Per Se Ratings and Reviews
Had a fantastic experience at Per Se. Of course very pricey but it delivers. The tasting menu is extensive and so well thought out and ever bite is unique and delicious. The pastry chef is extremely talented as you get about 8 different small desserts and every one a bit more tasty than the one before. The food, venue and view is wonderful but what really makes Per Se stand out over all the other 5 star restaurants out there is the service. Everyone was attentive and friendly. We will absolutely be back to Per Se again.
We went to Per Se on a Friday night. We had the chef's menu. The tapioca with caviar was outstanding. The lobster, the grouper and the duck were really good.
All the desserts were tasty and different: the chocolate with pepper was my favorite, My husband really liked the banana bread ice cream.
Obviously, the service was memorable, they’re constantly take careful of us.
the food is too salty , it doesn't worth the money at all.
compared with the other two michelin 3 stars restaurant(Le Bernardin & Jean George) I've tried, Per Se has the worst food taste. I am really disappointed.
the dessert part is the worst experience ever, it didn't look pretty, and the flavour is so strange, i never tasted such a bad michelin dessert.
Don't we pay almost $3000 just for a 3 stars reputation?
So i will never back come and eat again.
Let’s first start with service being amazing, down to the menu being customized. Everyone was so friendly. The dishes were good but not amazing, maybe it was my mistake, but at the price point it should be amazing. However it might have been just tonight’s menu since they are changing it daily...others may have a different experience. I just felt I’ve paid far less for a chefs tasting menu that was damn near perfect - this felt over rated and tourist trapish.
Per Se is excellent, top notch. Each course is excellent, from the most creative and delicious amuse bouche I’ve ever had to the overwhelming (but delicious) array of “assorted desserts.” Most notably, the service is absolutely impeccable—the staff caters to every need and, while very professional, do not come off as stuffy and do not take themselves or the haute dining experience you’re enjoying too seriously. Per Se is without a doubt a once in a lifetime dining experience—unless you are fortunate enough to go there more than once.
This was the perfect place for my 50th birthday celebration. We flew in from Chicago for the weekend and felt like we were treated like king and queen basically. Asked for a hot fois Gras substitute (from their usual cold fois gras) and boy did they deliver the most amazing fois Gras dish ever! It’s true the flavors is a bit on the salty side for my taste but it didn’t take away from the perfectly execution of every dish and ingredient. By the end of the meal, we both felt like it was even good value considering service was included in the price! Highly recommend for a romantic and special occasion!
I can't overstate how tremendous of an experience this was. The restaurant is small, only ~20 or so tables, but the space is voluminous yet quiet so you nearly feel as the experience is all your own. The staff at every level are consummate professionals and take great care of you. The food was elevated to an art form, in some cases literally. We found ourselves anxious to dive in to every course, but hesitant to ruin the visual expression in front of us. The prix fixe, nine course menu changes often, so what we had may not be relevant the next time. That said, the black truffle tagliatelle was flawless. After selecting the truffle from a wooden box, the server shaved so much wafer-thin goodness on top of the pasta, it was hidden entirely. And the Wagyu filet was literally the finest preparation of meat I've ever had. You'll leave well satisfied, but not overstuffed. Just right. Lastly, the wine list was extensive and impressive with a wide range of values, not surprisingly skewed heavily toward French. Bouchon is one floor below, so grab some pastry on your way out.
Easily top 5 culinary experience of my life, and possibly #1.
Some dishes were phenomenal while one or two fell short of expectations or appeared to be fillers in a 9 course menu. I would have preferred fewer courses comprised of just the sensational dishes. Even though the cost per person included the service fee it was a bit overpriced and the wine tasting was hugely over priced. I enjoyed the one time experience but would prefer to return to places such as Grenouille and Le Bernardin.
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.
