Italian
Lido’s menu is Northern Italian. The menu can be described as fresh, simple, and delicious. Flavors are layered so that each one stands out but does not compete with others in the dish.

The food is organic and local whenever possible and all poultry and meats are from farms that treat animals humanely.

The ambiance is modish but relaxed. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Delicious food, creative menu, though the menu doesn't change very much.

The noise level can be painful.

This was my daughter and my first time at Lido’s as we’re both Harlem residents. We love “brunching” and was determined to find a new place to chow down. We were kind of skeptical when we came across Lido, but we were not disappointed. The food as well as the service was exceptional. We’ll definitely be back!

I’m new to the neighborhood and wanted something different. It was nice but great. I was hoping to find a foot Italian restaurant in the neighborhood. The people were extremely attentive. Their Winter Menu was not that impressive.

Food is overrated. I had the black linguine with seafood. Except for the squid the seafood was almost nonexistent. Friends had the veal meatballs with pasta, she was not impressed with the pasta, another had salmon and the other had mussels which they were pleased with. We also had the bread pudding and the apple cake. Bread pudding was good apple cake huh.

Although the food and server were fantastic,
we arrived 10min early, and told our table was not ready unless we wanted patio seating. The restaurant was completely empty. We decided to wait at the bar. After 5min the manager passed by, we asked him why this policy is in effect, when no reservation has arrived yet other than us. He apologized and called it a “miss understanding” by the hostess. I have been in the restaurant/ hospitality industry for over 20 years. Call me crazy, I have always preferred to make money with the reservation that is already there, and re-work my floor, than potentially lose business.

Was at the restaurant about a year ago and really enjoyed it. Not so much this time. Empty but service was mediocre at best. Chicken burger was supposed to have a slaw with it; about a teaspoon. Alas.

I went to Lido with some friends. We were greeted so nicely, and the waiter was very attentive. the food was delicious, fresh and hot. They let us linger there for a long time and we had such a nice evening. The atmosphere is quite nice. The veal meatballs were fantastic as well as the bread pudding for dessert. I would definitely return.

This is a good neighborhood spot. We had no trouble making reservations, and were given a table in a heated outdoor area. The service was ok - but very short. We were disappointed that some past items we came to enjoy were no loner on the menu. I was disappointed with the black ink linguini - very saucy, little soggy - not much seafood. My wife enjoyed her chicken dish better.

Great neighborhood Italian. Food is tasty and good. Portions are good sized. The kale salad is excellent. Calamari is done perfectly. Entrees are quite good as well. Love that the kitchen is flexible with choices. Wine selection is ok. Could use some beefing up with some new varietals but that may just be my personal taste. Service is pretty prompt and am usually seated immediately. It gets busy on evenings and has a lively bar area. I go all the time because service is always consistent which is important to me. I dont always want the newest latest gastro pub experience and Lido fits the bill nicely for good, lively, tasty italian with plenty of seats and a nice neighborhood scene.

It is a good restaurant to have in Harlem. I like the inside, it is warm with no pretention. Now, If we compare the quality of the food to the price, it is overpriced. Also the dessert (bread pudding) was quite disappointing.

Enjoyed the meal, the staff + service could've been handled differently. The hostess brought our check before we could finish the bottle of wine we order and didn't care to acknowledge the fact that we wanted dessert + coffee. At which point I became upset over this small notion. We ended up ordering two espresso's after our meal and skipping dessert for fear of being rushed into consuming that as well. For my second time visiting I was disappointed again with the service of your staff. Perhaps having a portion of tables open saved for walk-ins could prevent this next time. Probably won't visit again, if there is one thing about dining out it's all about the EXPERIENCE and mines has been tainted.

I've been to Lido a few times and it's a great restaurant. On my most recent visit, unfortunately right as I started eating I found a hair in my food. The server was very apologetic and I got a new plate relatively quickly. I was disappointed, however, that nothing other than a "sorry" was offered to make up for such a gross occurrence.
