    It has been known as Panevino and Arpeggio. Now, the restaurant in Avery Fisher Hall is the Lincoln Center Kitchen. Some familiar faces, but a totally new menu. Everything we tried was delicious and nicely presented. The menu is a bit more down to earth than that of the restaurant's predecessors.

    Lincoln Kitchen is the new name for the former Arpeggio restaurant in Avery Fisher Hall, Lincoln Center. It has a totally new menu, eclectic american rather than italian, but the same staff which is great. The prime rib on the new menu is simply outstanding. It is very convenient for performances. Gets crowded and hectic towards show time, so don't be too late in arriving.

    We loved Arpeggio; do not think the new menu or name are an improvement. The frittata was too large with too much potato. It wasn't light. Too little salad to accompany the frittata. The beet salad was a rip-off. Perhaps three tablespoons of beets for $13.00, are you kidding? Won't be back next time we're at Lincoln Center. Arpeggio was our favorite place pre-theater. Why ruin a wonderful offering? Also - we noticed many empty seats on Saturday at noon when usually it's fairly full.

    The food is quite good, sophisticated in preparation, and well presented. But it's high priced for the setting and there isn't a wide selection. After all, one is still in the lobby of Avery FIsher Hall. It is separated as its own room but the decor leaves something to be desired. There is a full wall of somewhat tacky mirrors, not too interesting to look at. The rest of furnishings are dark and not inviting. One wall has some nice prints but since it is a rectangular space, only one half of diners see them. It's very convenient for attending concerts and would be especially welcome in winter.

    It is perfect and very convenient before a concert at Avery Fisher Hall, especially for someone in a wheel chair.

    Went for dinner last night before a concert, and the new menu looked great! We started off with drinks I had their version of a Manhattan which was very good, and my date had a glass of sparkling wine from Virginia which was great! I had the deviled eggs which were expertly done with a piece of bacon on top. My date had the beet salad which I stole a bite of and it was very good as well with goat cheese mixed in. For our entrees we had the short rib burger and the salmon both were very tasty! The burger was cooked a perfect medium and was served on a fresh roll with pickled cucumber slices, onion, and tomato. The salmon was served with basil mash potatos and a salad. It was very good as well. I was only able to steal a small bite!

    On a brief visit, just one week after the restaurant opened, had a good experience. Service was quick enough to get us into the concert hall, ordering just appetizers. The menu has plenty to lure us back for a longer visit. The reds by the glass were unusually good. The main drawback is the inescapable concert-hall-lobby ambiance and noise, but that's the trade-off for convenience.

    It is not cheap by any means , but food is excellent and the portions huge at this new restaurant in the Avery Fisher lobby. The most convenient place to dine in Lincoln Center. Service was quick and courteous. If you are a "friend of Lincoln Center" you get 10% off although they don 't publicize it.

    Food was vastly overpriced. Food was not close to what it was called (ie, "blue" Mac&Cheese had no blue cheese in it, "Short-Rib Burger" was regular burger). Will not return...

    We were there on the night they had a 'media event.' We were the only ones present not attending the event. The guests were lavishly wined and dined and fussed over. We sat in a corner. No one at any time in the evening made any attempt to see how we were doing or what we thought of the new restaurant. If you want to create a buzz about a new restaurant, this was not the way to do it. When we spoke to the manager upon leaving, she seemed not to really care about our experience. Will definitely not return here.

    The new menu is short but appealing, wine list very reasonable, with choices of glass, half or full bottles to suit the variety of diners, particularly for those dining before an event. The pork cop was moist and well-seasoned,crab-cakes had more crab than filler, just slightly over cooked. Does "Helicopter Service" work as a term--a little too much presence, we didn't need someone coming by the table three times during each course; but, the staff seems new since the turnover and so they'll adapt. Noticed only one female staff among the many males, maybe just coincidence this time.

    Restaurant in the lobby of Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Ctr has been reconstituted as the Lincoln Ctr Kitchen. It's perfect for pre-concert dining. Some tables overlook the street while others are nearer the lobby area. Food was very good. Menu included a Pre-Fixe dinner including appetizer (salad or soup), entree and dessert. We had a delicious nice sized salad, not too over dressed. The salmon entree was served over tasty mashed potatoes. For dessert there was a nice selection, but we opted for a fresh fruit salad. We were surprised with a small cheese cake with candle because they overheard that it was my friend's birthday. An enjoyable experience overall.
