The last time I was here was 12 years ago and my memories hadn't failed me. It is still a fabulous place full of buzz. As well as tasty food, well served, the people watching is also real fun. It's definitely not cheap but worth the money for a special night out.

we booked on a saturday night. the place looked good, but it was swamped. the food was great, but it just took a looong time for it to get to us (maybe because the place was packed?) i'd recommend this simply because the food was good.

I love this restaurant. It's pretty much my favorite go to place in the city, time and time again. Love the raw bar, all the fish entrees, honestly, all of it. Service isn't touchy feely, so if your into that, maybe it's not your place.

We enjoyed a lunch and a breakfast at Balthazar. Very nice atmosphere and delicious food. If you have a limited time in New York don't miss it.

I want to start by saying that we had a great meal and service was well meaning if not perfectly executed. I personally have worked at Fouquets on the Champs Elysee in Paris so I know a little about a high profile brasserie experience. What bugged me therefore was how slovenly all of the staff looked. There wasn't one waiter... More

Reservations a month in advance, check. Advice to skip the fish, check. Table for four, check. Steak frites; well, skip the steak frites. The meat was tough and chewy. It was cooked right, the seasoning was right, it was just, well, not very good. Service was generally very good. Checked in a few minutes early and told to go outside... More

Balthazar is a jewel of a restaurant. The atmosphere is great, the food is consistently delicious with a great presentation, the service is excellent. What else can you want ?

An american brasserie, well achieved. Good food, superb steack tartare, friendly service and good atmosphere. Don't go in business mode (there is the normal noise of a packed restaurant), have fun and don't forget the reservation (and some US$'s).

Were recommended Balthazar for brunch by friends who live in New York. Great restaurant in the heart of Soho with varied menu. Were seated promptly and service was efficient. Lively atmosphere and nice surroundings. Book early though especially for sunday brunch.

Early birds have not worms to eat but great breakfast! Cozy place got filled up quickly and thanks to helpful waitress I had the amazing Egg Florentine. Poached egg is perfect and the artichokes and parmesan compliment in harmony. Feeling energetic and super good mood to start off my long day of tour.
