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!

Spending five hundred dollars on a meal is something I rarely do, but when it happens I expect a superb experience. Between missed cues for service (it took over a half hour to bring me a drink I ordered) and hit or miss courses, I left the restaurant regretting the trip. I cannot in good faith recommend this restaurant to... More

If you enjoy seafood without the fancy frills of many fine dining establishments, Le Bernardin is an absolute must on your bucket list. Unlike many similarly rated fine dining restaurants, Le Bernardin is not a small and intimate setting seeking to craft the perfect dining experience for each and every visitor. Rather, it is a large and bustling restaurant that... 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.
