Beautiful space, experienced wait staff, exceptional cuisine. The cocktail and wine menu are extensive. There is a room for private parties.

The room is understated elegance. The service is impeccable. And the food is sublime.

It’s difficult to get a reservation, and for good reason.

This is not an overrated restaurant. It’s the real deal.

The service like the service in the main dining area is quite impeccable. Decor is sleek and modern throughout. We shared a bunch of sharing plates and I suggest tasting all the caviar selection! Stunning!

This was our second time eating at Le Bernardin. We were in the private dining room for a function - it is pleasant, elegant, and lush.
The food was quite good, though two of the white fish courses lacked a bit of imagination - of the three courses, two of them had brown-colored sauces. The artichoke dish, though extremely artfully designed, lacked some flavor.
The desserts are phenomenal. The deconstructed apple pie was excellent.

Dinner at Le Bernardin was lovely and certainly an honor, as I have followed Chef Eric Ripert for sometime. My colleagues and I went for the four course tasting menu and it was fantastic! The plate selections were nice and diverse, including vegetarian options. And how could I forget to mention, the bread basket was to die for!

Service was friendly and attentive, with the surprise desserts being a wonderful touch and perfect end to a lovely evening. Although, you could tell a few servers were still training, due to a few plate and drink mix ups. Overall, I highly recommend a visit to Le Bernardin!
