Eleven Madison Park is pretty near Metropolitan Life Insurance Tower. You will like its food, particularly delicious strawberry shortcake and famous foie gras. To order spectacular baked alaska is a really nice idea. Perfect wine is a decent choice. The staff is friendly that's what makes this restaurant so good. Impeccable service is something clients appreciate here. As a lot of guests remark, the atmosphere is brilliant. It's a three-star Michelin restaurant that is worth a special visit. The restaurant was awarded 4 black knife-and-fork symbols denoting that the Michelin inspectors state Eleven Madison Park keeps exceptional comfort.

There is a good reason it's #1 in the world. Chef Humm has taken Americana food and ingredients, French preparation, quality ingredients and honest simplicity and blended something truly amazing. This is the greatest dining experience I've ever had in my life.
I can't believe I'm giving "The Best Restaurant in the World" a 4 star rating. Completely missing the WOW factor you expect as far as food is concerned. And I'm usually extremely generous with 5 star ratings. But if you're going to be #1 you have to really be #1. Honestly the ambiance, service, and attention to detail is top top. It's why they're rated what they are. But the food was only good! It's so disappointing! I expected flavors, dishes I'd wish I could try again but wouldn't be able to until I somehow came back here. Not 1. If it wasn't for the service I'd say my rating would be a 3, maybe even a 2 because of price. I think the missing factor was that the food was bland. In fact the newly renovated venue was pretty bland and underwhelming as well. Now for the positives! Did a tour of the kitchen, it's totally calm and huge and clean and beautiful. Real masterpiece back there since the renovations. There's a real relaxing vibe to the place, that was great. You also get about 10 different servers come to you throughout the night, felt like we were hosted by the whole kitchen - staff really cares about what they do and take it super seriously. That was nice. I think they also do a great job of accommodating. If I had an allergy, or didn't like a certain type of food, you get the impression they'll drive over to McDonald's to get you a burger if that's what they think you really want and to accommodate you. Unfortunately I eat everything and I'm not a picky difficult person so I couldn't benefit personally from that level of accommodation they definitely excel at. Bottom line: they need to rethink their tasting menu because if you're #1, you can't have ok dishes. The dishes were just ok. Nothing amazing. Everyone I was with agreed. I've ate at many Michelin star rated restaurants and high end restaurants in general. EMP you have to really please introduce some WOW factor into the menu because everything was just OK.
Went here for a work lunch and while the name has quite a reputation, I wanted to go in with an open mind to see for myself if this place can satisfy every palate. I should preface the review saying this: it did. We started with a salad that offered the perfect amount of crunch to smooth, sweet to sour, fruit to vegetable. We had a baked sweet corn grit that was beyond perfect. The crisp layer of carmelization on the top was to die for. For dessert, we had a chocolate sculpture who's name I don't remember. Imagine decadent chocolate perfectly formed into a rectangle box. Open the box and find a chocolate cake. A unique design that was so rich I'm glad to have shared it among 4 people. Melted in your mouth. Surprisingly, the price wasn't too expensive compared to other restaurants in NYC that aren't even on the same scale as this. I'd go back for apps or drinks some night just to get another fill
