We booked the table in advance and I was quite looking forward of it. By entering in the restaurant, it was hard to imagine behind such a small door there is an apple wall and salon full of flowers. The ambience, rank 110/100!! While the food they truly beat! We ordered $125 three- course dinner, but consider with finger food... More

Our Bouley experience was certainly a memorable one, with elegantly-presented, creative food, a warm ambience and attentive, knowledgeable service. Some of the dishes we were served during our three-course, prix fixe dinner were among the best we'd ever eaten: the ocean broth, lobster, seabass, bed of mushrooms all featuring highly. The desserts were also of an exceptional standard - particularly... More

This is my second review within a few months but I had the privilege of eating here recently (again) for my birthday and felt compelled to say they outdo themselves over and over again. Though we ordered the 3 course tasting, our super helpful wait staff Benjamin and Matthew treated us like queens giving us many extras, generous pours of... More

Fabulous French restaurant! The food presentations were outstanding and the food was truly exquisite and so very delicious! Every course was amazing and I truly savored every bite! Our wine sommelier was very knowledgeable and helped us select a couple of bottles of wonderful wine! Each table is also visited by a bread cart with fresh baked bread offerings. Service... More

We took a car all the way to Bouley and were not disappointed - the decor is eclectic to say the least - exceptional food and service - one of the most amazing deserts called "cloud" that I have ever eaten.

I have been to Per Se, Daniel, 11 Madison Park, and Le Bernardin. I've been to Alinea in Chicago. Bouley beats them all. The food and service at Bouley were absolutely amazing. I had the 5 course lunch tasting menu. which would have been phenomenal in itself, but if I torn between two options (the foraged mushrooms, or the porcini... More

Staying in TriBeCa

Neighborhood Profile
TriBeCa
What’s in a name? In this case it is the unique title of “Triangle Below Canal Street” that became a popular nickname in the 1970s. An attractive neighborhood filled with handsome lofts on the edge of the Financial District, this lovely slice of Manhattan offers plenty of fine dining experiences and art galleries. Plus, it’s home to the city’s most exciting film event, the Tribeca Film Festival, that takes place here every year. TriBeCa is a great place to take a leisurely stroll before stopping into one of the many local restaurants or bars for a satisfying meal and cocktail. You’ll see families out for an afternoon walk, and don’t be surprised to come up with the occasional celebrity sighting. With such a great vibe, many of the city’s most famous residents call this neighborhood home.
