Fabulous experience from beginning to end. Not only was the food stellar, but the dining experience complimented the food. The dining room has a soothing French countryside calmness that simply heightens the taste, sight and smell of the delicious food. We got the prix fixe, 5 courses of various items from the menu, but the kitchen kept sending out little... More

My wife and I, wanting to share a truly celebratory evening for her **th birthday along with our daughter, son and spouses, chose Bouley. Having been fortunate enough to enjoy many of NY's truly finest dining destinations, we're delighted to say that Bouley--true to it's reputation--deserves every accolade.

Based off of the reviews on trip advisor my wife and I chose Bouley as our splurge dining experience this year. Based on everyone elses reviews, it seems like we went to a different restaurant. If you're comparing Bouley to Applebees then sure, this is a 5 star experience, but compared to the other $200+/person options available in NYC (the... More

We dined at Bouley as a 60th birthday treat. We thought the place would be special and it was. Entering Bouleys was like entering another slightly magical world. Firstly it doesn’t seem much like a restaurant: private library, art gallery, antique emporium of gentleman’s club seems far more likely. Only the fact that people are eating food gives the game...

This place really deserves its high ranking on trip advisor. Booked a late 2pm lunch having got married earlier in the day. The rooms are beautifully decorated with fresh flowers and i loved the ambience. nicely buzzing atmosphere. However it was too warm that day to comfortably wear our jackets and seeing other diners remove theirs we followed suit after... More

It's been a few months since I enjoyed the lunch tasting menu at Bouley, but what remains in my mind is the fact it was a highlight of my trip to NYC. Behind the rather plain front door you will be welcomed in an intimate foyer scented by walls of fresh apples. The foyer, in turn, opens onto a sumptuous... More

Wow ! Staying in lower Manhattan we were looking for a special place to go and came across the Bouley. We startet with Organic White Rabbit Salad with Pruneaux d’Agen - the Rabbit was soft as a the most tender fillet mignon - just a dream. As a main we had Lobster and Codfish - excellent !

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.
