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.

We keep coming back even though we live across the bridge. We love how comfortable Lido is and the food never disappoints. It feels like "our neighborhood" place.

Lido is my favorite brunch spot. I have been coming here for 5 years. The food is good, the service is good. The mimosas stay flowing. I always recommends Lido to friends & family.

Their bottomless brunch is probably the highlight of this restaurant. I was only upset when I called the restaurant to ask if they served steak and eggs for brunch and the hostess informed me that they do but when we sat down for our reservation we were told otherwise. This place does not carry steak on their menu. My bf ended up ordering meatball pasta and he enjoyed every bite so I guess that makes up for it but please next time make sure your staff knows the menu.

Lido is one of those neighborhood restaurants that you want to eat at even if you're not in the neighborhood. It's been consistently good since it opened. Italian food that's not stuck in a rut, but isn't too fussy either. Great salads, pastas, and good wine that's not over-the-top pricey. I had the muscles with white beans and red sauce and the muscles were tender and not too large, just the right size. You can be healthy or decadent, or somewhere in between, and have a great meal.

Overall my experience was great. Very friendly and accommodating staff. The food wasn't the best I've had but satisfactory for boozy brunch. Mimosas are more bubbly than OJ which is always appreciated. The restaurant is cozy and clean. They originally tried to tell us we met our 2 hour time limit after just one hour but I was able to give notice to the hostess who quickly corrected the problem. Seemed a little suspect since we did have a 12:45 reservation and time was called at 1:45 pm instead of 2:45 pm so my advice would be to pay attention to when your brunch begins to avoid being cut short.

Good food albeit being a little expensive if you intend on buying a three course meal. Good food, a bit spicy, but well served portions and a good selection of beverages and dishes. Nice ambient and good overall service.

My husband and I went to Lido on Christmas Eve.
Restaurant is well located in a beautiful part of Harlem. Restaurant was decorated for Christmas, nice jazzy Xmas music (not too loud). Staff was really nice and food was served very fast. Food was really good and portions were generous. Desserts were awesome. We had a great christmas eve dinner far from our family.

I would highly recommend this restaurant for lunch and dinner. Beautiful place and great food/drinks.

Not a family friendly establishment and as a result will never come back or recommend. The host asked us to leave the reataurant after our 18 month old screamed (1st time of the night); this while we were putting on our coats to leave after we had paid. She said that we startled her and that her guests think it’s too much for a baby to cry... we asked if anyone complained and she said no. Completely disrespectful host/owner and not worth it for families.

Seated in outdoor section which was way too hot plus sun was blinding for person in unfortunate seat.
Food delivered quickly and was good. Mimosa was very good.
Unfortunately they put ice cream on a cookie with the flour less chocolate cake. This order was for a Coeliac. The staff handled it well and didn’t charge us for it but it took away from what was an enjoyable day waiting to see how sick she would be. As she hadn’t eaten it and we were only dealing with cross contamination she wasn’t too bad.

A delightful little find off the main drag in Harlem. Codfish cakes brought a pleasing saltiness, roasted Brussels sprouts recognized back-up singer bacon is the real star, and salmon on top of a paste made of some bitter vegetable was an excellent combination. A sparse wine list needed a straight-ahead Chardonnay fallback but the obligatory signature cocktail list was excellent. While service lagged, it was attentive when it did show. The dining room shown brightly decorated with holiday lights. In short, worth getting off 125th.

Dinner for six on the enclosed patio outside in winter. Very quiet. Excellent service. VERY good food. 2 of the 6 of us had been there before, and everyone was pleased. Two had grilled salmon, which was excellent. 1 had lamb chops and loved them. One had a caesar salad for entree, and one vegetarian had an arugula salad. I don't think there were all that many vegetarian options, but 2 vegs were happy enough. Nice birthday sparkler, which I thought I was supposed to blow out (I wasn't) and the gelato was out of this world. Then we went to the Apollo for Annual Holiday Amateur Night - not amateurish at all - which was a perfect followup to the not-at-all amateur dinner.

Wait staff, not the best. He seemed annoyed. Hostess repeatedly open the door near our table in below freezing and BERY cold weather. We had to ask them to stop. We were so dumbfounded by this! Very strange. Lido was referred to us, yet we couldn’t wait to get out of there that night. Food was good, yet experience made our party of 4 feel as if we wouldn’t return.

Really enjoyed our meal. The small plates were all excellent as was the salad. Wine by the glass choice was also excellent. It was busy enough to have a good vibe, yet not so noisy that you can't have a good conversation. Service was attentive but not imposing, and timing was very good. Didn't feel rushed and didn't feel like we were waiting for anything. I'll definitely go back.

We came to Lido on a friend's recommendation, arriving early so it was not crowded nor very noisy. We were taken right to a table, and saw our waiter almost instantly. My friend had mussels and raved about them. I had the lamb chop dish, asked for and received it medium rare, nicely charred and absolutely delicious.
I have to add that the nearer WC was a treat, such a pretty wall treatment and so spacious.
I strongly recommend Lido.

Dinner was amazing and the drinks were excellent as well, the food came out quickly the service fell short!!

The Owner, a woman was at the front door, did not provide any personalization to us as I celebrated my good friend’s birthday. When I first came in the door, she was talking to another couple at the table near the door. It was raining, I had a lot of stuff to set up on the table so I could surprise my friend for her birthday. The owner, did not stop and say hello, do you need assistance and neither did her staff. A few guests who saw me decorating, complimented the table and even the hostess said, “Your friend is very lucky, this is so nice and thoughtful.” Still the owner never came over. After dinner, I made my waiter aware of my displeasure with the Poor customer relations. Sidebar, If you own a restaurant, you should be a people’s person who is warm and friendly with EVERYONE!! Say Hello, it won’t kill you!! At the end before I paid the check, the owner came over with ice cream and a sparkler to say, “Happy Birthday” and she left. No conversation at all! Very disappointed, with a restaurant that has wonderful potential.

Good cocktails, though like so many resaurants, the martini olives were forgettable. Terrific salt cod fritters. Great lamb chops. Why chefs must French lamb chops is beyond me, but the awesomeness of these chops made up for the missing bone meat and fat. Also, began seating our party of four at the appointed hour before all arrived instead of making us stand around.
