They had a little bit of trouble accommodating my gluten allergy ( I mean - how hard is it to buy a bottle of Tamari instead of Soy Sauce?) However, once we found a substitution, the lunch was excellent. They brought us salmon salad starter that was perfection. Lunch flowed flawlessly and the service was impeccable.

The experience was lovely and the staff/service excellent but to be frank was very surprised by the quality of the dishes. None were memorable and felt course after course was just waiting for the big moment. We had the degustation menu. The truffle pasta was actually excellent but the other courses I am afraid I found average in terms of... More

Simple decor , modern, yet reminiscent of the ocean. Terrific fresh seafood prepared expertly. One of the best, if not the best, service staff I have ever witnessed. They changed the butter three times just so it was fresh. Excellent different breads and the butter just perfect to spread. Prix fixe lunch was three courses and you had many choices... More

Simply the finest service I have ever had in a restaurant. Impeccable. The food ... nice but not breathtaking. Did the tasting menu. Found the wine course very uninspiring. A once in a lifetime thing.

Le Bernardin exceeded all my expectations. From the moment you enter the restaurant, you feel completely taken care of. The service here is absolutely impeccable. There is no attitude nor fussing; just extremely warm and friendly people making sure you have a wonderful time. Sarah, one of the sommeliers, guided us through an extensive champagne list to make sure we... More

My wife and I both had the Le Bernardin tasting menu for lunch--it was a perfect meal (and wine!). We love food/wine and had very high expectations--which were exceeded. Bravo! The seafood truffle pasta was the most amazing dish we have ever had. It was perfectly paired with a dry Tokaji (stunning match). The Black bass "surf & turf" was... More

A restaurant that has been in business for so long must be doing something right and after our visit I can understand why it remains one of NYC’s famous dining institutions. Everybody knows Le Bernardin does seafood and if you love seafood it is almost impossible not to have a satisfying meal here. We chose the Chef’s Tasting menu as... More

We had the prix fixe lunch and although there weren't any vegetarian main courses on the menu, they were accommodating and made an off-menu pasta that was not only delicious but also a huge portion! I couldn't finish it, which is pretty unusual for me. I would also like to comment on the dress code for women since I didn't... 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.
