes for our coffee to arrive at the table once we sat down and we never got (or even offered) a refill. The funny thing was the man at the table next to us and his wife must have been affiliated with the restaurant (waiter, manager) because all of the service staff kept coming by and saying hello and shaking his hand, etc. This couple got their food immediately, got coffee immediately along w/ continual service of champagne, beer etc. It was an absolute joke. We actually started laughing at what bad experience we were having - thinking surely it can't be this bad. The breakfast at the Crosby Street Hotel is significantly better and the service is impeccable. Do yourself a favor and go there instead of Balthazar.
I ADORE this restaurant. Every time I am in NY, I go. It's a very vibrant scene with a classic bistro buzz. The food is fabulous and the service perfect. LOVE this place always and forever!
The place and everything about it was great, except for the food. The food looked great, presentable and from the description, sounded delicious. But when actually eating it lacked in so much flavor and we were left completely underwhelmed.
We enjoy dining here whenever we are in NYC. Great food and ambiance.
Tables are too close to each other. Several occasion during my dinner the waiters keeps knocking our tabke while waiting the table next to ours.
Fabuleux à chaque fois et le personnel le plus aimable et courtois qui soit.
Wonderful fun night!
Excelente. La sopa de cebolla deliciosaaa.
Everything is always fabulous at Balthazar.
Great brunch spot. Excellent and friendly service. Definitely will go back when in NYC
Great place and absolutely love the latte BOWL!!!!! Amazing!!!
Uno dei migliori brunch di New York
