This was my first time at this restaurant , having heard so many wonderful things about it and chef Eric Ripert. I was not disappointed. The attention to detail made even the simplest of offerings spectacular. the service was impeccable. I will return.

“Perfection”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

As many times as I have eaten at Le Bernardin, over the years, it has always been perfection. it is impossible to single out one dish over another because all are perfectly prepared, presented and served. This is an experience worth saving for and is worth its cost. Fish is enshrined here in a wide variety of creative and delicious ways. The ambiance is sophisticated and comfortable. The wait staff are informed and well trained to anticipate your every wish. It is perfection!

“First time in Le Bernardin, certainly not the last!”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Coming from Israel we booked for the attractive priced lunch a few weeks in advance and so we found ourselves sitting in a magic bubble right in the center of New York. I can write on the three courses my wife and I had but it will do no justice to the food unless you really taste it. A wonderful Jamet white from the Northern Rhone Valley went so beautifully with the fish and sea fruit and the desserts were excellent as well. The service - attentive and extremely polite. Don't miss!

“Great place for sea food!”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

Le Bernardin lives up to its reputation. Difficult for dinner reservations - its popular, but we have enjoyed a leisurely lunch. Food preparation is way, way above average - excellent. This restaurant has excellent, knowledgeable serving staff. Definitely not to miss.
