Used to love this place, but it is not what it used to be. Food had become mediocre. I had poke there before and it was delicious, now for the same price it is mostly brown rice and not much fish. Grilled octopus was also average. Even bread that used to be delicious there is chewy, like if someone took stale bread wetted it and put it back in the oven. Disappointed.
I eat there often, and the quality and ambience are consistently high level
The Maître de sat us in the back room, which was perfect. Quiet, and we could hear ourselves talk. The server asked if we were going to Lincoln Center and we finished dinner in time, without rushing, and made our curtain. My friend is vegan and loved her Branzino a la plancha and I, not the world's greatest fish lover, really enjoyed my Cod piccata. There's a very nice selection of wines by the glass.
Unprofessional service.food not cooked to requested doneness. Lousy bread. Overpriced. All in all mediocre. Great location but poor value
Terrible service and food was cold and could never get the waiters attention
Wait staff was excellent and quickly brought us soup of the proper temperature, after the server brought tepid soup. A mistake taken care of quickly and without any comment other than an apology, is just fine with us. The room was a bit warm for my taste, but overall quite nice. Good value at Lincoln Center.
We love this place. Always a lovely welcome, excellent service and wonderful food. We come back often.
Food there is always OK but not wonderful. Nice atmosphere. Before-theater service can be slow.
Very crowded, long wait for waiter and for food. Kitchen clearly overwhelmed.
Too many tables squeezed in. Food okay when it finally came, but not worth the trouble.
Brunch is delicious, however, one person at our table received ingredients in her omelette she specifically asked NOT to put into her food. The waitress was pleasant and asked if she wanted another meal. By that time we were all eating, so she did not want to wait. She should NOT have. Even charged for her meal.
Generally great service, fresh food. Highly recommended.
Wonderful fish in every variety (sushi, shellfish, grilled fish, great accompaniments as well) in very comfortable surroundings. Great place pre/post theater or even for just a nice night out.
Reliable good food
Lovely restaurant - delicious meal - tables way too close together. I had to listen to a man espouse his support of Trump and the RNC for half my meal ..,
Food was good but service was slow and spotty.
Two of us arrived and ordered. Ten minutes later, our third person arrived, ordered, and her meal was brought first. Ours arrived some minutes later.
We eat here often before attending Lincoln Center performances. The staff is helpful, the food is generally very good and the room is pleasant. We had a slight problem with our food this time and the staff was extremely gracious and helpful to fix the problem.
This is as restaurants should be. It works like a well oiled clock. The food is excellent, the drinks are excellent, the service is impeccable, prompt, polite, charming...the thrum of voices never rises above...civilized. Always a pleasure.
Great food and service. Close to the Met Opera. Always reliable.
Perfect place for drinks and or a meal, great menus and great service
very good food and service . no rushing pre theater
The best place before Lincoln Center events.....Curtis please never leave...
The prix fixe lunch here is one of the great bargains in town. The new additions to the menu in the past year are adventurous and terrific (i.e., the kale salad), Dinner is a treat as always.
We lobe this place, best simple menu w some real creativity hidden in the dishes. 3 rooms, all of different energy levels so, something for everyone.
Had to fight to have our several requests for a specific table honored, even though the restaurant was not even half full. The two hosts at the entrance are nasty and difficult. At the other extreme, our wait person, Jennifer, was/is exceptional in every way - friendly, superb, thoughtful service-always with a smile. Food was magnificently presented, creatively prepared and memorably delicious.
We all agreed on that the decor and layout of the tables were nicely done. My husband and I had the branzino, our children ordered the salmon and the arctic char - all four entrées were cooked at the appropriate temp. The sides were ok. The truffle cookies we ordered as a small bite to go with our expressos weren’t anything special and did not taste fresh. Overall a good restaurant, a bit on the pricey side.
The food was really good. Their branzino was perfectly cooked and plated. Highly recommended.
Good experience. The service was a little slow but the food was excellent,
Went for pre-theater (before Opera) and had the best Beet Salad (served with Buffalo Mozarella) and Arctic Char (perfectly cooked medium rare) I've ever had. I tasted my partner's Lobster Bisque which was super delicious as well. Seafood never disappoints at this place. Also had an amazing coconut rice pudding with fruits to finish off the meal. They are fast and can get you out in an hour; however, you would never feel rushed. It's a bit pricey, but worth it for the convenience to Lincoln Center and good food, if you are into seafood and have a performance to go to across the street.
We eat here often. The seafood is fresh and delicious. It is our go-to place for fish and shellfish. We like to sit in the back room as it seems to be a little quieter. I know we will be back.
This dinner was extremely good and highly enjoyable. A friendly, lovely restaurant.
Maitre D would not honour my open table reservation because he has no record of it being made. Finally after much heated discussion the manager sat us. Very frenetic at the door when you come in. We were led to a very poorly situated table when there were several in the middle of the room available. Won’t be returning soon.
Atlantic Grill is always a treat- reliable in both food and service. It starts at the front door- the maitre ‘d is fantastic. The octopus appetizer is excellent. I like the ambiance best in the front dining room but the back room is a little quieter and good for a business meeting.
Food is good, location is great for pre-theatre for all ali comb Center venues. Service was smooth and lacking this time.
Excellent service, ambiance, and food.
Great time. Food good. Service good-wish I could remember waiters name he was awesome
The Maitre D knew all the start times for Lincoln Center. He saved the couple in front of us, who thought their performance started at 7, when it started at 6pm.
The sushi was delicate and professionally made. The drinks were well made. The other customers are good looking, a more sedate crowd, at least pre-theater. We would return again, and recommend others so so regularly.
Everything we ate was wonderful. The special Caesar salad with cauliflower was a thrill for the palate. The shrimp were sweet and cooked perfectly. And the dark chocolate sorbet was a really wonderful end to a delicious meal.
Spotty service. Good food.
I've always loved this location of Atlantic Grill. The food is fresh and the service is great. Haven't been there in almost a year. Loved the shaved vegetable Salad with Shrimp added.
