Do the tasting menu if you can swing it. Totally worth it.
Awarded one star (★) in the 2015 Michelin Guide for NYC restaurants.
Great negronis. I didn't know there could be so much negroni variability-- let the bartender guide you based on your tastes
You ABSOLUTELY MUST get a side of mushrooms
The Branzino with salsify and oyster mushroom was well done. The butternut and vin santo sauce went well. However the beef dish isn't very memorable.
Had the pasta duo to start. The saffron seafood pasta was too strong on the Meyer lemon. Couldn't taste the seafood. The buckwheat pasta was good however
Out of the bread basket, get the focaccia and grissini. Forget the sesame bread- not very memorable. Focaccia had the right amount of olive oil and amazing freshly ground black pepper.
2015 James Beard nominee for Best Chef - Jonathan Benno
Great food that I would put at two Michelin stars. The portion sizes are a little bigger than what would expect from fine dining so be careful with the four course menu.
Best meal I've had all year. Get the shaved truffles, you won't be sorry.
So fabulously manhattany that I literally turned into Woody Allen
Pastas and cocktails! Can't go wrong. Lovely area outside for people watching or inside for the open kitchen.
Excellent service and ambiance. Delicious appetizers but tasteless entrees.
A gorgeous view is best complemented with excellent food. Don't skip dessert, as the Fruit Crostata is delicious.
Everything. The food, service, ambiance. Perfect for theater goers.
If the Broccoli Rabe Orecchiette dish is still on the Primi menu then order it. Delicious.
Rustic Italian dishes like squid-ink and rabbit & sweetbread terrine pasta are popular choices at Jonathan Brenno’s first restaurant.
The bartenders seem to be mixologists. I asked the waiter to make me a spicy tequila drink (not on the cocktail menu) and they delivered in spades. It was a basil / jalapeño / hint of pineapple drink.
Attentive service, killer prosecco and negroni bar, and delicious plates of veal tortellini in brodo and duck confit!! Other plates also highlight the Emilia-Romagna region beautifully.
Apple cider donuts = one of the best desserts of all time. stunning views of Lincoln center.
One Michelin star
Apple cider donuts are the best thing ever
Ask about the Italian region highlighted monthly. House-made pastas stand out, as does rustic porchetta & polenta. – Green Guide Editor
Impeccable service. Get the lobster pasta, tiramisu and the formaggi platter. Sister loved the prosecco options as well. Pricey but worth the splurge before a show, or for a special occasion
While Jonathan Benno's Lincoln is quite a formal place for a meal, their bar is a bit more laid-back.
Spectacular scallop and lobster pasta. Prosecco choices are fab - love the peach and passion fruit purée. Excellent service as well!
Selection of food and wines are impeccable.
Their pastas are great variation !!
Side dish mushroom is a must!!
Jeffrey's White Negroni: Blue Coat American Gin, Breckenridge, Massican Bianco. Slightly alpine and delicious!
Try any of the pasta and lamp chop, they can never go wrong at Lincoln restaurant.
Amazing food, ambiance and service.
Delicious food!!!. Try the Halibut or the duck. The desserts are to die for. Leave more than 20% tip, really great service.
The service is great! And it's best to do the tasting course!
Try the Passera Con Brodo Allo Zafferano
Try the Paparadelle Al Pepe Nero Con Anatra
Try the Carpaccio Di Polpo
Excellent wine selection!
Classy negroni bar, with plenty of fragrant options for even those who dislike bitters.
Wow. Just wow.
Really excellent for lunch, and a good deal too!
The most amazing christmas gift of Nebbiolo and white truffles!
The burrata is amazing!
