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.

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.

Friends were in from out of town last week, one of whom is very picky. I knew I could depend on Telepan, having been there many times before. The food was, as always, wonderful. They have brought out their Spring menu, and the mid-course pea concoction, which included fresh peas, a crispy pea pancake and a pea tortelloni, was spectacular. My Heritage Pork main course was a wonderful surprise, with a vinegary sausage and bean salad that perfectly offset the richness of the pork. But it was the service that won the day. The afore-mentioned picky friend is allergic to onions, and she made that very clear to the waiter. He listened! He listened to the point of arranging for an individual amuse bouche especially for her. She was delighted, and so was I. By the way, we went for the 6:00 "pre-theater" special, which is the most extraordinary bargain in NYC, I think: three courses for $39! Unbeatable.

When you splurge, avoid all UWS restaurants in favor of Telepan. It's high quality with high prices but probably worth it. Go here for fancy theatre night over all other choices. . .it beats all of its comps north of 69th street . ..

Wish I came here more often, but I keep feeling we should try other places. Today I wondered why.

Second time we've dined at Telepan for dinner - and second time we have had an immensely enjoyable meal. Both times we had the 4 course tasting menu with wine pairings - and as much as we love the beautiful, flavorful, meticulously prepared food, we could not enjoy the dishes as well without the quietly impassioned, quirky, and unique wine pairings offered by the gentle and well spoken sommelier. Service in general is faultless if somewhat humorless, but the sommelier's quiet smile and brief but enthusiasticly detailed notes on each paired glass of wine added brilliant sparkle to the service. Absolutely wonderous food and a flair with wine to match! For the tasting - the signature appetizer of house smoked trout is just the perfect portion, and hard to pass on except that it would be wonderful to try the other offerings (and the exciting wine pairing to it.) Fois gras mid-course became uber fabulous with the late harvest wine paired with that - and I cannot describe the joyful complement a white Cote-de-Rhone had with the monkfish entree. A really sublime meal.
