The Smith- Lincoln Square
The Smith- Lincoln Square
(6795)
American | Lincoln Square, Manhattan

I found it too noisy-- I am a middle-aged resident of the neighborhood, and when I dine out I want to have a conversation. i'm not interested in restaurants that measure their trendiness by the noise level. Still, I am more tolerant of background noise and loud music than my spouse and most of my friends. This time I came with a friend who doesn't like noise at all and would have left if we hadn't been able to find a table outside where it was less noisy. Once we were seated there we enjoyed the evening and the food very much. The waiter was not knowledgeable about the wine list, however, and seemed to be winging it when we asked for recommendations on certain dishes. Perhaps he was new--but at this price point I kind of expect the wait staff to have been trained so that they can confidently discuss specific dishes and beverages. Only other complaint-- the wine served in tumblers seems gimmicky and doesn't enhance the wine. There's a reason for the tradition of stemware-- stem glasses keep the wine fresher because your hand doesn't warm the wine. More

American | Lincoln Square, Manhattan

Casual dining at its best. Great food and service and the well known and loved ambiance of P. J. Clark's. Can get a little noisy, especially with people at the bar. Great location if you are going to Lincoln Center and a less expensive alternative to restaurants in Lincoln Center. Less crowded on Mondays. More

This restaurant has a menu which seems to hardly ever change. The Limited selection of wines are of good quality but highly overpriced. Sides of mac and cheese which were popular and excellent disappeared from the menu and have never been seen again. More
