Description: 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.

Nine of us dined here before seeing “My Fair Lady” at Lincoln Center. We had spent the better part of the day inside, so the glass walls made us feel as though we were outside. The wait staff was incredible and the food was wonderful. My salmon was perfectly cooked and I am very particular about that. I had a gnocchi filled with a summer squash purée that was incredibly delicious! Will certainly recommend this restaurant to others.

Three friends and I met for dinner there--and the setting, food, and service lived up to our expectations. The ambience is quite formal but snug in a banquette, we had a delicious dinner and enjoyed the evening in elegant, peaceful, and attentive setting.

This was a great surprise. The food, service and atmosphere were all much better than I had anticipated.
We had a great table with a very attentive server.
Our main courses and deserts were all very good.
Very enjoyable.

Lincoln Ristorante at Lincoln Center is simply the best. We have dined there several times and never been disappointed. The food is excellent and creative, the service is impeccable, and the atmosphere can't be beat. They have the best deserts we have had in New York City. Lincoln is perfect for before theater at the Center. It is also a destination in itself. (Please note, this restaurant is probably not appropriate for children.)

I made reservations a month ahead of time. It was a birthday celebration. Since we were seated when restaurant opened, the place was mainly empty. Why in the world, knowing it was a special occasion, would they seat a family with 2 children right next to us. Even though the food was wonderful, the meal was tainted.
