Diner Reviews
  • "The staff , especially the waitress were the most accommodating. She (sorry do not recall her name) went out of her way to make us comfortable and offer to taste the wine, when I hesitated about the quality."

  • "This is a great spot for a bite to eat before a performance at Avery Fisher Hall. Fast service and food was good. Probably not worth the full price, but hey it is NYC and we just got up and walked into the concert hall."

  • "This is a very convenient restaurant for Lincoln Center. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. And I am never late to the performance."

  • "Arpeggio is located in Avery Fisher Hall. Dinner there is very convenient for concert goers. But, if the food isn't good, then convenient or not, I wouldn't go. But the food is and I did. It 's a wonderful beginning to a night with the New York Philamonic. I had the Split Pea soup. Though different from what I expected, it was very tasteful and I liked it. Then I had the Lemon-Herb Chicken Breast. It too was very good. The chicken was done correctly - cooked but not over cooked. It was moist and tender. I don't care for risotto, but my wife does. She had most of the risotto the chicken rested on and she said it was very good. For dessert, I had gelato. Really really excellent. Next time, I'm trying the Lasagna!"

  • "Due to a bad traffic jam we were about 45 min late for our reservation and arrived about an hour before our concert was scheduled to start. We called them to say we'd be late and, without a fuss, they kept our reservation and graciously seated us immediately upon our arrival (when there were 'walk-ins' waiting for tables). Without making us feel rushed, we were able to order our food and wine and were served promptly so we even had dessert and made the concert on time. The food was superb and well presented. It was a very enjoyable experience - a precursor to a most enjoyable concert. I'd do it all again - except for the traffic jam."

  • "I have been here many times and the food and service are usually good enough. But last evening, it was awful. The waitress showed us her computer print out of the special for us to read because she couldn't understand or say it. The service was slow and careless. My fish entree was bland. I had to salt it to make it edible. Very disappointing. And not inexpensive!"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "The location is perfect for or philharmonic subscription. Our service is almost always wonderful, as it was last evening - although slow, however the food came out barely warm and despite a 5:30 reservation there was not enough time for tea, coffee or dessert. Also, this was the first time we were told about a 10% discount on our dinner because of our subscription. Have I been missing something for 15 years or is this new?"

  • "Very good service. Got you out for the concert in plenty of time. Food was very good. Friendly and courteous service,"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Once again; this restaurant serves those going to an evening NY Philharmonic concert. We at least have never had lunch there. That being said, it does give value. Yes; one can get really superb food elsewhere, but Arpeggio does very well indeed, considering that most of its clientele are anxious to be finished with dinner in plenty of time for a 7:30 or 8 pm concert. Arpeggio is efficient; it has to be. It's unfair on the chef just to give faint praise. My brook trout was particularly delicious. The menu isn't extensive; how could it be? Of course, we shall be back for the next concert season!"

  • "food was edible, but nothing more. service was friendly but unpolished. salmon was raw and was sent back. it had been ordered well done. when they brought it out again, it was fine. my dessert (ice cream) came ten minutes after my companions'. we had dined here before and it was better. it is way overpriced for the value. only good for convenience when the weather is bad. the place was mobbed to obviously my opinion is irrelevant."

  • "A surprisingly good restaurant. A good meal before a usually good performance."

  • "Used to like this place, but now I think it's only benefit is location within Avery Fisher Hall. The food and service are mediocre, and it's way overpriced."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Good last-minute place to go before Philharmonic concerts because of convenience, but food is nothing special. Meatball appetizer heavily salted. Brook trout itself was very good, but remainder of dinner plate a strange onion grapefruit concoction that looked like Sysco canned food. Overpriced for what you get."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Of course, this place has its built-in clientele: NY Philharmonic concert-goers. That said, it is very efficiently run and in our experience dependable. This time I came by myself (opera rehearsal for lady companion: she missed both a superb pianist, Bronfman, and a very good meal.) We try to get the same server: "Theresa", who is both pleasant and very efficient, and always seems to know what is specially good. It was impressive watching her handle a table of three elderly ladies, leaving them with three happy smiles. A superb natural psychologist, I think; it's particularly important here to keep the NY Philharmonic customers satisfied."

  • "Always pleasant and the staff knows what you like if you've been there before."

