Lido’s menu is Northern Italian. The menu can be described as fresh, simple, and delicious. Flavors are layered so that each one stands out but does not compete with others in the dish.

The food is organic and local whenever possible and all poultry and meats are from farms that treat animals humanely.

The ambiance is modish but relaxed. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Great place. Lively. Friendly. Excellent waitstaff. Clean. Great outdoor seating. Even outdoors, quite noisy - like pretty much all of the restaurants up and down Frederick Douglass Blvd

Learned about the Lido earlier in the day from the owner and decided to go with my daughter for dinner. Amazing. Great food, right sized portions. Everything was very fresh and the outdoor dining was great. What a gem. Service was just right and great recommendations. Mark and Suzanne you have a great restaurant and all the best.

Always a solid place to go for cocktails / wine and dinner. Veal meatballs never disappoint and the Squid Ink pasta with seafood was terrific. Staff is attentive and when a friend disliked her cocktail they replaced it without any questions.

From the moment we walked in we were treated like old friends who were warmly welcomed with open arms and big smiles. We were given a beautiful table by the window and the ambiance was excellent. A very alive and interesting bar scene but not noisy at all. Menu had multiple delicious options and the specials were both interesting and abundant. Food was outstanding as was the wine we were recommended. Have an interesting and delicious cocktail menu. Service was attentive and pleasant. Could not be any more pleased. Will definitely return and recommend wholeheartedly!

I don't have that much to say about my experience, other than to compliment the servers and hostess, who both performed capably. I dined al fresco, which was much more enjoyable than I had anticipated. Overall, it's a good restaurant, even if it's a bit pricier than I anticipated.

This was our second time to Lido, but only first time for dinner. Excellent menu with several fish options as well as pastas and steak. My halibut was the best I think I have had. Would have liked to have tried dessert , but my portion of fish and risotto was too generous!
The other time we ate here was brunch with a large group. Great atmosphere, feels like classic New York!

Went there for brunch and it was amazing. My girlfriend and I had omelets, smoked salmon, bacon, and greens. Food was great and mimosas were on point. Menu look tasty but we settle for the salmon and omelette instead lol.

Came to brunch with my boyfriend because we were hungry lol.. I had the smoked salmon Benedict which waa cooked to perfection and he has some kind of sausage omelette. The service was great with bottomless mimosas. I only have two complaints. One is that our server seemed to have disappeared for what felt like forever and two I also had the biscuit with some kind of honey butter and the biscuit was burnt. Overall great experience. Great ambiance, and a great way to start my day.

I would go again but they should consider basic breakfast options

First time ! Came for dinner for my sons graduation from medical school at the nearby Apollo Theater. Very pleasant atmosphere Friendly staff, attentive but not overbearing. Very comfortable seating and a very clean place. (even in restrooms). The food was delicious. portions were perfect for dinner and the plating very appealing. Everything was fresh. Casual unpretentious and very good value. We will be back.

I went to Lido for brunch and did the bottomless mimosa option and had the gnocchi pasta. The pasta was absolutely fantastic and the mimosas were very strong. I got the sense that the waiter was trying to get us to leave before our 2 hours were up, but when we explained we wanted to continue drinking, he was pleasant enough and continued to bring refills.

Saturday I had a party of 9 which is quite a big group for brunch, and the restaurant handled us great. Waiter was very attentive and nice. Food was really good and of course bottomless brunch deal is hard to beat. Good food, nice presentation and not too loud. Was definitely worth going all the way from Chelsea to Harlem.

Lido is always a pleasure. Consistently good food with changing menu as the seasons change. Enjoyed first rate cheese garlic bread, salad with pear chunks, toasted nuts, light dressing, crispy chicken with garlic mashed potatoes, chocolate budino with a new topping, two glasses of cabernet. Outdoor area on Frederick Douglass Blvd is now enclosed.

I Love Lidos ! The food is amazing and the staff is always on point. I typically go for brunch and the mimosas are always good they never overload the OJ like some places that offer unlimited! If I ever have folks visiting from out of take them to Lidos it’s a no brainer. Give this staff a raise they deserve it !!!
