Such authentic French food, it is scary!! We have been every time we visit NYC (about 5 times in the last 4 years). I recommend this place to anyone. It is worth the splurge. For appetizer, we always order the Onion Tart, entree- Steak Frittes are a must! and dessert- I usually ask for two. Would recommend trying two entrees... More

Balthazar has the feel and energy of a bistro. It's design is very chic and the workers there remind you of something out of a movie with the way they are dressed. They're very courteous and all the patrons seem to just be having a great time, which just adds to the atmosphere of the space. They seated me before... More

We visited the place during a weekday ad we were hanging around Soho. The good was good and service was excellent, but when the bill came we thought it was overpriced. Be aware especially if you go with children that you might pay quite more for what you get.

We've know this place for a number of years. It maintains its attractive and good food. Waiters were superb, as usual. The place is just beautiful. It is obviously crowded and noisy... but this is Manhattan!! A bit expensive but worth a try.

This restaurant has a very good reputation and it's totally justified. We went for both brunch and breakfast. (Not on the same day!) The ambiance is true French, it's bustling, noisy and energetic. The food is great. We had eggs and pancakes which were excellent. They also offer a bakery basket which should be compulsory. The serves are of a... More

This is one of New York's finest restaurants. The food and the service excellent. It's well known it's a convenient location and the tracks people from all over the world. The owner has started a number of interesting placesand was formally the manager at 1/5 Ave. which is where I met my wife. Go here you will love the place

I try to be really honest in my reviews, as I read a lot of reviews myself before booking hotels and restaurants. This place is amazing, with really great food. We've had some really poor brunch experiences in NY and some really good ones. We booked this through someone who lives in NY and they recommended it, so we didn't... More

This restaurant gave us a good French experience. The food and wine was good. I would recommend it for a good lunch. Not too formal.

Staying in SoHo

Neighbourhood Profile
SoHo
Once the artistic hub of New York City, SoHo (South of Houston) is now one of the premiere shopping destinations in the world. Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway teems with big-name stores and people during the day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to explore by foot. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district –majestic cast-iron architecture everywhere you look. What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city. The pretty streets of Nolita (North of Little Italy) offer a more sedate vibe, with plenty of tiny boutiques and hip restaurants to seek out.
