    Wonderful

    Everything that i've ever had here has been delicious, from their ceviche to the steak tartare to the steak frites and desserts and bread next door. The atmopshere is loud and fun and I had a great time drinking bellini's here on New Year's Eve. It's a New York institution and it's no wonder why, it's priced fairly, the food is amazing and it's a fun place. I really want to come here for breakfast as well in the near future.

    ladies night

    My girl friends and I decided to celebrate our birthdays at Balthazar this evening. The beet salad and goat cheese appetizer was superb along w/ the desserts. The wine was a great value. The skate and stripe bass was nothing to brag about it. I nibbled on my friend’s short rib special THAT WAS AMAZING! I also tried a bite of my friend’s steak frittes which was...... average. I thought the atmosphere was cool and the service was outstanding. We ordered dessert and the waiters took it upon themselves to place candles in them. I'm glad I paid a visit to this Soho staple but not so sure if I would go back. I feel their sister place" Schiller's" is better and less expensive and a bit less touristy!

    Highly recommended

    My sisters birthday dinner was superb. We arrived 20 min. early & were seated immediately. The food & service top notch (pate, beet salad, mussels, lamb, carafe of cote du Rhone, warm chocolate cake w/ice cream). Unfortunately, someone who arrived for dinner, already drunk, sat next to us and proceeded to knock over two full glasses of champagne & some water. The wait staff and hostess immediately came over to clean up, apologized and repeatedly asked if were okay and offered to pay our dry cleaning bills. We said not necessary, and we ordered one dessert to share. Well they sent over two desserts and comped both of them for our inconveniece without our even asking. And they cut off bar service to that table, so the party proceeded to leave. Now that's great service.

    Very satisfied

    after hearing so much about this place...we decided to give it a shot last nite. The 4 of us walked in with no reservation, and was told that the wait would prob be ~ 2 hours for a table, but we could check the bar area and see if we could be seated there. Within 15 minutes, we managed to snatch 4 seats at the bar. We ordered some drinks and appetizers, everything were great. The bartenders were so attentive and entertaining (they kept cracking sarcastic jokes). Tried the "Le Grand" seafood appetizers, if you're in a big group, you won't be dissappointed. The steak tartare was also great....we loved everything. And for a restaurant with that great of a level of food & service, we thought the bill was very reasonable as well. Would definitely come here again!

    A very nice experience!

    My wife & I arrived 5 minutes before our reservation time and were promptly seated within 30 seconds. The place was noisy but in a good, everyone is enjoing themselves kind of way. The martinis were good, the onion soup incredible. One thing I noticed was that the refilling of glasses (wine, water) was done not only by our waiter but by nearby waiters who were helping/serving other diners. So even if our waiter wasn't present, our dirty plates were removed, our glasses were constantly refilled. I wish more places were like that. The main course (steak for me, chicken for my wife) was delicious. Whoever mentioned "try the the chocolate bread" in their review was on point. It was scrumptious. (I didn't know such a thing existed!) . Within the restaurant, resides a bakery; which is nice because in some places the bread is really good & makes you wonder "where did they get it from?" In this place, you can buy it. (I will return for that chocolate bread!) We will definitely be back.

    Great

    My wife and I spent the weekend in the city to get away from it all. We love going out to eat and were norowing down our option of were we would dine. My brother had been to Balthazar before and highly recommended it. Most of the time we prefer steakhouses and italian but we gave it a try. It was a great dinning exsperiance. The waiter was teriffic, the food was top notch, and the atmosphere was exciting. We went on a saturday night and had the short rib dinner, it was out of this world the meat was so tender and we feel in love with the mashed potatoes that were served with it. The seafood appitizer for two was so fresh and the presentation was wonderful. We also had dessert and drinks and compared to some of the high end steakhouses the bill was very resonable. We loved it, and will be back!

    Classic

    Reading reviews and seeing what people get pissed at is always a hoot. That guy asked for a newspaper and got one thats day old? You're in a restaurant and a damn good one at that! What are you asking for a newspaper for? Eat your food and look at the beautiful decor. Perhaps have a meaningful conversation with the person you're dining with..ok got that out of my system. Balthazar is expensive, crowded and consistently GREAT. Perhaps that is why its expensive and crowded. Excellent food and atmosphere. I have a tradition of going there every Christmas Eve with the same group of friends. Highly recommended.
