    310 menu with 3 glasses of wine ended up around $500. Exceptional service, but little 'wow' factors from the food. Love the beef, halibut and egg custard with white truffle oil. Ask for a kitchen tour

    Hailed by food critics ever since its doors opened, swanky Per Se is the brainchild of Thomas Keller, the only American chef to have been awarded three Michelin stars for two different restaurants. Read more

    Per Se is the meal by which all others are measured. Every aspect of this dining experience is the very best Also be sure to ask for a tour of the kitchen after your meal.

    The prix fixe menu is definitely the way to go, but if you want to order à la carte, that option is available in the salon. – Green Guide Editor

    Coming for lunch allows a choice of a 5 or 7-course tasting, and views of Columbus Circle in sunlight. The Oysters and Pearls continues to be their signature dish.

    You can't go wrong with anything here, but the Butter Poached Lobster is especially delicious. Insiders know that the salon offers the opportunity to order as few as one or two dishes à la carte.

    A 3 Michelin Star & World's Top 50 Best Restaurant (#11, 2013). Legendary Chef Thomas Keller's French Laundry counterpart. 2nd to none in service w/ a beautiful view and romantic ambience. Amazing!

    Whatever you eat at Per Se is worth whatever you have to pay. Try Chef Keller's legendary butter-poached lobster, and you'll be experiencing the best of New York.

    This place rivaled and then beat my experience at The Square in London. Gastronomic genus! Of course, as can be expected, this place is super posh and very spendy.

    Dinner will take over 3 hours but patience goes a long way. Favorites were the first course, oysters and pearls. The dessert - warm cinnamon donuts and coffee will give you the perfect buzz.

    Fantastic, always first class on all points. Chef Keller & team year after year put out amazing feats of gorgeous & delicious food, accompanied by impeccable service all confined within a grand room.

    Very deserving of three Michelin stars, Per Sebstands in a unique and elite league for authenticity with classic technique offered with each of the nine courses. Simply amazed by their staff

    Serving up the one of the best dining experiences in the world, Per Se is quite simply the best of the best. Make reservations a month in advance and expect a meal lasting multiple hours.

    Get the desserts, by pastry chef Elwyn Boyles, and savor every second of these delectable concoctions. The five-course tasting menu created by Boyles himself should be your prime consideration.

    Even if you don't like a food item, you may love how they prepare it here. I give them my allergy list in advance and then am not picky about what comes out. Always impressive. Please dress up!

    By far one of the best executed restaurants in NYC. From the food to the menu- everything is impeccably done. Take it all in and enjoy the ruby beet sorbet and asparagus tofu if it's on the menu

    The oyster and pearls is a true Thomas Keller classic with the "sea-xiest" mouthfeel. It is chic—briny, creamy, plump, and delicate. Read more

    The menus are unique daily, so if you're fortunate enough to experience Per Se on multiple occasions, you'll never have quite the same meal twice. Oh and that view of Central Park doesn't hurt either. Read more

    Many renowned culinary talents have tried to take New York, but none of them have hit as many right notes from the start as Thomas Keller, with his pitch-perfect urban counterpoint to French Laundry. Read more

    For those of you that cannot make the pilgrimage to French Laundry in Yountville, this culinary destination is worth the trip. Go big and order the 10 course with the wine pairing!

    The tasting menu is the way to go. They are very strict about the jacket policy so beware. I took mine off in the lobby due to the AC non working well and got glared at.

    For all that's said about Per Se, the quality of the cocktails and bartending is not mentioned enough. A perfect old fashioned is served in a weighty glass.

    Per Se takes great attention to detail from its menu selections and preparation to its décor design and staff. Not to mention the food is divine. -Lynda Erkiletian, Real Housewives of DC

    We visited in December and the view of snow falling on New York while being seated near the fireplace is truly unforgettable. The wine list presented on an iPad was a lovely touch.

    On weeknights, the Salon offers the whole magilla; the entire Per Se menu a la carte! They don’t take reservations so slide behind the blue doors and grab a seat. - Inspector

    Be surprised each single day ! The three Michelin stars Chef has never cooked the same dishes since the opening of the restaurant, 8 years ago ! A MUST in creative cuisine...

    delicious but not quite up there with other high end restaurants. Their menu changes daily and they even add personal touches so bonus points for that (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Ate at saloon part which offers the ala carte menu. Requested an excellent kitchen tour. Think other 3 Michelin star restaurants are better than Per Se though

    Yes, it may be one of the most expensive meals in the city, but you get what you pay for. The vegetarian tasting menu is no mere afterthought; this is some of the best cooking in the world.

    The restraunt is very close to my apartment. We both had the chefs tasting menu. It is good to sample an assorted menu. The total bill was around $300.00.

    Per Se's French cuisine is enough to keep you toasty, impressed, and very well-fed. Really treat yourself (... or your date) and get the Tasting Menu.

    Per Se upholds the standards set by The French Laundry, and despite the defection of longtime chef Jonathan Benno to open his own place, it remains one of the outstanding dining experiences in NYC. Read more

    Per Se makes more than meals, they make memories. The combination of incredible food, thoughtful service, and a luxurious setting induces a dreamlike state.

    Cult NYC Foodie favorite, but if you’re finding it difficult to score a reservation, head to the bar area where you can order the dishes a la carte for the same Per Se experience.

    Enjoy the sunset over Central Park as you while away your evening with a 7- or 9-course meal inspired by the flavors of France. One of the best ways to spend a New York evening.

    We all know it's expensive, but splurge a little and have dinner here. Worth every penny. Ask your server for a tour of the kitchen

    Unforgettable in every way. If I had to choose, it would be a meal here over a new pair of Louboutin heels (yes, truly). The memories will last longer...

    If you can afford it, this place is an absolute MUST. The food, the service are exceptional. If you can't get a res, you can still eat in their 'Salon' which is a la carte. (Jackets still required) Read more

    It was pretty damn awesome. Just think it's way overpriced. It's not twice as good as places like Jean Georges or Le Bernardin. But top notch. Ask for a tour of the kitchen… (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more
