I had a dinner together with my son(we were in very casual). First, the reception was telling me that it is a formal dinning place that we should at least have 2 main courses, and recommending us somewhere else nearby. This was rude and disrespectful....More

Lunch was fixed at $29,00 Go somewhere else for dinner. The food is only fair and the service is very slow. There are several restaurants across the street from Lincoln Center. Bar Bolud is great.

At Lincoln Ristorante, we offer Chef Shea Gallante’s interpretation of 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. We rely on local farmers and purveyors along with weekly visits to our neighborhood Tucker Square Greenmarket, while importing irreplaceable items from Italy. We honor the Italian culinary tradition of making our own fresh pastas, grissini, and focaccia. Desserts, by Richard Capizzi, are beautiful renditions of Italy’s classics: light, lush and irresistible. A focus and commitment to freshness and respect for every ingredient is paramount in our daily life.
