Lido Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Lido Restaurant is known for its view and stylish dining room, while its menu leans towards the Mediterranean with dishes such as sea bass puttanesca and braised lamb shank. However, we’ve also enjoyed the flavors of the pulled pork sandwich, Thai coconut soup, and Mongolian baby-back ribs. Some offerings are less successful than others --- the deconstructed carbonara for one --- but those are more than offset by the likes of the deceptively hearty parsnip mushroom ragù, the just-rich-enough duck confit with frisée, and the “fifty-fifty” dessert, which will take your taste buds right back to childhood with its vanilla bean ice cream and tangerine sorbet. The wine list is well chosen, highlighting both local and global labels and a good by-the-glass list. You can also enjoy a cocktail from the full bar.
