Love Indian food and the kind of service one expects from restaurants that serve this food. Pleased to report that Sapphire checks both boxes in an excellent way. I had lunch with a friend which is buffet style. Before you jump to conclusions, let me assure you that the food was well prepared and delicious. The service is top drawer... More

Sapphire Indian Cuisine is perfectly located if you are attending a performance in the Lincoln Center area. They are used to getting people in and out to make a curtain so a good choice for pre performance dinner. The food is traditional Indian so no fancy fusion dishes here but the quality is quite good. They have an adequate bar... More

The location is great - a few minutes walk from the Metropolitan Opera. We attended a matinee and an evening performance on the same day, so needed a convenient and not too expensive place to eat in between shows. It's popular with Lincoln Centre patrons - after the matinee it filled up quite quickly, but it is spacious and gracious.... More

The restaurant was vacant and there were servers everywhere but none seemed to want to work. We were waiting at our table for over two hours waiting for terrible food. I wouldn't recommend anything but the lamb was especially terrible.

The lamb chops were probably the best The shrimp sauce was very bland and unimaginative The lamb was tough The ginger chicken cane with huge chunks absolutely no flavor The bread basket was cold and naans leathery The servers were stoic and typically the male chauvinists that are commonly encountered in India especially towards other Indian women

I dined here after teaching class it next door to NYIT. The restaurant decorum is quite nice and they had a buffet lunch available. The seating was ample and the wait staff was very courteous and professional. The buffet offerings were varied and all was very tasty, which also included dessert items. I look forward to dining here again when... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
