Italian
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.

Our party of 5 was seated in one of the outdoor/indoor spaces. With all the windows covered and only one door open. It was warm in there with little to no air circulation. The music was inconsistent. As if the playlist was on someone's iPhone in their pocket. Sometimes loud, sometimes quiet. Always aggressive. The food was fine. The flies, less so.

I made a reservation over a week ago and indicated that it was a special occasion “Anniversary” and we were seated at possibly the worst table in the entire restaurant.
Considering it was a special occasion and they were informed, one would think they would make an effort to ensure that the occasion was notable.

Nonetheless, the portions were substantial and the food was delicious…..The server was attentive and pleasant.

I was just here a few days prior to this review and I gave five stars now I can’t say the same. I’ve been to this establishment about 15 times so it’s safe to say I enjoy coming here as I really enjoy the food and service is usually good. However This last visit I was disappointed in the entire experience. I had made an outside reservation for 4, 2 of us were present. Although I have a bad back and needed to sit we were denied to sit outside to wait for our guest although we had a reservation and we were there on time. I can understand this policy if the seating outside was limited however all tables were empty except for 2. My husband and I would have started ordering drinks and starters as soon as we sat but we were not allowed to sit and were treated rudely and constantly in the way of staff quickly running in and out of the restaurant as there wasn’t a place to stand.The way the situation was handled wasn’t good and as we were about to leave our friends arrived and I decided to stay because I thought at least the food was good. Long story short our waiter was snappy, obnoxious and not welcoming. The first time I’ve experienced this at Lido. We had no flatware on our table after our food was served and had to wait to eat , no apology on that. One patron at our table asked for a side order of risotto and the waiter quickly snapped back and said no. We don’t have that you can only order what’s on the menu! Another member of our party said it is on the menu as part of an entrée. A server should know this. Quite frankly I was a little shocked and embarrassed by his snappy response. The calamari was overcooked and dry, my salmon which was extremely dry had zero taste, the snapper ordered also was over cooked and had little flavor. I don’t know what happened this past Friday but Lido you are better than this.

Great experience at Lido for a friend’s birthday. Food and service were excellent; my only complaint was that it was a little cold with all the fans on and front doors open.

Beautiful fall day for brunch and Lido made it possible. We sampled the menu widely, pancakes, French toast, and two panini. All were super delicious. My only concern was that my open face panini was nearly impossible to cut with a butter knife and with perfectly cooked poached eggs, impossible to pick up and bite into. Eventually gave up and asked for a steak knife, but I was the last to finish my meal. Knife came quickly upon request. Took home the pumpkin cheesecake with the yummy fall toffee, only to find the crust burned—still delicious. It says something that even with less than perfect execution the food was so delicious and the service so cheerful, I’m already looking forward to our next visit.

Great food and service, though we did feel a bit pressured to eat quickly when we paused in dining. Found a hair in one of our appetizers and the waitstaff profusely apologized, quickly got us a new order, and comped us that item on the bill. Everything was delicious and I appreciated the measures taken to ensure all diners were vaccinated and had space between them while dining.

My husband and I hadn't been to Lido in two years and it was JUST as good as we remembered it. The food is great! The vibe is great! In my opinion, it's one of the best, if not THE BEST, restaurant in Harlem! And you MUST get the truffle gnocchi!

Lido is a terrific restaurant on Harlem's Restaurant Row. Known for its Italian Faire, brunch is especially popular. With a modern twist on standard brunch favorites, you can also select Italian adaptations with delicious bites such as polenta. The inside is fresh and upscale. Service was excellent. Covid safety was on-target.

Limited disjointed uninspired menu. Execution of dishes was amateurish and not at all in line with what one would expect, given the pedigree and reputation of the Executive Chef/co-owner. Quality of the ingredients was poor (mealy tomatoes, served up in large coarse cuts, including the stem scar, and bruised nectarines and lame chunks of cheese in their seasonal salad, for example; gummy gnocchi with odd hard bits of some unidentifiable ingredient mixed in, no real truffle flavor as promised). I learned that the Executive Chef is rarely there, showing up at the restaurant only occasionally to check in. This place could be so much more and so much better. Here's hoping the Chef shows up more regularly and takes charge of the food again. Service, on the other hand, was attentive, friendly, and trying hard to please.

Disclaimer, I don’t write reviews because rarely have I had an experience so bad that it has urged me to write a review. This is the first time I’ve ever thought about getting up and walking out of an establishment, and I likely would have been able to without any confrontation, given that our waiter and basically all the staff forgot about us and left us waiting for over 40 minutes after our meal; sitting and waiting for a sever, or anyone for that matter, to ask us if we wanted the check or dessert, or really just make sure we were alright. To top it off, our server passed by our table at least 15 times and not once did he look, glance, or side eye our way. Instead we had to take it upon ourselves to go to the front to ask for our check, which in itself took another 15 minutes. For what should have, and could have, been a great brunch, turned into two people left and forgotten at their table.

We had a wonderful dinner last night at Lido. We were seated for our reservation promptly and the pacing of our salads and entrees was perfect. The pear salad and the beet salad were delicious and the fish entree and the spaghettini and veal meatballs were wonderful. Service was professional and cheerful. It was a lovely evening and sitting outside was great.
Really a top spot.
