I own a restaurant in North Carolina. I love going to a restaurant and sit back and watch the staff as they go about taking care of their customers.

Delicious lunch featuring various shellfish. I enjoyed several varieties of oysters, and the razor clams were quite good. Udeniable freshness. Fine choices if you are a fan of caviar too.

My son and daughter in law were married recently in one of the private rooms at Le Bernardin and the food, service and ambience truly lived up to its reputation. The quality of the food was every bit as amazing as a dinner for 2 in their dining room, another way in which I've enjoyed meals in this "Temple of... More

We had a great time here! The service was excellent and the food was YUM! Do make reservations in advance though as we tried pretty late and couldn't get the time that we wanted! We loved it here and would definitely recommend.

We are foodies and Le Bernardin was incredible. This is not for the "large portion, Olive Garden" varietal of person. Each dish was painstakingly crafted and presented like art. The yellowtail was the best I have ever eaten. The Monkfish was really good but could have backed off on the mushrooms a bit. We had a great Sancere that the... More

I was not impressed with this restaurant to say the least. Food was not inspiring if not simply tasteless. Service is pushy from the beginning (Waiter asking us to order after 3 min) till the end (girl at the jacket place asking for a tip). A disappointment and a waste of money.

My friend has eaten here at one of the best experiences ever and wanted to share it with me this time. We have rated at some of finest in the world. We had the Le Bernardin tasting menu with wine pairing. Scallop was tasteless as was a later fish course. Other dishes were fantastic as I would expect. Wine pairings... More

This restaurant is world class. I have dined at many supposedly great restaurants and have been disappointed by some of them. There really is a reason why you have to book four weeks in advance to get a table.

I was so excited to go Le Bernadin. Ripert is one of my heroes, I cook a lot and I bought all this books. I was there with the family for Spring break. The meal overall was good but not up to the standards of Ripert and Three Michelin Stars restaurants. Some of the dishes are beyond good, the kind... 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.
