    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

    Horrifying dining experience!

    My boyfriend and I had a late lunch here in Balthazar! When we got there, it was really packed with so many people! It was so noisy and people were standing waiting for a table. It was so crowded and the tables were so close to each other that you can really hear the conversations of those beside you. No privacy at all! The food was not what I expected! It was so bland and the prices are way too expensive! Basically, I would not go there anymore!!!!

    Great Choice for neo-French Fare

    Make sure you call ahead for a reservation for dinner after 6:00pm and all day during the weekend. Favorite Entrees: Duck Confit, Rack of Lamb.
