Rather then Pre-show quick dinner, we opted savoring a lingering fine lunch. Wait staff hovers over you insuring your dining experience is perfection. My first course was signature dish of Black Fish, caviar (fine quality) with Chardonnay butter sauce which was delicate and delicious. My husband had truffled seafood, yummy. My main course was Halibut with almonds served with coconut... More

Went for lunch as we could not get in for dinner. The seafood pasta with truffle paired with the Austrian Chardonnay was exceptional. Service is superb, especially at first part of the meal, gets a bit sloppy at the end. We did tasting menu with wine pairing. Suggest taking photo of menu as you only have a glance at pairings...

Amazing three Michelin star experience. The best was the blackened snapper and white fish/waygu beef. The ice cream ending was just perfect. One of my favorite fine dining experience for sure!

The main dining hall is very elegantly decorated yet has a contemporary feel that is almost laid-back. Careful attention is made to lighting, from the moment you walk in until you are seated which encourages a warm atmosphere. We ordered the tasting menu, and every dish was beautifully plated and tasted great. You could tell that the chef took some... More

Another over-hyped, pretentious, waaaaaaaaaay over-priced smugster faux-urbanista maggot-swarm. Staff distracted and caught-up in posing their self-importance. If you MUST go there, eat first. Their portions are for bulimic runway models. Just an awful experience. Left before we were finished. Never again.

We went for the chefs tasting with wine paring- it was fantastic. Yes its expensive, but for this occasion it was so worth it. The staff was fab and very attentive,... More

2nd visit for lunch. Can't say enough about everything-ambiance, table, table service, food, cocktails, wine ,etc. I am a seasoned fine diner. Everything about Le Bernadin is outstanding. We were treated superbly by everyone and had a most enjoyable 3 hour lunch. Best Dover sole ever. Deserts were also amazing. The wine list was very accomodating at every price level.... More

The experience if dinning at Le Bernadin ranks it among the elite restaurants in the US. We were looking for a place to celebrate an anniversary. As with many elite restaurants, Le Bernadin is themed to appeal to all of your senses. The menu is primarily seafood but in a French style. Highlight items for us were seafood truffle pasta... More

I surprised my husband with a trip to NYC for his 40th birthday and we went to Le Bernardin on his birthday for dinner. We did the Chef's choice 8 course dinner with wine pairing and it was the most amazing meal we have ever had. Definitely heavy on seafood, which was perfect for us, each course seemed to be... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
