It is quite refreshing to enter a restaurant in NYC and have it meet your expectations. Per se did exactly that. The staff made us feel comfortable from the beginning, there was nothing rushed. The view of central park was simple and beautiful. Now the food, memorable, had a range of flavors in every dish, and also thankfully left us full and happy.

Dining at Per Se is really beyond words. It's an experience where 12 or 13 delicious, delicate and melt in your mouth courses are presented in a huge variety of plates, bowls and vessels of all kinds by young men and women who seem to appreciate being a part of the experience with you. The fabulous three-hour treat was not stuffy but very fun. Taking a tour of the kitchen and wine cellar afterwards was a double treat!

With 3 Michelin Stars and already haven visited French Laundry, another Thomas Keller restaurant, I had high expectations for Per Se. And my expectations were met! Stunning, dramatic, yet classy ambience, spotless professional service, creative and delicious cuisine. Just a very special night and experience with friends.

Tyler the Maitre d' elevated our experience like no other restaurant we've ever been to. From helpful insider tips on other food NYC hangouts, to staying at the table for casual conversation, to a one-of-a-kind full tour of the kitchen, he was absolutely incredible. We loved every minute of our stay at Per Se and found it even better than its sister, French Laundry. All four of us would rate it as one of the best dining experiences we have ever had.

We celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary with a trip to New York and a degustation dinner at Per Se. Our expectations for the dinner were high going in and Per Se exceeded them. The food was phenomenal, the service was attentive and the whole occasion just truly memorable.

This was by far one of the most amazing dining experiences I have ever had. The food was just incredible; but, the service and the experience were amazing as well. Of particular note, was that we arrived with our 12 year old son and the restaurant staff from the front entrance and throughout the evening were so amazingly friendly and attentive to him as well as to us. It made for a truly wonderful dining experience that we will never forget.

Amazing everything which is not surprising for a Michelin 3 star restaurant but in terms of value I think the vegetarian/pescetarian menus should be priced as high/represent the same value as the standard tasting menu. However overall one of best meals I’ve ever had!

Our night at Per Se was the result of a gift from my in-laws for my partner's and my birthdays. Lucy us! It was beyond lovely. We were treated at every moment with a level of service and care that I've not experienced before. From the blubbly beverage we were greeted with...to the food of every course (I want to call out the vegetarian tasting as particularly unbelievable, in its creativity and deliciousness)...including the descriptions of each course...the wine selections....to the 10-course dessert experience that I could not believe was before us...to the special house-made chocolate hugs and kisses that said "happy anniversary!"...to our exit, which put a gift bag of treats to enjoy at home. It was a gorgeous and memorable evening that we will be talking about for years.

I’ve luckily been to many of the top-rated restaurants in the USA and Europe, almost always with a tiny edge of disappointment. My experience at PER SE reduced those memories to ashes. It was in all respects superb. As soon as my eye lit on some element of the decor, a staff member unobtrusively arrived to explain its floral composition, or its forest source, or Adam Tihany’s witty instructions etched into the lamp shade. Each course arrived on porcelain that seemed elegantly designed for that food presentation only. I ate the carnivores menu; my guest had the vegetarian. At the end of each course, we’d say “Best ever,” until the next arrived and they upped the ante. Not only the variety but the enchanting color combinations enthralled. In short: impeccable service, exciting food.

And here is another point: we were two women dining. I’ve often experienced inferior even condescending service at top restaurants from servers who prefer male clients. I noticed several women servers at PER SE. All servers were charming and none were unctuous.

It was lovely, a thoroughly happy satisfaction to all senses.

Expensive as hell and totally worth it !!! Completely justified all the hype and praise I have read over the years. Food was exceptional - exquisitely presented and delicious. Although the meal was a 9 course tasting menu we felt very comfortable at the end - satisfied but not stuffed. The dining room ambience was elegant and warm. Tables well spaced apart. Service was formal but extremely knowledgeable, and also friendly and personable - the ideal mix.
The wine list has massive markups but a broad and interesting selection - including a wide range of half bottles which is not so common. Per Se is everything a top flight restaurant should be - Bravo !

Impeccable experience.

The food is wonderful — for sure — and the service is literally impressive. Beside basic practices, Per Se prints birthday blessing on its menu the captain handwrites his greeting on it.

Would recommend the add-on of truffle and foie gras.

In a word - amazing. We had to try Per Se so we could compare it to Thomas Keller's other Michelin 3 Star restaurant The French Laundry. They are equal in every aspect. Per Se is a must visit experience for anyone in NYC who wants a truly memorable dining experience. The wine pairing was the perfect accompaniment to the exquisite culinary creations.

Warm friendly amazing service. It was my son’s birthday and they arranged to have his name on the menu which was presented to him at the end of the meal and signed by the chef. We had oysters and caviar, foie gras, poached chicken, a shrimp dish, sea bream, short rib and a tiny, but yummy, cheese course. The desserts were fabulous. They brought over a cake with a candle which was then sliced and served. Crepes Suzette, ice cream, donuts to dip into a coffee whipped cream confection. Chocolate truffles and more, but I just can’t remember Beautiful restaurant, great view. I highly recommend
