I went to Bouley for a special birthday lunch, and it was truly spectacular. The restaurant is gorgeous, the staff is fantastic, the food is amazing, and the wine pairings are perfection. We opted for the five course tasting menu with wine pairings. From the amuse bouche(s) the chef sent out through the incredible chocolate dessert, each mouthful was better... More

I've been to a lot of restaurants with tasting menus but Bouley was a little slow in their service. Granted it was New Years Eve and they were busy, I just think they allow way too much time between courses. I think 2 hours is expected but we were nearing 3 hours before we even got to dessert. That being... More

Been a customer since the original Bouley opened. Always held the restaurant in the highest regard. Food was very good, but the service was terrible. The sommleier blatantly lied about Chef Bouley being in the kitchen when in fact he never was that evening. Wait staff was clueless. The price was absolutely obscene. $ 395. per person for a 8...

My second visit. Had a good meal but but a great meal, which was a shame as it was my husband's first visit and I wanted him to love it as much as I did the first time. It wasn't bad, just lacked the special edge I remembered. Did the wine paring which was lovely with the food. Service was... More

I've eaten at the old Bouley, then while it was Bouley Bakery and at the "new" location. The name changes, the menu changes, the address changes, but the food has always been and remains spectacular. The Tasting Menu is the way to go, it's just one delight after another. Don't like sea urchin? You will at Bouley. You just can't... More

The decor was too authentic, the ambiance too romantic, the food too tasty (and plentiful) and the staff was too nice.

My wife and I went for her birthday and we had the tasting menu, which was remarkable. We loved the dining experience there so much we went back again, and our second lunch was just as good as the first. This was as fine a meal as we've had, yet the price was much more reasonable than other top shelf... More

Still a favorite spot 25 years later. The lunch menu is an excellent value. The room is quiet, romantic, and ever so comfortable. The perfect spot when you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of New York for two... or three hours.

The restaurant has a nice seating area on arrival, while awaiting your table. Restaurant nicely decorated and warming. For a top restaurant, it was not stuffy. Food options lean more toward seafood but several options available. We had the rabbit salad and mushrooms, chicken and sea bass, and chocolate cake and passion fruit dessert. All excellent and well seasoned. The... More
