La Boite en Bois

Located in a brownstone in the heart of the Upper West Side, La Boite en Bois has been a favorite among diners for 30 years. With its rustic ambiance, it feels as though you are in a bistro in the French countryside. In close proximity to Lincoln Center, we offer a pre-theater menu. Serving classics from Escargot to Salmon to Roasted Duck to Mussels, you will be delighted with our extensive selections. We serve lunch everyday, with a variety of salads, panini, and classic French dishes, such as Croque Monsieur, Seafood Crepes and Onion Soup. We also offer a prix-fixe lunch menu from Monday to Friday. Come Saturday and Sunday for our Brunch, and enjoy Eggs Benedict or Pain Perdu (French Toast). At La Boite en Bois, our attentive and well-trained staff will be sure to provide you with a memorable experience.

"Great spot! Especially before theater at Lincoln Center. The escargot were wonderful as was the monkfish, salmon, and pepper steak. The duck breast was slightly overcooked.
We had some knowledgeable help on the wine choice as well."

"Visited here for the second time, both with my sister from Canada. She was thrilled when we arrived. The food was fantastic, she had the lamb stew, I had the roasted cod. Service is excellent with an intimate ambience. Will certainly return"

"This was our second visit to the restaurant, which has great location near Lincoln Center. It is very small, very French, down some stairs from street level. Tables are almost touching, they are so close. If you mind cramped quarters, don’t go. If you don’t mind listening to your neighboring table, do go. The food is very good. We were there before a performance at Lincoln Center and were offered a pre-theater menu of 3 courses for $49. My husband started with leeks vinaigrette, and then he had the entrecote with cracked peppercorns in cognac sauce, served with crispy matchstick potatoes. All of it was very good. I had their salad du jour, a lovely fresh salad. My main course was calf’s liver with bacon and pearl onions. I ordered this because the people at the table next to ours recommended it, and it was very good. For dessert we had a fruit cup and the sorbets. All excellent. We ordered wine by the glass without seeing the wine list. Mine was a sauvignon blanc from the Loire valley and my husband had a red from Bordeaux. Good choices. Service could have been friendlier. Allow time. My reading was that there were many regular guests, and why not, it is a miracle of a French kitchen in this tiny spot."

"Boite en Bois is a very reliable French bistro, with well-executed French classics and a good menu. At lunch there is something for everyone; I like their salmon and their excellent salads. The service is friendly and attentive, and the recently redone decor is pleasant and cozy. A great oasis after or before the movies or cultural event at Lincoln Square."

"This was my third visit. The food is wonderful, though I find the service uneven. On my last visit, we were the only ones left in the restaurant after brunch and couldn't find our waiter for the check. Having said that, on my other visits, the service has been attentive and friendly. The atmosphere is very European which includes tight seating. But I love that! It feels like a little bit of France on the Upper West Side."

"Boite en Bois is the best neighborhood bistro in the Lincoln Center neighborhood. That being said, it's gotten a little on the expensive side ($49 for a 3 course "pre-theater" meal). They are mindful that everyone there before 7 is going to something at Lincoln Center and they do an admirable job getting you out in time. A little too admirable in our case. We arrived on time at 5:45 to avoid being rushed and we were served our 1st course and main course, all by 6:15, more than a little rushed. Diner-like service. We will go back but you need to tell them not to do this to you."

"I was a bit taken back by the small space, but it was lovely and intimate and the food was great. The mushroom omelet was excellent as were the burgers; and altho a teeny tiny bar, my lemon drop martini was very good. Because it is small, if it's crowded it can be a bit distracting."

"Quite simple food . Nothing really exciting. Fresh salad. The Monk fish taste was not any different from the red snapper. The steak was OK. The price is high for what you get. You pay for the location not the food."

"From the moment we walked in the door for our 5:45pm reservation we felt welcomed by the staff and by the feel of the room. Service was quite good and the only negative that I experienced was with my entrée. I ordered the duck special and was told by a fellow diner that she "loved their duck". I found it to be somewhat tough and without the wonderful crunch that I love. My husband enjoyed his dinner and I will definitely give them a second try."

"The pre theater menu was not great and food was pathetic. You cannot choose from the dinner menu before 7:30.
Not recommended although the location near Met opera is great.

"We went on a Friday evening and before 7:30 there is only a $49 prix fixe menu. I would have preferred to see the ala carte menu, but was told it was not available. Still, the food was excellent and the cocktails large. It is a small and quaint restaurant."

"La Boite en Bois is a neighborhood favorite for a leisurely dinner out with friends, to enjoy fine food and be able to have conversation. It is a pleasure. My favorite dish is the seafood crepe."
