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.

The waiter was slow, the lamb chops were not seasoned well, but the bright spot was the olive tapenade and the crostinis.

Food and service are quite good at this Harlem spot, but brunch visitors should be aware that it has become quite a scene, very crowded and noisy. The staff navigates it all very effectively with good humor and delivers high-quality dishes to the table promptly and professionally, but this is definitely not the place for a leisurely Sunday brunch where you linger over coffee etc. Unless you're ok just sitting and listening to the din, that is .....

I always enjoy dining at Lido.

Great spot for brunch, dinner, catching up with friends and (if you have little ones) they are also very kid-friendly.

My only issue was that they do not have a changing table in the restroom. I hope that management considers installing one in the near future.

I left my credit card behind. They not only called to inform me and although the restaurant was closed, they waited for me to return so that I might retrieve my card.

Lido is a good choice for quality food and fresh ambiance in Harlem. The menu is mostly standard Italian but it is prepared with flavor. The outside seating experience is pleasant in good weather. Our server was friendly and efficient.

All four of us have birthdays within a week of each other (same year too) so we had a bday brunch. When I booked a few weeks in advance every timeslot was open.. but they gave us this awkward table where two tables were put together on a corner -- so two of us looked out and two other were on the end. When we asked to move, they said no.

Lido is a lovely place that is a big part of my neighborhood; Harlem. The food, service and atmosphere is excellent. I have experienced the finest restaurants in Manhattan; Per Se, Daniel, etc... My experience with Lido was a very positive one, and I look forward to many repeat visits. This visit, I had the beet salad, chicken piccata, and lemon tart. My wife had the beet salad, and salmon. We both loved our dinner, and are confident you will enjoy yours too. Thank you for high service level, and your talent in the kitchen. Lido makes our part of Manhattan, Harlem, one that I’m glad to live in!

Our reservation was for two but a friend joined us last minute to make three. The hostess said she could not accommodate a third person immediately but we would have to wait for 40 - 50 minutes for a table for three inside or we could eat outside in the heat and humidity. We chose the later, very disappointing to say the least. Mind you, the dining room was practically empty at 6:30 on a Friday night.

Love this place and it always delivers. The food is pretty good and they have bottomless mimosas for brunch.
On this particular visit, the waiter was a little abrasive at first but warmed up to us near the end. However, he also kept leaving us hanging with empty glasses -- both mimosas and water -- which was annoying. More annoying because the other waiter was keeping his people quite well attended and we were having service envy.
Outside of that, the meal was good and we got what we came for which was great ambience, light and fun vibe, bottomless mimosas and reasonably yummy food. My date loved his tangerine pancakes. I'm Gfree so I could not enjoy those but I loved my eggs and so did he. Good portions and reasonable prices.

Always a favorite. Sometimes the noise level is a little overwhelming but it adds to the vibe. Cool Harlem hotspot with good food and drinks. Typically friendly staff with. Couple exceptions. I’ve been going for brunch for a few years. Rarely disappointed. They try to accommodate everybody - even without a reservation, but it’s better if you make one.
