When you walk in, the fragrance of apples greets you. Look at the walls, hundreds of apples. The food is excellent, but the service was a little off. They forgot to bring a wine out (paired the wine with the food) playing catch up all evening. Requested the Maitre'd to select my dinner. Wonderful... read more

This is a French restaurant with a jacket requirement for men. The entry has fresh apples on shelves to the ceiling. Although we arrived earlier than our scheduled 1:30 lunch, we were immediately seated in the basement area that looked like a wine cellar. We enjoyed the Tasting Menu, $55, 5 courses, plus chef's app and dessert. I had salmon... More

We chose this restaurant solely on Trip Adviisor's rating, and will remember the experience for a long time. When you walk in, you enter a room with shelves filled with apples. It is very unusual and smells wonderful. All the rooms are elegant and tactfully decorated. We ordered from the lunch prix fix menu, and did not realize what we... More

Ask for the gourmand menu - its well worth it. Have Adrian match wines to it. 3rd time there in 6 months - will be back.

We went for lunch and experienced Bouley's prix fix. To say that it was one of the best meals would really be an understatement. The service was impeccable. The choices for the prix fix met all three of our taste buds. I loved the personalized service and felt that we were treated like royalty. The elderflower lemonade is the best... More

Went to Bouley for a business dinner last night. It was a incredible dining experience. We did a three-course menu which wound up being seven courses after a series of amuse Bouche and pre-desserts. $125 per person was a bargin when you take into account the quality of ingredients being used or when compared to other restaurants of this caliber....

My wife and I dined here on a bitterly cold Friday night. We arrived chilled to the bone as the taxi dropped us at the wrong corner. However, once we arrived, experienced a very warm and welcoming greeting from the staff and had our first drink...excellent Tanqueray Gin Martinis....we were in the mood for a spectacular meal. We were not... More

The food here is of an exceptionally high standard, but with a very high-priced wine list, the whole experience was eye-wateringly expensive. You can have better food and wine in London at this level. We enjoyed our evening, although we felt that one of the countless waiter was a bit sniffy towards our son, who is 24, and whom we... More

My wife and I travel all over the world for very good food. So after reading the reviews about Bouley, I was very hopeful and took her there for her birthday celebration. The food and service exceeded my expectations and even most of the reviews. We had the 6 course tasting menu and each dish was fantastic...really fantastic. Many previous... More
