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.

It seemed like it was a busy night at first, the restaurant was full, but the service was so good, you could see that they worked great together.
We ordered a ribeye, no appetizers, and we got surprised when the Chef sent us apps on the house, since the wait time for the steak was 30 min to be prepared.
This is the first time something like this a restaurant has done! I have traveled a lot on 4 continents, and I was never surprised with something like this.
The steak was cooked perfectly btw!

Nice ambiente, prices too high for the level of service. Example: Sparkling water filled up with table water ( but very positive, when complaint about it, new Botte offered free of charge), Wine too warm, we Hand to ask for cooling down, glasses overdilked for a good taste.

We went there for brunch and tied the Egg Benedict and the the duck confit.
The food was great, i think it is the best French Bistro food I've had in NYC so far.
The menu items are a bit pricey but they definitely use great ingredients.
We will definitely be back for dinner.

The menu is robust and varied, and the dishes we had were solid (nice portion size too), but nothing in my humble opinion to rave about/set it apart from others. I thought the wines were overpriced. The service was very bizarre--they kept trying to take away plates when we repeatedly asked them not to. They also brought out the entrees at the same times as our appetizers. I suspect instead of remaking the dishes, they just left them under a heat lamp as my pasta was lukewarm and gummy.

Honestly one of the worst experiences we’ve had at a restaurant. Took forever to order drinks, never got offered another one either. Food was slow, and then when it was delivered was delivered at different times for my wife and I which is ridiculous. Took three attempts to order a bottle of sparkling water and two attempts to get a second bottle. Staff wasn’t rude, but wasn’t friendly at all - they looked overworked / disorganized.

Great food, and a decent amount of space which enables one to find an area where one can have civilised conversation without screaming. Service is decent, but they didn't get anything wrong. But a delightful French bistro feel with the added bonus that you can eat outdoors if you like.

Our dinner was great! We started with Mussels and french fries. The french fries were crunchy and very flavorful! We also shared raviolis with truffles and mushrooms. They were really done to perfection and very rich with the truffle oil. For our main course we had Beef Bourguignon with mixed vegetables. The beef was so tender and juicy, it melted in your mouth. Really tasty and best we had so far! The dessert was called the Pistachio Bombe Glacee. It had a chocolate wafer on the bottom and chocolate wafer with ice pistachio ice creamed molded with chocolate top and then topped with the best hot chocolate fudge! The waiters were extremely nice and helpful!

Made a reservation for my boyfriend and I's 6 year anniversary dinner. Absolutely love the ambiance and decor in this restaurant! It is large and airy, feels like you're in France. Service from several different staff members was great but especially our server Aaron. As far as food goes, unfortunately I cannot say that I was impressed with the flavors. We ordered the mussels appetizer, boyfriend got the steak and frites, I got the roasted duck confit with truffle. Portions were generous. Best part of the night was the delicious pistachio bomb dessert on the house! Then they also gifted us a signed copy of the restaurant's own recipe book! We were really touched. What a wonderful way to cap off the night!

This is our second time here. Everything was great! My girlfriend and I came here to have her birthday dinner. I left a little note on opentable and said that if Boucherie can do something a little extra for my girlfriend's birthday.

When we came in, I didn't really mention anything to anyone. So when we ordered our desserts, the waiter brought our desserts and one of them had a lit up candle and he greeted her happy birthday. Which surprised her A LOT. It surprised me a bit too that they remembered from that little reservation note online. I was happy that she got very surprised. I noticed on the bill too that they gave us one of the dessert for free! They also gave her a book of Boucherie with the owner, chef, and the waiter's signature and we really got surprised with that! It's such a high quality book about Boucherie and some of their signature dishes.
We were really happy with our experience.

As always, their food was great! We ordered the truffle mushroom ravioli, 40 oz. tomahawk ribeye and some bone marrow, and sides of fries and ratatouille. That ribeye, oh man, it just melts in your mouth. It's too good!
The only difference between our first and second visit is the service. The first time it was a busy night, while the second time was not that busy. Our first visit, the service was so quick and the waitress was on top of everything. On our second visit however, things took awhile. Maybe the server was just handling a lot of tables we don't know. But it was okay since we were not really in a rush. Overall everything was spectacular!
