The service was absolutely horrible. Staff was inattentive and subpar at best. Empty plates and glasses sat on the table with no one checking to see if we were finished, wanted additional items, no updates about food orders. Overall food & drinks were fine, not great. Highlight was the bar service while we waited for our table, particularly a female bartender who was great.

A bit above average food but put pretty standard fare. Not a bad thing for brunch. The staff were a bit chilly but accommodating and more professional than not. Only real complaint was on drinks. Pretty watery. Even an ice coffee we ordered before we left to get us going. Weak hot coffee poured over 3 or four ice cubes. So semicool coffee about an inch up top and still warm at bottom. Tried to get someone’s attention but it seamed all staff had disappeared! Nice place. Good atmosphere. But don’t expect too much from food and drinks and all will go well.

Dark lighting not good to see menu.
Stuffed tomato and sausage excellent! However, as Anthony Bourdain advised never eat fish on monday and
this was true as I realised after first bite of my dish.
Not sure would go back with so many other dining options in the city.

We came for dinner for our anniversary, we got the Tomahawk for two, it melts in your mouth. For appetizer you have to try the Escargot, ask for John the sommelier, basically the staff is very professional and welcoming they know how to take care of you from the beginning until the end, starting from the hostess at the door. Definitely recommend it!!!

Our meal was extremely rushed. Everything came out on top of each other - our cocktails arrived and immediately after our apps. Then we saw that our mains were up before we were even done with our meal (and the expeditor saw it too - he seemed pretty angry at our waiter). But instead of re-firing our meals, they took our app plates and brought our main meals. It's not light food & for what is supposed to be a pretty nice restaurant, it was really disappointing and made the meal just not enjoyable. Given we had appetisers and main meals, the fact that didn't have time to finsh a cocktail and a glass of wine is crazy. We sat there for 15 mins afterwards to finish our glass of wine.

ALso, our waiter was awful. He messed up our order multiple times. We ordered cocktails - he came back 2 mins later to ask if we wanted drinks. Then he tried to deliver the cocktails to the table next to us. Same with our main dishes. I have no doubt the timing of our meal & being so quick was due to him not being on top of it.

Wouldn't go back - that's how disappointing the meal was. There are better restaurants in the same category of French bistro/cocktails, etc.

Very very disappointing.
In a restaurant with a good buzz, we were sat upstairs behind a wall. We could not experience a THING.
And we had a Reservation!! Walk-ins probably got better seating.
The service was very nice, waiter extremely attentive.
Food was mediocre at best. As my wife said, ( and she never complains, ) “I feel like I’m in a diner .” After spending $200- that included an omelet and a burger, we could have done better in Times Square. By far, our worst booking on OpenTable

I rarely write reviews but we had the best dinner at Boucherie. Tarik took care of us in everyway possible. The most impressive was the timing of the food. I'm a stickler for proper phasing of food and he checked in before firing up the steaks. A+ all around!

This was hands down one of the best restaurant I have been to in New York. I took my girlfriend here for our anniversary and we had an amazing time. The service and food was impeccable, make sure to ask for Rina as a server she was so attentive. If I could give more then 5 starts I would!

I am sick of only being able to describe deafening noise as “energetic”! This place is a zoo. Huge, cavernous with nothing to deaden the roar. It made dining uncomfortable. When we left, our ears were ringing.

The food is good, though neither my friend nor I were into eating beef that night, which is evidently the main draw. But the prices seemed high for what is offered. We are two different generations and neither of us thought the experience was worth a return.

Unfortunately, we were disappointed in the service and overall experience at Boucherie. While the appearance and aesthetic of the restaurant were wonderful, the service was borderline awful. Our waiter never introduced himself, only came over (frequently) to ask if we were "ready to order" and the serving assistants were constantly at our table, re-arranging things and taking things away, which made us feel very rushed.

The food was a mix of great and ok. The escargot was wonderful, but the steak frites au poivre was way too salty. When I asked if it was possible to have a side of bernaise, the waiter came back with mayonnaise and ketchup. I sense there was a language barrier, but we weren't able to actually converse because he wasn't at the table too often after serving our food.

Overall, disappointing because we were very much looking forward to this restaurant but I don't believe we'll be back.

I had a date in this restaurant, and thanks to the great service, food, drinks and ambiance, we decided to come back again soon.
We were seated at the food counter, and we could watch how the chefs were preparing and plating the food, and we were both amazed.
When I looked around, I could see that everyone was enjoying, and they had different type of tables, so if you come for a date, you can have some privacy, and if you come as a group of freinds, you could still feel the great atmosphere.

I took my girlfriend here for our anniversary. It was both our first time. I booked a reservation at 7pm, and we got there 5 mins. before. We got greeted by the hostess then got seated right away. The waiters and waitresses' service was phenomenal! Very quick and very friendly. They make sure you don't run out of water. They make sure you have the appropriate plates and utensils corresponding to which course of your meal you are eating. The complimentary bread and butter was spectacular! The mushroom ravioli was so delicious! The 36 oz porterhouse and the steak with peppercorn cream sauce with fries were cooked to perfection! The plates were absolutely beautiful to look at as well. My picture of my porterhouse does not serve any justice to how it really looks in person due to low-light dinner time.
Lastly, for dessert we decided to try their pistachio bombe glacee. We were so shocked as to how rich the chocolate was. And the composition of that dessert just blends well together. Definitely an experience. Worth the money for special occasions.
