BOUCHERIE is a traditional FRENCH brasserie and steakhouse, celebrating Joie de Vivre. Executive Chef Jerome DIHUI, former Chef de Cuisine of Pastis, prepares a menu of French classics and timeless bistro favorites, in addition to the DRY-AGED STEAKS. In addition to an extensive wine list and classic drinks, Anthony Bohlinger (formerly of Maison Premiere) developed a beverage program that boasts an inspired menu of absinthe-driven signature cocktails.

Surrounded by walls of majestic wooden-framed mirrors and original Belle Époque posters, seating at our UNION SQUARE location varies among pristine white marble and wood bistro tables, cozy burgundy leather booths, a 32ft. handmade pewter bar, and an option for a 40-guest private room, to make the 222-seat restaurant feel timeless and intimate with vibrant, contemporary joi de vivre.

Everything about this restaurant is fine - good food, nice place, decent service - but the food is so overpriced that it isn't worth it for a restaurant that isn't exceptional. When a cocktail costs $18 and an entree costs $40, you expect a fine dining experience and this isn't it.

Four of us enjoyed a wonderful dinner Saturday evening. Each of us was delighted. The dining room could easily have been in Paris. The food was extraordinary. My beet salad was delicious, and my mushroom ravioli with truffles could not have been better. I will include this restaurant in my list of places to return on subsequent visits to NY.

Food tasty, as you would expect. I've been to Boucherie in the Village a few times. However, the service was not good. Not sure if she had too many tables , was new or was easily distracted but getting her attention was next to impossible. It took four tries to get a second cup of coffee, and that was after asking a different wait staff. One course was delivered very late-- clearly someone had forgotten it was on the order. And they got at least one order partially wrong. I'd go back.. and sit in a different section!

Decided to try this horrid place for sunday brunch based on the great reviews. The place completely lacks ambiance. Looks run down and even has fake plants and plastic flowers for decoration. It is just looks like a big and bland old cafeteria. The wine list is below sub par. Overpriced bottles of cheap champagne. You end up paying $100 for a $30 bottle of crappy champagne that was served HOT! One hour into our meal it was still not chilled. We ended up putting ice cubes in our glasses. The food is nothing to rave about. We ordered the wagyu and truffle burger as recommended by our waitress. It was nothing impressive for $44 a piece. Came with fries that were not great at all. You can get better fries at McDonalds, seriously! Ordered a side of bacon that we got 30 minutes and 3 follow ups later. Place was not packed so I can not understand why the slow service. Service is poor and very impersonal. Total bill was $220 plus tip for bottle of warm crappy champagne, 2 burgers, a side of bacon, 2 bottles of water and a coffee. I recommend avoiding this place at all means. Places like this should be shut down!

Food was solid. Sat us at the lousiest table tucked in a corner with no room even though we had reservations. Left wine glasses at our table taking up what little space we had even though we didn't order wine. Probably wouldn't visit again

So perfect for a nicer dinner in the city that doesn't break the bank. We came for our Anniversary and it was just so lovely! The ambiance was lively but still intimate.

The staff is wonderful and the absinthe cocktails are delicious! The menu ranges from reasonable to upscale pricey (but worth it!) The steaks menu is SO GOOD! Again, you can do something reasonable or treat yourselves to something special. Either way, it's nice to have options.

Food was very good and service was as well, but the table we were seated at was miniscule and we could barely set down our glasses. In fact, I knocked over a water glass just trying to reach for something because it was so crowded. So be sure to ask for a larger table if you are either more than two persons or like some extra room. Also, they decided to open the restaurant to the outside and it was a bit too cold so we shivered through dinner.

Birthday dinner! Pre arranged pre show seating , restaurant was pretty empty yet hostess sat a family with two small toddlers right next to us! Why? When rest of restaurant was wide open! Server, Julio, went into damage control and service recovery and moved us and was engaging and on the ball. Service and food were excellent would recommend despite the host staff blowing it!

For Saturday brunch, four of us were stuck at a table in the middle of a scrum that spilled over onto the sidewalk, and the noise level was defeaning. We asked to move to a quieter table in the back, but were not accommodated for various reasons, although we could see empty tables. My asparagus, smoked salmon and asparagus were bland, and another friend's omelet was overcooked. Friends who had the steak sandwich with fries said it was great and they did look terrific. Profiteroles with chocolate sauce were yummy, as was the pistachio bombe. A previous lunch and dinner at Le Boucherie were really excellent, but I guess a weekend brunch is too much for the restaurant to handle.

we spent a week in manhattan eating...boucherie union square's boeuf bourguignon was the greatest meal we had. the French onion soup was not too salty and the meat in the bourguignon melted in your mouth. our waitress, marta, was very helpful in our choices as I had many things on the menu that I wanted. but she said, the bb hands-down. she was so right. this place will probably get a Michelin star sometime soon...hope it remains like it is. yumyum
