BOUCHERIE is a traditional FRENCH brasserie and steakhouse, celebrating Joie de Vivre in the heart of West Village. 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 GRAMERCY PARK 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.

Good experience. Not great. Food is good, service very good. The place is a bit noisy but that’s the expectation for a brasserie. Also I felt that the place is a bit overpriced for what it is.

Girlfriend and I both got sick after eating here. Not blaming food illness on the establishment, but hard not to point a finger as we were both not feeling well 2 hours after our meal. Objectively speaking regarding the food itself, my girlfriend's NY Strip Steak was tough (Medium Rare), but I thought the Filet Mignon was fine (Medium Rare).

Overall quite disappointed considering the price point and will not return or recommend.

We celebrated a special occasion (end of graduate studies for one of our children) and there were 7 of us. Restaurant was very nice. Food was very good. Service was great. Only thing for me was the noise level which a little bit more than I would have liked. Things got better as the evening went by. Overall, I highly recommend for a special occasion.

Excellent birthday dinner. Food was fabulous and there was great attention to detail, which I really appreciate. Sent complimentary birthday cocktail to the table as well as some delicious gelato. Can’t wait to go back.

Really very easy to recommend.
We sat down at the bar to taste very soft and exquisite foie grass mousse, french artsian bread and bordeaux wine.
For diner onion soup with croutons submerged under the melted but crumbling cheese on the banks, stake tartare seasoned with cappers and shallots and a quail egg, escargots in butter lemon and garlic.
Duck leg confit with a delicately mixed sauce of peach, mushroom and garlic with homemade potatoes.
A beef bourgignon in wine and vegetable sauce, incredible.
Bouiballaisse of seafood in a broth of asafran with potatoes and leeks.
This time we change to a Napa Valley cabernet to harmonize.
The service at the bar was very attentive and knowledgeable to recommend.
The dining room agile but not rushed and very attentive to service.

Overpriced. Waiter didn’t even ask if I wanted a drink other then water. I had to flag him down and ask. Long wait. Went to the bathroom and went to sit down on the seat (after covering) and the seat fell off, the screws were missing! Just not a great experience for a NY restaurant. The food was point on, just need to to be more attentive to their guests.

Hostest was great and brought right to our table. A quiet one with a high chair as requested. We had a few awkward moments with our server. We asked about a kids menu for our 3 year old and she said there wasn't one which was fine. She said that if we had something in mind she could work it out with the kitchen. So when we asked later for a grilled cheese she said no. We thought that was weird because there croque monsieur on the menu which is about as close to a grilled cheese as it gets. Not sure why its not possible to "work that out" as she put it earlier. The eggs Benedict I got looked nice but was unseasoned and everything on the plate was cold. The potatoes, the English muffin, and worse of all the poached eggs. It seemed to me that either the kitchen staff didn't bother to keep these things hot during service which is lazy or they put it up in the window and let it get cold and didn't care to flash it before it went out. Also lazy since it was not busy at all. We wete excited to celebrate my Moms birthday there but after that disappointing and overpriced experience we won't be going back.

Went here for late lunch/early dinner with a friend. I selected the French Onion Soup which was very traditional and very tasty but not notable and at the waiters suggestion I had the "Cut of the Week" which was a steak fashioned from a rib eye roast. My associate had the filet. Far and away the filet was much better, the "Cut of the Week" was mostly grisly fat and not enjoyable (Perhaps 30 % of it was good). The accompanying potato and wine reduction was yummy but the steak was simply not worth the money. It was more than the filet and the filet was better by far. Next the dessert I would say the Pistachio Bombe Glacee was far and away the best part of the meal. I would go back to Boucherie just for the Pistachio Bombe Glacee and skip the "Cut of the Week". Did not meet my expectations.

I've recently had dinner here and brunch. The food is good, not great considering cost. Its spacious, so good for groups. Its a tough call, but I think based on prices, I wouldn't recommend. Particularly not the $44 wagyu burger.

Fuimos 2 parejas por el cumpleaños de mi marido. Todo muy bien salvo que 23:30 vino la recepcionista y dijo (textuales palabras): “son las 23:30 y y yo me tengo que ir a mi casa a descansar, podrían darme el número del guardarropa así les traigo sus prendas?”, es la primera vez que sentimos que nos echan de un lugar. Salvo ese incómodo cómodo momento el resto muy buen lugar.
La comida excelente

Food was good. We were seated right next to the kitchen window so it was a little loud and frantic. We had asked for more wine which didn't come so we asked again and we did get it. Service was great the first half hour but went downhill as it got a little busier. They lost the number on our coats for coat check so I went and found them myself. Overall everyone was very nice, food was good but I have to say we expected better for the money.

Foney French. We both excitedly ordered buliabaise, a ‘Special’ for the night. What we got was some
dry breast meat with a dark sauce
covered with uncooked vegetables.
Noise level barely tolerable.
Wines overpriced .
Sorry experience.

The steak was not cooked medium rare as the inside was just rare and the outside was overcooked to at least medium. Ended up just eating the rare parts on the inside.

Service was terribly slow. Would be understandable on a busy night, but it was quiet when we arrived. Food came out cold, which makes the wait worse, as we did not risk sending it back. Fortunately, the desserts were so lovely, the meal was saved.

Over the moon about the authentic Parisian feel of the place. Our salads - Kale Caesar and a classic frisse salad with a perfectly poached egg with the thinnest slice of toasted French sourdough on top were exquisite. The pot au feu, unfortunately was much too fatty - so much so that the broth made me slightly queasy. Also the carrots and potatoes were overcooked. This is otherwise a wonderful dish but it needs more TLC. Next time, I'll probably play it safer with the steak tartare.

Boucherie was exactly what we were looking for when we thought about meeting for brunch on Sunday. Roomy, fun, festive bistro atmosphere and lots of interesting finds on the menu. The only problem is the price. Meeting old friends and chatting away, I lost track of the amount of money we were spending: 4 omelettes, 2 sides, and coffee came to over $200 with tip. Basic plain omelettes...nothing special and certainly not worth the money. This festive experience comes at a price.

We told the hostess we came early for 7.45pm reservation, she mistakened it was 8.45pm. The quality of the mussel for appetizer was not up to par to any other restaurants that we had mussel before. The size of each mussel meat was no bigger than a nickel and most of them are skinny and tiny like a size of a dime. I ordered a pork chop dish, and later the waiter came back said it was sold out and keep asking if I want beef burgoneroin. The waiter seem rush for every dishes they came, asked many times excessively how were the taste. Overall it was an expensive restaurant for the quality of food and poor service they had provided.
