We had dinner here in June 2015 that was truly world-class. They did an ‘Eggs Benedict’ with caviar that was immediately inducted into the memorable dish hall of fame (we enjoyed it a second time at Next in Chicago in 2017 as part of their...‘World’s 50 Best’ menu). Incredible. Carrot tartare, asparagus, and lobster prepared as the French would with a thick cream sauce were all extraordinary. Veal fat butter served with the bread course was heavenly. Service was excellent. When we returned in November 2019, the restaurant seemed to have lost a bit of its spark. Service was average and food was good but not particularly memorable. Disappointing given the high expectations and price - perhaps just an off night.More

Amazing experience and great staff. I came here as part of my wedding proposal and the planning and execution from the staff was phenomenal. I had the pleasure of having had EMP dreamweavers help me create and deliver one of the most important days and...I am forever grateful. Food was brilliant with amazing balance of flavor and colorful. Wine selection is top notch. Atmosphere is pleasant. The staff is marvelous. Highly recommended and it will always be on my top list of places to try in New York.More

Our recent dinner has become an annual tradition celebrating a birthday and wedding anniversary. The eight-course tasting wine-pairing is an extravagant splurge and festive occasion. The young, energetic staff work efficiently to provide service that is satisfying and memorable. My only complaint, and it sounds...like a quibbling one, is that the meal, while varied, tasty, and luxurious is also minimalistic. In terms of value ($295) and expectations for world-class cuisine, in terms of the top 50 restaurants on Earth, I find Eleven Madison Park somewhat lacking in pizzazz and thrills. My meal had some tender lobster, a bit of black caviar, a few oysters, some trout, and a nice petite sliver of duck, but après tout, I asked, is that it? The dessert underwhelmed, and as in the past, there was no chocolate petit fours but only some excuses muttered unconvincingly. The more modest wine-pairing at $175 per person additional had some nice vineyards and complimented well but lacked depth. Compared with Marisawa of Tokyo or Pierre Gagnard’s Arpège of Paris, Eleven Madison Park’s Chef David Humm is simply not in the same league.More

From the very early moment till getting the bill, we can realize the reason behind the tree Michelin stars granted to this restaurant : the service provided by gentle waiters is flawless. They are skilled to be around without bothering you. I have tried the...tasting menu . It was quite good. I should say Daniel and Le Bernardin are still the best ones in my own New Yorker ranking, but 11 Madson Park is certainly as good as them. I liked much the pragmatic sommelier : he realized I had got scared with the New Yorker prices of my favorite Bordeaux´s ( way more expensive than the price in Paris). Then, he suggested a Napa´s "honest" alternative to replace it. It worked ! The reservation was made two months in advance . I have got surprised with the requirement of paying at the reservation moment . That´s unusual ! I do recommend the experience.More

My husband and I have had the privilege to dine at a fair amount of Michelin starred restaurants, and dinner at Eleven Madison Park was absolutely the best experience we have had. The ambiance was incredible, such a delightful space, but really and truly what...made EMP unforgettable were the service/people and the food. EMP's staff were both genuinely welcoming and attentive. They made us feel like part of the family while still providing the best service. Madison was amazing throughout the night, and ushered us from entree to entree seamlessly. Little details throughout the night showed her attention to detail; for example during conversation about her hometown we disclosed that our dog was from the same city, and at the end, she had a take home bin of treats for our pup. That was so thoughtful and really speaks to the remarkable service. Brady (the sommelier) was equally as incredible. He helped my husband pick the right bottle of wine for his palate and also made great recommendations for cocktails for me. He was kind enough to show us the cellar, which is incredible. Lisa took us to be back of the kitchen where one of the pastry chefs prepared a quick little dessert bite for us during the kitchen tour. It was a true pleasure seeing the "well oiled machine" that is the Staff at EMP working so seamlessly together while somehow managing to make us feel extra special. In regards to the food, every plate was perfectly balanced. The portions were generous, compared to other restaurants. The platings were elegant and not over done, the taste of the food was amazing. From start to finish it was a treat. Brandy and pretzels at the end of the night was a delightful surprise. It is obvious that a lot of thought has gone into the dining experience. Thank you EMP for an incredible night. Usually we try to experience new restaurants, but our night at EMP was so enjoyable, we will be sure to be backMore

