Our family of 6 ate dinner here before a show. The food was fantastic—our favorite restaurant of our whole trip to NYC. The service was wonderful. The pasta is great, and so are the desserts and appetizers. We would definitely return.

As a season ticket holder for the NYC Ballet I frequent Lincoln. The food is great. The service is not. Is it so hard to take a drinks order when the guests are seated? And why deliver each drink five minutes apart so that the...More

We booked at this restaurant for two reasons, even though we weren't going to an event. Primarily we'd heard the food was excellent, and also because the acoustics are such that you can have an actual conversation, as old friends are likely to want to...More

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.
