The service was surprisingly slow. It took unreasonably long to get our ordered dishes to the table. When it finally did arrive, it was very tasty.
Beautiful evening-pre opera meal.
Would have preferred less attentive staff-but that’s just us! They really tried their best!
Very pleasant experience, attentive service and excellent food
The food ingredients and how they were presented on the plate were excellent. One exception, the venison medallion disguised the end cut with cotton string left on my portion. The manager comped the desserts, but the total difference in the bill was less than $6. Staff is inexperienced and not well coordinated. The place has a good start in the kitchen but at the prices they request they need a lot more practice and polish.
This is our go-to restaurant in our hood. Great service, great food, no rush, tables at appropriate distance.
Great place to actually hear the conversation.
The price fix is probably a better value.
They have excellent wine selection.
Amazing pre theater option and you stand on your own two legs for other. Thank you
While a lovely restaurant with top notch service, the food was truly not worth the price.
The food was good but it's overpriced.
Service and food first rate. Running the gauntlet to pass muster with the maitre d' staff not so much. Very irritating to have to argue for a better table when the entire restaurant is empty. We're not random tourists in baseball caps and sneakers....
Enchanting place, wonderful view of Lincoln Center reflecting pond and Moore sculpture. Staff thoughtful, food super. It doesn't get any better than this.
excellent food for a pre-Lincoln performance --- fast, efficient service included
Just perfect . Oliver is so helpful and seductive . The food is over the top delicious . It is a fair pre fixe that allows you to have a taste adventure . The ambience is gem like with the added treat of looking out onto a Henry Moore sculpture . Perfect for pre Lincoln Center Event But also for a special occasion .
Disappointing service. Never knew who our waiter was and very slow in taking our order. Food is good though. Felt like we were eating in a bar area not a dining room.
The food never disappoints!! The cost is high but service food and ambiance superb!! Not an everyday place to eat unless you don’t care about price. Great for a special occasion!
Right in Lincoln Center, they spent a lot of money on the decor but make it up on the price of the food. $78 three course, $94 four course pre-fixe plus expensive a la carte options. However the quality is commensurate with the prices, and lots of nice little extras. Great spot for before or after theater
Good food and service. Nice to be near Lincoln Center.
Could not have private conversation with tables so close.
Very professional and kindness waiters staff , tasty food and serve on time , cleaning tables and place , excellent wine list. Definitely recommend.
Good food, good ambiance, excellent service. Accommodated a table request which was greatly appreciated.
Fantastic as always! Food is almost too good, if that is possible!
The service was impeccable. Everyone took very good care of us. The food was very good. It's a great place to go for a private or romantic evening.
We had a lovely dinner but were seated directly in front of the place where the staff stand waiting to see where they are needed. So we were quite uncomfortable as they could hear our conversation and we theirs (and they talked quite a bit). There were many empty tables! Perhaps our table should only be given as a last resort? Staff was very good and not their fault they were supposed to stand there when not in action .
SERVICE AT FLOOR WAS OUTSTANDING! WE WILL VISIT AGAIN.
Great place for price fixed brunch on Sunday. Booths are cozy. Able to sit and talk for two hours without pressure.
A lovely venue post or pre theater. It happened to be snowing and looking out onto the fountain was so beautiful. We were having a reunion with dear friends after the opera. The whole experience was perfect and we shall return as soon as possible.
Attentive service.Drinks pricey and wine list at prix fix limited.Negroni bar was unique,but special cocktails too complex and mixes were strange to our taste buds.Pastas were exceptional,mains were standard,desserts were disappointing(too many strange components like truffle gelato on an overly sweet apple torta-weird flavor).I believe Chef was trying too hard and should stick to more conventional Italian.My thoughts.
Extremely enjoyable and relaxing dining experience. Professional presentations and service. Most comfortable chairs for table seating.
Always a great time at Lincoln. The butternut ravioli was a tasty surprise and the sea bass was cooked to perfection . Great service, ambiance...and space!!
The portion size are very small fish maybe 3 oz
For main course
The appetizers were not impressive
Service could be better
A perfect place for a special occasion and an exceptional dining experience.
Excellent service and food in a great location even if you are not going to a performance at Lincoln Center.
Great food and fantastic service. Very classy ambiance. Recommended for business, special occasion, or before a performance at Lincoln Center.
Wonderful as usual - beet salad, scallops, eggplant parmigiana, braised beef rib with barolo sauce, veal meatballs all great. We were a bit rushed at the end for our Met curtain.
Everything was perfect at Lincoln Restaurant. The food was fantastic, the service faultless. The Lincoln Center view from the restaurant in the evening was very romantic and beautiful. It was our first time, but it won’t be the last. We’ll go back to this restaurant.
Fantastic service. Good food.
Really good food and friendly, efficient service. Will definitely go back
Great food in a lovely atmosphere. Light, airy and quiet. Terrific wait staff.
Thought that they participated in NYC Restaurant Week, since I found my way to them and decided to go there through the NYC Restaurant Week link in your ap, but they told us that they only participated for lunch. Disappointed - but meal was quite good albeit more expensive than we had planned on spending
It was a lovely experience. Why do so many men wear “high waters” pants? Did not like the kitchen shouting orders & pick ups ... spoiled the quiet/ ambiance.
Always a pleasure returning to Lincoln. The prix fixe menu was varied enough to make choosing each course a pleasurable challenge. The wine list is a journey through the riches of Italian varietals. Our waiter was top notch. Too good a restaurant to relegate to a pre-theater go-to spot. We’ll be back soon.
