    Not a fan of the new menu concept

    I have eaten here several times over the past couple years. The food and service are always exceptional. However, they recently changed their menu, and I have to say at first I thought it was a cool concept, but in reality, having to ask our server a dozen or so questions on how the food is prepared was a little off-putting. Our server was extremly gracious, as they always are, but this new "pick your favorite food" style does not work for me. I really hope they tweak their concept to include something about how the food is prepared. For example, they had foie gras as a food choice. However, I did not ask how this was prepared, and ended up with a terrine instead of a seared piece. Had I known it was going to be a terrine, I would have chosen something else.

    Exceptional!

    My wife and and good friend recently had lunch here and all three of us thought it was exceptional. Granted, we were celebrating my wife'sbirthday, but EMP knocked our socks off! The amuse bouche selection was both clever and tasty (carrot marshmallows, gougeres, foie gras nibbles, green peas lollipops!), and the courses were equally impressive. The starter of poached egg in asparagus veloute' with morels was heaven in a bowl. That dish alone was worthy of any Michelin 3 star restaurant in France. It was so simple, but so perfectly prepared. I then had lamb, which was presented 5 ways -- as loin, leg, sausage, sweetbreads, and in pasta. Again, so many wonderful flavors and textures -- and so much to experience on one plate. It was an embarrassment of luxury and technique. The dessert selection was beautiful and delicious -- especially a pine nut tart and a selection of inventively flavored mini macaroons. My companions had equally rapturous comments on their dishes -- a cous cous like grain with sweetbreads, suckling pig, and salmon. Service was perfect -- the were always around, but never intrusive. I cannot say enough good things about my experience here. I felt it was a true value at lunch and on par with other highly touted spots in NYC , including Le Bernardin and Daniel. If you have the opportunity to visit EMP, do not pass it up. It's like the best of New York and Paris rolled into one perfect bite of the best thing you ever ate.

    The Experience is all...

    This is the place to go for a great overall experience, on a special occasion. The food is always fresh and often local, and impeccably & creatively prepared -- specialties are seasonal and the wait staff are extremely well informed about what is good and what is not quite as astonishing. But there are many other places to go that are just as or nearly as good in this city, so the reason for going here is the whole experience, which includes the service and the ambience, which help transform this into an amazing place for special occasions. Not recommended for an ordinary lunch or dinner (unless someone else suggests it and pays!)

    Don't expect too much

    We went there for my gf's birthday and she liked it but if it was to me, I would have expected a bit better service for the price. There is average half an hour wait for each part of the meal including the little dishes in the beginning (3 hours for 3 course prix fix), also I would have liked a bit more food for the price (or maybe you shouldn't eat too much food for dinner with which I disagree). Overall it made her happy and therefore satisfied my goal.

    Four Star Worthy

    Memorable evening for sure. I have eaten at other four star restaurants before and there is no question EMP is a part of the few elite restautants. It was my girfriend birthday and when we recieved the menu it had her name printed on it saying happy bday. Every morsel of food we ate was perfection from the amuse to dessert. We also had the sommenier pair wine with all of out courses and they were all spectacualr wines to begin with which paired with our food perfectly. The server knew i was in the business so they also gave us a tour of the kitchen. I would reccommend this restaurant to anyone who knows and loves fine food.

    Everything awesome except the food

    This restaurant has great atmosphere, nice flowers, awesome service. Only thing it lacks is good food. Four of us went for lunch and ordered all different dishes. All the dishes were just average (I tasted from everyone's plate) with a couple of slightly above average ones.

    A Great Restaurant With A few Flaws

    OK, let's face it 11 Madison has great food, but small portions with service that is about as good as it gets. Sounds great. The wine list has amazing bottles. But here's the thing. You have to spend $80 for a bottle, minimum. They should have a few less pricey, but still good wines costing around $40-50. The new lunch price fixe ($28) is a wonderful bargain, but desserts are $12 each, and an expresso will run you another $5-6. Boy, if they had a $40-50 bottle of wine to offer --for either lunch or dinner-- we would be talking best restaurant in the City. As it is, this is a fine restaurant to go to. But it is not as good as it thinks it is.
