Prepare to dine on “a higher plane” at this “dazzling” Midtown “star” where Eric Ripert’s “world-class” tasting menus highlight “transcendent” French seafood, earning it No. 1 Food honors in NYC for the eighth year in a row; a “deep” wine list, “exemplary” staff and “soigné” surrounds further justify the “sky-high” tabs, so for a “dream-come-true” meal, this is “as good as it gets.”

I had the new vegetarian menu: it was as outstanding as the fish-based menu that is so reliability excellent. As usual, the service was so good and so deftly delivered that it was remarkable. I remain convinced, as I have been for 20 years, that this is the best restaurant in the US. Every single dish was excellent, four were transcendent. The eggplant was astoundingly delicate, it's sauce slightly strong to match the eggplant, and beautiful. The poached daikon were a revelation, tasting very meaty, the broth ethereal, the shaved raw mushroom fluttering in the rising steam from the broth. The wine pairing was relatively a bargain, too.

I went to Le Bernardin the day after my husband and I celebrated our 3rd anniversary at 11 Madison Park. It was a hard act to follow. But it honestly frightened me how well Le Bernardin did in matching Eleven Madison Park in quality and caliber. The food was just plain shockingly good. Everything on the tasting menu we chose was above reproach and flavor and execution. Not as off the wall creative as Eleven Madison Park but more classical in focus and superlative in execution. "Superlative" does not do justice to the achievements in the quality of the food here. Again, after Eleven Madison Park the day before, the food and Le Bernardin was frighteningly​ good. I was shocked at the highest quality of this is establishment. As well, the service was wonderful and the atmosphere was above reproach. They honored our continuing anniversary celebration as well as a number of dietary restrictions. Food and family make for the best memories and there are few places that I would choose to make those memories other than Le Bernardin.

I did the Le Bernardin tasting menu which was six courses. The complementary salmon spread that goes with the bread was a bit too fishy for me. But the entire tasting menu was divine. Service was stellar. And wine pairings were on point. As for atmosphere, it's a rather large restaurant so I didn't really get the intimate feel that I was hoping for. For reference, I went at lunch time midweek during the holiday season.
