A dear friend and I ate here one evening recently. Although we wanted dinner we also wanted to spend time visiting. Sapphire was perfect. The restaurant is lovely with crisp linen tablecloths and gorgeous copper serving pieces. We were there on a Monday evening and the restaurant was consistently busy but not overwhelmed. The staff was attentive but very patient... More

I met family at this West Side standby near Lincoln Center for their lunch buffet, which is well known among neighborhood denizens. It is plentiful, tasteful and well varied. There are many vegetarian and gluten free options, and the lamb and chicken entrees are excellent. It's a great meal deal before a matinee or an evening performance at the nearby... More

I know a thing or two about authentic Indian restaurants and food since I've travelled there, and this place is up there with the best of them in India itself. Even the decor is reminiscent of Rajastan; it didn't take much imagination to see myself back in Agra Fort. Since I like spicy food I ordered the spicy lamb with... More

Had dinner here - food was tasty, service good, comfortable seating - we were a party of five and enjoyed being able to sit at a round table. Atmosphere was pleasant even though the restaurant was very crowded. Prices were reasonable for NYC; however upon receiving the check we had neglected to notice the small print at the bottom of...

A great restaurant! Splendid food and great service. The food is served in the traditional Indian manner with pots on the table and freshly cooked rize as a side order. The restaurant has a beautiful interior decoration which sets you in the native mood right from the start. A place to be recommended!

This restaurant is a must for spicy food lovers! We both ate tandoori and the taste of each very different dish was subtle and sublime. The popadoms we had for starters were crisp and the dips different, hot and spicy. The service was impeccable, attentive but not overbearing and the tables were dressed in linen cloths, so pleasant to eat... More

We enjoy coming here. It's great and authentic Indian food but more upscale than the average Indian. They have a great buffet for lunch.

We were looking for a restaurant close to the Lincoln Center and discovered this little gem. Given its location just 2 blocks south of Lincoln Center, we expected to pay twice what we paid for our dinners. The Chicken Vindaloo and Channa Masala were excellent choices. Waitstaff was plentiful and the atmosphere was one of fine dining.

As a fan of indian food, I really enjoy Sapphire. It never fails to satisfy my appetite for good Indian food-consistently very good. However, one must endure apathetic service. I have been many times for dinner and was recently there for their buffet lunch. The buffet lunch is a deal. With so many restaurants in that area, they do hold... More

After walking around the city on a cold December night, dh & I were happy to find this place. For those who complain about the price...it's a white linen tablecloth restaurant in the city. If you enjoy "traditional" American fare, which is typically high in sodium (read over-spiced) in order to get you to buy more drinks, you will probably... More
