Bouley is a wonderful French restaurant to have a romantic dinner or celebrate some special event or occasion. We have dined here many times and it always maintains it high standards.The atmosphere is all the rooms is really lovely, especially the front room with its arched ceilings. The staff always makes you feel welcomed and are very well trained and easy to discuss the food and wine with. The food is always well prepared and beautifully presented [especially the bread cart!! amazing selection!] After dinner there is always a "goodie" back from the chef to take home!

Food we will remember for a lifetime. My wife is even still talking about the bread cart now 6 months later. We went at lunchtime at which the value is amazing.

The staff seem to have hit a perfect balance of making the meal feel very special without being too stuffy or formal. Without doubt they have perfected this more than any other restaurant I have had the privilege to dine in.

I hope to return one day.

Had dinner there 31.12.2013. Six course meal, interesting and tasty combinations, but the warm plates were not warm. Obviously, because of the date the food was expensive, but cold food is unacceptable. As I was there with my kids I did not complain to ruin their night, but would not go back.

After many years of extensive travelling and restaurant-sampling I can report we found the best meal experience ever at Bouley in NY. We had the 5-course tasing menu for a long lunch. Everything, and I mean everything, was superb from our welcome to our departing we could not have asked for better in every way. A patron of the Metroploitan Opera sitting beside us two nights before had declared she had just had the best meal of her life and told us about Bouley. Certainly we felt the same way and will certainly go back next time we are in NY. This is dining perfected!
