We love near Lincoln Center and this is by far the best area restaurant. The menu is highly innovative featuring combinations found in the best restaurants in Europe. We particular enjoy the opportunity to dine on appetizers (not possible pre theater) in order to sample many dishes. Service is well informed and helpful. Loved the artichokes, ratatouille, octopus and linguini.

We went here for the pre-theater menu, $60 per person for three courses. Generally good food; the pasta dish with sausage was very bland but the chicken tagine was delicious. Generous portions. The waitress forgot our wine order but offered us a second glass each to make up for it, which was nice.

The restaurant atmosphere is kind of hard to describe, but I couldn't help thinking I was on the Upper East Side in the 1990's. Elegant but somewhat stuffy with a mature crowd. But a good choice for a pre-Lincoln Center event; they timed it perfectly for our performance.

If you are in the Lincoln Center area and you want to dine at a wonderful restaurant which is not an easy feat in this neck of the woods, walk do not run to 'Boulud Sud'. I honestly think I prefer the menu here and the ambiance to the flagship restaurant 'Daniel'. The staff (from the Manager to the busboys) are top draw and friendly and bend over backwards to make your meal wonderful. The room is just perfect. Upcale yet cozy with stunning antique French Pottery and rustic , french country items placed along the stainless steel counters of the open kitchen. It is touches like this that you make you remember why Boulud is Boulud. I was tempted to ask about buying one of the French antique pottery. The menu! Incredible. You can't go wrong. The special bread with honey and yogurt as part of a starter is out of this world and only $4! The other appetizers we tried, Leek and potato soup and a salad of fresh seafood and greens over a delectable 'Middle Eastern like' light paste (do I taste chestnuts in there with fool?) are amazing. The Pasta with duck ragout was sensational as was the fresh fish served in a reduced vegetable sauce. All of the desserts are formidable as we requested a tasting plate. Such a lovely bustling yet calm atmosphere just adds to a perfect evening before the theatre or after the theatre or...just to make the restaurant your destination in itself..it is that Superb!

Food was beautifully prepared both in taste and presentation. Imaginative menu and excellent service. As we ate early they served from a prix fixe menu so We got to sample three courses. The only negative is we found it a bit noisy.

Great location and respect of time for attending a performance at Lincoln Center. Wait staff was professional and helpful. Choices were varied and just enough for a pre-theater meal. We enjoyed apps of the Mediterranean Mezz - hummus and babaganaush were delicious but a very strong use of garlic - a bit overwhelming for an evening out. Octopus app was good but a little dry. Main entree of chicken - so many wonderful spices and fish with skin on - moist and flavorful. But I enjoyed dessert best! Nice choices of wine by the glass. Our waitress had great time management skills and we never felt rushed.
