Dined with a large group for my sister's birthday celebration and they were great in getting us in and out and on time. The food and drinks were wonderful and we will return for our next celebration.

Perfect for a pre-theatre bite. Pleasant setting & quick. There were healthy choices and it was not terribly crowded when we went there.

Had a smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel for breakfast, service was a bit slow but adequate. The food was tasty and just what I needed.

I like this restaurant - have neer been disappointed. It is expensive and luxurious, but worth it. Food is excellent, service as well. If you are attending a performance, they always get you there on time.

And in an architecturally stunning setting. Whole walls of glass, sliding ceiling with grass on top – great for sledding in the winter. Very fine service, excellent food and wine, quiet.

The restaurant is gorgeous, the food was tasty and sophisticated, the atmosphere was very genteel. I had a lovely time sitting quietly all by myself and being treated like a celebrity, and the little surprise extras that were provided were charming.

This is our favorite in the Lincoln Center area if not the City. A very romantic gracious setting with a view of the Moor statues and reflecting pool. The food and service is excellent and the portions very fair. The dishes are creative and delicious, especially surprising and delightful is the mushroom appetizer which has 3 kinds of roast mushrooms... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighbourhood Profile
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, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
