    Lovely ambiance and excellent service. The brunch items were plentiful, complete with side dishes of salad, potatoes, and a complimentary bread basket (rare these days). It's pricy, but so is everything in the Lincoln Center area.

    The service, staff, ambience, management, location, welcoming atmosphere…. none of this could have been better. It’s a lovely establishment with lovely people. Truly. Alas, the food was not what one would have expected. Just badly prepared and presented. less than mediocre. Perhaps it was the chef’s night off.

    We dined at The Atlantic Grill before a 7pm show at Lincoln Center and everything was delicious. We ordered from the “pre-theater dinner menu” which offered several options. I had the Caesar salad, salmon entrée, and crème brûlée and everything was delicious. Service was wonderful as well.

    Wonderful 3-course pre-theater meal before 6:30pm for $59. Pumpkin soup (contains some cream) and Salmon were fantastic. I left something behind at the table, returned 2 hours later, and they returned it to me.

    As the evening progressed, there were fewer people, and so easier to have good conversation. The kitchen made my appetizer to my specifications (they take food allergies and preferences seriously) and I was happy about that. It was fun and delicious.

    First visit since the refurbishment. Liked the smaller, more intimate, space as compared to cavernous main dining room pf the past. Food was top notch as usual in the fish department. Service fine. Good spot for pre or post anything in Lincoln Center.

    When my wife and I lived in Manhattan from 1995 thru 2017 we ate at Atlantic Grill very often, great food and all around great place. This past Saturday we were in the city and went back, and were very disappointed. Must be new owners or something. We were on of 2 table occupied for an hour at brunch time. Years ago it was difficult to get in. It was nothing like it used to be, service was mediocre, even though there were only 5 people on the whole restaurant. I do t see it lasting, it was a shame to see a place go so downhill. Food was ok, but not like it used to be.

    The service was good until it wasn’t. We ordered 2 spaghetti over lobster. Only for us to have half a lobster embedded in the spaghetti. The presentation was horrible, it looked like sloppy Joe on our plate. About 30 minutes later we saw the same meal we ordered presented the way it ought to have been served to us. Smh. We called our waitress over to point out the obvious segregated service. She said, “You had to choose that option of presentation” to which I replied, “that option was never given to us” she insincerely gave a flippant apology to which I asked to speak to the manager. The manager came with her version of what transpired and immediately started to defend her actions, except that we made it clear to the manager that she lied about what happened and is trying to blame us for her folly and she changed her story. We assured the manager that we had half a lobster and we even took a picture of the meal prior because that’s what we do before we eat, dah! Well, the manager basically gave us our dessert for free, to appease us, but it’s what happened after that left us not coming back or recommending this place to anyone. The waitress completely stopped talking to us and stopped waiting our table. We were there an additional 45 minutes. She never checked on us she wouldn’t even look at us. Upon feeling that we were no longer welcomed, I got the manager’s attention and asked for the check. I still left a $43 tip against my party’s objections. After having left the restaurant to attend our show at Lincoln Center, and thinking about what transpired, I regretted living the tip. We actually heard the “white” table behind us order the spaghetti over lobster in the same manner we ordered ours and said, she made a good choice unfortunately, that’s when we realized we got different results aka service and presentation. SMH in 2023, sad.

    My wife said it was the best Salmon she ever had. First time We were here but definitely will be back. The calamari appetizer was delicious as were the guacamole and plantain chips. The guacamole needed some additional salt but the chips were nicely seasoned so it worked out. My only recommendation is that they provide salt and pepper on the table for those of us who need more seasoning. All in all, a great evening meal out before our Broadway show.

    The Atlantic Grill is my "go-to" spot for pre-Lincoln Center events. We were, as always, pleased with the friendly, professional service and the lovely lunch. Another important feature is that we extended our lunch for over two hours (!) and at no time did we feel rushed or unwelcome. Thank you, as always, for being our favorite spot in the neighborhood!!

    I was originally disappointed that this Atlantic Grill isn’t the same as the one that used to be on the Upper East Side. I was hankering for the Nori Tuna dish they served. Seems this Lincoln Center location may be different owners with a totally different menu. I did order the curried shrimp dish & it was delicious. Staff is very attentive in a beautiful setting. Great dinner stop near Lincoln Center or a visit to Dizzy’s Club.

    Our only problem is the size of the portions. We were required to order four different dishes. The portions were not suitable for anyone except a person who is used to consuming vast amounts of food, or who has been starving for a week. So we took about half of the food home. That is not the restaurant experience one hopes to have in an upscale restaurant. If you are going to ask people to pay good money and require them to order various plates, then make them small with expensive ingredients, not huge and off-putting. The hostesses and waitress and others were extremely pleasant and we have no complaints whatsoever about them, or the ambiance, which is quite charming. Only the amounts served.
