I've had the four-course dinner on two occasions, and will return for the chef's tasting menu when my finances allow it. I knew from sampling the first course of my first dinner (a progressive tasting of fluke ceviches) that I was in the hands of one of the best chefs in the world. Chef Ripert's subtle, innovative and exquisite combinations of French, Latin American and Asian flavors are unmatched in New York. The wine pairings were the best I've had anywhere. The servers are very attentive, without hovering or being obsequious. N.B.: those of you who complain about portion size should look elsewhere (Red Lobster, maybe).

Best part of the meal was hallowed out egg with custard inside, pretty disappointing cosidering the price and "celebrity chef." Waiters did their jobs, but were distant. Atmosphere is elegant and simple, but I expected more from it. I felt like I was in a friend's dining room. I think we ate more bread than food, since they keep coming around with it! They have too since the portions are so small, leaving you hungry.

Everything from the hostesses to the captains and waiters to the aparatifs and main course and petit fours was a truly memorable and wonderful experience. This restaurant is all about attention to detail and they truly pay attention to it all and make it seem effortless. To address a previous rating, I'm glad that children under 12 years old aren't allowed. There are just some places where children being present isn't appropriate. This is one of those places. If you go, you will want to go again! I know I do!

If you are in search of la petite piece of meat sur la humongoose plate, this is one of the best!

Good food, great service, what else do you need? Btw, angry father who wrote a review - as a parent, I would never bring my child here, also I sure do NOT want to hear your two year old!!

I just called to make a reservation for my wife, some friends from out of town, my 2 1/2 yr old daughter and myself and the reservation attendant informed me that they their policy is that kids under 12 years old are not allowed. How ridiculous for a New York restaurant! My daughter has been going with us to restaurants for dinner since she was 1 year old and is better behaved at the table that some adults. I can't believe such policy. I won't support this restaurant for the next 10 years and encourage all New York parents with small children to do the same. TP
