We had been wanting to eat here, and our big fans of Eric Ripert! There are three different entrances for his establishments so it gets a little confusing. There is a very simple lounge and bar upon entry. We were here for lunch and since it was at 1:30pm we got great seats at the back of the room facing... More

If you are looking for an extraordinary tasting experience and ready to get your mind blown with extract bite after bite make a reservation at Le Bernardin in NYC. Set priced for 3 to 4 course tasting menu options starts around $200 per person. You will be presented with many Set priced meal options. I suggest La Bernardin speciality salmon... More

We sat in lounge and had their 3- course city harvest menu. This included 2 choices in each category along with delicious baked in house breads.With our friends, we shared a bottle of gruner veltiner, rather than going the wine by the glass route. Definitely worth the tariff to try a meal at one of the city's finest tables. Even... More

So good we had to double check there wasn't one in London. We went for my 30th in January 2017 and we could not fault a thing. The four course menu was sensational and the service was impeccable. Definitely the best restaurant I have dined in by far. Please, bring one out in London!!

I'm afraid that I didn't enjoy this lunch that much. My starter was delicious truffle seafood pasta and was packed with seafood. I had the monkfish for my main and I must say I found it to be totally over cooked. However my fiancé had the halibut and he said it was absolutely delicious so maybe I didn't chose that... More

Went for my birthday with close friends. From the second you walk in you feel taking care of by an amazing team. A quick drink at the bar before heading to the dining room was the right way to gather everybody. Chef tasting menu is a no brainer. Service and food was just impeccable. Eric came to say hi. Our...

I went to Le Bernardin on 21th of december in 2016. We have chosen for Le Bernardin Tasting menu (7 course $ 180,- p.p.) Michelin gives this restaurant 3 stars and as you may know, this restaurant is to be found in various "the best restaurants of the world" lists. Therefore we had high expectations. A side note; my last... More

Well worth the insanity of booking at 00:01 on the first day of the month, when all the executive assistants in the world log on to book (though certain hotels concierges can sometimes help) Anyway, having been here a dozen or so times before the new(ish) redesign, it's great to report that the room, service, food and all-around vibe is...

The restaurant has been so successful since its creation, it probably doesn't need my review. But I had such a perfect experience at Le Bernardin I feel I have to talk about it. I am a food lover, and I have been lucky enough to enjoy many meals in three Michelin stars restaurants, especially in France. As I was in... 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.
