Wonderful menu and delicious food. Service was excellent and topped off by a surprise birthday dessert! While A fun and lively atmosphere, the noise level is pretty higher.

Booked a reservation here when looking for a good Restaurant pre opera meal. Came highly recommended. When we walked up to the restaurant we honestly thought it wasn’t going to be more than a mediocre meal based on judging a book by its cover. We were wrong. We were very pleasantly surprised. The food was absolutely delicious, the wait staff was extremely pleasant and accommodating & the young sommelier was my favorite. Extremely knowledgeable and really got into explaining the differences from our narrowed down wine choices and helped us pick a really yummy Chateauneuf-du-pape. We would definitely recommend this place as an excellent pre theater restaurant.

We had an outstanding prix fixe lunch on the sidewalk during an exceptionally warm February afternoon. Food and wine were both delicious and we eagerly anticipate our return.

A thoroughly delicious meal in very pleasant surroundings. Our previous meal at Bar Boulud was under the aegis of the late night menu, which is rather limited and disappointing. (A terrible hamburger, drowning in its own excess.) The regular menu is another story. The pâtés were superb, and both the coq au vin and the cassoulet were delicious. We're definitely returning--but not after 11:00 PM.

Best decision for pre Ballet dining! The location is right across the street from the subway station and David H Koch Theatre so it's perfect. The food and drink was divine; Escargot was perfect, including the texture, I ordered the Duck a L'Orange to be prepared well done, and the "well done-ness" was en pointe. I wanted a good stiff drink and found perfection with the Vieux Carre which consists of Cognac, Rye Whisky and Sweet Vermouth. My friend and I visited NYC to pre celebrate our 40th Bdays and the meal at Bar Boulud followed by the Ballet was one of our special evenings. I told the staff this when I called to check on our reservation and were surprised with a complimentary dessert each, with a candle and a Happy Birthday wish! Outstanding food, service and atmosphere. Well done to all, and a giant Thank You for an evening to cherish!

The Restaurant Week menu was imaginative and top-notch. Genuinely French and a good value.
However, the noise was so overwhelming that my husband refuses to go back again for dinner.
Maybe midday is quieter than Friday night after 8? We can't recommend to friends because most of our friends like to be able to talk to each other (not scream at each other).

Soup/salad was excellent;however, the main course and dessert were underwhelming.
Service by waitress seemed more abrupt than welcoming. They kept on pushing wine not on the wine list that they slyly did not mention the price was $25 glass...at least a third more than the highest price wine by the glass on the menu. This seemed deceptive. Buyer beware

The food and service were excellent! Even though we were "fine dining" in a sense (during restaurant week), the portions were sizeable! I'm vegetarian and my companion is gluten-free and the restaurant accommodated all our needs.

This restaurant is not the expensive fine dining experience you might expect from the name Boulud. It fits the niche for simple bistrot food at a more approachable price. We were four for dinner on restaurant week and had a reasonably acceptable meal. The place is crowded with booths and tables very close together. It is also loud. The least expensive red wine on the list was good at $45. We were very disappointed with the food. The salad was way overdressed and the fish entre, though not bad, was less than pristine. We did not like the deserts we had (a lemon curd with a rock hard meringue, and chocolate cake that was not a cake at all. The restaurant 3 course menu cost $42 per person.
