Amazing ambiance and consistently good food every time I visit!

Recommends

What can you say? It never changes, it never falters, and it's always jammed. If it wasn't such a slavish tribute to Paris brasseries, you could even call it the ultimate New York restaurant. Certainly, it's a hell of a lot better than the places in Paris that it emulates.

It's still trendy and touristy but the raw bar is still great and some of the French traditional dishes like the Steak au Poive and Moules Frite still stand tall.

the brasserie is fine. noisy busy. decent food. speedy service. this is about the bakery: why would you serve stale croissants? maybe you're saving a penny, but you surely lost me. Adieu mon vieux!!

Loved the scene – I just discovered this place on my last trip to New York City. The food was really good -- and totally reasonable in price for New York. I loved the French brasserie ambiance too. It was crowded and we ate early to get a seat, but it was worth it.

Best Food in Manhattan – You could go here for the atmosphere alone, but the FOOD IS SIMPLY TO DIE FOR! I have been twice and each time the food has been some of the best Ive ever eaten. The food is amazing, and the service was perfect. This is a place you dont want to miss... make sure you make a reservation :)!

Classic NY Experience... – My all time favorite NYC restaurant!

The scene is very NY - crowded and busy, yet intimate.

Highly recommended: LeBalthazar (for seafood lovers) - not only is this a delicious cold entree with a nice white wine or champagne but the food presentation is very impressive.

Also, the mussels with frites is amazing as is the bread.

Cannot praise this restaurant enough.

Reservations are recommended unless you are stopping by in the afternoon.

Well worth a visit and maybe a revisit next time I'm in NYC – Took me back to a visit to La Coupole in Paris although less formal. Large open seating area. HUGE floral bouquet. Great selection of East and West Coast oysters. Very busy at dinnertime on a Thursday but servers seemed organized and efficient. I started with the warm goat cheese and caramelized onion tart and then had a lamb special. I thought I might finish with a plate of cheese but instead chose to have an almond pastry. My female server was friendly and competent and other servers came by to refill water glass, whisk away finished dishes or replenish utensils. Quite reasonably price and I look forward to a return visit some day--perhaps for shellfish or steak frites.

Recommend.

I dream of Balthazar... – This is my favorite restaurant in NYC. I actually miss it when I'm not there! Fantastic food, great service, fun location!

dont go there – if you think that this crowed noisy tourist trap with such a poor menu ressembles to any Parisian bistro you are highly mistaken. I live in Paris and I found that the only french was the extremely rude supervisor Stephanie who explained that a 45 min delay is normal because we had an appetizer; We left without eating the rest of our meal.

INCREDIBLE – I pass-by this restaurant almost everyday while walking to work and it's always packed with ppl outside smoking cigs...the food + frenzy crowd makes this place a hot spot!
