This is a sophisticated French restaurant, the staff are friendly but too efficient, a little over zealous, we ordered a cocktail and our starter arrived before we had even taken a sip! We definitely got the feeling we were being rushed and as we had booked a late lunch that was disappointing. The menu was simple but varied. I had... More

Wasn't sure what kind of place it is given it was the March snow storm, went in ask for a menu, look good. Staff was amazing, Food hats off to the chef, the calamari was excellent, their signature chicken dish well seasoned. The bronzini the sauce that goes with it is to die for!!!!

Smaller than usual portions The branzino was embarrassingly miniature 15 mins before our waiter showed up.,, was not even busy Was looking forward to the tuna tartar but it was a mix of measly tuna, cucumber, and radicchio ..,,,, talk about feeling cheated!! Disappointed and annoyed.....

We have been eating at Bilboquet for several years now. I had people from overseas for dinner and invited them there. Our reservation was for 9.00pm. We all arrived together and were told that our table was not ready yet. At 21.30 we inquired again and we were rudely told that our table was not ready. We just walked out... More

I always love to stop by when I go to NYC. I have been going for the past 7 years when it was just a very small place with amazing food and party brunch. This trip I went with my mom for lunch on Sunday . The food was amazing , I always order the Cajun chicken. My other favorites... More

Definitely a place to be "seen". Dining room is intimate yet spacious. Food is good but not great for what you pay. Wine list is very limited. Service is very good but seemed very rushed. Recommend Dover Sole if they have it as a special.

First class French food with warm greetings in French by a warm French Maitre 'd. (Nothing like a real Frenchman at a French restaurant) Great choices but had a salmon (cooked perfectly with some pink in the center) along with a nice mustard sauce in the lentils. Can't miss the best chocolate mousse in the city.

A noisy restaurant with a somewhat limited menu, OK food, and expensive pricing. The salads are unimaginative, and the entrees not memorable.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
