Our waiter was pretty unhelpful. When asked a question he gave unsatisfactory responses. For example. when asked what the tasting menu included he said "I dont know...whatever the chef feels like giving you". When asked to describe a dish he said "what do you want to know". It was frustrating and took away from the overall experience.

Food was good, portions were expectantly small.

The sea bass was the thinnest fillet I have ever seen. Further, there was nothing noticeably “Boulud” about the dish. I would have expected an entree of this caliber at a far less rated and less pricey establishment.

Always enjoy the food and ambience (and opportunity for people watching, most of them dressed up and excited pre-theater). We were made wait a little till after the reservation time but food came faster than expected so we made it to the opera just in time.

Food and wine were delicious. We especially enjoyed the braised lamb special. The salad with the different chicories was a thing of beauty. I would have liked more puntarelle in my spaghetti; it was a garnish rather than an ingredient.

First time at Boulud Sud; won’t be the last. Food was excellent, particularly the desserts; service attentive but not intrusive; ambience classy but not stuffy. Would like to have seen a few more half bottles on the wine list (my companion doesn’t indulge). Also, some of the supplemental charges seemed a bit hefty for the $65 prix fixe, reducing the “value for $” rating. All in all, however, a memorable dining experience.

The pre-theatre price-fixe iOS pretty mediocre food. You can order other dishes for an up charge, then it gets mediocre and expensive. We will not go back. Plenty of other choices.

Octopus tender but very ordinary. Fettuccine w/ white truffle was mostly a solid, albeit tender, clump. Flavour wise a good base for the truffle but the the shavings added very little flavour, much to my surprise. The Boulud Sud gin cocktail and the grapefruit givre by far the most successful items, the dessert particularly. I would still be willing to give the restaurant another try, but.............

Excellent dining in all respects. If you to to NYC and want to dine in a fine restuarant, this is a good choice. Location across the street from Lincoln Center is prime. Not a quick bite before the performance restaurant, though.

We were there on a busy Sunday noontime during Nutcracker season, so the place was filled with both children and adults. They handled both smoothly and graciously, and the children's menu is designed to appeal to any child I can think of.

We needed a quick but good lunch with a friend visiting from UK. Boulud Sud did the trick with their Express Lunch - 2 courses for $25. It came with delicious pumpkin soup. Unfortunately one guest was allergic to pumpkin seeds; the only alternative offered was a fresh but very mediocre salad - greens and radish with no dressing, which was disappointing. For mains we selected The Tunisian Brick, the pumpkin pasta, both delicious, though the pasta serving was very small - appetizer rather than main course size. I had the mussels, spicy and well-seasoned, in a heaping bowl. Delicious, but very messy to eat - a finger bowl would have been appreciated!

We went to celebrate my daughter's birthday and unfortunately arrived very late due to traffic problems; the maitresse d' was understanding and we were welcomed. All the food was excellent. We began by sharing the babaganoush dip and the m'men flatbread. The latter came without the honey and yogurt accompaniments, but when we asked they did bring these. Both were excellent. For starters we had Octopus a la plancha, which was superb, and the harira soup, quite delicious, filled with lamb and pulses and beautifully flavored. We both had the Arabic lamb flatbread as our main course, a sort if spicy pizza with lamb, aubergine and labneh, very tasty. I had the trio of sorbets for desert - the rose was particularly delicious; my daughter had the mango and cardamam vacherin, very attractively set out on a plate bearing a 'Happy Birthday ' message and a candle. She said the mixture of flavours was excellent and she really enjoyed it. The service was superb. We were there chatting a very long time and were not hurried.

Went for the first time for Thanksgiving dinner, so maybe not a representative evening, but had a delicious meal and an outstanding bottle of wine recommended by the knowledgeable and easygoing sommelier. The shaved halvah on the grapefruit sorbet at dessert was a creative idea gone wrong, but otherwise beautiful food.

In a city where this kind of restaurant--elegant but not crazy expensive, imaginative but not outré--is becoming a rarity, Boulud Sud is one of the few we can count upon. I love the combination of French with Mediterranean, with emphasis on the less travelled parts of Mediterranean cuisine on the southern and eastern shores. And everything is done perfectly. Kudos as well for a wine list that has strong offerings with only digit-prices, also becoming a rarity. We'll be back.
