Simply fabulous! Every time I visit Le Bernardin is a wonderful experience. The service, the food, the wine list and the atmosphere are magnificent. Not your run of the mill kind of restaurant. Sophisticated and pricy, worth every penny. A most visit when in NYC.

My wife and I had the Chef's tasting menu with wine pairing. It was a singular experience that we will never forget.

I enjoyed a wonderful lunch in the lounge. I had a 3 course meal that benefitted City Harvest. I started with a carrot soup with lobster, then had striped bass, and a meringue rhubarb dessert. The food and service were impeccable.
