Having enjoyed many meals at telepan over two years, imagine my surprise while attending their special 4 course Seder dinner to have the staff refuse a simple request for one course to be substituted for allergy reason! In fact, when the haughty manager was summoned, he actually refused our request to remedy the situation by simply ordering an extra course..AT OUR EXPENSE. It was just plain weird....this is a simple request honored by three star restaurants city wide. Telepan is charging THREE STAR PRICES and sadly providing ONE STAR service.

went here on a tuesday night with a date. the food was unbelievable, the service impeccable, and the atmosphere was great - definitely nice to see such a great restaurant choosing UWS as its location, but the meal itself, nothing couldve been better - and the foie gras donuts are a must-try.

Been dining here since they opened, and it keeps getting better! Menu is constantly changing so diners don't get bored - yellowtail sashimi is out of this world, had the sea scallops the other night as well usually have a hard time getting through more than two, inhaled all four of Chef Telepan's parsley encrusted variety. New faces around the restaurant bring a great new energy, especially at the door. Keep doing what you guys are doing!

I usually don't write things about restaurants, but we were so well treated and the experience so sublime, I just had to chime in! I made a reservation for my husband's birthday and we were treated royally from the moment we arrived. The food was so interesting and delicious, and we both shared everything. The nice touch was a decorated plate with a candle which was brought for dessert, so thoughtful. We loved the quiet room and it all seemed so elegant. Thank you, Telepan.....

Live in the neigborhood,have been a regular from the first week. Place gets better and better. Love the variety of things on the menu,easy to eat there a few times a month.Always something new and fresh. Chef is very friendly and there are some new faces at the door,who go out of there way to please.Tried some of the new trendy places on the upper westside,but always find my way back for a great consistent meal.

When this place opened 2 years ago, it had a grown-up atmosphere, a charming front of house staff that always remembered you, and food that surpassed most of the UWS mediocrity. I went several times... really liked the vibe. What a difference 2 years makes! At first, I thought it was just an off-night, but after 2 more recent visits, I realized that the downward spiral wasn't just a fluke. There seems to have been a turnover in staff (disappointingly so) and the quality of the food has deteriorated. The eponymous chef wasn't anywhere to be found the last 3 times, either. What gives? It's too expensive for this sort of carelessness. I hope they get it together soon. We needed them in the neighborhood!

Went here last weekend and were wonderfully surprised by just how good everything was. After reading some of the reviews here, we were a little concerned, but the food and service were top notch. We chose to do the four-course tasting and the fact that you get to choose the dishes yourself, rather than have the chef choose them, was a refreshing change. Every dish was well uted and featured fresh ingredients. Our server couldn't have been more helpful and accomodating. He walked us through all the dishes and seemed very knowledgeable. We were directed to some interesting wines by the rather quirky-looking sommelier, who turned out to be charming by-the-way, and were very pleased with his suggestions. We can't wait to go back with friends!
