If you and your cohort of dining companions have to cancel reservations at Le Bernardin, do so quickly: Groups of five or more require a deposit of $50 per person. If you cancel at least 48 hours before your reservation, you’ll be refunded the money. If you give shorter notice, you’ll lose your deposit. Parties of four or fewer don’t face any penalties for failing to cancel. But don’t be a cad, let the restaurant know if you won’t be able to make it.
You can make a reservation at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant by calling directly or booking online through OpenTable. Reservations are highly recommended, as the restaurant is hopping for both at lunch and dinner.
