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.

Was at the restaurant about a year ago and really enjoyed it. Not so much this time. Empty but service was mediocre at best. Chicken burger was supposed to have a slaw with it; about a teaspoon. Alas.

I went to Lido with some friends. We were greeted so nicely, and the waiter was very attentive. the food was delicious, fresh and hot. They let us linger there for a long time and we had such a nice evening. The atmosphere is quite nice. The veal meatballs were fantastic as well as the bread pudding for dessert. I would definitely return.

This is a good neighborhood spot. We had no trouble making reservations, and were given a table in a heated outdoor area. The service was ok - but very short. We were disappointed that some past items we came to enjoy were no loner on the menu. I was disappointed with the black ink linguini - very saucy, little soggy - not much seafood. My wife enjoyed her chicken dish better.

Great neighborhood Italian. Food is tasty and good. Portions are good sized. The kale salad is excellent. Calamari is done perfectly. Entrees are quite good as well. Love that the kitchen is flexible with choices. Wine selection is ok. Could use some beefing up with some new varietals but that may just be my personal taste. Service is pretty prompt and am usually seated immediately. It gets busy on evenings and has a lively bar area. I go all the time because service is always consistent which is important to me. I dont always want the newest latest gastro pub experience and Lido fits the bill nicely for good, lively, tasty italian with plenty of seats and a nice neighborhood scene.

It is a good restaurant to have in Harlem. I like the inside, it is warm with no pretention. Now, If we compare the quality of the food to the price, it is overpriced. Also the dessert (bread pudding) was quite disappointing.

Enjoyed the meal, the staff + service could've been handled differently. The hostess brought our check before we could finish the bottle of wine we order and didn't care to acknowledge the fact that we wanted dessert + coffee. At which point I became upset over this small notion. We ended up ordering two espresso's after our meal and skipping dessert for fear of being rushed into consuming that as well. For my second time visiting I was disappointed again with the service of your staff. Perhaps having a portion of tables open saved for walk-ins could prevent this next time. Probably won't visit again, if there is one thing about dining out it's all about the EXPERIENCE and mines has been tainted.

I've been to Lido a few times and it's a great restaurant. On my most recent visit, unfortunately right as I started eating I found a hair in my food. The server was very apologetic and I got a new plate relatively quickly. I was disappointed, however, that nothing other than a "sorry" was offered to make up for such a gross occurrence.

Got to the restaurant early for my reservation was sat by the hostess immediately in a L space corners space which was fine the restaurant was empty however moments later a group came in and the hostess sat them right next to me and my guess boxing us in to the corner. The waiters couldn't reach us they were afraid to come by because they would knock into the two dinner parties that were sitting next to us so the service ended up being poor. I had to get up and reach for my food from the waiter over the other poor dinner parties heads. I had to get up and reach for my drinks from the waiter they didn't come to my table because we were boxed in which ruined the experiance. I wasn't compensated for any of the inconvenience not that I was expecting it but i would have been nice but this is and a cheap restaurant on either. I had to get out of my seat to grab the dinner from the waiter really. Dinner for 2 cost me $200 then the Food was mediocre at best the service was poor, the hostess had poor judgement and the seating arrangment was asinine.

On a rainy Tuesday night in January, Lido was filled mostly with young, attractive neighborhood people both dining and at the bar. The vibe is exciting, and the food is wonderful- beautifully prepared and presented. Much of the menu is rich, but it's well worth the food splurge. Also a very nice wine and bar selection. The service is friendly and professional, and Lido is well worth the visit.

Their bottomless brunch is probably the highlight of this restaurant. I was only upset when I called the restaurant to ask if they served steak and eggs for brunch and the hostess informed me that they do but when we sat down for our reservation we were told otherwise. This place does not carry steak on their menu. My bf ended up ordering meatball pasta and he enjoyed every bite so I guess that makes up for it but please next time make sure your staff knows the menu.

Lido is one of those neighborhood restaurants that you want to eat at even if you're not in the neighborhood. It's been consistently good since it opened. Italian food that's not stuck in a rut, but isn't too fussy either. Great salads, pastas, and good wine that's not over-the-top pricey. I had the muscles with white beans and red sauce and the muscles were tender and not too large, just the right size. You can be healthy or decadent, or somewhere in between, and have a great meal.

Overall my experience was great. Very friendly and accommodating staff. The food wasn't the best I've had but satisfactory for boozy brunch. Mimosas are more bubbly than OJ which is always appreciated. The restaurant is cozy and clean. They originally tried to tell us we met our 2 hour time limit after just one hour but I was able to give notice to the hostess who quickly corrected the problem. Seemed a little suspect since we did have a 12:45 reservation and time was called at 1:45 pm instead of 2:45 pm so my advice would be to pay attention to when your brunch begins to avoid being cut short.
