I could tell that the hosts of this establishment were briefed about my partner's birthday soon after we signed in Saturday night and they ensured that our dinner was treated as a special occasion. Each course from the chef's testing menu was novel and exciting and the service was like clockwork! The staff provided a small bday cake and lit candle for my partner. At the end they provided a small bag of treats, a booklet of all the providers they use for their ingedients along with the personalized menu signed by the chef! Would recommend this restaurant whole-heartedly!

Per Se has always been in the list of the top restaurants in New York and I have a fondness for fine dining so my friend and I came at the first chance we got (- it has always been difficult to book reservations with you which adds to the higher expectations ) - overall, the experience was very good but some dishes were a "miss" - not very impressed with the foie gras , the duck was the best in the lot, the consistency of the short rib was excellent but a bit too salty and the cheese dish made things redundant - salty too . The others , ( the fish courses were ok - nothing extraordinary). I'll come back for another try .

Had such an exceptional experience thanks to the combined thoughtfulness of the beautiful food and service. Thank you so much for making my birthday dinner so magical, I felt both special and comfortable in such a fine dining atmosphere. The staff especially was so comforting, thoughtful, professional, helpful and elegant. I'm a huge fan of Thomas Keller and all of his culinary destinations and Per Se did not disappoint.

Our visit to Per Se was magnificent. The staff is professional but not stuffy and the food was brilliantly served on the finest of dishes and glassware. Each serving of their tasting menu was a successful mix of flavors and textures. They personalized the menus for my wife's birthday and we felt like royalty the entire night. We asked to thank the chef and staff and we were treated to a visit to the kitchen. We were overwhelmed by how immaculate the floor and tables looked even during an extremely busy night. Add all of this to a very comfortable modern decor and a view of central park and Per Se is to added to the best of the best not only in NYC but maybe the country.

Per Se is a great dining experience that you will not regret. I took my girlfriend there as her Christmas gift. Neither of us are foodies and this was our first time going to a 3-star Michelin restaurant. We enjoyed every dish that was part of the 9 course tasting menu. Money well spent!!

After trying periodically to get a reservation for several years, we finally were able to. At the outset, bring your wallet. That said, the food, atmosphere, décor, presentation, outstanding service ALL exceeded our expectations. All the reviews we read on every possible sight gave some indication of what to expect. Nothing came close to the actual experience. Truly an incredible several hours for lunch. The lunch menu and dinner menu and price are identical, so I suggest a lunch as otherwise it will be a very late night. And get the wine pairing, it's worth it.

I had wanted to go to Thomas Keller's French Laundry in Napa but hadn't been able to get a reservation, and so I was very excited to get to his other three Michelin star restaurant in Manhattan. It was one of the best meals I have had, rating up there with my other favourite: Gordon Ramsay at Hospital Road. The tasting menu was wonderful in terms of flavours, cooking and presentation. The dessert was particularly wonderful. The service was great too; friendly and interested but always perfect.

We visited Per Se for lunch. We were in New York from South Africa and celebrated my 40th birthday here. What an absolutely fabulous experience - a highlight of our week in New York. Everything was impeccably perfect - the food sublime and it was worth every Dollar as it is not cheap. We will remember this visit forever.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC. It was my 4th visit however the first one with my husband. The entire staff are all there to enhance your experience through service and food. They go out of their way to make sure your taste buds are 100% amazed and satisfied. We went for our 17 anniversary and the menu had our names on it. My husband doesn't drink and they made him a "mock-tail" They are observing you from a distance to make sure you are completely delighted. I'd recommend this for a special occasion, business traveler or graduate. I wouldn't bring children under 10 just because I don't feel they could truly appreciate the quality of the food. However they would do their best to accommodate the tiny taste buds. Lastly we received a restaurant tour which I'd say was the highlight at the end of the meal. Yes I will be back!

Incredible as always. The staff is polished and friendly. The food is delicious. Amazing wine list and knowledgeable sommelier- great pairings. A must in New York. And the setting is lovely with a great view of Columbus Circle.

Awesome service and amazing food!
We were celebrating my wife's pregnancy, all the staffs were so sweet and wonderful with everything that we asked for. In terms of the food, they are all so GOOD, it was really hard to pick a favorite. At the end of the meal, they even gave us a special gift for our unborn baby.

The 7 course tasting menu was adventurous. Some pairing was better than others. Our favorite were Oysters and Pearls, grilled fillet of sea trout (crispy skin) and rib eye of the lamb. Still too full a meal for us who had a smaller appetite. Appreciate the birthday surprise cake as well as the take home goodies bag.

Fabulous 4,5 hour lunch. Exquisite food, ingredients, taste, ambience, scenery and staff - nothing remained to be wished for. Gracious attention for my birthday:) To return I'd like being able to order a shorter menu, which would be more affordable, filling enough and less time consuming.

The foods were quite good and we loved the quite ambiance there. For each dishes, the waiter described them very well. At the end of our dinner, however, we felt to be "politely" chased away because there was the other customers waiting for next available table.

Honestly the best experience at a restaurant I've ever had. The staff is absolutely wonderful and the food is exquisite. Best restaurant I have EVER been to. I highly recommend and will be going back again. My fiancée and I went as a celebratory engagement dinner and we had the best view of the New York skyline. Amazing.

One of the best meals of my life. Every course was thoughtful, impeccably prepared and delicious. The presentations were playful and enhanced our enjoyment of our meal. The wait staff was professional, but very friendly. Our waiter made us feel very much at home. I had some special dietary requests which he dealt with in a friendly non-condescending manner. I really thought this would a delicious, but stuffy, experience. I was correct about the food being delicious, but could not have been more wrong about the atmosphere. We found it to be warm and inviting. We will remember this meal, and our entire dining experience, as one of the best we have ever had. Thank you.

Certainly a very special dining event. They couldn't be more accommodating , the servers were knowledgeable and pleasant . Expensive yes, however I can't say it's not worth it... That being said if I had to mention a negative (which is difficult to do) I would say 1 ) too much dessert.2) If they offered a "light " chefs tasting it would've been perfect. The quality was 10 + as was the quantity.
Needing to Finish this review on a positive note.
Every bite was a gastronomic sensory pleasure.
I'm fortunate to have dined at Per Se
