    Delightful

    Food was delicious. Had the chef's selection with the wine accompaniment and both my date and myself left overly full . We both enjoyed the food very much. The service was stellar, can't say enough about the staff. Ambiance was warm, romantic, and inviting. Perfect for a special occasion!

    Dessert was the best!

    Go there for dessert because everything else on the menu is overrated. Food needs more "bam"! Sorry Mr. Bouley! It was too bland for my taste palette. Elegant atmosphere, nice place to propose marriage actually as next table to ours did.....It's a good thing we were invited and didn't have to pay the 900 dollar bill:(

    Food, Service, Atmosphere Perfect!

    Have been several times and again the other night. Everything we ordered was sublime! Oysters, foie gras, black sea bass in bouillabaise, the lamb... Service friendly, professional, non-stuffy. Room beautiful -- we love the strikingness and intimacy of the red room. Will be back many more times!

    Best Service Period

    I brought my parents here for Thanksgiving dinner and was expecting amazing food with a bit of snobby service, but I was more than pleasantly surprised. From the moment we got there we were treated as if we were the most important people in the city and there seemed to be more service than guests (despite the fact that the restaurant was fully booked)! There wasn't a moment where I had to call for someone's attention, and at the same time I did not feel like the service was overbearing or interfered with the meal. And lets not forget that the food was spectacular, all 5 courses of it!! From butternut squash soup, to lobster, to turkey, etc, everything was perfect. Excellent all around, and worth the high price tag (at least on special occasions!)!

    Great Food in an Unstuffy Atmosphere

    My main problem with top-of-the-line restaurants is that many times you get personnel who are extremely impressed with themselves. For my money I expect to be treated pleasantly and with (at least) a modicum of respect. My wife and I just had dinner at Bouley, and from food to service I must say it was one of our favorite meals. After we were greeted we were promptly shown to our table, positioned in a corner with pillows and festooned with beautiful curtains. The room itself (the right-hand side of the restaurant) is subtle and romantic. The waiter and the captain were delightful, and they both spent time with us and answered our questions. Our dishes were all excellent (butternut squash soup, lobster appetizer, rack of lamb, duck breast). My only beef : ) was that since my wife doesn't eat fish she requested the soup without the langoustine, which is the expensive ingredient in that dish. We were still charged the full price ($18), which is ridiculous for squash soup. Other than that, the dishes along with the wonderful selection of breads, the little extras, and the parting gift of lemon bread made for a very enjoyable and tasty experience. We will be back.

    Amazing

    Bouley is definitely the best restaurant i have ever been to. My boyfriend and I tried just about every restaurant in NYC and Bouley is theplace we always go back to. the service is attentive, yet never annoying. The food is consistent and never second best. and the decor is inviting. a perfect 10!

    French price, not French food

    I'm french, and each time I'm outta my country, I feel like an ambassador. So I apologize for those who will have dinner here, and will unfortunately think: that's french cuisine. Snobbish, inauthentic high-level atmosphere.small portions (like in the 80's), invention doesn't always match with success.
