My granddaughter and I ate at Boucherie after seeing Blue Man Group. This was our 8th annual mutual birthday celebration. I made the reservation and indicated on the form that we were celebrating our birthdays. Five out of eight times this is ignored by the restaurant. Not this time! Boucherie remembered it was our birthday celebration when we arrived and provided candlelit desserts for both of us. The food is delicious and the service is excellent. I highly recommend it

The food is very good and the atmosphere is pleasant, but I still think it's a little pricey for what you're getting.

We loved our brunch here! It was exquisite! All our entrees were perfectly cooked and craveable! My husband had the eggs Benedict, the Holland side was sublime. My son had The Croque Madame. Pastries were perfectly French!

Disappointed...I have previously dined at Bouchiere’s other location in Union Square and had a wonderful meal and experience. Based on that impression I booked a table at Bouchiere’s West Village location for our anniversary. It definitely was not the same. The chicken was dry to the bone and we felt very rushed. We didn’t have time to finish eating or talking before we were badgered with ordering next course. We noticed that it seemed to only be our server as the table next to us had a different server and they were not rushed. We planned to have a nice dinner and conversation but it ended up not being very enjoyable. Needless to say we will not be going back in the future. Disappointed.

The service was top notch! There was a pianist which made the atmosphere very pleasant. We had a great time at The Boucherie, we started with a salad it was perfect! I ordered fish and we also had wine. The sorbet and crème brulee where amazing! I will be back!

Lovely, lovely dimmed lights as the soothing piano plays as you have that wine. The lamb chops, are everything. For someone who is very particular with how it is served, I am impressed. The scallops was fresh as it can be and pastas are spectacular. In other words, I would come back.

Our server made some wonderful wine and appetizer recommendations. We ordered the escargot and were served a reasonable portion for two people. Four could comfortably share this appetizer. We ordered the butcher block for dinner. The accompanying sauces were phenomenal, not that the exceptional cuts of beef needed them. Our only wish was for the sauces to be packed with our to-go box, but that was a minor inconvenience to our wonderful experience.

Lamb chops lamb chops lamb chops - that’s says it all All the dishes are excellent. The steak is just amazing We took a friend for her 69th Birthday! She is a lamb chop devourer and even she share one chop because the rack was so generous When you go have desert and get the crepes suzzett one of the best I’ve had in awhile. Service is impeccable

Food was very good but wait staff was poor. No “here are today’s specials” simply “what do you want to eat” for taking our order.

The first impression of my birthday dinner reservation was at the door with staff who seemed unorganized and unfriendly! Iwas asked three times for my name and twice by the same person. Our server and food was excellent. The noise level was unacceptable for my taste. We expected a quiet French restaurant experience.

I had a big birthday dinner here, and the staff was wonderful! Food was delicious. We got a wide variety of things ranging from escargot to salad for appetizers and steak to branzino for entrees, and all were delicious.

Should be good for a special occasion. BUT- Over priced. Bad service. Okay food. Seems like they are trendy enough not to have to try to bring in reservations.

Excellent for Sunday brunch in the west village. Friendly service, but the noise level is high. Everyone seemed to be very happy to be there and relaxed.

I don't know how this restaurant got such a high rating because the food was subpar to say the least. My friend and I ordered several items including the French Onion soup, house salad, mussels to start, and then a burger and the stuffed cabbage for our mains. Nothing was good except perhaps the bread and butter at the beginning! And for subpar food, it was expensive too. This was the worse I ever spent $131 dining out. Will not return again.

Fun dinner, great service, good food but the prices are just too high. $28 for a cheeseburger? $49 for a bowl of beef bourguignon? Those prices just detract too much from the overall experience.

Overall, really nice. Would have liked more engagement from our server. He was nice, but it felt pretty transactional.
