If you are in NYC for a few days you must try to have a meal at Le Bernardin. The service is impeccable and the food is truly outstanding. I will never forget the meal I had. DELICIOUS!

I was there on Oct 30 at 9pm in a party of seven people. My first impression of the restaurant is that the decor and ambiance is quite business-dinner-like, nothing special and quite loud.

Husband and I had dinner here the other night before a show. The food was ok. Not as flavorful as other similarly rated restaurants. The staff was so somber and unfriendly. The restaurant is very dark and the seating is uncomfortable. There are better choices.

We were extremely lucky to have a seating at 10 o'clock. Exquisite food, fine, professional,care taking staff, superb environment! Wonderful experience! When you have only one opportunity to visit a three stars restaurant, choose Le Bernardin: one of the best, if not the best, restaurant experience of my life!
