Ambience, food and service was absolutely outstanding. The menu is not extensive but everything we chose was delicious and beautifully presented. The architecture is an added bonus. I can't wait to go back.

Nine of us dined here before seeing “My Fair Lady” at Lincoln Center. We had spent the better part of the day inside, so the glass walls made us feel as though we were outside. The wait staff was incredible and the food was wonderful....More

Three friends and I met for dinner there--and the setting, food, and service lived up to our expectations. The ambience is quite formal but snug in a banquette, we had a delicious dinner and enjoyed the evening in elegant, peaceful, and attentive setting.

This was a great surprise. The food, service and atmosphere were all much better than I had anticipated. We had a great table with a very attentive server. Our main courses and deserts were all very good. Very enjoyable.

Lunch was fixed at $29,00 Go somewhere else for dinner. The food is only fair and the service is very slow. There are several restaurants across the street from Lincoln Center. Bar Bolud is great.

At Lincoln Ristorante, we offer Chef Shea Gallante’s interpretation of Italian cuisine in New York at Lincoln Center. Our philosophy is simple: to source the best local ingredients and prepare them with authentic Italian methods and spirit. We rely on local farmers and purveyors along with weekly visits to our neighborhood Tucker Square Greenmarket, while importing irreplaceable items from Italy. We honor the Italian culinary tradition of making our own fresh pastas, grissini, and focaccia. Desserts, by Richard Capizzi, are beautiful renditions of Italy’s classics: light, lush and irresistible. A focus and commitment to freshness and respect for every ingredient is paramount in our daily life.
