Critic Reviews

The New York Times star star star star Critic's Pick 03/16/05

[Le Bernardin] eschews high drama, both in the dining room, which has all the sex appeal of a first-class airport lounge, and in the dishes, many of which are paradigms of subtlety. - Frank Bruni

New York Magazine star star star star star Critic's Pick  

The city is full of ornate restaurants, but none of them manages to exude the glamour and class of Manhattan the way this one does, without any overweening glitz. - Adam Platt

Not just a meal but a primer in the respect for ingredients and the execution of restaurant service. The tasting menu offers a step by step progression to total gastronomic satisfaction. The "haute cuisine" really triggers the memory associated with comfort food and that is really a humbling experience but one that we will be eternally grateful for.

This one time premier dining place has been overtaken by food wanttobes, who are less demanding and willing to accept poorer preparations and poor service.

Despite all of the hype, unmemorable.
