I love this location - I think it's quintessential New York, and I bring all my visitors here to enjoy the food and atmosphere, and a break from all the sight-seeing -- it's a great find! HOWEVER, the last time I visited, after ordering champagne and a full course breakfast with a group of four, the wait staff asked us to leave because they needed the table. As a patron of many places throughout the city (and other cities!), I was SHOCKED by this. In all the places I've dined, refined and more causal, I have never experienced this -- shame on this behavior, and what a sad experience at such a lovely spot. There are plenty of polite ways to let a patron know a table is desired -- this was so easily avoidable!

Mushroom quiche and Cobb salad were perfect.

Server was inattentive and pre-occupied. He twice forgot my colleagues coffee. Location is very loud, so not great for a business lunch when you need to hear what is being said.

The bread for the foie gras has evolved to much smaller over the years, and nobody offered more bread. Aspic sour gel has replaced the previous fat on the terrine top (a good decision). The chocolate shuffle never disappoints. Even late in the day, and even during the holidays giving wait servers a pep talk to be energetic, genuinely happy, and create an atmosphere of JOY is something you need.

Used to be better. Prices are up and the food isn't impressive. The tuna nicoise sandwich was a giant scoop of tuna and a couple of olives. Expensive and underwhelming. Stick to baked goods - those are great.

A hidden gen in the Time Warner center. The quality of food remains high a this scaled down version of Bouchon. While it looks like a mall food court operation do not be fooled as each item on the menu is expertly prepared. Service is perfect. Enjoy.

Great view if you are seated facing the expansive windows onto Columbus Circle and Central Park as we were! Totally delicious eggs Benedict & bananas foster French toast. Pastry basket was a big meh, which was surprising. Stupendous coffee with a smooth, dark cherry undertone. Service so-so; I was surprised to be hurried out at the end after a lovely meal.

Bouchon at Time Warner Center is inside the Time Warner Center on the 3rd floor. It offers great views via the floor to ceiling windows of the Time Warner building. Fantastic service, great sandwiches, salads, and typical French eats. Service is equivalent to that which you would expect from an upscale restaurant, yet not snobby. I dined in the evening. My partner ordered a sandwich and I ordered a chocolate souffle. The souffle comes with a vanilla creme anglaise. Though pricey, this may be the best chocolate souffle in NYC. It is not obnoxiously sweet, and it is perfectly moist in the center. You must dine in the sit-down portion of Bouchon to be able to order the souffle as it is not available from the take-away Bouchon Bakery, but it is well worth it. After our bellies were full, when my partner asked to pack a bit of his leftover sandwich to take home, along with one of Bouchon's delicious yet small warmed breads, there was no judgment. Service was attentive, but never overbearing, and always came with a smile. Bouchon at Time Warner Center is an excellent place to have a fantastic relaxed evening bite.

Bouchon is Thomas Keller's take on a Cafe. He is so wonderfully creative and meticulous in the preparation of the freshest ingredients. He, additionally, has the nicest staff. Although the setting is quite frankly an upscale mall, Bouchon is light and bright with a marvelous view of Columbus Circle and the Central Park beyond.

Terrific lunch choices. Although lighter fare, I have allways been happy and full by my exit time. Try to save room for dessert. If you're full, take dessert to go. Best bakery in manhattan.

3 out of 4 people in our party were very dissatisfied with their meal. I learned why the special salad featured shrimp --they urgently needed clearing out; better described as iodine salad. The waitress was completely inattentive after taking our order. We would have had dessert to get rid of bad tastes in the mouth but were totally unable to gain attention, although the restaurant did not appear busy. We thought it would be an ideal choice before opera in the Rose Theater. It was a dreadful choice. Never again. The opera was wonderful.

Friendly waitress but incapable of figuring out what the special quiche flavor of the day was - and lackluster service. It wasn't even that busy!
We were almost done and they seated a family of 4 on one side of us and the grandparents at a 2-fer on the other side. Needless to say the grandchildren kept getting up and traveling to see their grandparents. Very annoying - we were pretty much done by that time however if it was in the middle of our meal we would have asked them to switch seats.
Can't really blame the restaurant - neither the parents nor the grands seemed to think this was a problem or to rein in their kids.

Took friends visiting from London for dinner before a show at Jazz at Lincoln Center. Love this place for lunch also. High quality food, lovely atmosphere with great views. My only suggestion is that for the price they charge for a glass of wine, it should be an 8 ounce pour. Also I believe it is wine only, no cocktails, which can be disappointing to some.

Affordable Thomas Keller: What’s not to love? The food was simple but delicious, the view over Columbus Circle is a delight, and the service was warm and helpful without being unctuously overbearing. The nice selection of half-bottles on the wine list makes it possible for two people to have more than one wine without over-indulging, which came in handy at this birthday mini-celebration. I discovered this restaurant when it first opened several years ago, and it remains a neighborhood highlight.

I had the Croque Madamme and it was quite salty. The bread was not crispy enough. I don't like the bread they used. The flavor was underwhelming, especially for $19.
Extremely loud music from H&M across the hall was problematic, but their manager took care of it.
Service was ok, but we waited too long to be greeted, then for our order to be taken.
Also, a waiter should not reach across you to pour your water, leaving a water trail all over your utensils and menu.
