Visited as a couple for dinner. Perhaps to its disadvantage, Le Bernardin had come to me strongly recommended by a few acquaintances... I was told this was probably the best in NY at the moment. Having eaten at almost every 3 star Michelin restaurant in NY (ex-Masa) this trip and many others, I can't say I strongly agree... but I... More

Le Bernardin certainly lives up to the hype. We had an 11.30 pm reservation which was all that was available that day, and I was a little afraid of dining so late at night. However, the menu was light and delicious and we left feeling satisfied but not stuffed. Dessert was no exciting however and the selection needs to be... More

The food was nice, the drinks were good. The experience is very classical and structured. The perfect location for a more special dinner out!

Made reservations 3 weeks in advance and they only had one opening 15 minutes before they closed the doors on a Saturday of Memorial weekend. This was my first ever 3 Michelin star restaurant, only been to single stars all over. Don't bother with Jean-Georges 3 Michelin star that was a sad experience that I wouldn't like to repeat. The...

This is the 3rd time we've been to Le Bernardin and it did not disappoint! Great service and wonderful, innovative, beautiful food. The preparation is so unique for some of the dishes yet there are the options for seafood classics. I love that it is a Prix Fixe menu and you get to choose 3 fish courses + dessert. Of... More

Le Bernardin This, I think will have been the most rewarding dining experience in my life, until the next time I travel to New York and eat at this wonderful restaurant again.

If you're a foodie, this is heaven. Everything about the service is first rate and the food is sublime. If you have a food allergy, pas de problem. Even the front desk's annoying habit of making you wait for your table has been fixed. Last night, we were guests at a dinner for 12 in one of the gorgeous private... More

I have been to many restaurant in the city, but dinner at Le Bernardin was the one of another category. Honestly, having in mind it is 3-Michellin star restaurant, I was especially curious about its ambiance. I have already experienced several places (not Michellin ranked) where I did not felt myself comfortable because of the...snobbish ambiance, but oh, Le Bernardin???... More

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.
