We went to Bouley at lunch time on a Saturday and has the tasting menu. We didn't think the food was great, but it was pretty good.

“TRES TRES BON”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

Fabulous 5 star French cuisine, exceptional staff, a bread cart featuring 12+ types of in-house baked bread, an expert sommelier, extensive menu and wine list, eye watering décor. I'd go again and again if I lived in NYC.

“Elegant, lovely restaurant for any celebration!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

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!

“Top drawer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

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.
