Went for Sunday brunch with friends. Beautiful room. Our meals were good but nothing extraordinary. Service was slow & inattentive, much to my surprise. I would give it another try but it was a bit disappointing.

Everything about the experience was made enjoyable by the precision and care taken by all parties. The food was excellent, the service attentive without being annoying, and the timing was perfect; we were able to get to our concert in time.

Boulud is perfect for pre-Lincoln Center dining. Their $65 pre-fixe is a good value, offers a good selection and is excellent as is the service which enables you to get to your performances with time to spare. A favorite!

Perfect dinner spot before a Lincoln Center performance. The staff worked seamlessly to provide a 3 course price fix, never seemed rushed yet got us out in good time. Highly recommended

Noise was probably quiet because it was a late weekday lunch and the restaurant wasn't that busy. The Lamb Burger was very good but the waiter should have brought some ketchup and mustard. There were a number of other items that I would have ordered so I'll put it on my list for a return visit.

I did not eat - I only drank tea. My husband and aunt shared a fish dish that they both said was delicious. The wait people were extremely attentive. The restaurant was not crowded - it was lunch and so it was quiet and we could hear each other talk. I have been to this restaurant twice now - I would go back again.

I wish I had asked the name of our charming French waiter. He was superlative, from helping to choose wines to discussing the menu in depth. the Fluke crude and octopus were both outstanding.

We cane here to celebrate my dad’s 90th birthday & had a very enjoyable evening. One person in our party has dietary restrictions & the staff could not have been nicer. They were all very patient & extremely accommodating. The food was delicious with generous portions. A great place to go for a special occasion.

Boulud Sud is our usual "go to" for pre Met Opera dinner.
Can't beat the 3 course price fix - wonderful variety and portions are perfect size.
What was wonderful despite it being a Saturday evening - promptly seated at 6pm for a 6:15 reservation and never felt rushed - courses spaced perfectly and we were so comfortable that if I had not looked at my watch at 7:30 - we could have sat all evening - that's how comfortable the restaurant is!

Three of us recently dined at Boulud Sud for the first time. Everything was outstanding! Our meals were beautifully prepared, delicious beyond expectations and served with aplomb. The very knowledgeable Sommelier's wine recommendations were perfectly paired with our food. We will return again very soon and tell friends. Boulud Sud is definitely a winner!

Truly remarkable Mediterranean offshoot of the Daniel Boulud family of restaurants. Impeccable attention to service and detail with some of the best seafood dishes I have ever tasted (how you manage such a crispy skin with succulent flesh is amazing to me). Pre fixe theatre menu was epic. Looking forward to returning to try some of the other dishes.

We brought some friends from Sweden to dinner because we wanted to give them delicious and slightly unusual food and the choice of the great wine list and we were thrilled. Two wonderful bottles of burgundy (different years for comparison) delicious fish, duck and chicken tagine were all enjoyed greatly and the staff were incredibly helpful when we were informed that one of the party was allergic to nuts!

Noted decline in cuisine quality at late night seatings. Support staff make this place run. Hopefully, they are rewarded with a share of gratuities. In general, the “Boulud” Empire on the Upper West Side is slipping, quite clearly. The dinner menu rarely changes. Service can be pretentious and condescending. Perhaps, we have dined here too often and are in need of a long break.

The best dining spot if you are going to attend any event at Lincoln Center. We look forward to dining there before opera, and wouldn't think of reserving at any other restaurant in the area.
