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.

Great ambiance. Mediocre pasta. Spotty service. High prices.
We sat outdoors opposite the Henry Moire sculpture in a rare peaceful setting for NYC. The food was delicious, the service impeccable. It was an extraordinarily special night
Really enjoyed my Lincoln dining experience. The food was very good. There was a nice selection for restaurant week. I had a delicious salad and a very good salmon entree. Everything was cooked to perfection. The dessert was terrific. The maitre de was charming and made sure we were well taken care of. He was attentive but not over bearing. I would come back to Lincoln again. I really enjoyed the lunch!
Five stars for ambiance and quietude. Tables are far apart and one can converse. Attentive service. My main gripe is portion size: my salmon was minuscule. Did they downsize for RW? Doubtful as my companions’ main courses were normal size. Food was fine but not outstanding.
Food was fantastic, service was over the top, best food experience...
First time visiting here, but everything was better than my expectation. I would definitely revisit in the future.
They were very efficient in getting out dinner to us and out in time for a performance. We only had 1 1/2 hours, still got a sweet treat at the end.
This was our second visit to Lincoln and we brought friends! Dinner was delicious and we went with Oliver's recommendations of the lobster salad, baked chicken, scallops, and sirloin of beef. Outstanding. But unfortunately we couldn't linger as we had performance tickets at Koch Hall. However know that the experience left all of us with the "taste to visit again". Because of Lincoln and my experiences with The Grand Tier, I have a certain expectation of quality of cuisine and service by The Patina Group, that is unsurpassed by any other restaurant in NYC. Special thanks to our wait staff: Oliver, William, Kayla and hostess Hailey who greeted me by name when I arrived. I appreciate their occupational expertise; moreso the genuine personal attention and care that we received. Thank you so much.
Excellent restaurant week lunch. Good choices, well thought out wine pairing, fine service. A winner?
Restaurant Week menu was a nice option. Service is impeccable.
Pasta slightly overcooked and oversalted, but a lovely place with very good food and attentive service
I had NYC restaurant week lunch. The food was great as always. They had this wine pairing for the lunch: one 4 oz glass of white and one 4 oz of red. I liked the both. It was a beautiful sunny day. I enjoyed the lunch there in a sunny spacious room.
The staff was amazing - we only had about an hour for dinner before our ballet performance. The staff made sure we got everything for plenty of time to enjoy and were very courteous. The food was amazing. Thank you!
Delightful, modern, bright and cheerful. Wonderful dining, lovely surroundings, attentive and friendly staff.
Restaurant Week Lunch was fair and used to be excellent. Tiny tomato salad. No gift from the chef before or at the end of the meal, as in the past. Delicious chicken, salmon, focaccia, and cappuccino. Gracious service. Two courses, $26 this year is not the value it used to be. This is true generally in all participating restaurants this year, and is not so special.
My friend and I were delighted with your restaurant. The food, service and friendliness of staff made for a perfect lunch experience. Thank you very much.
Pricey, but excellent.
Lovely lunch with a friend during RW. Christopher, our sommelier was incredible. Wish I would have had the caprese salad but the chicken was yummy.
We were there before a concert. Great meal, but pricy
Really taste good and service over my expection
Always enjoy going to the Lincoln Ristorante and this time did not disappoint.
Great place to enjoy food. The service is flawless.
Delicious Food, excellent service beautiful ambiance
had a wonderful time
We just love this restaurant. I understand that Jonathan Benno left the place, but no one would have noticed it. Everything is still running professionally and the food taste great as always. Our server Laurianna has been there over eight years and still as pleasant as ever. Very impressive.
Asked for salmon to be cooked rare and it came back well done. They left it and brought another one but odd for a high end restaurant. Chicken was tasty. Service was great.
The Lincoln is a fantastic place for a business meeting/dinner. Few spots in The upper West side offer a quiet place that a dinner discussion can take place. I have used the Lincoln on multiple occasions and always have good service, food is well portioned, and the quality is good. For those on a corporate dinner budget, its at least $150/per person which maxes my budget. Libations are expensive.
One of our favorites for special occasion or having leisurely catch up dinner with friends. Very creative dishes, try the scallops. I must try the Negroni bar next.
The food and service were excellent.
Wait staff excellent
Beautiful restaurant, with superb service & excellent food.
Fantastic food and service with a wonderful ambience
I've always enjoyed Lincoln, but I'm not a fan of the "new" prix fixe menu, the ala carte menu was much better and more interesting. This was a social/business dinner, not theater related, and we probably won't do that kind of dinner at Lincoln again. We might stop in for drinks after a LC event, but going forward that's about it.
Service has always been gracious, but on this night it slipped. When the wait staff brought out the orders, not one of them was placed properly with the person ordering it. On the first course we just thought it was a slip, but it happened on all subsequent courses too.
Everything was nothing short of phenomenal. The flavor profiles of every dish was an adventure for our palate. The service was flawless, leaving us to never want for anything. I would recommend Lincoln to anyone looking to have nothing but the best dining experience.
Lincoln is expensive, $79 for two courses before tax and tip. So you are over $200/couple without a cocktail or a glass of wine. Having said that, the food is very good, the setting is lovely and obviously ideal if you are going to an event at Lincoln Center. And, they serve lots of extras, including a full dessert the last time we were there. If this price is in your budget give it a try.
My first course was waiting for 5 min that someone could give me a knife and fork, my food is almost cold, The waiter tried to put on water and every time he threw water on the table something so simple can be the most uncomfortable
