Absolutely delicious food, incredible service, gorgeous restaurant. The tables for 2 were a little cramped so it's not ideal for a date night but I would come back again.

The food and location were both incredible. A beautiful spot for a date or a night out with friends. My only complaint is that the service was quite slow, but I understand it was a busy Friday night.

Also, my party of two was sat at a table seated for 4. After asking to be moved we were told no. Not the end of the world but the table was a bit awkward.

for $49, the steak frites is just not good enough. Cut of meat was OK, preparation OK, fries a bit to salty. It's just not $49 good.

Partner had the duck, which she liked a lot. Cocktails and wine a bit pricey. Overall the service was also just OK, too. I think the value is just not there. Maybe if you were on a business lunch and someone else picked up the tab it would feel OK

Went to see an opera and stopped in for dinner- we were blown away by the quality of the food. We each finished every morsel of food on our plates. The best dinner out we’ve had in a while- and we love to eat out!

We really love Boucherie but have not been in a while. This last experience was not great and unfortunately, we will not be returning. Service was great, almost too good because as we were still eating our appetizers, the entrees came out. I ordered the french onion soup, which was average at best. My husband ordered oysters and only about half were good. Onto the entrees, the burger we ordered was good. It had good flavor. However the steak and the creamed spinach we ordered was not. The steak was undercooked, we asked for medium and it was more on the raw side, and we had to send it back. The creamed spinach had no flavor and was very bland.

Ordered the steak frites and my steak was lukewarm and the fries were cold. Took forever to find my server and while she offered to replace the fries, I had already eaten half of the steak.

Overall dining experience was good. Server’s we’re not very attentive. They were more interested in chatting amount themselves. When you have to wave down a server to get more water that’s not good customer service. The music was way to loud!

Went here for lunch with a party of 5 for my wife’s birthday. Terrific service, wonderful food, great environment. My sisters burger was not made the way she liked and they fixed it immediately without issue. We all had a lovely experience, I would highly recommend it!

Great food. We order the pork and the salmon and two desserts, the pear with chocolate and toasted almonds and the chocolate tart. All was excellent. Wine from Bordeaux was delicious. Friendly service without being overbearing. Really pretty decorations for Christmas too. All around great experience. We will definitely come back our next time in the City.

We had Sunday brunch at the Boucherie in Union Square and it was fabulous. The Norwegian Benedict, Omelet, Nicoise Salad, Pommes Frites and Cocktails were all top notch. We especially loved the La Vie en Rose Cocktail. Service was attentive but not overbearing, the ambiance was very reminiscent of France and the holiday decor was really well done. We will be back!
