Tried Bouley for my first wedding anniversary as a chowhound / food lover / whatever you want to label it as, and was amazingly disappointed. The service was rushed (wine glasses taken away when not empty, courses brought out within 5 minutes of each other) and the food was mediocre, with one dish served cold when it was meant to be hot. We went for the tasting menu option and it felt like the dishes had been sitting on a counter for half an hour at least ... Decor not my style which is fair enough, i just expected way more from such a "highly rated" place. I would like to think i know and love good food and good places ... Was this just a bad experience? Would love to know.
