Expectations fully met and exceeded. Dishes were very innovative, artfully plated and of course delicious. Dessert was also wonderful with the only downside being the variety and quantity (which did not detract from quality) - i.e. Ensuring you don't leave without being stuffed!

I am so glad that I found this little gem. Fantastic food, great service and the guy who helped us was easy on the eyes. I had the beef/lamb gyro and the flavor was there. The house salad was well put together and the baklava was decent.

First of all the food was really good, 9 courses, wine was great. However the service wasn't anywhere near Michelin 3 star, or any star for that matter!!! I asked for the restroom, and I was told there wasn't ANY.... right.... Anyways, I asked this "blond" lady twice, and twice her response was "theres none here". And as I was about to turn to ask another employee of Per Se, she asked me if I was dinning here? I replied yes, and she showed me to the restroom, but she didn't even apologize for ANYTHING!!!!!!!!! HOW RUDE IS THAT!!!??? FOR A NO STAR LET ME TELL YOU!!!

This is one of the best restaurants in NYC. However, it will probably cost you an arm and a leg to eat here. I would never allow myself to come here on a regular basis but it's fine for special occasions. The tasting menu will take you 4 hours to finish and you will be beyond full. Don't forget about the multiple dessert courses as well. I actually liked the dessert courses more. If you're lucky, you can get a tour of the kitchen and talk to the head chef as well.

Dinner does not get better than this. Tasting menu changes daily. Unrivaled service. Truly amazing for a special occasion.

It truly was excellent - some of the dishes were incredible - oyster & pearls // risotto & truffle (2 times - once at the start & the 2nd time half way through) was outrageous - the service was on point

Yes, I know - I'm giving the illustrious Per Se four stars. No, I'm not insane. I've dined at my fair share of excellent restaurants, given the fact that I'm nearing 60 Michelin-starred restaurants in NYC. And I know I'm not alone in saying this: Per Se has not kept up with the times. Yes, the restaurant has maintained its 3 Michelin stars and its Relais & Chateaux designation. Yes, it is helmed by esteemed Thomas Keller. But it is nowhere near the best. From the tasting menu, I can say that several dishes were absolute standouts. The famed "Oysters and Pearls" cannot be missed. While the oysters were still too briny for my liking, the sabayon it was served atop of was mind-blowing; silky, creamy, savory, and strewn with a few tapioca pearls to add even more texture to each bite, it was perfectly paired with a generous spoonful of Sturgeon Caviar. The Yukon Gold Potato Risotto that I substituted for the Monkfish was a pleasant surprise as well. The potato was so finely diced down that it mimicked actual risotto kernels, the consistency further enhanced with aged parmesan and hazelnuts. Garnished with a few swirls of Tuscan Kale and a soft poached quail egg, it was a wonderfully decadent dish... and completely vegetarian. And the Elysian Fields Farm's Selle D'Agneau, a seemingly simple take on the saddle of lamb, was an homage to the simplicity of food; the lamb was perfectly cooked with a slight edge of gaminess, and complimented by a few roasted vegetables (artichokes, bell peppers, and sweet carrots) as well as a take on Bagna Càuda, the rich and garlic-heavy dip found in the Piedmont region. Unfortunately, not all dishes were quite as memorable. The salad of Charred Fuyu Persimmons was more appealing in presentation than in taste, despite the presence of Black Winter Truffles in the dish. The Sea Scallop, which was the largest scallop I have yet to see (and eat), was texturally monotonous as it was grilled instead of seared, but was served on a delicious bed of lentils. And the dessert course, comprised of multiple components, also left something to be desired. We were served a cake that came with all the garnishes, the chocolate spears and swirls, but would have been better complimented with a scoop of freshly made ice cream. I missed the lack of an actual "dessert"; something cold and refreshing, such as a panna cotta, a crème brûlée, or even a simple sampler of ice cream or sorbets. We were, however, presented with an expansive box filled with some of the most creative chocolate concoctions I have yet to find (green tea, rose, dulche de leche...) and a triple-tiered box of mignardises, filled with macarons, fudge, and chocolate truffles. The ones that we weren't able to finish were able neatly boxed up for us, and we given a small tin of cookies as a final gift from the restaurant. In hindsight, I can say that the ambiance was spectacular, the service was more than satisfactory, and the food, while good, wasn't great. Given the accolades and praises that Per Se has received over the years, I expected something a little more exciting, innovative, and memorable from our meal, especially given the hefty price tag (of several hundred dollars) that it comes with. Perhaps my expectations going in were too high, but I'm glad nonetheless that I'm able to cross one more place off my list.
