Second time visit earlier today for lunch following our last visit almost two years ago, and it was even better than we expected it to be. If there is a heaven then the strawberries and almond ice cream dessert will no doubt be on the menu, along with the beef cheeks that came with an amazingly smooth and buttery mash... More

Bouley, for lunch, is the best. I visit NY several times a year and sometimes my NY friend and I try a different restaurant for lunch, but we always return to Bouley. Lunch is not cheap, but it is not absurdly expensive and it is well worth it. I recommend the tasting menu - fabulous food, choices for each of... More

This was the best meal in our recent trip to NYC. Everything we had was exquisite, from the bread, tasting menu, wine, dessert. Delicious and isurrounded by a very enjoyable atmosphere. Although, we were surprised that men need to wear a jacket even if its 1:30pm and 85F outside. But the hostess was really nice and quickly brought one for... More

Was really looking forward to our dinner at Bouley, we had done some research and decided to celebrate our 2nd anniversary at this place. As soon as we walked in the front door we were greeted by a hostess that put a damper on our so awaited night. I committed the error of not checking the dress code so my... More

Why this restaurant only has 2 Michelin stars is a mystery. There is no question it should be rewarded with a third. Many 2 star Michelin restaurants are quite happy to rest on their laurels. Not Bouley, it continues to strive for perfection at every level. Mind you I am quite happy they are stuck with 2 otherwise their $55,... More

With all that has been said over the years about this restaurant, this was our first visit: a bit pricey, but fully worth it. The staff is friendly, well-humored and approachable (not stuffy), and from the delicious breads to the great wine selection to the array of entrees then desserts, this is a superlative venue. Getting to TriBeCa from midtown... More

My wife and I visited Bouley to celebrate our anniversary. It was simply incredible. We had a six PM reservation and were seated promptly. The main dining area is small yet very comfortable.

What a lovely lunch we had a Bouley! I had a foodie friend who was visiting NYC and we decided to go to Bouley for a "ladies lunch". The service was extraordinary; not a detail was missed and they make everyone feel like a VIP! All the employees of Bouley are at the top of their game and it shows.... More
