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.
Great food and service, loved the music too
Paris bistro NY style. A fun place to spend an evening. And a few extra dollars.
Muy buena comida
It was excellent!
They brought a birthday cake out for my daughter. So sweet. Waiter was very nice and helpful.
Fabulous food from start to finish! Great ambiance! Desserts subservient!
Excelente todo. Me fascina el Restaurant. La comida de primera.
Llegamos antes de tiempo y un host encantador que nos ofreció darnos la mesa antes de nuestra reservación. Decidimos pasar primero a tomar una copa al bar y en cuanto acabamos nos dieron la mesa. Cenamos como siempre delicioso. Un gran servicio de una mesera muy amable. La pasamos muy contentos. Siempre que visitamos Ny bes obligado ir. Felicidades !!
The snail is so hard to take out all of them, then the waiter help to use the teeth pickers to take it out, the snail is not fresh mean very tough could was freezes one, tasteless. Same as the duck leg is made from the freezer material.
Food was excellent- but the atmosphere was overwhelming and it was very claustrophobic. Once was enough...
Tolles Ambiente mitten in NY. Muss man einfach mal erlebt haben. Kommen jedesmal hierher wenn wir die Chance haben.
The employees specially the receptionist were amazing, they were friendly, attentive and incredibly good people.
Tables really close together which sometimes creates difficulty hearing your conversation.
It was delicious as always, just a little crowded.
the special of the night, short ribs, were not good. they graciously took off the menu.
Great atmosphere! The staff was wonderful, they were very attentive. The Seafood Tower and steak were fabulous. Dessert was a perfect ending. Did not feel rushed to leave, although they were fully booked. Make a reservation!!
As always, amazing food and experience! The service is also always at its best.
Good food, good quick service. Tables are close together so can be noisy and not personal but great overall
Balthazar is a fantastic restaurant I’ve ever had. Love it.
The food was sooo yummy! Service was fantastic! and the restaurant was beautiful.
Omgoodness WE LOVED EVERYTHING about Benjamin Steakhouse Prime. Made it by mistake. Always ate at the sister restaurant Benjamin Steakhouse, high testosterone!! Well Benjamin Prime is ROMANTIC, BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS-VERY ATTENTIVE STAFF—my husband and I celebrated our 50th anniversary. We felt so comfortable with the 30 age group to us!!! The staff knew it was our 50th and REALLY MADE US FEEL SO SPECIAL. by the way the peas and onions are our favorites!!!!plus surf and turf and lamb chops !!! Thank you BSP♥️
Yo, personalmente amo el lugar, es popular, entonces es ruidoso, pero a mi me encanta
I got a salmon that was uncooked but they fixed that in a heartbeat and everything else was great!
This time we went for ;brunch. Menu a bit limited and while good, it was not outstanding or especially French in content. Eggs tend to taste the same, regardless of the menu of origin. Serice ecelent and management especially accomodating to handicapped guests. Very nice and much appreciated. I wold be more inclined to recommend for lunch or dinner.
My favorite spot in the city for breakfast.
Food was great! Ordered monkfish and manager ordered steak au poivre. The ambience was a bit noisy, but cool. We saw some actors we recognized. The server was miserable so it made the experience a little less enjoyable.
Best service. Food was to die for! Can’t wait to go back!
Make a reservation! The staff was very friendly and the food great!
Pricey for lunch but food was really good. Orders were brought out quickly . We had onion soup, tuna nicoise, shrimp cocktail, eggs Benedict and beet salad.
Service was good but Food overpriced and not worth the money. Definitely better places in NYC more deserving of the price. Tables also extremely cramped.
A must-visit place in NYC. It's like stepping off the busy streets in SOHO and landing in a Paris bistro. Delicious food, gracious service - despite always being packed. I was seated right on time with my OpenTable reservation, even though I was a solo diner. I will continue to visit Balthazar again and again.
We asked to add an egg and avocado as you can do according to the menu, we got everything dismantled in separate plates, the presentation of the food was poor. The price was too expensive compared to the service and food we received
Always delicious we go every time we come to NYC.
Excellent service! Fernando was our main waiter and made our evening extra special!!!
One of our favorites anytime we are in the city! We always make it for eggs Benedict!