  • "Pre-concert service slow, waiter forgot side dish, cooked aspagus undercooked and cold, SALMON GOOD, (so not all bad), should be better considering location and prices...."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "The best thing about Arpeggio is the location in Lincoln Center and being in Philharmonic Hall. Second best is the reasonably price good food. the main problem is the noise, especially in the hall way between the 2 larger rooms, where we 4 older women were seated before a concert recently. A table of 4 near us was incredibly noisy, which may have been the location or perhaps the people themselves. The sound level in restaurants in NYC tends to be a problem these days. I would suggest having a "Quiet " area fro clients who you deem to be over 65, which is a large percentage of subscribers to the opera, ballets, and the Philharmonic."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "My waiter was unfriendly. I think when you are paying that kind of money, you have to provide a good service. We will not dine there again. We will go to Café Boulud across the street. One thing I abhor is spending my money where I feel like I need to please the waiter or waitress."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "The convenience of Arpeggio is (for me) it's prime asset."

  • "Whenever I go to Lincoln Center to the Ballet or the Symphony , I love to eat here. The food is good, the service very good and the whole experience very pleasant. "

  • "Good place to go for a quick bite before a concert. A bit pricey!"

  • "Such a great addition to Lincoln Center! I always know that the food will be very good, the staff friendly, and the location PERFECT."

  • "It's a great and convenient place to have dinner while attending a concert at Lincoln Center. The food is good but pricy. The service in general is quite good."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Very nice, food good, but not spectacular. They had some difficulty with organizing the serving. We have been there before and always found it very pleasant."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "We were disappointed with Arpeggio...food was mediocre, service was very brusque, and the evening we dined, the temperature in the restaurant was probably around 60 degrees. Most of the diners kept their coats on! Other than the fact that we were attending an 8PM performance and the location was convenient, I would NOT recommend. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "I used to go there in the past before ballet or concert (even when it was Pane e Vino) but unfortunately noticed decrease in food and service quality. Food (didn't order anything fancy)was very mediocre, even Tiramisu had not much to do with Tiramisu. Waiter was like a robot set up on slow motion. No personal touch. Definitely next time I will go to other place in the neighborhood."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "To my surprise the main meal arrived 90 seconds after ordering. Chicken breast on a bed of lemon risotto and baked carrots. The waiters were lovely, very professional and attentive, no issues there. But the meal arrived 90 seconds after I ordered it, never a good look. The waiter looked embarrassed, as so she should. Roasted chicken breast assembled on a bed of lemon risotto. It had been pre prepared and kept hot on the stove. The chicken had survived reasonably well a bit dry, but the risotto had got all oily. This was a $29 main course. Truly, I know its the Lincoln Centre and all, and busy as, but you either a restaurant or a fast food joint, and please don't mix the two up. An absolute rip off."

  • "We made reservation prior to our daughter's graduation at Avery Fisher. We were seated on time, served in good time, food tastey, waiter attentive to food allergies. Made it to graduation with ease. Very enjoyable, festive evening all around."

  • "food didn't come. Then the wrong food came, both courses at the same time. Total confusion among the waitstaff. Very disappointing."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "Food lacking in any real flair or quality - very "cookery school" in conception and execution. Service haphazard and as a venue catering exclusively for diners with a time constraint, not efficient."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "The food and service at this restaurant are always good. I have been dining here for years whenever I go to the ballet. It is a real treat. "
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "I advised my waiter that I had celiac disease and gave him a card listing foods I can't tolerate and asked him to show the chef to assure me that everything I ordered were safe dishes for me. He said the salad and chicken dish I ordered were safe. My Companion and I ordered the same salad. The runner arrived with our salad asked "who is wheat free?) and gave me the salad without the wheat berries. Good job! When my chicken arrived I questioned something on top of the chicken I didn't recognize. My waiter said it was finely sliced pieces of fried carrot that also might have a coating on them. He whisked the dish away. While I waited for a new dish my friend ate alone and then so did I. Not a good experience. Be extra careful here. "

  • "Wonderfully convenient for pre theater at Lincoln Center"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • " Arpeggio has two seating areas consisting of one in the lobby which can be chilly on cold days and one enclosed that's warmer. We were seated in the enclosed section this time and very comfortable. Service was friendly but overlooked water and bread till we asked for it. I ordered a salad which I shared and lasagna that was huge and delicious while my husband's salmon with eggplant and spinach was tasty but skimpy. He needed a roll to supplement his main dish. Arpeggio closes at 8:00 PM so they must get you out to the theaters in time for evening curtain call. The convenient location, delicious but uneven food, uncrowded seating arrangements and moderate sound level makes for pleasant dining without the rush to get to Lincoln Center. "

  • "If you are attending a program at Lincoln Center this is a great place. It is comfortable and both the food and service are well above average. We ate at Arpeggio prior to a recent concert and were very pleasantly surprised. we would return."

  • "Great place to dine pre concert. Expensive, but priced fixed is manageable, although not very interesting. Lemon chicken is a sizable portion and salmon is juicy. Amazingly, coffee/tea is NOT included in the fixed price."
