Cute interior and ambiance. Service was slow and rather then bringing soup out ahead of time, food items were delayed to be sent out together. Silverware was the last thing to make it on the table. Had higher expectations for the French onion soup. The red wine base was overpowering to the onions.

We were celebrating my daughter's 25th birthday. Drinks were very expensive as was everything else on the menu. My husbands $92 steak was ok but certainly not the best nor worth that kind of money. My coq au vin was only ok. Dessert (the profiteroles) was delicious and actually fair priced. At these prices, I will definitely not be returning.

Overall disappointed about food quality compared to the other Boucherie in midtown. The $54 ribeye first came overcooked but was replaced with a undercooked one: medium rare is not that hard to achieve. The other element was the size of it (too small) compared to the other location. The ribeye was so tiny that it can never justify the price range.
My wife loved her burger, so I would advice everyone to go with this and avoid expensive dishes at all costs.

We celebrated a friend’s birthday. The partitions inside are good and I think they should stay for privacy. They also have a nice outdoor setup. I had the cod. My friends loved the Wagyu burgers. I will return and try some more dishes

$24.00 on my bill...no thanks Escargot was not great either...service needs lots of work. Batlhazar has nothing to worry about

The food is a bit overpriced. The burger was slightly dry, the pasta was drowned in butter, the moules frites needed a bit more liquid, and the cod was good but needed a side vegetable! The service was very good.

We ate outdoors on a warm spring night, and the service was excellent, the food was delicious, and the staff went out of their way to make it a special birthday dinner. The one vegan in our group enjoyed the Beyond Burger, but it would be great if there were one or two more veggie/vegan options on the menu. Other than that, a delightful dinner experience that made us feel like we were in Paris!

I live in the neighborhood, and work in this business so understand it. Its also hard for me to write this as I rarely do but feel this may help the business wake up a bit as many locals seem to feel what I experienced from whom I speak to. I won't be returning until the word of mouth starts to improve.....They were busy and clearly feeling the effects of it, which we understand. My steak was sliced and served chilled, despite being medium rare and cooked nicely, it was cold on the exterior and interior. You can tell by the exterior of each piece that it had been cut and sat for a wihle- not great for a 75$ bone in dry aged NY strip. The fries were excellent and server was quite hospitable despite the slow pace. Portion on the mousse was paltry for 23$, and it lacked actual richness of foie gras and was laced with mostly chicken liver or filler it seemed, such as cream and said liver. Snails were excellent value. Total bill with tax and tip for 4 ppl, 2 rounds of drinks, was $650. We shared 3 apps and had no desserts or after dinner coffee or drinks. YIKES.

We live in the Upper West Side and eat all over the city in varying degrees of restaurants (dives to Michelin star). This place is extremely overpriced for what you are getting. Just go around the corner for better/cheaper cocktails. 11$ for two soda waters... give me a break. Other then that, standard French bistro ambiance. Service is good.

The food and drinks were excellent however the wait service was lackluster. The server only returned to our table 3 times over the course of the evening - to take our drinks order - to take our dinner order - to take our dessert order. He never came in between to check on us or even ask if we wanted our water refilled or bread and butter replenished. At a French Brasserie this would be my expectation.

The ambiance was lovely and we did enjoy our meal, however not sure if I would re-book based on the lack of customer service.

Service is incredible slow. No coordination with drink service. You have a steak and wine shows up after you have done eating. The snails were burnt. The ribeye was mostly fat. For the price they charge, the experience is unconscionable. I would not go there again.

Wanted to take our dad for a steak dinner and we couldn't have picked a better place. Everything we ordered tasted incredible - we picked the Wagyu steak, the filet mignon and the boeuf bourguignon as our mains, accompanied by the white asparagus appetizer, the creamed spinach and the escarole salad. The service was lovely, too. Our only complain was that the escarole salad (which was on the menu as consisting of the greens, warm goat cheese and croutons) literally had two pats of goat cheese and not that many more croutons.

Cocktails were awful . Watered down . People dining were sending their meals back . The entire check honestly should have been refunded . I total dissatisfaction experience. Utter disappointment. The wagu wasn’t even wagu.......the pork I had was over salted and under cooked . Total chaos and disorganization. Truly a horrid experience . A rip off . The only nice thing about the restaurant was its interior . But you don’t go to a restaurant for interior design , you go for the food which was .....disreputable . Noticed many people felt the same way

This is a wonderful neighborhood Restaurant with great atmosphere and great food. We were a table of 6 and were extremely disappointed with the service and attendant who was assigned to our table. Dinner took over an hour to get served and it seemed impossible to place drink orders. Server didn't know of have knowledge of classic french cocktails which was unacceptable for a Restaurant like this....
