“Seafood is the Star”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Ever since reading Medium Raw, I wanted to dine here. The meal was a delectable yet seamless dinner from start to finish. We began at the bar and enjoyed cocktails. I'd drop by again just for my tequila based Zona Rosa. Others in our party started with a glass of rose recommended by the bartender which extended to two bottles over dinner.

Once we ordered, the ballet of service performed by the staff was perfect. Our dishes came and went in perfect choreography. I indulged in caviar, langoustine, and monkfish - each perfectly sauced/brothed and presented. However, the ice-cream I ordered for my fourth course was forgetable except for the white chocolate.

The combination of a somber atmosphere and quite outstanding food really made an impression. All dishes were simply superb, and the tuna became a favourite. Service was impeccable with attentive and helpful staff. There is little to say other than that Le Bernardin really holds its place as one of the foremost restaurants globally!

“Fish any day”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

We have often eaten at le Bernadin. It was completely remodeled last year, and is very attractive.
Our service was very good and attentive, we enjoyed out dinner
very much. My artichoke entree was outstanding. the me nu is in four parts, the first part was all raw fish, and they switched this for me to two of the second course without any problem.
