A word from Lido
Lido’s menu is Northern Italian. The menu can be described as fresh, simple, and delicious. Flavors are layered so that each one stands out but does not compete with others in the dish.

The food is organic and local whenever possible and all poultry and meats are from farms that treat animals humanely.

The ambiance is modish but relaxed. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Diner Reviews
  • "The staff helped us from the moment we made the Sunday brunch reservation (we changed our number of people three times) to the moment we got our check. The bus boys fantastically filled waters, and our server provided us options that served us and not her (e.g. offering to give us another one of her tables so we could dine in more space, offering us more mimosa pitchers way after we had finished eating). Everyone in our 10-person group enjoyed their food, and of course, the unlimited mimosas. The white trim adds a nice ambiance as well, particularly because its corner location provides nice lighting."

  • "I visited Lido during Restaurant Week. The hostess greeted us at the door with a smile and was very accommodating. My date and I decided to dine outside. Our waiter came around to introduce himself and take our orders. I ordered an appetizer which came out almost immediately. About 45 minutes later our entrees still hadn't come out. My date had to ask about our main course and we were told that the waiter would check on them. About 5 minutes later our waiter resurfaces and assured us that our meals would be out in "3 minutes". 10+ minutes later our food finally emerges from the kitchen. I've never been a fan of waiting 60+ minutes to eat. We were very ready to leave by the time our dinner plates were cleared. I took my dessert to go."

  • "The food was great. The cheesy garlic bread was to die for. Hands down best garlic bread ever. Not happy with three small pieces but nonetheless delish. Shortribs were good although I would prefer to choose a side rather than have it with palenta which I didnt really care for. Overall food was great!"

  • "... doesn't mean it SHOULD be. My overall experience of Lido is that they combine a lot of ingredients that are good individually, but do nothing to complement each other in the preparation."

  • "I have been to Lido twice & both times were AMAZING!! The ambiance is so warm & welcoming. The staff is so kind & courteous! The food is soooooooo amazingly awesome & dilectably scrumptious; you literally want to scream it's praises from the highest rooftops in the city & beyond!!! I can't wait to go back; it's my new favorite brunch spot, dinner spot; heck it's just my favorite restaurant!!!"

  • "We were on our way to Marcus Garvey Park for a play which happened to be very good. So, we booked a table AT lIDO. we shared 3 courses. The mussels were very different and very good. The Halibut was excellent and the grain it was served on was wonderful. The salad with warm pears was almost as good."

  • "Randomly found this restaurant on Yelp, and set a reservation for a low-key date night. I have spent time in North Italy, and the quality of the food at this restaurant genuinely surprised me at how good it was and the price point. The staff was very professional, friendly, and courteous. I heartily recommend this restaurant, food is great as well as their specialty cocktails."

The wait staff is really nice, very attentive, and the whole restaurant had a wonderful vibe. Defi would go again."

  • "The food at Lido was wonderful and I will absolutely return again. The one complaint I have is the service was almost too attentive. Plates were picked up before the entire table was finished eating and there was not a moment to breathe between courses. It made the dining experience faster than I wanted it to be and left me feeling like I was rushing to finish my meal when I wanted it to be leisurely."

  • "I took my dad there for Fathers Day and he loved it. The atmosphere is lively and the food is great. It's also vegetarian friendly."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We had brunch there to celebrate Fathers'Day. We enjoyed our food and the setting is very nice and cozy. Really good and crispy bacon too. But the cold attitude from the waitress really ruined the experience. She was overall unfriendly and cold, didn't respond to any of our smiles or attempts to warm her a bit to us. She rolled her eyes when we asked for ice for our iced coffee( she hadn't brought any). At first I just thought she didn't like us but then I noticed she was acting the same with other patrons. Too bad, we don't really want to come back after this."

  • "This is not for gourmets but with the exception of fancy restaurants in Manhattan, the Lido compares very well. The food is non-experimental but solid and good. The service is definitely better than what you could expect in Manhattan. The ambience is nothing special but has a certain style. What I liked best was the mix of guests and the ginger cocktail. This was my second visit; the first time was for lunch on a warm day and that was exceptional. The combination of outdoor seating without crowdedness gave this Harlem restaurant the flair of a European street cafe."

  • "Bottomless mimosa on a Saturday afternoon? What a wonderful way to brunch it! The menu choices were great, some worth the price (the sides are over priced), the food was good. The ambience is worth the early trip to Harlem. Book a reservation just in case for 4 or more!"

  • "Lido's a good neighborhood spot for happy hour. Our dinner last night was only okay. The garganelli with lobster was mediocre. The pieces of lobster were dry, not fresh, and the saffron sauce not tasty. The dish lacked seasoning, brightness, and depth. My hubby's short rib was also just okay, not savory or rich. Less meat, better prepared was what he craved. We won't be back soon."
