Truly top-class dining
By panagisv on 9/24/2008
I've had phenomenal dinners at Eleven Madison Park on 2 separate occasions recently. Both times the food was superb, the service excellent, the sommelier very knowledgeable and helpful and the overall dining experience amazing. Yes, it is quite a bit on the expensive side, but memorable dinners like the ones I had there are well worth it. Their brunch is also great and the daytime views of the park from their big windows are very relaxing! I can't wait to go back, this is one of the best restaurants in New York!
The Emperors New Clothes

Went for a milestone birthday and Illness survival Occasion. I love to cook and have worked in kitchens. The menu is very expensive and portions are microscopic.One woukd expect real quality, but the food was really mediocre and poorly prepared, to the point of being insulting. The relentless fawning of the staff coupled by the pretentious inadequate food made me feel like I was trapped in a Saturday Night Live Skit.The most satisfying part of the meal was the bread and butter.Shame on you DM!!

I had dinner with my friend and really had wonerful time. The food was great and etmosphere was excellent. also service was fantastict. Even if we paid a lot for dinner, but It is worth to visit at least once if you are really newyorkers.
A Model Restaurant

A masterful restaurateur, an ingenious young chef who will soon rule the city, and a highly professional staff make this restaurant as good as it gets in New York. Those who find the cathedral-like main space off-putting can find comfort in the low-ceilinged wing of the dining room. My three visits so far have all been delicious. Kudos to all.

I was very disappointed with this restaurant. The service staff was so inattentive to my party that I felt that we were all but abandoned. The food was mediocre, although the desserts were good. I really was expecting it to be good, and was very surprised that it wasn't.
best in Manhattan

All things considered, the best restaurant in Manhattan: terrific MeyerFare in beautiful setting with perfect service.
Raises the bar

Sumptuous and elegant comes to mind when you are seated in their cavernous dining room. It can stand toe to toe with Jean Georges anytime but with better service! Great for power lunching or romantic evenings, and it's no wonder why it's so popular.

Beautiful decor, friendly waiters and servers, but most importantly of all, excellent food. I ordered from their prixe fixe menu and it was superb! A nice salad of bitter greens and endive, a rich buttery cod en papillote. My favorite part, the splendid dessert of raspberry sorbet and berries are well executed. The sorbet was smooth and almost ice cream-like texture has a very nice tartness of the berries. A perfect lunch.
