Italian | Harlem, Manhattan

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.

I have been to Mountain Bird and Gaudir, both at this location. You must try both of these restaurants. It’s an excellent choice for a special evening and business meals. Gaudir is at this location on Mondays, and Mountain Bird is there the rest of the week. Both have incredible creative menus; the service is impeccable; prices are moderate; they use the highest quality ingredients. More

Wonderful meals at this hidden gem. Decor complements the experience of very nicely prepared dishes. Staff attentive and offered wine pairing with our food selections. Then there is the food, after all that is what this is about. So very pleased with the calamari and its presentation. The pasta was al dente without even asking, which is not always the case at other restaurants. Looking forward to return visits. The next time you are in Spanish Harlem and thinking about Italian food, this is the place to go. More

I recently moved to Harlem and Savann will be a place I revisit frequently. Lamb meatballs in yogurt will be a repeat order. The bread is . . . homemade and came to the table warm and was great for mezz dipping. I can't wait to try everything on the menu. The wine choices are also really good. I will be coming back with friends for a cozy twosome and also come with back with a larger group as it is perfect for sharing. It's a very comfortable place with excellent food, attentive service and truly great value. More

I would have gave the service 5 stars but the hostess seen me standing there and didnt say anything to me until I said something to her. I know she was doing something..but She could have said I'll be with you in a few minutes. The coat check woman checked me in for reservations and my waitress came to my party and greeted us while we where waiting to be seated. By the way she was an excellent waitress. The food I has was great..no complaints. More

Seafood | Harlem, Manhattan

Diana was a terrific and attentive server last night. My lobster bisque, while very tasty, was overly salted.... kitchen needs to cut way back on the salt, which can easily be added at the table if the diner wants that amount of salt. The nation Red Lobster should heed this advice and trend. Biscuits were delicious, if a bit heavy on the garlic.... a little less would be just as effective. Nice roomy tables and quiet atmosphere. A cpl of spotlights were flickering like strobes and should have been changed before the dinner service as it's quite disruptive, and the bathroom stalls in the ladies room could use attention. Would dine there again. More

Discover Harlem

Renowned for its vibrant culture across music and literature, Harlem’s burgeoning restaurant scene has made it one of the most exciting neighborhoods in the five boroughs. Soul food is always on the menu, but now it has a modern twist—part gourmet, part classic comfort. And it’s not all chicken and waffles uptown. Ramen shops beckon with their slurpy noodles, and down-home seafood shacks sling salt water treasures. To spice it up, you can also explore NYC’s only Somali restaurant for savory pastries and other adventurous eats. Amidst the brownstones and history of Harlem, new flavors await.
