It's a bit tight, but then so is NYC real estate. But the food and the service make up for it. We've been coming to Lido since it opened and we will keep coming back.

Nice selection of creative dishes. Salmon was moist and flavorful; scallops likewise delicious, served on a bed of red beets. Reasonably priced, good service. Definitely a good stop.

We had a nice brunch. It was early, so not too noisy, but by the time we left, it was noisy. Our waiter was very attentive and we enjoyed our food.

Description
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.
