Eleven Madison Park can most certainly be characterized as a special occasion restaurant, with its customizable tasting menu and elegant Art Deco décor, but it’s not necessarily a romantic restaurant, as the noise level can be loud — but manageable — due to the high ceilings and sizable bar.
Your date will be impressed with the luxury ingredients and exciting techniques in chef Daniel Humm’s dishes, but keep in mind that it takes a long time to get a reservation (tables are booked 28 days in advance), so we don’t recommend this spot if you’ve just met someone. But for anniversaries and other occasions you can plan for in advance, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant is a great venue. You and your special someone will enjoy the extensive wine list and decadent desserts, such as a chocolate-peanut butter torte or a cheesecake made with sheep’s milk yogurt.
