    Fine place just come early!

    My friend and I came here a few weeks ago for brunch. The food was great and our server was very nice and helpful. Yes, this place is a little crowded but hey its a neighborhood place with good food.

    Disappointing!

    Attitude, cramped seating, ok food, incredibly noisy and overpriced. Not worth it!

    Your time has passed

    I had been eager to go to Balthazar for a very long time and finally made it last Friday night. It is just a big, noisy brasserie in the style of Pastis or Les Halles. The food was adequate (we had steak au poivre and steak'frites) or excellent (the salmon). The waiting staff was indifferent, although not rude. I arrived first and the very young and unimpressive hostess told me I had to wait for the rest of my party, at which point the savy and efficient man at the front desk said'"Of course she can sit down now!" After that triumph, the rest was indifference: I had to chase the waiter to ask for a drink while I waited, and in several occasions our table spent a few minutes trying to catch his attention. I don't think that the prices match the quality of the service nor the atmosphere, as it is not a very comfortable restaurant. The bar seemed very active with young people. Don't be fooled by the perennial mob of tourists gawking outside--it must be advertised prominently in travel guides!

    Forget it.

    Noisy, depressing, mediocre food but great service. Unfortunately the kitchen considers any request an opportunity for an up charge, which of course the server apologizes for, but slicing a tomato to replace the cheese in an omelet for a lactose intolerant patron is a burden on the kitchen, despite the fact that cheese costs more than a tomato. But the labor to do it will cost you.

    not worth it!

    went there to celebrate a very special event. The food was just okay, not great. It was very expensive for the quality. We each had steak, and it was on the tough side, not at all tender. I wouldn't go back, nor would I recommend it. It was overpriced and just okay...don't bother! Plenty of other great places to go.

    Simply the Best

    Just to keep it simple here. One can dine at any of the great restaurants in this city, from LeBernardin, Daniel, Aquagrill and even Raouls.......however for me they dont compare with Balthazar. To be perfectly honest we went in the other morning just for the Moules frite..........thats it.......and for us it was more satisfying than most restaurants in the city. One of a kind.

    Why Balthazar is so great

    The food is delicious, the ambience superb, but the key ingredient in what continues to make Balthazar an exceptional restaurant is the gracious and very attentive service of everyone from the maitre d's to the wait staff and chef. It's easy to rate a restaurant for the usual and expected, but what really counts is when the unexpected happens--and how the staff handles it that really leaves a lasting impression. Last evening's celebratory dinner with a friend was one of the latter situations, and everyone on the staff couldn't have handled it any better--and that's what sets apart a great restaurant from one that doesn't seem to care about their customers. Keith McNally gets it right, his staff gets it--and that's why Balthazar deserves 5 stars!
