Usually the service and food are excellent, but Saturday night was awful. They got the order wrong, the waiter in the bar area could not handle the volume, and when we switched to a table, our meal still came out incorrectly. Also, the sushi, which is usually fresh, was terrible! I hope they clean up their act.

Very Big Very Noisy.
Just not what we were looking for before the opera. we were very nervous about their getting us out of there in an hour before our curtain so we only ordered one course, which took the available time.
my chilean sea bass a la plancha was overcooked and dry. the veggies were good but didn't make up for the fish. My husband's chirashi bowl was unremarkable. We wouldn't go back.

The restaurant was very full and the staff was clearly overwhelmed we arrived on time for 6 o'clock reservation and informed waitress we had8 o'clock curtain She avoided us first trying to get her attention so we could order and then avoided us when we wanted to check on the delay in our food we had just enough time to eat our meal when it finally arrived but no time for coffee or dessert the waitress was not apologetic and indicated we had enough time to eat first time in long time the waitress was only tipped 15%

We were there for a pretheatre dinner and loved the meal. I thought the service was upbeat, knowledgeable and unobtrusive. I enjoyed the roomy booth, especially in NYC. And loved that your team happily accommodated our seating request.
The food was delicious and the portions were really nice too. I didn’t leave hungry.
The waitress also accommodated my request for hot chocolate on a cold night, when it wasn’t on the menu! And we did not feel rushed even though the restuarant was very busy.
A job well done and we really appreciated it!
We will be back!!

The oysters were excellent . However the “jumbo shrimp “ and scallops dish was disappointing. The shrimp were not jumbo and the purées vegetables not very generous.
The service was excellent and we appreciated the quiet booth .

The food (bronzino) was excellent, as usual...as was the service. There was one "trivial" but annoying incident. As NY Philharmonic subscribers, we were entitled to two free desserts. We ordered the two desserts (we normally share one) but wound up paying for one because I had brought only my subscriber card but not my wife's...we did show TWO tickets to that evening's concert. The real annoyance was that the manager chose to not believe that we has two subscriptions and therefore two cards...a very poor business decision as well as non-trusting. What does that say about the rest of Atlantic Grill's administration?

We told the waitress before she took our orders that we had a play at 7 pm. This was at 5:30. She said she understood, but was still very slow bringing both the food and the check. Made for a less than enjoyable dinner.

Food was ok for a high volume restaurant, and service was quick and fine, but at times we felt as if we were on an assembly line for both service and food presentation, all kind of mechanical. It's proximity to Lincoln Center is it's real plus, but would not recommend if not going to the theater or symphony.

Great lunch choices--we had the prix fixe, with generous serving sizes and all delicious. Loved the chicken curry salad and tasty toasts. Beautiful service, friendly and professional--much appreciated.

So unexpected to find this quality near Lincoln Center. Every aspect is 5 Star. This is now the only restaurant we will go to when attending events at Lincoln center. Extraordinary

Linguine was cooked perfectly - can’t say that about many US restaurants. Branzino was light, moist and flavorful.

Food is almost always outstanding. The service, however, can be spotty-- from excellent/attentive to quite slow. Depends on the night...

It was dinner time. We were in the back room. Everything was perfect for everybody, although the place was crowded and service a little hard to find.

we had an early, pre-opera dinner at AG. we were extremely pleased with our time here. we began with a nice glass of cabernet and a manhattan and continued with the shrimp dumplings appetizer - wow -they were delicious!!! for my entree i had the salmon risotto dish, which also was delicious; so flavorful, perfectly cooked and served with excellent accompaniments! hubby ordered the scallop and shrimp entree, which was another winner! our waitress was extremely pleasant and attentive and the serves were also pleasant and professional. the ambience is comfortable and charming. love the exposed brick walls. by the time we were done the entire restaurant was full - which attest to the quality! after dinner we managed to squeese into a crowded bar for an after dinner cocktail. the bartender was very friendly, attentive and quick to take care of us, even being as busy as they were! wonderful meal, lovely restaurant and friendly, pleasant staff. we will certainly return!! thank you!

Slow service at pre theater dinner.
Sat in the back in a booth.
Nice quiet spot, but the front of restaurant is bustling.

Good as always. I wish the sushi rice was better. We had a very nice meal but the room was pretty noisy. We live the restaurant being close to Lincoln Center but still feeling special in its own right.
