Excellent but pricey Indian food

Delicious, well prepared Indian food close to Lincoln Center. This is not your standard north Indian slop - the vegetables were very fresh, and prepared with subtle, nuanced spices. They will make the food as hot or as mild as you want, and even those who don't like "spicy" food will be... read more

Amazing food, not the cheapest but excellent quality. We come from the UK and some people have mentioned the attitude of the staff but Indian gentlemen in the UK do tend to have an aloof attitude! Will definitely go there again before we leave :)

We were taken here by an Indian citizen who thought it would be a good place to show off Indian Cuisine. He was wrong as the food was only OK. Service was good and the setting was very impressive but it is really the food you are going for so the Sapphire only gets an "Average" rating from us for... More

We went with a family group after a performance at Lincoln Center. They had a big round table for us--always better than a long one for a group--and very comfortable chairs. Everything we ordered was delicious. I can particularly recommend the Lahsuni Gobi (fried cauliflower) and the lamb Jardaloo (Persian style with apricots), but nothing was bad, or even mediocre....

As soon as we reached there with our baby, they told that we don't have high chair. We were ok with that but as we entered, we were treated like a slave. The staff was very rude and it seems that they were doing some kind of favor by taking our order. We had to leave in middle of ordering... More

I ate here with a big group on business and the service was very good. It can be hard to deal with large tables, but they were great. We ordered just about everything on the menu and there wasn't anything I didn't like. I eat at lots of Indian restaurants and can be a bit picky about the food, too.... More

$17 gets you access to an extensive lunch buffet. The naan was light and fluffy. The Dhigari Mutter (peas, onions & mushrooms) was my favorite dish. The Chicken Tikka Masala was delicious. The tandoori chicken was a little dry. The only thing I didn't care for was the tzatziki. Rice pudding and fruit custard were offered for desert- both delicious.... More

I just ate at Sapphire for the second time and really like this restaurant. The setting is nice and the food is excellent. The menu was more varied than many Indian restaurants in the city. I highly recommend the salmon Saag (cooked in a story and creamy spinach-based sauce). The restaurant is a short walk from Columbus Circle and also... More

This place does have the atmosphere of New York more than India. I think the layout could of been more appealing. I do like the fact that unlike so many restaurants in the city, the tables aren't all pushed up against each other. I found the food very good, and the service was fine.

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
