Oh what a night! Wonderful dinner shared with wonderful people. - my guests, the wait staff and Chef Bouley himself! What more can you ask for - great food, superb service, excellence all around. Special thanks to chef Bouley, Naoufal Echaki and Jasmine made us feel like VIPs and friends simultaneously. Thanks again for the epic culinary experience!

The portion was extremely small. I guess 3 corse tasting is not for a adult....but paying 100$ per person & getting out hungry.
The stuff was so nice & give us compliment dishes and high quality food & service. In the end, it was not meet the strike zone. Just too bad. I used love this place so much....

The food is good, and can be adventurous but the full tasing menu was a collision of flavor. Too much going on and in spite of emphasizing health, it was hard to digest. The service is friendly and kind but when we asked for no salmon roe the first thing we were served was salmon roe.

I went to PerSe the day before I went to Bouley at Home. I would definitely recommend Bouley instead of the three-star Michelin to my friend. The food here at Bouley is great and the service is so friendly. Really worth every penny you pay. The interior design is also such a huge plus to the dining experience.

We are foodies and this was one of the great dinners of our lives. We were treated like old friends from the moment we arrived (late) till the moment we left (bearing chocolates, cake and a giant loaf of sourdough as gifts). I never liked monkfish, but their preparation was incredible. From beginning to end, the meal was masterful and the presentation astounding. A truly memorable anniversary dinner.

The Bouley teams’ passion for great food, wine and dining experience, and their ability to deliver upon that passion so effectively makes Bouley at Home a very special place. My husband and I discovered Chef David Bouley in 2010 when visiting New York and have been huge fans since. His earlier location was very special, with a classic European charm. His new location is contemporary and it’s refreshing to come for a great meal and for men not have to wear a jacket, particularly in the summer. Chef Bouley creates creative, wonderfully balanced dishes that bring out the very best in the fine products used by his kitchen. Sea Urchin in an apple green “cloud”, truffled porcini flan with Dungeness crab, thinly sliced Long Island duck with kumquat purée and a gorgeous plum sauce are just a few examples of the stellar lunch tasting menu. Equally impressive is the long tenure of many of his team members - it says a lot. This is an experience not to be missed!

Nothing went right our entire night. The dining room was only half full on a Saturday night, yet the kitchen was incredibly understaffed. We were there for 3.5 hours for a 3 course meal and left before our dessert arrived. The restaurant advertised that they handle food allergies, but brought me multiple dishes with gluten and dairy, despite having indicated allergies to those. In the middle of the night I woke up violently ill. Not an expected Bouley experience.

Seriously mediocre experience. Not sure how food this flavorless came out of a Bouley kitchen? We had sea bass, hake, NY strip, buffalo -- and if you had blindfolded us, I could not have told a difference among ANY of the dishes. Bread was good. And two very small plates, and dessert + 2 glasses of wine were $250. We needed a NY slice after. Super disappointing.

We have been to the Bouley in Tribeca many times and always loved it. This experience was very different. Our dinner took over 3 hours just for 3 courses. We had to ask 3 times for a check. The waiter was inexperienced and wasn't clear with the menu items. And the food was indifferently prepared. Very very disappointed.

Bouley never disappoints. The 5 course tasting lunch, while not inexpensive, provides good value. I had never tried sea urchin before, but with the encouragement of the waiter, I ordered it and was not disappointed. The porcini flan is my most favorite dish at Bouley. The lobster was tender, the salmon was excellent, oysters tasted briny like the sea. Wine pairings were all good and interesting selections. Service is comfortable, not stuffy. My favorite restaurant!

Counter seat experience was amazing, being able to watch the kitchen in front of our eyes. The chefs were all very friendly and professional, such pleasure to be around. How they set the table ware was also very unique. The food was all so delicate but sophisticated, visually entertaining, and delicious. Chef Bouley also was there to greet the guests. Only concern was, the lightening seemed too bright for a dinner setting, and little children were also around, which made it bit uncomfortable. Next time, may request for a seating that is not too close to the entrance. Overall, the whole experience was exceptional.

We chose Bouley at Home for a friend’s birthday lunch and could not have been happier. Everything about it was very fine - the beautiful home-like elegant decor with gorgeous bouquets of fresh flowers on every table, the perfect and friendly service, and most of all the amazing five course meals with a few extra treats as well. It was a most memorable special occasion!

What an amazing night out in NYC thanks to Bouley at Home. My friend has a number of food constraints (no gluten, dairy, nightshades, etc) and the chef went above and beyond to make her meal just as fantastic as mine. The quality of the ingredients are incredible and the attention to detail is superb. Plus, it's a treat to watch them cook the food while you're sitting at the table. Could not ask for a better meal - I'm still dreaming about the scallop in sea broth. Divine.

This had to have been an off night because from reading historical accounts, reviews and walking past the restaurant many times and seeing patrons enjoying food, etc. I am saddened by my own experience. I was expecting star service and taste.
We reserved the theatre menu and arrived on time. Yet it took 25 minutes before anyone attended our table, so much for the theatre menu. Then another 15 minutes before ordering and no one offered the wine list, etc I had to ask the waiter who was walking by to please get this ball rolling. Amazing. The crackers with meats finally arrived. I ate them with water. I was really looking forward to tasting the sea urchin, but it was buried under the very pronounced lime foam which overtook the dish, and the urchin was rendered flavorless and non existent. Next the forager mushroom dish...and the tuna was overcooked and bland. When I see toro, I expect it to be almost raw. There was no red or pink center. The lamb was chewy, and without any flavor. It tasted like beef. I even gave my friend a piece to try, thinking it was me. But no.
The deserts were okay, nothing cuisine about them.
I am so confused about what happened. I have eaten at many Michelin Star restaurants and since this was a new ONE, I wanted to try it.
Finally, the wine pairing was a huge disappointment. The wine did nothing for the food and this is where I was most sad. The marriage of tastes did not exist, and even on their own, the wines were only passable.

What a wonderful way to spend the afternoon catching up with a friend and enjoying splendid food and ambiance, not to mention delicious wine and attentive service while doing so! This was my first time to experience Bouley at Home, but definitely not the last. The five course lunch held continuous new tastes and beautiful presentations. A great New York day!

Despite pointing out that we had virtually no service for significant portions of the meal, the manager did nothing but invite us to come back again. Our water was left empty, our wine bottle inaccessible and ignored, and my wife's entree not cooked as she requested. Mr. Bouley himself was also in attendance, presumably aloof to the significant issues in his service and kitchen -- perhaps too busy sprinkling garnishes on random plates, living on an outdated reputation, like a dinosaur, surely on his way to extinction.

Easily one of the best dining experiences of my life! Each course was exquisite - amazing flavors and presentations, just the right amount of food to allow you to enjoy the next course, and each flavor had its place in the dinner. I'd be hard put to choose a favorite, but particular standouts are the starter kuzu crisps - 3 flavors to get your palate ready for the wonders to come; the oyster and sea urchin; the sable; and the best scrambled egg I've ever eaten. Lovely, surprisingly affordable wine by the glass selection. The staff was friendly and helpful, especially appreciated since I was dining solo that night. It was a huge pleasure to talk to Chef David Bouley and watch his calm, efficient manner as he worked with his staff.
