I'm confused how Le Bernardin is a. a three star restaurant and b. gets very good reviews. Our lunch prix-fixe experience certainly was far from a three star one. Last three star we ate at was Epicure in Paris, which is beyond a doubt among the best in the world and is in a wholly different league. Great things at... More

This was a bucket list restaurant for me and it DID NOT DISAPPOINT! So delicious and elegant. Every mouthful was a joy. The staff is incredible and really makes the meal special. I would recommend this to anyone. Everything I tasted was memorable.

We went here for the seafood. I had seafood pasta, lobster and banana desserts. All of my dishes are the best seafood I ever had. It's worth to visit and enjoy the meal. Highly recommend.

My partner and I came here on a recent trip to New York and enjoyed the chef's tasting menu. This was a lovely experience from the start. I informed the waiter that I didn't enjoy fennel, a purée served with the langoustine course, and they allowed me to switch this course with the seafood truffle pasta - this ended up... More

Le Bernardin was on our list of must go to restaurants and it was everything and more! The food was spectacular. We did the Chef's Tasting and it was amazing. The pairings with the food were spot on, they complimented the food and vice versa. It wasn't stuffy or pretentious (we were a little worried it might be) We had... More

We called 9:02 on the first day of the month but could only get 5:30 to 8:00 slot. Oh well. For our friends from Seattle it was a late lunch. But when your there, you are the King and Queen. We all agreed on the 7 course tasting menu and it was the best it's ever been. For example; the... More

`My boy Eric knows his sea animal food cookery. Expensive and wild and kind of French. If you are afraid of food, go to Arthur Treachers instead.

We were very excited to dine here recently for my birthday. It is supposed to be one of the best restaurants in the world, after all! We came for dinner and chose from the 4 course set menu - this turned out to be more than enough food for us and we thought was good value ($150 per person) for... More

There are many foodies like myself who travel the world seeking the ultimate experiences in places like Osteria Francescana, Can Roca, Noma, Central, Gaston etc.etc. In New York, “the” place for years has been Le Bernardin – more than just food, it embodies the best of ambience and atmosphere, service, food and wine. It is not one element that sets... 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.
