Impeccable service and too-tier ingredients. A bit fussy, and certainly more satisfying food can be had for far less in NYC.

The experiencia begins with the entrance. Walking through the corridor with a great sight of Central Park. The staff’s service is great, not only form their kindness, but for the knowledge and understanding of the cuisine. Every plate is perfectly presented and the ingredients well selected. In summary, a memorable lunch.

This was an amazing dining experience. The team at Per Se works very hard and were quite knowledgeable about every aspect of the meal. We enjoyed the tasting and pairing, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Thank you to the Maitre D and all that the kitchen does to bring smiles at the table with the wonderful food creations.

Came here for my father's birthday lunch. Service was excellent in addition to the cuisine. My family had a wonderful time especially my father, who even walked away with a personalized menu signed by the chef himself. Big thumbs up to the staff for making it a memorable occasion!

40th Birthday! It was great. Very private even though you were in a room with other people. I can not say enough amazing things about the service... outstanding. The food was very good but I was hoping to have my mind blown for the price. The vegetarian pasta dish was the best of the night, and the breads were out of this world. Also the coffee was spot on. The meat was cooked perfectly.

We were at per se to celebrate a birthday. We had an exceptional tasting menu. The kitchen was willing to alter one course to make it just what we wanted. The staff was friendly and made our evening really special. The room, view, china and beautiful flower arrangements add to the specialness. Though it is an expensive night out we enjoyed every minute!

Everything we had was amazing, but th caviar dish was unreal! So buttery and creamy and delicious. The wine pairing was on point with every single dish. Our waiter made us feel like we were friends by the end of dinner. While we weee there, it was raining and cold outside. Sitting by the fireplace made it so cozy and romantic. This was a truly magical night and I would highly recommend it!

Always a treat to come back to Per Se. Outstanding food, great wines and impeccable service. Fine-dining at its best. Unfortunately, they couldn’t get any truffle that day. However, that also shows that Per Se is only accepting best-in-class products. Dessert is always the highlight. A must for friends of fine dining.

Last minute wonderful tasting dinner celebration for my wife’s birthday. Matthew and team we’re relaxed and attentive. Food was off the charts as we shared veggie, standard and extra charge truffle tagliatelle, wagyu, foie gras, and caviar tastings. All items were extraordinary creations of balances and contrasts. A crisp delicate white burgundy and a sultry 2009 cabernet complemented the meal. Hazelnut cake and custom assortment exploded with delicious rich sweetness. We departed totally satisfied and happy without feeling heavy.

Disappointed to say the least —

The experience was no doubt excellent. The food was great, service was great and the physical space was great but for $900 with no booze, it was not an experience I’d recommend since other similarly priced places offer magical experiences for the same cost.

The tipping point for me for the $100 up-sell for a 100 day dry aged rib eye that turned out to be a 3-bite serving. That serving, for that cost was just petty especially since it was by no means remarkable.

So it was good for sure but neither my partner nor I would consider returning and we were both disappointed that we didn’t catch the place in its prime.

両親の結婚記念日に今NYCで一番人気といわれるPer Seを予約しました。事前確認の電話のときに、どんな記念日か、何かサポートできることはあるか聞かれました。当日、“Happy Anniversary ○○and○○”と書かれたメニューが用意されており、嬉しかったです。スタッフもそれぞれお祝いの言葉をかけてくれました。帰りにはクッキー、チョコレート、その日のメニューがもらえました。ドレスコードは、スーツやドレスですが、パリでこのクラスのフレンチで求められるほどの厳しさはありませんでした。メニューの中で選択する部分がありますが、相談にも丁寧に乗ってくれます。わたしたちは家族4人で来店したので、いろんなものを頼んでシェアしました。シェアする旨を伝えたら、あらかじめシェアして出せるプレートはシェアして出してくれました。味は、塩味がかなり強いです。塩味が強いことを覗けば、丁寧に調理されており、全体の構成も良かったと思います。ボトルワインとカクテルをいくつか注文して、1750$くらいでした。Per Seではチップはサービス料として含まれてますが、ほんの気持ちとして1800$支払いました。NY価格なところは否めませんが、贅沢な時間を過ごせました。

Absolutely loved Per Se. I have dined at both Alinea and French Laundry so I was expecting a similar experience and cuisine but they exceeded even those expectations. Excellent wait staff and ambiance as well. Each detail was perfect from the moment you walk in until the moment you leave....just fabulous. A new must each time I visit the city.

Just a bit disappointed that the servers didn't recognize that one of the party is left handed and kept leaving her utensils to the right of her. And she's been here previously and thought the portions this time were a lot smaller than 6 months ago (not sure how). And I have heard the same from other friends where they were so stuffed they couldn't eat the desserts but this time around we had more than enough room to enjoy the dessert. Noise level was also louder than I expected it would be with the design of the sitting area. We say right next to the stairs to go up to the elevated area and had two parties sit in the table right above to us. Both times their conversation overpowered our's.
