24. Joel Robuchon, Las Vegas, Nevada

The pampering service and the jewel-like mansion setting smother you in elegance and luxury.' -TripAdvisor reviewer Rebekah H

'Besides the beautiful garden and skyline, the staff at The River Cafe, really go out of their way to treat you special. If you want to celebrate a special event, this is the place to go. The portions are small but delicious and the chef treated us to an amuse-bouche and then we got chocolates in addition to our desserts!' -TripAdvisor reviewer montymamma

22. Kokkari Estiatorio, San Francisco, California


'Our waiter was outstanding, he was very efficient without rushing our family gathering. The food was outstanding, try any of the traditional Greek dishes, you are in for a treat! The wine list was excellent and not over priced.' -TripAdvisor reviewer ronald h

'One of the best meals we have ever had anywhere! My husband had the trout Caesar and said it was one of the most interesting dishes he has ever had. Filet was perfectly cooked and excellent.I can't say enough about the atmosphere, service, and food. And the prices are incredibly reasonable.'-TripAdvisor reviewer MandDplus2

19. Girl & The Goat, Chicago, Illinois


'We were lucky enough to be seated at the Chef's Table one evening last week and had a great time. The food was outstanding and the service was wonderful. We tried several of the signature dishes and were happy with them all. It was really fun to sit and watch the crew prepare the food and ask questions. Great place. I highly recommend it.' -TripAdvisor reviewer Sanford F

18. Per Se, New York City, New York


'My wife and I had the extreme pleasure of dining at Per Se prior to attending a show. What we discovered was that the dining experience at Per Se is an event in itself. Every table has a breathtaking view of Central Park through a wall of large paneled glass. Every course presented a taste sensation that we wanted to savour for an extended period of time.' -TripAdvisor reviewer Ixthus72005

15. Lahaina Grill, Lahaina, Hawaii


'From start to finish, our dining experience was truly memorable. The wagyu beef ravioli appetizer was the best...and whatever magic the chef is making with the 'catch of the day' is always a good choice, and our night proved that. Do not miss this restaurant if you are visiting Maui!'-TripAdvisor reviewer Don Z

14. Mama's Fish House, Paia, Hawaii


'The salads are creative, the flavours of whatever meat you choose are true and fresh, the atmosphere is elegant, and the setting is beautifully tropical. We always try to have at least one meal at Mamma's whenever we are on Maui.'-TripAdvisor reviewer LocalGirl55

While the bacon and egg appetizer was delicious, the highlight of our meal was the Strawberry shortcake, be sure not to miss it!'-TripAdvisor reviewer mkobo

12. Eleven Madison Park, New York City, New York


'This was the most joyful restaurant…the service, the heavenly food, the space, the unique style, even being invited back to the kitchen where the chef made an indulgent snow cone for me...If Michelin could only give 4 stars, I would vote for this memorable/exquisite/gustatory heaven.' -TripAdvisor reviewer Michael B

Each and every component of each and every dish was absolutely perfect. Flavour combinations you only dream about come to life with every bite.' -TripAdvisor reviewer Afossani

1. Bouley, New York City, New York


'From the minute we entered the door and were greeted by the person who seated us it was clear that we were in a very special place. The food was superb and is greatly deserving of the maximum number of stars. The delightful finishing touch, however, was the gift upon our departure of a lemon pound cake from the Maitre D.' -TripAdvisor reviewer CeciliaWest
