ReviewsEdit

A review in 2000 in which The New York Times gave it three stars said: "Cafe Boulud is sleek and easy, and the entire staff has been given permission to have fun. You never quite know what the menu will offer. Most days there are 30 or more dishes, and none are ordinary."[8]

In 2013, Zagat's gave it a food rating of 27, the third-highest rating in the East 70s.[9] One Zagat's reviewer called it: "A neighborhood bistro for billionaires."[7]
