Great space! Awesome taste...take the date!
The last time I go to La Boite en Bois. Every time I request a corner table at the restaurant it is ignored. Got sandwiched right next to the kitchen so there was a constant parade of servers. Also, I never knew who my server was. I had to flag down waiters constantly. No attention given to diners. I saw the other tables were having the same problem. The noise level is deafening so you really have to shout and the food, well , eh! I've tasted better French bistro food. For the price it is a rip off. So long La Boite en Bois!
Food was excellent. Service also excellent!
The tables are oh so close and the space oh so small, but still it is a charming and delightful restaurant. It has been here forever and I hope it will stay forever.
Having been choosing La Boite en Bois regularly for over 20 years, it is one of my favorite adult restaurants in the Lincoln Square area. The food is outstanding, service is attentive, atmosphere is adult.
Love this place. Wonderful for occasions. In this case it was my wife's birthday.
Enjoyed a lovely dinner for four with excellent service, lovely wine, and delicious food. This gem of a restaurant always exceeds expectations.
Excellent food, presentation & service!
Always consistently delicious!
We came as a family with two children to have early dinner before Nutcracker performance at Lincoln Center. I read good reviews about this restaurant and liked the proximity to the Lincoln Center. The food was good. The waiters and the service was very good. However , this is a very small family type restaurant. Right behind us was a group of people talking, laughing, cursing so loud we could hardly place the order and hear the waiters. Usually in a French restaurant people talk softly and the whole ambiance is calming. Our whole experience was ruined by this inconsiderate group of people. F words were in every sentence they screamed as they were laughing and drinking. I felt embarrassed in front of my children. We don’t use this kind of language at home. We came at 2:30 pm for a family lunch. We didn’t come to a night club. I told the waiter about our experience and she apologized but said nothing could have been done. We shoved our food as quickly as we could so we can leave as fast as possible. Horrible experience.
I've been to La Boîte a number of times with a friend who lives nearby. It's a lovely French restaurant with an interesting menu and good food with pleasant and attentive service. I'll definitely be going back again.
Cute atmosphere, good cocktails, large menu without it being overwhelming. No long waits for food at all.
Consistent -- best martinis and calves liver in town!
Our first time with you - and CERTAIN not to be our last.
Excellent cuisine and service! Very much like being in Paris without having to leave Manhattan!
They seem understaffed so the service was poor but the food was quite good.
Food was excellent,dessert not quite as good.Charming and intimate, perfect for pre theater at Lincoln Center
What a hidden gem. The food is beautifully prepared and presented. The service is attentive and unobtrusive. Completely on point. More importantly is the quality; delicious food. The lobster bisque, seafood crepes and endive salad were absolute perfection. There is great care taken in the preparation of the food and the tastes are divine. Oh and treat yourself to the chocolate mousse. You won’t regret it.
La Boite is a long time favorite and they never disappoint. The escargot was on point, the sausage with lentils was very good and the main course of the duck was spot on.
This place just keeps serving good french cooking
I love this restaurant but the service is a little slow especially when we sat down. The food is traditionally french, delicious and well presented.
Always a consistent dining experience. Authentic French European cuisine. Excellent service.
The only surprise was that the dessert was not included in the dinner Prix Fixe. Granted that the Prix Fixe did not say that the menu included dessert, we had never run into a Prix Fixe that only had an appetizer and a main course. Other than that, the dinner was great. Wait staff was funny. Everyone was packed in like sardines in a can. Its great if you are sitting near nice people which we were. Had great conversation and clinking our wine glasses with co-diners. Who says New Yorker aren't friendly? Give them great food and great service and everyone is happy. many were repeat customers. We will be too!
Good food. But the prix fixe dinner menu is a bit pricey.
The setting was lovely & very similar to a French bistro. The food was delicious. Everything was great so would definitely return & highly recommend.
For a restaurant that makes ordering from a pre-theater menu mandatory, the staff were oblivious to the timing of the service. The wait staffs’ attempt to act as a team resulted in a tragedy of the commons - when every table is your responsibility, no table is your responsibility. We had to box up half our entree and all of our desserts. Half the fixed price menu options had upcharges. The attention to detail was completely off for the price point.
The restaurant really is a wooden box. It has the charm of a little French bistro. The food we all had was wonderful under the fixed theatre menu which is the only menu available before 7:30. 3 of us had the salad of the day and it was delicious. One tried the onion soup and said it was good as well. I had the duck which was tender and moist along with some great sides. Others had the shrimp and scallops dish which was also very good. All the desserts we tasted were great as well. The only drawback to the restaurant is that there are about 10 steps to navigate down to the restaurant. We will be back in any case as the quality of the food is very good. Get there early if you have a 7:00 show, as dinner can take upwards of 90 minutes to enjoy properly.
This is a lovely restaurant. The food, service and ambiance...delightful.
We came here before the opera one night and really enjoyed ourselves.
Very cute place, definitely an old folk’s hot date night spot 😹 but very quiet and relaxing dinning experience. Food came out quickly and was delicious. It is a prefix menu though.
The food is excellent and, while the restaurant is a bit cramped, it works.
I love neighborhood cafes that have been around and try to frequent them as much as possible.
Unfortunately, this was such an ordinary brunch I doubt I would return.
Best think was the bread.
Sad to say but I think this place is going down hill. We had a 6:45 reservation so just as the pre-theatre crowd should be wrapping up. I do NOT recommend this time slot. It was at least 15 minutes after we sat that someone came to offer us water and that was all we were offered. We were not asked for our drink order until the 30 minute mark. The food was a bit blah. The fish way too salty and sauced and the duck a bit overdone.
Great food and drink. Gracious service.
I had a 9:45 reservation. When I arrived on time, the manager said they were done for the evening. There weren’t enough customers for him to stay open and honor my reservation. He said he had called and left me a voicemail, but I had been at the Lincoln Square movie theatre with my phone turned off. He has done this before to us. It’s infuriating.
Great neighborhood place.
We were meeting old friends for dinner and knew conversation would be an important part of our experience. We remembered from a previous dinner at La Boite that despite its small size and closely arranged tables, the restaurant remains relatively quiet. We had an early (6:45 pm) reservation, the time when there is the price fixe but no a la carte menu. The price fixe, fortunately, provides as many choices as most French restaurants with several salads as appetizers (along with traditional dishes like pate and snails) and several fish, meat, poultry, and vegetarian choices for entrees. I had the day's salad of watercress, the roast chicken, and an apple bread pudding for dessert. My husband chose the cod. Our friends chose a special seafood ravioli appetizer, and the cod, and an arugula and beet salad and bronzino. We all thought our meals delicious and attractively presented. Portions were generous. We shared a bottle of Pinot noir.
Decor is plain but comfortable. The service was attentive.
The leeks vinaigrette was perfect. The coquille St. Jacques was done in a totally new way in my experience but delicious. The Tarte Tatin melted in your mouth. Add to all this the friendly attentive service and we had a thoroughly excellent experience!
Greeted warmly. Delightful meal and service.
Food was excellent as usual. I had the veal scallopine special which was delicious. We always come here before we go to Lincoln Center and are always satisfied.
Very nice, Prix Fixe pre-theater dinner. Many selections to choose from. Cheerful staff and very good service. Really loved the sausage and lentil appetizer. We arrived when it was virtually empty and it was amazing; every seat was taken when we left.
Never disappoints. Food is always delicious and the service is friendly. The brunch offerings are varied and reasonably priced for the location (one block from Lincoln center ).
We try to have dinner here every time we are in NYC.
