Not only is the food fantastic, the manager, John, is extremely accommodating. We walked in one afternoon seeking a delicious, comfortable environment for a group coming over after a Lincoln Centre event later that evening. John TOTALLY took care of us, giving us the back of the restaurant on a quiet night, taking care to make sure the t's were... More

Superb cuisine. I had Dover sole. It arrived at the right temperature, flaky (but not dry) and delicious. A farro side dish was recommended by the waitress and was a perfect choice. The wine list was excellent, but not overly large. And the chocolate dessert - heaven itself.

Brunch before opera (which is across the street), expected upper west side formality which is fine but enjoyed, instead, a welcoming, professional staff who made the visit so enjoyable. Food very interesting. The dauraud is a fish dish our son had in Zanzibar;our daughter-in-law had the stew which was also spiced like the food from that trip. Daniel Boulud has... More

Excellent dinner, one of the best meals I have ever had. All three dishes were excellent: octupos salad with pureed almonds starter; scallops with seafood risotto main dish and frozen grapefruit dessert (hard to describe that one). Dining room is large but well spaced and we had easy conversations. Service was excellent with bread, water easily refilled. I took my... More

French chef and restaurateur Daniel Boulud has several restaurants in New York and in other US and international cities. Boulud Sud, located near Lincoln Center, is Mediterranean-themed dining in a bright, airy atmosphere. It sits beside Bar Boulud and the deli/market Épicerie Boulud, creating a Boulud block, if you will. Several of us went for lunch and service was attentive... More

The food is quite adequate, but portions are tiny. Try Boulud Bar nearby instead The decor is very pleasant and the seating is unusually loose for the Lincoln Center scene. I found most dishes on the bland side and the portions were small by any standard.

We were heading to the Nutcracker matinee on Christmas Eve and went to Boulud Sud at 11:00 AM for an early lunch before the 1:00 PM curtain. Reservations are a necessity. Very nice setting and modern decor. We shared an assortment of starters that included some salads, some hummus, flatbreads, some eggplant. Fun to experiment with different flavors. Our mains...
