Le Bernardin is absolutely magnificent. Be prepared to be delighted and wowed with the food, the wine and the service. The dining room is impeccable as well as the service. This is truly what a 3-star Michelin restaurant should feel like. It is not at all pretentious nor stuffy. That is, the service is impeccable. You are treated extremely well... More

Still ranked one of the best restaurants in New York for a reason. Impeccable service, and over the top willingness to accommodate. We had a dining companion who could not eat gluten, so they modified all of her dishes just for her. They even brought out a group birthday dessert that was not made with gluten so she could partake.... More

Our firends picked this seafood Restaurant to celebrate birthday, however they could only get 5.30pm seating. My first Impression when we walked into the Restaurant was 'huge' which I didn't expect, however after spending 10 days in US, most Restaurants are huge. The seatings were spacious. The Service was excellent, we were well looked after by Masa who took time... More

I believe this was the best meal I've ever had. Expensive but worth every penny. If you love seafood and appreciate beautiful presentation and delicate flavors, this is a must try.

From the moment we arrived, we felt we were treated like royalty. The door was opened for us and we were greeted so warmly. The dining room, which we understand was updated not too long ago, provided us a table that had both privacy and a great overview of the space. The service was impeccable, attentive, yet never intrusive ---... More

I was treated to dinner here by my cousin & her husband to celebrate my birthday. The meal rates up there as one of the best I've ever experienced in a restaurant ... anywhere.

I went there for lunch with my wife and my daughter. The atmosphere was somewhat formal but we were warmly welcomed at the door. The seating was comfortable as you would expect at a restaurant of this caliber. The service was very attentive. We ate the fixed menu that they serve at lunch. Every one enjoyed his choice of plates.... More
