    With its floor-to-ceiling windows looking out over Lincoln Center, this Upper West Side Italian restaurant is an elegant spot to sip a glass of wine and people watch on the plaza. Read more

    All the small touches, from the amuse and bread service to the caramels before the check, appear even if you're only popping in for a negroni and bowl of agnolotti. Read more

    Love the portion! The food was good and was good quality, everything I had (salmon crudo and egg pasta) were just on the saltier side for me

    Impeccable service. Get the lobster pasta, tiramisu and the formaggi platter. Sister loved the prosecco options as well. Pricey but worth the splurge before a show, or for a special occasion

    The brunch is definitely a splurge, but besides the delicious food, it's a beautiful space over looking the Revson Fountain at Lincoln Center, and the service is always wonderful. Read more

    Attentive service, killer prosecco and negroni bar, and delicious plates of veal tortellini in brodo and duck confit!! Other plates also highlight the Emilia-Romagna region beautifully.

    Perfect spot to dine before a performance at the Met – try the Ricotta Dumplings or the Shrimp Scampi. Or just enjoy a glass or two from their extensive wine list.

    Out of the bread basket, get the focaccia and grissini. Forget the sesame bread- not very memorable. Focaccia had the right amount of olive oil and amazing freshly ground black pepper.

    Pastas and cocktails! Can't go wrong. Lovely area outside for people watching or inside for the open kitchen.

    One of the best meals I've had in NYC. Best barrel-aged Negroni I've ever tasted. The Fusilli Calabrese is the perfect balance of smokey and spicy.

    The menu changes daily, but retains a focus on high-end, contemporary Italian cuisine like cod and tortellini served in a prosciutto broth, and lasagna made with a veal, beef, and pork ragu. Read more

    A gorgeous view is best complemented with excellent food. Don't skip dessert, as the Fruit Crostata is delicious.

    Spectacular scallop and lobster pasta. Prosecco choices are fab - love the peach and passion fruit purée. Excellent service as well!

    Ask about the Italian region highlighted monthly. House-made pastas stand out, as does rustic porchetta & polenta. – Green Guide Editor

    Great food that I would put at two Michelin stars. The portion sizes are a little bigger than what would expect from fine dining so be careful with the four course menu.

    Great negronis. I didn't know there could be so much negroni variability-- let the bartender guide you based on your tastes

    Delicious food!!!. Try the Halibut or the duck. The desserts are to die for. Leave more than 20% tip, really great service.

    The bartenders seem to be mixologists. I asked the waiter to make me a spicy tequila drink (not on the cocktail menu) and they delivered in spades. It was a basil / jalapeño / hint of pineapple drink.

    Rustic Italian dishes like squid-ink and rabbit & sweetbread terrine pasta are popular choices at Jonathan Brenno’s first restaurant.

    While Jonathan Benno's Lincoln is quite a formal place for a meal, their bar is a bit more laid-back.

    Nice, Elegant n classy but the experience could b better n my waiter assumed I wanted my food well done ( bc I look young) disrespectful -- been 5+ times when opened but probably wouldn't go again

    The Branzino with salsify and oyster mushroom was well done. The butternut and vin santo sauce went well. However the beef dish isn't very memorable.

    One of our favorite desserts of the year is the Fritelle De Mele here, an impeccably turned-out apple fritter crowned with caramel gelato. Featured in Where to Eat 2011! Read more

    If the Broccoli Rabe Orecchiette dish is still on the Primi menu then order it. Delicious.

    Had the pasta duo to start. The saffron seafood pasta was too strong on the Meyer lemon. Couldn't taste the seafood. The buckwheat pasta was good however

    Decent Italian for pre-theater dining. Food doesn’t quite live up to the architecture, but it’s good as are the cocktails.

    If a Negroni is what you crave, look no further. Lincoln has a Negroni bar and one of the best in the city. Period.

    Amazing lunch! Make sure to view the open kitchen and order the pasta with squash and pesto-you will not regret! Don't pass on dessert

    Loved the design and architecture inside and out of this restaurant but unfortunately not a big fan of their food. The effort is there you can see it but the taste isn't.
