Diner Reviews
  • "I go to Lincoln center quite often but have never eaten at Joanne's-it is a block I do not walk down so never knew you where there. My friend found the restaurant on open table and it is a gem. We will be coming back."

  • "At first I was skeptical of the place cause it looked small at first but once I was inside it was very nice the customer service was excellent I will truly be coming back again for another datenite in the near future. It was truly a little gem in New York"

  • "Good reasonably priced restaurant near Lincoln Center. Eggplant "meatballs" as an appetizer were very tasty and light. Buffalo mozzarella and tomatoes was another good appetizer. Husband liked the special of squid ink pasta with seafood. Chicken Milanese with arugula was fine but nothing special. Overall, good value before a performance at Lincoln Center. Wines/drinks seemed relatively higher priced than the food."

  • "Quiet on a Thursday night. Great cocktail and bread. Entrees were good. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere."

  • "If you get there early, you have your pick of tables. Been twice for lunch, wait staff (Mikey) so eager to please and professional. Food is delicious! The fact that Lady Gaga's father owns the place may be a draw for some tourists, but as a New Yorker who often dines out, I say Joanne stands on its own!"

  • "have been here several times. The food is something that keeps you coming back. Unfortunately, the service is as pokey as ever. I'll go again..."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • " Friendly place, full of charm and perfectly placed in this large city. The staff makes you feel welcome and at home. Large portions nice selection. Yummy Minestrone soup. Mac & Cheese like mom makes, or better. Great pasta dishes. You won't be disappointed."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "Great food, great service, lovely atmosphere, friendly bar area...it all comes together nicely in what is becoming a true neighborhood institution."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "The service was good. The restaurant is pretty, but the food was very softly here. I had eggplant Parmesan and it was heavily breaded and loaded down with thick cheese. Quite tasteless. My friend had fish and it was swimming in oil and heavily salted."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Food was fantastic, great service and it has a very local feel."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Enjoyable. Very good for before or after a performance at Lincoln Center."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Our new favorite spot on tuesday nights. Thanks to the fabulous bartender, Chris, who was entertainment all in himself. The food is outstanding, the ambience is old New York. Get the meatballs, and get the Lasagne."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "Yes, we dined there because of Gaga & because we're huge fans. But that turned out to be quite irrelevant. The decoration is very nice & the restaurant is cosy. In winter I'm sure they light the fireplace which must be perfect. However, the quality of the food was disappointing. Not the best pizza we've tried and certainly not the best risotto. Moreover, there were no vegetarian options so i ended up having linguini with some fried vegetables that I could have cooked better in my kitchen. Last but not least, if you are looking for a quiet dining experience, you won't find it there. It can't get any louder in there, believe me. We visit NY frequently and we'd looked forward to dine at Joanne but I'm afraid we were very disappointed."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "The menu has a variety of simple and tasty Italian classics including pizza and a variety of salads and pasta dishes. The food was like homemade and the service was excellent. We sat outside in a small shady terrace. Very nice!"

