Nothing justifies $70 per person for lunch with 3 friends. I had a frisée salad, fries and spinach, and my friends had the prix fixe lunch and they each had a glass of wine. We sat outside (very pleasant); waiter was attentive; food was good, but nothing justifies such a pricy lunch.

A friendly waiter didn't make up for the mixed quality of food at our table. One of us had the prix fixe for dinner and was fine with it but raie is a cheap fish so I thought they could have done better for the price. Another ordered two salads and thought they were mediocre. My beet soup was fine but I had to send back my boar/pasta entree. It looked vile and the sauce was amateur and overcooked. We also had the frisee liver salad and there was too much vinegar in the overabundant dressing. I question who makes the food and I suspect the sous chefs have no understanding of French food.

I have been to many Daniel Boulud establishments. The food and service is usually superb. Bar Boulud is the exception. The one in Miami is also mediocre. I had the cabbage salad which was nothing special. Then I had the chicken breast which was tiny and dry. We both had different cups for dessert. I had the coupe de caramel and my wife had the coupe de pomme. They were both unappetizing. Like something a group of elementary school children would create in home ec. class. They were basically over sweetened goo in a water glass with no artistry or subtlety. Like eating thickened artificially apple flavored sugar water from a cup. Our waitresses were surly. This is not what we have come to expect in a Daniel Boulud restaurant. Never again.

A long, leisurely Friday lunch at the counter - was fabulous, as it had been for the last 10 or so visits. Service is attentive (even the busboy said hello and asked how i was doing), but not oppressive. Food is truly excellent, if you're willing to pay somewhat heftily. Honestly highly recommended.

I don't have enough superlatives for the Prix Fixe lunch. Service was impeccable, waiter knowledgeable and graceful; manager came by and we engaged him in a conversation which he seemed to genuinely enjoy, we certainly did. Water glasses constantly refilled. Food: Soup of the day, delicious, followed by the best roast duck that I’ve ever had (no exaggeration). Crispy outside and melting inside served on a bed of mushrooms and mashed potatoes. Coconut sorbet that tasted like coconut. My lunch companion had a country pate and pasta with ragout that was outstanding followed by a pineapple sponge cake with pineapple sauce and pineapple sherbet that was divine. She had asked for an ice cream substitution with another dessert then switched to this one, but surprise! They still brought her an additional DELICIOUS ice cream. Yes, the portions are not large in our supersized eating world, they are fine, I was satisfied and I’m a hefty eater. Will take my husband to lunch asap.

I have given this restaurant all the chances I am going to give it. I have gone on different nights and at different times of day as well as different seasons.... It's all the same... Worse than poor service and only sub par food. Done
