    Better than expected...

    I just returned from a late lunch at Balthazar, invited by friends in town from San Fransisco. I usually don't frequent the predictable, "establishment" type places more than once, since I've been here long enough to find my own faves, but Balthazar this time around was quite enjoyable. The food was better than I remembered from when I was there a year ago and before. (I had the trout salad.. needed salt, but a quick dash made it a very respectable entree.) The pain de poilane makes me giggle selfishly at the Atkinser's who shun it... what they miss, they cannot know. All in all, a very, very lovely dejeuner.

    Sunday

    Saturday and Sunday around 1:00 pm are the best. Food is great, service is excellent and the atmosphere is SoHo.

    Excellent...more than I expected

    I went to Balthazar for dinner...around 9:00 pm. I had reservations but still there was a bit of a wait...but nothing that wasn't already expected. When we did get seated, everything was great! The waiter was great...very busy and yet we weren't ignored once! We ordered the Goat Cheese Tart...EXCELLENT... and the Seafood Ceviche ...both were just excellent. Then we ordered the Bar Steak but asked to split it between two of us. Not only did they not charge us the "share a meal" fee that most expensive restaurants do, they even brought it out alread split in half on two separate plates. The Steak was one of the best I've ever had at a restaurant. Then we shared a Creme Brulee for dessert! Excellent! That was my first trip ever to NYC. I am planning another in a few months and Balthazar is on my list.

    Not impressed with the food

    I tried Balthazar a few years ago and was not impressed with the food. I gave it a second try a few days ago and found that nothing has changed much. It's a great room, crowded and loud, with a fun atmosphere, but the food still leaves much to be desired. The shellfish "plateau" looks great, but the brandade was "blah", the duck confit was very greasy and I've had much better fries than the ones that came with the steak. Service was OK and desserts were the best part of the meal. It should not be too hard to turn out good brasserie food to go with the nice ambiance. Hope the kitchen makes an extra effort!

    Wonderful

    I go on my anniversary every year and we have a great time. Food and service are always great and if you go early - 7 or 8 - you will miss the later see and be seen crowd, which is the point.

    It was amazing

    I loved everything about this restaurant for an early dinner we had before a show. The location was great and you can walk around either before or after your meal. The atmosphere of the restaurant was also fun. The service was impeccable since the waitress was very attentive and friendly, and the food was served at a good pace and while it was still hot. The bread to start with is excellent. I had a Belini Martini and pumpkin ravioli to begin with and both were just to die for. For an entree, I had the vegetable cous cous which was also very good. For desert, we had the carmelized bana panne ricotta and it was also excellent. I would definitely return to this restaurant.

    Early Birds Will Love The Breakfast

    If you are an early riser, you will enjoy Bathazar's breakfast and brunch. In before 8 AM on the weekend and your choices are limited to granola (excellent), bread and buns (almost everything outstanding) and an onion quiche (not much of a quiche fan, but it really is great). After 10, the menu changes to more traditional brunch fare and the waffles and the french toast are "to die for." Really good eggs benedict too, but maybe not the most healthy choice on the menu. Good coffee. Good service too with an efficient wait staff. We have visited several times in the past few months and each visit was wonderful. Certainly not an inexpensive meal (figure $45 for 2 - tax and tip)
