Only complain will be the lack of air conditioner during plain summer in New York. But he food and service were very good. I’ll be back in the fall and winter, no more during the summer.

Nice staff but avocado toast bad. Avocado was watery jelly. And I ordered a Bloody Mary that tasted like olive juice.
Eggs and croissants delicious

The food was good but the service was extremely poor. Not one server smiled the entire time we were there and they made fun of customers who were clearly visitors and not locals. The hostess consistently scowled and all of the servers were slow, inattentive, and rude. I highly do not recommend coming here.

Food was good but the service was horrible. Took 15 minutes to get the waiter to come back and take our dessert order after he gave us the menu. Took another 10 minutes before he remembered to come back to take our money. Each time I could see him look over with the “oh crap I forgot” look. We felt like an after thought the entire time during our meal. I get we aren’t dropping $500 on a meal but $200 is still a pretty penny.

If you enjoy high levels of ambient noise and a pretentious atmosphere then this is the place for you! The food quality and quantity is honestly not worth the price you pay.

Since I live in the neighborhood, the place is always crowded and read great reviews. Decided to try with some friends, was extremely disappointed with the food. Organic chicken was bland as was the mash potatoes. Rigatoni Bolognaise was mediocre and the Coq Au Vin was average. How can a French restaurant not get Coq Au Vin right? If you want better food for the price and impeccable service, I suggest Pastis.

Took an hour and a half from ordering to receive my food... Super busy, crammed at a tiny table and the waiter was not helpful. It's a great space, good indoor / outdoor options for seating but terrible service and its become very touristy. shame.

I lived in Greenwich Village for years and I was delighted to introduce my son to the area via this atmospheric and excellent restaurant. It has the Village vibe while producing very good, authentic French cuisine. We had the salad nicoise and a pasta dish with truffles and they were delicious and plentiful. I usually don't eat bread but you cannot resist Boucherie's bread basket! If you like dining outside, the "patio" on the street is great for people watching in the heart of the Village. If I was new to New York, I would make this restaurant first on my list!

I don’t think I’ve had a worse dining experience in the last 12 months. The food was simply a joke. Tasteless, badly cooked and of low quality
Not worth the money

A great dining experience is both the food and the service. And we had a great dining experience. Of course the food was delicious. What made the night special was the service. So special, in fact, that we came back for dessert on the patio after seeing a play in the Village. Wonderful night!

Good location, nice outdoor seating, but food was just okay. Onion soup was too beef based in the broth. Carpaccio was good but not amazing. Ordered a steak, medium, and the center was red and cold. When mentioned to the waiter he insisted it was medium. He did offer to have it refired, which we turned down, but a steak that is red and cold in the center is not medium.

The ambiance is great and service as well. But the prices are way heavier than the food deserves.
Get ready for spending at least 60 -70 dollars each, without any extravagancy.

Was slightly skeptical to book a res at Boucherie after reading some of the reviews but we had such a GREAT dining experience. Our server Dado was a pro- he made a couple of great food recommendations and always made sure our glasses were full. It’s worth noting that the restaurant was slammed. There wasn’t an empty table yet we still had several people waiting on us. Prices were also very reasonable, given the quality of food and the dining experience. Overall 10/10. This place immediately became one of my favorite dining spots.

Wow! We already had high expectations when we made the reservation for dinner on a Monday night. Not only were they met, but definitively surpassed

Our party of four decided to go directly to main dishes, so we can leave room for desserts. Wise choice. We ordered the place ‘s signature boeuf bourguignon, the steak frites, a great arugula salad and the Monday special, a generous a incredibly well prepared lobster. Crepes Suzette to share gave the final sweet touch that our meal and a great wine made extraordinary.

The service was as great at the food, with great suggestions and attention to the slightest details to make this an unforgettable occasion.

I HIGHLY recommend you make time to enjoy a superb dinner and a lovely spring-almost-summer evening stroll in NYC ‘s village afterwords.

I was with a group from out of town, and were very excited to try Boucherie, but unfortunately when we got there, they were out of half of the menu, including the Pain Perdu, which was our number 1 reason for visiting Boucherie to begin with. They were out of orange juice, steak, and sausage - pretty much, why even open for breakfast? It was all very disappointing.
