I had a really nice work lunch there on a weekday a few weeks ago, and thought I'd take my mother and a friend there for Sunday lunch before a matinee at the Met. It was kind of a disaster, frankly - I won't go back. They didn't have a table for us at our reservation time. There didn't seem to be a clear server assigned to our table, and service was spotty (they brought the wrong side for me, and never checked in to make sure everything was OK - it must have been 10 minutes before I could catch a server's eye to ask for the error to be corrected). And maybe worst of all we were seated near the open kitchen where a cook was just BELLOWING the orders - it was really depressing. The food is delicious, it's a great location and a pretty place, but - no....
We were greeted right away and seated although we were early for the reservation. The service was aware that we had a performance to attend. All staff were attentive and questions about the menu were answered with detail. We ordered appys and brunch with all selections being outstanding. Of concern was a long wait time before the main course was served. This caused us to request coffee and the check simultaneously. We did not order desert due to time constraints.
This was the best dining experience I've had in recent memory. At multiple points we were asked whether we had a show to attend (we did), and we were treated accordingly. The food was astounding (the sea bass was perfect, and the octopus appetizer was what dreams are made of), and the sommelier knew the wines backwards and forwards; I now know that I have a taste for Canary Island white wines. The mid-century modern atmosphere was like stepping into the best version of the past, the menu was positively decadent, and we left feeling very satisfied. I can't wait to have an excuse to return; Boulud Sud exceeded all of my expectations, and I will be singing its praises to everyone I meet. Thank you for an excellent evening!
Excellent food and service. We have eaten at Boulud Sud several times, anything you pick from the Mediterranean-themed menu is bound to be outstanding.
The sommelier was outstanding! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.
I come to NYC about 3 times a year and ALWAYS come to Boulud Sud. Whether I bring 10 friends or come alone, the service is always EXCELLENT. So friendly and charming. Prefer the full menu to the prix fixe menu but other than that, a wonderful meal, as always.
Delicious and impeccable as always! The mezze and the salmon were fantastic!
The restaurant is very conveniently located to the Lincoln center. The staff is very accommodating if you need to get to a show or performance, But the food was mediocre . Disappointing for sure. Sunday brunch menu was offered. The eggs Benedict which I have often when I dine out was just okay. The muffins were too toasted and the bacon, too crisp.
We went for brunch before a performance. The service was extraordinary, the food excellent and interesting. Highly recommend it.
The Grapefruit Givré with sesame halva, rose loukoum, and grapefruit sorbet has to be the best dessert ever!
Boulud Sud is worth it for its great service and ambiance. Although the food was good, it was not exceptional especially given the price and portion size. One can get good quality Mediterranean food made simply that has more flavor and at a slightly lower price.
Fantastic location. Great service and really interesting food.
Pre-opera dinner and dinner made the evening special. Lovely stylish atmosphere with attentive service and an interesting Middle Eastern menu. Octopus to start was excellent followed by the tagine.. delicious. Nice glass of champagne to kick off the celebrations.
It’s not cheap but worth it.
Overall made the evening special
Went on a Friday night. It was a bit crowded and noisy but the food and service made up for any minor inconvenience. A price fixed menu - fabulous apps (order the Lagostinos if they have it); a good range of main course options. Everyone loved the dishes they ordered.
Very nice place. Good food, service and setting! What could be better
Has gone downhill in last few years. Extremely disappointing food and service.. would not return.
Well, we arrived late for our reservation and therefore had only an hour for the prix fixe meal before needing to leave in time for our show at Lincoln Center just across the street. We asked the host at the reservation desk if we had time for the meal or if we should get forgo the reservation. He assured us that we had plenty of time and it was no problem. That was not the case. We told our waiter when we were seated at 6:10 that we needed to leave by 7:10. Our first course came right away, but the main course did not arrive until 7. We wolfed the food down and could not stay for the dessert. They said we could come back after the show for dessert but at 11 pm we were not interested in dessert. So, shame on us for bring late and trying to rush through a delicious and expensive meal, but shame on them for failing to be honest and promising a meal that they could not deliver. The food, as always, was fabulous as was the presentation and the sophisticated atmosphere. I will eat here again but not unless I have at least 90 minutes for the meal.
Staff could not have been nicer in accommodating our many requests!
The food at Boulud Sud is excellent. The wine list is outstanding filled with small unusual gems along with the stars you'd expect from a fine French establishment. It's not easy to combine the unusual with the grand and compliments are due.
All of my friends and I love Boulud Sud! I have been there for brunch and dinner, and the food is consistently great. The food, service and ambience are all wonderful, there's realy nothing not to like about it!
The food is fabulous as always. Some dishes ( salads) are too big, some are too small ( appetizers)
Entrees are always just right. The service was not very attentive , unusual for Boulud Sud.
Here’s my perception of Boulud Sud:
All of these, including attention paid to acoustics, are qualities I appreciate.
And, of course, well prepared food which I mention last because without the other qualities the food, no matter how good, wouldn’t bring me back.
The food is good and can sometimes be great. The service is spotty - it is either terrific or they fall down on even the basics (like bringing serving spoons with shared appetizers).
Food was very good. Prices were logical. Service was bad.
I always feel Boulud Sud offers lovely creative variations. The pumpkin soup had so many pretty and tasty additional items. The flavor of the Steak and Eggs (at Brunch) was so interestingly Moroccan. The red wine by the glass was outstanding (I guess it should be at $18). Service was friendly and confident. We will be back again.
Nice high end dining near Lincoln Center. There actually is a decent bar with an additional more casual dining area next to it. This is a very good go out with your wife type of place. The service is solid.
Boulud Sud was very good the service was pleasant, the food was outstanding, very different and well cooked. The environment was very welcoming and pleasant. The noise level about right, not too loud, not too quiet.
Enjoyed every minute...
Festive, elegant and spacious with a delicious, sophisticated and healthy menu
good service excellent food great before a night at Lincoln center
I wish the menu was "refreshed" and offered some other selections.
Very lovely decor, great ambiance, delicious food but very expensive
We had dinner at Boulud Sud in NYC before our Lincoln Center. The staff was extremely friendly, professional and courteous and seated us at our table, even though we were a bit early. Service was excellent and food was outstanding. We live in Miami and can't wait to visit the Miami restaurant. Kathy Feldman
Oh my oh my one of the best meals I have had. From start to finish the service was top notch. The Sea Bass and the chicken fabulous. Be sure you save room for their creative deserts.
A truly wonderful meal with excellent ambience. A memorable meal with fabulous service. Go!
It is a nice Mediterranean restaurant. Not overly special, but certainly worth considering for a regular outing in that neighborhood. Interesting food, but not high cuisine.
I think it is trading on the Boulud name recognition, but it is not close to what Boulud presented in his earlier incarnations.
always a great meal beautiful setting great wine
Boulud Sud is a wonderful NYC dining destination and superb choice pre-Lincoln Center performance. Prix fixe menu from 5-7 pm offers plenty of tasty options. Superb wine list. Exceptional service. Also an excellent choice for a special celebration. This restaurant goes on the "hands down-marvelous" list.
Always good. No piped music, excellent food and great service.
The food was fine, but 4 chunks of octopus for $30.?
The food was delicious and the restaurant calm and relaxing. Our server was helpful and charming. He made our dinner extra special
