    Wines by the glass were superb. Service was very good. Peeky Toe crab salad was sublime. The risotto was the best I have ever had in the US, and maybe the world! Expensive, but worth it.

    Enjoyed a couple glasses of dry white with the polenta, sea scallops, and the roasted chicken. They were very nice and pushed us through in 40 min in order to make the Opera at 8 on a Friday

    You can’t go wrong with anything here. Absolutely the best dining experience I’ve had and that Michelin Star is extremely well deserved. Service was impeccable, food was out of this world.

    Enjoy Dani's incredible creations in a casual setting. Generally french dishes like Brussels sprouts and duck breast. Try apple cider!!!

    Home to my famous Sea Bass en Paupiette! Executive Chef Aaron Bludorn makes wonderful seasonal food, when I go I like to indulge in the flavorful pastas!

    Cafe Boulud’s tasting ($95 for six courses) was creatively conceived all the way through, starting with a trio of chilled, pitchperfect summer soups. ★★★★ Read more

    great sunday brunch pre-fixe. appetizer: order smoked salmon, skip yogurt and soup. entree: cant go wrong but crab benedict is a winner.

    Fabulous upscale French restaurant,the ambiance is one of elegance and is not as relaxed as the younger crowd would hope.Portions are small & the prices are high it's what you'd expect on the UES!

    The best food served outdoors in the city, although sitting under a scaffold might not be your cup of thé. But it's civilized enough to enjoy chef Gavin Kaysen’s globe-trotting, modern-French menu. Read more

    great sunday brunch deal. order the smoked salmon (avoid yogurt) for appetizer and you cant go wrong with the entree.

    A great place to splurge on brunch in the UES. Get the $39 2 course prix-fixe, it's worth it. We recommend the Crepes Suzette and the scrambled eggs with butter poached lobster.

    Only two/three course meals on Sunday brunch! Egg benedict is mouth watering and their desert sections are beyond whatever expectations. Plus their complementary Madeline!

    Excellent upscale French restaurant from the Daniel Boulud team. For a more casual meal with drinks, try Bar Pleiades next door.

    Enjoy a Thanksgiving menu carefully crafted by a James Beard Award winning chef with options like a heritage farm turkey with ciabatta stuffing, cranberry marmalade cipollini onions & sage infused jus

    Risotto Balls, Squash Soup, Duck Breast, Duo of Beef and very knowledgeable sommeliers on staff. One of my top five choices in the New York area.

    You can’t go wrong, from crisped salmon or fontina+truffle arancini to celery root agnolotti or pan-seared duck breast. – Green Guide Editor

    An excellent brunch at Daniel Boulud's restaurant includes the Maine Peekytoe Crab Benedict and any of the desserts on the menu.

    Try the Hanger Steak and Eggs for a hearty brunch. Their hanger steak is not at all tough (like most) and is creamy, flavorful and moist - cooked to perfection.

    Definitely an older crowd, however the food is top notch. Their risotto balls are the most delicious and savory amuse-bouche around. Try the new hotel bar for post dinner drinks.

    This is where Andrew Carmellini got his start. The food is still sublime although it is a little on the fancy side. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    The omelette they have is yummy 😋 French toast is good. But the place in general is a bit old need redesign and more sunlight to enter the place .

    Try the Amuse Bouche - It's my impression that amuse bouches are made from the stuff that the chef is trying to get rid off!

    Spaghetti Nero is the nest thing on the menu: hands down! And this is easily the best dessert menu in NYC. Save room!

    Yeah. The crowd is lame. Bring the weird card and get loose. The staff appreciates it. I love love love the food here. It tastes like the heartland for me.

    The crab Benedict was very good. However the service at breakfast on a Friday was miserable. I expected more from a DB joint.

    Get the beef Wellington or duck rather than the fish. Worth the $$$.

    The variety of wines is good, the crowd is a little older, the ambient is nice, but too much expectation for the food, who was very normal.
