A restaurant experience to remember. Le Bernadin is definitely an address for culinary refinement and excellent service. We were impressed by the warm welcome and professional service. Mr. Ben Chekroun, the restaurant manager, was so galant. He was a great host and introduced perfectly the restaurant and its history complemented with an exciting tour of the house. The Warm Lobster... More

My wife and I booked a table last week at this great restaurant. Due to its reputation, and even if we booked with two months in advance, we were only able to secure a table at 10:00 pm. Their 4 course menu is highly recommended! The alternatives you had to choose from (2 appetizers, 1 entree and 1 dessert) were... More

This has been on my list for years and a good friend and I went for lunch. All that I imagined it to be, it was. From the start we were greeted warmly by the captain and shown to our table. The staff was on point to even the smallest detail. We opted for the 3 course prix-fixe lunch and... More

Lunch was very good, except that the sole ($24 supplement to the $85 prix fix lunch) was overcooked. Our lunch for two was $450, with 3 glasses of white wine and 2 glasses of dessert wine, which seemed reasonable.

Everything at Le Bernardin is simply wonderful. It's a NYC Institution. You can not go wrong with this place. It is "Fine Dining" at its best. The food is exquisite and worth every penny. It's a dining experience.

The staff were very welcoming and the noise in the dining room was subdued. The raw oysters to start were superb. Of course this is a famous fish restaurant, the main courses involved lots of flavor and texture combinations. The soup around my fish (merluza) was the best part. I had a bite of a friend's pasta with lobster, which... More

Fantastic dinner. Everything both my wife and I ordered was spot on and delicious. It is truly rare to have such an amazing dining experience from the food to the service in the short amount of time we had in order to make our show. Well done!

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.
