Lincoln is upscale, quiet, delicious and expensive, service impeccable. We had lunch before the ballet. Figs and prosciutto, egg and polenta, followed by ravioli, French toast, steak. All delicious. Didn’t have time for dessert. Our children were treated very well.

I was underwhelmed by the food. The location and atmosphere are very New York, but the food was just average. They did not take creative liberties, which means in a city like New York, when you don't try and out do the others, you fall...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,
