Lincoln Center Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
Our table was adjacent to the security scanners for the people attending a performance. I should have requested a different table. The restaurant would do well to find a way to have separation from the scanners. The food was quite good. The prix fixe menu is a good value. The service was indifferent at best. My coffee order was initially missed and the coffees were delivered without spoons
My wife and I eat here often, pre-Philharmonic. The menu changes, and we recently lost my favorite ( an excellent, lightly sautéed cod filet), but in its place came a wonderful pasta with plenty of lobster pieces. We are always pleased with the food, and even more so, with the service. We are somewhat handicapped, but with the wonderful staff's assistance, it s almost unnoticeable. In good weather and bad, this is a great place to eat.
Average service, average food, Manhattan prices. Steak was a bit tough. Chicken was obviously pre-cooked and warmed, a bit overcooked. A reasonable choice if you are have tickets to a Lincoln Center event and want to be close, but there are better options nearby.
We chose to go there after seeing Shen Yen because of its location to the theater. We were seated immediately, our excellent waitress came over right away but didn’t rush us to order. The restaurant is very attractive and pleasantly quiet! Our dinners arrived promptly and the food was very good. We will definitely return.
Very friendly but respectful service with orders coming swiftly. Our waitpersons were very willing to give meaningful advice about specials and other items. Very good food, not innovative, but the steak looked like a slab of meatloaf. It was in fact cooked exactly to order, flavorful and tender but looked so unappealing: no glistening caramelized exterior, a matte finish.
To be honest, I only chose this restaurant because it is actually inside Lincoln Center; it was a bitterly cold day, and we had an early curtain. I was happily surprised, then, to have quite a pleasant experience there. Our waitperson was friendly, helpful and engaging, and the food was fine. They are clearly practiced in getting diners served and to a performance on time; both courses seemed to almost magically appear once we had ordered. Lobster bisque was flavorful and contained actual pieces of lobster, but while it would have been enhanced by toasted or buttery croutons, instead it came with some cubes of stale white bread tossed in. Short ribs, an evening special, were tender but a bit dull, and the accompanying "truffled" mashed potatoes didn't live up to their name. We were quite early; as the restaurant filled, the noise level rose dramatically. The convenience factor is still a strong selling point; I'd return for a pre-performance meal, but would order judiciously, perhaps sticking with snacks and starters.
Wonderful convenience on a bitter cold night going to hear the NYP. Disappointed an item you kept on your menu on-line was not available and hadn’t been for over two years. Server said they have tried to have you change the menu several times but you have not. Please update for all of us.
Lincoln Center Kitchen has un unbeatable location, for pre-concert dinner. But the food and service could be better. This time especially was disappointing. My squash and barley risotto consisted mostly of barley. We ordered two coffees, only one was served, had to chase the host to get the other cup.
Choice on menus limited. I had spaghetti with clams, tasteless , watery, minced clams barely detectable. Service below average but price exorbitant for such poor quality and presentation.
Waiters were attentive but scarce but we got lots of water.
Coffee at 2:50 was excellent.
Dinner was good. Especially the lobster bisque. Beet salad was ok, wouldn't order again. Bloody Mary had no citrus but was tasty otherwise. Server was attentive and very pleasant. Restaurant decor is understated and lovely. Will visit again. Overall good value compared to other restaurants in the vicinity of Lincoln center. Hostesses were delightful.
We chose the LCK on a snowy winter night before a concert in the same building (David Geffen Hall) to avoid going outside, so out expectations were modest. But the service and food were far better than expected. Ed's Crabcake and dayboat scallops were the equal of Atlantic Grill or Blue Ocean, the chopped salad was great; the apple cobbler and Creme brulee deserts were excellent.
This is a terrific restaurant at which to enjoy dinner before attending any of the events at Lincoln Center. It is ideally located, with excellent food, great service, a full-service bar, and beautiful views of the Lincoln Center plaza. There is always excitement in the air, because your presence at Geffen Hall makes you feel like you are embarking on a wonderful evening in New York City. But the noise level is never loud, and the guests are all ages, gracious, from all over the world.
The view of Lincoln Center plaza is wonderful and it's so convenient for going to a show there. food is good but nothing spectacular and the service was very good. We were glad we chose since our show at the Vivan Beaumont was at 7 p.m. so we had no rush to be on time.
While the service was good, the food was terrible. I ordered the Eggs Benedict and thought the Hollandaise sauce seemed spoiled. My daughter and mom had pancakes. Their pancakes tasted dense and chewy with very little flavor. The sausages they added on top were literally inedible.
The best part of our Brunch was the bacon!
