As a French native, I recommend this place even if the food clearly an Americanized version of some famous French specialities. I really appreciated the cheese with bread and butter, just missing some saucisson with it! We took one dish for two and had way too much meat but we could have a bag for later. The meat was really good but the vegetables were too greasy. I would really like to try their dessert selection next time!

Started with a soggy Caesar salad that was swimming in dressing . Then I had the steak frites.. the meat was tender and flavorful and the fries were perfectly cooked. Where they really feel down on the job was the service. The place was packed. Tables are so close together that you can barely move. The waitress was not very friendly and the food came out so fast. They were obviously looking to turn tables quickly. This place is too expensive to feel rushed.

Ate at Boucherie for the first time. The ambiance brought me back to cafe in Paris. The service was impeccable, and the food was amazing. Great wine list at moderate prices. Enjoyed a wonderful Pinot Noir from Burgundy. The noise level was not bad, considering restaurants in NY are usually exceedingly noisy. Had a great conversation with my colleagues. Will definitely visit again!

I went to Boucherie-WV for a quick supper before a theater performance. The restaurant was quite empty at 6 and pretty much thereafter. I had steak frites aux poivres and a green salad. The meat was absolutely delicious, done perfectly, and the sauce was peppery without being sharp or overwhelming. But the price was high, a bit too high for me to return regularly.

When we first got seated we weren’t to keen on our table as it was near the door and we felt a cold breeze every time it was opened, however our thoughts quickly changed as the restaurant got busier and it got warmer. The once chilling breeze became a welcome treat. Our server was great. I ordered a drink and he mad a recommendation to try instead, and it was delicious. Or food was excellent. I had the asparagus salad and my husband had the steak tartare as our starters. We ended up splitting them as both were so good. We split the filet Oscar, and the crab cake was one of the best I have ever had. It was a perfect potion to leave room for desert. I’m not a big sweets eater, however the pistachio bombe glacé is not one to be missed. The ice cream is made in house and is so light and fluffy. We were tempted to order another it was so good. Nothing was a disappointment. If you live here or are visiting it is not one to miss.

Really good food, nice wine selection. I really enjoyed the atmosphere, it's a fancy casual, where you can eat escargot and drink nice wine and not feel weird if you're not dressed in business professional wear. But for a French place I was expecting better cheese. I love a nice cheese plate, and the Brie/Camembert were just okay.

I was at Boucherie for a Sunday brunch. The place is beautiful which is why I really wanted to visit, however, the brunch menu is the same as everywhere else and prices are ridiculously high. A simple omelette with mushrooms and goat cheese was $24-26, unnecessary really.

Good food. If I am going to a pricey restaurant I expect good service. We literally had to go find our server after 30 minutes of finishing our food and ask them to please clear the table, bring a coffee and the check. Would recommend, but Balthazar is way better.

We were very disappointed. The food was ok, but not worth the high price. Our over-eager waiter interrupted our conversation about the menu several times to point things out, but didn’t understand our questions and sometimes gave nonsensical answers. Even though we were upstairs in the quietest area, it was still much too noisy.

Nice room that makes you feel like you are in Paris, but the food is so grossly overpriced relative to the quality that I cannot recommend. Lower the price by 25% and it may then be worth a recommendation. Otherwise go elsewhere for better food.

The meal was very good. The majority of the party ordered the porterhouse for 2 which was cooked perfectly for medium rare. I ordered the salad nicoise which was underwhelming and uninspired. There is free bread and butter and pickled vegetables brought to the table as a free starter.

The meat (fillet mignon) was not delicious as I was expecting!
We were seatting close to a door that was left open from the waiter/waitress every time he/she went out and so we could enjoy quite fresh/cold air during our meal. How can you work in a restaurant and not pay attention to this?

Food very good, place very well decorated and nice ambiance. I just didn’t like that I asked to be seated in the platform between downstairs and the second level and the hostess give us the stupid excuse they were expecting a big group to ho there. Meanwhile they started seating people in the platform a few after and no big group or any group went there. That kind of stupid lies make people regret choosing places for special occasions like mine was. I really wanted a better seat and not being behind a tiny table and in my side a wall that obstructed my view. Literally if I wanted to get out of my seat I had to move the table away. Service in another hand was very good.

Zena was a fantastic waiter who was very accommodating to a family with some specific needs. Our food was great and everyone was pleased. Also, despite being out of the pistachio dessert, Zena surprised the table with two additional desserts for the two birthdays at the table. Very memorable and enjoyable experience.
