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

We took a work group here and had a great lunch with a small but adequate selection of dishes. Lovely people and an attractive room.

Went on a Sunday morning with friends while on vacation in NYC. What a great spot! Lively and staff is so friendly and efficient! If you like mimosas...go for bottomless mimosas, dont lie to yourself! Price is right, drink is perfect and your glass will always be full! Poached eggs on potatoes were divine - poached on polenta was incredibly... More

As always, I'm usually out with my friends when I'm trying restaurants. This place has a really good crowd for Sunday brunch. This place is in Harlem and it was a great mix of people. The jam and the bread were nice. The menu wasn't really interesting as I don't like poached eggs or hollandaise. HOWEVER- the spaghetti with the... 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.
