I ate at Bouley recently and it had been a while since I had last been there. I think the service has gone downhill and the knowledge of the wait staff was poor. We did a tasting menu and the first three courses were rushed out to us. The wine pairings were only average and the wine was poured early and late.
The quality of the food and the plate presentation were almost perfect, as before the breads were mouthwatering, but I think the front of the house needs a bit of attention. I expect more at that restaurant.
