3 days later, and I am still thinking about the food. It was everything you would expect from a 3 Michelin star restaurant. We went for my birthday, and the menu had my name printed. I received a signed menu, along with special treats at the end of the dinner. I have been recommending Per Se to everyone!

The food was excellent, if not particularly creative. The Wagyu beef was out of this world.
Service was seriously disappointing, ie: I had to request the same glass of wine twice, and when it finally arrived, food sitting on the table, it was the wrong one. No apology, but rather an excuse that the wine was “probably married with something else”(!) was given. Seriously.
The waiter was a touch smug and casual bordering on unprofessional. A thousand dollar meal needs to be perfect. This was not. We have eaten at other 3 Michelin star restaurants and this one didn’t hold up.

We were delighted to be able to get a reservation at Per Se for dining on our wedding anniversary.
We arrived early with a view to having a pre-dinner celebratory drink but were told in an off hand manner that there was nowhere for us to sit and that there was another bar outside of the restaurant we could use so thought it could have been handled better. Since our last visit the bar area within Per Se has been turned into tables for dining so they have increased their covers.
When we did get in we still had to wait for our table and so sat at a high bar area. The tasting menu was great with a lot of choice and standard of the food was excellent again so we weren't disappointed. The staff were very professional and happy to chat - getting the balance on this is quite difficult in my opinion and after a rocky start they certainly succeeded.
This is a very special restaurant and although expensive a place for celebrations.

For me this is “destination” dinning. I go to NY often and it’s nice to experience the top restaurants once in a while. This was semi short notice so the only time available was for Lunch on Saturday. Everything about the restaurant was super outstanding, especially the service, which is becoming rated these days. Unfortunately we were next to a table, they’re not that close, of four that included a 12-13 year old boy. It’s not that children are bad, it’s the failed parenting strategies that have forgotten about the seldom seen and never heard theories of children in upscale public places. I wish they would have a grown up only policy.

This is a dining establishment beyond compare. Prepare to be pampered while you take in view of the NY skyline and relax in the glow of the fireplace. All waiters are graduates of a culinary school who will help you create the dining experience of a lifetime. 12 plates and an assortment of desserts are served to order at your leisure. The cuisine is original, and diverse with flavors that coax and tease the taste buds. The quality of ingredients is unrivaled; so much so that "Bread and Butter" is an entree - "A smoked Paprika 'Parker House Roll' served with Diane St Clair's Animal Farm Butter." Diane has 10 cows that she milks and hand churns the butter.

No detail is left to chance. All chairs that are not required are removed from the table (before you arrive) so as not to disturb the intimacy. There are as many servers as there are guests who move stealthily to present your next palate-stimulating tasting.

No matter your requirements (allergies, vegan, etc) Chef Keller and his staff will ensure that you literally have the meal of a lifetime.

We had easily one of the best meals we have ever had at Per Se. The tasting menu was incredibly well put together. Each course seemed to improve upon the one before it. The service was even better, with very attentive (but unintrusive) staff who took care to explain the dishes and get to know us throughout the dinner. The pace was prompt, without being rushed and worked through the menu in just about two hours. Capped off our experience with a kitchen tour and personal compliments to the chefs.

Can’t recommend Per Se enough!

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.

Outstanding personalized service combined with incredible food. We were treated like royalty throughout the meal all capped off at the end with a tour of the kitchen escorted by the maitre d’, who couldn’t be more friendly. Not just a meal but a memorable experience!

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.

Holy guacamole! Chef Keller clearly pays attention to detail as every dish is specially curated. This ain’t yo’ mommas cookin’! Grab your napkin and hold on to your britches because there ain’t no stopping when you’re on this food train.

Per Se was perfect. My wife, sister-in-law and I had dinner there at the end of a trip to NYC. It was a chilly evening and they put us next to the fireplace which was very cozy. The food was great. The service was impeccable. They were willing to accommodate changes to the menu if a particular item wasn't to our fancy. We were there for three and one half hours and it was among the most pleasurable dining experiences we have had. It is definitely a special occasion place. Go there when you aren't in a hurry and want to enjoy the best.

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.

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!
