Arrived early for a 7pm reservation and was able to find a spot to wait at the bar. The host found us easily and we were seated in between two other tables (tight squeeze). Tried a new wine (delicious) and wheat grain bread was served. The portions were perfect and everything was cooked very well. No room for dessert but was given tasty cookies to go. Would definitely recommend to friends.

Great location especially if you are attending Lincoln Center. We had the cod and the shrimp dumplings both were really good, flavorful but light. Lot's of flavor and nicely plated. The place is intimate and nicely decorated. The staff is friendly and helpful. In fact, after being busy and unable to get to use right away, we were unable to order dessert in time ( attended the opera) and the manager gave us a full bag of large homemade cookies as an apology. I think they went above and beyond and it made a nice impression. I would highly recommend this restaurant and we will be back

Excellent food and service--this could not be better! Prices have risen lately and are not unreasonably high in my opinion. Room tends to be very noisy.

One of the few remaining seafood places, Atlantic Grill's menu is fairly small and its dishes, predictable. The oyster plata was poor, the oysters lacked taste and personality. A real disappointment. Its greatest strength is its location, at Lincoln Center but one wishes more.

I had a very nice brunch at Atlantic Grill. I had originally made a reservation for 2 and when we were joined by 2 friends, the restaurant accommodated us immediately. I was very impressed.

The meal was very good and included a cocktail and hot beverage, which made it a good value (especially in that neighborhood).

Our food was good, but were seated over 15 minutes late with a reservation. Since we were trying to make a concert at Lincoln Center that night, it made us and our waiter rush through our meal.

We selected this because of its proximity to our hotel and event that evening. Perfect in that regard. The restaurant was busy and tables close together. I wouldn’t label it a romantic dinner spot unless perhaps you go at an off peak time. The food was good but not over the top. Portions and wine pours were small. The server was friendly but curt and hard to understand. Not a place I will overtly recommend.

We’ve already recommended Atlantic Grill to some friends. Wonderfully prepared fish entrees coupled with great but not overbearing service. Try it. You won’t like it, you’ll love it.

We both enjoyed our appetizers and the sushi that we ordered. We then split a dessert between the two of us. We had a 12 noon appt and had to be out in time to cross the street to Lincoln Center. Our waitress was very good!

This time I got an unfriendly server -- no smile, no introduction, no niceties -- just a straight forward "what do you want" attitude. Which is surprising. He tried to rush us through our meal. Trying to take away a half filled wine glass and plates still filled with food. Usually servers are friendly and accommodating.

Fish is always perfectly prepared. I think that portion size of both mains and side dishes could be more generous for the price.

We were Seated promptly in the tastfully decorated dining room. The wait staff was efficient and very helpful. When I ordered my apoetizer, steamed shrimp dumplings, the waitress advised that it was spicy but said she could serve the peppers on the side which was perfect. Our entre, fish, was cooked perfectly and the dessert, a chocolate espresso mousse cake, was decadent! All in all it was a delightful experience and the noise level was such that we could easily have a conversation.
