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.

Dinner was amazing and the drinks were excellent as well, the food came out quickly the service fell short!!

The Owner, a woman was at the front door, did not provide any personalization to us as I celebrated my good friend’s birthday. When I first came in the door, she was talking to another couple at the table near the door. It was raining, I had a lot of stuff to set up on the table so I could surprise my friend for her birthday. The owner, did not stop and say hello, do you need assistance and neither did her staff. A few guests who saw me decorating, complimented the table and even the hostess said, “Your friend is very lucky, this is so nice and thoughtful.” Still the owner never came over. After dinner, I made my waiter aware of my displeasure with the Poor customer relations. Sidebar, If you own a restaurant, you should be a people’s person who is warm and friendly with EVERYONE!! Say Hello, it won’t kill you!! At the end before I paid the check, the owner came over with ice cream and a sparkler to say, “Happy Birthday” and she left. No conversation at all! Very disappointed, with a restaurant that has wonderful potential.

I had the ravioli special stuffed with lobster with crab meat on top. It was amazing! Also had their pumpkin cheesecake special - like a creamy pumpkin pie. The coffee was ok - it wasn't strong enough for me.

Disappointed that they have stopped providing olive pesto with the bread. This was one of the major draws to lido for us and we will not be coming again until they bring it back.

Good cocktails, though like so many resaurants, the martini olives were forgettable. Terrific salt cod fritters. Great lamb chops. Why chefs must French lamb chops is beyond me, but the awesomeness of these chops made up for the missing bone meat and fat. Also, began seating our party of four at the appointed hour before all arrived instead of making us stand around.

Old Fashioned was ok- I expected the original classic French style but i got the muddled American style. Steak was over cook. And order the filet mijon and since I'm an industry man myself it wasn't the right cut of meat.

I have had a number of meals at this restaurant and had enjoyed all of them, but both my companion and I were very disappointed with our main courses (the special: pumpkin ravioli with sage, and the salmon for me, and the side dish of puree of spinach was awful.) It was disappointing, especially in light of the good meals we had there before. In fact, my companion eats there a lot and agreed that this was a very disappointing dish and was the first time that she had a bad meal there. We both ate only a fraction of the food. So, I don't know if this was just an off night for them, or portends something more.

We sat at our table at 1pm for the BOTTOMLESS brunch that is promoted for 2 hours. We finished our food around 1:45pm to immediately get our check right after. Our drinks stopped coming around 2:15pm as out waiter disappeared. It wasn't until a lovely woman came over to us to see if we were okay that she poured us something to drink at 1:45pm. Overall, the food was amazing but service was a little off.

I think the food here is so fantastic. I love the vibe in the room! Our dirty martini was perfect. It is actually hard to find a great dirty martini. Often times the glass smells like soap. The wine selection is superb. I celebrated my 50th birthday here and the staff was over the top accommodating. Proprietor, Susannah Koteen , bent over backward to ensure my milestone celebration was perfect!

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.
