At Lincoln Ristorante, we offer our interpretation of modern Italian cuisine in New York at Lincoln Center. Our philosophy is simple: to source the best local ingredients and prepare them with authentic Italian methods and spirit. While our location beside Lincoln Center’s reflecting pool and the Henry Moore sculpture is exquisite, the panoramic views and grass lawn roof are sure to impress.

The cuisine at Lincoln Ristorante blends precise technique with the ingredients and comforting feel of an Italian kitchen. We rely on local farmers and purveyors along with weekly visits to our neighborhood Tucker Square Green Market, while importing the essential items (Parmigiano Reggiano, San Marzano tomatoes) from Italy that are irreplaceable.

Everything worked in this restaurant. From the pacing of the meal due to a concert, the service hd the right amount of attentiveness, the menu was well thought out and most importantly the food was delicious.

Beautifully designed space. Middling food. Flavors lack brightness. We might come back for a pre-theater drink, but purely for the setting.

We travel the world and try the best restaurants, this was just an in & out of NY, this is one of the best (if not the best) service experience we've had in a while. Absolutely great food, great staff. We'll back and send many friends, partners, family!
Thank you Lincoln Ristorante

Have been enjoying Lincoln Ristorante since it opened, perhaps 20 times or more, usually happy. Last Saturday 8/13 we were very disappointed. BOTH the Risotto and the Sea Food dish were nicely served, but the amount of the food was very DISAPPOINTING, not even appropriate for an appetizer .... TiNY portions - both dishes. Laughable.
When we mentioned this to our waiter his answer was elusive, nothing was done.
Very disappointing.

Lincoln is a very good restaurant in the Lincoln centre just off 65th avenue. The restaurant is very open and glassy and has some good views onto the square at the Lincoln centre. The food was very good, service very good and the wine list is more than reasonable. If we were in New York longer we would go back but we won't as we are here on holidays for a limited time period. Some family members of ours who used to live on the upper west side recommended the restaurant to us. Worth a try in our view

Classy upscale dining without being pretentious. Of course the food is always excellent.
Few places do grilled sardines. These are devine

Food's volume and flavor are just right and perfect.

As always, the food is well- prepared, attractively presented, and a little different. The space is gracious and comfortable. And the wine list provides great options at different price points. One of our favorite places to entertain out- of- town guests.

Had the restaurant week lunch, food was extremely salty and everyone near our table talked about the bad taste. Very disappointing in general, dessert was the best among all.

My friend and I always enjoy Restaurant Week and we wanted to back to Lincoln Restaurante and it was worth the trip to the West Side/ Lincoln Center.

The staff is very professional, friendly and attentive. The seating is roomy and not close together. We enjoyed a couple of drinks from the Prosecco Bar and picked our lunch from the Restaurant Weekend. We had the Fava Bean salad and Affetati. For the main dish, my friend had the Sea Bass and I had the Pork Spare Ribs. EXCELLENT! and for lunch we both had the Pistachio Cake. A delightful lunch.

I will come back to Lincoln and recommend to everyone.

We had lunch during Restaurant week and enjoyed it very much. Food was beautifully prepared and we liked the Puglia-based menu. The wines offered with the menu were very good and a good value. Would definitely do this again.

Lincoln never disappoints. It's seasonal menu is both classic and unexpected. The prosecco bar is pretty special and reasonable for NYC and on Lincoln Center campus.
