Great food, service, ambience. Just wish I had more time. Plan to return soon.
I have been to La Boite en Bois more times than I can remember and it never fails to provide a wonderful dining experience. The food is always wonderful and the service is friendly and customer focused. This time we had the Trout Almandine and the Beef Bourguignon. Both were excellent.
I had informed them it was a birthday: nothing, not even a candle in dessert.
Food especially escargot extremely salty
Liver over cooked would have sent it back but we were pressed for time as were going to the theatre.
Well recommended as a staple locals place. Couldn’t have been more true. I’ll be back often to see what else is great after having the Beef Bourgogne and Salmon. Tart Tartin was worth it. Decaf coffee was actually dark and good.
Cozy little place, a little overly warm on a chilly evening. Food was nice--ravioli was a little rich but tasty. Filling enough to take some home to enjoy later.
Outstanding every time we visit. The gem of the UWS. Service, atmosphere, food, drinks and clientele all mesh beautifully.
This is a neighborhood restaurant. Did not realize only dining option was a fixed price pre theater.
Service was poor...rude waiters...one was pleasant...rushed...dry salmon..I enjoyed this place twice before...never again...
One of the best authentic French restaurants in NYC ! Great food, great wine list! Friendly and competent service and a great location near Columbus Ave. You have to know that the name of the restaurant is indeed "a wooden box", reservations recommended! It is sure that we come back soon!
Food was quite good and the service attentive. Tables are very close together so this is very intimate. Overall a nice experience.
Excellent service & attention to special orders. Will definitely return
Both of us had the pre-theater dinner and ordered the duck for the main course. It was very dry and tasteless.
Omelette was watery, hollandaise had no taste. A diner would have been better.
The perfect NYC French restaurant.
Always my place to go before or after the Opera and never disappointed. Food, atmosphere, service, all wonderful.
This place is awesome. The food, the service are exceptional
Always a great meal and service. It’s the perfect place for a pre-show dinner at Lincoln Center.
The food and service were excellent including the wine recommendations.
A bit pricey, but understandable considering the proximity to Lincoln Center.
We love La Boite's French food and hideaway feel, but this time, it felt too crowded, too noisy and too rushed. We know we can count on generous cocktails and authentic meals (smoked salmon appetizer, butternut squash soup, lamb stew, cod with olives and capers, cheesecake and vanilla ice cream with berries were right up to snuff). But there seem to be three or four extra tables jammed into this tiny space. Service was fast -- too fast? And we could barely converse over the unusually loud ambience. It has always been one of our four or five regular Lincoln Center spots, but we may have to re-think it.
We were in the city and going to Lincoln Center to see an opera. Our daughter had eaten here and recommended it. It was an excellent choice. The food was outstanding and the service was very good. I highly recommend it.
First time back in quite awhile as we moved further uptown. Food was very good, nice wine list and service was excellent.
Only complaint was desert, for $11.50 a serving , a postage stamp size of bread pudding. I never understand why a restaurant wants to end the meal on a down note for customers. Eat there but skip desert.
Excellent every time we dine here. Never fails!!!! Best food and service. Charming!
Food, on the whole, was very good. My smoked salmon and roasted chicken were excellent.
So were escargots, the duck and both steaks.
The out-of-shell mussels in soup was not a good dish...soup had a strange taste of some unidentifiable spice.
Bread pudding was OK.
Great bottle of Gigodas at a reasonable price.
This is my favorite place to dine in NYC---yes really. And I have been to Per Se (which is awesome). The staff here is alway professional and food is always great. I've been coming here for years and have never been disappointed. O
Great early dinner. Salad was so fresh. Shrimp and scallop entree was delicious. Looking forward to my next visit.
Forgetful waitstaff - menus, bread, water, ordering, check - all requested twice.
I like the brownstone setting. The food is very good value, tasty and delicious. The service is attentive. We were a group of three and we were not rushed on a busy Sunday morning.
