Balthazar Ratings and Reviews
Overall a good dining experience.
Food solid but not great.
Cocktails very good
Liked the atmosphere and the vibe
Tho the decibels were way up there.
NYC prices to be sure but that’s what
One gets in New York.
I would go again next time I’m in New
York and would try the raw seafood op
Long weekend in NYC with my son, who had never dined at Balthazar. Reservations a must, no matter what time. Great table away from the front of the restaurant. Delicious lapin avec moutarde for Monday special. Wonderful moules frites. Maybe the best ever. Server very personable.
This place does not live up to the hype. It is a mass produced place that lacks any personalization. Also, our bill was astronomical for breakfast, which would have been OK if the food was outstanding, which it was not. It was pretty regular. I think I would head for a smaller, old time NY place.
The ambiance and the room are great. However, its one of those places that you are crammed into small tables one next to the other so there is no privacy and its loud. The food itself was good not great in our opinion. I was really expecting something exceptional and it was just good. For the money it did not seem worth it but we may have simply ordered the wrong dishes. My girlfriend and I ordered risotto and the pappardelle which were average. One of our other guests got the short ribs which she said were very good. For the money I just had hoped to be blown away and it was simply good
Late lunch at Balthazar. Packed. We waited for about 5 minutes before being seated. Great waiter - very attentive. I had the french onion soup (outstanding) and the Balthazar burger (very good but under cooked), my friend had the fruit plate (boring - like it was poured from a supermarket plastic tub for $13) and the macaroni and cheese (good, sort of bland and a bit runny). Our waiter selected a fab wine for me...very nice touch. I will go again and be more adventurous with my selections. Still a fun vibe and a nice place for lunch/dinner.
Had to stop for brunch at this notable New York spot. We got there early, but people were already eager to get in. Menu is overpriced to be sure, but we spent a good time talking. When it gets crowded it is hard to really enjoy the "atmosphere," but all in all we had a ball. Very nice server!
My girlfriend and I started with cocktails, our choices and the drinks were perfect ! We followed that with lunch entrees that were also excellent! We have been here numerous times but this experience seem much better than any of our visits! Service was excellent, our waiter Christopher made us feel as though we were special! He catered to our every whim! I would not hesitate to recommend Balthazar to anyone ! The very best!
Always frenetic, today was that at best. Host seemingly couldn't find reservation. She apparently is unaware that smiling is allowed. Server very nice but forgot ketchup 3x and didn't bring drinks until the food arrived (about 20 minutes after arriving). Rarely complain about pricing but $34 for a lunch pappardelle? $40 for steak frite? Rather spend $15 more on a ribeye elsewhere. $24 for eggs benedict? Good for expense accounts and tourists... Lunch for 2 is basically $100+. Food is good enough. Always been a hot spot so why change? Personally, I pass.
Charming as ever but now quite expensive; $19 for a martini was the most we paid in Manhattan. The oysters and shellfish are outstanding as always, the beet salad was great, but the veal cutlet although generous in size was completely over cooked and uninteresting. This is a pilgrimage place for us when we go to New York but I don’t know if we continue to make the trek downtown.
