Great brunchMy favorite neighborhood brunch spot. Good food, flowing mimosas, and friendly, attentive service. I have eaten here many times and it has been consistently good.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBeen back several times for brunch.Portions are not large but tasty. French toast is great and so is the shrimp pasta. Unlimited mimosas on Sunday brunch and the waiters are very attentive. Book ahead if possible. Small place that is pretty packed.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLido's Birthday Gift To MeMy experience at Lido's was great! The staff was attentive and kept my birthday brunch crew happy! The pitchers of mimosas kept coming and the food is really good! I had the salmon with poached egg...I so wanted to lick that plate...yummy. Thank you for a great ending to all my birthday celebrations. I will be back!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGood despite the noise levelGreat service, excellent food, and improved lower decibel level after the installation of ceiling panels. It's still loud though, and could use improvement. More panels?5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMCharming find in HarlemSix of us descended on Lido with only an online recommendation. This charming Harlem restaurant was delightful. Our cozy booth for six set the tone for a great dinner. The food is wonderful. The Parmesan Polenta Fries are a must. The pizza tarts were great. Our entrees were plentiful and delicious. The asparagus risotto was excellent. And, the dark chocolate budino with sea salt was the perfect dessert. If they can improve on one thing it is consistent service. The host who greeted us and sat us was our initial waiter and he was fun. Then service took a bit of a nosedive with mediocre follow up. We did share that feedback with the host.
Can't wait to go back to Lido, you should go, too!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and servicebut the noise level does not allow for any meaningful conversation. So while I said I would recommend it to friends it was based on the quality of the food and the service and I would let them know that it is not the place to "catch up" with old friends.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't wait to go back -- forCan't wait to go back -- for my third time in so many weeks.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMLido is such a terrific additionLido is such a terrific addition to Harlem. It retains its neighborhood feel without being boring. The food is consistently outstanding.

Coffee could have been refilled faster for brunch service.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMCame here after looking atCame here after looking at the menu, which made my mouth water! The food did not disappoint. Delicious! Nice, hip Manhattan crowd but not pretentious hipster-y, just real people. Will definitely be back.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!This place is great. Have absolutely no complaints.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat BrunchI traveled from Brooklyn to meet a friend from Westchester for brunch and it was a great place to meet up. The food was delicious. Service was great. The crowd was eclectic and fun. Literally, the only criticism I could say was that it was a bit loud in the restaurant. But other than that, I would go back when I'm in Harlem again.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food - terrible service.great food - terrible service. Our waitress had no concept of time or sense really. She asked us for our order when we didn't have menus. And when we asked for a few more minutes to make a selection, she took that to mean 15 min.
Food was good, cappuccino and tea was cold - didn't bother sending it back because it would have taken forever to return.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNeighborhood gemGreat service, lovely menu. We were seeing a friend's band play in the area and had no idea where to eat, so thanks to Yelpers for helping us pick Lido. Tried the ricotta and proscuitto appetizers, and then had the warm kale salad and the meatballs. Kale salad was really spectacular, which sounds silly considering all of those other delicious things. It was all really good. Only complain would be how close the tables are to each other, especially because we had the loudest family behind us. A grandpa dropping the c-word a few times sort of put a damper on date night. Still, I was in the area again, I'd definitely go back.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI have eaten there on severalI have eaten there on several occasions and they have not disappointed me yet.3/18/2013 12:00:00 AMI love this place and theirI love this place and their brunch is fantastic. The poached eggs with polenta is amazing - and even simple dishes like the side of grilled bread with jam are delicious. Lido is a great addition to this neighborhood - and I love that they take reservations for Brunch, which is hard to find in this city.
The only drawback is the noise level - I feel like any time I bring friends/family here it's hard to converse over our meal. I think one of the problems may be too many tables in the size space they have (by the end of the meal it was getting crowded and the waitress had to squeeze around chairs to get to us) - or it could just be that there's a lively crowd at the bar.
But it's worth it for the food.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
