Telepan is an urban restaurant that serves innovative farm-to-table dishes and wine in upscale surrounds. Helmed by chef-owner Bill Telepan, the market-drive menu features over two dozen dishes (excluding dessert). Menu highlights include the house-smoked book trout and lobster Bolognese. Guests can dine a la carte, or spoil themselves with a lavish four-course prix fixe dinner. This restaurant also boasts an impressive wine list, carefully curated to complement the dining menu.

Tucked on the ground floor of an elegant townhouse, Telepan is a nice pick for special occasions. The restaurant's four-course tasting menu (which comes with optional wine pairing) provides the perfect culinary tonic for a romantic night out. Telepan is open for lunch and dinner, Monday through Sunday.

Too bad they were forced to close the next day. They will missed, both as a good neighbor and a great place to go if going to Lincoln Center.

We are always delighted with the wonderful kitchen preparation and service at Telepan. Unhappily, we understand that this fine dining place will soon be gone.

Little did we know that our dinner at Telepan on 5/13 would be my last. My husband and I have been coming here since it opened. It has been our go-to spot for pre-opera and theatre and special occasions. We always walked away feeling we had been well taken care of. Now what will we do? We also celebrated our anniversary there in April...and so glad that we did. Thank you Bill for 10 great years. Hope that you find another spot and begin anew.

The combination of smoked trout and (sweet blinis) did not work for me. The pea pancakes dish had a variety of pea based food, but they all taste the same. The beef tartare my husband had was no special (worth a Micheline star restaurant) either. His fetuccini were very good he said.

Food was excellent although service was a bit slow. We had our appetizers before our wine arrived

My Fiance and I went there for a nice night out. The service food and service were very good! The atmosphere was lively, but the place wasn't packed, which was nice.

and much better value and better service than Leopard at cafe des Artistes.
It is clearly one of the best restaurants in the Lincoln center area. From the moment we came in we were treated with great gentility.The wait staff and the busboys were all excellent and in greater number than other restaurants to which I have gone in the area. It is3 stars expensive. the delicious lamb entree was $44. but worth every penny. The oysters baked with herbs was also amazing.

Food is the star here. Everyone at the table went quiet and just ate! Mozzarella with artichokes as the appetizer was creamy and delicious. Swordfish was wonderful and home fries and ramps with it were even better. Pasta was fantastic. Service was lovely. No complaints!

A restaurant with really good food, a reasonable noise level, a place to enjoy friends, a pleasure in a sea of "hip"trendy placed

Food was great. Spring pea pancakes w/ pea shoots, light saute, puree and the pancakes themselves are a nice dish. Lots of fresh pea flavors with lots of contrasting textures/compositions. Steak for 2 was fantastic. Perfectly cooked. Service, however, was very inconsistent and staff seemed hesitant/confused as to what to do at times. Transitions were languishing and what could have been a nicely paced dinner dragged onto 2hrs unnecessarily.

We enjoy Telepan every time we come to NYC and this time was no exception. We two ladies chose the four course wine pairing tasting menu and it was fantastic! This meal is SUCH a bargain! As usual, the food was superb but the service from both Megan, the server and Pavla, the sommelier took the experience to a new level.
Megan allowed us to relax and enjoy a glass of Prosecco while we perused the menu. When questioned, she thought that it would be better for us to split the wine tasting as the pours are generous. (Totally correct!) She answered all our food questions and paced the meal perfectly.
Pavla was a delightful surprise! She is a sommelier who clearly knows her wines. Pavla took the time to find out our palate preferences and chatted knowledgeably about every selection. She selected different wines for each of us, which was wonderful. I have a cellar at home and very much appreciated her professional, yet friendly manner and it was nice to chat with her about wine.
Superb evening and we booked for another evening as well.

My friend and I usually dine at Telepan in the spring when we attend the Ballet and this dining occasion proved to be as good as usual. We particularly enjoy the spring menu especially the pea pancakes. We have also dined there with other friends and family on other visits into NYC. And we always find the food, service and atmosphere to be wonderful.

Telepan is a terrific restaurant. It offers first rate food, excellent service, and a quiet ambiance, and great value for the price. The prix fixe dinners are priced far below many restaurants of comparable quality. That Telepan is in our neighborhood, the Upper West Side, is an added bonus.
