4th time dining here in the last year and while the food was outstanding, the same can not be said for our waiter this time. The rest of the staff was exceptional as we've been accustomed, but the waiter seemed rushed, robotic and moderately condescending, leaving us a little less excited about the experience and bill. It'll be harder to justify returning again any time soon.
Eleven Madison Park is a stellar restaurant in terms of food, wine list and service. My husband and I are both vegetarians and the team catered to our needs and made us feel very welcome. We can't wait to go back!
Exceptional experience - extremely creative courses
A definite must try
They called me on same morning as i did the reservation and told me there was no more lunch menu of usd 76 USD, and that they now only have one menu of 195 USD. As i told that I was not aware of that, and that I cannot afford this, they told me they would debit my credit card of USD 125 pp. So we went there. The experience was still great. But still did not appreciate the way of doing, as it is not mentioned on website.

Excellent food, creative without being excessively so, extremely well done. Outstanding service. It indeed deserves to be considered among the very best in the US. We took our pre-teen kids (foodies too) and they also loved it.
It was if my palate had died and woke up in heaven. The difficult thing was wondering, "What about tomorrow?" Can I venture back to the reality of normal food? Every tantalizing morsel made my senses sing. The experience was the most creative, inspiring, interactive, version of culinary art brought to this planet. I have traveled the world, and never saw such an insightful delivery of food. How could a restaurant so elegant, be able to provide such comfort, warmth and fun? It was a mind-expanding, thrilling night that I will never forget. My dining companions were my son and two other 19-year old Vassar students. The servers were respectful and pleasant to the youngest of patrons. It would be a mistake to miss this culinary magnificence.
If you can't get a reservation for dinner... by all means enjoy the same amazing menu and service at the lunch seating. This 3 star experience was truly outstanding in all ways.
Extravagant but wonderful tasting menu only in dining room. Can order appetizers and entrees at bar.
A restaurant that needs no introduction, Eleven Madison Park is the most inventive high-end dining experience I have ever had. I won't give any spoilers on the dishes but the taste and presentation were fantastic. We were served by a perfectly timed array of waitstaff that all knew exactly where we were in our 15 course meal. I would definitely recommend EMP for a special occasion.
Simply the best. The degree of service and inventiveness is hardly to be believed
