Fantastic food and experience - Eduardo, GM, could not have been more attentive and helpful in addressing our questions. His recommendations were spot on. Wish every dining experience was like this one!! More

French | Lincoln Square, Manhattan

The service is excellent here as is the food. I ordered the duck and received a generous portion which was perfectly prepared. My wife ordered seafood ravioli which I sampled and it was amazing. It is a small intimate restaurant, very authentic, and a wonderful place to spend time. I enjoy this restaurant most when I am not in a rush, such as I sometimes am when having a pre-theater meal.

Mexican | Lincoln Square, Manhattan

Waiting to be seated we had a drink at the bar and the bartender had to make two margaritas because they tasted so bad that I could not drink them so I changed to their standard pomegranate margarita… Very unusual but it happened. Food was amazing as always although it is a little bit pricey and the service was fantastic. More

Excellent food, helpful with picking gluten free options, friendly service! Cant wait to go back. Next time I need to remember to take some gluten free soy sauce packets. Otherwise I highly recommend getting the whole duck on the lettuce wraps. More

Bar / Lounge / Bottle Service | Lincoln Square, Manhattan

This is an expensive arrangement, and you more or less serve yourself. We had to go to the bar and order drinks/food. We'd carry both back, unless the food wasn't ready - then it was brought to the table. The food is good, nothing special. However, we only did appetizers. So let's just say the food met our needs and requirements. As a get-together and hangout on a rooftop spot, this can't really be beat by many places - all rooftops are expensive. But on a warm, sunny evening, and having the entire corner to ourselves it was worthwhile. So, food and drink expensive, ambience and location excellent. Great views. Definitely worthwhile, but it's very dependent on what you're looking for. More

Chinese | Lincoln Square, Manhattan

Appetizers, chicken Soong and soup dumplings, were very good. The mains were fish filets (tasty and perfectly cooked, but bland) and a shrimp dish labeled spicy but with very little spice and a lot of sweetness. More

L C Kitchen is consistently good for food and service. The menu doesn't change much, but the food is usually very good quality. For such a busy place, the noise level is moderate. The staff are excellent taking care of customers, and the convenience of being so close to venues is valuable. More
