Lunch tasting menu is really the best value for the price (59 USD for an amazing 5 courses menu... where each customer can choose between different options).Really beautiful presentations, deep intense flavours, excellent combinations. Service is awesome, they really make you feel special. This might be the best restaurant in NYC.

Went back to check out restaurant before its eminent closure. Took the whole family for lunch. Tasting menu was unbelievable. Best lunch since last time- probably best meal in years. Please visit this restaurant before it closes end of March. It will be expensive.

I make an annual trip to NYC in January for business and then a weekend of museums, movies, theatre and dining. Most of my meals are taken at places offering foods I can't find anywhere close to where I live in the Blue Ridge Mountains - i.e. dim sum and authentic Chinese food, Jewish food like premium bagels and smoked...

Enjoyed dining at Bouley. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the wait staff is attentive. The food is utterly flavorful and delicious. At the beginning of the meal and during, if wanted, the waiter will bring a cart to the table with a major selection of fresh bread to choose from. Careful! While they are all so delicious and overly... More

My favourite high end restaurant in NYC since first visiting in the late nineties. Came for the extraordinarily great value five course lunch. Faultless food, a terrific wine list, professional, friendly service in a classic room. Devastated when I heard that Chef Bouley was moving on to other things. If you've never been,or even if you have, get in quick... More

This is the point: we have visited many starred restaurant we had to give just 3 points because, though the food was absolutely excellent, unfortunately there was nothing that we will never forget. And this is an issue when you visit a starred restaurant of this kind. Beautiful location, outstanding service,perfect food but nothing to remember. And for such a... More

Excellent service and team The ambiance is a bit average for New Years night. The two dinning saloons could have been prepared better for this special occasion. Mellow music in the back ground was pleasant.
