“amazing food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Stunning restaurant and stunning food. Its not cheap but compared to other 3 michelin starred restaurants its good value. The service is fantastic, we even got a complimentary dersert that said congratulations on it as it was the last night of our honeymoon. My husbang actually had a tear in his eye when he tasted the waggu beef. He said its the best steak he has ever had and hes had quite a few!!

“beyond expectations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

It is definitely one of the best restaurants I'd ever been. Both meal and service were well beyond the best expectations.

“A very special restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

I will never forget the generosity of Daniel. First met him many years ago when he was younger (as we all were) and it was so obvious that he was a chef of immense talent and creativity.
On a later trip I wrote and said my wife and I were having a special anniversary and we had friends from Australia with us who were similarly celebrating a major anniversary.
Daniel prepared a special degustation meal that showed his exceptional talent supported by a very professional team and it was a night that is etched in our memories forever.
We constantly talk about it and I think New York is fortunate to have a chef of such extraordinary talent.

“Good but not Excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Le Bernardin has set a new standard of food quality and service. I was somehow expecting the same if not even more from Daniel.

I have asked to be given a cozy table with a great view, and I did this quite well in advance. Instead we have been sitted just in the middle of the restaurant, which felt a bit like I would be on stage.

Then also the waiter would bring the wine without knowing from which ptovince of Italy it is coming. A bit strange taking into account Daniel's reputation.

However all in all it was good. Still there are many other places to discover in NYC.
