Eric Ripert's paean to all things piscatorial is unquestionably one of the daddies of the New York dining scene. No one gets to occupy this amount of prime midtown real estate for this long without knowing exactly what they're doing-and doing it supremely well. Run with consummate ease by a well-organized team, its influence stretches beyond merely the entertaining of big-hitters and even bigger spenders. But however celebrated, the sine qua non of any self-respecting seafood restaurant must be the ability to cook a piece of fish absolutely perfectly and, in this, Le Bernardin displays deftness and consistency. Just try the luxuriantly buttery wild striped bass and you'll get the idea. "Almost Raw," "Barely Touched," and "Lightly Cooked" are the headings under which you'll find an impressive array of dishes. The influences are global but the cooking is underpinned by a mastery of technique; ingredients are of unimpeachable quality and the kitchen has the confidence to never overcrowd a plate so that the fish always remains the star of the show.

      Pros

      Subtle seafood compositions, high quality products, decent wine list (excessively priced) but...

      Cons

      ...nothing superlative, indecent desert portions (although excellent), unforgivable mistakes (miserable bread quality), thoughtful staff but restless service striving to ensure high table turnover. By no means a 3 stars restaurant.
