We come here because of the ambiance and good food, but on our last couple of visits, especially last night, the service was uneven at best. Given the prices it’s just not acceptable.

The staff was lovely. Kevin was our waiter and we had a unique gentleman with us who had many questions about the food. Kevin was so sweet, patient and helpful. We had a wonderful dinner. The first time we went was Christmas 2019 and then the pandemic hit. I live in CT but it was always in my mind to go back and finally we did. This restaurant is great and I recommend it highly.

First visit - pleasant. Park Avenue was buzzing but Boucheire was a nicely calm. Was able to have conversation and hear each other. Nice ambience. Will return.

This place is good. The interior is pretty, the food is decent (they need to do a better job for vegetarians though), and the service was slow, but we eventually got a very nice waiter. It's really loud in there, I could barely hear my friend next to me speaking, so don't bring noise sensitive people there....

Slightly underwhelmed by the restaurant as it’s prices aren’t cheap. The food was okay but took a long time to come and the fries were cold. The service was slow and they didn’t really listen to our requests. We are indoors and it was actually pretty cold inside.

Service was very efficient and pleasant although it took a while to get drinks at first.
Everyone loved their food. The tables were far apart so you felt their was plenty of room to distance. Good place to have a celebratory dinner.

ordered coffee twice, never arrived. wait and bus staff seem inexperienced and overwhelmed, no doubt covid-related. hope to have a better experience next time, as it is worth another try for the ambience and quality of the food.

Food, service, ambience was all great. Reason why I only gave it 4 stars was because one steak order came out medium when medium rare was asked.

Fabulous! This is my favorite restaurant in the Gramercy/Union Square area. Everything is perfect - service, food, atmosphere, decor... A must! And I love the outdoor terrace in the sun in the afternoon. Highly recommend it!!!

I went to two Boucherie’s. West village for lunch earlier in week and union square specifically for the tomahawk steak for my son’s birthday. Both were awful.
West village: onion soup was like eating slightly sour mud. I couldn’t finish it. Bloody Mary was undrinkable and had to be sent back.
Union Square: tomahawk steak costs $165 and we got nothing but fat and a little raw meat. The amount of meat was equivalent to an 8 oz steak the rest was fat and bone. That’s the 48oz you pay for.! fat and bone. We asked for medium rare and The meat was raw. Burnt outside and raw inside. Waiter agreed it was very undercooked. Told him to cook it and he brought back the same fatty meat cooked but added some better meat as well. What we should have gotten in the first place. The sautéed spinach was bland and tasteless. A little garlic, salt and olive oil would have gone a long way. It was awful. Same with the mushrooms, bland and tasteless. Horrible experience, horrible food, price tag of almost $400!!!!! Not worth it and a big disappointment as I had researched for days to find a good tomahawk for my son’s birthday dinner. Left feeling hungry, angry and cheated not to mention very disappointed. Not one thing was good in this meal. Don’t waste your money.

The champagne, escargot, pate, and apple tatin were delicious! The duck confit was a tad salty, almost like cured. The salmon was wonderful. I would return to dine at Boucherie.

Feels like you are sitting at a cafe in Paris. We both got the steak frites and it was perfectly cooked. Crime brûlée for dessert. Food came out very quickly and our waiter was fantastic.

Hated, hated, hated it. Loud, slow (I mean slow) service, indifferent attitude. I guess I should say that some guests at our table liked the food. No one liked the place.
