Our family group of 10 had an excellent meal prior to the NY Philharmonic concert. The pre-planned meal with the wine and food pairings was terrific. Service for our group was perfect with the right amount of attention without being overwhelming. The asparagus, octopus and...More

A fancy special occasion spot, right at Lincoln Center. Service is very good, though formal. Pretty setting. Food is delicious. Every item on the menu is expensive. Salads large enough to share and they will split it for you. Entrees are beautifully presented and appropriately...More

The Lincoln Ristorante is a sleek oasis in the middle of Lincoln Center. The restaurant is beautiful- spare and modern. The service was perfect- attentive and helpful without being overbearing or pretentious. The wine list is enormous and expensive. There are only a handful of...More

Everything about this restaurant is top-drawer, first-class. There is a subdued elegance. We dined for nearly five hours without being hassled or rushed. The dinner was wonderfully paced. For Negroni drinkers, you may choose the ingredients. I sampled the pasta and found each very good....More

We've dined several times a year at Lincoln since it opened, this last meal will be our last unless things change. The good news is that this is a lovely setting, almost romantic, right next to Lincoln Center and it used to offer fine dining....More

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,
