“Better than in France!”
Reviewed April 26, 2014 via mobile

Awesome pastries! Their chocolates are really good. I ordered a large passion fruit cake for 5 people; one of the best desserts I've ever had!

“Fine dining with relaxed atmosphere”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

We arrived at 6:30, near the end of the prix fixe menu and between the Lincoln Center crowd and the regular diners. Staff was very attentive without being stiff and the food is highly inventive. We had the shrimp (meltingly good) and the meze plate (green baba ganoush, still haven't figured out the herb), followed by the lamb with harissa and eggplant and scallops with chorizo. Tasty and unusual, the eggplant cooked as they do in the Middle east, until it is creamy and the seared scallops seasoned by the spice in the chorizo, and both dishes had a least 2 sauces decorating the plate to add flavor. Dessert was the incredible chocolate plate--rich--and the lightest cannoli I have enjoyed since Boston's Little Italy. I had the non alcoholic hibiscus lemon verbena and my guest had wine; I noted that our server did not get the disappointment over lack of alcohol ordering that I have experienced at other restaurants. We even changed servers mid meal (ours was sent to work outdoors) and the hand off was very smooth. One caution is we noticed when we arrived that servers were getting jostled by their colleagues delivering plates, which meant some lacked the polish they had left the kitchen with. I would say don't match with a performance, as this is a lovely place to enjoy the food on it's own and linger.

“Thanksgiving day”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

After a long discussion about our "gala dinner" we decided to check which places serve a dinner and which type of menu do they have. Our search was limited as we were absolutely sure that it should be a very good french restaurant. As u have already understood it was a difficult task cuz everything was booked in advance. But we were lucky to find Boulud Sud, it was love at first sight. Thanks a lot for you hospitality and amazing cuisine.

“Really well-done, interesting dishes”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

The dishes are unique and very well done. We enjoyed every single one. The service is perfect. The only downside is that the ambiance is nothing special. It's more suitable for a business lunch or dinner, as the interior of the restaurant lacks a romantic feel. Though, with that said, you won't be disappointed going here on a date.
