Go. Le Bernardin is the gold standard for seafood. Try to overlook the inferior service. I hope to return again, if only for their seafood.

I'm not a big foodie, but this was on my "Bucket List" for a long time and it was worth every bit. The service and food are both spectacular. If you have a chance, make the trip.

My wife and I tried to count the number of times we have had dinner here over the years. The best we could come up with is about 15. We enjoy getting dressed up for a great dinner. My wife has gotten really good at reservations, and we have eaten in the lounge three times without them. Once Eric Rupert... More

This is our second dining experience at La Bernardin and unlike our first time we chose the chefs tasting menu on this most recent visit. After having an amazing meal here in June we thought it would be difficult to surpass our initial experience but we were wrong. If I could give 6 stars I would to this restaurant. The... More

Le Bernardin: Being a seafood fiend, Le Bernardin has alway been in my purview. Having been to many Michelin Star restaurants, I had some preconceived ideas of what Le Bernardin would be like and should be like, holding three coveted Michelin Stars. My expectations for the food were exceeded, yet my hopes for soigné service were far from met. Eric... More

The tasting menu and wine pairing at Le Bernadin is a bucket list experience and us worth every penny. It was the best seafood we have had on the planet. My wife is a pescetarian, and I cannot imagine a more perfect special meal for fish enthusiasts. Effortless service and perfect wine pairings from a team of consummate professionals in... More

Clearly booking one of the top 30 restaurants in the world is not going to be cheap but you don't have to sell your car to enjoy the best dining you can imagine. We did a lunch time 3 course meal for $85 dollars plus a couple of bottles of Chablis and it cost us $600 (including 15% tip). This... More

My daughter and I stayed in the lounge for our lunch at La Bernardin. The service was warm and attentive from the moment we set foot in the restaurant. Even though we didn't have access to the full menu, there were no complaints about what we were served. The food, no surprise there, was amazing. The football shaped bluefin tuna... 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.
