My wife and enjoyed lunch at the famed Le Bernardin. The wait staff to patron ratio really is nearly one to one, and very professional. My oysters were perfect. We both had the sole, and, alas, it was slightly fishy--not enough to send back, but not Michelin three star quality. Mid 80's decor--very corporate but quite comfortable. So far, La... More

Le Bernadin is an extraordinary, beautiful French restaurant, that serves some of the most breathtaking seafood dishes in NYC or anywhere. The menu runs from crudo (much better than sushi) to perfectly prepared main courses, all revolving around the freshest and most delicious seafood cooked by a kitchen versed in the best French techniques. I enjoyed a 7 course tasting... More

Once we entered the restaurant it was like a personal event. Individual service, the perfect lunch, and we felt like we were special. I have never been to a 3 star Michelin restaurant and so glad this was our first experience.

This by far was my best restaurant experience in New York. If you like fish this is the place for you. The house was well designed and the staff was so wonderful and pleasing. The food spoke for itself and I was so happy to be in this restaurant. I gave the caviar tartare, seafood truffle pasta, halibut, and sorbet... More

Fantastic from start to finish. Everything from the bread to dessert was memorable and delicious. A very special night could not have been more enjoyable. It is difficult to get a reservation but after having one of the most enjoyable meals of my life, I can understand why. Every dish was prepared and presented perfectly. Well deserved 3 Michelin star... More

Greatest service with kindest and most professional staff I ever met. Food was amazing though I missed some "textured games". Thank you for the kind attention and the amazing tagliatelle. I tried the 7 plates dinning

They had a little bit of trouble accommodating my gluten allergy ( I mean - how hard is it to buy a bottle of Tamari instead of Soy Sauce?) However, once we found a substitution, the lunch was excellent. They brought us salmon salad starter that was perfection. Lunch flowed flawlessly and the service was impeccable.

The experience was lovely and the staff/service excellent but to be frank was very surprised by the quality of the dishes. None were memorable and felt course after course was just waiting for the big moment. We had the degustation menu. The truffle pasta was actually excellent but the other courses I am afraid I found average in terms of... More

Simple decor , modern, yet reminiscent of the ocean. Terrific fresh seafood prepared expertly. One of the best, if not the best, service staff I have ever witnessed. They changed the butter three times just so it was fresh. Excellent different breads and the butter just perfect to spread. Prix fixe lunch was three courses and you had many choices... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood 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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
