The food was amazing, the lobster avocado salad was perfection, and the duck might have been the best duck I’ve had at any Michelin Star restaurant

Super! Fantastic! Delicious! Two Stars were granted absolutely right. Food and presentation of food are awesome! Scallops, cod with caviar, foie gras, home made bread with cheese, mash potato, octopus - everything is tasty and delicious. Do not forget to order desert - Lychie sorbet with foam and Japanese green fruit - amazing. During dinner we observed kitchen processes , it's really a show. We received complimentary from chief to our anniversary - mango ice cream and it was also awesome.

Estupendo Restaurant!! La cena fue en la barra y la atención magnifica, tienen varios menús de degustación o puedes elaborar tu propio menú ya que en la carta hay la opción de platos en pequeñas porciones. La elaboración, la calidad de los platos y las presentaciones son magnificas, la carta de vino esta muy bien aunque la mayoría de las opciones son bastantes costosas con muy pocos vinos de valor intermedio. Muy recomendable para una cena en pareja.

This was no doubt the best mealI have ever had, every bite was incredibly delicious. The food was so beautifully presented it was almost a crime to eat it, but the taste matched the presentation. The waitstaff was friendly, attentive and engaging, yet unobtrusive. A special thank you to the bartender who whipped up an alcohol free cocktail that was unique and delicious. If you get a chance to dine here just be prepared for the price. We expected it to be expensive, but it I am still in a mild state of shock over the bill. I will dream of revisiting in a few years for my next big occasion, or if I finally win the lottery.

The tasting menu honoring Joel Robuchon could not have been better.
From start to finish, absolutely delicious!
The hamachi, pumpkin gnocchi with white truffle shaving, and the cod with caviar where stand-outs. Fantastic flavors, perfectly balanced. The staff was amazing; attentive but not intrusive. The wine pairings were wonderful. My second favorite meal ever.....#1 being Joël Robuchon in Las Vegas.

Everything was good- the food, the options, the service.
However, for a $175 + per person (excl. wine) I did not find something really extraordinary (except for the deserts - they were incredible).
Highly recommend the duck and the chocolate souffle.

Went with great expectations. Ultimately disappointed. Food was good, but not what I would expect from a restaurant of this caliber. The service was the only thing that was above average. Ambiance is very clubby with loud music. Ordered the tasting menu. I didn’t find any dish to be outstanding, mostly average to slightly above average.

We went for our 30th wedding anniversary because we had been several times to the Paris location and it is our absolute favorite. The New York location is at least as great, if not better in some ways! The atmosphere is, like the one in Paris, sophisticated yet comfortable and the bar seating allows a view to the amazing kitchen and a great dialogue with the very friendly and knowledgeable staff. The food is beyond comparison. We opted for a series of small plates so that we could sample a lot. Our order, combined with the amuse-bouche courses and the extra gifts from the kitchen allowed us to try almost everything! The Hamache, scallops and duck were the best we'd ever had. Bar none. The vegetable dishes were magic, with flavors I cannot even describe. Our champagne recommendation was spot on and our server Lisa was incredibly nice, even inviting us into the kitchen to meet chef and co. and take photos. Best evening and meal Ever. For a special occasion, this is IT.

We had a very memorable experience. From the beginning to end, service was top notch, attentive, and not overdone. They educated us on their menu items, best wine pairings, and engaged in making sure we were having the best time possible. Chef Alain came out to say hello and topped off a great night. We can’t wait to be back.

One of the best meals in my life! My guest and I experienced the 8-course menu. In comparison with the 4-course menu and a la carte choices, it appeared to be their greatest hits. The flavor combinations were spot-on. No odd experiments or much that was too acidic. I have recently been disappointed with desserts at other restaurants offering tasting menus, but this one got it right: a chocolate dish pleasing to the palate and eye. The service was unobtrusive, and no one yanked our drinks or dishes prematurely. While seating was at the counter overlooking the kitchen, it felt removed; glass cases separated you from the server and another glass display set sat between the servers and the food prep. Lovely decor. Our evening was paced at 3:15 hours, which was a delightful amount of time to have with my guest. Others may have gone through in a shorter time frame. This is a must for foodies!!

No doubt tasty food, but boy oh boy, the portions are ridiculously small. Talk about a high margin business. Don't mind paying the price for good food and a nice dining experience, but the portion sizes/price was a bit hard to swallow.

PS: the bread was excellent and much needed!

great meal. I spent over $1,000 on tasting menu and wine pairing. when we sat down, the server offered us a glass of Champagne. Turns out that was $40 per glass. I was prepared to spend a lot, but felt taken advantage of when they sold me two glass of champagne for $80.

I mad a mistake booking for the following week and the restaurant was very accommodating and was able to sit us down. Thank you for not ruining my night out with my wife. I will surely be back for more.
