Met a friend in the Lounge of Le Bernadin yesterday. Had very high expectations and was sorely disappointed by the food. The service and ambiance were great but the food was sorely lacking. First of all the lounge menu has no vegetarian options. Anyway, I ordered the Lobster en brioche. The lobster was tasty but over cooked and did not seem fresh. In addition, the brioche was stale and dry as toast.Not to mention the portion was miniscule and the price exorbitant. The waiters were also a bit snooty. Overall just OK. Don't think I'll be going back.

If you're a foodie, this is heaven. Everything about the service is first rate and the food is sublime. If you have a food allergy, pas de problem. Even the front desk's annoying habit of making you wait for your table has been fixed. Last night, we were guests at a dinner for 12 in one of the gorgeous private rooms upstairs. Just spectacular.

Wonderful experience - I am very into French, but had hesitated on coming (only momentarily) as I am more meat than fish - but there was no lack of savory, and many dishes felt light and refreshing, while still able to feel filling and complete. The courses evolved from raw to cooked, which was an adventure in dining and constantly kept me engaged. The ambiance was a bit loud (there is a large dining room), but it still kept a cozy, intimate feel, which each table having its own delineated space. The entire wait staff was on point, it operated as a seamless machine, and everyone was warm and inviting. I opted for the Bernardin tasting menu with wine pairings - it was a splurge, and ultimately I thought, well worth it - even given high expectations, I left satisfied and pleasantly surprised by the experience. To start was a small sampling plate, which warmed the appetite, and prepared you for the meal. The bread is also worth mentioning, and I couldn't help going back for seconds (and maybe even thirds). Highlights for me included the preparation - raw plates, half cooked, and fully cooked added a new visual element and texture experience, and helped me to look at what I viewed as common fish (salmon, scallops, bass) in a whole new way, while also introducing new tastes. The sauces were extraordinary (I feel the mustard emulsion may have been even better than the crab, and the shiitake broth, and olive emulsion, also stood out - especially on how well the wine pairing helped to bring out complementary flavors). Dessert was masterfully executed with a sweet clementine sorbet, and a decadent hazelnut praline. The experience overall is something I will remember fondly, and one I would certainly recommend given the clear caveat of price, the necessity of booking well in advance, and the deceptively heavy cream used in most French cooking. The notoriety is well deserved.

Had an early dinner here in April 2015. Food was excellent, service was spotty. Attention to detail was lacking for a restaurant of this caliber. My menu was left on the table until around the third course I had to ask a server to take it away. We had the tasting menu and it was delicious. The seafood fresh and the flavors well composed. Per se and Eleven Madison Park have a way of making diners feel special and welcomed with personalized menus which you can take home along with goodie bags of chocolate or granola. Le bernadin was lacking in that area. All in all a good meal but next time I think I will go the a la carte route.

This is my favorite seafood restaurant, if not favorite restaurant in NYC. I used to not be a big fan of seafood. I was more into meat but this place changed my perception of seafood. The seafood here is never slimy or too fishy tasting. Every plate I've had here is amazing. I came here for my birthday and they really took care of me here. The staff are so nice and they gave me extra desserts since it was my birthday. Just get the chef's tasting. You're here anyways so try as many dishes as possible.
