This was one of the most memorable restaurant meals in my life. Extremely elegant setting, but the staff is very down to earth and not snobby at all. The 3 course meal is really an 8 course meal with all the amuse bouches and your choice of about 15 kinds of fresh carved bread. Wines range from highest end to... More

I had dinner at Bouley last night with friends. From the moment we walked through the door, the quality of service was evident. The reception area is intimate with a touch of the whimsical. There were various options for dining e.g. Tasting menu, a la carte and an extensive wine list. The array of breads available was impressive and fun... More

My partner booked Bouley for my 30th birthday dinner and it really was a fabulous meal. We both had scallops for main which were fantastic. For mains we had the beef sirloin which was again cooked to perfection. We both had the warm chocolate fondant for dessert which was incredible and any chocolate lover would enjoy! My partner particularly liked... More

This experience was perfect from start to finish. Ambience, food, service. Perfection. Really lovely lunch starting with the aroma of fresh apples when you enter and continues through every delicious course.

My daughter and I returned to Bouley recently and found that the restaurant was all we remembered: superb food, excellent service and a delightful ambiance. I had the wild caught salmon, and my daughter had the sirloin. Both were magnificent: well prepared, well presented and basically delightful. To add to a perfect dining experience, and to our surprise and delight,... More

We heard about this amazing restaurant and wanted to experience all of it. From the time we walked in to us leaving, everything was impeccable. We had a wonderful table for two surrounded by beautiful flowers throughout the entire room. The service was great and never felt unattended. We decided to do the prix fixe - 3 courses which you...

I came here with a friend since I am always in NYC and Bouley came highly recommended. We booked on Friday and were lucky to grab a 12:30am reservation for the following Friday. I am always critical of trying places that are new to me. Bouley meet my expectations. Tip: the jackets-for-men condition is enforced! They keep extras for those... More
