OpenTable Diner (Washington DC)
5.0  Dined on August 5, 2017

Le Bernardin is a wonderful and special dining experience. The atmosphere is tranquil and open. Wooden walls and ceilings are accented with large white flowers in tall vases and large mural size paintings of the ocean. The interior is not fussy or flashy. It's classic simplicity helps to accentuate what is most important here: the food. Eric Ripert has created a true dining experience. You do not rush in and out. You sit and explore a culinary vision. The tasting menus are worth the price and length of time to consume them. Do the Chef's menu. The Le Bernardin menu is great, but you will be given surprises with the Chef's.

Take your time and listen to each explanation from the staff. They care about the service and food more than you know. The seafood focused food is exceptional. The service is beyond attentive. The drinks are unique and hand crafted. The wine menu is top-notch, and if you do the pairing with the tasting menus, you cannot go wrong.

Now my second experience, I cannot stress how impressed I am with this establishment . I had my first dinner early in the day and most recent at an 11pm reservation after a Broadway show. Both times, I was given the same level of attentive professionalism that is often lacking in many restaurants. Take the time to get a reservation at Le Bernardin and spend a few hours - you won't regret it.

We went to the restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were treated beautifully by everyone. The food was excellent as was the service and the al the people who attended us. I am especially grateful to Mr. Tomislav Dzelalija who made every effort possible so that we could celebrate such an important date for us in this wonderful place. Thank you a lot.

One of the best dining experiences anywhere. Come here for seafood. The dishes were extremely creative and very delicious. Sommelier Aldo is one of the best I've encountered anywhere. Although it is an expensive restaurant, I felt it well worth the money and a great place to celebrate special occasions.

Lives up to its acclaim as one of the best restaurants in the world. I proposed to my girlfriend there! We each had the eight course tasting menu and wine pairing. It was truly exquisite. You will experience senses you didn't even know you had previously. The staff and service was professional and very courteous. I highly recommend Le Bernardin.
