    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.

    One of my all time favorite restaurants

    If you have lived in New York for some time but haven't experienced Balthazar yet...well then you just haven't really lived in New York. Even waiting for your table can be an experience. The bartenders and waiters are the most knowledgable people in the food industry that i've ever met. The wine is superb, the Guiness-infused bread is even a marvelous creation. The food? get ready to enjoy some of the finest eats ever...always worth the value. Burgers and fries, fish, steak...it really doesn't matter what you order. Just be sure to top it off with the warm chocolate cake with handmade ice cream on top. It's a foodie's orgasm.

    Excellent

    Coming from the UK where we have a huge choice of French Restaurants, Balthazar stands out as being excellent, very attentive Staff, lovely ambience, a great place to go if you want athmosphere, good food, looks like it has been transplanted from Paris without the surly service that you sometimes get there. Great value for anyone from the UK.

    No title is worthy

    Balthazar is one of the best restraunts in all of the US. It is busy but never to loud. The Staff is oversized (in a good way) so you will never not have their famous bread or just a cup of coffee. Of course with much great food comes an exprensive tab but it isnt unbearable. The French Bistro style is very warm and nice. The mirrors on the wall make the restraunt look even bigger.

    Excellent and worth it.

    I went to Balthazar a Sunday afternoon with my girlfriend hoping to get a nice lunch in before she went back to California. Of course, when we got there it was packed, but I asked the maitre'd nicely and in 10 minutes we had a nice little seat. Our waitress was incredibly sweet tempered and very knowledgable about the food we ordered, as well as being quite attentive to our needs. And the food, I'm sorry, but the food really was excellent. We split an order of deliciously fresh oysters on the half shell and an amazingly rich and flavorful goat cheese and caramelized onion tart. We then got egg dishes, it being brunch. Hers was poached eggs with blood sausage, which was remarkably good (I'd never had it before. Odd texture, but very tasty); mine was eggs meurniere, in a red wine sauce, with mushrooms. Every bite was a little bit of ecstasy. Seriously, best poached egg dish I've ever had. And we had a very good creme brulee. And excellent coffee. So, in short, wonderful dining experience. I've heard people say that it's sort of like a touristy version of what Americans expect a Parisian restaurant to be like. But I don't particularly care. If the prices were half what they were I'd probably eat there all the time. -J
