Per Se Ratings and Reviews
I was sceptical about this place after reading the reviews, but surprisingly we enjoyed it a lot .Food was very good, ambience perfect, service good. I visited most of michlen restaurants in Paris and I love the fact that the dishes were salted exactly like in Paris- perfect. Size of portions- excellent to enjoy and not overeat. We plan to be back to try vegetarian menu.
Incredible restaurant and experience. Not for the financially challenged. Getting a bottle of champagne, a bottle of white, and a bottle of red and the straight-forward fixed price menu, you can expect to pay $600 a person. It was my 50th birthday and a splurge. I will always remember the food and the bill.
My husband and I have been wanting to check out Per Se for the longest time however we were both slightly underwhelmed. The food was excellent but there was not enough of it- especially for $340 a person. They fill you up with 7 different desserts at the end.
It was definitely worthwhile. Flavours were unconventional without trying too hard. Great progression of tastes through the menu. The venue is definitely upmarket but service was personal and atmosphere relaxed.
Extensive wine list but some reasonable choices at the lower end.
The slow cooked beef and wagyu very different styles as expected but both excellent.
We had a really lovely night
The food was excellent as always. However, there was a little less creativity and individual attention to each dish from an artistic standpoint. Half the fun of the restaurant is the presentation and the arrangements were made with a little less care and attention than previously. In addition, I would have preferred fewer dessert dishes and more attention to each plate.
We were greeted by every staff member with a warm welcome and a smile. Shown to a beautiful table over looking the park and presented a specially typed menu congratulating us on our recent engagement was a very beautiful touch.
The staff that looked after us were both very knowledgeable on all the food options and the techniques that go into making them. We chose the chefs tasting menu and we were floored with the amazing flavours, that were perfectly matched with all the components on the plate, well presented and the perfect sizing for each course. Just enough as to not fill up to early and we loved that the bread was served after a few courses so we didn't fill up on that first.
The duck was a highlight for me and well worth the supplement- I would have paid double that, my fiancé had the wagyu supplement for his main and was floored. He says the standard is set and it will take tough competition to even come close to overtaking this entire experience l.
The staff and their treatment of us literally left me with tears in my eyes and I could never recommend this place more. It was one of the most amazing experiences and I thank them so deeply for that!
I'm writing this review from heaven right now, because last night's dinner sent me there. Everything was absolutely perfect, from the service to the setting and the food. From the moment you walk through the door, everyone is extremely welcoming and kind. They were very accommodating to the person I was with, who doesn't eat seafood, and offered her different proteins for the two seafood dishes that were on the menu. I had the tasting of vegetables, which was absolutely amazing. I really recommend getting both menus so that you can share and taste every single dish - of course the menu changes daily but for us there were zero negatives. We visited for my birthday and they printed a birthday wish and my name on the menu! Afterwards the chef signed the menu and I got to take it home. We also got little stools each to put our bags on. Everything was so good - the beef was to die for, melted in your mouth and the potato agnolotti was just.. I can't even describe it. But honestly it's hard to choose a favorite when everything tastes the way it did. The desserts were amazing as well, they have different desserts for the chef's tasting and tasting of vegetables so again, recommend getting both menus if you don't mind sharing a little (or just keeping the veg option for yourself if you're not that big on meat). We were so full that we were offered to take the second round of desserts with us, which we of course did. I also got a little bag with more bonbons, caramel type things, macaroons, donuts, special Per Se birthday chocolate bars.. yes barS. Everyone was super kind and kept wishing me a happy birthday, from our server to other wait staff who changed the napkins, refilled the water, brought out the dishes and picked up the plates.. Just so many amazing things, I can go on and on and on. We don't drink alcohol so stuck to water, coke and tea, which was all free of charge. But you'll have to experience it for yourself. Go set your alarm clock and make that reservation!
It's unfair that Per Se exists. No other restaurant experience will ever compare. This was my second time going on a Silver Gift Experience and this time was even better than the first. The staff is so pleasant and courteous. They have pashminas to choose from if you get cold. And the food... I can't even begin to describe the array of flavors and the meticulous plating and the sheer amount of food I ate.
Per Se is PERfect.
The chefs tasting menu was overpriced for what you get. The food was ok...but several courses were bland and unimpressive. The service was great! The staff were very attentive and went out of their way to accommodate all requests.and really made the experience fun. They would be the only reason i would go back.
Hands down the most incredible dining experience we have ever had. The food itself was beautiful, imaginative, perfectly presented, and every bite was beyond delicious. The service was impeccable....friendly, precise, without flaw. Absolutely perfect. They knew we were on our honeymoon and we felt all the extra care they put into our meal. Superb, start to finish.
We celebrated my brother's 40th birthday at Per Se this past weekend. The table overlooked Columbus Circle which provided for a spectacular view. The food and service is second to none. The wait staff is extremely knowledgeable and courteous. Per Se is definitely an experience I will partake in again.
The ONLY problem of the night was too LOUD because of one large table of 8 people.
No respect of others who want a quiet evening to enjoy the chefs creation.
Like going to the museum to appreciate the art and you have people so loud around you and likes the moment
Pure 3 star excellence. From the food to the presentation and the service. My son and daughter were invited into the kitchen which is extremely rare to get a glimpse of this excellence. I just wish this restaurant was in a dedicated location as opposed to a mall at Columbus circle. They probably did this for the view of the park.
That said this was worth every penny, roughly $3k to experience a 3 out of 4 star Michelin !!
