We enjoyed the Paella special for table. The wait staff are terrific! Bar drinks a bit overpriced. The ambiance is soothing and modern. All and a perfect night.

Pre-theater menu was delicious as always. Highlights were the wagyu beef--worth the supplement--and the desserts. The wine sommelier was great. Service was a bit rougher than previous visits; the place was packed, perhaps unexpectedly. A great choice near Lincoln center.

Pre-theatre menu was excellent. Fun cocktails. Nice atmosphere. What we ordered arrived perfectly prepared. The staff is the most important detail of an excellent pre-theatre meal. We were not disappointed by this team of professionals. We never felt pressured or rushed at any time during our meal. Friendly and
accommodating. Just steps from Lincoln Center.

A nice blend of white-tablecloth service and semi-casual vibe. Menu choices are a bit limited, but all on point. Good wine list as well.

The food is superb, and the service—after an unfortunate beginner my due to the crush of pretheater—provided skilled and professional. Try the smoked trout if it’s a special. The fluke crisp was also delicious. All in all, a great meal!

The food was fresh, creative, and delicious. We had the sea bass and chicken tagine for our main courses and the flavors were interesting and well-developed. The octopus and beet appetizers were the best part of the meal. The octopus a la plancha was slightly charred, but not overcooked; it was tender and flavorful. The beet dish was great with toasted quinoa and avocado labneh and a rich, yogurt-based spread on the bottom. Our waiter and his team provided excellent service. The sommelier left a lot to be desired. Though she ultimately steered us well in terms of wine selections, she didn't seem to know the menu (she described the wonderful and complex beet dish as chopped beets tossed with a dressing and served with crackers) and had no interest in helping us coordinate our wine selections with our food, instead pushing us to order wine before we'd decided on our food.

Boulud Sud is reliably delightful. Service runs like a clock. Food is delicious. The noise level can get pretty "energetic", but the experience is still warmly festive.

The inner restaurant is crowded and the lounge area is adjacent to that and the bar. It is really a small space that they have gone out of their way to make appear larger and fit in as many tables as possible. Even though the rule is- in the dining room from 5-7 one can only order prix fixe- the service was so slow (although the wait staff was constantly rushing everywhere) that we almost missed our curtain. The food quality varied- the fillet of sole was excellent- lamb and short ribs (small portion)okay. Shrimp appetizer, and octopus nothing special. The onion soup a bit thick and gloppy. For the price, there are much better options in the area.

This was my first time at Boloud Sud, after having gone to other Boloud restaurants many times.

I had potato soup (delicious), the daurade (which was beautifully prepared, but a bit too strong of a taste for me), Patatas Bravas (very good, but not very crispy), and a fabulous dessert that involved mangos and cardamom.

It's a lovely restaurant, and I will go back.

Boulud Sud is fortunate in its location. It is a mystery why so few restaurants are in this neighborhood given its proximity to Lincoln Center. To make a curtain there, the pre-fixe only offering at Boulud Sud is okay but nothing memorable. In fact, I had to check our receipt to remember what I ate. We won't return for a while.

everything was lovely except the attempt by some wait staff to rush us along even though we had made clear to our main server that we did not have to meet a performance deadline. It seemed our main server was great, but others seemed intent on moving us along, even when it had to be apparent we were not finished with a course. Overall, however, food was spectacular and our main server was excellent.

A wonderful dinner, as always. Because of an early curtain, we were there when only the $65 prix-fixed menu was offered. The person who called to confirm the reservation was almost apologetic about it, but it was not a problem! A reasonable price for 3 courses with various options to choose from. Appetizer and main course were delicious, and we finished with a wonderful vacherin with mango that had us purring with delight!

We were in NYC for my son's voice coaching and an opera night. I decided to go to Boulud Sud. It was a great idea. everything was great and the staff was incredibly efficient. The sommelier guided us with a great Italian white wine which paired perfectly with our meals.
It was a Magnifique experience.
We will be back.

Dinner was amazing. The garlic pepper shrimp was yummy and octopus plancha was charred perfectly and the accompanying sauce took it to new heights! The chicken tagine was moist and flavorful and the Louisiana crawfish with homemade pappardelle with pea and mint sauce tasted like Louisiana in springtime. And the desserts knocked our socks off! The deconstructed rhubarb tart was tangy and sweet and crunchy and foamy and the mango gelato was so tropical it took you back to the islands! With perfect service and great drinks to round off the meal this was an experience to remember.

Disappointing. To be fair we did not realize brunch menu is so different from regular menu. One of us ordered scrambled eggs w salmon. True our choice but t was very pedestrian. As far as atmosphere - I sm afraid there was none.Minimalistic to the point of dull The service was the best part. Will not return.
