We had a wonderful tastingWe had a wonderful tasting menu dinner before a performance at Lincoln Center. All of the courses were imaginative and delicious. We'll definitely return.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMTelepan remains the very bestThis is without doubt the finest restsurant on the UWS. The prix fix two or t hree course lunch remains a formible bargain. Two of our group had the spring aalad whic was declarrd delicous.one in our party had the similarlt scrumptious asparagus salad and I had thr home smoked trout on chive blini which I think is perfect and should be sold by the pound. The entrees we chose were two broiled trout excellent. The other two of us had the extraordinary chicken with spatzle. The dessert eaters raved about the pineapple fritters. Go if you can.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMClassicalways a delicious meal but it was missing its "buzz" might not be the hot spot it used to be but food never disapoints6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful pre-theater dinnerWe keep re-discovering this wonderful restaurant. A beautiful room, well-spaced tables, terrific service. We had an excellent chicken and an out of this world summer truffle pasta as mains, and really fine appetizers as well. The value proposition is excellent--really good food at moderate prices.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredible dinnerMy family and I brought my mom here for her birthday dinner and it was just great. We got the four course tasting and were all blown away by our selections. They also brought out a cookie dish with a candle for my mom and she was really thrilled and surprised by that. Our waiter was always nearby, friendly, and very helpful with our many questions.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMTiny bit disappointingThe decor needs refreshing and so does the menu. While the fresh pea soup was to die for, the striped bass was made too complicated by its side dishes. I don't love pasta or sausages, so I found the menu oddly limited.
The service is superb. I think brighter light, more color, flowers and more art might help a lot. It's a little depressing.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMTry the S'more!Dinner was delicious, but the highlight of the meal was the s'more dessert. I would definitely go back for that.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMI found it to be well lit(whatI found it to be well lit(what a pleasant surprise) relaxing looking design and most of the food was tops. Only the dessert, unfortunately was too sweet and I'd recommend it only for children. The waiter was very curt and unfriendly at first, possibly assuming our advanced age would affect his tip or who knows?, but after we ordered drinks he got friendly and pleasant.
I've already recommend it and plan to eat there again.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food. Dull atmosphere.Enjoyed brunch with very inventive and delicious choices. Service was "invisably" perfect. Only disappointment was the decor and atmosphere. Extremely simple room lacking any joie de vie.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing restaurantTelepan is just an amazing place
I really recommand it
The food is just amazing with a perfect service
Perfect restaurant for a romantic dinner6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMMy cousin and I had the best mealThe place is a gem. We had fine service. I had brook trout and a poached egg atop spring greens and tender mushrooms. It was delicious. It was not crowded. We didn't have to wait.It was not in a crowded area. we will go back there.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA gem near Lincoln CenterTelepan offers an interesting menu which some unusual dishes. I had the pea pancake, roasted trout and s'mores, all done to perfection. The service was attentive and efficient. We did not feel rushed at all despite having only one and a half hours for dinner prior to our 8pm performance at Lincoln Center. A must try in the Lincoln Center vicinity.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious tasting menu witpairingsWent with my husband, son and his girlfriend this past Friday night. We all had the tasting menu with wine pairings. We all enjoyed everything we had. Two small complaints 1)!thought fish was overcooked a bit and 2) cookies I had as dessert were boring. Everyone else had s'mores dessert that was a much better choice. It was a pricey meal but you get what you pay for.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, greatAs usual - Telepan is great. First time going for the Sunday night burger - what a great deal. The onion rings are amazing. We got the Smore's dessert which was fantastic too.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatGreat food, great chef and a great place. A great overall experience.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent dining experienceThis was our second dining visit to this Lincoln center area gem, and we were not disappointed. It will not be our last!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOUTSTANDINGTelepan is one of my favorite restaurants in New York City. The food is impeccable and MOUTHWATERING. The lobster bolognese is heaven.
I want to acknowledge the hostess whose grace and charm added greatly to my family's experience.
My mother left a bag under our table/booth. The hostess called us immediately and proceeded to stand on the street with said bag until our cab came back around the corner. It was the smoothest drop i've ever experienced.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful menu with interestingWonderful menu with interesting food choices of high quality.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply MarvelousWe took our friends to telepon for their birthdays. We all had the price fixed dinners and had a fabulous dinner and evening from AtoZ. The food was prepared and presented fantastically. The server ice was attentive and very personalized.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food, but ExpensiveWe'd return, but a bit pricey, especially the wine menu. Portion sizes were on the smaller side.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe came for early dinner beforeWe came for early dinner before theatre. The hostess was fabulous making us as well as others following feel right at home. Our table was a little problematic as we faced another couple and probably could have easily joined them for dinner. Our server was great, very helpful but not pushy. Oysters and salad were great starters. Halibut perfectly done. Pineapple upside down cake was to die for. We loved every second of the meal. Can't wait to go back5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Lincoln Center find!An excellent addition to the Lincoln Center dining scene. Comfortable, fine service and Italian-inflected, varied menu. Excellent wine list. And they will get you out in time for your curtain.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent for a small celebration.Brought my wife and girls. It was a special "Mother's Day" brunch. Nice choices, well presented and delicious. I would go back for dinner some eve. The best was the bread basket filled with excellent goodies.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMYes. And It CountsGreat food, great service. Telepan is the restaurant you've been looking for but cannot seem to find. The frequency of our visits keeps growing, and the quality of the experience remains top notch. High level consistency and excellence is hard to find. The restaurant's configuration also allows for a wide range of dining experiences from the romantic dinner for two to the celebratory dinner for eight.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful food and serviceIn a nieghborhood with a dearth of really good restaurants, considering it is the home of Lincoln Center, Telepan is a gem. Always reliably excellent, creative, unpretentious and friendly. It's my go-to place for specail occasions.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful food.Waiter couldwonderful food.Waiter could have been a bit friendlier. Noise level is generally fine but we sat near a man with a very loud voice. Great for Lincoln Cneter5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful West Side RestaurantWe had a wonderful dining experience at Telepan and will be sure to go back as often as we can.
