Dining at Bouley is like entering a different realm of exquisiteness! The charm, the elegance, the artistry of the dishes served and the tastes are out of this world. One of the best restaurants I have ever eaten at, it delivers on all points.

If you want an exceptional memorable restaurant experience you have found it here. This serves contemporary French cuisine in a stylish downtown setting not formal but a lovely fancy comfortable room. You will pay for this pleasure but it is worth the cost.

My girlfriend took me to dinner for my birthday and this had been on my list for a while! I am a big fan of French cuisine and decor so she knew what she was doing. I totally love the dining room and how cozy it is. Even the bathroom is to die for. I had one of the cocktails... More

Bouley is amazing I have been for lunch and dinner. The four course lunch is a steal and great for a special occasion. The dinner equally amazing but you will pay more. It is upscale but not stuffy. I am planning to go back very soon.

Hurry before David Bouley closes this location. An exquisite dining experience. Comfortable, inviting, friendly and superb food. You pay for your pleasure but boy oh boy you will savor every bite and every sip.
