"Over priced, incredibly bad food, the worst service in NYC. I couldn't even get a spoon for my husbands soup. Food was flung at you. Two.glasses of ok wine, and a bowl of soup ( I had to send my salad back for 20 dollars I expected more then two teaspoons of food) the bill came to $44.00 with tip. Never again."

"We ate a pre-opera dinner on a weeknight - rare for us as we usually go on the weekend, but our regular performance was snowed out 2 weeks earlier. The place was packed! Our server, Teresa, was attentive and made good suggestions, contributing to a wonderful dining experience. The food was just delicious (we had the short ribs and shrimp and they were perfect) and the cheesecake dessert was small enough to indulge in without being a significant caloric commitment. We recommend Lincoln Center Kitchen as a very nice place to come before a performance at Lincoln Center - good food and staff - a winning combination!"

"We were three in our dinner party, all subscribers to the Philharmonic Concert series at Lincoln Center but this was the first time we tried The Lincoln Center Kitchen - and, unfortunately, the last.
The food was mediocre and expensive for what we got. The service started out with what seemed like parker rolls - very undistinguished. My friend and I ordered white wines, they came in different size glasses. At the end of dinner the waiter reached across us for the plates which he stacked before leaving the table - not too classy!"

"Always enjoy this place. As NYPhil subscribers we have plenty of oppprtunies to eat here. During winter it is particularly delightful. Love the warm service, the homey choices and the chance to watch so many music lovers gather at Lincoln Center. Kale Caesar and ChickenPotPie are special favorites!"

"Whenever we attend the opera we dine at Lincoln Kitchen.
The food is very good, but the main reason we return is the excellent and caring service provided by Beatriz.
She is professional in every respect and has an excellent personal touch.
Also the bartender makes the best Manhattans.

"Overall I was somewhat disappointed.This place is very convenient before a Lincoln Center event. Everything else is good to very good. The food was good. We had the short ribs and salmon. The spicing and sauces were good but bland. The service was very good. Although crowded it was easy to converse largely because the ceilings were high. The prices were high largely because of the location. I would go back because of that despite knowing that it is not an outstanding meal."

"I had a 6:30 pre-concert reservation, and I arrived at 6:00 asking to be seated early in order to enjoy the meal without rushing before the 7:30 concert. They obliged by seating me immediately. The ambience was pleasant and the sound level was quiet. The staff, while courteous, was rushed and stressed due to the peak in pre-concert patrons. I ordered the prix fixe menu: mushroom soup (excellent) and the salmon with leek coulis. The waiter brought instead the other choice on the prix fixe, chicken breast with Brussels sprouts (OK) which I accepted in lieu of the salmon. I ordered dessert and espresso, but had to ask for sugar and a glass of water. I left well-fed and tipped 15%."

"Eating dinner at the Kitchen at Lincoln Center allows the entire night at the Ballet, Opera or Philharmonic to be a less stressful experience. The service is so good that if you hit traffic or are late for dinner you can still make your performance. Food is adequate and if you drive in and park at Lincoln Center you do not have to suffer the elements!!"

"There was one issue. My companion is a fussy eater and usually only eats chicken or turkey. The menu on your web site said there was a turkey club salad and there was no such thing. The host was surprised that the menu you used was old and not the current selections. Perhaps you can update yourself so the choices reflect reality. Otherwis, the dining was fine-food and staff."

"I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food at this restaurant in the lobby of David Geffen Hall. I had the pork chop with wheat berries, laccato kale and onion which was delicious and a great combination. I also enjoyed the soft warm onion rolls they served . My friend had the deviled eggs with caviar and a kale caesar salad which she enjoyed very much too. The restaurant was full but not noisy so you can have a conversation. The proportions are just enough which is perfect when you are going to the opera and don't want to feel overstuffed . I go to the Met opera often and this is a great find for its convenience and getting a very good meal . Thought the service was very attentive. I plan to return soon."

"After recognizing that you are not dining at one of the Lincoln Square top tier restaurants, you can enjoy a very satisfactory pre-performance dinner. Dark napkins for those dressed in black were a considerate touch, but tablecloths would go further to add extra class to a place with an excellent location. A limited menu still provided plenty of options, with the salad appetizers a favorite choice. Crab cakes were plentiful with more crab than cake, and the pot pie was just right for a cold evening. Staff is attentive to your schedule, and the dining area is small enough that one of the staff can respond to needs of your table, from an additional glass of wine to timely presentation of the closing check."

"Because it is located in the building and caters to people going to the concert they are very attentive to your time constraints. Beverage, main course and desert all separately ordered and each brought to the table in quick fashion. The food is acceptable although portions are on the small side. Much better alternative than trying to dine in the area."

"Steps from opera, NY Phil, Mitzi Newhouse, etc. But good location can take you only so far. We had the Pork chop and the chicken breast. Nice presentation, flavors were good, but tough. Like it was started in the kitchen that afternoon and served at 7 PM."

"I took my boyfriend here as we had Philharmonic Tickets, and the possibility of a time crunch. We didn't want to worry about rushing from a restaurant through the cold to the performance. Reservations were easy, and it looked upon arrival like we wouldn't have needed them. However, closer to the show, they filled UP - this restaurant is located in the lobby of David Geller Hall. The menu is limited but good. Frankly, the food was overpriced - we paid $38 per plate for crab cakes that were clearly premade heated / fried. For two drinks, an app, and (2) entrees, it was over $150.00. However, the atmosphere was nice, service was FAST, and the food was really delicious. If you're looking for something adventurous or unique, I'd look elsewhere, but if you just want delicious CONVENIENT food before a performance, I'd recommend."

"The thing that this restaurant has going for it is its location. For a cold, wet, or snowy night, the Lincoln Center Kitchen is ideal if you are going to an event. The menu is quite limited for the price charged. As with most places, the offerings were of varying quality. The lobster bisque was very good, while the salmon was way over cooked. The chocolate dessert was good, but the blue cheese and bacon macaroni never saw a piece of blue cheese in its life. Service was satisfactory. The prices are fine for the location, but excessive for the food quality. Overall, if you are looking for a super restaurant, look elsewhere. But, if you want decent food inside of Lincoln Center, this is your place."

"We waited for over 5 minutes while the greeter tried to locate a lost reservation for the diners in front of us. Not once did she look up or acknowledge us. And then when we finally got to the head of the line she asked us to wait a minute while she left to take care of something else for a few minutes. After we finally were seated the service picked up considerably thanks to the friendly waiters, until the end when the greeter showed up again and said that the restaurant had a problem with our payment method. The problem, which was the restaurant's error, took a while to undo and made us feel like she didn't trust us. Separate from all of those service issues, the food was not good. Very dry meat, little flavor, sad little side dishes. I don't think they're cooking for knowledgeable or curious diners. I think they are cooking for people who are trying to get a meal in before heading to a show. In short, the prices do not come close to justifying the meal."
