    Eleven Madison Park's Manhattan cart is a must-try at the three Michelin-starred New York restaurant. A server will push over a cart then present a map of the city with five different Manhattan styles named after various neighborhoods. The cart is equipped with fixings like bitters, garnishes and ice for the diner's choice of a tableside Manhattan. [Photo: Darin Louie]

    This upscale French-American resto in Flatiron has a 16-course tasting menu (... for a cool $165), and two private dining rooms with gorgeous views of Madison Square Park.

    It's a gorgeous room, the service is extremely friendly, and while the food doesn't shout "innovation," it is always delicious.

    Housed in a refurbished former bank building with vaulted ceilings and natural light streaming from enormous windows, Eleven Madison Park is a glorious treat for all five senses.

    The menu allows you to chart paths of varying lengths, from three standard courses, each of which you choose, to a “gourmand” experience of 11 unspecified courses that Mr. Humm selects for you.

    Eleven Madison’s list offers tremendous range at surprisingly reasonable prices. The choice of producers is impeccable, from rising stars like Julian Haart and A. J. Adam to established leaders like Willi Schaefer, Von Schubert and Dönnhoff.

    Its roughly 30 dishes, presented in three tidy menu columns, are all portioned somewhere between a normal appetizer and an abnormally stinting entree, most around $15. A little goes such a long way.

    This was the most consistently high quality meal we had in New York. After eating here I wished we’d never vowed to try the full spectrum of New York foods and given the ethnic food and burgers a miss.

    EMP Summer House We were sat outside, so we cannot speak to the noise that others have wrote about in the dining room. Although I was not there, it did not seem too loud passing by. We got the corn flatbread for a starter. We found it to be awesome, but a little pricey at $23 for the portion you receive. I know it's the Hamptons, but we went to multiple high end restaurants that all offered free rolls, but here rolls and butter were $12. We both had linguini as the entree. The amount of clams in it was not much, but just enough to make it acceptable. It was also tasty. For dessert, we had the strawberry sorbet. Again, it was tasty, but the portion was small. We asked our server, who was excellent, if splitting was enough for 2 people. She made it seem like it would be even though it was tiny. It you really think dessert makes a meal, get one for each person. After dinner, we went to the back patio and sat in the Adirondack chairs. I recommend the Brooklyn summer ale, also the cheapest beer on the menu. We sat with a ton of awesome people who we met for the first time. All the people we talked to seemed very nice and we had good conversation. Overall, great experience and would go again.

    EMP Summerhouse, the pop up in East Hampton was an amazing experience from beginning to end. Don't miss the corn flatbread. We had lots of starters including the lobster tempura which was great. The Ribeye for two was amazing as was the fried chicken and Orecchiette. Their version of Bouillabaisse was delicious. The wait staff was wonderful especially Darien Brown who made wonderful suggestions for our dinner and was on point. He also had a great personality. The deserts were also amazing. And after dinner we played outdoor games which was lot's of fun. Don't miss this experience👍🏻

    From the moment you arrive, you are assaulted by a din for which they should hand out noise canceling headphones, but alas, they don't. I ordered a Lettuce Taco as an appetizer. It was supposed to come with avocado and Bonito. If I looked with a microscope , I might have been able to find a few random shards of avocado along with a dust, which might have been Bonito. While the dish was not offensive, it was almost flavorless. This was followed by a main course of seared chicken with beans and "savory". The chicken was well seasoned, if a bit salty. It was accompanied by a few randomly spaced beans. I never did find out what the "savory" was supposed to be, and whether the chef forgot it on my plate or whether it was hidden under one of the three green bean fragments, and I just could not see it. I chose a peach cobbler for dessert. The menu specified that it came with Ricotta ice cream. As I do not care for Ricotta, I asked our server if another flavor of ice cream could be substituted. She said "NO". She then added that she could inquire if this was permissible, but their desserts were meant to be served as specified on the menu. Moments later, she returned and wordlessly placed a soup spoon to my right. Apparently, my plea had been granted. The cobbler was adequate, nothing more. Our server, incidentally, never stopped by during any course to see if we needed anything, nor inquired as to whether we enjoyed or liked anything. Do not waste your time or money at this mediocre, pretentious pop up.

