    Not all it's cracked up to be

    Granted I had the burger, so I guess you get what you pay for, but it was probably the worst burger I've ever ordered. Low quality meat and nothing special. The ambiance is bustling, but be prepared to be squished, the tables are very close to one another. Can't say I'd go back.

    Best place in nyc

    If you are going to splurge this is the place to do it.

    Brunch = awesome

    Saturday brunch was fun. Came right before 11AM, so we only waited 10 minutes. Eggs in puff pastry was *incredible*. French toast was also good. Service was extremely attentive despite a huge crowd. Went back the next day for Sunday brunch. Came at 11AM and had to wait an hour. Had the apple cinnamon pancakes (only available on Sundays) -- very yummy! Also had a very good bread basket -- easy leftovers for the day. The service was again quite good, though for some reason slow in receiving the check. Both times, the ambiance was lively and loud. Perfect way to start the weekend.

    Makes you feel cool

    Save the shellfish, the food here is nothing to die for, but the atmosphere certainly is. It's loud, exciting, and fun. The decor and waitstaff, stylish and sometimes belittling, transport you to Paris.

    Transporting experience

    Three years ago my husband made reservations for my bday. We walked in and thought this place is too busy, too bustling and they won't be attentive. Boy were we wrong. They treated us like we were the only ones there. It is sooooo much fun to people watch and the food is amazing! Make sure you make reservations WAY in advance.............

    Lift Your Spirits!

    Balthazar lives up to its reputation. There is hardly anything else more pleasant to me than fine wine and food after a day of work. It's energizing to know that there will be a fun evening ahead while you're getting through the workday. The staff and servers were all courteous and attentive the night I was there. You were made to feel welcome and comfortable from the start. My roasted beet salad and roasted skate were heavenly, along with my glass of savignon blanc. There were so many tempting choices on the menu that I'm positive I'll be back for more. I love a lively atmosphere and that's how it was at Balthazar's. The prices weren't outrageous for the value. I had a very enjoyable dining experience.

    Excellent food and great service

    I took my mom here for an early mother's day brunch. I never go to any restaurant on mother's day as the service and food is never what it should be. The food was fantastic. She cannot stop talking about the apple cinnamon pancakes. The bacon was the best I ever had. I know that sounds strange but it really was. Even the people at the next table were talking about it! Overall, I have to say that I thought it was one of the best breakfasts I have had in a very long time. Only one small complaint I had was that I asked for wheat toast instead of white toast with my eggs and they charged me 2.00 extra. That charge was really unnecessary particulary because I was not told beforehand and breakfast for 2 was almost 40.00 without tip.
