    I love this cafe, tucked in the Time-Warner Center overlooking Columbus Circle. The food is imaginative and tasty, the staff is efficient and personable, and the mini-brownie for dessert is just the cutest thing ever. I've never had a bad meal here, and I visit every time I'm in Manhattan.

    Perfect lunch spot for a reunion get-together among friends. There was something on the menu for each person's taste, and every dish was well prepared and delicious. Service was attentive and friendly. Though nobody really wanted dessert, we ordered *1* slice of the AMAZING chocolate cake to share--and nearly licked the plate clean! Pricey for every day, but the view can't be beat!

    The service was awful. Our food (3 salads) took forever to be served, well after customers who arrived after us. It was clear the server never put in the order. He never apologized, never asked us about coffee and we had to flag down another server to get our check. Thomas Keller would not have been a very happy owner. I expected more for $25 salads!

    Service was friendly and efficient. Food was delicious as always. I especially love the bread basket with bread shaped into ears of wheat! Main event is the view down looking along the bottom of Central Park. Glass of wine was a bit pricy at $17 but I'll be back.

    Made a reservation and arrived five minutes early, but the last table was given to someone else (not sure if they had a reservation). We had to sit at the “bar.” The two staff at the tiny bar counter didn’t say hello or offer menus or anything for a solid two minutes. They were literally an inch away from us washing cups.

    We went late afternoon and were welcomed to have mostly teas and coffees, and there was no pushback that we were not ordering food. (I had called to make sure beforehand, but this is also how it played out!) Great service.

    The waiter kept interrupting us to ask if we needed to order food, as if he was gonna kick us out if we would not order. It was late afternoon and the restaurant was not even full. What’s wrong with sticking to our coffee if we already had lunch?

    Met professional colleague for an afternoon coffee, snack and dessert. I needed to wait a few minutes for the person and the waitstaff was gracious and understanding. I made a reservation on line for a 3:00pm mid week meeting 3 hours before showing up and all was fine. Quite easy. Will return.

    Service was poor--waiter forgot some items and mixed up others. Couldn't gt his attention to ask for salt and pepper. The lettuce in our Cobb salads was tired. Cheese board, on the other hand, was first rate. Location and ambiance are great for lunch with friend(s).

    I like Bouchon Bakery -- mostly good food but was disappointed with the cobb salad -- too much lettuce and too expensive for a bowl of lettuce. Prices generally a little high. But it's a great spot and wonderful now that reservations are accepted.

    We ordered a meal with specific requests of no egg for one person and the meal was brought with an egg. The servers were not very with it. No other special requests were made by our group of four. Also not a terrific menu as one would expect big portions with not a lot of interesting or new ingredients. Tired of sautéed Brussels with bacon.

    It's the Time Warner Center, so take it for granted that it's not cheap cheap. On the other hand, the food is quite good and it's really a fun place to sit. The baked goods are all truly fabulous, even the bread on the sandwiches is a great cut above normal. Lunch soup and sandwich deal could not have been better. Dinner is actually wonderful value, and I've eaten their roast chicken many times. Always really good. And at Christmas the lights will amaze.
