The Zagat Review
Those long performance nights have a “delightful” prelude at this Lincoln Center New American, where the “tasty” if “limited” menu is served in a “dramatic” , chandeliered setting overlooking the Met foyer; tabs are “expensive” , but payoffs include “efficiency” and “dessert at intermission.”

Went to Lincoln Center for the "Salute to Vienna" concert and made reservations at the The Grand Tier for dinner, afterwards. Ambiance, service and cocktails were all very good, as they should have been given the price level and reputation of this restaurant. The appetizers and desert were also good but the main course (braised veal) was barely edible. In fact, one of our guests did not touch it after the first bite. Given that this dish is typically made from an inexpensive cut of meat, extra care must be taken to prepare and serve it properly. They were clearly not up to the task, as the veal was extremely fatty, tough and tasteless. The plating was also lackluster with bland purees that had no discernible tastes. It was a long day and we did not want to extend the evening, otherwise the food would have been sent back.

Like other reviews, I found the apps and drinks to be great however our entrees we're terrible. The salmon was clearly farmed. At this price point it should surely be wild. How disappointing. The rest of the entree was bland. Beef tenderloin entree bland as well. The beef was tasteless.

The veal was fantastic. Order it. The chocolate mousse cake had a nice soft texture but the flavor was a little overpowering , unable to finish it. Servers did a great job and Henry one of staff members was really friendly and made sure I had everything I needed in time for the show & during intermission he also made sure I made it back in time.
