Wanted to have a leisurely Sunday lunch on a cold, wet day in a quiet corner of the Village that evoked all the great dining experiences of Paris and NYC... was rushed instead by waitstaff who weren't expecting us (though we had a confirmed reservation) and wanted only to complete the transaction. The food was good, though we ate a couple of days earlier at another independently owned French bistro and spent most of our meal pining for the meal we had at that establishment and wishing we had booked a return there instead. Last gripe... nothing worse than ordering a bottled beer and then discovering on first sip that it is at room temperature-- can it be that hard to grab a cold one from the refrigerator? It's all about the details and this restaurant definitely has some room for improvement.

Great spot, in a great neighborhood, on an amazing corner.

The food was spot on, and delicious. The service was a bit slow, but maybe they were understaffed? Anyways that I rated “good.” I can’t honestly say it was more than that.

Would 1000% come back.

As French people, it was a true disappointment.
I ordered a Séguin Salad which is supposed to be a tiny bit of salad coming with bread toasts of roasted goat cheese. There were literally 2 ridiculously small pieces of bread which weren't even covered with the cheese, on a full plate of green salad. For 20 dollars...
The wine wasn't up to our standards, and we never got to see the bottles since we ordered glasses: we should have been shown the bottles we were served from, and also, have had the opportunity to taste a few drops before making our choice: this is the regular way to serve French wine, especially when the glass is also 20 dollars.
My husband's meat was too cooked (duck breast / magret de canard) is supposed to be medium rare, and the sides were very poor, tiny quantity (42 dollars for his main, crazy).
Let's say it's clearly overrated: crazy expensive for a very poor experience.

Unfortunately we did not have a great experience, the most shocking dish was the Salade de chèvre chaud, 2 mini pieces of sliced baguette not even 1 inch high, with a teaspoon of goats cheese on it on a plate of plain salad, for $19!
The onion soup was not too bad.
The Escargots were in a watery sauce.
The Moules frites, were generous but totally tasteless, the mussels were very big which made the tastelessness even more strange, there was no real bouillon or sauce.
The sparkling wine wasn’t very good which it should have been at $79 and the cocktails at $21 were nothing special.
Thé crème brûlée was super hot on top and super cold underneath… this is not how it is supposed to be.
But in the end I think it was the best dish.
I would really not have minded paying so much, for a wonderful meal but it was so disappointing!
The service was good, they were ok about me sending back the goats cheese salad and as it was 31st Dec at midnight they gave us a free glass of sparkling wine! There’s a great outdoor dining area.
So good people but disappointing and overpriced food

What a wonderful Christmas Dinner. We were in nyc visiting my daughter for Christmas and luckily this once open. My family aid 4 really enjoyed our meals. I had the cod with lobster topping. It was outrageously delicious. and while people will often say there are very small portions when eating French food I found the servings were very generous.

The food was so disappointing- the main entree of eggs Benedict were so over cooked- both the eggs and the toast. We were offered an alternative and ordered the berries and waffles- the waffle was severely undercooked and the berries were drenched in syrup.
My friend and I also ordered margaritas and it was a syrupy mix and the glasses were barely filled with the cocktail. Truly disappointing for a Christmas brunch that was for my family who was in from out of town and excited to dine here.

The ambiance was very welcoming and the noise level was bearable.
The food was very decent. The escargots were great. The menu was just a bit limited but good overall.
Will definitely go back.

I had the salmon for lunch which was a bit disappointing. There was nothing wrong with the fish, just bland. My friend has the fresh tuna, which looked much more appetizer. The interior is lovely, location on a great Greenwich Village street. It was thankfully quiet unlike most NYC restaurants.

Came for my birthday with my boyfriend and had such a lovely experience! This was our second time at Petite Boucherie and both visits were perfect. The waiters are always so considerate and the food was delicious. Love the atmosphere both inside and outside, but was nicer to sit inside this time since it was cold out. Felt very intimate and warm (except for when the door would open), especially with the holiday decorations.

For a place that is usually quite out of my budget, I will happily return to splurge whenever I get the chance. It's a great feeling when you get to go somewhere expensive and not feel any guilt at all because of the experience and value.

Gianna, the host and Eva were warm, friendly, accommodating and so welcoming. The servers were attentive and helpful. We were there for a surprise visit and they gladly helped make it special. The food was equally delicious. The charcuterie board - sublime. The salad nicoise - delish. Charming, intimate ambiance. Just a lovely Sunday lunch.

Petite Boucherie feels and looks like a perfect French bistro. The menu also fits the bill. The only flaw is the food is just middle of the road. Not unacceptable but not top of the game. The frisée salad uses bacon instead of crispy lardon, the onion soup had great cheese but the flavor of the broth was uninspired and the steak tartare had no excitement to its flavor. Overall a pleasant experience but the food was not the highlight.
