Service was slow to get into its groove (long wait for drinks order, menus not dropped for a long time, had to flag down server to place order), but once that was ironed out, the meal (and subsequent service) was delightful. A place for true gastronomes, as the flavor:texture combinations were subtle and sophisticated.

At a high end restaurant the service should be impeccable. We were asked to order 3 times before the cocktail was served, in a brief period of time. They had a difficult time to credit a gift certificate to the bill. The food presentation, taste, quality were all superb. The blemish was in service.

Disappointed 4 of us were seated at a bar table despite a reservation. Expected 4 person table like the ones in the event space part of the restaurant, facing each other. Bar seating for 2 is great but for 4 it is tricky.
The food and service were amazing.

The tasting menu at lunch was perfect--one of the best meals I have ever had. I loved the seasonal treatment of ingredients such as wild mushrooms and truffles, and the wine pairings were just right (porcini flan with Dungeness crab paired with a Puligny Montrachet, mmm). I really enjoyed watching the activity in the kitchen: observing the unhurried creation of such lovely dishes was a delight.

One of the most amazing culinary experiences we’ve ever had. We picked it for our 25th anniversary dinner and couldn’t be more happy with the choice. Between the food and the attentiveness of the staff, we were sorry that we had to leave. The ambiance truly feels like a very large home/kitchen, with your European aunts, uncles and cousins taking every care of you.

We still can’t get over the Porchini Flan course.

Can’t wait to go back.

Hint: The pre-show dinner seating is the bargain of the year.

Bouley at Home is the best restaurant in Manhattan. Don’t bother with Daniel, Eleven Madison, Le Bernadin, Le Coucou, Jean Georges, Del Posto, etc. Bouley at Home is better, at less than half the price!!!

And I am not kidding, when it comes to gourmet dining.

I am huge fan of Bouley and it is my go to place for any celebration. I have been at all the various incarnations of Bouley. During the summer the lunch price was raised a bit and it said that the tip is now included. I paid the bill, did not leave a tip and right before leaving said something about the tip line. I was told that today(Monday 10/29) they stopped the practice. Nothing was said on the menu or check about the change. I was upset that I shortchanged the excellent service. Also, I always look forward to the outstanding bread and many types of bread. this visit had a few pieces of bread and when I asked for the gluten free was told it was no problem but when I got the bread it had been toasted as it was obliviously not fresh.
It is a shame when your favorite restaurant is good, but no longer great. It is also now very, very expensive.
That said, the service and food is still top notch!

A wonderful evening!
It’s Five Star “Value for the money” but only for the $75 Indian Summer tasting menu. That was an incredible bargain. If that’s not available the next time we go, we’ll do a la carte.

I had been to the original Bouley on Duane St. two times with my Mom. I returned to NYC with a dear friend and a point of making a reservation at new restaurant. Met and exceeded every expectation. A delightful experience. Food was exquisite. Ambiance was charming. Service was excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed champagne and wine pairings. ❤️❤️❤️

Benjamin was attentive and was spot on with his descriptions of the food. It was my favorite restaurant of my trip! I will recommend it to all of my friends and family and will without a doubt visit again during my next trip to NYC! Side note, it was an event - 4 hours for lunch.

Thoroughly disappointed. Nothing like the original Bouley on Duane St. For $750, there should have been much better service, ambiance and more food. They were even chintzy with the bread! They balked when we asked for two pieces of the same kind, and then didn't include extra in our to go bag when they said they would. The entire set up should be explained in detail on the website, including menu. All of this was only made worse by the clearly much nicer private party in the adjoining room, where people seemed to be served in a formal restaurant setting, rather than being expected to fetch their own silverware from a drawer. Awful all around. Biggest waste of money. Never again.

This was our second visit to Bouley at Home. It is as stunningly good as all the Bouley restaurants before it, perhaps even more so. The lunch is a great bargain -- inventive, light, and intensely satisfying. A special mention of the music is warranted -- good jazz on an incredible music system. As ever, Bouley is for grown-ups who love great food, beautifully served in a comfortably elegant location. Overall, it's as close as one gets to flawless.

Amazing pre-concert dinner. The food on the prix fixe was sublime - beautifully prepared. The first courses - eggplant terrine, mushrooms were amazing as was the innovative chocolates. My daughter loved the breads. We had delicious mezcal cocktails. Sitting at the bar, we were able to see the preparations in front of us as well as on screens which started really interesting conversations. Highly recommend

Absolutely incredible food, wonderfully rich flavors and classic. The service is very attentive. Real pleasure, would highly recommend!

Sit at the counter and watch in awe as a single chef effortlessly churns out plate after plate of world class cuisine using pretty much the same equipment you have at home. The quail eggs with aged Compte "cloud" and black truffles paired with the steak tartare make for an amazing "steak & eggs" that will blow your socks off, not to be missed.
Not the most exotic or exciting dishes, but super fresh and high quality ingredients, expertly prepared before your eyes, with exceptional friendly service in a unique laid back setting, paired with a phenomenal wine list.
It isn't cheap, and it takes a few hours to get through a full meal, but it's not just a meal, it's an event.
