On this same trip we ate at Eleven Madison Park. Le Bernardin surpassed that meal for sure. The meal was elegant with an emphasis on fresh seafood. The Chef's Tasting was spectacular with each course unique. The service was spot on - not overbearing but always present when you needed something. The courses flowed perfectly as did the wine pairings.... More

Logistics: If you're trying to reserve on OpenTable, generally only 5:30 and 10:00PM spots are available. For times in between, call a month ahead at 9AM to ensure best results. Jackets are required for gents. Food: Earning Zagat's #1 spot, 3 Michelin stars, and 4 stars from the NYT in conjunction and for multiple years in a row can only... More

Each and every time we have been it has been an exquisite experience. The locale is wonderful, the ambiance splendid, the service quite exceptional. And of course the food is quite the best seafood around. The dessert menu had changed since our last trip and was even more spectacular. Can't wait for the next trip. Very highly recommended

What can I say that has not been said? This is a longtime favorite restaurant for a reason. The service is terrific. The space glows. The food, impeccable. We had the Hamachi with Yuzu appetizer -- fantastic. The Tuna with Fois Gras was also delicious, though more delicate, less active on the palate. The salmon was perfection. I had it... More

I must start off by saying that this is probably the best meal that I have had in my life. The food is beyond marvelous. While I would have liked to dine in the larger dining room, the lounge was more intimate. The service is impeccable, but the food and the preparation are the highlight of the dining experience. It...

After the end of each course we tried to vote on the favorite item but it was difficult because everything was fabulous. I think for the first course the... More

Getting a reservation for dinner here is virtually impossible without either a connection or a LOT of advance notice. That said, you can get a seat in the very nice bar area without much trouble during the week...which is what I did. With the celebrity of Eric Rippert I wasn't sure if Le Bernardin had fallen into the over-hyped, over-priced... More

I don't even know where to start. I was able to sneak in on a canceled reservation for a Friday night. The service was one of the best I have seen. The clientele was a lite "old New York City" and it was of the few times I felt in a different world for a minute. We had Chef Ripert's... More