The food was great, interesting, and very well presented. The service was also excellent.
We have not had better food anywhere on the upper west side.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently goodThere are not that many interesting restaurants around Lincoln Center focusing on fresh market meats, fish and produce beautifully prepared in a Nouveau American fashion. Telepan has stood the test of time. I've eaten here on numerous occasions when pre-Opera was the order of the day. I have never been disappointed. Sometimes I don't have dessert, which is a mistake. Desserts are fabulous.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMClassy, delicious, great serviceThis was my second dinner at Telepan, this one on a weekday evening at 7:00. Food is delicious and creative. Service attentive and friendly. A place in which you can hold a conversation without straining. I'll keep returning. My daughter loves it, because she's a pescatarian (vegetarian who eats fish and seafood, but not land animals), and she finds plenty to order here. It's pricey, but well worth it for a nice evening out.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food-- relaxed atmosphereExcellent seasonal choices like the pea pancakes in spring. Some appetizers, like the sausage, and some desserts, like the cheeses, can be shared. Unusual plus: all or most tables for two are well located, not lined up and crowded in. Service is professional, pleasant and friendly.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was excellent,The service was excellent, although I can't understand why they tried to dim the lighting for a Sunday brunch! I would prefer some plain rolls as well as the sweet selection and more butter would be good. The food was very good. Definitely one of the best places on the West Side for brunch.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMRomántico getawayAn oasis full of tranquility and pampering for foodies in NY5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely visit, will return.Our foursome enjoyed its first visit to Telepan last week, for a Saturday brunch. The brunch menu does not carry standard breakfast items. It is more a lunch menu that incorporates eggs in a few dishes. It is an interesting and tempting menu, however, and we all found plenty that appealed. The food was good, if more intensely seasoned than expected, and attractively presented. The service was very good: professional and friendly. The space is inviting and elegant. There are acoustic tiles that are tastefully incorporated into the ceiling decor. I wish more restaurants would follow this welcome example. After all, the ability to converse easily with one's table mates much heightens the dining experience. To sum it up: Telepan does it right.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGood local DININGInteresting if a little pretentious menu, but results are better than interesting.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always enjoy ourselvesWe always enjoy ourselves at Telepan. From the moment we walk in the front door until saying good night, everyone is happy, smiling, helpful. Our waiter, Ben, was outstanding. He knows his food and his customer. Our biggest problem is deciding what to choose! Everything is delicious.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistentMy favorite place, love the signature 'smoked trout appetizer'. It literally melts into your mouth. Everything on the menu is excellent.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial !While I think of it as ' an occasion' place with a wonderful tasting menu....it is always full of dinners with similes on their faces . For anyone who likes, enjoys, appreciates food.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding service, top qualityOutstanding service, top quality ingredients excellently prepared, large & varied menu
exceptionally quiet for a NYC restaurant-- just about my favorite place to go for Sunday brunch4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant is elegantlyThe restaurant is elegantly casual with attentive and proficient staff. Food was very good with the smoked trout appetizer and the ricotta agnolotti cacio e pepe particularly noteworthy. Definitely plan to return.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI took a friend to celebrateI took a friend to celebrate his birthday. It was a first for both of us. We took advantage of the tasting menu. It was one of the best dining experiences either of us has had recently. The service was top notch as well. We both agreed that it was going to be a "top of the list" restaurant for special occasions.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely OUTSTANDING!!!!!!Absolutely OUTSTANDING!!!!!!

Highly recommend.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe took our waiter's recommendationWe took our waiter's recommendations on many dishes and every one was excellent. The burrata ravioli was amazing and the pork entre (for which Telepan is well known) was delicious.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMComfortable, well-appointedComfortable, well-appointed room, without the tables being cramped. Preparation of every bit of food was excellent. Dishes were interesting, but not over-the-top. The wine list showed real care in assembling the choices. Service was always attentive, but not intrusive. High-end dining; a bit conservative, but not reactionary.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely room, competent andLovely room, competent and friendly service wit very good food. Heritage pork sampler (4 cuts) was outstanding.Comprehensive wine list with many reasonably priced bottles.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMI love brunch at Telepan andI love brunch at Telepan and have been there too many times to count... though this time I was disturbed that me and my guest were seated less that 18 inches away from two extremely talkative women who lingered through our entire brunch time, and they had already completed theirs when we arrived. The entire time we were there, there was an empty table for two right next to us on the wall which would have separated us at least a few more feet. So, I was very disappointed that they didn't seat us in that empty space or even move us . It was great food, but not good environment.
I'll definitely be back, but will insist on being moved if next to rambunctious people!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat brunch experience.Went for brunch. The "Westsider" and "Fallen Pancakes" we're delicious. The service was excellent.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMLots of options for brunch.Lots of options for brunch. Could do the pre-fix menu or order each item off the menu. the waiter encouraged the pre-fix, felt it a better value. We did not feel at all rushed. Food came quickly and hot and it was fine to sit around. I would return. The pancakes, French toast and omlet were all a hit.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
