A lovely little local find that we were delighted to discover. Gorgeous Italian food and efficient service. We were lucky to get a fabulous Kiwi waitress who made our night that much more special. Overall, we'd definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes good food and a nice atmosphere.

My friends and i went to Lido for brunch. We were staying in Harlem and wanted to brunch somewhere in the neighborhood. It had a really cool vibe the service was super quick. Granted we were there soon as it opened so everyone was fresh. Alex was our server and was awesome. He indulged our foolery and obsession with the... More

The perfect brunch. First love the truly diverse atmosphere. Such a refreshing change from just about every other sit down I've experienced in NYC. This place checks all the boxes for brunch with friends: great menu and tasty food, awesome ppl watching and atmosphere, bottomless drinks. Not a negative word to say about this place. I'll be back!

I went here for breakfast and had their pancakes. It was decent. Nothing spectacular or amazing. I felt like I could made better ones at home. I also had pasta here for dinner and it was just ok. I think maybe they do not go for the wow factor. So if you are looking for a regular meal with no... More

At least mid-day on a Monday, Lido was uncrowded and quiet. A very good place for lunch. The food was excellent and the service was very good as well. The lunch menu featured a number of pasta dishes, a salmon dish, and several salads. Our group of 5 had two pasta dishes, two salads, and one salmon dish. All were... More

Enjoyed a celebration dinner after the NYC marathon. We had reservations and the table was ready for us upon arrival. Wait staff was attentive without being overbearing. Ambiance of resturant was very pleasant. Food was tasty. The vegetables used as a bed for my fish were a bit overcooked. But in fairness it was the type of vegetables--zucchini and yellow... More

I really enjoyed my experience at this restaurant. The ambiance of the space and lighting were perfect for a weekend catch up with one of my friends. I'd highly recommend making reservations (during peak hours) as it fills up quickly. Luckily we made it in before the rush and were able to be seated at the bar. There are regular... More

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.
