Food preparation is perfection and delicious
Great place, fabulous service. Fantastic food. Great wine selection.
We love Boulud Sud. We brought friends from out of town and they also loved the food and service. The noise level was somewhat louder than usual
We will certainly come back
Excellent all around; the Prix Fixe menu is a bargain (relatively speaking), the service is outstanding and the food is delicious.
Beautiful Birthday Celebration before the Ballet!
I really enjoyed my evening at this restaurant because we were running late and I called them three times to hold a table and they totally accommodate it yes. The forest mushroom pasta is really good and the great fruit survey presentation is very unique. I usually go to a boulud restaurant before a show at the Lincoln Center but I have never been to Boulud Sud. Now I will go here all the time.
Enjoyed a wonderful pre- theater experience from start to finish.
Exceptional food and great service in a beautiful, peaceful, spacious dining room.
We felt welcomed and well taken-care-of throughout dinner. Dinner was delicious and we made it to our concert with plenty of time to spare. Thank you for a lovely evening!
Lovely prix fix menu and great care to make sure we were in our way to Opera on time. Felt exceedingly well cared for.
My cousins from Florida we’re impressed by the range of flavors.
Great place before a show at the Lincoln Center. They went above and beyond to accommodate me being gluten-free, and Mark our waiter provided excellent service. The food was delicious, especially the agnolotti!
Excellent value, wonderful food, lovely service. The best restaurant on the upper west side by far.
But close to Lincoln Center, so wildly busy when there are performances. Plan accordingly if you want quieter meal, start after the theatre crowd has left.
We arrived at 5 pm on the dot for our pre-opera meal. This was our first visit. I would recommend getting there early, as well. The dining room filled up completely by 6, and was very noisy. The staff managed beautifully, but it was certainly "energetic." Our server was hard to hear. Nonetheless, I would return in a minute for the octopus starter, the broccoli rabe, and the amazing grapefruit sorbet dessert. The last should be on everyone's bucket list.
Excellent service and good value for the money. We will come again soon.
Great spot for Valentine’s Day
We enjoyed a lovely pre ballet Valentine’s Day dinner-thx to all for making a special day a special day with a wonderful meal and attentive service!
Third visit to Boulud Sud and I think I can say that this visit on Valentines Day was underwhelming and have no plans to return in the near future. It was my "go to" when visiting NYC for the Opera but there are plenty of dining options in the Big Apple that I could explore. The regular menu was not available as a (not very special ) menu was offered for Valentines Day. This specialty menu was not available on line so the offerings were a complete surprise ( disappointment) for anyone who was looking forward to the lamb or chicken tangine. The food was very expensive, $30+ for a spinach salad? Seriously! The food is always well prepared, but the portions are small, the reservation staff is a little uppity. Did not feel that Valentines Day was celebrated in any special way ... not even a chocolate with the bill (just a mini sesame cookie). Maybe the dinner would have been better in the dining room after 7 pm but one is limited to the prix fixe menu from 5-7pm if attending the theater. Valentine fail.
Aged steak (2 measly slices) was barely warm when served. Jambon Bellota Cinco Jotas Not served at room temperature but with a slight chill which diminished the subtle taste of this wonderful ham. My wife's truffle risotto, however, was excellent, and at a fair price.
The food was generous and well prepared although vegetable was too salty/inedible.
Service for a restaurant catering to theatre goers was off - twice I reminded server of curtain as I did upon confirmation. I was "pushed" to order vegetable along with Dover sole and had to remind server halfway through main course that it never arrived - no loss overly salty.
The best thing on the menu is grapefruit givre - delicious refreshing creative not at all sweet!
Would I return - yes but hopefully with different server.
Food was delicious! The staff were extremely accommodating and so pleasant. Bartender was great!! Pre Very nice dining experience overall before the ballet!
Celebrated my husband’s 40th birthday at Boulud Sud last Sunday, and in his own words ‘It was an amazing experience!’ We loved the ambience, the food was superb, and the service was just impeccable. Just high praise for this place, we hope to be back again soonest!
My girlfriend and I immensely enjoyed our dining experience at Boulud Sud. The service, food and presentation were exemplary. The Restaurant Week menu was quite interesting and varied. The Grapefruit Givre was exceptional and lived up to its billing as the restaurant's "signature" dessert. I look forward to returning.
Wonderful experience, delicious food and great service
Sunday Brunch is a delight. A lovely range of dishes are offered, and the 3-course Brunch is a very fair $35. Service was also excellent. I did lower the "value" rating one star, because while we asked for a basic white wine, and then we each had a second glass - - we did not ask the price or see the wine list by the glass. When the check came, we were surprised that our 4 glasses of "basic" white wine were $76 and our 2 Brunches were only $70. Is a "basic" wine really $19 a glass???
Next time I will insist on seeing the wine list with prices before we order.
We’ve been here twice on our biyearly visits to the city. The food is always consistently good.
great service, interesting and excellent food. nice atmosphere. oddly enough the grapefruit dessert was the most amazing part of the meal, worth the trip on its own
We tried this neighborhood restaurant for Restaurant Week and were very pleased with the food and service. The rating, however, is not fully five star because of the high noise level. Although I would recommend this to friends, it is with the caveat about the noise. I and my friends are seniors who prefer to be able to talk to each other without shouting to be heard.
Love the food here - service is outstanding, as is every dish.
I’ve eaten at Boulud Sud before. Previously, I had a wonderful time ordering the chef’s tasting menu with paired wines. This past dinner was disappointing. Ordered chicken tagine which was shockingly ordinary. I would have ordered fish, but sadly none of the offerings were local. I would think twice before going again.
Prompt seating, attentive service (we were headed to the Opera afterwards). Our waiter was superb, made a special occasion even more special. Menu was creative and delicious.
Top notch experience across the board!
We are somewhat elderly, and also vegan, so it is hard to find a place that offers good food at rational prices and also has vegan options. Having eaten at Boulud for lunch and found it to be well worth the cost, we invited (also elderly and fussy) relatives during Restaurant Week. We were resigned to not finding anything on the Restaurant Week Prix Fix that we could eat and assumed a salad and a side dish would suffice. Instead our wait person offered an "off the menu" eggplant dish that was excellent and included on the prix fixe. She also pointed out a salad and dessert that could be modified for us. Our guests also chose the prix fixe and they were delighted with both the food and the ambience. at one point a fish in parchment was delivered to one of our guests who had trouble with it and it was returned and cme back "naked" and easier to eat. All in all a wonderful experience that is hard to find in highly rated restaurants.
Like it a lot! great food, service and location! Boulud is a warranty
As always with Boulud Sud, we had delicious and creatively prepared food, impeccable service, and a warm and lovely atmosphere. We can't think of a better restaurant to have a memorable meal or time.
A friend offered to take me out in honor of my birthday before a NY Philharmonic concert. I chose Boulud Sud because it is near Lincoln Center, but also because I knew it to be a home of fine dining. I wasn't disappointed. I felt like a celebrity due to the care & charm of the service afforded my companion & I & the food didn't disappoint either. It was seasonal, beautiful & delicious. I was eager to show my friend a true fine dining experience. She doesn't usually like restaurants & prefers to dine at home. The next day she sent me an email saying that she had a truly delightful evening.
I have wanted to go for awhile and am glad we finally did. We had a lovely dinner at Boulud Sud. It is a charming restaurant with servers that are professional and friendly. The food is unusual and not what you get every day and was a real treat from beginning to end.
It was New York Restaurant Week and the food was very good. Will eat there again
A favorite! Fabulous food and service would recommend any time
