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.”

This restaurant is fabulous. We sat in the formal dining room for lunch, and the experience was divine. The caviar decadent the tar tar was the best I've had, I've sampled a few before. The red snapper refreshing and the scallops are absolutely a benchmark. The staff is welcoming yet professional to a robotic degree. I reserve the highest acclaim for Le Bernardin.

This was the most crowded Michelin star restaurant I've ever been to and I feel the ambiance left something to be desired. It was very dark and almost gloomy inside. I chose the Chef's menu and the food was great, not amazing, in my honest opinion. I guess I built it up so much more in my head. The service though was severely lacking, dishes for me and my husband arrived at different times and the staff seemed unfocused and inconsistent. I personally witnessed the staff being berated two different times by the manager just a few steps away from where I was seated. In addition, I saw two servers start laughing and making jokes, when this woman who was dressed (maybe a bit overdressed) in a gown, walked by. I enjoyed my experience at Chef's Table much more.

We went there for lunch. No reservation and sit at the lounge area. Everyone there is super nice and welcoming to us. I tried almost every single bread that they offered: the resin and walnut one is the best, my friend kept asking for it. They even asked you to get more bread to dip into the soup. Haha... We tried their harvest menu, they change this menu weekly, so every week it’s different. I like both of the main courses, very tender and delicious and not fishy at all. That is not easy to achieve. My appetizer: the slightly seared tuna is sauced with Cantonese style fish soy sauce. That’s innovative, but I’m not sure I’m a fan of it. The tuna still tasted good tho.
