Known for its intriguing “je ne sais quoi,” Le Bilboquet, now in a location three times the size as the original, continues to satiate the Upper East Side one Cajun Chicken at a time. Nearly 29 years after the original location opened its doors, the elite brand - owned by master restaurateur Philippe Delgrange, has since become a global sensation, with outposts already in Dallas, Atlanta, and Sag Harbor and sister restaurants Fleming by Le Bilboquet and Café Bilboquet, and Le Bilboquet Denver on the horizons.

Service was best part- waiter was gracious, attentive to dietary restrictions, went out of his way for a most enjoyable mea. And the Cajun chicken was absolutely divine!

We had a reservation for early afternoon, the restaurant was almost empty and yet the service was horrible. Our waitress was always in a hurry, taking our orders almost on the run. She had absolutely no desire to be there and serve. The food was very good and nicely presented. There are thousands of great food restaurants in Manhattan with much nicer service. Won’t come to this place again. Sorry

Mediocre for the price. Don’t order a cocktail here. Stingy, watery and expensive. Food was good, not great.

Food was decent, but unexciting. The service and restaurant itself were very nice. A good place for expensive business dinner, but not a spot to return to for food.

Expensive but good food and ample portions. Noise level during prime dinner time is unacceptable. Gets better if you have a late meal but earlier on good luck having a conversation!

Food was good. Music was way too loud and we couldn’t enjoy our meal or could not talk to each other. Very 1980’s disco atmosphere. Would not go back

Reservation made for 4 with OpenTable was said it was for 6!
The service was bad. No attention at all from waiters and maitre. We have had to call at least 2 or 3 times to came to our table. Food was ok, except my filet, asked to be medium and came well done. Bad experiente!

Ever chic and fabulous... interesting people watching, seductive atmosphere and consistently very good French bistro fare. Somehow this classic Upper East Side place stays interesting and exuberant always.

A thoroughly enjoying evening at a fun French restaurant that has been around for a long time and continues to deliver. The menu is not overwhelming but good and everything they do is of a good quality. Good, lively restaurant.

Overall it was a great experience. The choice and quality of the food is outstanding as well as the atmosphere. The white asparagus and the profiteroles were perfect! I recommend ordering meat and tuna rare if you don’t want it over cooked.
