    One of the best "finds" on the upper west side. The place is delightful and the food is really good. I will continue to come back to enjoy and tell all to try it...it is really wonderful way to spend a dinner (or a lunch).

    I took my granddaughter for dinner here tonight. We've been here before and the soon to be 8 yr. old wanted to return. Our server was beyond wonderful. My granddaughter was enchanted. He could not have been more attentive. He truly made our night. And, of course, the food is fabulous. Thank you for a great Grandma/Granddaughter outing.

    I had the NY strip. Lovely char, cooked to perfection and served with lovely sides. My wife had the lemon chicken, which was soft, not over cooked and very flavoursome. As it was our anniversary, the waiter surprised us with a pudding with ‘happy anniversary’ written on the place, which was a lovely touch. Lovely place, would recommend to friends travelling to the big apple. All the best. Dean and Katharine

    Always a pleasure at this restaurant. Excellent service and food. The flank steak was cooked to perfection and the carrot/ginger soup is excellent. Altho, a few blocks from Lincoln Center (4 to be precise), it is an excellent option and far better cost choice.

    We had a delightful meal with excellent service. We had reserved, not even thinking of Restaurant Week, but the fixe (usually only until 7pm) was the same, and time was no issue. We all loved our meals. the caesar salad was copious and delicious, the salmon was perfect (accompanying sauce and vegetables very very tasty), the steaks were wonderful, the bread (pre-meal) was a generous size and very good, and finally the desserts were great. Our server (from Turkey--we didn't note his name) was fantastic--helpful, funny, professional and endearing. The space is lovely as well--lots of room between tables and relatively quiet (well, it was a summer Friday night at 6:15, so it got a little noisier as the evening progressed, but for most of the meal it was wonderfully quiet). Highly recommend!

    Lincoln Square Steak - Permanently ClosedResponded on August 6, 2019Thank you Betera for your review! The name of your nice server is Sam. I will make sure to read the review to him at our staff meeting today. We're looking forward to seeing again soon. Best regards, LSS

    The salads and crispy calamari were very fresh and tasty. All of us ordered the Fillet Mingon, mine was a perfect MedRare. My guests preferred MedWell, and were pleased for the most part, but one did mention that the steak was more WellDone than MedWell, but still said the taste was outstanding. Delightfully surprised with our dessert Ice Cream creaminess. This was a very rich and perfect ending to our meal. We shall be back!

    4 person dinner, 2 with restaurant week menu, 2 ala carte. Everybody was pleased with food, service and ambiance. We were seated (as we asked to be) in the piano bar area. A bit too noisy to enjoy the piano but we were far from the piano. Miss the signature pop-overs (following recent renovation and facelift of the place) but new alternative bread was very good too.

    I ordered a rib eye, medium rare and they brought out a medium well. They were nice and gave me a free glass of wine and remade the steak. When the second steak came out, it was cold in the middle, I.e a black & blue. They should have just took it off the bill because at that point I just didn’t eat it. However, the waiter provided excellent service. They also gave a free sorbet.

    Lincoln Square Steak - Permanently ClosedResponded on July 22, 2019Anonymous, We are so sorry about your experience! We sincerely apologize. Our understanding of the situation was: you were completely content to take the Rib Eye home that's why it wasn't taken off the check. Nevertheless we misread the situation, and we apologize about that. We would love to invite you back for a completely different experience. Warm regards, LSS

    Me and my boyfriend are from Sweden and ate for $200 dollars before tip and taxes. The food and service was ok, but it doesn't make any sence that you have to pay this amount of money just to get some helathy food and something that is more than just meat, cheese and fries.

    Honestly, I was very surprised to be there on a Friday night at 7:30 and see the place empty, until we started to order. It was Friday night and yet they were out of several things that they should not have been. The service was ok. I ordered a dozen oysters and was served 6. Argued with me that I ordered 6. I was very very disappointed - it's a steak house so it's expensive. The other food (that was not steak) was awful according to tow of the diners. The restaurant will not last. It is huge and empty on a Friday night, not good. I wouldn't go back - too many good steak restaurants in NY.

    Overall food quality is sub par for a steakhouse at this price range. Our table of 4 ordered 3 lobsters and 1 tomahawk steak. Waiter came back and told us only 2 lobsters were available, after pitching the lobster special. On top of that we had to return One of the 2 lobsters due to cleanliness issues. They replaced with salmon which was pretty good. and did not charge us which was nice of them. The toasted chicken was so so not bad but def. not good, my wife left most of it on her plate and I tried it also and agree with her. The tomahawk ribeye was so so but not memorable for this price range. I thought the service was okay but because of the poor food quality, we won’t come back again since there are so many choices in the upper west side. The dinner was to celebrate my birthday , the company was great but unfortunately not the food.
