I heard Lido was a good restaurant me and a few friends figured we would try it out. As soon as we walked in I wanted to leave... It's very dark and grungy... Dirty looking... But we sat down and ordered anyway... The salad was good... then again not much to making a good salad... When we recieved our dinners... IT WAS HORRIBLE... I ordered string beans with my dinner and got CANNED MUSHY beans... My veal parm was OK... could've gotten a bigger portion at any dinner... my 2 friends ordered steaks and returned the dishes because the steaks were tough and over cooked with burnt pieces... we all tasted their steaks and they were terrible... they tasted sour from bring burnt on the broiler... my mother friend forced himself to eat his chewy sour steak and had a stomachache all night... we ordered cooked onions on the side with the steaks and recieve a dish with a pile of black stuff that were the burnt to a crisp onions... those were returned also. we left and will never go back... you really do get what you pay for at the LIDO... Its amazing this place is even still running... Id rather spend $10 dollars at McDonalds
Lived in Hackensack NJ for over 10 yrs. Heard this place had good pizza. Husband and I decided to go because we always see people in and out during dinner hours and parking lot is packed. This place is not for the health conscience type. We ordered the steak sandwich and pizza. The sandwich is not really a sandwich. It had sooo much butter and grease. The pizza is ok, thin crust and salty. My husband and I are always conscience about what we eat. I do not think we will go back. The decor also needs an update. It looks grundgy.
Reviews on Lido's pizza and ‘famous’ steak sandwiches were great so we decided to try it out. We ordered a pizza and steak sandwich. The pizza was very salty and the steak sandwich didn’t have any flavor or seasoning – I had to add salt and pepper. We didn’t get anything else on the menu so other items might be better. We were left feeling disappointed and unsatisfied. And there was no ambiance.
Now I rate Lido's a 5 star based on food and food alone - particularly the sliced steak and the pizza. I recommend not deviating from those menu items as you may be disappointed. This is not a burger or pasta joint (although good, not phenomenal), it is a pizza and sliced steak joint! If you walk in and it is a bit off putting, remember that this isn’t Friday's! They aren't trying to lure you there on atmosphere. They pride themselves on good food and service and don't advertise because their clientele does it for them. This is how it has been for over 35 years and that’s how I want them to stay! Lido's, you are the best!
Agree with the first review. The restaurant is not gorgeous by a long run, the food ( pizza) thin crusted excellent- but the staff - they have their moments & days. Some of those waitresses are just out right rude which makes the entire experience not pleasant. They need to be given a workshop on manners & how to be a people person. AND THEN THEY expect a genereous tip or next time you will be completely annoyed. Others I have spoken to feel the same.
Great place! Good value for your money. There is a reason there is always a wait. You don't find good quality like this for the money anymore. If you are looking for atmosphere and fu-fu decor then don't bother going here. This place has probably been the same since over 20+ years ago and that makes it so great. They've got good food for good prices. I've never been able to find a better sliced steak anywhere around.
Lido is great afordable place to dine..espically now a days.Sliced Steak is good and thin crust pizza .Not crazy about their salad but the rest of the food was pretty good for the money. Bit dark inside but is nice comfortable booths service is ok depends who you get for a waitress.I been dining there a long time very casual dress. I would definately recommend trying Lido's. If you looking for something more fancy then try some place else.Overall pretty good food and the food is served HOT always. Give them a try .
