We had a spectacular dinner on Sunday celebrating my husband's birthday. Everything from the moment we arrived and checked our coats to our birthday dessert was superb. The Captain, Marie Caroline, is a professional with a subtle sensitivity and deep knowledge of fine dining and hospitality. Merci beaucoup!
This was our first Michelin Star restaurant and I think it lived up to its reputation. The food was amazing and the ambiance was perfect (not too crowded and the noise level manageable).
Delicious food! Try the chestnut soup!
All , very , very good!!!
elegant atmosphere, fine food, an especially nice place for Sunday brunch.
This has always been our special occasion place and it never disappoints!
Perfect food, fabulous staff, great location, and lovely atmosphere. No detail was missed and they are very willing to accommodate food allergies. What a wonderful place to celebrate my daughter’s 17th birthday while visiting from Seattle. Thank you!
My husband and I tried their brunch! Coffee was really good, both of our appetizers were delicious and main course is cooked well. Excellent attention to detail and service.
Love Chef Bouluds restaurants. They're all the best dining experiences.
Amazing food that is reasonably priced for an Upper East Side French restaurant. Chef Bludorn made every meal memorable and delicious!
Try to focus on customers... they will be happier I think...
It was a bit underwhelming for all the hype. Food not superb as expected. Would not return.
The food is amazing and the staff is really dialed into the patrons needs.
A neighborhood staple, it is very good overall. A bit inconsistent over the entire meal. A very nice lunch.
Food was salty, we returned both entree.
Appetizer were Ok, but nothing special.
Not worth the money
Absolutely wonderful and worth every penny. That being said it really was very reasonable compared to other similar types of restaurants.
Cafe Boulud did everything right for us. The menu is simple and unfussy. The food is well executed, and succeeds at making food I wouldn't ordinarily eat still turn out delicious. The service is attentive but still relaxed, and the atmosphere is chatty but easy to hold a conversation.
I would absolutely go back!
Excellent value for 3 course brunch...our favourite place to go at the weekend. Food is delicious - not too much not too little. Pleasant and friendly service.
A consistent, high quality performer-- food, service and ambiance are all excellent.
Will come back
We are regulars there for lunch and dinner,
However I will never go back for breakfast .
While they were courteous, the service was unspeakably slow and when at table inattentive. As our expectations are that it would be the same level of service that we have always received at lunch or dinner...
Went for restaurant week lunch with family. Salmon and beef were cooked very well and had great appetizer as well. Service was excellent. Overall great experience.
Excellent service. Wonderful food.
Very enjoyable experience.
Café Boulud always delivers... we went on Restaurant Week and received a good value for our money.
We went for restaurant week. The selections on the menu were excellent. The food was delicious, the service was attentive, warm and personable. The mushroom ravioli were excellent, and my husband raved about the beef bourgignon. The deserts were excellent as well, as were the recommended wine. All around 10+ .
It was great!!!!!
It was just a fabulous place to have a meal. The food is spectacular, the service is excellent.No music in the background so one doesn't have to scream across the table.
Yes, Café Boulud pricing is high. I cannot afford to dine there with any real frequency. But I will make it a point to spend my dollars there whenever I have enough and enough of a chance. During my two years living above my means in Manhattan, I have not better restaurant experience. Simply the best.
Food delicious & enjoyed the ambiance. Bathroom very clean.
Plus: Restaurant Week menu choices , chef’s gifts, special wine prices.
Minus: refusal to sit 3 out of 4 until all were present, cold rolls.
some food were great, main course was WAY too salty. waiter tried so hard to get you out of there.
clean out the plate when food is still present, when dessert was served the manager just threw the bill on the table, not even saying"whenever you're ready". they just want to get you out of there ASAP! since we sat down to leaving, it was only an hour. Don't go there if you want a date or talk. but food is still great, but guess they don't taste how salty it is.
The food was so good and delicious 😋😍. I'm so happy
We went for Restaurant Week. Some places are not especially friendly to people who are taking advantage of the week. Cafe Boulud was extraordinary! Gave us lovely little treats throughout the meal, service was lovely and the food was divine. I had the mushroom ravioli and literally made little happy noises! This place is worth the hype!
The food, service and ambience were all wonderful. The value of Restaurant Week can't be topped.
food is not as good as expected and the environment is a bit noisy
Restaurant week menu was good and they bring over some fresh baked madeleines in addition to dessert!
Dabiel's rep but bnothing like he qualitybof hisnrestaurant.
We thoroughly enjoyed brunch here on Saturday. Great menu, brunch cocktails and wonderful service made for an exceptional experience.