I skipped this restaurant last year and went to Per Se instead. This time it was inevitable that I had to stop by and went back to Per Se for the 2nd time at a different night (see my review). Service here was ok. I...felt that I was rushed out of the restaurant. It took about 1.5hrs to finish my dinner which was the shortest I’ve ever dined at any fine dining restaurant, much less at a 3 Michelin starred restaurant. I was very disappointed ... I wanted to savor every bite with ease. My palate hasn’t fully enjoyed the last dish when another followed in minutes. I also had to keep asking for hot water and sliced of lemons. My waiter did NOT do a good job of checking back to see if I needed anything. Very unprofessional I must say! I’m a Michelin Star enthusiasts and been to several 3 Michelin stars all over the world completing the eight 3 Michelin stars in the Bay Area (see my profile and reviews). The highlight of my visit here was seeing the kitchen where the magic all occurred. I can’t think of any dish that made an impression. Even the caviar with cheesecake wasn’t impressive. I mainly ate the caviar; the cheesecake was unnecessary. Had dinner at Aquavit two nights before and their caviar was so good with a beautiful food presentation (see my pix/review).More

We had really high expectations given the ratings and accolades. Maybe we were expecting too much. I still give this place a 5 stars as the meal was phenomenal and the service was great. This restaurant setting is average and almost a little crowded for...a Michelin 3. This would not be a place for personal special occasions but great for corporate events or dinners.More

Every aspect of our experience lived up to expectations. Room is spacious and comfortable, the service and servers (of which there are many) was friendly and efficient and the pace was great. Even though we were there for almost 4 hours, we never felt neglected...or wondered when the next dish was coming. It was just a nice, relaxed pace. The food was also delicious. Every course was beautiful on the plate and also tasted great. We had requested to visit the kitchen and that was fun as well. Overall a great afternoon. Wonderful choice for a special occasion.More

This is definitely the best meal I have had in New York City so far. I loved every dish on the tasting menu - from the poached lobster, to the soy with truffles, and the pear sorbet. Not only were the ingredients fresh, the cooking...was done to perfection. Worthy of mention is the stewed veal which came with some roasted potatoes and bacon - its presentation was like flower with layers of petals and tasted delicious (too bad that I didn’t take any picture). They also have an extensive wine list with a decent selection of wines and cocktails - something not to be missed. Service was good. Attentive staff but not intrusive. Despite being a fine dining restaurant, we didn’t feel suffocatingly stiff - in fact we quite enjoyed our chilled long lunch there (some 2.5 hours). Would definitely go back when we next visit NYC.More

Best dining experience of my life ever! Every part including service, food, wine pairing, and atmosphere are beyond expectation. I asked to meet Cedric the Wine Director and actually he was off on that day but, eventually came back to have a chat with me....Max the Head Sommelier also showed us the wine cellar and kitchen! What a privilege!! Server Alessandro was brilliant too. Really we did not expect these at all. To create a WOW experience and to delight guests, no one else can do better than the Eleven Madison Park. 超棒的用餐體驗, 無論是服務, 菜色, 餐酒搭配和氣氛, 都無可挑剔. 餐廳的服務非常到位且溫暖, 甚至會極盡所能的滿足客人的特殊需求, 例如我在訂位時附註想跟葡萄酒總監Cedric 見面, 當晚他不在, 但是牠竟然敢回來跟我碰面! 這家餐廳對於製造客人驚喜, 無人能出其右.More

If we lived in NYC or even US but unfortunately we are “across the pond”. Good luck - but if you haven’t yet been and can go some other time, you should. Kind regards
