  • We saw the NYPO playing Beethoven and Shostakovich, and loved it. Lots of space to mingle and a great balcony to watch the world go by. Acoustic in the hall was good, even though we were in Row QQ, 2n...  more »
  • Nice venue and location. Seats aren't the most comfortable; however, the quality of the performance makes you forget about the seats. Highly recommend!  more »

  • Elegant, classy, and lavish. The acoustics are fantastic. The music sounds so layered, rich, and evocative. One doesn't need to be tight at the front to hear the music well. The venue itself is almost reason enough to come here. It's so grandiose and wondrous- fitting for a place that so radiantly appreciates music as the high art that it is.
  • A magical venue with performers to match. The music is a pleasure as well as the area - Lincoln Square is one of the most beautiful places in the city. Will come back soon!
