We were not sure of where to eat nearby Lincoln Center before the opera and decided to eat at Sapphire as we saw many clients inside, which is a good sign. Good choice! Food was very good and at a reasonable price, service was also good and we were very pleased.

with all the restaurants near Lincoln Center, we were unable to find any that would suit my vegan husband. Wish we had discovered Sapphire before, we enjoyed their sumptuous buffet, reasonably priced, and no loud "music" to assault our ears. We'll be back!!

We drive to NYC from Vermont 2-3 times a year to go to the opera and broadway shows. We love Sapphire - the Saag, Lamb Chop starter and main dish, eggplant nut dish, naan,dal - I could eat there every night.

Hello, I am a vegetarian and live close by Sapphire. I love getting their lunch vegetarian box for take out or delivery, I have never actually eaten in the restaurant, but the food is spectacular and a great value.

Channa masala, fish tikka, kerala chicken, palace paneer are well done, however they are a bit heavier than homemade food, still, the taste os authentic

Buffet lunch is the way to go here. Many choices at buffet including white meat chicken tandoori, curries, tikka masala, all flavorful and good quality. Veggie options also good. Very nice atmosphere, much nicer than you'd expect for a buffet lunch. Service was attentive. I'd go again.

I ate at Sapphire earlier this evening, and I must say, the food quality is slightly better than that other places, but not by much. And once you factor in poor atmosphere, value, and service, you're in for one annoying meal, my friend. The shrimp appetizer was a joke - it came with FOUR shrimp. And these were not colossal shrimp by any means - these were very standard 21/25 per pound Shop Rite-level shrimp. At $2.25/shrimp, they've got to up the quality and/or quality. The lamb vindaloo was also very skimpy, especially for the $21 asking price. Also, as other reviewers have mentioned, neither rice nor bread is included. The flavor and the cut of the lamb was alright, but does not even come close to warranting the price. In fact, I don't think it would have impressed me even at $11. On the plus side, the Shiraz was a very tasty Californian, which clocked in at $9/glass. Fair enough. Other than fair wine, mediocre food, and exorbitant pricing, Sapphire does deliver in other areas: The atmosphere will feel forced and fake through the actions of an overdressed, undertrained, and most likely underpaid staff. Also, they didn't have the A.C. on in late June, (although, this was arguably done to give diners an "authentic" experience of eating in India). In conclusion, I will never go back.
