    My friend and i enjoyed our dining experience very much, except it was some what difficult to have a conversation because of the noise level. Everything else was perfect.

    Great interior but let down by very average food. Staff seemed to be very inexperienced which okay but they didn’t seem to be trying very hard! This could be a great venue but has a long way to go to get above even average.

    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.

    We live nearby and had not been in a few years but wow! They've truly upgraded the menu! Both entrees were incredible, great side dishes, with drinks and wine perfection! A bit pricey compared to other spots in the neighborhood but well worth it for a celebration / special occasion. . Service was also exceptional. Would def recommend.

    The food was really not good. All three of our dishes did not taste good. We got up, paid, and left without eating much. We went next door to Le Pain Quotidian to get food. Is was supposed to be a special night out, at an old favorite. It was not the old Atlantic Grill, just the name. Very, very disappointing. The space was pretty, though.

    Maybe it was the holidays and a staff of subs but there were so many service gaffes it was almost laughable. We did ask for bread 4 times, once even talking about it with the waitress, but did she just walk over and get us bread - no! Many small details but things you'd notice - we laughed but don't plan to return soon no matter how good the sushi turned out to be.

    We had a holiday show to get to, and we were running late with the kids in tow. The managers were so accommodating and got us in and out with a few minutes to spare! They even sent a belated birthday cake slice and candle for my daughter. Service was attentive and sweet with the kids. Restaurant was very full; it seems best to make a reservation to guarantee a table.

    The seafood dinner was excellent and not over priced for this convenient location to Lincoln Center. Actually, this restaurant has such an intersting menu with high quality items, we will return for a more leisurely meal so that we can explore the menu more thoroughly. All members of the staff were welcoming and their service was perfect. I cannot believe that it took so many trips to Lincoln Center before we found this gem.

    Service is outstanding overall. We enjoyed appetizers and dessert. The spicy chicken dish was good but not spicy. The curry shrimp we wished we wouldn’t have ordered. Shrimp had bad texture and the curry was lacking- we should have stuck with the catch of the day.
