I do not consider myself “hard to please” as I love live theatre but this was excruciating to sit through. It is story telling through dance. The stories are as ancient as the dance. Our Olympic gymnastic team is much more interesting to watch. The music was also challenging to enjoy. Don’t waste your time or money.

Wonderful place in New York City. An oasis of culture and peace. One of the not to be missed sites for any visitor to NYC. This place offers something for everyone who is interested in the Arts - classical music, opera, ballet, theater, cinema. Admire the Chagal windows, the Henry Moore sculptures or just sit and relax on the benches or the grass surrounding Lincoln Center. One of my favorite places in New York City!

After looking around the area for a quick dinner before the ballet we ended up rather reluctantly going to The Kitchen at Lincoln Center which looked not busy at all but actually was super packed. We were quickly escorted to a nice table in the large dining room. Our awesome waitress asked up if our show was 7:30 or 8, Love NY! So we ordered seafood chowder and light pasta dish. To our delight and actual surprise it was outstanding! And not too pricey for this location. The bread was fabulous too. The fresh fish I saw being delivered to tables looked like the best I've seen. Highly recommend this place!

It's really a pleasure to visit Lincoln Center. Located some blocks from Central Park, it's a must for Art lovers. You can enjoy watching opera at the Metropolitan Opera House, ballet,or theatre or being delighted listening to a concert. Julliard School is also there.

After buying tickets or walking around Lincoln Center , stop at the Starr Theater Café located in the theater lobby with a direct entrance on Broadway. Pleasant seating , free WiFi, great coffee, a variety of food , easy access and even restrooms on the same floor ( no stairs). It is easy to find . I often have coffee here with my friends ( see photos)