    We visited to celebrate a fiends 60th and had a private room . Everything was superb , but you might need a large bank balance to survive the Wine list ! The Summerhouse at East Hampton is quite a family event with lots of action , children and outdoors games , so don't expect a romantic quiet meal You will get excellent service , excellent food and forgetting the price superb wine

    Went there on a Sunday night and had an amazing time. Great service and beautiful pop up space in east hampton. We had a selection of starters and apps only. Don't skip the lobster tempura and corn flatbread. Worth the money! One note about the negative reviews -- keep your expectations reasonable and don't drive 3 hours to get here. If you are in the Hamptons already, make the time to get here.

    Being a huge foodie and a lover of top Michelin star restaurants, I was ecstatic when I was able to secure a reservation at EMP. At the time, it was rated #2 in the world, and I visited right after they were bumped to #1. It started very well, with some really standout dishes like the "eggs benedict" caviar, and perhaps the best bread we've ever had (we had 3 orders of it!). There were a couple of dishes that were good, but certainly not Michelin 3 Stars level. Their signature lavender duck was really delicious. Service was also a bit underwhelming. It started off quite well, but as the meal went on, courses took longer and longer to come (we were waiting 30 mins+ each for our last few courses). Near the end, we can hardly get someone over for water. The pacing was bizarre. We were invited to the kitchen for a drink, which I requested through e-mail prior to our dinner, which I appreciated. Overall, EMP was still a fantastic meal. Was it the best meal I've ever had, like I was expecting it to be? Sadly, no. It fell short on both the food and the service, though not so much so that I had a bad experience. Ultimately, it was still one of the top 5 meals I've ever had, though I think on the lower half of the list, after other standout restaurants like Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, The Ledbury, and Bon Innovation.

    While I have not been to the restaurant in NYC I snagged a few reservations at the summer pop up in the Hamptons. This place is clearly trading off the NY reputation and someone spent a lot of time and money on creating hype. It was the worst meal I have ever had in the Hamptons! All of our appetizers were over-salted. Our entrees were over-cooked and the fish (stripped bass - local here in the Hamptons) was frozen!! It was like chewing on rubber. They even managed to destroy the oysters. Whoever is in the kitchen has no taste buds at all. A sour vinaigrette was poured over the oysters with "champagne grapes" that were soaked too long so instead of adding a pop in the mouth they were soggy and slimy. There were four of us and we had no alcohol, only tap water - the bill was more than $500. The room was so loud and no ambiance to speak of. I left with a headache and we all felt like we had licked a block of salt for dinner. With such a short summer I was truly upset that I wasted a Friday night on this place. I have cancelled all my reservations. Will not be going back for sure!!! Yes, it was crowded and is one of the "in" spots this summer, but please skip the restaurant and instead go to the outside bar, have a drink, order a snack from the bar menu and tell hem to hold the salt! If fine dining and good food is what you want there are a lot of other wonderful places, even pop ups in the Hamptons.

    My favorite piece of real estate near Madison Park. It was Tabla and what a great idea and incarnation. Then Eleven Madison Park worthy of talk of "Best of New York." Now it is closed and what comes next?

    Anytime myself and my brothers travel to a destination, we try and fine dining restaurant. We visited madison avenue, and were immediately greeted with an atmosphere of positivity. The food was sensational, with a thorough description of each course given by the server, along with good wine pairing by the sommelier. An extremely relaxed atmosphere with ample room to enjoy your meal. Words don't describe 11 madison park, only the sense can.

