Mostly Atmosphere – When going out for a nice dinner, I like a nice ambiance as well as very good food. While Sapphire is certainly not lacking in ambiance, and probably has the best decor of any Indian restaurant I have been to in New York City, the food was not what I had hoped for.
The main course had an average portion, and was decent overall. The bread and lamb chops I had before the meal were quite good, however. The beverages were excellent, and the dessert was good. While the $20 entree range is not overly expensive, in New York City, there is definitely better food in that range, and so Sapphire, despite it's lovely atmosphere, will most likely not be a restaurant to which I will return. Still, try it once, since if you end up loving the food, it could be one of your best dining experiences.
standard fair – i've been to sapphire twice and both times the food was fine, if not good. stick with the chicken, beef, and lamb dishes. i don't usually order wine with indian so i can't comment on their wine list or their wines. instead ordered an ice cold beer which to me works with indian. service is friendly, and never had a problem walking in and getting a table. i would recommend reservations on weekends though. skip dessert.
Service?? – It would be an excellent dining experience if you were a wealthy person. However, the service for the average customer is well below expections. We were not even asked once how the meal was or whether we needed anything. However the waiter was exceptionally friendly to the table next to us who had a large bill. On the other hand, the food was definitely tasty but the service did not make it worth it.
Excellent!!! – This is a great restaurant. The food was exquisite and the staff was very cordial. The sommelier was top notch. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice, romantic experience. It is a little pricey, but worth every dollar.
A terrific Restaurant – This is a terrific restaurant. The food is excellent; they have a very nice wine list (and a sommelier who knows his stuff); and the staff are exceedingly pleasant. My wife and I have been to Sapphire six or seven times in the last year, and had a great dinner each time. It's a welcome addition to the neighborhood.
"Absolutely, positively you are wrong – My friend & I went to have dinner & enjoy some wine. To our surprise the restaurant had a sommelier. We ordered Riesling. We were not happy w/ the wine-a little fizzy & lacking any alcohol bite. We explain to the sommelier why we're not happy w/ the wine . In his false hi-brow pronunciation, he says: "There is nothing wrong with this wine. I will not take this off of your bill. You are 100% absolutely, positively wrong. I know my wine". We leave $10 on the table & make to leave. At the door, the sommelier comes over with his manager & argues with us about what he said. We refuse to participate in this surreal episode & leave. If Sapphire is aiming to be an upscale Indian restaurant, it would serve its reputation to train it's waitstaff in that age old credo "The customer is always right".
Excellent – A top spot for the Lincoln Center area, we appreciate this lovely restaurant every time we visit. Food is excellent and varied, and the service is generally very good as well. Value is much better than at many of the competing high-end Indian spots in town.
Amazing – I have eaten at many different Indian reastaurants and I must say that this one is by far my favorite. I origionally came here for my friends birthday and the service was amazing, the food was better and I had an even better time. Go here if you are looking for the best. If not, then hit up your local delivery but I must say, it is worth the money.
