    Wonderful meal!

    Had dinner here for the first time the day after Thanksgiving. We should have tried Telepan earlier! Everything was done really well, from the warm greeting, the simple but elegant decor and the caring service, to the wonderfully prepared food. We chose the tasting menu and were able to choose our four courses from the whole menu, which was a treat. The chef even prepared a special dish for my date, as she has some allergies. All-in-all a perfect introduction to a restaurant that is our new favorite!

    expensive disappointment for 2

    We already made our choices from the current on-line 2009 Thanksgiving menu from Telepan's own website and wine list. However, after being seated, we were disappointed to find that both the wine we had chosen and the port custard napoleon dessert (which were still listed Thanksgiving morning ) were not on the menu and wine list. We ordered the foie gras and the venison, which were adequate but uninventive. Both the appetizer and main course had ingredients that were just on the plate and never came together as a cohesive whole. Regarding the desserts, the pumpkin bread pudding had an unappealing texture; also the brittle was soggy. The chocolate pecan pie had very few pecans. Since we spent over $300 for this meal (2 dinners and a bottle of wine), we expected better. We have had some lovely dining experiences at Telepan. However, If this is kind of food the kitchen is turning out these days, we will not be returning soon.

    mediocre food

    I can report on the basis of only one dinner for two since I have no intention of going back. The three types of bread, the butter, the three amuses bouche, and the four plates were just mediocre. Not one of the above was even good, much less very good or excellent (on my scale). I passed on desert because I did not feel like risking it.

    So happy to have finally found Telepan

    Living on the UWS can make you downright apathetic about eating out in the neighborhood, especially when you want to go out before an event near Lincoln Center. I hate that it took us 4 years to try Telepan, but we're already looking forward to our next visit. The food was quite good (not "the best," but never less than pleasant and occasionally very good), the wine pairings with the tasting menu were truly outstanding, but I think it was the fantastic service that makes this place a true standout. It is so rare to find knowledgeable, gracious service in this city, but this place has every aspect tuned perfectly. First class experience at mid-class prices - I can't wait for the Symphony season to start!

    A Birthday Wish

    I took my husband out for dinner here to celebrate his birthday. We live on the UWS and sadly never experienced Telepan before. My husband and I entertain clients often and our pallets are very lucky to be able to enjoy fine NYC dining, however, this also makes us tough critics. We ended up ordering the 4 course tasting with wine and I am enthused to say that Telepan exceeded our expectations! Our waitress was knowledgeable, passionate, and honest about the dishes. The sommelier was so impressive and like something I have never witnessed…he was a wine encyclopedia!! The tasting had large portions (we didn’t have to hit up a slice on the way home) and was married up to the finest wines. In NYC, 4 courses and 4 glasses of wine for $105 is QUITE a bargain. To top off the fabulous dining experience, without solicitation from us, Chef Bill Telepan came out to personally introduce himself. We are so excited to go back for more of this delicious UWS treat!

    Excellent food and service

    We were treated so well and all of the staff were so welcoming. Sadly, this is a rarity in NY...Our food was excellent. They made a vegan pea plate for me that was outstanding. I did'n't know that peas could be so versatile! My husband loved his meat entree and the dessert was also very flavorful. We will definitly go back. Oh yeah, we had a great table too.

    Overrated

    I had dinner with friends here on a Saturday night. Let me begin and say that the service is wonderful. However, the atmosphere is too snotty, and the food is ok. Not bad at all, but not cheap and not worth the price. We paid more than $200 for the both of us, sharing only one bottle of wine with 5 other people (bottle was about $50). The portions are tiny, and we filled ourselves with bread (some of it was previously frozen and still cold and soggy when served). The lobster ragout ravioli stood out, but other courses like the hanger steak were dull and not satisfying. I would not go back anytime soon.