  • "Very pleasant, causual dinning experience; only three blocks from Lincoln Center."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "I have been to Joanne's twice, the first time the food was quite good. The second time, we ordered the fresh pasta and we got NOT fresh pasta. It was regular dried spaghetti in a radicchio sauce that might have been ok with a little parmesan (which did improve it somewhat). I know I could make that better myself, because I would at least taste it to make sure it had some flavor. We pointed out to the waitress that the pasta wasn't fresh and she gave us a complementary dessert, but frankly neither one of our choices was very good. The ricotta cheesecake was ok, but had very little flavor, but the cannelloni tasted stale and was stuffed with unsweetened ricotta. I have had good cannelloni, this wasn't."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "My first time at this restaurant and found the food to be "just good" but not great or outstanding. Tables were tight and close to one another. Service was very good and the drinks were also very good. I'd be willing to go back to this restaurant again, but will probably try other restaurants in the area."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Unpretentious, with reasonable entrée prices. In this neighborhood, very hard to find. You'll get hit with prices of extras, like salad and dessert, drink prices. But if you enjoy well-prepared Italian food, not your red sauce variety, this is a cozy place to go either before a Lincoln Center performance or not. We were there early so don't know how noisy it gets later on in the evening."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Food was delicious, service was good, authentic reminded me of Rome."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We've been to Joanne's before and the food is quite good, however this past Saturday, the atmosphere was just frenetic. Perhaps they were short on staff, but our waitress was actually running back and forth. If you wanted more water or more bread, you literally had to snag someone in mid-run. It was not a relaxing meal. We left after we ate our main dishes and had dessert and coffee at a nearby bakery. Try it during the week."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "This restaurant survives on it proximity to Lincoln Center. Service was haphazard. Had to ask for waitress more than once. Had to ask for bread. Portions are small. Food is unremarkable. I had eggplant parm. 3 small pieces of eggplant. Huh? Friend had lemon chicken. While tender, portion was lacking. Shared a cannoli. Filling was gritty and not creamy. The best I can say is I've had worse"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "table did not seem very clean, food mediocre, pasta and pizza is what i would recommend only"
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "The food was good Italian. The restaurant was 2 blocks from Lincoln Center. They adjusted the service to allow us to get out in time for the ballet. The wine selection was good but not extensive. A lot of Italian wines were offered. They do have a very nice back patio for outdoor dining, but it was closed that day due to rain."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "The pictures on the website do not do it justice. It's much nicer in person. The back patio is really pretty and the room is cozy. The staff is very nice. I also saw Lady Gaga while there. It's really underrated. Perfect before ballet \ Lincoln Center."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Dinner was wonderful! Outstanding red velvet cake! The staff was excellent, nice and were interested in our visit there from out of town."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "This was an ideal place to come from Lincoln Center. We celebrated a graduation. There are many menu choices and I think the pasta dishes were the best. I have been here before."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "Got seated on time. Everything was average. Nothing was special. It was reasonably priced for the location. I would eat there again if I had something to see at Lincoln Center."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "Our waitress was not the most efficient waitress. It took about a half an hour after sitting down before our order was taken. After receiving our food, waitress never came back to check how things were. Maybe she was overwhelmed so I don't know if it was her fault or the restaurant for being understaffed. "
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "the caprese salad was excellent. the lemon chicken was okay. the broccoi rabe was excellent. very good service. attractive restaurant."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "Decent service, very noisy. Eggplant ball appetizer tasted like sawdust swathed in tomatoe sauce. Pasta special with truffles tried to make up for lack of flavor with heavy cream. Even the eggplant Parmesan was only fair. This place needs to add flavor to its menu & soften the noise. Excellent service. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Given wine list but told many were not available, including the chard we wanted. Tried the one chard they had....fruit punch!! Asked the server to let us go the liquor store and bring in a bottle, which she allowed us to do. It was the highlight of our meal. I ordered the romaine and tomato salad but was brought the caprese. Server apologized but I didn’t get my salad until after my hubby finished his app. The lettuce looked like came from a bag from the supermarket and was then thrown in the bowl . I had to dig under it to find the 6 pieces of diced tomato. The mains were ordinary and tasteless. Despite having a coupon from the restaurant for a free app, it wasn't worth it. Don’t bother ."

  • "This establishment serves good Italian food at reasonable prices. It's located minutes from Lincoln Center and is good for both pre/post theater dining."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Should improve the food for the price...way toooo noisy....encourage diners to keep voices down if they don't have the sense to do so... Nothing particularly impressive at all"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "We went for a lunch prior to the ballet. We were the only diners! The lunch menu is very limited although the pastas are very sharable. We shared two pasta dishes and a salad. I was surprised they "up charge" for "fresh, homemade" pasta...thus acknowledging the regular pasta is from a box! The pasta primavera was very tasty (with homemade pasta) although I could have been happy with less oil. The penne (not fresh homemade) with sausage and broccoli rabe was also good but again, a little less oil would have been my preference."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "The food was mediocre. It was hard to find any eggplant in the "Eggplant appetizer"... too much breading. We ordered the special Alfredo dish with mushrooms. It was tasty. But, they were very stingy with the sauce. It was hard to find the sauce in the dish and I had to ask for extra sauce. The cappaccino was awful. Service staff were pleasant and the restaurant is comfortable. But, it does need a good cleaning... the picture frames were dusty."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "Dined here before seeing a show at Lincoln Center. Quaint atmosphere, good food, reasonable prices, excellent service. Wine list was limited. Very nice neighborhood restaurant, and perfect location for pre-(Lincoln Center) theater dining."

  • "My boyfriend and I visited the restaurant the first night in NYC and loved it. Great first choice for our first time in the city!!"

  • "We eat at Joanne before events at Lincoln Center and other venues in the area. The service is dependable and the food is good. I recommend it."

  • "Wonderful as always....This has to be my 12th visit..always the food is predictable and so is the service.. I would recommend Joannes always"

  • "From the decor to the friendly staff to the fact that it's Lady Gaga's father's restaurant, Joanne Trattoria was beautiful and elegant and quaint. The food was absolutely delicious. I had the eggplant parm, which was a first for me, and it was awesome! Chris, my server, was very polite and friendly and funny and he worked the small dining area well between giving off specials to taking orders, everything flowed nicely. I will definitely come back and plan on bringing friends because it's so awesome!"
