I go here because, knowing that everything will be perfect, I don't have to think about anything; I can just enjoy. That's luxury and a rarity.

One of our favorites disappointed this time. Food and service were below BS high standards. Perhaps a one-off - we hope.

I have always enjoyed this top quality restaurant
We went in For a late dinner
Food as always was excellent
On entry we were asked whether we wanted a drink and I said a “ bottle” of wine.
Server said he would send wine Stewart but none arrived , finally I complained and they took my order for two bottles
Excellent and well priced Champagne but the 2nd bottle, an aged Crozes-Hermitage was macerated and should not have been served
The wine steward actually did serve it and mentioned it’s age but not that it was gone so we assumed it to be ok ( she had tasted it before pouring)
Our group discussed the bottle after we left and all agreed that it was “ bad”

This is a fine restaurant - at lunch the menu is not extensive, but has attractive choices, and those that my wife and I had were excellent - tender and delicious octopus, perfectly grilled dourade, an outstanding cold asparagus soup, wonderful desert. Our waiter was exceptionally helpful. The wine list is very much on the expensive side, but there are interesting wines by the glass that are reasonable.
We had been to Boulud Sud for dinner in the past, and that was also a satisfying experience.

My plate lacked a generous portion of Hummus as the base of the plate . I have had this plate before where it was better prepared.

Featured dessert was exceptional

The ambience is suffering from a tired room and furniture. Needs an upgrade

Plenty of staff but poorly managed. Servers hovering, no smooth sense of purpose. Confused cocktail orders. Way too much refilling of water. Poor language skills with a few servers. Branzino was excellent but $110 is inexcusable overcharge by 30%

We asked if Moroccan chicken can be prepared just w/ dark meat. The waiter confirms w/ kitchen and said they will prepare it only w/ dark meat. When the food came out it was a ridiculously small portioned dish that they just omitted white meat and didn’t substitute it with dark meat.
They (waiter and manager) recognized the mistake from the kitchen and the manager offered me an option of just eating this small portioned meal and they won’t charge us for it which I said ok.
When the bill came out, they just took out $8 out of $35 for our chicken dish. I couldn’t believe how cheap they were and felt kind of deceived.
They tried to cover it by giving us a mediocre dessert that we didn’t need.
Pasta we ordered was very salty and when they remade it, it just looked like they poured water on it or something and tasted so bad.
Chilled asparagus soup was good!
Overall, bad experience and I won’t be coming back for sure.

Terrific, as always. Our favorite restaurant on the Upper West Side. The food is inventive, the service is excellent, the tables are not too close together and there is no music playing! It is expensive but worth it particularly for an occasion or a business dinner.

A great choice for pre-theater. Only the prix-fixe menu is offered, and Boulud Sud is impeccable about making sure you have time to get to your performance.
The cuisine was healthy, well-prepared, not too much to eat (so we stayed awake). There's an excellent selection of wines by the glass.
And our busboy sported a knockout pair of eyeglasses!

Server was very nice and friendly, but it took three requests to get a simple glass of ice. The side dish of broccoli rabe took two requests and arrived well after the pasta was already eaten. That it was removed from the bill did little to enhance the meal. The request for cream with the coffee was totally ignored and the coffees were finished before any desserts arrived. Nice try, but no cigar.

It was our daughter's second wedding anniversary. To say that the food was outstanding with some unusual combinations of tastes would be an understatement. Jonathan, the manager, made my daughter feel like royalty. A downside: each of us gained a few pounds since we were treated to many extra desserts. Also, our severe gluten allergy situation did not cause any reduction in excellence.

The preparations were very good, except dessert, which was mediocre at best. It took a bit of attention to keep the wait staff focused on us, and we were delivered the wrong checked bag at the end of the meal. All in all, a bit of a disappointment for a member of Daniel's group.

We've twice been to Boulud Sud, and meals always surpass our already high expectations. The taramasalata can't be missed, and I highly recommend the restaurant's signature dessert, the grapefruit givre. Service was wonderful, and we especially enjoyed a swoonworthy 2005 Chablis, though the cocktails always give the excellent wine program a run for its money. Have both! :)

Greeted and seated right on time. Service was attentive and professional with one hiccup in the middle when some of the staff seemed to think we were finished with our meal before our entrees were served. Food was outstanding. Salads, starters, entrees all first rate, creative, full of flavor. Pricey, but worth it.
