Awesome prix-fixe lunch! Comfortable and pretty dining room, and sidewalk seating. Very helpful and efficient staff. Yummy duck confit.
Delightful lunch experience
I was disappointed this time that you don't offer more options. Also, please eliminate Duck Breast and give us real duck!

This was our second brunch dining experience and it was absolutely wonderful both times. The food is beyond expectation and the service is flawless. It is one of the best brunch meals we’ve ever had.
Very solid food, but the service was clumsy, with both the first and second courses having dishes placed at the wrong spot at the table. Also, our wait staff grasp of the menu seamed limited, which is surprising given how few items are on the menu.
This is perhaps my favorite restaurant in New York. I took my best friend as a surprise on a sad day. The food as always, was exceptional and great value. However, the service was not particularly attentive.
It took forever to get someone's attention to ask for a coffee refresh and we weren't offered another one, though we did linger over our delicious and beautifully plated meal. The staff to guest ratio was more than ample. We were not dressed up for 10 am on a Saturday but it did feel a bit as though we were judged on appearance and not accorded the same level of service as other diners.
I dined here many times, but the food consistently keeps getting sub par
Two things. Marinated shrimp appetizer: The shrimp was not tender. It was chewy bordering on tough. Shrimp should be tender-crisp, and that is not hard to achieve. Second item: We both had wine by the glass. When one of us ordered a second glass the server inquired if we wanted a clean glass. It is a question that should never be asked in a restaurant of your caliber.
I had a lot of very good experience previously but not this time , service is not good at all.
Café Boulud is a consistent "ten"! Really good food, professional service. The madelines at the end of the meal are an added treat.
Everything was great. My only minor complaint was that service was a bit slow and uneven. It was a busy night...
Glorious. Wonderful. Everything here is perfect. It may just be the finest restaurant in New York.
Delicious special food
Food ambience all was terrific. The touch at the end with lemon Madeleines was over the top.
Price fixe lunch was delicious and absolutely value for money! Service was great!
We love this restaurant in every season, but the weekend specials are truly special. Last summer it was the Riviera and this summer it is the Basque region. On Friday and Saturday evenings there was a special menu which was a great value. We came at the beginning of the summer and it was excellent we came again at the end of the summer and it was even better. It’s hard to improve on perfection, but that’s what Café Boulud has done.
Another daniel Boulud restaurant that we love. The food is absolutely wonderful. Such a cozy place and a great menu.
The food and wine were wonderful as always at a Boulud restaurant but service was unfortunately rushed and impatient and forgetful all at once. Possibly the staff was thrown off by a building- wide air conditioning failure in the middle of a sultry evening.
Super meal for our LA friends and fellow foodies.
Two fish choices were perfectly done, presentation lovely.
Lamb was superb, sauced just right.
My husband was in heaven thanks to the Ile Flottant.
Trio of ices was flavorful and fine.
The food was delicious, the staff were very professional and friendly, and we loved our dining experience there!
Truly wonderful and memorable meal and service. Well worth the splurge.
One of our favorites! The food and the service are always superb!
The food was decent, but overpriced. And for the price, we should expect much better service. I was really disappointed, and will not be going back.
Wonderful food and service
Cafe Boulud is a classic restaurant. It is unwaveringly lovely and serves delicious food with a very attentive and professional staff. It is truly a pleasure to be a guest. The Steak Rossini was extraordinary. I want to have it in the winter, too. The detail with which the wait staff attended to us from sensitively timing the wine pouring to putting a plate in front of me while my guests had their first course. Very elegant and detail-oriented. An absolute pleasure! Thank you.
Café Boulud always offers dependably outstanding food in a comfortable and reasonably quiet setting. My first time going for brunch and it was very good with an interesting set of alternatives.
Well-prepared food, with interesting blends of flavors and spices. Gracious, friendly service. Elegant decor.
It was very good. We went for restaurant week and it was above our expectation
We went there for the restaurant week. Unfortunately the menu had changed compared to the online version, and the appetizers weren’t particularly good. The entrees (salmon and pork roast), however, were excellent, as were the complimentary madeleines.
Just a great meal and terrific service, the plus was meeting Daniel Boulud!
We came here to celebrate my 50th birthday. The staff was attentive, the food was absolutely amazing and they surprised me with a candle for my dessert!
The staff handled Restaurent week crowd well
The food and service is consistently reliable
Delicious food with thoughtful individualized service.
I have dined here several times before, and this time did not disappoint! The service, atmosphere, and food were all excellent. The Restaurant Week menu was hard to select from as each option was something that I would like.
One can always count on this Boulud restaurant to offer wonderful service, wonderful cuisine and a wonderful atmosphere!
Wonderful! Especially the petit madeleine was amazingly delicious. Thank you for your hospitality.
