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.

We had a fabulous meal in this charming restaurant. It was a rainy Sunday night so it wasn’t super crowded but the hostess seated us on a banquet right next to a woman who had no concept of how loud her voice was or that perhaps others weren’t super interested in w dry detail of her upcoming wedding. We probably should have asked to move but as they had paid the check I was hopeful they’d leave quickly (they did not) That was the only downside to what was a truly lovely restaurant. Our food was delicious and the service was good. I would go back but ask for a round table in the center of the room.

My best friend and I just finished having a terrific dinner at Boucherie Union Square. We each ordered Steak Frites au Poivre and it was cooked to absolute perfection. The restaurant was definitely busy, but the service we received was very attentive. Our waitress, Sanja, was so sweet and really helped us navigate the menu since it was our first time eating here. We ended the evening with the Pistachio Bombe Glacee (absolutely delicious) and were even greeted by the restaurant’s lovely GM, Jolie. Awesome ambience, service, and food from start to finish!

Bartender was fabulous, best ever. Initially gave me a chipped glass and I asked if he could kindly remake the drink bc I was nervous there was some glass in the drink. Not only did he remake it, he was so apologetic and comped it. So kind! Amazing service, this is a lost art in Manhattan.

The highlight of the meal was the dry aged steak - it was the best steak we have ever eaten. Tender, well prepared. Delicious.

The staff was polished, but not too stiff. Friendly, we chatted with the manager and the staff member. They were engaging yet knew when to leave us to enjoy the meal.

This was our anniversary dinner and the staff noted and went an extra mile. We got an extra dessert with "happy anniversary" written in chocolate on the plate.

Well done all around. We will be back! ;)

My cassoulet was hearty and authentic and went very well with a nice glass cotes du rhone (by the glass list). I was with colleagues from work and our party of 7 was able to talk and yet there was a nice lively ambiance. The wait staff was attentive and kept us well serviced but without hovering over us.

Went to this restaurant after reading the great reviews. The restaurant is beautiful . service was very good .. food was very average. French onion needs more onions. Escargot was pretty good. French Fries were from Burger King. Beef Bourguignon was average. Meat was good but sauce and veggies were average. They also put bacon in the dish not necessary at all. For the price not worth all. Good luck won’t be back

The place is loud and cramped, The service was uniformly bad. Food runners practically threw dinner on the tiny table. Waiters disappeared after taking our order. The sommelier visited us only after we were almost done eating, and then interrupted us with maddening frequency. AND the steak was dry and flavorless.
Terrible experience.

My guest and I had high expectations upon arrival to this exciting space, and we were happy to wait a bit longer for a table outside. The service at the bar was quite good, and we had a chance to review the menu and whet our appetites. Sadly, our particular server for diner was more interested in having an extended conversation with another table. We and the two tables next to us had to repeatedly remind our server that we had not received our drink or appetizers for over 20 minutes. When the two steaks we ordered finally arrived, both requested at medium, one was raw and the other well done. The manager corrected this error with replacements, but in the end it was a very long wait to get it right. Perhaps with a more attentive server and in the kitchen, one could have an excellent dinner here.

La comida deliciosa y abundante. Si van, lleguen con hambre porque un platillo es vasto.
El lugar muy bonito y tranquilo, perfecto para una comida con amigos impecable.
Y lo mejor de todo es el precio muy accesible.
Lo único malo fue al principio el servicio del mesero con múltiples resbalones pero o dejó que opacara la excelente comida que tuvimos.
Lo recomiendo muchísimo!!

We had a wonderful birthday dinner for my husband. The lighting was perfect, noise level just right, and the service was impeccable. Our waiter was especially personable and even signed a book about the restaurant as a birthday gift. The food was good, not great. Thought the salmon was missing some flavor. I would still go back and order something different.

We had a great time, food was delicious, service was impeccable. Our manager Benny made sure we were having a great time. Try the escargots , foie gras and Faux filet bercy(dried aged strip on the bone) Also best creme brulee I have ever had. Our somm Octai recommended an amazing bottle of wine ( Lespault Martiac, Pessac Leognan ) which paired very well with our steaks. Definetly, will bring my guests here.Thanks Boucherie team!

This was a surprisingly good meal in Manhattan. We were able to get a last minute reservation on a Friday evening. The food was very good. We had the ravioli with truffle mushrooms and the Steak Frites. The dessert was also delicious - Profiteroles and Crepe Suzannah. Our waiter was excellent. The downside is that it’s very expensive and cost $250 for two. We didn’t even have a bottle of wine - rather two glasses and a cocktail. The other downside was the noise level. Very, very loud. That being said we had a lovely evening and it is a firm recommend.

We went twice during the same week. The first rime was excellent. The second one it was good. The octopus was salty and the quail a little bit dry and strong flavor. The service was also better the first day. The restaurant is noisy.
