What Insiders Are Saying
The incredible People Watching available at Balthazar makes scrunching into a tiny table and overpaying for brunch totally worth it. Say whatever you want about this place, you can’t take away the fact that the kitchen gets it done.
Balthazar in terms of decor and menu is akin to an authentic Parisian brasserie. The food is good and satisfying as is the wine list. The service is highly attentive and knowledgeable. Changing the highly authentic paper tablecloth after the main course and before dessert is rarely done in Paris and is disruptive to conversation. Sitting cheek by jowl with the people next to you is indeed authentic as far as French brasseries go but the result of cramming so many happy patrons in the large space was noise of snow-blower proportions. We were there on a Saturday evening and I warrant it would be quieter for lunch, brunch, and other times in the week. I unhesitatingly recommend Balthazar for a good meal.
Checking in with hostess was too chaotic. Otherwise, the food and service were excellent
There was a considerable wait to be seated, however our party was not alone in the confusion. I realize that the restaurant is a massively popular business, however over 30 minutes to wait for a reservation can be bothersome. We were given complementary flutes of champagne for our inconvenience. Service and food was wonderful.
Live in the neighborhood
Been there for years . I am there for convience and when out of town visitors “have” to go there. Just taking the time to review it - how soulless is the experience
There are other issues related to management that makes me not want go back
We have been eating here every time we are in the city, but it was our first Sunday Brunch. As expected everything was terrific. You can't go wrong.
Had a superb breakfast. Impeccable service and charming interior. Great neighborhood to walk through afterwards. Worth the detour.
Always a great!
This was my second visit. Most favourite tower of fresh delicious first quality seafood! Fois gras was the finest. Duck was most tasty . Love the hustle and bustle of the place. Part of its charm. Attention to detail is important. Wait staff is excellent. Almost invisible as food and plates appear and magically disappear at just the right time.
Wonderful restaurant, service amazing, best ever. I woul recomend this restaurant for any visitor in NY
No pueden dejar de pedir los postres son realmente una delicia
Always fun and reliable
Wonderful food.seafood was so fresh steak anc fries great. Our waiter was so friendly and helpful with wine selections. Loved it
Delicious and excellent service! I had a lot of questions and the server was super patient and extremely helpful.
As always, great food and service. Staff is gracious and well trained. Food is fresh and consistently delicious. Have been coming to Balthazar for many years and it is a quintessential NY experience. Bravo!!!
We always enjoy this restaurant when we go to NYC. Always consistent and good quality food. The atmosphere is always exciting and lively.
Always the best!!
A wonderful dining experience. Visited for breakfast after 4 years and was served with utmost patience and kindness.
I observed that the restaurant is looking a tad dilapidated and some refurbishment and upkeep won’t be bad yet retaining the classic look.
I went next day to the Balthazar deli next door and the savouries I picked up were delicious. Carried the jumbo cookies for back home I would go back over and over again on each trip of mine to NYC , to both to the Balthazar restaurant and the bakery.
Made a reservation for breakfast and was seated ina fabulous banquet in the back, a total view of everything! The bowl of cappuccino never disappoints and the food hot and delicious. Great as always!!
Fab service Fab food wonderful staff 👍
One of the few places I've known and loved in NYC for 20+years. Got our first table the month it opened, never been disappointed. Check not for the faint of heart, but worth it.
Great just very noisy
Balthazar did not disappoint! Amazing French food at an iconic spot. Paris in the middle of Soho!
Went to celebrate my daughter's 25th Birthday and was pleasantly surprised at how delicious the food was. Would DEFINITELY go back. Already started passing on the word to others. Thanks Balthazar!!!
Way too many tables crammed together. You are so close you can touch the people around you. Feels more like a cafeteria than a restaurant.
The menu options, the food selected and the service were all outstanding! A tad tight for seating but we were fortunate to have lovely fellow diners at each side. A fantastic evening1
Absolutely Stupendous!! Service was alert + seamless. Ambiance is cozy, Food was delicious.we loved the entire dining experience. Brunch Saturday!!
This place is amazing and the food delicious. I’ll come back!
Enjoyed breakfast here with daughter. Both of us had avocado toast with poached eggs. It was good but have had better at other restaurants. Great service and lovely setting.
We really enjoyed our time at Balthazar. We were seated quickly, but our table was very close to the table next to us on both sides. Our server was wonderful as well as our food-handmade linguini and lobster!
Inside the restaurant was colar than outside. Our food frozen...
Waited too long for an open table rez
Always exceptional food and ambience. We will come back next time in NYC.
Love this restaurant. We visit every time we’re in NYC. Only critique was wait time in food. Granted it was lunchtime rush, but it was just 2 of us. Nothing complicated. 4 tables served before us as we sat and waited. Never had that experience before, and will chalk it up to just a slow day. Food still excellent.
Great!! Loved our experience!!
The food was great!
I took the grilles octopus. My partner opted for the steak with french fries.
The wine list is great.
Very cosy!!!! Aka seats too close
But the food was amazing
I have been coming here for years and NEVER disappoints. Food AMAZING atmosphere can't be beat. Will continue to come almost every NYC trip.
We were pretty much dismissed by our waiter. He never told us the specials but he told others and we were bummed because they sounded good. He actually reached over us to tend to the table next to us. I’ve been there several times with out of town friends but it’s not really worth it. It’s worth a look inside but the food is average.
My favorite place in NYC.
