Seafood was fresh but did not have much flavor. The rice in the chirashi was cold and a little hard and stuck together.

The food was delicious. However, as we were awaiting our desert, the waiter started to rather noisily take apart a table previously set for six.
I asked that he wait until we had finished dinner, as the noise was disturbing. He ignored me completely. Therefore my low rating for service.

The food was quite good and made us miss our east side lunch cation that had to close. Disappointing was our server who was brusque and inattentive. We asked for a quit table so they put us in the back room which is dark and dreary.

One of my favorite pre theatre restaurants. I go here often, because it is so close to my subscription performances at Lincoln Center. The food is consistently well-prepared and the wait staff makes every effort to accommodate theatre schedules. The ambience is most pleasing and the dining expeience a completes a wonderful evening out in our wonderful City.

Amazingly fast service if you are going to a show in Lincoln Center, and surprisingly good food. Grilled salmon is always excellent.

Highly recommended

Atlantic Grill Lincoln center is our number one restaurant. We live across the street and are there frequently. The food is top quality and consistent offering just the right variety. Curtis is an incredible host who always treats us with the greatest fondness and respect. He is the heart of the dining room. Whether having a light bite at the bar, or fine dining with family and friends, Atlantic Grill never lets us down. Your kitchen and wait staff are top notch... we are fortunate to have the Atlantic Grill in our lives!

Mother's Day & our dinners were brought to the table hot and cooked to perfection. My salmon entree was luscious. Generous portions including dessert. The waiter said they had 2000 (!!!!) diners over the day and evening and still everything was brought to the table correctly and the waiter was polite, friendly, appropriate, professional. He returned to our table to refill water glasses when needed. We sat in the back room where it is a tad quieter and we can hear our family members talk. The seating was v. comfortable and I had a glass of sangria - fragrant and delicious. We love this restaurant. Too bad the one on the UES had to close because another huge, block-long building will be constructed in its place.

I hate restaurants that take advantage of its location to serve mediocre food at inflated prices and use misleading menu descriptions to entice you to order more expensive items. For example, on a recent night out my wife ordered a "1 1/2 pound lobster" only to be served a 1 1/4 pound one at $52. Over my lifetime I have eaten hundreds of lobsters at restaurants and lobster pounds and purchased just as many at fish stores to know the difference between a 1 1/4 lb. ("red lobster" size) and a 1 1/2 lb. one. The rest of our meal - rainbow role, salad and sides - was on a par with joints serving the same dishes at half the price. If headed to Lincoln Center for the evening, be sure to eat elsewhere so you can enjoy the performance without steaming about your pre-performance experience.

Greeting at the door was friendly and seating was prompt. Appetizers were flavorful and very good. I enjoyed the sea scallops while my wife found the Salmon to be "Fishy" Don't ask me I gave up. Desert was great and we were out with plenty of time to make the show without being rushed.

A wonderful option near Lincoln Square. Waitress was lovely and helpful - made sure we got out in plenty of time for our show and made some great recommendations and an especially nice gesture at the end of our meal ( send us off with some cookies in apology for a very, very small oversight). Room is beautiful and energetic but we did not need to yell to have a conversation. Food was excellent.

Outstanding experience! I put a request for a quiet table for 6 in a couple weeks prior to our reservation. 3 Generation dinner for Mother's Day! We were seated in the quietest part of the restaurant. A booth in the beginning of the back room. It was perfect! The server asked if we were going to the theater - and we were not- so he did not rush us at all. He was a true professional NYC waiter! Matter of fact, we stayed at the table for over 2.5 hours. The food was wonderful. The server was able to accommodate special food needs. Portions were fair sized, presentation was superb, quality was excellent! Appetizers were delicious - especially the grilled sea bass sushi roll special and the beet salad. Desserts - amazing. Thank you for making this a perfect evening!

The meals were prepared to perfection, with entrees arriving hot, at the right temperature, prepared extremely well and flavorful. Service was excellent - no need to ask for refills of water, and before we could say that we were heading to a show after, the waitress initially asked if we had a curtain time to make. Well worth a visit. Fine dining.

I went to the Atlantic Grill to have their traditional "Fish & Chips" only to learn that the Chef had removed this item from the menu. I was very very disappointed to find that Fish & Chips had been replaced by a disgusting fish sandwich. Thus my rating f the Atlantic Grill has declined and also My return until Fish & Chips are returned to the menu!

I have never been there for Sunday brunch before and won’t go again. I love the place for dinner, always have, and will continue to be a regular.
My salad nicoise was put together by someone who probably hadn’t ever made one before. The waiters don’t have enough spoons and you have to ask for it. They are however efficient about getting you out for your performances.
