The Grand Tier Restaurant is located inside The Metropolitan Opera House and offers both a la carte and prix fixe menus. The restaurant welcomes the general public, not just ticketed guests of the Metropolitan Opera House. The restaurant’s location makes it the perfect pre-theater dining experience for all guests of Lincoln Center. The exquisite modern cuisine and classic dining room, highlighted by Chagall murals and brilliant Swarovski crystal chandeliers, make it a memorable destination regardless of the occasion.

Ticketed guests of the Metropolitan Opera may also dine in the restaurant at intermission but must pre-order and reserve by visiting us at Reservations for ticketed guests dining at intermission ONLY are not taken via Open Table.
