Balthazar has never disappointed me yet! Lunch at the bar is my favorite, Moules Frites or Brandade de Morue and a great glass of Sancerre, makes my day! Great team of wait staff, and the bartenders are fabulous, Cisco and James are most attentive! If you're in NYC or visiting, Balthazar is a must!

Okay, full disclosure, we've eaten here so many times we made it onto "The List" and were handed the private phone number so maybe my opinion is a little biased, but this truly is the best place to go for a terrific breakfast, brunch, lunch, mid-afternoon snack or full-blown dinner. The atmosphere is Parisian-style bistro with a lot of people... More

We went to Balthazar for a birthday brunch without reservations. I mentioned at arriving that it was a birthday celebration. We ordered Brioche french toast and crepes. To our surprise, my daughter's brioche came with a birthday candle, which was very thoughtful since I didn't ask for it but was thinking of how to tell the waitress without my daughter... More

My son and I had dinner, the steak was great and wonderful service. The place is busy and a bit noisy, but all in all good experience.😄

Having lived in NY for 10 years, a top 5 rating does not come easy for me. I LOVE Balthazar. Everything I have had here is amazing. The raw bar is delish, the wine list is perfect for any french lover, escargot cannot be beat in the US, and the fries are beyond addictive. The pate is lovely, the goat... More

I used to love eating here, but lately its felt like a glorified restaurant chain. The food is not what it once was and the service, not as sincere. I'm actually saddened to see its demise.

It's expensive but you get the NYC old atmosphere, delicious food, good service - what more could you ask for in the heart of Soho. A real NYC experience.

Balthazar is truly reminiscent of a great Parisian bistro. Their weekend brunch is my favorite with rich onion soup, eggs Benedict and the best pomes frites anywhere. Excellent service and superb coffee drinks make this a wonderful & relaxing spot for great food and relaxed conversation!

Great experience every time I go and a NY trip is a disappointment if I don't get there. Good food, service and atmosphere. Great people watching.

The food is exquisite and the service impeccable, yet this restaurant exudes has a fun, inviting, and unpretentious atmosphere for dinner (we brought our 10 and 12 yr old kids). Worth booking ahead if you're visiting New York.
