A former native New Yorker and worldwide lover of good food and great restaurants. We were in to celebrate friends running the marathon, Recommended by my nephew this was one of the most pleasurable dining experiences in recent memory. True you need to be able to afford it, but so many N.Y. places charge as much and do not deliver close to what we experienced. Our waiter was informative, pleasurable and extremely helpful. He timed our courses perfectly as well. For Foie gras fans you must get this dish and don't share you won't want to give any away. The ambience matched the quality of the food. I had the duck and it was superb. Do yourself a favor and get to this restaurant next time you want something special and spend the dough, it is worth it!

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful experience here for her birthday. We were greeted by a very pleasant host staff, given outstanding service by our waiter, foodrunners, and bussers, and the food was simply amazing. The atmosphere is very warm and romantic. Eleven Madison is simply a great restaurant to take anyone you care for.

Let me start by remarking how wonderful the service was, completely helpful and with not a hint of pretentiousness. The food was quite good as well, don't pass on the desserts. The appetizer list was both interesting and excellent. I had the duck for my main course, it was very good. Overall, Eleven Madison Park would get one of my highest recommendations and one more special kudos to the staff, they were spectacular!

Such a wonderful experience (dining, service, atmosphere) was made to seem cozy, comfortable and relaxing. Sort of reminds me of Gramercy Tavern "lite"--theoretically and physically. The room takes on a warm glow at sunset that is not to be missed. Escargot raviolis, short ribs, foie gras and lobster were hits. We skipped dessert and thoroughly enjoyed the cheese course. We will be back-soon.

Changed tables twice because we felt like we were in a wind tunnel. Service spotty but the noise was dreadful and in a party of seven I could only talk to the people next to me. The foie gras appetizer was terrific, the main course ordinary. Go, look at the pretty room, and eat somewhere else.

Been a few times for dinner a couple years back, always had the awsome steak for two, first time for brunch and it's yummy! The food & service are excellent. When the fryolator broke the sous chef panfried our pomme frittes because we had already ordered them! Very good for kids.

No wonder they won the James Beard award for service this past year! I am greeted like an old friend even by the coat check staff! It is one of the most stunning restaurant spaces in NY. Good for business, good for romance, good for a special meal with pals. That is the Danny Meyer touch...it suits everyone. As for the food, excellent, although I think the fish outshines the beef every single time. Dressing on salads were a bit heavy...Any type of flan that Chef Kerry creates is always worth getting. I can't wait for the seasonal spring pea flan. As for desserts, go for the very generous cookie/cake platter. Enough to share for at least 2, and even 4 as a tasting platter when you don't want a heavy ending to your meal.
