Tremendous dining experience. My wife is Gluten Free and everything was crafted to accommodate her without sacrificing flavor. If you are a foodie, this place must be high on your list. The food was tremendous. My wife has the vegetable tasting menu and it was just as good as the regular. Service was also fantastic. You can feel the passion from all people at the restaurant. Worth every penny!

Terrific service and the food was spectacular. Took very important client here and he was extremely impressed. There was sufficient food and you left full. Also got a tour of the kitchen which made the visit even more special.

Service is impeccable and gracious. They accommodated our special requests with ease. My husband said this is his favorite Michelin 3 star restaurant surpassing others in NYC, Chicago, and SF. While the food was,of course, excellent, the staff was equally excellent and just as instrumental to the unforgettable experience that we had. We will definitely return.

Booked this restaurant after hearing many great things about it over the years on how great the food is and how nice the wine selection is. The wine selection is very extensive with many great choices, but the result was more disappointment than satisfaction. There is nothing wrong about the service that we received, especially to celebrate a birthday. They even thought of the little things like printing special menus with a wish and having the chef write a nice note. However the food and value was pretty disappointing. In terms of value, I would say compared to other high end establishment, it's easily twice if not more expensive than it should be for the food. It seems every choice on the menu that is notable has a note that says that it is extra cost. With a $325 pp set menu, the extra cost is $70, $100, etc. So it really adds up. Then they have this policy that you can either choose wine that's on their wine list or bring your own wine but pay a corkage of $150 per bottle. I'm told the wine you bring cannot be on their wine list. So we played the cards and brought something on their wine list but of a different vintage. This did not seem to be a problem. And if you think we were crazy to want to pay that extravagant corkage fee, you should see the wine list. Wines that list for $200 in a wine shop costs $1000 on the wine list. I can understand the high wine charge because they don't want you bringing $5 supermarket wine, but it extra charge for everything or get ripped off. For these extra cost reason and the fact that the food isn't that special, I cannot recommend this restaurant to anyone. If you want impress a client or celebrate a special occasion, you can go here, just be sure to bring your own wine. There are thousands of restaurants in New York that offer better value, food, decor, service, location, or a combination of those aspects that there is no reason to go back otherwise.

We celebrated our daughter's birthday last Sunday, and Per Se exceeded our expectations. The nine course tasting was everything we hoped it would be, and the service (probably five different servers over the meal; all knowledgeable and efficient) was outstanding. Our daughter asked a few questions about the menu as she is pregnant, and our waiter appeared with a non-alcoholic champagne for her, and later brought over a yuzu and raspberry water in a yuzu-salted rim glass. My son-in-law has allergies, and substitutions were graciously made. When my son-in-law was observed dusting a few crumbs from his place in between courses, the waiter immediately crumb swept the whole table. When I mentioned to my table mates that I wondered where the rest room was, and stood up, another server accompanied me to the rest room door. These people miss nothing; which is what a Michelin rating is all about. A evening to remember.

The service was amazing, the staff catered to our every need. I don't know where to start on the food. Each dish elegantly prepared and exploding with flavour on the palet. The lobster and the lamb chops were my favorite. I would highly recommend!

Per Se lived up the reputation and the Michelin stars. The service, food and decor were all exceptional. From the moment we were greeted to the very gracious treats waiting for us when we finished, the entire dining experience was a culinary delight.
We were seated by the window on an amazing sunny day overlooking Central Park. Chris, our head waiter, was informative, attentive and made everyone at the table feel special. We had a couple of request which he handled with a smile and exceeded the expectations of the each person. His team did a terrific job of making a 3 hour meal feel special the entire time.
The 9 course lunch tasting menu is a lot of food and I suggest if you are a moderate eater to consider the 5 course which still left two of our guests very full.
It was truly a dining experience not just a meal and we will definitely come here again.

Per Se is a dining experience unlike any other, at least for my wife and me. The menu, the ambience, the service, attention to detail, wine list, décor and above all the extraordinary quality of the food, not to mention the presentation, mark this as surely one of the two or three most memorable dining experiences in our lives. If you can afford it, don't miss it. Simply splendid! Maitre D' Nancy Schumann can be reached at 212 823 9340. Call and head for Columbus Circle.

Quality and service was excellent. I would have appreciated a wine pairing list with the chefs menu. There were hundreds of choices that having a section that had both red and white recommended pairing would've made my overall a 5 star. Unfortunately finding the wine was a bit frustrating and tainted my experience a little. I also recommend the lunch amazing preparation, but I will say what an amazing dessert I'm going back just for that 👍

We had briefer 5 course menu for lunch. It is certain that Per Se provides high-end culinary experience, spanning from well-balanced dishes, great view overlooking Columbus Circle near Central Park, to warm, welcoming service. And great selection of wine.

Per Se, exceeded our expectations with the level of service and the quality of the menu. We were made to feel welcome as soon as we walked through the door and this did not wane throughout the evening. The matching wines and meals was amazing and our experience at per Se will stay with us forever.

Visiting from England, this restaurant provided a deliciously memorable end to a holiday. Brilliant, knowledgeable and friendly service. We were made to feel very special. We have experienced fine dining but this was exquisite.

Every time I visit the restaurant, I cannot think of a better overall dining experience. I have been there for lunch and supper, and the results are always extraordinary.
I had the usuals Oysters and Pearls for starters, and a Sirloin Wagyu theey were amazing.
The service, as always was perfect. The timing and attention to detail were right on the money.
I visited this time the restaurant with a sr. citizen and the staff was very polite arounf Her.
