Excellent French bistro food. Servers did not know whom at our table of four had which dishes, but otherwise friendly and helpful.

Food was very good. Service was average and not very attentive ( even acknowledging staffing shortages). It was okay but probably not worth a return visit with other better French bistros in the city

Amazing French brasserie with well chosen mix of wines by the glass. Escargot are perfect, duck confit outstanding and steak frites just right. Plus excellent desserts and wonderful service that helped guide our selections. We’ll be back many times.

I always like Boucherie for its ambience and the food. I'm a happy repeating customer. This time, the experience is as pleasant as always, but the outstanding service from checking in at the host stand to the bartender truly made a great impression! Thanks for making my random Monday night out so wonderful!

Service was awful. Menus were in the table and it was 10 min before the waitress stopped by. I was looking forward to have a drink to then review the menu and select my meal. Well not possible. The drink and meal order were taken st the same time. Very disappointed

Pricy but we had a wonderful meal! There wine selection was great. We ordered grilled octopus and escargot for appetizers. It was delicious and it was our son’s first time trying escargot. He really like it. We ordered salmon, cod steak for entrees they all were delicious. My favorite was the grand marnier crape.

Never disappointed with the Union Square Boucherie. We had the flap steak with bone marrow, which was delicious and very tender. We also had the cod, amazing! We’ll always come back for more.
The atmosphere is so beautiful in the Art Deco space with cathedral ceilings. It does feel like a trip to Paris.

Wagyu burger was overcooked and not seasoned or seared, I really didn’t enjoy it at all, our server noticed I hadn’t eaten most of it and asked about why, and when I told him, he took it off the bill which was very nice of him, and I really appreciated it.

Disappointing.

Not a restaurant week dinner, but decided to stay.

Despite a high bill, the restaurant probably lost out on at least $60 in alcohol because I would have had TWO cocktails if the first I had ordered could have come before my friend arrived, and we would have had white wine with the octopus (which was EXCELLENT, by the way) and then possibly I would have had two glasses of red with the 'steak'. We were able to ORDER the wine only AFTER we began our main courses, so I only had one.

After deliberation, ordered the Entrecote instead of the hangar steak - $10 more.

I couldn't even offer my companion a piece because it was not a steak I was proud to have ordered. Work to eat it; still picking it out of my teeth when I got home. Properly cooked - even a bit rare in some places (I ordered M.Rare) which I don't mind - but tough: it was work to cut and chew.

I wanted to go somewhere else for dessert, but I saw Tarte Tatin on their excellent dessert list. What arrived was 'a modern take on Tarte Tatin' perhaps, but NOT Tarte Tatin. Closer to an Alsatian tarte with butter and sugar. It was beautiful though, and tasty, so I don't mean to complain about it.

These are possibly small complaints, but this is a high end French Bistro, with HIGH end prices and the Entrecote was not comparable to the ongelet or hangar steak or Sirloin or Entrecote in SEVERAL middle range French Bistros and the price was closer to a steakhouse. I expect a good list of French wines by the glass (I don't mind higher prices to match $$$, but a GOOD list!) excellent meat and good predictable desserts in a bistro.

I also expect to drink too much!
