No question that much of the food is beautifully cooked and presented, with throngs of servers on hand. But for me, the meal wasn't worth the price. Armed with our $200 gift certificate, we did not go crazy -- a prix fixe dinner of several courses, with only a half bottle of wine. The bill still came to about $400... More

Celebrated our anniversary with dinner at Le Bernadin. The service was impeccable, and the food was exquisite! Everything we tried from the menu was spectacular. Truly one of the finest dining experiences I've had. Chef Eric Ripert has put together an amazing menu of primarily seafood dishes. Portions were a nice size. Wait staff was extremely attentive. Nice atmosphere. Would... More

There's a reason why Le Bernardin is called the Mecca of seafood and it's not just because the offerings are inventive, delicious, beautiful and fresh. It's because its staff -- from the coat check person on up -- is so well-trained and attentive. No one describes Le Bernardin as inexpensive, but one must certainly feel the restaurant offers excellent value.... More

In my opinion this is one of the top, certainly for fish, restaurants in the US. On this occasion we ate at lunch and had the always outstanding prix fixe menu. The sommelier recommended a perfect mersault to accompany my skate--again one can always count on excellent advice on what to select from an exceptional wine list. And all served... More

The food, service, and atmosphere were all you could expect from this up-scale restaurant. We splurged on the Chef's 8 course tasting menu and each course was the perfect bite prepared to appeal to sight and taste with luxury ingredients and impeccable service.

We went to this restaurant for my husband's birthday and we could not have chosen better place. The food is beyond amazing (do not come here if you don't like seafood as they only have fish and seafood) and the service excellent. We had yellowfin tuna, foie gras on toasted baguette, fluke with wasabi-nori crisps, artichoke with vegetable risotto, white... More

Not sure why I took my 18 year old son as he couldn't drink any booze but we had a wonderful meal. It's very subdued there but in a nice way. There was the usual theatre along with the food and (in my case) wine explanations but none of that distracted from a superb meal that lived up to all... More

This restaurant is an excellent restaurant and the food is great. If you are one of those people that love to try fine dining restaurants this is a must try. We went to NYC for the Eagles concert and during our visit we try this place and it was great., So if you love fine dining visit this one

i came here for the fried chicken and it was absolutely amazing! the atmosphere is very authentic and Eric Ripert definitely out did himself this time. amazing! need some more of that dipping sauce that came with the wings. Can't wait to be back and feast with the amazing manischewitz, which was an amazing complement to the wings.

We were given a very nice table and the atmosphere is quiet and relaxing. The service is top notch and they certainly pay attention to every detail, including a separate little chair for my purse so it didn't have to sit on the floor. I started with the very fresh and delicious hamachi and the red snapper as an entree.... More
