    Excellent food. We moved outside from sitting inside because a worker crew at the bar was unbelievably obnoxious and loud. Our server was very nice - we had a great time once we relocated. Food was delicious!

    Great place to grab dinner before a show at Lincoln Center. Our food (chicken ceasar salad & burger) was quite good, and the service was very friendly and attentive. The bar area got pretty loud (not anyone’s fault) and the late afternoon sun made our side of the dining area extremely bright and hot, so just keep that in mind if either of those things would bother you. We had a great experience, it was really the perfect spot to eat before going to the ballet.

    I think I got sick from the raw Little Neck Clams. And don't know why they tried to sit us in the sun when there were plenty of tables in the shade. Even when we asked politely.

    Veggies in Bloody Mary's were likely from previous day - soft celery and soggy carrot etc. Burger way overcooked. Turkey club was overloaded with tomato jam (aka ketchup) and the turkey was dry. Clam chowder great but very small bowl. Oyster crackers were soggy. All in all the location has gone way down hill.

    The only reason I go to PJ's is its accessibility to Lincoln Center. Food is just o.k. Last nights burgers, asked to be rare, were medium well. No time to return them. Fish and chips were overly and unnecessarily greasy. Waiter was terrific and really accommodating. But other than location, no reason to go here.

    P.J. Clarke's-Lincoln SquareResponded 5 days agoHi Caroline, We're so sorry to hear you weren't welcomed in for your visit! That is absolutely not the PJ's standard of service, and management at this location will review with staff how all interactions with guests should reflect the PJ's values of welcoming, familiar, and professional service. We hope you decide to give us another chance, as we appreciate your business. Sincerely, The PJ's Team

    The food is very good here, if a little pricey. Nevertheless, it is worth it. The restaurant is clean and well-kept. The waiters and waitresses are friendly. The location across from Lincoln Center is very convenient.

    Food was very disappointing. My friend had the Fish and Chips or should I say Batter and Chips. Both the waiter and manager were very understanding and took it off the bill. I had the lobster Cobb salad which was a let down. For the cost there was very little salad. The bacon was over done, no dressing and very little greens. The only highlight were the cocktails. This is a bar with bad bar food. The next time I go to the ballet, I’ll wait until I get home to Westchester to have dinner.

    We were kept waiting for 5-10 minutes after reservation time to be seated when multiple tables were empty. Also, the waiter was covering too many tables to be very responsive. The original PJ Clarkes was my Go-to burger place, but clearly, this is not the same as the original. Good but not great. Fun place and has nice indoor-outdoor seating. Good beer selection and good bartender.

    Everything was nice until the server misplaced my credit card. After much searching and waiting, the card was found. I would have thought that the manager would have comped one of the many drinks we had but NO. And that disappointed me.

    Okay for an average burger with a weak limp bun. Would most likely try another burger place before returning to dine here again. The fries were served cold (after waiting as long as we did, we did not complain) and the Brussel sprouts were not good.

    Excellent Bloody Mary’s. But, very loud, hard to carry a conversation. Lobster rolls were just OK- huge buns with lobster meat inside - not much flavor. Our waiter was very personable, friendly and efficient.
