Great food and service!
I'm a long time patron of Bar Boulud so being able to dine there again is a happy event. I enjoyed being able to dine with friends and chose from the small but varied menu. I felt right at home and plan to eat there soon again.
Some of the best dining in the Lincoln Center area. Great outdoor views of Lincoln Center, coupled with an appealing bistro style menu and a good wine list. More casual than other Boulud restaurants, but the level of the cooking is still top notch. Worth the splurge.
Lovely outdoor setting and great menu. We were happy to support this fine place during pandemic.
My 1st time eating at a restaurant since the start of the pandemic. Under the circumstances, everything went smoothly. Food was very good (would have been excellent except for overcooked, but still tasty, leg of lamb). Didn't know what to expect & was quite happy with the results.
Great place, superb wait staff. Very reasonable prices for quality.
The service was so much appreciated - the service staff as well as us were thrilled to be back after the lockdown making the service extra special and joyful. Food was excellent as usual.
Bar Boulud used to be my least favorite restaurant. No more. Now it is my favorite restaurant, since it (i) serves great food, (ii) is outside, widely spaced for safety, (iii) has set up plexiglass shields to protect each table, (iv) has helpful, knowledgable, waiters, and (v) takes reservations and observes them.
Seating outdoors was comfortable. We were seated under a broad overhang. Service was prompt and goodnatured. They were informative and present when they needed to be. The food was outstanding. We were two for dinner. We had 2 appetizers and shared the filet of beef for two. That filet would have served 3 average people. The servings for the appetizers were also quite generous. It was my birthday. They brought a complimentary dessert.It included a scoop of chocolate mint ice cream which was made at the restaurant. It was excellent. We were extremely happy when we left, and look forward to going back.
Two of us ordered the strip steak, medium rare. It was medium well, not even pink. We told the waiter who wanted to take it back but we didn’t want to wait for another steak to be cooked while the third person was already eating. Kitchen needs to be aware of these issues. Everything else was fine.
Bar Boulud is one of our favorite go-to places on the West Side for great bistro food and charcuterie as well as yummy cocktails. In the time of Covid, they have their sidewalk cafe operation up and running with good social distancing. The only issue we noted is that service is unusually slow. It was fine because we were there for a leisurely conversation with friends, but if you want to get your cocktails and food in a normal timeframe, you'd really have to be flagging waiters down left and right. Luckily no one has a movie.to get to...
Amazing staff! Delicious food!
why do i not get points for my reservation? why do i not qualify?
My wife and I are are long time fans. They have reopened post covid19 with outdoor tables and plastic dividers so we got to enjoy their usual excellent food/service almost like normal times.
Great service even with torrential rain while we waited for our food. The staff were helpful and solutions oriented when the rain started to get worse. Food is always outstanding and service also delivered at a high level of professionalism.
The short ribs special was outstanding!!
Had date at the outdoor seating area. The umbrella was very large and kept us in the shade (it would completely seal off any rain too). Pixie glasses are set up between the tables, which give additional privacy and safety.
Boulud's food has always been excellent, very good quality ingredients expertly prepared.
That happily has not changed, we had very good entree's. For an outside affair it was fine, but I personally do not enjoy sitting on the street with traffic zooming by. Am looking forward to indoor dining some time in the future I hope!
Bar Boulud is my new favorite restaurant. It takes reservations for outside dining, and that outside dining is superb. The service is great, the food is tasty, and the ambience is ideal. Here is a secret: Dining outside at Bar Boulud is far better than dining inside at Bar Boulud.
Food great as usual. First Post-COVID meal out. Felt comfortable in the Plexiglas cocoon.
JOYFUL return to restaurant dining in NYC after four month quarantine for Covid-19 Pandemic. As expected, David Boulud team was ready for eager patrons who were happy to be outside. OUTSTANDING in every way. Everyone wore masks. Recommended distance requirements easily met.
Strong menu via phone link. SUPERB FOOD. Chicken liver mousse, tuna crudo, bouillabaisse, leg of lamb, scallops over asparagus shrimp risotto, chocolate, raspberry, almond cake desserts. Good wines by glass and bottle.
WELCOME BACK to wonderful staff.
Great protocols. Beautiful food. Usual stellar hospitality.
Food and service were great. The whole team is doing an excellent job
Good food, excellent service, prompt seating in an outside, Covid-19 setting.
Dining outdoors was delightfully relaxing. Food was delish.
Very thoughtful in the planning - great to see it back
A really good effort made by restaurant staff despite Covid 19 restrictions. Enjoyable evening! Thank you!
Nice set up for outside dining. Food was good: seafood salad and excellent charcuterie. We were surprised to be billed for bread..service was excellent.
After Quarentine this was the perfect dining experience food , service , safety, atmosphere all excellent .
Excellent, as always! Thanks for a truly wonderful evening!
The service is impeccable and the food is great.
Excellent food and service with appropriate masking and social distancing.
Any Boulud restaurant is tops with me. Love the "terrace" ambience during Phase II in NYC.
wonderful to be able to eat out now. i was well taken care of: gloves, masks, asked me to hold water glass. environment was lovely: trees, partitions, spaces. food was healthy: fish, eggplant with veggies, chick peas. and, beautiful view of rainbow fountain in lincoln center.
The food was wonderful the area was clean and separated beautifully so we felt very comfortable eating there during the reopening of NY we recommend it highly
This was one of our early restaurant dining experiences since the pandemic and it was marvelous. The outside seating arrangement was thoughtful and all the staff wore masks. My husband and I felt comfortable and safe. The food was delicious and the service attentive. Returning to a favorite restaurant was the special occasion.
I've dined at Bar Boulud many times, and it never disappoints! Wonderful service and delicious food!
Our first restaurant dinner after the New York Pause at a favorite neighborhood restaurant. The food and service were excellent as usual. The sidewalk cafe has been argent very attractively with the proper social distancing, tables separated by unobtrusive plexiglass partition and decorative planters. It was a most pleasurable ebening
Bar Boulud delivers an abbreviated menu of their greatest hits during their return in the world of covid. Every step of they way they still show why they are industry leaders in hospitality. The food is, as it always was, consistantly amazing.
Great streamlined menu selection, prepared as requested, attentive service - the charcuterie board outstanding!
