We try to eat in Balthazar each time we are in NYC and it never fails to disappoint. We were here in January 2017 and prior to this the last time was October 2926, but I forgot to write a review! The buzz in the restaurant is always fantastic as is the service. Food is always wonderful and we will... More

Its a lot louder than i thought it would be, food was so so, altho i had the veggy options, steak apparently was amazing. i certainly think you can get better food in nyc for a lot less, but on the whole nice, but very expensive

Famous take on French bistro. Always busy and vibrant with a sense of something special. The food is great in an American twist on French. The seafood platter is the house special. The wine list is extensive and varied mostly French. We have visited many times but booking is essential.

Had a great Sunday brunch and food was excellent as always. Also enjoyed a birthday brunch there 2 years ago. This is the one place I go whenever I am in New York to be sure of great food, fantastic ambiance and Parisian bistro decor.

Great hopes for this wise man. Sadly it seems that this restaurant thrives on reputation and to 'be seen' there rather than fundamental quality, value and basic hospitality knowledge. Your steak frites at $41 is a rump - this is not advertised on the menu and one has to pry to get this information.(Rump a much lesser cut than, say,... More

We were recomended by a friend to come to this great restaurant with a European design. We were attended by lovely Jenisa who helped us choose the food and a great Pinot noir from borgonhe. Try the cheeseburger!

We came here to celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday. We made reservations about two months in advance and told them it was her 21st birthday. Well, did they rise to the occasion! When we arrived, M. Voudier (?) the maitre'd told us our table was not ready but it would just be a few minutes. We had a drink at... More

Staying in SoHo

Neighborhood Profile
SoHo
Once the artistic hub of New York, SoHo is now one of the premiere shopping destinations in the world. Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway is teeming with big-name stores and people during the day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to explore. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district – the world’s largest collection of intricate and elegant cast-iron architecture. What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city.
