"Our first opera at the Met. so we thought why not splurge and dine at the Grand Tier. We were a little concerned we would not be paid attention to, not being "regulars." We were warmly greeted and introduced to our server, Juhli. She escorted us to, probably the best table for two in the restaurant at the window with a view of the piazza and fountain. The menu is somewhat limited but it's still difficult to choose being that everything appeared to be soooo good. Dinner was quickly served and all was truly wonderful. Juhli asked if we would like to have out after dinner sweets and coffee at intermission. she said the table is ours for the night so just walk right in enjoy. We did just that and our dessert choices and table-brewed coffee was waiting for us. With a 24 min. intermission we were back in our seats in plenty of time for the third act. Grand Tier added greatly to a wonderful evening. Its a little costly but, what the heck, you're at the Met !"

"Had a great meal at the Grand Tier. The only reason I gave 4 stars on the food was that my tenderloin was slightly over cooked, but still delicious. As was everything we ordered. Anytime you have a chance to go to the Met Opera make a reservation at the Grand Tier. Adds a nice touch to the overall experience."

"Focused on patrons -90 minutes to eat and a half hour to have your order taken. Couldn't get anyone's attention. Wine steward took our order and delivered it. Understand they have to get everyone out for the opera, but that's why you go there."

"Chocolate soufflé at intermission is available but you order in advance. The thing I found odd was that EVERY diner is REQUIRED to order desert if you want to return at intermission. The first intermissions are long enough to do this . We were seated at the earliest seating for dinner and we usually share desert so we did not avail ourselves of the chocolate soufflé( This is usually ordered with the initial order but not at The Grand Tier Restaurant; not an available option, per our waiter, Patrick). We were a party of three women. With this policy, they should offer desert in a box to take home, small bites or require one desert for every other person. Do Opera goers look generally like teen age boys? No, so why make a rule that requires they eat like them?"

"You can't get closer or better than this if you're going out for a night at the opera. The large dining room can get very noisy and you find you are repeating yourself to your companion. The food though was great. The pan roasted halibut was excellent, beautifully cooked and accompanied with a fabulous array of vegetables, one of the best fish dishes I've ever had. The service to start was good, but towards the end of the meal it was difficult to find our waiter to order the dessert so we didn't have enough time to enjoy the profiteroles before having to take our seats. Despite the few niggles it was still a wonderful experience and the performance that night, Verdi's Otello, capped off a great evening."

"Since we were seeing an opera and my wife had never dined here (I had 2-3 times), I booked a table for convenience -- you are, after all, right there, and they know you need to be done in time for the curtain. There are, certainly, better buys (The Grand Tier is pricey, with a relatively limited menu), and I have to say that we enjoyed Basso 56 more on our other two nights in NYC, but this is the thing you do when going to Met -- but not every time. Sorry to seem so tepid. There's nothing BAD about it, but it's just food after all is said and done."

"Service was strangely divided among several individuals, all of whom were largely unavailable. The lack of concern for time was especially odd since we, like many at this restaurant, were to attend the opera afterward. We have the impression that we were slighted because we were (a) out-of-towners, (b) not regular opera-goers, (c) not rich, or (d) all of the above. We barely made the curtain (by skipping dessert and a postprandial drink). The dinner debacle did not spoil the opera but it did ruin what promised to be a total experience. We'll return to the opera but not to Grand Tier. There are equally good or better restaurants nearby."

"We were in from out of town, with opera tickets, and this was a lovely precursor to the evening of music. It's pricey..of course. But you can't beat the location! No rush to get to the performance on time! Service was excellent and good-natured (my husband wasn't at the table yet, and I asked the waiter for two glasses of Sancerre; he replied, "and would you like to order something for the gentleman as well?") Of course they are in a hurry to get the food served and finished and the quality of preparation suffers a bit from that. But the pros by far outweigh the cons."

"The Grand Tier Restaurant is a 'must do' any time you have a ticket to a Lincoln Center performance. Celiac / Gluten free friendly! Quality of the food matches the world-class quality of the performances in the Opera house."

"We enjoyed brunch before the opera matinee. Food, service et al was wonderful. We love the convenience of having lunch just prior to and in the same buolding as the performance. A home run for us."

"The restaurant is under time constraints for its pre-opera diners. This it does well.
However the menu is pretentious, overpriced and a disappointment.

"This restaurant is the absolute perfect venue for dinner before the opera. Especially if you can score a table next to the window as we did. Very attentive and professional service. The best halibut I have had in years. Perfect portion sizes. We made reservations at 5:30 for a 7:30 performance and the kitchen timed it perfectly. Only missteps were 1) the lady at the front desk was a little distracted so not the best of welcomes and 2) the person responsible for water brought sparkling for both of us when we had ordered still water for one. Minor details but when a place is otherwise so perfect the small things stand out. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Not sure why you would eat anywhere else before a performance."
