    The food was delicious as I have been to this restaurant a few times before. My date and I switched tables and the server brought some food that we did not order. The waiter claimed that this happened because we switched tables. I was also charged for a glass of wine and food item that I did not order. I thought perhaps this happened either because the waiter had to cover too many tables or was new to the position as a waiter.

    I'm torn because I've frequently enjoyed other outposts of this restaurant. But it was a pretty uneven experience; while the space had some charm, it was cacophonous... our waiter was genial and professional, but didn't seem to have much familiarity with the wine list, and first called the soup of the day a meat (? and when we thought he might have meant gazpacho, he nodded, and it ended up being vichyssoise. 🤣) The food was overall quite good, but the prices are VERY expensive for what amounts to French Bistro food. (I mean, they're a hair cheaper than Balthazar, $21 for French Onion Soup vs. $22 haha, but come on, I feel the same about that place!) The wait staff was lovely and pretty attentive, and the wine list is good (though a few more options under $100 would be nice.) It just seems super "jacked-up-midtown-NY" without any extra edge or polish. I guess I would recommend, if it was the kind of place/experience someone wanted, but with caveats. For me, I prefer a little more innovation and care for my dough.

    RUSHED RUSHED RUSHED. For the prices, no one should be rushed. Dinner was served IMMEDIATELY after appetizers, the King cut prime rib was not cut or cooked as a $100 piece of meat should be. The $6 small cup of coffee shouldn’t be weak and not hot enough. There are too many fine eateries in NYC to choose from that won’t leave you wondering why you paid so much for a dinner with so many issues.

    Inconsistent is the word. Promptly seated and our orders were promptly taken. We both ordered from the Pre-Theater Menu (a great value), appetizers were both served quickly and both (mussels and salad) met expectations. The entrees is where things started falling off, my steak was great, well seasoned and the temperature was perfect. My wife ordered her salmon without the sauce, when it arrived with the sauce it was taken back and re-fired, however the kitchen forgot to add any seasoning. Then our server disappeared, preferring to spend his time with a large table. We had to wait for our dessert order to be taken and he did not ask about coffee until our dessert was served, causing a rushed experience. However we would try this restaurant again.

    The place, the pre-fixe, the presentation were all fabulous. The only reason to give a 4 for good was the inconsistency of the mussels—some were VERY small, others medium or large….what’s up with that?

    My lunch was wonderful. The area in which I was sitting had a loud man next to us. When we asked the waiter to repeat himself because all we could hear was the man next to us he puffed up. He also wouldn’t not repeat what he asked us. Luckily the loud man left 1/2 thought our meal.

    My 3rd time bringing guests and this experience was horrible service. The building is always beautiful and I won’t complain about the food but the service was embarrassing. Our waiter NEVER checked on us once after a food expedited brought our food. Our drinks came later. I asked for ground pepper on my salad but it never came. I asked for sugar for my cappacchino and was told they don’t have any. I found our waiter and asked again and it was slammed down on the table Too bad. It’s a beautiful space

    Only criticism i have is that they will not allow you to wait at the bar having some drinks in case you arrive 10 15 min before your reservation on lunchtime. Hence you have to wait outside looking at all those empty bar stools wondering!!

    Read many great reviews and choose the restaurant for a birthday dinner. However, despite many great reviews, I was not very impressed. The outdoor area is the inside walkway between building and has no atmosphere, the inside is a bit better but does not have the authentic feel to it as other French inspires places in the city. Very big, felt impersonal, and not the best service. All in all would not recommend or go back. Food was good!

    Nice place and lovely staff but for me, way too crowded and busy for a restaurant that is so pricey.. it didn’t feel “special” to me, for the prices I’d prefer a quieter more intimate setting. Noise levels were high and the sheer busy-ness of it was overwhelming. The food was lovely although we only had a main course (a pasta plate and a salmon main course) with no wine and bill before tip was $96. Not value for money, but a nice place and faultless staff.

    I ordered escargot that never came. There were exposed nails under my booth that damaged the pair of pants I was wearing (didn’t receive any discount from my bill to cover the damages to my pants). The food was not up to par with the petite boucherie location. Not a pleasant experience.

    Took two hours for a meal that should have taken tops 1 to 1 1/2 hours. It was crazy. Took over an hour to get our food then almost another hour to get our dessert. Disappointing. Especially since they saw we had a little one with us.

    We went Saturday before going to a matinee to see The Music Man. Service was excellent with a good pace. The menu was a true Parisian bistro menu. We had the salad frisée with Brussels sprouts and an egg; and salad Nicoise. Ariana was our friendly, charmer server. We will definitely be going back to La Grande Boucherie.

    Ate at La Grande Boucherie on Father’s Day for brunch. Sat “outside” which isn’t exactly outside, but there are very high ceilings and the area is open on either end of a long corridor. It was actually very pleasant. Inside looked very pretty in an old French bistro kind of way. Our sever was very nice as we wanted to wait for one in our group and he didn’t push us along at all. We ordered drinks and a tray of pastries while we waited and it was very pleasant to sit there in the atrium. Our late guest finally arrived and we ordered and food was delivered in a timely manner. Food was served hot and it was pretty good. Eggs Benedict seemed smallish for the price. Was nice because we could have a nice leisurely brunch, in a pretty atmosphere, with good service and they were kind to let us wait on our guest (they had a few open tables so that probably helped our cause). Pricey but it’s NYC, so as expected. Overall we were happy with our experience and we will be back again.

    I have lived and study in France for over a decade and I know the country’s cuisine pretty well. There are dishes that shouldn’t be “modernised” like Coquille Saint Jacques, because the traditional recipe is what has kept the dish relevant. While their interpretation is delicious and quality-wise good, it’s not what it should be. No French national will be happy with it. Or the Paris-Brest. Otherwise, is a nice joint, great ambiance and while on the expensive side, the food is good. Great wine selection and Absinthe.

    Le Grande Boucherie is by far the Boucherie you want to visit in NYC. Starting by the ambiance, you are definitely transported to chik Paris, but with an outstanding service experience. It was one of our anniversary dinners, and it did not disappoint. It was incredible how every member of the staff seemed to be aware of our celebration, congratulated us along the way, and added elegant touches. Such as a top of the line happy anniversary dessert (outstanding moist rum cake in layman terms), and a take home elegant Boucherie book. If there, I would also not skip the dry aged, truffle infused steak, highlight! Thanks Amy for the experience.