I consider this restaurant one of my favorites in NYC. The menu has many choices, but the leeks appetizer, and the shrimp & scallops in a ginger based sauce are great. Cocktails are full sized. And the service is always right on.
To describe la Boite en Bois one needs only one word: Consistency.
Great food, great service and great ambiance every time . Excellent wine list too.
Must make a reservation.
My family and I have been coming here for years. The food has remained consistently good. It is old-fashioned French food that is very well prepared. I usually get liver (yes, I’m over 60 years old) and my husband likes the roast duck. The hazelnut mousse is the absolutely best dessert
I’ve ever had. The service is wonderful in this unpretentious gem of a restaurant.
Friendly, intimate, excellent food and attentive wait staff. You'll feel like you've found a well-kept secret that only the locals know.
Excellent experience -- food, service, ambiance. Best meal in a long time
Amazing Valentine's Day dinner.
As I've already posted:
For over 30 years, our favorite Lincoln Center area French restaurant - cozy, crowded, somewhat noisy and reminiscent of a Paris café. We go there for anniversaries, birthdays, Xmas Eve and Valentine's Day as well as other days. Food and service always very good.
This restaurant is a gem unlike any other restaurant in New York. May it continue forever and ever!
Very tight Seating; not a relaxing experience.
Very small overall space and spacing, especially for a larger person (260ls; 6'2"). Perhaps one too many servers, though all were quick and quietly helpful.
Very efficient service.
My date had delicious salad and I a well-prepared crab cake, if not the finest chunky crabmeat ever had, it was good.
Then she had the excellent lamb chops w roast
My entree was an ever-so-slightly over-cooked half-duck (!) with great seasoning and cranberry chutney (nice!) and haricots
Generous portions served! Then, the dessert combo of creme brulee, bread pudding , mousse auchocolate,fresh fruit medley w sauce, and a dark
chocolate-dipped strawberry was lovely--especially the first two selections(those were perfect!--and I am not a dessert person!
Excellent Chateauneuf du Pape Demi for $34: worth every cent!
I would like to go back for a less-cramped dinner and perhaps more often for lunch.
This was Valentines Day 2018 at 5:45/ Pris fixe: $80 plus wine and coffee. (-a tad expensive except for direct proximity to Lincoln Center.
Overall rating: A- , due to crowded quarters ONLY.
Great Valentine's Day special menu. We'll go again next year.
Excellent Food. Excellent Service. A great quiet restaurant located minutes from Lincoln Center.
I’ve been going to this restaurant for a couple of years but my experience on Saturday evening really left a bad taste in my mouth, and I’m not talking about the food. I was walking into the restaurant when a woman at Coat check demanded I remove my coat - mind you, I have been there this winter and this is the first time I have ever been barked at and forced to give over my Coat. She rudely pointed to a sign (that must be new) stating all coats must be removed. Fine, except that the entry smelled like smoke - whether it was from the lady or outside is to be determined. Ironically, halfway into our meal two ladies Sat at a table near us and had both their coats. It was clear they knew the owners as they were quite chummy with the wait staff. Speaking of which, we had 3 different waiters throughout our meal who were clearly not in sync as they would come over and ask us multiple times if we were ready to order, do we need anything else and two of them brought a dessert menu at different times. It took unusually long to get out entrees and we received our entrees about 10 min apart and one of them was cold. perhaps it was a busy night but the waiters looked annoyed to even deal with us.
The dinner ended on a very sour note when we went to retrieve our coats. I was not expecting to check my Coat, I did not have singles on me to tip. My boyfriend was putting my Coat on when she rudely and sarcastically began to yell “Thank you” multiple times and “thank you SO much” to get a tip. To be frank, her obnoxious and low class behavior did not deserve a tip . You should also not expect a tip if people are being forced to check their coats. Yet it’s a double standard for the women who knew the owners? Poor management of things like this add up and make me question returning to your restaurant. It’s funny how the french have a bad rap for their behavior, yet I was treated much better in Paris than how I was at your restaurant.
