Add visiting Le Bernardin to your bucket list! Went for lunch - Prefix - 3 courses - can't find adequate adjectives to describe. Excellent, superb, fantastic are simply not sufficient. Include service within the scope of my lack of proper words. Both were just as we expected. Bernardin is expensive. The pre-fix lunch including tax and tip was over $200.... More

If you like fish Le Bernadin is incredible. Every dish was beautifully prepared and presented. Service was everything you would expect of a top restaurant. The deserts were so good we had to have seconds! Highly recommended.

Had an early dinner here in April 2015 for my birthday. Food was excellent, service was spotty. Attention to detail was lacking for a restaurant of this caliber. My menu was left on the table until around the third course I had to ask a server to take it away. We had the tasting menu and it was delicious. The... More

We ate here for my birthday, book early to ensure a seating time. Fortunately we were in NYC for 11 days, but even then availability was few and far between , but we had a sensational meal. We had the 4 course tasting menu which we could not fault. The staff were very attentive, continuously ensuring your water was topped... More

Chefs tasting menu was absolutely amazing. Seven courses of heaven creating favor emotion from your palette to your brain. Starting off the courses is the Scallop-sea urchin then onto the King fish caviar...Chef Eric Ripert's incredible use of flavors one course after the next. The ambiance and decor is first class. Dealing with the service staff was nothing short of... More

we had been here a year or two ago and finally got back- TOP shelf- the food, the service, the wine all amazing. if I had any complaint it is that the seating is such that you do not get much privacy but that can be overlooked for the experience

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
