Perfect!

This restaurant is simply perfect. Service is seamless, food is fabulous and artistically beautiful. Cocktail and wine list is superb. I've been to several three star Michelin restaurants but this one takes the lead, it is culinary perfection at its best.

We hosted a dinner party for our son and some friends at Le Bernardin. The food was, of course, inventive, delicious and beautifully presented. The sommelier was particularly good. For the price, this is a very good deal. My only quibble, not enough to change the rating, was logistical. The pace of the meal felt off. We got only one... More

We had dinner while in New York (we could book a table one month earlier although only at 10pm) and the overall experience was almost perfect. Food was quite good and well-presented although some of the waiters were a bit intimidating. However, they clearly failed in the bread section as it was served cold??? Not even warm in a 3... More

The four of us went to celebrate. We had high expectations and they were met by the fine service and exceptional seafood. We chose the 7 course menu with wine pairings which was $300 per person after tip but it was worth it. We have eaten at other Michelin 3 Star restaurants and this was second best in the world.

The food was absolutely fantastic as well as the wine. It's expensive but not crazy prices like other 3 star michelin restaurants. I didn't like the hysteric perfect service which is way too formal for me.

Went here with my family and parents. The service, food and ambience are all top-notch. The best part of my visit is that while Le Bernardin is famous for its outworldly seafood, the most memorable part of my evening was the perfectly cooked Wagyu Beef. It simply melted in my mouth. That's how great this restaurant is.

Being in New York for the very first time, this was a restaurant I had been planning to visit long before my arrival. I went with a friend of mine for lunch and we both order the $80 three course set. Being a seafood restaurant, the quality of fish here is amazing. Whether it be raw or cooked, Le Bernadin... More

Friends from NY raved about this place as"the one and only" Staff condescending, food minimal and pricy. If you feel the need to impress people by saying you went there I guess it's worth it.

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.
