Nice place. The food is good, but could be a litle bit more natural (chicken). We do not need 20 different bread types, though they are very good. The crab and mushrom was not so good and strange with brown sauce on the lobster. The service was good, but a litle bit to fast and no small talking. I wanted... More

Very special and unique. The place to go in New York City if you want to feel truly cared for, and like you have been transported one of the best restaurants in Europe. Where you don't want to leave at the end of the night because you feel so good, but can leave, because you have been so well cared... More

Bouley is a throwback to the old ways of dining and eating. It's a bit over the top now for me at 68. Been there done that but I was taken last night by dear friends and we had a wonderful time and I fasted all today. Perhaps the entree's were to laden with our choices and beyond the initial...

My wife and I celebrated a milestone birthday in September and had a fabulous experience. We splurged for the prix fix with wine accompaniment and reveled in our food choices while learning about the fantastic wine list. When I happened to inquire about a wine the sommelier was preparing to pour for a neighboring table, he promptly insisted we taste... More

Another wonderful meal at this fine restaurant in downtown NYC. We are surprised and confused why Bouley does not have a Michelin star rating, as their food, decor and service are top contenders with other fine restaurants such as Jean George, etc. The food was expertly prepared and served with beautiful presentation. Especially fun is the "bread cart" that circulates... More

Warm and inviting decor with old world charm- only updated. Our service was excellent - they work as a real team here. Our meal was really exceptional even though we chose the smaller prix fix menu. Not huge poprtions, but what you get is very tasty. (note: there were too many breads to choose from). A very nice wine list,... More
