Becoming stale. Menu does not change. Wine list limited for by the glass and at reasonable price points.
Absolutely fanatstic food in a beautiful setting. Next time I am in New York I will be back!
Always reliable for delicious food and wines; nicer range of choices.
not as good a value in any category as Cafe Boulud which is always excellent. However Bar Boulud is convenient to David Geffen Hall. Nevertheless, next time we have a symphony date I will look elsewhere, like Shun Lee West.
I had to send my main dish (duck) back as it was inedible. The mussels I had instead were fresh and big but under spiced. French fries were crisp and good, cake excellent. I found it annoying that at least 3 times I was asked whether I was finished eating.
Somewhat noisy, but excellent service and DELICIOUS food.
We arrived at the perfect time, just as most people were leaving for a matinee. Brunch was delicious and quite a bargain compared to dinner (prices and portion). I ordered a Bloody Mary and it was one of the best I've ever had. Definitely going back.
Extremely knowledgeable staff. 2 appetizers, 4 different entrees, 3 desserts and everything was top quality. Would highly recommend. Go before the prices start creeping up!
Greeted by friendly hosts. Service was excellent. Food lovely. Only downside, if it is a downside for some, the noise level is high. It didnt bother us too much. Great location if you are going to the Lincoln center.
I had brunch here on a Saturday before a matinee ballet performance. We had a reservation and were seated right away. The service and food were great. I had the French toast and my guest had an omelette and both were delicious and large portions. The atmosphere was very nice and every staff member was kind and courteous. I would definitely come back when in the area again. The restaurant is right across from Lincoln Center.
Fine meal. Only complaint: Wooden seat backs are uncomfortable.
Consistency is becoming a problem. Servers are unenthusiastic. Food quality and taste are declining. Becoming OLD.
the liver patee was ecellent as well as the duck and the coq au vin. The service was very good
Best place to eat an evening meal before a Lincoln Center performance.
The noise was such that we three could not hear each other without shouting.
Andrew and I had the special baked lobster with spinach. The lobster was overcooked, tough and very difficult to eat. In all, the least satisfying meal we have had and we have been doing Bar Boulud practically since it opened.
Our guest's duck entree was great, and the Trousseau wine she chose was really fine.
Still, if this had been our first time here, we would say we would not return because of our entrees. Our share of the price was $300 for a totally substandard meal.
Love the attention to detail at all Bolud restaurants. Wine choices always excellent
Excellent! Always a pleasure to eat at a Boulud establishment. Fresh, delicious takes on all time French favorites. Our waiter was a charmer. Perfect for dinner before the Opera, will return often.
Dined here before Swan Lake. Everything was exquisite. The attention to detail here is outstanding.
An awkward entrance, uncomfortably overcrowded as we waited for our table to be readied, did not prevent us from enjoying a truly splendid meal.
I never miss an opportunity to dine at Bar Boulud when I am in NYC ! Always accommodating staff, amazing food and atmosphere!
Though Bar Boulud may be a bit pricey, the food, service, and atmosphere are all very good. Not too noisy--even on Saturday evening--though the place was full. We had an excellent dinner.
Food was nothing great. Overpriced for the taste and quality. Go do brunch elsewhere.
We had a reservation yet were not seated for 20-30 minutes after the time that was confirmed. The hostess was rude and said everyone had to wait. The entire staff did not seem equipped to navigate the crowd. The noise level was ridiculous and it took way too long to have our wine served. We ordered the wine pairings yet the food for each course came without wine....we had to keep asking. Not a pleasant way to spend Valentine’s. Service outright sucked. Never wish to go back. It’s hard to believe this is owned by Daniel Boulud. Will never return.
They were busy because it was Valentine’s Day- menu was limited for that reason due to prefix which was expected. The service was top notch they have a lot of people on the floor making sure your glass is never empty from water or wine and you are not waiting ever to make a request for something. I had to make a change to the reservation and I casually mentioned that besides valentines it was our anniversary I didn’t want to make a big deal out of it I just was explaining why I wanted to make sure we got a table. I was pleasantly surprised when they brought a little extra dessert on a plate that said happy anniversary. It’s the little things that make people remember a place. That, and it didn’t hurt that the Fois gras and Duck were absolutely fantastic as was the macaroon with raspberry sorbet dessert! Thank you Bar Boulud!
Pricey but worth it foe a special treat. The Express Lunch was very good, three great courses.
I come here every nyc trip. Amazing food, ambience and value. Love it!
Dinner was delicious and our waiter, Dusan was outstanding!
Trending towards inconsistent cuisine. Highly variable. Service remains outstanding.
We arrived 10 minutes early and the hostess couldn’t find us a place to wait. She refused to ask other guests at the bar to move closer that we (2 people) would not have to stay on a side way. Then, our seating was delayed. The wait stuff did not care a bit to interrupt us any time he appeared at the table. Our dining took about 2 hours, at that time the place was pretty empty, the waiter just gave us our check. Based on that experience, the service itself takes a priority over the customers.
The duck wasn’t thrilling
Outstanding in every way..
$26 3 course special can’t be beat..better than Restaurant Week
tentive staff and great food. I love their restaurant week menu. So many tasty options! My boyfriend liked his truffled pork even though he couldn't taste the truffle. He loved the mashed potatoes that came with the dish. My salmon had nice crispy skin and was quite fresh. Our soup (french onion and Parisian mushroom soup) was tasty. The mushroom soup was quite filling and delicious. For dessert I had chocolate mousse which was made with dark chocolate. Quite smooth and airy. The mouse was topped with whipped cream. My boyfriend had the citrus tart which had great flavor but I thought it was a little too sweet. I recommend this restaurant.
3 daughters with our 97 year old mom after the ballet! She treated!
Delightful dining experience. The steak was perfectly done--crisp on the outside, but tender and juicy on the inside. And even the mushroom soup was impressive--very flavorful and airy.
We came after a Philarmonic concert—subscribers’ complimentary glass of wine was pretty uninteresting
BUT THE Restaurant Week menu was wonderful!!
We now miss the gougeres
Wonderful meal pre-opera! The service was excellent as well.
Food at Bar Boulud is incredibly good, reason why I visit this restaurant about once a month. This Saturday brunch was highlighted by the great service provided by Dusan; one to five, I give him a big 6. Thank you Dusan for making my brunch special.
My experience could had been unforgettable if the hostess would had use the empty back area more wisely, spreading people across instead of sitting us next to each other (making it imposible to talk to my date)...seriously, everything empty and she decides to sit people right next to one. I guess common sense is not that common.
Everything was excellent, except for the escargots. It tasted quite bland, as if it was poured out of a can. I would not have expected that at a Boulud restaurant. It was definitely not on par with the rest of our orders which, in contrast, were excellent. I regret that I did not ask for a replacement.
I adore Bar Boulud but have two suggestions:
1) change the menu once in a while. Cassoulet a great addition.
2) serve non- alcoholic wines. You have non-a beer but no wine. It's coming in fast.
