The food was perfectly presented with a plethora of agreeable flavors, aromas, and textures. Although I am not a dessert person, the first time I dined at your establishment a number of years ago I ordered the grapefruit dessert and have always ordered it on each return visit; I hope it stays on the menu perpetually.

The food and presentation are superb and ambience is always excellent and though the service is very good, it borders on intrusive. Clearly when people are engaged in conversation, they don’t need to be interrupted repeatedly. Felt a little hustled. And yet, I dine there often, because the good m as led me happy.

Prix fixe menu before an event at Lincoln Center. Food was excellent - had the sirloin: very tender, extremely tasty. Service discreet but very attentive. Got us through three courses in 1hr 10mins, which is all we had time for. Just top notch, as always.

The food is fabulous and the service is great. I was a bit annoyed at noon on the day of the reservation
they called and said it was a prix fixe @ $65. it was too late to book elsewhere. I don't mind the $65
but I can't eat that much food . The place was empty!! I guess peoples are not interested at that price.

We were excited to be having brunch at Boulud Sud. There were lots of interesting dishes on the menu that we wanted to try. We ordered the mezze because I am a big fan of Babaganouj but the smoky eggplant flavor that I love was overwhelmed by hot peppers. The Schwarma and Tagine were both very greasy and the tagine did not have enough flavor. The ketchup served with the fries that accompanied the schwarma was also very spicy and overwhelmed the fries. The linguine was excellent so I know that they can cook. I’ll give them another try because their location is convenient but any more strikes and they will definitely be out!

One of my absolute favorite restaurants in Manhattan. It takes Mediterranean food to a whole new level with subtle seasoning and outstanding texture. Best salmon chef in NYC!

Very good service and food. Flavor was great, but do wish the chickpeas in my lamb dish were a bit softer/ cooked a tad more. Overall, would go back, again it was very good and service was excellent!

Boulud Sud has become one of my favorite fine dining restaurants. Manager Marcellan, Server Harold and Chef Brian are now friends. The special ceviche and trout appetizers were terrific; the scallop, Dover sole and chicken tangine main courses were delicious! I love the ambiance and the acoustics enable conversation without having to strain to hear your dinner companions.

Menu never seems to change. Maitre’d Patrick is always exceptional and a defining force in our returning. Beyond that the food is not exciting. Wait staff is not knowledgeable of wines and pairings.

From the moment we walked in until the moment we left the service was remarkable.

We made a mistake and went to the smaller restaurant that was around the corner. When the host realized that he no only told us the address, but he walked us to the correct restaurant.
We arrived 30 minutes early and the restaurant was packed. I did not see one seat available. We sat at the bar and had a cocktail. Again service, service, service.

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

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.
