Wonderful place to dine with friends. Six of us shared small bites & appetizers. So delicious, various choices, and excellent drinks. ( I especially raved about the Ernest Hemingway daiquiri!)

Lido was always *one of* my favorite restaurants, but it is now simply my favorite. One reason: CONSISTENCY - in quality of both the food and service, even during the difficult lockdown period. Also, a great mix of people, good all around vibe and the music isn’t loud.

not a fan of the neighborhood, too many tourists, With that said the food was excellent and our waitress without peer. Her knowledge of the menu, her suggestions and everything about our interaction and conversations with her were awesome. On the way out when we expressed our appreciation of the server with the manager, he smiled. Obviously not the first time he had heard this

This place was wonderful!! We had a huge party but the staff was so kind and accommodating for us. The service was also really fast. And, of course, the food—it was AMAZING. Everyone was super happy. The plates are a little pricey, but they definitely do not skimp out on portions. If you are looking for a nice place to eat I highly, highly recommend El Conde.

We ate here twice because the pasta is some of the best we have ever had...steak was phenomenal...cocktails and wine are good also...creamed spinach was incredible...service is very attentive...however, it like going to your grandma's house and they are going to keep the food coming (and upselling you)...definitely will be on our list to return but probably with a more concise selection

Honestly, I wasn't expecting a great meal, the Irish are not known for their food. But actually it was DELICUOUS! i had a great spicy chicken Caesar Salad & loved it. Hubby said his salmon & veggies were perfectly cooked. Our friend had sliders & a side salad & cleaned his plates as well. The prices are more than reasonable, especially for NYC. If you are hesitating, don't. This was one of the best meals we had in NYC & you couldn't beat it for value.

We did the Havana High Life experience and it was worth every penny. The head bartender took his time to match us with each drink and fully explained all the choices he made. I am a cigar novice and my guest was not, but he treated us both equally and respectfully - super friendly! The food came out all at once, and the deviled eggs and steak were to die for. The cherry on top was the chocolate lava cake for dessert… easily the best I’ve had in the city. The bar wasn’t too loud or crowded and the smell was very understated. It didn’t stick to clothes at all. I’d recommend this to anyone, but especially for people who are looking for hole in the wall spots with unique experiences (where they’ll be treated like a VIP).

The pizza is amazing. I love pizza and so we have been here three times in the past two weeks to eat three kinds of pizza. All very delicious. Authentic Neapolitan style. There are hardly any vegetables on the menu so it’s hard to have a balanced meal, but if you ask they will give you a side vegetable dish. My husband loved the grilled squid and shrimp.
