Tout était parfait (la nourriture était excellente et le service du sommelier non seulement compétent, mais aussi très amical) jusqu’au moment de récupérer nos vêtements déposés à l’entrée à notre arrivée au restaurant, et pour lesquels nous avions reçu un ticket de vestiaire.
La jeune fille préposée au vestiaire a d’abord servi les personnes derrière nous, arrivées après nous.
Puis, lorsque nous lui avons donné notre ticket de vestiaire elle est revenue avec des vêtements qui n’étaient pas les nôtres, ce que nous lui avons poliment fait remarquer. Elle nous a répondu que c’étaient les vêtements correspondants au ticket !!! Nous lui avons demandé de résoudre le problème, ce à quoi elle a répondu qu’elle ne pouvait le résoudre !!
Ce comportement est inacceptable et inadapté à une adresse de ce niveau.
Nous avons été obligés d’appeler un responsable puis de partir avec lui avec une lampe de poche pour finalement trouver nos vêtements... et sommes partis sans avoir obtenu la moindre excuse de la préposée au vestiaire.
Celle-ci n’a, à notre sens, rien à faire dans une adresse telle que Boulud Sud, dont elle dégrade l’image.

The food was good but ridiculously overpriced. I ordered the lamb chop special and it was two very small and simple lamb chops with a small side of potatoes, and the price was $45. This is the worst example but in general this restaurant is unaffordable.

We had the tasting menu which is chef’s choice. None of our party had allergies but one was pregnant which we didn’t think to mention. However one course was a ceviche and she could not eat raw fish. The dish was whisked away and another provided very quickly. Nicely done. This was the first tasting menu I have had where for some courses each person had a different dish. The food was fine, the sommelier helpful, the service smooth and all contributed to the celebration I had in mind.

When we booked the reservation, we didn't realize it was Pre-theater price fixe. The waitress was not accommodating at all. We asked to substitute dessert with a side vegetable, she said no, we asked for a different kind of bread, she said it was an up charge, we didn't mind paying the $65 price per person for dinner, however, she could have done something to accommodate us. The food is always great here. I won't go back during a price fixe menu. The service was also a bit unusual. At least 3 people came over to our table to interrupt our meal and ask how our appetizers were--That is too many interruptions to ask how my salad is--Very annoying meal .

Waiter needed more training. Said it was his first day, and it showed. Did not know how to handle a gift card. Served my granddaughter’s salad to me. Had to wait for mine.
Food was inventive but too spicy in some cases, such as my wife’s flatbread.

We ordered the Sunday paella special. It was delicious --the tapas included octopus salad and falafal; the paella had shrimp, mussels, and chorizo; the dessert was churros with spiced chocolate sauce. The service was very attentive. They refilled water and bread throughout the meal. We really enjoyed the meal.

Anniversary- Came with friends. Ordered special lamb chops which were delicious but 2 baby lamb chops for about $45 was way too much. I’ve never been to a restaurant that served less then 3 chops and usually they are a decent size. This was just silly.

We typically love Boulud Sud so it was a surprise to us that last night's dinner was so disappointing. The inattentive service started us off on the wrong path and the food did not get us back on track.The octopus starter has always been one of my favorites but was served cold & the octopus was chewy & tasteless. The daurade was tasty but lukewarm. If I had to decide whether to recommend the restaurant based on last night's dinner, I would definitely say no. But as we've been fans of Boulud Sud for years, I'm going to believe this was simply an off night and try again.

An attractive, comfortable space with friendly, efficient service
and very good food that is not the usual lunch or brunch fare
(although that is available).

Ideal for those attending Lincoln Center events. The servers
are aware of curtain times and space your courses to insure
a non-rushed meal while getting you out on time.

When we sat down for our 7:30 reservation our server asked if we had a time constraint and we said we had to be finished by 9 for a event. When by 8:40 our MAIN COURSE had not arrived we spoke to someone on the floor. THE MAIN COURSE DID NOT ARRIVE TO 8;45!!!!! While this has been a favorite in the past we will not be back. Glen Wood

Food is a bit expensive but absolutely worth it. Try whatever strikes you. Seemingly unusual combinations wil be great. Old standbys - great. Cocktails - fabulous. Service is attentive but not intrusive. I go there on purpose if I’m entertaining a visitor and I go there by chance if I’m anywhere near it. So far I’ve only eaten outside because the weather has been so warm. Inside looks lovely and I’ll be in there when it’s cold.

Service was rather awful: took a LONG time to be offered a drink. Then a LONG tome for the sommelier to appear. Then appetizers dropped before wine. Then rushed through appetizers and when mains were dropped (just after appetizers cleared) they were tepid if not cold (sides included), clearly the kitchen fired them too soon and should have refired them but didn’t. Wine was decanted, then removed from table (fine, common) only to reappear back in the bottle when a server came to refill our glasses, which utterly confused us. Never have I ever seen a bottle of wine returned to the bottle from which it was decanted. Glasses were overfilled by servers again and again. But water service stopped for a long stretch, only for someone to pour still into our glasses that had sparkling. Then check dropped before tea was delivered, only to be picked back up by a different server. The overall experience was helter skelter, no one seemed to care. We could never catch a server’s attention when we needed something but were asked again and again if the food was good when we did have what we needed. No one was watching or taking notice. The button on the end of the evening? Trying to leave, the host stand was empty and so no one present to retrieve our checked items. I’ve eaten at Boulder Sud before and had solid meals, but this was just terrible from top to bottom.

Our post Film Festival anniversary dinner was superb. Melt in your mouth, sparkling fresh crudo and Boulud’s delicious fish soup,served graciously by Tahir with two spoons made a perfect first course. Nicely spiced squid ink pasta and grilled to order Greek style lamb chops served as a wonderful second course. Although we were too dated to order desert, Tahir served a surprise of cakes and sorbet, both terrific!
Our favorite near LINCOLN Center Boulud Sud is one of the best restaurants in the city. Looking forward to our next visit.
