My husband and I visited for a late supper after seeing the hilarious Book of Mormon. We arrived at 10.15 to a pretty much full restaurant. From the moment we stepped through the door we experienced a level of service that we both agreed would be very hard to beat - ever! The food was sensational, but one would expect... More

We have tried a couple of times to get a table for dinner at this famous NY restaurant without any succsess. This time we managed to get a table for lunch. We had a tasting menu paired with a wine meny. Let's start with the conclusion. This is the best lunch I've ever had. From the foie gras coverd in... More

This was my big 45th birthday celebratory dinner in NYC whilst on holiday from Sydney... had been planning this for years and was very much looking forward to it...I was particularly enchanted by the story of Le Bernardin and of course the chance to experience 3 star food and service. Sadly it was a bit of a disappointing experience which... More

Been to a few 3 stars, and this was by far the worst, not a single dish stood out and "wowed" us. Service was ok, but really just that. Again nothing stood out. Jackets are required, and supplied, but don't ask to remove even if it's smouldering hot, because they will not allow you to. Went to Jean George the... More

One of the most fresh and tasty octopus ( with peruvian sauce) I ever had as well as precisely conceived association of foie gras with yellowfin tuna. Very original hamachi taste and a memorable blackbass with chestnut and truffle pot au feu. A must try in NYC. Go for lunch, much better price. If one small reproach, the service a... More

I'm not going to add anything unique to the reviews that have been already posted about Le Bernardin. The food is outstanding, the wine prices are high, and the wait staff wants to get your orders into the kitchen as soon as possible. The sommelier was very knowledgeable about the wines, and we enjoyed a lovely bottle of white Burgundy.... More

According to its website, "Le Bernardin was named after an order of monks who liked to eat and drink and a song about the monks that Gabriel Le Coze, Maguy’s and Gilbert’s father, kept singing to them." Now it is my turn to sing about the glories of this wonderful sea food restaurant. The food is simple, elegant, delicious ...... More

GREAT lunch for anniversary. They were perfect in service, freshness of products, presentation and attention to details such as entertaining partner when gone to toilets. During that conversation they managed to discovered we were on an anniversary trip and the maître d hotel (don't remember his name but he was from Ecuador) surprised us with a very beautiful additional dessert...
