"First, the understated, lowered light dining room in neutrals and darks surprises you with its sophistication. From the arrival of the bread to our shared dessert, the food was fantastic. We ordered albacore in black truffle oil--so delicate and so delicious! We all had the bone-in filet prepared medium--it couldn't have been better seasoned or more perfectly cooked. We complemented that with the sauteed mushrooms (nothing complments a steak better) and sauteed spinach. When we asked for more crostini, we got a half dozen. And the chocolate sin cake with crème anglaise was the perfect ending. Service was incredible. We'll be back!"

"We had a wonderful pre-opera dinner. Normally, we give this restaurant 5 stars, because the food is very good, there's always a nice range of choices and the front and the wait staff are great. This evening, we loved the chicken with morels, the curried crab salad, both soups (pea and white asparagus). One of us was disappointed in one special (a crispy pork belly special, especially the accompanying slaw) and the steak, which he felt was a bit dry. What I like about the restaurant is that they do have interesting special and lots of menu rotation and once in a blue moon, the concept might not just work. We're going back next week!"

"My mother and I ate there on a Saturday night, and that, by itself, says it Al. This restaurant could not be more welcoming and more caring about its customers. My mother, who's older and not so mobile, got couch solicitous treatment. She was dying for a steak, and the steaks here are great, as well as everything else on both our plates. The restaurant was busy--some kind of big sports tournament was taking place at the Excel Center--and there were family tables, college student tables, tourist tables--you name it. Everyone was having a great time. And this is a great place for steak."

"We've eaten in all the restaurants by Lincoln Center; the three of us have found this to be one of the best. We all had the very rich, but absolutely delicious wild mushroom soup, We actually like this soup better than the chowder. Two of us had sensational pasta with seafood over fettuccine. Delicious, beautifully prepared shrimp, along with calamari and clams. The third had the skate, a dish I've had there before, a great menu staple. The wine by the glass menu is well priced. We were definitely sated and satisfied. Service was great and speedy--a must, pre-theater."

"This restaurant is so vibrant, just entering the restaurant is an energizing experience. We had salads and fish--the menu has very good healthy options, the fish prepared consistently well. Service is fast, but no sense of being rushed. While as a space, the restaurant is cavernous, it's broken up in a way that creates lovely dining areas with plenty of people, but not an overwhelming crowd. A really high-quality option near Lincoln Center."

At Lincoln Ristorante, we offer our interpretation of modern 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. While our location beside Lincoln Center’s reflecting pool is exquisite, with panoramic views and a grass lawn roof, the heart of our restaurant is the central open kitchen.<br /><br />The menu offers our take on traditional preparations ranging from spaghetti al pomodoro to vitello tonnato and simply grilled branzino. Antipasti coax rustic ingredients into dishes with deep, savory flavors. Desserts are beautiful renditions of Italy’s classics: light, lush and irresistible.<br /><br />While reservations are recommended to ensure a table, walk-ins are welcome at our bar where the full menu is served. We are open seven days a week offering lunch, pre-theater, dinner and weekend brunch.<br /><br />

"We have been here a few times, always in hope that the wonderful chef here will get in the groove of the location in Lincoln Center, the dining patterns of a pre-theater crowd, etch. This time will be our last. We ordered the special of porchetta. To say it was tough is an understatement. The steak knife provided could not cut through the outer skin; I headed for the middle, in the hope that it was tender, but it too was enormously difficult to cut. The pork betty wrap had large, solid pieces of white--fat? Gristle? Hard to Was the sauce tasty? Yes, but I spent the entire meal worrying that I would be wearing it for the rest of the evening. This dish should never made it out of the kitchen."

Chef Bill Telepan acclaimed former chef of the 3-star Judson Grill will serve the very best and freshest of seasonal foods impeccably prepared and paired with an interesting, hand- picked and reasonably priced selection of wines. Ruth Reichl described his cooking as “…extremely eloquent; each of [his] unassuming dishes roars with flavor, and the minute you finish one bite you instantly want another. His direct style draws diners into a vibrant interplay of textures, tastes and colors.” Telepan, an exciting new destination located in the heart of the Upper West Side, will welcome fine dining enthusiasts from around the city, as well as the pre- and post-theater Lincoln Center crowd.

"Brunch is a tough test for a restaurant, since it can be ordinary, and Telepan passes the test--brunch 's is just extraordinary. The choices range from true breakfast dishes to elegant luncheon. The first has similar range--we all opted for Bill Telepan's signature trout and blink--sublime! One of us had the superb French toast; another had the delicious lobster and scallion omelet, perfectly cooked; the third had a trout main course. The service was attentive, the ambience very good, although we were seated in a section away from the main dining room and the bar, great if you love quiet, but a little isolated from what are lovely sections of the restaurant."

"The cuisine here is Mediterranean, but an inventive Mediterranean. I had the fantastic octopus a.la plancha, my colleague had the delicious shrimp with chilis. Our mains--two from the fish offerings--were also just terrific. Our dessert of chocolate mousse was delectable. The servings were generous, but not excessive. The service was excellent--we were out at 7:15, just as asked. And both of us were talking about getting there again soon in the future."

"This is an all-time favorite. We had the prix fixe--pate de campagne, merle (a white fish), and an amazing chocolate peanut butter dessert. As always, the food was just terrific. The service was lovely--from the welcome gougeres to coffee service--and the ambience is fine, but not fancy. What I've noticed is that the restaurant has found ways to get more people in for pre-theater, with a very extended bar (for meals). But the front and the service hasn't lost a beat."

"This is one of my greatest favorites in New York. We had another terrific meal before the NYC Ballet--my friend had the monkfish and I had the scallops. the servings were generous; we had a nice glass of St. Joseph. The service is attentive but not omnipresent. I"