    Eleven Madison Park (EMP) just feels right from the moment one is greeted at the door. The room is expansive, with very high ceilings (I'm told it's a former bank building). The food and overall experience do not disappoint. We were there for 4 hours, so our time at EMP served as both a fine dining experience and the evening's entertainment. Service is friendly and efficient and the staff members are excellent at answering any questions. As has become the practice at most of the world's top restaurants, EMP offers a tasting menu only but not to worry--they ask about allergies, likes/dislikes, etc., and take all of that into account for each diner such that you may not get all of the same items as your table mates but you will never be served anything you don't want to eat (as long as you provided information in advance). Portion sizes were at times on the dainty side but after 11 courses with wine pairings, we didn't leave hungry. EMP has an extensive wine list so we both opted for wine pairings to take advantage of the sommelier's expertise. The night we were there, EMP was offering something akin to a "greatest hits" tasting menu, with a number of diner favorites from past menus reprised. The wine pairings were mostly whites and everything went well with the dish being served, as expected. I opted for the premium pairing, which cost the same as the meal. My companion chose the supposedly more basic pairing at $195. That way, each of us was able to sample each wine offering. The difference between the wine pairings was that the premium selections were all older or from slightly more prestigious vineyards/appellations. For example, for one course, I got a Sauterne while my companion received a wine from the same area but with a different appellation. All of the wines were good but throughout our self-devised taste test, the premium selections were more full-bodied. Our unanimous pick for the best course of the evening surprised both of us because it was vegetarian, but still an homage to New York's great steakhouses of the past. It was a representation of steak tartare but done with 2 perfect carrots. The server attached a hand-crank meat grinder to the table and put two large, perfect carrots through it. The result was incredibly flavorful even by itself, but it was served with a variety of sauces and oils. Another favorite of mine was a perfect piece of halibut wrapped in a very thin piece of zucchini. I'm not ordinarily a fan of zucchini but this dish worked for me. Also interesting was an homage to New England clambakes. The centerpiece was a white teapot of sorts, filled with a mix of clam nectar and cream, which was poured into little cups. Around the teapot were 6 different clams, one each of 3 different species of clam and each with a different sauce on top. They were delicious and this was the one course where I wish there had been a larger portion, just 1 clam of each variety per person not being enough. When writing TripAdvisor reviews, we are always asked to rate overall value. I find it difficult to call such an expensive restaurant a good value but for foodies, it's a pretty terrific splurge. I know that one European organization voted EMP the best restaurant in the world for 2017. Having looked at their list, I realize that counting EMP, I have only been to 3 of the restaurants on it so I probably don't have a good basis for determing whether or not they are correct. Whether or not EMP is the absolute best is of little consequence, though, when our experience was so good. If you are able to get into EMP, I have no hesitation about recommending it. It was a great experience.

    This place is soooo worth it! A very cool vibe, which is a nice change of pace from so many stuffy fine dining joints. The staff is great and the food is even better. We did the set course menu, which took two hours but was well worth it.

    We did a good NYC January with back to back visits to eleven Madison and per we The excellence of both was incredible but we were slightly surprised when later in the year eleven Madison got world number one when we actually preferred per se a little better Maybe per se were still smarting from the bad ny times review and Thomas had kicked tail but we liked both the food and the service and atmosphere better Eleven Madison was great, don't get me wrong but felt just a little impersonal Some of the dishes were better than others too - I didn't get the "black and white" cheese cookie and the chocolate game...... I now have a slightly surreal sense of disappointment if this is the best there is although maybe I'm being picky......

    I was in NYC on a business trip and wanted to check one of its 3 star restaurants, and I am very glad I choose EMP. I walked in without reservation on a Monday and asked for a seat at the bar, the only kind available without reservation. I asked for the 5 course tasting menu (served only at the bar) and a glass of wine. My experience was nothing short of unforgettable. Service has the perfect mix of attention and coolness, providing incredible thoughtful service and still making you feel like you're a regular there. The bar menu has the restaurant more historically important and best dishes, you are only getting their all time best, which I think is perfect for most people who are not food critics, chefs or regulars at 3 star restaurants. Long story short, just go, it is definitely worth it.

    The food, the people, the ambiance made this a perfect evening for us. Everything was prepared with much thought and detail. You are introduced to a mirage of flavors and texture. It felt like you're part of a culinary cast and you're the guest of honor. The place was packed yet we did not feel neglected. We celebrated the birthday of my husband and son. We were granted the pleasure to view their kitchen. Led by Sheryl, we stood behind a nice counter of a very organized and clean working kitchen. A grape bourbon ice sorbet was prepared for us. It served as a great palate cleanser. We would return again when they re-open.

    We were fortunate enough to attend an engagement party at this restaurant. The food was absolutely awesome. It was an experience of a lifetime. They let us visit the kitchen which was fascinating. The tasting menu was brilliant even for a non meat eater like me. The wine pairings were phenomenal.
