When you dine at Eleven Madison Park you’ll hear jazz playing softly in the background along with some ambient chattering — the space has soaring high ceilings and large windows that carry some sound.
Your table in the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant will be spacious with plenty of room to move comfortably and enjoy a private conversation, but the space also allows for noise from the lively bar and other tables to spill over. Though the innovative cuisine from chef Daniel Humm is top-notch, the hubbub of the space makes the restaurant feel less stuffy than some other fine dining spots in New York City. All in all, the sound level is moderately loud, but manageable — your conversation certainly won’t be drowned out by surrounding noises.
