My friends and I had a great brunch experience. Our server Gabby and the manager both checked on us and took great care of us throughout. The food runs a little high in price but was delicious. We didn't feel rushed and were able to enjoy our time there unlike other places in the village where you're either constantly ignored or pushed along to flip the table.

My friends and I were physically ill after our meal due to heat exhaustion. We were put upstairs in the corner and couldn’t even finish our meals because we were so hot. The food was very good, wish that we could have enjoyed it more.

Overall, disappointing. We had a table outside and were seated right away- but things went downhill from there. We shimmied in to our seating cubby hole, making sure not to booty check the nearby table or the bulky partitions. It’s already stifling hot during a New York summer and the partitions just kept the furnace like air socked in and stagnant. We waited for 50 minutes for our server to acknowledge our table. This was after my date went to the host stand to let them know what has happening. We exchanged knowing glances to the table next to us (who was seated shortly after us) of WTF. I understand servers can get in the weeds, but just a quick drive-by and a “I’m your server, I’m so sorry but I will be with you shortly” would have remedied the frustration. He finally greeted the other table but they said to see us first. He took our order- no preamble, just “sorry for the delay. What would you like?” and left without taking the other tables order. The other table was finally greeted by who I’m assuming is the manager, then both of our dinners were underway. Food was delivered quickly and was decent, with no real complaints from there on. The server offered a dessert on the house to make up for the very late greeting but by then we were hot, sweaty, full, and ready to go home. New York is supposed to be known for its restaurants and service. While the food was decent, not the best I’ve ever had, the service was disappointing and put a damper on a Friday night out in the City. Not a relaxing experience and did not live up to the hype.

Beautiful room. Steak frites was great. Usually steak frites is made w/ skirt or hangar; this dish used a full-on NY strip. Our waiter was terrific. I was trying to choose among three wines and he initially recommended the least expensive of the three. I inquired about the other two - in essence, gave him two opps to upsell me and he stuck w/ the initial recommendation. And a good recommendation it turned out to be.

Just know, the room is set up NY/French style - small tables very close together. We were okay with that, but if you're not comfortable w/ that kind of setup for whatever reason, you'd do well to steer clear - or sit outside.

We enjoyed our dinner at Boucherie. Great ambience. Great service. Wonderful escargot, steak and burgers. But $48 for Cod with lump crabmeat and the only crabmeat was the menu text? Not right.

The service was incredible from the serving staff and their knowledge of the menu and wine list was incredible. Our server was patient and answered all our answers with detailed recommendations. The food was delicious and well presented. The only sour start to the evening was the lack of professionalism and promptness by the hostesses. They seemed to not communicate with each other and told people in my party 3 different versions on whether we had a reservation and whether we could be seated. One hostess could not find our reservation after my name was given by a friend. Instead of suggesting that she searches by my phone number, she insisted there was no reservation. It took another hostess to try my number to find it when clearly my name was on the list. Otherwise the experience was wonderful and we were impressed with the professionalism and quality of the restaurant!

Trouble conversing with the waiter. Orders had to be repeated several times. I tried to order a Salad Lyonnaise with greens substituted for frisee, a request that's routinely granted. I was told that was not possible.

Boucherie has really stolen my heart with not only their delish food but also their phenomenal service! It’s rare to find a restaurant
where servers truly curate a memorable experience for their customers and that just shows how much they really care. My husband and I travel to NYC from Philly often and always stop at Boucherie for a meal. Can’t wait to go back for more!

Having been to Petite Boucherie, I was happy to check out their larger restaurant on 7th Avenue. It did not disappoint. The food was fresh and delicious and the staff was attentive. The main restaurant captures the essence of a French bistro and their added sidewalk dining area is great for people watching. A wonderful afternoon!

This is unauthentic French cuisine. Duck confit would never be served with a brown sauce that does not fit at all, and potatoes had nothing of “sarladaise”. The pâté de campagne was poor with too much chicken leaver. Snails are not testy. The place is pleasant and wine was good though. French tradition deserves much better.

one of the waiters was very sweet but the other was really cold and unfriendly.

two of our fish dishes (sea bass) arrived undercooked and one steak was not good but when we alerted the waitress she called the manager and had all our food redone and gave us a dessert on the house.

the crepe suisette was great, highly recommend that!

Service was lovely as was their patio. But the food disappointed. The pasta was underwhelming for $33 and needed salt. The beyond burger, the only vegetarian entree other than the pasta, had ZERO seasoning and the bun was dense and tasteless.

I loved the food. It was high quality and delicious. The actual server was very nice and attentive. The bussers were a little confused and brisk. However, the prices of entrees are extremely high. I can get quality French cuisine elsewhere for much less truthfully. I liked our table up on the rise but it was small and it was too warm compared to the rest of the restaurant

The reviews were quite positive. That’s why we decided to go there. The service needs to be improved. Quite slow.
Pours were small for the drinks and price.
The food was ok, nothing special.
There are so many better restaurants for the money.
We will not be returning to this restaurant. .
