What a wonderful meal. Food and service was top notch. Pricey but this is NYC. We had a few other meal over the weekend, including a Michelin starred one, but we both agreed this was our best meal, hands down.

Michele was a consummate host for our dinner. He suggested the escargot to begin with, which was savory and flavorful. These were accompanied by La Mascaret and an Aperol. For the main course, we enjoyed two of the Entrecote grill steaks, which were seared to perfection and juicy. We enjoyed a nice Cote du Rhone which Michele recommended. The evening was a culinary delight, and I will return again. The food, hospitality and ambience make Boucherie a magical destination.

Our server, Riley, really made this a great experience for us today at brunch. She was friendly and very knowledgeable. She guided me to a great brunch cocktail and the wine she chose to go with the brandade was perfect. She was attentive, without being obtrusive. She even noted that an air conditioning duct was leaking near us and moved us before the dripping became a problem. Really, one of the best servers we have had in the city. We truly appreciated her knowledge, her demeanor and her attention to detail. She truly made us feel welcome. We will be back.

A nice restaurant week luncheon, turned into a comedy with the restaurant manager calling and texting me. It seems his employees didn’t process my credit card ( his admitted error) and the hostess was so distracted that she did not take my card info down correctly. Ridiculous
The food? My wife’s meal was superb, my steak was over cooked and cocktail horrendous.
Let’s just say not a good experience.

The lady in the front door was full of attitude like why are you here. And took me to my table without saying anything. I think she did not understand the concept that she have to welcome the guests(!) Also the waitress was in the same attitude. He behaved like he was working in a fast food joint like what do you want!!
Honestly food was excellent and no problem in that but management should have to educate the staff means the manager is not experienced I believe

Been here many times and will continue to go, but never order the roasted chicken. Terribly dry to the point where it was inedible.

Very disappointing experience. As a French person this had nothing to do with a good French meal. Decor was there but that's it. Cocktail tasted like water and was so bad I had to mention it to the waiter which I never do. Supposedly "foie gras" mousse tasted just as bland abd could have just easily been sent back. We couldn't finish it. Steak was ok but just ok. At $50 you would expect better from an entree. Our appetizer came a good 10 minutes before our pre-meal cocktail, we never got the bread we asked for. Our $25-a-glass wine was mediocre. The whole experience felt like the restaurant was set up by a bunch of consultants who don't care much about actual good food but definitely overcharge for the French cliché they are selling.

Celebrated a special occasion Sunday morning with our pals at Boucherie Union Square. Ordered delicious cocktails and champagne, their famed baked basket of croissants and pastries, plus four outstanding entrees. The service outside in their parklet was outstanding. We’ll definitely be back.
