CAFÉ BOULUD features a French-American menu inspired by Chef Daniel Boulud's four culinary muses: la tradition, classic French cuisine; la saison, seasonal delicacies; le potager, the vegetable garden; and le voyage, the flavors of world cuisines.

In addition to dinner seven nights, we feature a $39 two-course prix-fixe lunch six days a week, and a $42 two-course prix-fixe brunch on Sundays. The restaurant is both a neighborhood gem and a destination for food lovers in search of casually elegant dining. Two private dining rooms seating 20 guests each are available for your private entertaining needs, and may be combined to accommodate 40.

The restaurant's adjacent BAR PLEIADES serves inventive cocktails and a luxurious bar menu from 3 pm onward.

My husband and I go to Cafe' Boulud on special occasions and are never disappointed. The food is very tasty and the service impeccable. My striped bass was superb. The best way to celebrate my birthday!

We dine with friends and are not hurried. Tremendous
choices. We know to expect a high standard with seasonal
ingredients. Desserts are unmissable.

It is probably the worst French cuisine I've ever had...very salty and extremely hard to digest. I had a stomachache after I had my salad. The menu says Macadamia in the salad, but you have to use microscope to see it, nor could you taste it. And the salad is made from lettuce with roots. How could they claim such a high price for such poor quality food! I was extremely dissapointed. It is unbelievable!

Cafe boulud is one of my favorite restaurants but don't go there on valentines day. They over booked the number of people they could fit and the usual calm, high service setting was rushed and cramped. There was more than a 30 minute wait for our table with no where to wait ( even the adjacent bar was packed) and despite all the staff still being quite accommodating, they really couldn't give the type of service that they are used to due to the number of diners and the cramped room. Definitely not worth the very high priced dinner this night.

A great experience with the unique french flavour of charm, elegance and magnificent taste.
